Tony Stark is back folks. Here’s a look at the spot that aired during the Super Bowl followed by the extended (read: better) version posted to the Iron Man Facebook page today.
**_Update: here’s a better embed of the second one:_**
Almost undoubtedly this will be Disney’s biggest film of the year and it looks like they’ve thrown all the monies at it to make sure. This doesn’t show us much new except a slightly better look at the new suit in action. If the rumours are true it’ll be interesting to see whether the folks falling out of Air Force One are actually in harms way or not. No, I wont say more than that. As Google, he knows what I am talking about.
Also, Robert Downey’s “Extended Look” made me laugh out loud. But then again, that’s the type of humour I go in for.
Fast and Furious 6, yes it’s the 6th film in the franchise, gets a Super Bowl spot.
Well, it’s certainly a Fast and Furious trailer isn’t it? Lots of ridiculous car driving action, explosions, women wearing not a whole lot, this is all but guaranteed to make a boat load of cash. And you know what? If it’s anything like Fast Five then it’ll be deserving.
Seriously, Fast Five was all kinds of fun.
Plus, based on shots in this trailer it looks like they might be tying up loose ends from Fast and Furious and Fast Five, forming a loose trilogy. I’m not opposed to that.
Also, Han Seoul-Oh is still in this one. Since he died in Tokyo Drift (that’s the third one) that makes all the films since prequels to that one, which begs the question: what the hell year does Tokyo Drift take place in.
Also, yes, [“Han Seoul-Oh” is the characters actual name](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Fast_and_the_Furious_characters#Han_Seoul-Oh).
Super Bowl spot for my own personal most anticipated film of the year.
First off, let me just say this: HOLY SHIT BALLS IS IT MAY YET?
Second off, let me say this: Seriously guys, is it May yet?
And third, Yes I am looking forward to this movie. I’m a dyed in the wool trekkie (Simon’s more interested in Star Wars news) and this looks like it might take everything they learned on 2009’s Star Trek (but couldn’t fix due to the writers strike) and ramp it up considerably. It’s teasing lots of action, and I cannot wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch as the bad guy. Some people think he’s Khan, some people think it’s gonna be Sybok, but I honestly don’t think I want to know. It’s been a bit of a tricky thing keeping myself in the dark in terms of plot details so far but I am going to do my best to keep it up as long as I can.
And a few notes:
1. He’s “better at everything” eh? Lends more credence to the genetically engineered bad guy idea.
2. “Our World Will Fall” eh? So is he after Kirk, or Spock, or the federation, or ?
3. That appears to be the Enterprise crashing through an atmosphere. Holy moly there’s a lot of stuff going on here that’s playing up previous movies.
You may have noticed that this embed was in SD. [See the HD version at Apple.com/trailers](http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/paramount/startrekintodarkness/), it’s much prettier.
Seriously, is it may yet?
**Update:** I forgot to mention, if you have the Star Trek Into Darkness app on your phone or tablet you can unlock a slightly longer version of this spot by having the app listen to it. It’s not much longer (37 seconds vs. the 32 seconds here) but there are a few more shots. Grab it for [iPhone/iPad/iPod here](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/star-trek-app/id588255788) and for [android here](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paramount.startrekapp). And if you’re wondering if there’s any spoilery content, it does not appear as such.
The 90 second spot for The Lone Ranger that aired during the Superbowl is now online. Hurray!
I’m going to go with my first instinct on this and say that despite the fact that it looks like it might be fairly predictable (do you think Armie Hammer might have been betrayed and left for dead and found and nursed back to health by Tonto who had previously been betrayed and then together they ride out to exact justice on the bad guys together and in the process much action and badass hilarity ensues?) I think that it might still be a whole lotta fun.
This about Pirates of the Caribbean here. The first one, not the rest of them. It’s that level that I’m talking about. If they hit that same mark this movie could be one of the top earners of the year.
And hopefully, just maybe, Johnny Depp will get to say “[your argument is invalid](http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/your-argument-is-invalid)”.
Official Synopsis from the [YouTube video embedded above](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkUMrkFdc9U):
> From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ The Lone Ranger, a thrilling adventure infused with action and humour, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes.
> Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, a legend of justice — taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
See what I mean about “probably predictable but likely still fun”?
Apparently Sony is spending nearly 4$ million to air this during the Super Bowl. God knows how much they spent to make it. And it’s kind of terrible.
I get what they are going for here but I feel like it’s unnecessary. I don’t need to see the family he lost to understand Kratos or his motivations (and in this case I honestly don’t think we need to. God of War thus far hasn’t exactly been a masterwork of storytelling).
As with most prequel material I think it’s best left up to the imagination, but according to the world I am in the minority in that regard and here we are. What do you guys think?
Most of the Superbowl Ads will be going up, you know, during the Superbowl but for some reason the new 30 second spot for World War Z went up yesterday. So lets take a look.
You know when I first heard about this movie I was excited but the more I see the more I get the feeling it’s going to suck. I kind of dig that he running zombies act like a massive insect colony might, but at the same time they don’t look very good. Hopefully that’s just unfinished CG.
The trailer itself doesn’t really tell us anything more than we already know. In fact there’s only one new shot in here that I can see and it doesn’t add anything whatsoever. You’d think with a Superbowl ad, potentially seen by all of the people, they’d want to tease a little more and get us more interested. That they haven’t isn’t exactly reassuring.
The jury will be out on this one until I see it, but so far I’m not holding out much hope.
