Smurfs: The Lost Village preview

The last two Surfs movies aren’t the most memorable kid films out there, but their success – they did great business overseas – proved there’s still plenty of love out there for these characters. The little blue humanoids are again starring in a movie, but this time, it’s a fully animated feature from director Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2), not another blend of live-action and animation. Smurfette (Demi Lovato), Gargamel (Rainn Wilson), and Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin) are back Smurfs: The Lost Village and a new promo has arrived to tease their return.

beauty and the beast

Disney’s recent habit of treading on hallowed ground has resulted in a mixed bag of movies. Cinderella got the job done, telling a straightforward princess story with the appropriate amount of gloss, but Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland were both…let’s just be polite and say “not as creatively successful.” However, I have a good feeling about Beauty and the Beast, albeit a good feeling tinged with a little bit of anxiety because they’re remaking my favorite animated Disney movie. The 1991 original is just about perfect in every way.

A new TV spot debuted during the Academy Awards last night and the new Beauty and the Beast footage sure does look like…Beauty and the Beast.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Super Bowl spot

When David Bowie died in January of 2016, director James Gunn expressed his grief and also mentioned that there was once an idea tossed around to have the iconic musician make a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Unfortunately, at the time, Bowie’s health was already keeping him from doing things like that.

The first Guardians of the Galaxy featured the track “Moonage Daydream” from David Bowie, and following Bowie’s death, James Gunn said he was trying to get another song off the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. It appears we may know what that song is thanks to a new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 TV spot, which you can watch below. Read More »

Kong Skull Island Extended TV Spots

Kong: Skull Island arrives in one month, and we’ll get to see what Legendary Pictures has done with one of the most iconic movie monsters of all time. Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is behind the camera, making a jump from indie to blockbuster in the same way that Colin Trevorrow did from Safety Not Guaranteed to Jurassic World. Can he deliver an action adventure worthy of the name King Kong? Some new TV spots give us more of what’s waiting for us next month.

Watch a couple new Kong Skull Island extended TV spots, and see a new poster, after the jump. Read More »

Baywatch Super Bowl spot

Can Baywatch the movie do to Baywatch the TV show what 21 Jump Street the movie did to 21 Jump Street the TV show? We don’t know yet, but it looks like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will make it happen or die trying. They star as a couple of lifeguards tasked with restoring the Baywatch brand (how meta) and tracking down a sinister criminal plot threatening their beloved beach.

Also starring are Kelly Rohrbach as the new C.J. Parker (i.e., the new Pamela Anderson), plus Alexandra DaddarioIlfenesh HaderaJon Bass, and Priyanka Chopra. While this Baywatch clearly boasts a goofier tone and some splashier action, it retains the same obsession with ogling suntanned hardbodies. Check out the Baywatch Super Bowl spot below.

The Fate of the Furious Super Bowl spot / BTS group shot

There’s only one thing Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) cares about more in life than fast cars, and it’s family. He talks about family all the time, and goes to great lengths to show his loved ones just how much they mean to him. So what on earth could compel him to turn against them? And what’ll happen when he does? That’s the question at the heart of The Fate of the Furious, the latest entry in the ridiculously lucrative Fast & Furious series.

Whatever happens, though, what’s clear is that it’s going to involve a lot of ridiculous, over-the-top action, exotic vehicles, and glamorous locations. It’ll bring the rest of Dom’s family closer together, and might even force them to forge some unlikely alliances. Check out the Fate of the Furious Super Bowl spot below.  Read More »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Super Bowl Spot

We last saw Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) almost six years ago in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a fairly bloated, lifeless and forgettable sequel. At the time, though, audiences welcomed the return of Jack Sparrow. The sequel made over a billion dollars worldwide, making Depp’s last legit hit. Now, almost 14 years after first playing the character, the actor is back as the shifty pirate.

A Cure for wellness super bowl spot

Director Gore Verbinski‘s last four films are gigantic popcorn movies. Rango, the Pirates of the Carribean sequels, and The Lone Ranger are enormous in scope. With A Cure for Wellness, the director is scaling things back a bit, sticking with mostly one location: one messed up, horrific, and beautifully designed spa.
