We’ve all been pretty concerned about Marc Forster‘s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel World War Z. First the film was delayed for extensive reshoots and some accompanying rewrites, and then the first footage failed to assuage the concerns of the book’s biggest fans.
So how does it look now, in this second big footage drop, which comes in the form of a Super Bowl TV spot? The 30-second spot has enough time to recap some of what we’ve seen in the first trailer, including the setup of the zombie outbreak that Brad Pitt and his family must survive, but then it throws out a bit of new effects footage. Does this spot look better or more convincing than the first trailer? I’m not so sure; judge for yourself below.

Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching and that means new movie trailers. Word is there will be six this year: our first look at Fast and Furious 6, new ones for Star Trek Into Darkness and World War Z, and then three from Disney: Iron Man 3 directed by Shane Black, The Lone Ranger, directed by Gore Verbinski and Oz The Great And Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi.
If they follow the pattern as last year, the spots themselves will have longer versions online during the game so check back here Sunday for those. Until then, Disney has released very brief teases of their spots, which you can watch below. Read More »

The Academy isn’t known for its unpredictability (well, this year’s snubs for Best Director notwithstanding), but it came as a big surprise when it was announced last year that they’d selected Seth MacFarlane to host the awards ceremony. The Family Guy creator is well loved among the younger set but little known among the older-skewing Oscar audience. In any case his “edgy” humor seems like an odd fit for a typically tame event.
This morning, we got a first taste of how MacFarlane might fare as master of ceremonies when he and Emma Stone announced the nominees together. Now the Academy has put out five short TV spots that show off his comedic chops. Watch them after the jump.
