New TV Spots for Total Recall, Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises, film clips for On The Road, a trailer for The Watch and casting for RoboCop.
Total Recall isn’t showing a whole ton just yet, but there are a few new images in this new TV Spot, and I thank them for that. Now I want to know why there’s a TV Spot for a movie that doesn’t come out until August. What frickin’ show is going to play this and have it be worth the advertising dollars?
Prometheus has TWO new TV Spots today, and they’re both decent, though like a lot of the promotional material I’m seeing it’s nothing new. I don’t see why they bother putting out new TV Spots if it’s just a slight edit of the last one.
Oh, right. Because I’ll post it and they’ll get publicity. Well played.
One thing that I did see for the first time in these TV Spots is the kraken, which has apparently been unleashed. Seriously, I see tentacles. WTF?
The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises also has TWO new TV spots, and they are FREAKING AWESOME. What is really amazing about these two spots is that they’re giving us a pretty different view of the film, which has thus far looked a little too dark. While the first two films were certainly quite serious, there were at least moments of humor and fun. This seems to be the case for The Dark Knight Rises, and I AM IN LOVE WITH IT.
On the Road
On the Road has a couple new film clips today, and I have to give them credit for making the characters come alive. I read the book about 2 months ago and wasn’t overly impressed by the amount of development each character received. I’m not saying they weren’t well thought out or considered, but the book was super brief as to giving you much about them. To be fair, I listened to the audiobook and might have missed some stuff.
The Watch has a new trailer that shows a bit more of the alien menace that acts as the bad guy in the film. I have a question. Is the film using real aliens as a substitute for neighborhood watches shooting illegal immigrants? Cause that seems wrong.
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man has two new photos that focus on how good Emma Stone looks as a blonde. I think that’s all they’re really about. Nothing else. No badass Spider-Man action or naked boobs.
RoboCop has cast Gary Oldman as Norton. Norton wasn’t much in the original film, or perhaps not at all, as he’s the scientist that brings Officer Murphy back to life as RoboCop. Director Jose Padilha explained that his film will deal more with how a man is turned into a robot, and what that might do to his psyche, rather than simply being a film about how awesome RoboCop is.
Wait. I WANT A FILM ABOUT HOW AWESOME ROBOCOP IS!!!!!!!!! Darn it.
