Trailer Trashin’: Super Bowl 50 Movie Spots

4 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Another Super Bowl has come and gone, dear readers. Congratulations to the Denver Broncos on their victory, and my sympathies to the Carolina Panthers. And just like every year, the Big Game brought us a fine crop of TV spots for upcoming movies. There were eleven Super Bowl 50 movie spots, and in this roundup edition of Trailer Trashin’, I’ll be giving you my quick takes of some of the big ones.

  Deadpool

Premise: In an effort to cure his cancer, former special forces operative Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) was subjected to an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, an unstable mind, and a dark, twisted sense of humor. Armed with new abilities and a new identity as “Deadpool,” Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

My take:  I am really freaking excited about Deadpool. Fox has done a great job marketing this film, »

Why Will Smith Isn't In Independence Day: Resurgence, According To Will Smith

9 February 2016 11:25 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While most of the gang is getting back together for the long-awaited sequel to Independence Day, one star who will not be making his return is Will Smith. Not only will his character of Captain Steven Hiller not be seen in the movie, Roland Emmerich has already gone and killed the character off screen, meaning that we won’t see him in any other sequels, either. Now Will Smith has opened up about the decision to not reprise his role. It turns out it wasn’t that he didn’t want to be in the movie, but rather that he just didn’t have the time. Will Smith sat down for an interview with BBC Radio One and was asked about the upcoming Independence Day: Resurgence. He told host A.Dot that his decision to not return had nothing to do with any lack of interest, »

The clothes sure do make the man. Feast your eyes upon a new photo of Liam Hemsworth looking battle-ready and very handsome in his flight suit from Independence Day: Resurgence. "I felt pretty good," Hemsworth, 26, tells People of the first time he put on the costume made from Italian fabric. "It had a sheen to it and almost an oiliness. They are really tight when you first put them on, but once they warm up they stretch out." As a fan of the original 1996 film, Hemsworth jumped at the chance to be involved in the sequel, especially when he learned »

Harker’s Hits: 6 best super bowl ads

8 February 2016 12:14 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

People watch the Super Bowl for different reasons. Some actually watch the game. And some watch just to be social. But everyone watches for the ads. And whether they were previews of things to come or commercial tie-ins, there were plenty of commercials to thrill and inspire us this year. I’ve posted my six faves below and want to know your own. Leave your picks in the comments!

One-way Ticket To Metropolis, Please

One of the more creative tie-ins featured two ads, one with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice shilling for Turkish Airlines. Hey, I’d book a seat to Gotham City if the Turks could get me there!

Welcome Back To The Jungle

Disney previewed the live-action remake of its animated classic The Jungle Book and it looks thrilling. Though it Is a »

Ranking the Super Bowl 50 Movie Trailers

8 February 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Most people thank (or blame) Ridley Scott's 1984 Macintosh ad for inventing the spectacle of the Super Bowl commercial, but the Independence Day spot that 20th Century Fox unleashed during the big game in 1996 was an equally significant milestone. Ever since 100 million Americans gawked at their televisions in awe as a massive alien spaceship blew up the White House, the football championship has become the ultimate launching pad for the next wave of spring and summer blockbusters. These days, it almost feels like there’s an entire Comic-Con worth of »

Destruction in Super Bowl TV Spot for 'Independence Day: Resurgence'

7 February 2016 9:21 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What goes up, must come... down." 20th Century Fox has released a very epic new TV spot for the Super Bowl for Roland Emmerich's Independence Day: Resurgence, the return of the Independence Day story. With only 30 seconds to spare, this spot focuses mostly on epic destruction of various cities and the arrival of whatever massive back-up destroyer the aliens have sent this time. The main cast features: Jeff Goldblum back as David Levinson, Jessie Usher as Dylan Hiller, Liam Hemsworth as Jake Morrison; plus there's a glimpse of Bill Pullman as President Whitmore. In terms of the "holy sh*t" factor and grabbing our attention, this spot is one of the winners. This looks crazy fun, I'm definitely hooked I'll admit. Here's the Super Bowl TV spot for Roland Emmerich's Independence Day: Resurgence, via YouTube: Independence Day 2 is being once again directed by Roland Emmerich. As for returning cast members – Jeff Goldblum, »

Independence Day: Resurgence's Super Bowl Spot Has the National Anthem and Jeff Goldblum; Could It Be More Patriotic?

7 February 2016 6:59 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ah, Independence Day, where we give thanks for our freedom and also for true American hero Jeff Goldblum. Do you not give thanks for Jeff Goldblum? Is this a regional thing? Anyway, the Super Bowl trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, the long-gestating sequel to Roland Emmerich's mammoth 1996 blockbuster about Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith fighting aliens, is here. Goldblum returns, sans Smith, alongside Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, and Vivica A. Fox. They're joined by Liam Hemsworth, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, and Sela Ward, who worked with Emmerich (still rebounding from Stonewall) on The Day After Tomorrow. Watch the latest spot above, and get a little more context (as if Independence Day needs context) below. Independence Day: Resurgence comes crashing into theaters like an alien mothership June 24, 2016. »

Thunderous Independence Day: Resurgence Trailer Casts A Shadow Over Super Bowl 50

7 February 2016 5:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We always knew they’d come back. Exactly two decades after Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith sent the extra-terrestrials packing, earning a celebratory cigar in the process, those aggrieved aliens are returning. That’s right, director Roland Emmerich is primed to lay siege to Earth’s prominent landmarks once again when Independence Day: Resurgence looms over theaters in June.

In anticipation of the sequel’s long-awaited arrival, which has more to do with production setbacks and less with the scientific realities of space-travelling across lightyears, 20th Century Fox has premiered the film’s latest TV spot during the Super Bowl, offering budding fans a much more comprehensive look at the story.

Granted, it’s one that Will Smith’s Colonel Steven Hiller won’t be a part of, with Fox bumping off his character in the intervening years to excuse the actor’s commitment to Warner’s Suicide Squad. Celebrated as an international hero, »
