The release of Sonic the Hedgehog is just two weeks away. The SEGA video game character took some extra time coming to the big screen to get a much-needed makeover that wouldn’t terrify audiences with his human teeth and wide-set eyes (the new version looks very close to his classic design). Was it worth the wait? You’ll have to watch the new Sonic the Hedgehog clip and Super Bowl spot to get a better idea. Read More »
The Super Bowl is coming up this Sunday, and since we evidently live in a world in which Super Bowl commercials no longer debut during the actual Super Bowl anymore (get off my lawn, etc.), we’ve started to see a few trickle out a few days early. Such is the case with this new one from Walmart, which features iconic science fiction characters like Flash Gordon, Frank the pug from Men in Black, and two versions of William “Bill” S. Preston, Esq. out buying supplies. Plus, it ends with a couple of familiar faces from a galaxy far, far away. Check it out below. Read More »
We’ve already seen The Shining used to shamelessly sell Mountain Dew Zero Sugar with Bryan Cranston, and Bill Murray is coming back for a Groundhog Day follow-up, all for this weekend’s Super Bowl. But as we previously reported, Rick and Morty is also getting in on the Big Game this year as part of a Pringles commercial, and it’s already available online in its entirety. Watch the Rick and Morty Pringles Super Bowl commercial below. Read More »
Talk about déja vu. Bill Murray is reprising his role as the cynical TV weatherman in a Groundhog Day Super Bowl commercial for Jeep, which has been spotted filming in the town of Woodstick, Illinois, where the 1993 comedy classic was first shot. It’s the kind of movie tie-in that Super Bowl advertisers, whose big-budget commercials have payed homage to many a classic movie, could only dream of because this is the year that the annual championship football game falls on the same day as Groundhog Day.

This weekend brings us Super Bowl LIV, and with it will be a bunch of star-studded new commercials pushing all the biggest brands in front of one of the largest television viewing audiences of the year. But in the internet age, it’s more important to go viral before the Big Game, and some of this year’s biggest commercials are already online. One of them will be of particular interest to fans of Mountain Dew, Bryan Cranston and Stanley Kubrick.
Mountain Dew has just launched their new Mountain Dew Zero Sugar (or MTN DEW Zero Sugar), joining the ever-growing roster of carbonated drinks swapping out sugar for artificial sweeteners. And to give the new soft drink a proper launch, they recruited Bryan Cranston to recreate scenes from The Shining. So instead of Jack Torrance being a murderous psychopath, he just wants his wife to try some of this Mountain Dew Zero Sugar like any sane person would. Read More »

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.

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 »

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.
