There’s a new teaser trailer out for Episode VII. We all know I could spend a lot of time making statements about the film based on the under-two minutes of footage we have, but I think we all know that I’d be making random guesses and just quietly squeeing inside. Instead I’ll just embed the teaser below and you can come up with stuff yourself. Yadda yadda-Luke Voiceover, yadda yadda-adorable droid, yadda yadda-crashed Star Desroyer…
…Yadda yadda-Han and Chewy are in this one.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters this December.
So, Ant Man is totally coming this summer, ready or not. It’s the finale to the Phase II of Marvel films, and… well… it actually is looking better every day. Today Marvel released the full length trailer for the film, and I think it fits the tone of the existing Marvel universe while also highlighting the lighter feel of the film compared to, say, the Daredevil series.
Also, with Ant Man, it’ll be nice to get a way from New York. Too much stuff happens in Marvel’s New York.
Pixels, which comes out July 24th, has just put out a trailer… and it looks kind of entertaining. I mean, it’s silly — as you’d expect anything to be if it had the premise of “Aliens send recreations of early-80s video games to attack us” — but not actually terrible.
Directed by Chris Columbus, the film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Josh Gad. And I’m probably going to see it.
The third full length trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron is here, and it’s pretty cool. Besides being able to see Quicksilver punch Captain America in the face, the trailer also gives us the first glimpse of Paul Bettany as The Vision — everyone’s favorite cyborg good guy in the film.
Paul Bettany, of course, has been the voice of the AI Jarvis in the Iron Man films, so it’s not exactly hard to figure out who builds The Vision in the film.
Anyway, check it out. As it’s a trailer, it is designed to look as awesome as possible.
So we all know that Community Season 6 is almost upon us, so it makes sense that Yahoo! Screen would put out a trailer with some never before seen footage. And that footage? Well, it sure looks like Community.
Which, y’know, makes sense. Because that’s what it is.
The trailer obviously pays homage to the ones for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and previews the new characters joining the slowly shrinking study group/Save Greendale Committee as this season loses both Yvette Nicole Brown and Season 5’s Jonathan Banks.
iZombie is the newest series from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas. Based off the Vertigo comic, it tells the story of Liv, a zombie who has to keep eating brains to keep herself from going… well… all Walking Dead on everyone. Rather than kill people, she gets a job as a medical examiner.
And then fights crime, like you do.
Anyway, iZombie will premiere March 17th on the CW. Here’s the trailer:
Look, we’re pretty aware of our demographics here at Nerd & Tie. We know that a lot of you didn’t watch the Superbowl, because we know that only about a third of nerds and geeks care about sports. We know that because there are three of us, and only Pher cares about sports.
It’s very scientific.
But since the vast majority of the United States tunes into the Superbowl every year, it means a lot of new ads and teasers for big properties get aired during it… and we definitely care about those.
So, for all of you who chose not to tune in yesterday for one reason or another, here’s a collection of stuff you might have been interested in. And please forgive the fact that sometimes you have to watch an ad longer than the commercial you’re trying to get to. The internet is stupid that way.
So I’m not sure what I was expecting with the new Fantastic Four trailer. I mean, whether the film ends up being good or bad, I knew the trailer would probably impress me. When you have a lot of money, it’s not hard to toss together a beautiful advertisement. I’m not sure though that I expected the trailer to focus on the science aspect in something that almost feels like the early ads for Interstellar.
In any case, if you feel like getting yourself hyped for a film that at least sports a brilliant cast, here it is:
So I could say a lot of stuff about the new Age of Ultron trailer. I could talk about how it focuses on the Hulk and Black Widow. I could talk about how creepy the use of the Pinocchio “Got no strings” song is. I could talk about how James Spader can add just the right amount of creepiness to his voice.
Or I could just share the trailer with you and you could watch it for yourself.
So we’ve known for sure since last week’s “Ant-Size” promo that Marvel was planning on releasing the first teaser trailer for Ant-Man alongside last night’s premiere of Agent Carter. Well, for those of you who missed it (like the people who watch their shows on Hulu the next day… like me), here it is in all its glory.
So sit back, and enjoy Paul Rudd riding a bug.
Yes, that really happens.
