February 5, 2018 Alex 0

HBO’s Westworld wrapped up its first season with plenty of twists, surprises, and unanswered questions, and now the show’s upcoming second season has just received its first formal trailer. The spot, which aired during the Super Bowl LII broadcast, features Jeffrey Wright’s Bernard Lowe, Thandie Newton’s Maeve Millay, and Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores Abernathy — along with a peek at an frightening new host.

The spot begins almost like a commercial with the Westworld resort itself, with Dolores commenting in voice-over that “We built this world together… this world where dreams come true.” But things soon turn dark as the spot looks inside the inner workings of the Delos offices, as men with guns take out a herd of synthetic creatures…

NBC’s brief blackout during the Super Bowl was due to an “equipment failure”

February 5, 2018 Alex 0

The Super Bowl briefly went dark tonight after what NBC has attributed to a “brief equipment failure” during a commercial break in the first half. Instead of any ads, viewers just saw a black screen.

NBC claims that no commercial time nor game time was missed. If it had lost ad time, the seconds could have cost millions of ad dollars, considering a 30-second spot has been quoted to cost $5 million.

From NBC Sports spokesperson:
“We had a brief equipment failure that we quickly resolved. No game action or commercial time were missed.”

Users of the NBC app or NBC’s livestream on its website also experienced other difficulties tonight, such as seeing several commercial breaks where the…

The latest Avengers: Infinity War teaser packs a lot of heroes into 30 seconds

February 5, 2018 Alex 0

The latest teaser for Avengers: Infinity War debuted during the Super Bowl tonight, and features all your favorite heroes from the various Marvel properties that have been piling and interlocking for the last 10 years.

Black Panther is there, as is the original set of Avengers, as is the Guardians of the Galaxy crew, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man. This should be fun and very confusing! They’re all teaming up to face down Thanos, the evil space god last seen in a post-credits scene from 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. He was fully introduced as a primary villain in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but his status as the big bad guy of the extended universe was hinted at in a…

February 5, 2018 Alex 0

The first teaser trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s China-set disaster movie Skyscraper aired during the Super Bowl tonight. The full trailer is set to debut during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon after the game.

Skyscraper stars Johnson as Will Ford, a former FBI agent who works in skyscraper security. Neve Campbell (House of Cards, The Craft), Chin Han (Contagion, The Dark Knight), and Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones, Peaky Blinders) co-star. There was little information about the plot of the movie before the release of tonight’s teaser trailer, but it looks likethere will be a skyscraper. Cool! Will Ford’s family is “trapped 240 floors in the air,” and some scary lady is singing a weird cover of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.”

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s new trailer looks downright terrifying

February 4, 2018 Alex 0

Three years ago, Jurassic World rebooted the Steven Spielberg dinosaur franchise, and the inevitable sequel has just received its latest trailer. The clip from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom builds on the first trailer that was released last year, and sets up the basic premise: the island that the Jurassic World theme park was built on is under threat, and both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s characters are brought in to help save the dinosaurs from extinction… again.

The first Jurassic World, which was directed by Colin Trevorrow, ended up grossing more than $1.67 billion worldwide, and marked a dramatic return to form for a film series that had remained dormant for 14 years. The new film is written by the same writing duo of…

After weeks of waiting, Disney has finally released its first official look at its upcoming Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story with a brief teaser during this evening’s Super Bowl.

The teaser opens with an Imperial recruiting officer asking a recruit what branch he’s interested in joining, to which he’s told, “I’m going to be a pilot, the best in the galaxy.” Along the way, we get some glimpses of a new-looking Millennium Falcon, Woody Harrelson’s Beckett, Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and a brief glimpse of the film’s titular character, played by Alden Ehrenreich, all accompanied by some all-too-quick action scenes involving fighters, speeders, and what look like trains.
