Gareth Edwards and Legendary are getting ready to serve up some serious monster attacks in Godzilla. Two new Godzilla TV spots preview even more of the devastation that takes place when Godzilla (and probably another monster or two) make landfall. The great thing about these spots is that they continue the run of marketing Godzilla like a horror movie rather than a big action movie or sci-fi tentpole. That seems like the perfect way to get across a new vision of giant monsters, and really holds my interest in the film, rather than dissipating it by showing too much. Read More »

The mutants are stopping by your TV on their way to the theater. Fox has released the first X-Men: Days of Future Past TV spot, with all the action, excitement, and grave-yet-vague voiceover narration you can cram into 30 seconds.
The Bryan Singer-directed sequel weaves together the First Class and original trilogy casts, as the older versions of the X-Men find themselves in danger. In an effort to save themselves, they send one of their own back in time to join forces with the younger X-Men and alter the future. Watch the video after the jump.

The first Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer was promising because it was all ominous tension as we started to see how humans feel cornered after a viral outbreak leaves evolved apes competing with humans for control of, well, everything. Now a Dawn of the Planet of the Apes TV spot shows off more of those evolved apes. While half of this spot is dedicated to the same shot we’ve already seen, of Caesar ready for war, there are a few new shots here of other simian characters. Read More »

HBC canceled Heroes in 2010, but if you read comic books, you know that superheroes are never dead. They always return somehow, usually as part of a event series which is marketed to make a few extra bucks. And this is no different.
NBC and Tim Kring have announced a new 13 episode miniseries called Heroes Reborn coming in 2015. Sound slike NBC is following Fox’s plan of limited event series. It might also help that the Marvel Cinematic Universe blew up since the show’s departure. Marvel fans have been mostly disappointed with Agents of SHIELD, and I’m sure NBC ‘s show hopes to be able to deliver superhero action that ABC has yet to.
They wouldn’t reveal many details, stating only that “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.” NBC will also be launching a digital series (read: webseries) prior to the premiere that will “introduce the characters and new storylines.” Read the full press release after the jump, along with a short teaser trailer.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There’s a conversation going on now about spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The identity of the second character in the film’s title is at the center of it — most comics fans know the history of the Winter Soldier, but general movie audiences don’t. Is his origin a spoiler, or simply something that Cap has to discover, while not being a big reveal for the audience?
There have also been (mostly debunked) concerns about spoilers for the film showing up via toys and a faked set of cue titles from the score.
Now a new TV spot has shown up, and one line in the middle of the thing has people calling “spoiler” once more. One simple argument says that anything chosen for official marketing can’t possibly be a spoiler — keep in mind how Marvel dealt with the Mandarin for Iron Man 3 — but there’s no question that the line in question is in this spot for a reason.
