Super bowl 2016 movie adverts

This past weekend was the Super Bowl. I know that it’s a sports thing in America that gets about a third of the country in front of their TVs at the same time. But that’s basically the full extent of my knowledge. The only other thing I know is that Americans (specifically Hollywood) love using the opportunity to release a ton of new TV adverts.

10 Cloverfield Lane

JJ Abrams surprises again: 10 Cloverfield Lane teaser

Remember Cloverfield? Well JJ Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot, who also produced the 2008 found footage monster/disaster film directed by Matt Reeves, released a teaser for 10 Cloverfield Lane on Friday.

The film, which promises to show the human being behind the rock icon, got favourable reviews and generated positive buzz after showing at TIFF, and I can’t wait for a local release.

The Jungle Book (2016)

Scarlett Johansson seduces in the Jungle Book teaser trailer

I had a dream once where Scarlett Johansson tried to seduce me. Then it came true in the first teaser trailer for The Jungle Book. That’s the upcoming 3D live-action remake of the 1967 Disney classic. I absolutely love the look of the film, and the amazing cast is sure to impress: Continue reading “Scarlett Johansson seduces in the Jungle Book teaser trailer”
