‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Super Bowl trailer debuts online

- February 4th, 2013

Between the wings, dip and beer, you might have missed the plethora of movie ads studios dropped during last night’s Super Bowl.

There were new spots for Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, Fast & Furious 6, The Lone Ranger, Oz The Great and Powerful and World War Z.

My personal fave was the Into Darkness spot.

After months of teasing, we get a fresh look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain going mano a mano with Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk. Very Hannibal Lecter-y.

“I’m better,” the steely Cumberbatch says.

“At what?” Kirk replies.

“Everything.”

There are also new scenes of the U.S.S. Enterprise plummeting towards Earth and Spock (Zachary Quinto) in a volcano. And the new trailer comes with a new tagline: ‘Our world will fall.’

For extreme Trek fans, Paramount has revealed a new app for the film.

Not to be outdone by Trek, Marvel released an extended trailer for Iron Man 3 that kinda irritates with a Downey gag off the top, but we do get a look at a pulse-pounding sequence in which Tony Stark has to save passengers after Air Force One is attacked. Thirteen people are careening towards the ground and Iron Man can only rescue four. Hashtag: #superheroproblems.

There were also new spots for Fast & Furious 6, The Lone Ranger, Oz The Great and Powerful and World War Z.

Watch: ‘World War Z’ Super Bowl ad

With new ads for Iron Man and The Lone Ranger set to debut during the Super Bowl, Paramount wasn’t about to let itself be outdone. They too will be joining the trailer sweepstakes when they air a new ad for Brad Pitt’s World War Z.

But ahead of Sunday’s game, a teaser debuted online late Thursday that showcased more scenes of the rampaging zombies that will plague the human race. And we get a further glimpse of just how bad things will get in the Marc Forster-directed film.

“We’ve lost the East Coast,” a voiceover informs us. “China’s dark.”

“What is this?” Pitt asks. “We don’t know,” comes the answer.

Corny lines, super-cool visuals.

Basically, it’s a shorter version of the trailer that debuted last November, but there are several new scenes that definitely up the excitement factor for the film.

World War Z is based on Max Brooks’ 2006 novel which collects individual vignettes that recount the near destruction of humanity by a zombie plague.

The loosely connected stories in the book will, presumably, be tied together by Pitt’s character, Gerry Lane, a UN worker who races around the world to try to identify and stop the zombie pandemic.

If you haven’t read the book, you have less than five months. The film opens on June 21.

‘Iron Man 3′: New poster and Super Bowl teaser arrive

- January 31st, 2013

In between the chips and dip, Marvel will introduce a new ad for Iron Man 3 during this Sunday’s Super Bowl.

But…a brand-spanking new 15-second spot just arrived in our in-box that you can take a look at below. In it, we see Don Cheadle sporting the Iron Patriot outfit.

We don’t get any new footage of Sir Ben Kingsley, but in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. praised the actor’s villainous portrayal of the Mandarin.

“Sir Ben is probably going to steal the movie,” he says. “There are a lot of contenders who may, but right now he’s probably at the top of that list.”

The film opens May 3.
