Super Bowl 2020 Movie Trailers: Here’s What To Expect

Hut, hut…action! Here we are, but a scant few days away from the United States’ most watched television event of the year: the Super Bowl. While San Francisco and Kansas City fans are especially excited, everyone else can agree that the ads are also MVPs on Super Bowl Sunday. You know there’s going to be a weird Doritos commercial, possibly a strange, kinda sexist GoDaddy ad, and a bunch of exciting 30-second teasers for movies. And now, we have a pretty good idea of which trailers are going to show up, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter.

For $5.2 million a pop, Universal, Paramount and Disney seem to be the only three studios stepping up to the plate with a sack of money this year. Per tradition, we’re going to be seeing a second glimpse at Fast & Furious 9, following the full-length trailer set to debut this Friday during a Ludacris concert,

James Bond 25 Soundtrack Unites Smiths Guitarist Johnny Marr with Hans Zimmer
The soundtrack for No Time to Die has become increasingly interesting as it's been revealed that Johnny Marr, best known as the guitarist for The Smiths, is set to compose new music for the movie. It was recently confirmed that James Bond 25 recruited Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer to handle the score for Daniel Craig's final outing as the iconic MI6 agent. Marr will be teaming up with Zimmer to help bring the music to life.

It's not quite clear at this time how significant Johnny Marr's role will be in the process. Marr has teamed with Hans Zimmer previously in the past, contributing guitar to the Inception score, as well as working alongside him on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The 56-year-old musician also worked on the arrangement for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Marr had this to say about it in a statement.

"Part of the legacy of the Bond films is iconic music,

Amazon Awards Season Contender ‘Les Miserables’ Debuts, Inspirational Bollywood Pic ‘Chhapaak’ Opens – Specialty B.O. Preview
Amazon is set to open Les Misérables in limited release this week, but if you’re expecting a musical based on the Victor Hugo novel, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Directed by Ladj Ly, the film only shares a name with the popular Broadway musical. The drama tackles the issue of police brutality in France, showing that this is a super relevant issue not only in the United State but all over the world.

Based on Ly’s 2017 short film, Les Misérables is inspired by the riots that occurred in the suburbs of Paris in 2005. The story hits close to home for Ly as these riots had a long-lasting effect on his neighborhood, Montfermeil. The film follows Stephane (Damien Bonnard) who joins an anti-crime squad in Montfermeil after relocating. As he works with Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga), Stephane struggles with defusing the tense relationships between the resident gangs.

Box Office Predictions for 2020: From Surefire Hits to Potential Busts

Box Office Predictions for 2020: From Surefire Hits to Potential Busts
The box office has something to prove this year.

Moviegoers flocked en masse in 2019 to watch key Avengers hang up their suits and shields, the Clown Prince of Crime descend into madness and Simba take the throne (again). And yet, the domestic box office slipped 4% to $11.4 billion, down from 2018’s record high of $11.9 billion. But despite the downturn in ticket sales, studios and theater owners alike remain steadfast that moviegoing is far from a thing of the past.

Industry experts are optimistic that James Bond, Wonder Woman and Vin Diesel will reignite audience’s fervor for the theatrical experience and entice moviegoers looking for some big-screen pyrotechnics. But amid superhero spinoffs and franchise sequels, there will be inevitable whiffs. Some would-be blockbusters land with a thud (just ask the makers of last year’s “Cats”).

With that said, Variety took a peek inside its crystal ball to predict this year

‘Birds of Prey’ New Trailer Shows Harley Quinn Bouncing Back From Breakup With Joker (Video)
Who needs the Joker? In this playful and colorful new trailer for “Birds of Prey,” Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn spends some time moping over her breakup with Jared Leto’s Joker from “Suicide Squad,” including spraying some cheese whiz into her mouth.

Jerry Bruckheimer Talks Gemini Man and His Legendary Career [Exclusive]
History will be unable to write the story of Hollywood without the name Jerry Bruckheimer. The man has been producing some of our biggest movies for the better part of four decades now, with Top Gun, Pirates of the Caribbean, Bad Boys and Black Hawk Down, just to name a few, all on his resume. Last year saw Bruckheimer produce the action flick Gemini Man, a project that had been kicking around for years. Finally, with the help of Will Smith and Ang Lee, it was realized. Bruckheimer was no small part of that.

