Another Super Bowl means more Super Bowl movie teasers, an aspect of this weekend almost as anticipated as the big game itself. There were some very teasing clips shown from some big movies this year so lets take a look!
Perhaps the least revealing teaser of the night was the one for this years "Minions", the Despicable Me spin off movie that I cannot wait to see! We get no sense of the plot from this film, but who cares! We just love seeing Minions flounder and speak gibberish! Teaser Score - 5/10
Now this one might take the cake for me, the short teaser for this summers "Jurassic World" was fantastic! Echoing the same tone that was shown in the last trailer but clarifying a few things for us. Now we know for sure that Chris Pratt's character is training Velociraptors, and will use them in the hunt for the Indominus Rex, a hybrid Dino with a passion for killing. Teaser Score - 9/10
The full length trailer for "Ted 2" dropped online earlier this week but this short teaser gave us a little clip very Super Bowl related. Ted and Marky Mark attempt to steal the sperm of Patriots player Tom Brady. This is all in good cause of Ted's sperm donor situation. "Tom Brady?!" John asked after sneaking into the New England Patriots player's bedroom.
"Two MVPs," Ted explained. "Guaranteed Hall of Famer. Now let's give him a hand job into this cup." I wasn't blown away by the full trailer but this funny little clip has given me some faith in the film. BUT.....that is what I originally thought. I later found out this clip is not in the actual film, instead it is solely created for the Super Bowl. Teaser Score - 6/10.
Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland" has yet to give us any detail on story, all we know is that Casey Newton, a young girl from Earth, is transported to an entirely different location known as "Tomorrowland" whenever she touches this specific pin. This teaser gives us nothing, and that's precisely why I love it! We see George Clooney and Hugh Laurie in more detail and Michael Giacchino's beautiful score for the film, and this assures me on my suspicion that this will be one of the years very best films! Teaser Score - 9/10!
With this one, we don't see much new, except a liquid metal exoskeleton and a few more shots of Arnie, but I'm completely sold! I think this is going to be one of the years biggest surprises, coming from Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor who did a decent job with that sequel, I think we're in for an explosive and thoroughly entertaining ride. Teaser Score - 8/10.
PITCH PERFECT 2
Here we get a small clip of an sing off and a couple of jokes from Rebel Wilson but that's about it. The first Pitch Perfect surprised everyone, so I have hopes for this sequel, but the teaser, wasn't great. Teaser Score - 5/10
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
Of course, next week the 'worldwide phenomenon' "Fifty Shades Of Grey" hits theaters and I'm not a supporter of all the hype....but, I have to admit, the marketing has been pretty great. The trailers have surprised me, the film looks well shot, well acted and seems to capture the steaminess of the book that people love so much. This teaser showed us a glimpse of humor that we haven't seen in any previous footage. With the 'play room' line at the end. Teaser Score - 7/10.
FAST & FURIOUS 7
"Furious 7" is again ramping up the action in this once stale franchise, this installment looks to be the best of the bunch. With horror director James Wan having a go at some insanely ridiculous and jaw dropping action sequences. The effects look great, the action intense and the ridiculousness at an all time high! If you told me five years ago that I'd be losing my mind over a "Fast & Furious" movie, I'd have slapped you in the face! Teaser Score - 9/10!
KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE
Blah, blah, blah this teaser was great! I've already seen the film so it's hard for me to get excited about a teaser anymore, but may I let you know, "Kingsman" is insanely good! Its every bit as fun as the trailers suggest, with more violence and filthy humor than you've been led to believe.
