Somehow, last night, I missed the Super Bowl spot for Nobody. Then again, I also somehow also missed the streaker running across the field. I was probably busy jotting down notes about the commercials that I had just seen. Who knows? It was a strange night.
Anyway, here’s the Super Bowl spot for Nobody!
Bob Odenkirk, action star! That’s kind of a strange idea but I guess it could happen. Bryan Cranston went from doing comedy to doing heavy drama. John Krasinski is another example. Watching The Office, you would never expect to see Jim Halpert blowing away the bad guys but that’s exactly what happened. Of course, it looks like there’s going to be a lot of humor to go along with all of the action in this film so I guess that’s good. Eventually, someone will cast Bob Odenkirk in one of those grim and depressing cop films where he’s like an alcoholic who spends all of his time looking at old case files and searching for that one clue that will put the murderer away. I fully support the right of Bob Odenkirk to do new and different things!
There haven’t been that many movie spots during this Super Bowl. It’s a shame but I guess it’s to be expected, given the current state of theaters and studios and everything else. During the first half, we saw trailers and commercials for Old, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and this very brief one for Raya and the Last Dragon:
It’s a short commercial but …. hey, it looks cute! I’ll watch it when it comes out.
Right after the game ended, PIXAR snuck in this little teaser for Toy Story 4. I have to admit that I nearly changed the channel and missed it. I’m glad I didn’t!
Anyway, it looks like Buzz is still getting into trouble and Woody is still trying to hold it all together. To be honest, I thought Toy Story 3 ended the series on a perfect note so I’ll be curious to see what they do with Toy Story 4. But you know what? It’s PIXAR and it’s Toy Story so I have faith!
This film was produced and written by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez. According to this spot, if you don’t see this film in a theater, the world will end and it’ll be all your fault. So, I guess you better make the time.
Hannawas my favorite film of 2011 so I’m really hoping that the Amazon Prime adaptation does it justice. Here’s the Super Bowl spot which, if nothing else, is far more exciting than the game that is currently being played in Atlanta.
Hanna will be available to Amazon Prime subscribers, right after the game ends.
Our Planet is a new Netflix series where Sir David Attenbourgh explores never-before-seen habitats. I always get a little bit worried about nature documentaries because they always seem to lead up to a bunch of tigers eating a gazelle but, judging from this Super Bowl spot, it looks like the show features some really impressive footage.
Plus, I can’t resist anything that feature animals looking quizzically at a camera.
