Tonight, during the MTV Movie Awards, Hollywood’s biggest studios took the opportunity to hype up audiences for some of the summer’s biggest releases. Over the course of the evening, we saw new TV spots for blockbusters like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Edge of Tomorrow, Transformers: Age of Extinction and many more.
Honestly, I can’t say that I’m terribly excited for this summer’s offerings, especially when you look at what 2015 has in store for us. If there is one film I’m eager to see though, it’s Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West. As demonstrated in the new TV spot released tonight, it just looks so damn funny. The director hit it out of the park a few years ago with Ted, and I have no doubt that he’ll see similar success with his follow-up.
In regards to the other stuff, the bombastic action films with over-inflated budgets, I think they can go either way. Nothing here looks particularly unique or exciting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that seeing Dwayne Johnson fight massive CGI beasts, or giant robots going head to head under the direction of Michael Bay, could make for some great popcorn entertainment, but I just feel like we’ve seen all of this stuff before. In fact, Edge of Tomorrow even goes as far to rip the plot right out of Groundhog Day, only with a bit more of a sci-fi twist.
Enough from me though, check out all the new TV spots below and be sure to leave a comment letting us know which film has you most excited.
