For those of you watching the Super Bowl tonight, you probably won’t even see this post until tomorrow. But for those of you who are more excited about the movie TV spots they showed than you are for the the actual game itself, you might want to hit the jump to check out the spots they aired tonight for Cowboys & Aliens, Battle: Los Angeles, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Thor, Super 8, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Captain American: The First Avenger!
Directed By Michael Bay; stars Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugo Weaving, Patrick Dempsey, Peter Cullen, John Turturro and Frank Welker. Release Date: July 1st.
Directed by J.J. Abrams; Release Date: June 10th.
Personally, I am really surprised by the teaser for Captain America, and blown away by the spot for Super 8. While I’m anticipating all of these, I am really interested in seeing how these two turn out more than any of the others.
Super 8, in particular, seems intriguing simply because it really feels like a return to the days where a lot of films came out with child actors as the main stars of the show (E.T., The Goonies, The Sandlot, Stand By Me, etc.). It looks like this will really be J.J. Abrams’ love letter to the “kid adventure” genre – especially since Spielberg is on board as producer. I can’t wait!
