It used to be that the ‘commercial’ time during the Super Bowl broadcast was greatly anticipated due to the new ads. Everyone would be talking about them the next day at work. Now a new trend has become even more interesting and that is, showing brand new movie trailers for upcoming film releases. This year there seems to be a lot of buzz about a few of them. Let us take a look at what was shown last night.
‘The Lone Ranger’ with Johnny Depp. Can’t feel but get excited about this movie, the trailer looked nothing like the original, very modernized, which seems to be the new thing with revivals, like Sherlock Holmes. Johnny is a favorite of mine, and seems to be a lovely guy and is a brilliant actor. Excited for this one. Coming on July 3rd.
‘The Fast and The Furious 6′ this one has a blockbuster feel to it, not only because of the cast which includes, Vin Diesel, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Paul Walker and new comers Luke Evans, Gina Carano and Joe Taslim, but because of the incredible car chases. As all of you who read my articles know, I’m a huge Luke Evans fan, and was very happy to see him first thing on the trailer. I am massively excited to watch this movie and can-not-wait! Coming May 24th.
‘World War Z’ with Brad Pitt. Unfortunately he is one of those actors that is overexposed, in my humble opinion. He’s not a bad actor, don’t get me wrong. But am I the only one that is tired of seeing him and Clooney everywhere? The trailer does make me want to go see the movie though. Coming on June 21st.
‘Oz, The Great and Powerful’ James Franco stars as a magician who plays an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ sort of role and ends up in Oz via a tornado. Not sure how I feel about this one. Coming on March 8.
‘Iron Man 3′ with Robert Downey Jr. returning to reprise his role as Tony Stark. The trailer showed people been sucked out of an airliner and being scooped up by our hero. Looks amazing and it’s a bonus that Sir Ben Kingsley plays his biggest antagonist yet, Mandarin. Coming May 13th.
‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ from director J.J. Abrams, recently announced to helm the new ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’, comes the intergalactic adventure. The usual characters that we all know are back and faced with the villain, John Harrison played by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Very excited to see this for many reasons. Coming on May 17th.
‘Snitch’ the second trailer with Dwayne Johnson. Not as excited to see this one, as I am his other movie ‘Fast 6′. Johnson plays an informant who infiltrates the gang that set his son up and sent him to prison. It’s based on real events, so might be good to go and check out. Coming February 22.
So there you have it. Lots of new, exciting films to look forward to this year. Movie studios are paying millions to have their trailers featured during this broadcast. Hopefully it is worth it.
