We won’t know until this Sunday which two teams will be playing in Super Bowl XLV on February 6 (Let’s go Jets!) but we do know several of the movies that will be competing during the commercial breaks. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Paramount has five commercial spots for some of its upcoming films: Super 8, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor and Rango, Disney will be promoting Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, DreamWorks has bought time for Cowboys & Aliens and Relativity will air a spot for Limitless starring Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.

Ads this year cost $3 million for a 30 second spot, slightly up compared to last year, so other studios have chosen to save money and buy time during pregame or Glee, which will air immediately following the game. Read which films will appear in those slots and also why we believe this isn’t the end of the Super Bowl shuffle. Read More »

Despite The Tourist performing well-below domestic expectations, no one would argue the drawing power of Johnny Depp. The famously reclusive actor generally stays out of the spotlight long enough to pick and choose whatever projects he wants to do and then he usually does them incredibly well. A few years back, Depp had a reputation for being so choosy with his roles that he probably never would have agreed to a big budget sequel, let alone two of them.

Fast-forward to 2011 and Johnny Depp has his fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides peaking up over the horizon (it opens May 20) and in a new interview he says that he’d even be game for a fifth installment. Just in case, Disney has already rehired Terry Rossio, who co-wrote the first four films, to write a script for a fifth. Read the exact quote and more after the break. Read More »
