Watch Every Movie Trailer from Super Bowl 52

Watch Every Movie Trailer from Super Bowl 52

Football fans around the world are tuning in to Super Bowl 52 tonight, as the AFC Champion New England Patriots take on the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles. Millions more will be tuning in for a different reason, though to check out all of the commercials, including new trailers for highly-anticipated movies. In case you’re not a football fan, we have compiled all of the movie trailers right here in one convenient place. Unfortunately for fans of the Merc With the Mouth, it was confirmed earlier today that there is no new trailer for the highly-anticipated Deadpool 2.

There were reports last week that studios such as Warner Bros., Sony and 20th Century Fox will be sitting out the big game, which isn’t surprising for Warner Bros. since they have traditionally sat out the big game. There will still be plenty of movie trailers debuting during the big game, with Universal Pictures dropping new footage from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the new Dwayne Johnson action-thriller Skyscraper. Brief ads that debuted during the Super Bowl pre-game show confirmed that the Skyscraper trailer will actually debut during tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which will air live from Minneapolis later tonight following the post-game show and a special episode of the hit drama series This Is Us.

One of the most highly-anticipated ads isn’t actually a full trailer, but instead a 45-second teaser for Solo, with the full trailer debuting during Monday morning’s episode of ABC’s Good Morning America. This trailer release strategy is not surprising, since Disney often uses shows that they own to promote Star Wars and Marvel movies, with the studio using shows like the late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live and Monday Night Football to debut the trailers for their biggest movies.

Other big game commercials include Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout and a former Paramount project Cloverfield 3, which was formerly known as God Particle, which has believed to be picked up by Netflix with this new TV spot expected to possibly confirm a new release date. Marvel’s Black Panther will also have a unique presence, with the extended TV spot already debuting early and Chadwick Boseman’s T’challa also appearing in ads for Lexus, the auto maker which is prominently featured in the movie.

Movie studios dropped big bucks to promote these movies this year, with the price for a 30-second spot expected to be over the record $5 million that advertisers paid during last year’s big game. Be sure to keep refreshing this story as we’ll be including more ads as they’re released. Take a look at all of the Super Bowl movie commercials below, courtesy of various YouTube channels.

Red Sparrow

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence reunites with director Francis Lawrence, who directed the actress in the last three Hunger Games movies, for the thriller Red Sparrow. Some fans have been criticizing the film for being too similar to the Black Widow character played by Scarlett Johansson, but the movie is based on a hit book written by a former CIA operative, with the story following a young woman who gets recruited to be a seductive assassin known as a “sparrow.” It’s possible that this thriller could be one of the first box office hits of the spring movie season.

A Quiet Place

This thriller marks the latest directorial effort from John Kraskinski, who also stars alongside his real-life wife, Emily Blunt. The minimalist thriller follows a young family who lives in the woods but must remain silent, or else a terrifying threat from the outside will attack them. Paramount has set an April 6 release date for the thriller.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Universal Pictures unveiled a new look at what could be one of the biggest movies of the year, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a followed up to the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World. The original movie broke The Avengers opening weekend box office record when it debuted in the summer of 2015, although that record would be broken later that year by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Director J.A. Bayona takes over the helm from Colin Trevorrow, which could be one of the biggest blockbusters of the summer movie season.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

This footage is among the most anticipated of all the Super Bowl trailers, although this 45-second spot is only a preview for the full trailer, which is slated to debut during ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday. Many expected the trailer to reveal a new release date, but it’s clear that Disney and LucasFilm are sticking with the May 25 release date. Be sure to check back tomorrow morning for the full trailer.

Skyscraper

This big game spot is also just a preview for the full trailer, with star Dwayne Johnson appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight, live from Minneapolis, to unveil the full trailer. This teaser showcases perhaps one of the biggest shots in the movie, showcasing The Rock making a death-defying leap from the top of a crane, into the burning Skyscraper, to save his family inside.

