So all you football fans, have you recovered yet? My hubby watched it next to me but I barely even watched the game. I thought the commercials were mostly lame, apart from the memorable PSA on drunk drinking featuring Helen Mirren and the one with Liam Neeson (though after it’s done I had no idea what he was selling!)
Here’s the advert if you missed it, I thought I’d post it here as apparently the young man featured in the commercial is Liam’s own 20-year-old son Micheál Neeson (per The Wrap)
No wonder they look alike, and there’s a family connection with the director of the spot too. It’s directed by Jake Scott, son of Sir Ridley who made the famous Apple commercial 1984. This one is nowhere near as memorable though.
Now, the trailers!
This post could pretty much double as my most-anticipated big-budget movies of 2016 🙂 Well, it seems that every comic-book characters are at war with each other. It’ll start with the BIGGEST superhero battle ever, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opens just a little over a month away on March 25. It’s perhaps the most bizarre partnership ever… Turkish Airlines?? They even made two versions, Gotham vs Metropolis:
At this point I’m going into BVS with tepid expectations, I’m more curious than excited. I REALLY hope it’ll be good!
Now, the one I most look forward to is Captain America: Civil War, which pits Capt against Iron Man. It’s gonna be EPIC!! Which side am I on?

Capt and Iron Man aren’t the only dueling Marvel characters. The mutants in X-Men: Apocalypse set aside their hatred for humanity to fight against their own extinction. I’ve been excited for most X-Men movies, but I’m not sure about this one. Even with Oscar Isaac as the villain, I kind of get a bad vibe about it. I’m hoping to be proven wrong though.
Hey, the new Bourne movie is apparently out this Summer! Heh, they couldn’t find writers who could come up with a better title than Jason Bourne?? Apart from that, I’m excited to see Matt Damon back kicking everyone’s butt under Paul Greengrass‘ kinetic direction. I was hoping to see Alicia Vikander but we only hear her narrating the trailer, perhaps they haven’t even completed the shoot yet?
I’m slightly more intrigued by The Jungle Book adaptation, I mean the voice cast is fantastic: Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba, Bill Murray, just to name a few. It sure looks better than the live-action Tarzan movie.
Now tonight I’ll be seeing Deadpool after a botched screening last week due to technical difficulty, ugh. This isn’t a movie I was even looking forward to, esp since I’m not even fond of Ryan Reynolds. But the rave reviews got me intrigued so I hope it’s as witty as the critics made it out to be.
So which of these movies are you most excited to see?
