The Best Part of the Superbowl: The New Trailers
The consensus around the Super Bowl is that Missy Elliot won. And that was with pretty hefty competition; there was Kim K’s ass, Katy Perry starring as a Hot Dog on a Stick mascot, and what is being called the worst play decision in Super Bowl history.
But who cares about all of that when there were new trailers to watch! There is a lot of Blerd friendly entertainment coming our way (many we highlighted as #BlerdMovies You Should Be Watching in 2015), and if you missed the trailers because you were refreshing your Totinos pizza rolls, arguing about a referee’s call, or just not caring about the Super Bowl, I’ve compiled them here for easy viewing. Happy watching!
The return of Heroes to the small screen just might be groundbreaking. It might be a train wreck too, but this clip (however small) clings to what made the show great to begin with while showing promise for its return.
This upcoming Disney feature that is shrouded in secrecy is dripping in sci-fi cool. We still no next to nothing of what the movie is about, but I’m already invested from the effects alone.
Chris Pratt. Bryce Dallas Howard. Mutant dinosaurs. I’m in!
Kingsman: The Secret Service
Honestly, the whole thing looks like a thin attempt to merge James Bond spying with modern high-octane action flicks. Will it be groundbreaking? Probably not. Will it make hella money and spawn sequels? Sure thing.
I’m so intrigued by this reboot/rehash of the Terminator franchise. And it’s Arnold poking fun at himself. That never gets old.
Pitch Perfect 2
This is more or less the exact trailer that has already been making its rounds. But there’s just something about that Rebel Wilson. Can’t get enough.
After all of the delays this film has faced, I have zero confidence that it will be any good. But there is medieval stuff and magic, so there is built-in entertainment. Plus, it has Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. There just has to be some redeeming quality to it.
For the life of me, I cannot stand Shailene Woodley. But these films based off of Young Adult books (Twilight, Hunger Games, The Giver, Maze Runner) are big on budget, small on script, 100% mindless fun. It’s a trifecta that makes for must-see watching.