Unsane Trailer: Steven Soderbergh’s First Horror Movie Is Here

Unsane Trailer: Steven Soderbergh’s First Horror Movie Is Here

Bleecker Street has released the first trailer, poster and photos for Unsane, the new psychological thriller that director Steven Soderbergh shot entirely in secret, using an iPhone. Claire Foy stars as a young woman named Sawyer Valentini, who is trying to deal with a dangerous stalker. After relocating to a new city, she keeps thinking that her stalker has followed her from Boston, and after seeking out support groups for victims of stalking, she finds a facility that she thinks will be able to help her, although she has essentially signed herself over to this insane asylum.

This trailer comes just a week after the first look photo was released, featuring Claire Foy’s lead character trying to call the authorities, to let them know she’s being held against her will. The nurse informs her that the police get a slew of calls just like that from this facility every week, as she refuses to believe that she has lost her mind. Even within the sanctity of this insane asylum, this disturbed young woman keeps seeing her stalker (Joshua Leonard) throughout this facility. The trailer also offers a first look at Sawyer’s mother, played by Amy Irving, who tries her best to get her daughter out of this facility.

As one would imagine, this insane asylum is filled with a number of colorful characters, some of whom we get to see in this trailer. While we don’t learn much about these characters from this trailer, we get brief glimpses of some of Sawyer’s fellow patients played by Juno Temple, whose almost unrecognizable with her unique braids, Jay Pharoah and Aimee Mullins. The supporting cast also includes Erin Wilhelmi, Colin Woodell, Sarah Stiles and Polly McKee. The film is slated to have its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival next month, before arriving in theaters on March 23, where it faces Open Road Films’ Midnight Sun, Universal’s Pacific Rim Uprising and Paramount’s Sherlock Gnomes.

This marks the second film from Steven Soderbergh after the director came out of retirement to make Logan Lucky, his first feature film since 2013’s Side Effects. The filmmaker directs from a script by the writing team of Jonathan Bernstein and James Greer, whose diverse writing credits include Max Keeble’s Big Move, Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector and The Spy Next Door. Along with directing, Steven Soderbergh also serves as the director of photography, shooting the film himself on an iPhone, with the movie being shot entirely in secret. Since “retiring,” the filmmaker has also directed all 20 episodes of The Knick and the entire six-episode season of HBO’s Mosaic, which debuted earlier this month.

Claire Foy had her breakthrough role in 2008 as Amy Dorrit on the hit mini-series Little Dorrit, and she made her feature film debut in 2011’s Season of the Witch, starring Nicolas Cage, and she has quickly risen through the acting ranks since then. She went on to star in Vampire Academy, Rosewater and TV shows like Crossbones and Wolf Hall, before landing the title role in Netflix’s The Queen. She most recently signed on to star as Lisbeth Salander in Sony’s The Girl In the Spider’s Web. Take a look at the first trailer, poster and photos for Unsane, courtesy of Bleecker Street YouTube.

Deep Blue Sea 2 Trailer Is Here Bringing Shark Horror Back

Deep Blue Sea 2 Trailer Is Here Bringing Shark Horror Back

The first trailer for Deep Blue Sea 2 has finally arrived. The Deep Blue Sea is the true definition of what it means to be a cult classic in the best of ways and there have been talks of a sequel for years. Unfortunately, nothing ever really materialized. Until now that is. Warner Bros. has stepped up and produced the movie, which is heading straight to DVD and Blu-ray and not getting any sort of theatrical release. At least as far as we know. Now, we have the first Deep Blue Sea 2 trailer to deliver the spectacular B-movie shark action you’ve been wanting for nearly two decades.

Deep Blue Sea 2, centers on shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun, who’s invited to consult on a top-secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant, played by Michael Beach. She is shocked, as we see in the trailer, to learn that the company is using the unpredictable and highly aggressive bull sharks as its test subjects. As you’ll recall, the original movie centered on mako sharks. This turns out to be a bad idea and a whole lot of violence ensues. It was also confirmed in December that this will be an R-rated sequel.

