Illumination Entertainment has a couple of new animated movies hitting theaters this year. The first is the animal adventure The Secret Life of Pets, arriving this summer. But just before Christmas, Illumination will get musical with Sing. In what is basically Zootopia meets American Idol, one koala (Matthew McConaughey) decides to put on a huge singing competition to save his theater, and some average animals with incredible pipes look at it as their opportunity for a better life. Of course, it’s all fueled by an endless array of popular songs from yesterday and today.

Seth MacFarlane‘s comedy is at its best when there are no boundaries whatsoever. Which is why the red band trailer is his bread and butter. You never quite know what a MacFarlane film is until you see the red band.
We’ve already seen one red band trailer for Ted 2 and now a new Ted 2 Red Band trailer is out. This one is incredibly economical, as it starts with a familiar sci-fi spoof on a popular trailer, and then packs as many F-bomb and drug jokes as possible into the next 70 seconds. The sequel stars Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Morgan Freeman and opens June 26. Watch the new Ted 2 red band trailer below. Read More »
The truest selling point of a Seth MacFarlane film is its red-band trailer. That’s where the writer/director’s humor is on full display and you’re about to get a lot of it in the latest Ted 2 trailer. It’s red-band, so the language is VERY not safe for work and it’s right in that MacFarlane wheel house: bodily fluids, drugs, race and lots of sex.
In Ted 2, Ted and John (Mark Wahlberg) continue to move on with their lives and Ted wants to start a family. Unfortunately, the law says he can’t because he’s not considered a person. So begins a legal battle for Ted’s civil rights lead by lawyer Samantha L. Jackson (Amanda Seyfried). In the Ted 2 red band trailer, there are a bevy of jokes, including some almost full sequences that certainly position the sequel as a likely Summer hit. But will it be as funny or original as the first? Watch and figure it out below. Read More »
Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane return for Ted 2, in which Wahlberg plays an adult whose childhood toy has come to life — and now the sentient teddy bear wants to have a child. That poses some obvious potential problems, and the Ted 2 Super Bowl spot is kind of a mini-heist scenario showing how the duo attempts to deal with the situation. Specifically, they try to get Tom Brady to donate a little genetic material to the process… except that he doesn’t know that’s about to happen. Read More »
