Screaming, flying, fighting, destruction: a new UK TV Spot for Man of Steel has it all. The film opens on June 14, which is coming faster than a speeding bullet. Can you believe we’re just over one month away from seeing what director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan have in store for the Superman legend?
Check out stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon and more in this new spot below. Read More »

While nothing has been said officially, TV By The Numbers and IGN are reporting that ABC has picked up the Marvel television series spin-off Agents of SHIELD for a debut this Fall.
While ABC has not made an official announcement, they briefly (likely accidentally) published a video on their youtube page, a viral teaser for the upcoming show. The video shows some captured video of The Incredible Hulk causing destruction, captured from a distance. A small logo/badge that reads “Rising Tide” appears on the lower right hand part of the screen. While ABC has removed the video, it seems to still online elsewhere (for now). Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

Iron Man 3 isn’t the only big Audi commercial you can see right now. Here’s a long spot featuring Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto playing gently fueding versions of themselves in a sales pitch for Audi’s new ride.
Sure, there’s an aspect to this ad that panders right to the Trek fanbase, and some of this spot is just silly. But it also has a few genuinely entertaining moments, as lens flares mar shots of Quinto and Nimoy sings ‘The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins‘ and throws out a little Star Trek II reference. Check it out below. Read More »
Many TV spots do little more than rearrange footage from a film’s primary trailers into 30-second bites. And that’s fine. But the Man of Steel TV spots have been giving up perhaps more new footage than usual, and this third spot has quite a grand scope packed into half a minute.
The capper is a shot of one very angry Superman (Henry Cavill) as he flies into action, but there are also some quick new shots of Michael Shannon as General Zod, and some action and effects bits that we haven’t seen before. All in all, it’s probably the most epic TV commercial that will be airing this month, so have a look below if you haven’t already seen it. Read More »
The latest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel did a lot to convince people that the director of 300 and Watchmen was in fact the right choice for the film. The continuation of a certain tone from Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies doesn’t help, but Snyder’s casting choices — Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, and Henry Cavill as Superman — are persuasive arguments that his sense of direction for Superman is steady. And then there’s the range of action seen in the trailer, which brings the character to life in a way that few expected.
Now there are a couple new bits of marketing that don’t quite push our perception of the film in the way that trailer did. As the header image above suggests, a new poster focuses very much on Superman and his power in flight. The TV spot, meanwhile, looks to his birth family, and gives the voiceover reigns to Russell Crowe as Jor-El to explain his son’s potential destiny on Earth. Read More »

By definition, the apocalypse can only really happen once. But in the movies, it seems to crop up every few weeks or so.
Today we have three TV spots that face the end of the world in very different ways. In M. Night Shyamalan‘s After Earth, Will Smith and Jaden Smith struggle for survival on the now-uninhabitable planet. The characters of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, meanwhile, are trying to “cancel the apocalypse” with the aid of some giant-ass robots. And the famous folk in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s This Is the End may just go out laughing. Check ‘em all out after the jump.

The first two character posters for The Lone Ranger highlighted two figures we already know pretty well — the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) and Tonto (Johnny Depp) — but now the marketing team has moved on to some other folks we’re not quite so familiar with.
Helena Bonham Carter‘s Red, Ruth Wilson‘s Rebecca Reid, and William Fichtner‘s Butch Cavendish each get a turn in the spotlight, along with a pithy description explaining more about their characters. And it’s a good thing, too, since they don’t get much to do in the latest TV spot. Hit the jump for the new posters and video.