Save for the fact that this movie is using bull sharks and not mako sharks, it actually looks, based on the footage, much more like a remake than an actual sequel. There seems to be many similar story beats and the plot, which sees the sharks attack the facility, forcing the humans to have to escape, is almost identical to the original Deep Blue Sea. However, Matt Bierman, creative executive for Warner Bros, did say that Deep Blue Sea 2 is a “true sequel” in an interview from last year.

“We are a true sequel. We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and story line of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the storytelling and the narrative in a way that first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build but once the rubber band snaps things go boom really quickly!”

This is far from the first we’ve heard of a sequel to Deep Blue Sea. It was revealed last year that Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus director Jack Perez was hired by Warner Bros. to write a script for a sequel some time ago. His sequel was quite elaborate and would have seen weaponized sharks. It also sounded quite expensive, which is why the studio probably passed. Instead, it looks like we may be getting a low-budget remake disguised as a sequel, which started production in July 2017. And just to think, Deep Blue Sea 2 almost didn’t happen.

Deep Blue Sea was originally released in 1999 and, though not a critical success, it made $164 million at the box office. Though, the $60 million budget prevented it from being a big moneymaker for the studio. Currently, Deep Blue Sea 2 does not have an exact release date. Be sure to check out the Deep Blue Sea 2 trailer, courtesy of the IGN YouTube channel, for yourself below.

Are We Not Cats Trailer Wants to Make You Sick

Are We Not Cats Trailer Wants to Make You Sick

Cleopatra Entertainment has released the first trailer, poster and photo for Are We Not Cats, the film festival favorite that was written and directed by Xander Robin, which stars Michael Patrick Nicholson, Chelsea Lopez, Michael Godere, Charles Gould and Adeline Thery. The film has been honored with 3 festival awards this year, including the Jury Award at Arizona Underground Film Festival, Best Feature Film at Imagine Film Festival in Amsterdam, and Best Narrative at Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham. But despite all that, be warned, there is some subject matter here that may turn your stomach.

Are We Not Cats tells the story of a young man attempting to restart his life after losing his job, girlfriend, and apartment in a single day. His plans are diverted when he meets a woman who shares his strangest habit, the impulse to pull out and eat their own hair. Xander Robin’s genre defying feature directorial debut flings the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, lovingly balanced by two vulnerable actors, a pulsating soundtrack and gritty, colorful cinematography.

Cleopatra picked up the distribution rights to Are We Not Cats last week, which premieres in select theaters on February 23rd. Are We Not Cats will be also be released on VOD platforms February 27th, followed by a DVD release date of March 13th. The deal was brokered by Cleopatra Founder and CEO Brian Perera, Tim Yasui, VP/GM of Cleopatra Entertainment, and by Strath, Marcy and Daisy Hamilton from TriCoast Worldwide on behalf of the filmmakers. The movie will be going up against Paramount’s Annihilation, Warner Bros.’ Game Night and Orion Pictures’ Every Day on February 23.

While this film may mark Xavier Robin’s feature directing debut, he’s seemingly worked in every facet of the movie industry on a variety of short films and features. This film is based on his own 2013 short film of the same name, which he wrote, directed, edited and produced. He has served as an editor on a number of short films, and the digital series Making a Scene With James Franco, while working as a camera operator, best boy, gaffer, key grip, assistant camera, cinematographer, assistant editor, sound editor, script supervisor and assistant director on a wide variety of short films throughout the years.

While this low-budget indie may not boast any stars or household names, this critically-acclaimed film could very well find an audience through its limited theatrical release and nationwide VOD rollout. It remains to be seen if any more footage will be released between now and the February 23 release date. Until then, take a look at the trailer below, couresy of Cleopatra Films YouTube, along with the new poster and photo.
