X-Men: Dark Pheonix, The First Trailer…


“I’ve seen evil, and I’m looking at it now.”  It’s been a long time coming, but the official trailer for Dark Phoenix, the next (and potentially final chapter in Fox’s long-running X-Men saga), is finally here.  Just like his predecessor in the pre-DOFP timeline, it appears that Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) has made the same grave mistake while handling a young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as he seemingly opted to once again suppress her dormant Phoenix abilities instead of helping teach her how to control the über-powerful force. Also, while the trailer may be light on actual Dark Phoenix action, save for a quick shot near the end, there’s still plenty of intense footage of all of your favorite returning X-Men as they band together to face arguably their most dangerous – and most personal – threat yet.

If Marvel Comic Heroes Were Rappers (Vol. 1).

Marvel Comics, has been knocking pretty much anything they do out of the park over recent years, be it movies, comic re-telling, and now marketing.  It would be a bit difficult to conceive of Marvel heroes crossing into the rap game, but Axel Alonso, editor in chief of Marvel, and his team of artists conceived of variant covers in order to generate buzz for over fifty No.1 issues that Marvel started releasing last month.  These cover take popular and iconic hip hop covers, and give them a Marvel twist.  Check the method, and NOTE: The collection is so vast, we had to split this up into two posts.

TMNT: Out Of The Shadows vs. X-Men: Apocalypse Trailers.


tmntoots029 tmntoots006 tmntoots001

The Turtles have been popping back up in popularity since the 2000’s, and aside from new video games, and comic crossovers, their movies are extremely well known.  (Well known and well liked are two different things), but weather you knew it or not, the Leo, Mikey, Don, and Raph were destined for a comeback. The stakes seem quite a bit higher, as New York appears to be invaded by someone (#BringDatKrang) and there’s also the arrival of Casey Jones.  It may be quite early to tell, but this will probably be a much better film than the original.

X-Men Apocalypse (oddly enough) was announced before its predecessor (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) was even released.  That being the case, the hype surrounding this film has been palpable, and now we know it’s for good reason.  The (young) X-Men squaring off with the most feared advisory in their universe seems like a good idea on paper, but seeing some of it come to life is downright exciting.  Check the method below.

The Next Chapter Of The ‘X-Men’ Franchise Is Well On Its Way.

Recently, Deadline served up the new,official synopsis/spoilers for the upcoming “X-Men:Apocolypse,” and it sounds like things will get quite interesting from the jump, doing a 10 year timeline jump from Days Of Future Past. A new, very powerful enemy arrives, and more.

The official synopsis, reads like this: “Apocalypse takes place a decade after Days of Future Past and is a seamless next step in the story. The altering of time has unleashed a new and uniquely powerful enemy. Charles (James McAvoy), Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Hank/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) are joined by young Cyclops, Storm, Jean and others as the X-Men must fight their most formidable foe yet – an ancient unrelenting force determined to cause an apocalypse unlike any in human history.”

Additionally, they confirmed that director, Bryan Singer, will return to direct the flick, despite his recent legal woes. Simon Kinberg is back to write the movie, based on a storyfrom Singer, Kinberg, Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris. It’s set to hit theaters on May 27th, 2016. Stay tuned.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past – Final Trailer.


x_men__days_of_future_past___2014____retro_poster_by_camw1n-d7ahfne

As the release date for X-Men: Days Of Future Past draws nearer, a brand new trailer has just surfaced.  This is not to be confused with the second theatrical trailer was released, opening with a post-apocolyptic future, and rouge bands of mutants running for survival.  This new trailer seems to showcase the other side of that coin, the past.  Take a look below to see the seeds of what happens when Wolverine speaks to the young Professor X, and who helps break Magneto out of the slammer.

The Movie Trailer Line Up For Superbowl XLVIII.


SB-XLVII-Logo-Feat1.jpg.pagespeed.ce.3AJfpHOcCp

Football fans are no doubt excited for the 2014 Super Bowl, but even non-sports fans can find something to enjoy. No, we’re not talking about Bruno Mars, we’re talking about the Super Bowl movie trailers that will be airing during the commercial breaks. With the 2014 Super Bowl set to air on FOX at 6pm on February 2, we thought now would be the perfect time to run through what we know is going to debut during the big game and what surprises could still be in store.

‘Transformers 4‘

Michael Bay confirmed last month that the first ‘Transformers 4′ trailer would run during the 2014 Super Bowl with another theatrical trailer arriving shortly thereafter. What can we expect to see in the big ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ reveal? Hopefully our first look at the rumored Dinobots. Bay’s ‘Transformers’ films haven’t always been the most satisfying movie experiences, but they do give good trailer. Expect the :30 ‘Transformers 4′ trailer to run during the first quarter.

