Its Superbowl time once again in the United States of America, the most watched televised event of the year. The film studios are well aware of this fact and are not afraid to spend $4 million dollars per advert to let you know what’s coming your way.
So in no particular order, here’s what we got to see this year.
This one actually premiered online early a few days ago. This new 30 second tease shows us Russell Crowe as the titular Noah who must build an ark in preparation for God’s floods.
Noah opens in the US 28th March / UK 4th April
Pompeii, the famous volcano erupts in a new film by Paul Anderson (Event Horizon, Resident Evil). A Slave turned gladiator must rescue his true love whilst Pompeii reigns down fire.
Pompeii opens in the US 21st February / UK 2nd May
Captain America: Winter Soldier
Here’s one of the big hitters from Marvel. A new 2.5 minute trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier. Marvel are apparently so pleased with this one, they’re sweet talking the directors to come back for number three!
Captain America: Winter Soldier opens in the US 4th April / UK 28th March
The Muppets Most Wanted
The Muppets are back with a sequel to their surprise come back hit from 2011 (Thank you Jason Segel!) This looks like a lot of fun and once again I love the twitter use in the current trailers.
The Muppets Most Wanted opens in the US on 21st March / UK 28th March
The Monuments Men
George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and John Goodman play an unlikely squad of World War 2 soldiers who must steal back art masterpieces from the Nazi’s and return them to their owners.
The Monuments Men opens in the US 7th February / UK 14th February.
A Million Ways To Die In The West
Seth MacFarlane’s new film receives a safe green band trailer that’s not as funny as the one we posted a few days ago. All the racier jokes have been removed and now the film seems less funny.
A Million Ways To Die In The West opens in the US 30th May / UK 6th June.
The Need For Speed
Probably most well-known for playing Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul plays a fresh out of prison street racer who was framed and now he wants his revenge. Can this Electronic Arts gaming franchise make the successful leap to the big screen and challenge The Fast And The Furious?
There is also an extended look which became available online today as well.
The Need For Speed opens in the US 14th March / UK 14th March.
The Amazing Spider-Man #2
Spider-Man is back and Sony gave us a little tease with this thirty-second spot. But if you followed the web address shown therein, you’ll find a four-minute sizzle reel!(Extended Trailer basically)
3 Days To Kill
Kevin Costner’s new spy thriller also received the thirty-second spot treatment. Costner plays a dying spy who will be given and experimental cure in exchange for partaking in one last assignment.
3 Days to Kill opens in the US 21st February / UK (TBC)
Transformers: Age Of Extinction
We finally get our first look at the fourth film in the Transformers franchise which was rumoured to this time feature the dinobots.Yes…yes it does.
Transformers: Age Of Extinction opens in the US 27th June / UK 11th July
I think that about wraps it up for this year. Personally Captain America is looking better with every trailer and I remain cautiously optimistic about Transformers 4. What did you think of this years crop? Lets us know in the comments section below or tweet us @theunheardnerd or me directly @UKFilmNerd.
