Independence Day Bill Pullman Coronavirus PSA

You might think that after the disastrous misfire known as Independence Day: Resurgence, the pop culture cachet of the entire IP might be less valuable these days than it used to be. Well, dear reader, think again because you would be absolutely wrong. For Americans, the Fourth of July is fast approaching and no matter where on the globe you are, you probably know exactly what that means: dangerous and cruelly dog-frightening fireworks, shameless capitalism, and an entire heaping dose of Independence Day memes.

Budweiser has apparently picked up on the latter two of those points, at least, as they’ve released a new holiday-themed commercial starring none other than Bill Pullman. Check it out below. Or don’t. We’re not the boss of you.

Last Night in Soho Teaser

Edgar Wright has delivered incredible blends of comedy, action, horror and sci-fi  with movies like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End. But the filmmaker is about to give us something extremely different with his latest effort.

Last Night in Soho is a straight-up psychological horror-thriller starring Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) and Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit).

the suicide squad tv spots

Who is going to die in The Suicide Squad? How will Starro come into play? Most importantly, does Peter Capaldi’s The Thinker speak in a Scottish accent? (Yes, he does.) The first official The Suicide Squad trailer provided a perfect tease, giving us a glimpse of the action and absurd tone of the James Gunn-directed movie without revealing much of the plot. But Gunn has decided to spoil fans and give us not one, but two new TV spots featuring more action and, best of all, Peter Capaldi talking in that beautiful Scottish brogue.

godzilla vs kong tv spot new

“We need Kong!” a character says in the latest Godzilla vs. Kong TV Spot. “The world needs him!” The implications could not be clearer: when it comes to Godzilla vs. Kong, Kong is being positioned as the “good guy.” While Godzilla and Godzilla: King of the Monsters presented Godzilla as a monster who will (occasionally) help humans out, Godzilla vs. Kong features a pissed-off Godzilla apparently turning on humanity, and honestly, I can’t say I blame him. Have you met humanity? We’re pretty damn awful. With Godzilla out there, hurting people, it’s up to Kong to save the day.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier TV Spot

Now that WandaVision has wrapped up, it’s time to look forward to the next small screen installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. In the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) has inherited Captain America’s shield, but that doesn’t mean the United States wants him to take up the mantle of the government-sanctioned superhero. But at least Sam has the support of Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), aka The Winter Soldier. Well, maybe not the full support, but they’re at least co-workers. Read More »