‘Amazing Spider-Man 2‘

Also confirmed in December was that Sony had purchased a 2014 Super Bowl slot for a new ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ trailer. Unlike ‘Transformers 4,’ we’ve already seen a handful of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ footage, so we don’t anticipate a major reveal, more like a solid condensing of the existing trailer. It’s possible they’ll use this spot to give more exposure to Rhino and/or Green Goblin, but a safer bet is more concentration on the Spider-Man/Electro battle that has been at the center of the marketing campaign so far.

robocop_2014_movie-wide

‘RoboCop‘

With Sony’s purchased time, they’d be wise to give one last push to the ‘RoboCop’ remake, which opens 10 days after the 2014 Super Bowl. The film has been tracking on the low end and a big Super Bowl trailer could give it a significant enough boost to its opening weekend numbers. It doesn’t hurt that, to date, Sony has been aggressively promoting the film during the NFL playoffs.

‘Need for Speed‘

While a ‘Need for Speed’ Super Bowl trailer has yet to be confirmed, there are a few signs pointing in that direction. For one, we know Disney has purchased ad time during the 2014 Super Bowl (‘Need for Speed’ is a DreamWorks film, but is being released by Walt Disney Pictures). Second, ‘Need for Speed’ opens just over a month after the Super Bowl airs and the added promotion could give it the most real impact (in terms of box-office and awareness). Finally, it just seems to fit. Universal had previously used the Super Bowl to advertise it’s flagship racing franchise, but with ‘Fast and Furious 7′ pushed to 2015, the landscape is wide open for ‘Need for Speed’ to hit that demographic.

DRAFT-DAY-Affiche-Kevin-Costner

‘Draft Day’

Summit Entertainment hasn’t confirmed anything, but we’d guess the NFL-approved ‘Draft Day’ (which follows the fictional events leading up to and during the NFL Draft for Cleveland Browns GM, Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner)) is as much of a slam dunk as anything. The NFL rarely grants Hollywood the license to use its teams, logos and properties in film (‘Jerry Maguire’ is the last one we can think of), so we think it would be foolish if Summit didn’t try to capitalize on the Super Bowl to cross-promote to a football-loving audience.

captain_america_the_winter_soldier_artwork-1920x1200

‘Captain America 2‘

The ‘Captain America 2′ trailer (and sneak peek with ‘Thor: The Dark World’) was very well-received and we wouldn’t be surprised if Disney and Marvel opted to capitalize on that buzz in advance of the film’s April release. The Helicarrier crash is the big money shot spectacle that goes over well in Super Bowl trailers, so assuming Disney has some space, we think this is a pretty good bet as well.

‘The Expendables 3‘

Lionsgate has purchased time during the 2014 Super Bowl pre-game show and the only film on their roster that would make sense to pay all that money to advertise is their big summer movie, ‘The Expendables 3.’ The early teaser for the film was very much a tease, showing us no actual footage and a 2014 Super Bowl trailer could fix that, giving audiences their first look at Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Statham alongside newcomers like Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘

20th Century Fox has made a habit out of not commenting on their Super Bowl ad buys, so at this point, we don’t even know if they have purchased a spot or what they plan to do with it. BUT…the 2014 Super Bowl airs on FOX, so why not use their own time to advertise one of their own movies. If a 20th Century Fox movie were to be promoted, it could be the upcoming ‘X-Men’ film, which promises to be one of the biggest movies of the summer. Or…

S

Dawn+of+the+Planet+of+the+Apes+Old+Caesar+light+

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘

One could argue that ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ will be one of the biggest movies of the summer regardless of a 2014 Super Bowl trailer. If Fox wanted to promote one of its up-and-coming properties (one with considerably less star power), they could promote this summer’s ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’ Fox has enough faith in this film to already start developing the upcoming sequel, so why not show off a variation on the teaser trailer?

S

K18.1200x712

‘Neighbors’

With ‘Fast and Furious 7′ pushed to 2015, Universal doesn’t have any obvious blockbusters in 2014 and nothing that makes perfect sense for a Super Bowl trailer. But, if they were looking to sneak in, the Seth Rogen/Zac Efron comedy could fit. It doesn’t have to be an action-packed franchise movie to win over Super Bowl audiences – just look at the rest of the commercials. The ones that traditionally get rated the highest are the funniest ones.

‘Hercules’

MGM has been out of the game for so long, they’re barely considered one of the big movie studios anymore, but they do have the rare big movie coming up. Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, ‘Hercules’ could be MGM’s chance to make a big splash with their only major movie of the year.

What You WON’T See

godzilla2014_poster2edge-of-tomorrow-cci-poster-304882980jupiter_ascending_

Warner Bros. has opted to sit out this year so one Super Bowl trailer you won’t see (which is one we were really hoping we would see) is ‘Godzilla.’ This also puts ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and ‘Jupiter Ascending’ out as well.
