This weekend was Trumperica’s annual Super Bowl sportsball extravaganza, featuring a lot of muscle-men in glittery spandex touching each other for points, and overpriced promo slots selling Mountain Dew and Doritos with a celebrity rap battle. Also, ads for upcoming films and shows like Solo: A Star Wars Story, Avengers: Infinity War, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and the next season of Westworld, just in time for your Monday lunch break.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
The 45-second teaser trailer for Solo doesn’t give much away – including a proper look at Alden Ehrenreich as the film’s eponymous star – but I guess that’s the point of a teaser trailer. A full-length trailer is expected out sometime later today, apparently, but in the meantime, here’s… Chewie? It’s probably Chewie.
UPDATE: AAAAAAND IT’S OUT!
Avengers: Infinity War
It’s an ensemble cast of ensemble casts, and it’s going to rule.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Did none of these guys watch the original Jurassic Park sequels? Stop messing with dinosaurs. But no, they’re still messing with dinosaurs, and it’s almost definitely going to end in catastrophe.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
I didn’t even know there was a new Mission: Impossible movie in production. How is Tom Cruise still getting jobs, anyway? Maybe that’s the real Mission: Impossible. M E T A.
HBO’s other TV show is back with a new season starting in April, and that reminds me that I need to rewatch the first season before it’s out because, like, a lot of stuff happened.
The Cloverfield Paradox
You don’t even have to wait for this one, because – GASP! – it’s out now on Netflix.
“Okay, so it’s basically Die Hard,” the intern explained. “But with some stuff changed to make it less obvious.”
“Go on,” said the executive, leaning back in his chair.
