There was an idea. To bring together a group of remarkable people. To play American football. YAWN!
Last night it was the Super Bowl, some sort of huge American football event where two teams play each and it’s a bigger deal than any other match. Frankly I couldn’t give a patriotic fuck about it, not a clue who won and I’m just not a fan of sports (this coming from someone who likes to sit down watching things and then pass judgement upon them).
However something fantastic happened last night, which occurs each year at around this time. Multiple trailers and TV spots were released, giving us something much more exciting to looking forward to. There’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout, some new footage for Avengers Infinity War, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (okay that’s not looking very exciting) and the highly anticipated (despite the fact that Disney allegedly think it’s going to tank) Solo: A Star Wars story.
Here are hopefully all of the ones that showed last night, if I’ve missed any please tell someone who cares! Well, enjoy!
Yet another Super Bowl is over, if you want to know who won check a sports page. I’m not particularly interested in the sport, however I do have an eye for the bits in between. The adverts and, of course, the short trailers known as TV spots. For people in the UK, we were able to see quit a few of them before the event itself. However several were not shown until the ad breaks of the big day itself. So here is a round-up of all of the TV spots for upcoming movies being released this year.
There’s lots to chose from, I think my favourite is Ted 2, very funny and apt for the Super Bowl. Have a look and see what is your favourite. Okay, I’ll tell you, the New England Patriots won. YAY!
21 years ago I watched Jurassic Park for the very first time. I was 8 and in the cinema with my cousins and my brother. Up until that point in my short life, I never truly understood fear. I was petrified. I ran to the toilet several times, unsure of where else I could escape the images and sounds of the mighty T-Rex and it wasn’t until years later that I finally watched the film in full. I’m truly glad that I did, it’s remarkable even to this day, it looks and sounds amazing and it hasn’t aged at all. The dinosaurs move as you would expect them to, sound as you want them to, frankly I wouldn’t change a thing. Maybe have even more of the Goldblum but the fact that he’s in that film at all is a dam good thing. Love that guy.
And now we find ourselves a couple of pretty disappointing sequels later, the last being way back in 2001, and we have Jurassic World coming out next year. It’s been a long time since I watched any of the Jurassic films, I may re-visit them before this one comes out. Jurassic World has been plagued by production and pre-production problems, but it seem as if those horrible days of will they / won’t they make the film are all over. Here are a few on set photos with the new stars of this franchise. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt. We also have some concept art with the centre itself and a couple of images of the map of Jurassic World.
