New GOTHAM TV Spot Introduces the Good, the Evil, and the Beginning, Plus Details Emerge about the Series’ Version of the Joker Character

A new TV spot has emerged for Fox’s upcoming comic book series, Gotham, which hammers home the fact that it’s a prequel set in the title city well before Batman cleans up the streets.  It puts the focus squarely on James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), which is exactly where it should be since he’ll be the protagonist taking viewers along on his journey.  Now, while the show does include some unique versions of the comics’ villains, the greatest of them won’t be showing up right away.  Much like Batman himself will take some time to grow into his cape and cowl, Gotham’s version of the Joker will also be a slow burn.  And now we’ve got some details of how he might come about.

Extended HERCULES TV Spot: Dwayne Johnson Battles a Hydra

Paramount Pictures has released a new, extended Hercules TV spot for director Brett Ratner’s upcoming actioner.  The “revisionist take” on the classic myth takes place after Hercules’ famous twelve labors, as we find 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 new footage sells the film’s action angle quite hard, while also revealing that Johnson won’t be denied a few entertaining quips here and there.  I’m a big fan of Johnson, but I’m finding it hard to get excited about Hercules.  The phrases “Inspired” and “Directed by Brett Ratner” don’t exactly go together, but I was hoping for at least some sense of something new or interesting here.  Johnson’s charisma goes a long way, though, so hopefully his presence makes the pic worthwhile.

Hit the jump to watch the new Hercules TV spot.  The film also stars John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph FiennesPeter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina ShaykHercules opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 25th.

New TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES TV Spot Teases Possible Origin of Title Heroes

Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is sneaking up on us like the stealthy ninja that it is, but it hasn’t exactly hit us over the head with its marketing just yet.  That’s a good move, because they’ve shown just enough to get a sense of the movie’s tone and story without giving everything away.  Everything I’ve seen so far has actually been pretty impressive, so it’s no surprise that the film’s latest TV spot is more of the same, even if it does appear to share a little more on the plot side of things.  Dubbed “Created as Weapons,” the short commercial teases what is possibly a unique origin story for the title characters.

Starring Megan FoxWill ArnettWilliam FichtnerAlan RitchsonPete PloszekJeremy HowardNoel Fisher, and Danny Woodburn, with Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub voicing Leonardo and Splinter respectively, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.  Hit the jump to watch the new TV spot.

The steady stream of Guardians of the Galaxy marketing continues as Marvel has released an extended TV spot for their upcoming sci-fi action film.  The story follows five intergalactic misfits—Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper)—as they set out to protect a powerful and mysterious orb from the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace).  This extended TV spot features plenty of fresh footage for a film that looks better and better.  Also, kudos to Marvel for their song selections when it comes to these ads.  Most movies and TV spots just pull from whatever is topping the iTunes chart.  Guardians is playing classic tunes.  They’ve used “Hooked on a Feeling”, “Spirit in the Sky”, and now “Cherry Bomb”.  Well done.

Hit the jump to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy extended TV spot.  The film opens in 3D on August 1st, and also stars Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz.

It’s never too early to wish someone a Happy Christmas, especially when we have an exclusive look at a new TV spot from writer-director Joe Swanberg’s film to share with you.  In case you missed the dramedy’s trailer, the film centers on an immature, hard-partying twentysomething (Anna Kendrick) who moves in with her brother (Swanberg), his novelist wife (Melanie Lynskey), and their young baby, only to complicate their otherwise enjoyable lives.  For fans of Kendrick’s work in Swanberg’s 2013 film Drinking Buddies, this is an interesting role for her to take on since she gets to play the other side of the coin.

Also starring Lena Dunham and Mark Webber, Happy Christmas will be available VOD on June 26th and opens in theaters on July 25th.  Hit the jump to watch our exclusive TV spot for Happy Christmas.

THE LEFTOVERS: Christopher Eccleston Delivers a Sermon on The Sudden Departure in New TV Spot

Since I don’t watch True Blood (and judging by Allison’s recent recap, I’m not missing anything), there’s a huge gap in my Sunday night viewings since Game of Thrones has wrapped for the year.  That gap might be filled with HBO’s new series, The Leftovers.  The story takes place after the 2% of the population mysterious disappears, and centers on the people in a small town that didn’t make the cut.  HBO has released a new TV spot, and like the others, it’s intense, mysterious, and it’s interesting enough to make me want to at least check out the pilot.

Hit the jump to check out The Leftovers TV spot.  The series premieres on June 29th at 10pm, and stars Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, and Chris Zylka.

The villains of Batman’s Rogues Gallery might be just as well known as the caped crusader himself, but Fox’s new series Gotham aims to introduce them in an all new manner.  A recently released TV spot does just that, as viewers get to see eye to eye with the infamous ne’er-do-wells long before Batman arrives on the scene.  In case you haven’t been following the development of this show, it takes place during a time of strife in the title city, when Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is recently orphaned and a young Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) attempts to bring order to the streets.

Also starring Donal LogueBarbara Kean, Jada Pinkett SmithRobin Lord TaylorCamren BicondovaSean PertweeCory Michael SmithRobin Lord Taylor, and Zabryna GuevaraGotham debuts on Fox this fall. Hit the jump to watch the new TV spot.

New TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Clip and TV Spot Feature Threats and Explosions

Paramount has released a new Transformers: Age of Extinction clip and TV spot.  In the movie, Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor/family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  In the clip, Kelsey Grammer‘s character levels a grave threat at Wahlberg saying that he has to either play ball or else his teenage daughter will be killed.  The TV spot shows Transformers beating up other Transformers and riding around on Dinobots, so you can see that the tone is perfectly balanced.  I don’t know how you make this franchise look phoned in, but I can’t believe a film with this many explosions can look so ho-hum.

Hit the jump to check out the Transformers: Age of Extinction clip and TV spot.  The film opens in 3D on June 27th, and also stars Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng, and Titus Welliver.

With Transformers: Age of Extinction due out in just about one month, we’re starting to see a bit more from the Michael Bay film via trailers, images, posters, and TV spots.  Oddly enough, we didn’t get a whole lot of Kelsey Grammer until these two recently released TV spots.  Imagine my surprise and delight when these short montages also featured plenty of dino riding courtesy of Optimus Prime and Grimlock.  (Just one step away from someone greenlighting an actual Dino-Riders movie…)