Gemini Man centers Henry Brogan (Will Smith), an elite 51-year-old assassin who's ready to hang it up after dozens of jobs. His plans get turned upside down when he winds up in the crosshairs of a mysterious operative who can seemingly predict his every move. This turns out to be a younger, faster, cloned version of himself,

No Time to Die Picks up Hans Zimmer as Composer

David Crow Jan 8, 2020

Hans Zimmer will be rushing to finish the No Time to Die score after stepping in as a last minute replacement on the James Bond epic.

No Time to Die will be the end of an era for the Bond franchise. After 14 years, Daniel Craig is retiring from the James Bond 007 role, and is the first actor to do so on his own terms since Sean Connery bowed out for good in 1971. Nevertheless, it’ll also be a first in other regards… including for legendary composer Hans Zimmer. In surprising genre movie news, the Oscar winning composer has confirmed No Time to Die will be his first Bond movie.

The news comes out of Variety, which reports Zimmer has been tapped as a last minute replacement for composer Dan Romer, who left the project last month due to “creative differences.” The trade further speculates that Zimmer’s

‘No Time to Die’: Hans Zimmer Takes Over as Composer on Bond Movie (Exclusive)

‘No Time to Die’: Hans Zimmer Takes Over as Composer on Bond Movie (Exclusive)
Hans Zimmer is James Bond’s new composer, multiple sources tell Variety.

The composer of “Gladiator,” “Inception” and “The Da Vinci Code” is already believed to be working on “No Time to Die,” the 25th film in the 007 franchise starring Daniel Craig. He replaces Dan Romer, the American composer who had previously been announced as scoring the film.

“Creative differences” are said to have been the reason for Romer’s dismissal last month by Eon Productions, the Broccoli family enterprise that has made all of the Bond films dating back to “Dr. No,” the first 007 adventure in 1962.

A spokesperson for MGM, Bond’s studio, had no comment on the matter. A spokesperson for Eon did not immediately return Variety‘s request for comment.

Rumors have been swirling for weeks about the status of music for the film, now in post-production in London. Director Cary Fukunaga brought Romer into the project last summer,

11 Best Movie Trailers of 2019

11 Best Movie Trailers of 2019
2019 movies were big in virtually every sense of the word. There were lots of big blockbusters at the box office (if your movie was released by Disney anyway), lots of big sequels and, as a nice surprise, some big original movies as well. It was also a big year for great movie trailers and we're here to highlight some of the best of the best in that particular arena.

Movie trailers are amongst my favorite things in the world of cinema. They often represent our first real look at something that only existed largely in theory up to that point. Sometimes trailers are a mere glimpse at excellence to come. Sometimes some wizardry takes place in the editing room that manages to craft an excellent two-ish minute look at something that is maybe not-so-great in the end.

This list runs the table. From talking cats to cinematic icons. From teasers

10. “Top Gun: Maverick

(posted July 18)

Tom Cruise introduced the clip at San Diego Comic-Con, and we quickly learn that Peter “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) is still a captain, despite the fact that, as his superior played by Ed Harris puts it, he “should be at least a two-star admiral by now.” There’s flying and partying and drones. Oh my.

9. “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”

(posted April 12)

“Star Wars” fans had heard pretty much nothing about the plot of Episode IX, and this trailer released at a Star Wars Celebration convention in Chicago offered few clues, including what the actually title meant.

Top Gun: Maverick Co-Writer Promises That The Movie Honors The Original

Tom Cruise has always been very selective when it comes to starring in sequels to his movies, with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back the only follow-up that the actor has ever made outside of the Mission: Impossible franchise. So, for Cruise to agree to reprise his star-making role as Pete Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick, a full 34 years after the original no less, there must be something pretty special about the project.

Of course, it helps that Cruise is working again with his frequent collaborator Christopher McQuarrie, with the duo becoming virtually inseparable ever since they first teamed up on Bryan Singer’s Valkyrie over a decade ago. The man behind the most recent installments in the Mission: Impossible series is co-writing the script for Maverick, which is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who Cruise also has previous experience with after making 2013 sci-fi Oblivion together.

Tom Cruise is at his best when doing his own stunts — including flying his own jet in the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick.

The 57-year-old actor revealed what it took to fly a real jet for the sequel to his classic 1986 film Top Gun in a special behind-the-scenes video.

“You just can’t create this kind of experience unless you shoot it live. In order for us to accomplish this, we have the greatest fighter pilots in the world working with us,” Cruise said.

The experience “is aggressive,” he continued. “You can’t act that, the distortion in the face. They’re pulling 7 and a half,
