The first Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot is now online!  When you own the network that airs a show that provides interconnecting tissue to your cinematic universe, you can get away with doing more than showing off a thirty-second teaser.  Enter Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which debuted a brief teaser during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night.  The quick TV spot at that space-based property gave us a nice behind-the-scenes look at the film, along with commentary from Kevin Feige, and stars Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Bradley Cooper.

You’ll have to wait until August 1st to view the movie in full, but for now, hit the jump to watch the first Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot.

Universal has released a new TV spot for A Million Ways to Die in the West.  The story revolves around a cowardly farmer (MacFarlane) who backs out of a gunfight and subsequently loses his girlfriend.  When he later meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who teaches him how to shoot, he gets an opportunity to win his pride back, but must choose between reclaiming an old love or kindling a new one.  The plot thickens when the outlaw returns to claim his woman.  I’m really looking forward to this movie, especially since this TV spot shows the jokes won’t just be foul language and slapstick.  There’s also a business called the “Moustachery”.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  The film also stars Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi, and Neil Patrick HarrisA Million Ways to Die in the West opens on May 30th.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released the first TV spot for Doug Liman’s sci-fi action film Edge of Tomorrow.  The film stars Tom Cruise as a military officer who is killed within minutes of a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race.  He wakes up and is forced to relive the day over and over again, but it allows him to become a better soldier, and perhaps change his fate thanks to the help of a fellow officer played by Emily Blunt.   Since it looks like Cruise’s character will be dying many times, not all of the deaths are going to be super-heroic, and a couple of those less-than-prestigious fatalities are shown here.

The first TV spot for Brett Ratner‘s Hercules has gone online.  Not to be confused with the Hercules movie that came out earlier this year, Ratner’s take on the Greek legend is billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  The story takes place after Hercules’ famous twelve labors, and has him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.”  This TV spot contains some new footage including Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) throwing a goddamn horse.

In addition to releasing a new TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount also released a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV spot during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards (MTV and Paramount are both part of the big, happy Viacom family).  This TV spot emphasizes the importance of brotherhood and “nothing is as strong as family,” especially when your family consists of giant, mutated turtles and a rat.  Speaking of which, this TV spot also provides a brief look at the turtles’ sensei, Splinter (who will be voiced by Tony Shalhoub).

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  The film also stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner with Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Leonardo.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.

New TV Spot for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Starring Mark Wahlberg

Paramount has released a new TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor and family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  Age of Extinction takes place a considerable time after the events of Dark of the Moon, and the U.S. Government now feels that there is no use for Transformers here on Earth.  This new clip is mostly stuff we saw in the trailer, but I think that even from this 30-second spot, I have a good idea of the plot: one giant robot will hit another giant robot; people scatter in terror.

Hit the jump to check out the Transformers: Age of Extinction TV spot.  The film also stars Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing. Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27th.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released two new TV spots for Godzilla.  I continue to be impressed at how little the studios are showing from the movie.  While other summer blockbusters are rushing to reveal as much as possible, Godzilla is still teasing.  Granted, we’re still six weeks away from the movie’s release, and there’s plenty of time to give away too much, but for the time being, it’s nice to get new footage, but not so much that the film will be slightly less exciting when it arrives.

If you couldn’t get enough of the post-apocalypse during tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead, the commercial breaks had you covered with the first TV spot for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  The spot finally provided us with some new, finished FX footage of the apes, and they’re looking good.  I really like how director Matt Reeves is not only putting his own mark on the franchise, but trying to find subtle ways to show the apes as a growing force and a growing civilization.

Summit has released a new featurette for Neil Burger’s adaptation of the best-selling novel, Divergent.  The story takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities.  Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups, and faces grave consequences if it’s revealed that she’s “Divergent”.  Theo James plays Four, Tris’ instructor and love-interest, and this featurette provides a behind-the-scenes look at the character and his performance.  I haven’t seen any of James’ previous work, so I don’t know how he’ll handle the emotional scenes, but from a physical standpoint, he fits the bill.

Hit the jump to check out the featurette.  The film also stars Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, and Kate WinsletDivergent opens on March 21st. [Update: We've also added a new TV spot]

Summit has released a new TV spot for the adaptation of the young adult novel Divergent.  The story takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities.  Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.”  This TV, which aired during the Winter Olympics, puts a heavy emphasis on the action, and it looks good.  Why divergence is dangerous remains unexplained, so I assume that will be the mystery at the center of the film.

New Teasers for Disney XD’s Upcoming Animated Series STAR WARS REBELS

star wars rebels

Disney has released two brief teasers for their upcoming animated series, Star Wars Rebels.  The series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.  It’s kind of weird seeing a promo for something Star Wars-related taking a page from an ad for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but it’s not surprising.  And among the age group Star Wars Rebels is targeting, Hunger Games is huge.  As for how the show looks, the animation style doesn’t really do much for me, but now that The Clone Wars is over, this is going to be the only option for kids looking for a weekly fix of animated Star Wars.

Hit the jump to check out the teasers.  Star Wars Rebels premieres this fall on Disney XD.
