david fincher super bowl commercial

David Fincher got his start directing commercials, and now he’s returned to the medium for Anheuser-Busch’s first-ever Super Bowl commercial. As you might expect from Fincher, the commercial looks great. It’s also surprisingly…sweet? I mean, look, I know this is a damn beer commercial, so let’s all try not to get weepy over here. But for Fincher, this is extremely sentimental. The commercial also features music from Atticus Ross, who has co-scored several of Fincher’s movies along with Trent Reznor. Watch the David Fincher Super Bowl commercial below.

big lebowski super bowl commercial

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.

2018 super bowl movie trailers

Everyone knows what they watch the Super Bowl to see — and it’s certainly not the football. It’s the commercials! Whether dancing puppy monkey babies are more your speed, or the latest trailer for Stranger Things, the Super Bowl has become one of the most anticipated pop culture events of the year for non-sports fans. Maybe that’s because the cost of a 30-second commercial aired during the primetime sport event could exceed $5 million — about the same as the budget for many independent films. So it’s exciting to just see what the overwhelmingly wealthy studios and advertising companies will shell out for a chance to be seen by 100 million eyes. Corporate culture at its finest.

Here are some of the 2018 Super Bowl movie trailers we’re expecting to see later this week.

Key and Peele Super Bowl Commentary

One of the biggest television events of the year is coming up this weekend with the live broadcast of Super Bowl 50. The NFL has dropped the Roman numerals from the game, because people are apparently too ignorant to know that “L” means 50 — it isn’t just a typo in the graphics. But that’s beside the point, because no matter what we call the game, it’s going to be sweetened by the comedic stylings of Key and Peele.

Squarespace has announced that they will have Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele providing live commentary for the big game as their characters Lee and Morris (seen above), but it might be a little tricky because of the rules they have to follow due to the NFL’s strict copyrights regarding the Super Bowl. Find out more about the Key and Peele Super Bowl commentary below. Read More »

Captain America The Winter Soldier

It seems fitting that the latest trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier would debut during that most American of holidays, Super Bowl Sunday. Marvel Studios had teased a new spot earlier this week, but they over-delivered, wonderfully, by offering up action-packed thirty-second TV ad and a brand-new full-length trailer. Watch them both after the jump.
