Marvel Studios didn’t just tease the arrival of Avengers: Endgame during the Super Bowl. Let’s not forget that before the Avengers (or what’s left of them) assemble, we’re getting the big screen debut of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. Following the debut of the first clip from the cosmic superhero movie over the weekend, the Captain Marvel Super Bowl trailer goes higher, further and faster than any of the other superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Today might have brought the Super Bowl to millions around the world, but the real match-up that everyone is waiting for won’t arrive until April.
Avengers: Endgame picks up the pieces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that were turned to dust at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Audiences around the globe are waiting to see how Earth’s mightiest heroes (and some misfits from around the galaxy) will come together in order to undo what the mad titan known as Thanos has done to the universe. We’re not sure how it’s all going to play out, but the new Avengers Endgame Super Bowl trailer teases a bit more from the anticipated superhero sequel. Watch it! Read More »
Get Out director Jordan Peele is back behind the camera this year with a new nightmare called Us. The first trailer undoubtedly gave us chills, and it made the hip hop jam “I Got Five On It” by Luniz absolutely terrifying. Now a new trailer has arrived that will also be airing during the Super Bowl tonight. Watch the Jordan Peele’s Us Super Bowl trailer below. Read More »
Okay Google: What two things can get Joe Pesci out of retirement and back onto the screen? Only Martin Scorsese and Google Assistant, apparently. The Goodfellas star has all but disappeared from public view since he essentially retired in 2010. But while he’ll appear later this year in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Pesci maintains a relatively low profile — unless it pertains to Home Alone, of course.
Following up Macauley Culkin‘s viral Home Alone-themed Google Assistant ad, Pesci decided to go on a trip down memory lane for his own Google Assistant Home Alone-themed ad.

Finally, the Sex in the City and Big Lebowski crossover no one was asking for is here. Jeff Bridges slips back into his iconic role – which admittedly isn’t that hard, since it’s pretty much who he really is – for a new Stella Artois commercial for the Super Bowl in which he encounters Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Carrie Bradshaw. The question is: why? Watch the Big Lebowski Super Bowl commercial below.

Looks like the Dude is returning…in a commercial. Jeff Bridges just teased a Big Lebowski…something, with a brief teaser featuring the message “Stay tuned.” While you might automatically assume that means a sequel, the date at the end of the footage says 2/3/19. That’s way too soon for a secret movie to be coming out – we’d have heard something by now. But football fans will immediately recognize that February 3 is the date of this year’s Super Bowl. While we don’t have confirmation yet, it’s likely that Bridges is teasing a Big Lebowski Super Bowl commercial.

Just last month we got confirmation that Nintendo was teaming with Illumination Entertainment to create an animated Super Mario Bros. movie. The studio behind movies like Despicable Me, Minions and The Secret Life of Pets seemed like an odd choice to bring the Nintendo video game character to the big screen again after all these years, but Nintendo’s co-representative director Shigeru Miyamoto recently explained during an investors meeting why they went with the Universal based animation company.
Find out why the animated Mario movie is heading to Illumination Entertainment below. Read More »
