At this rate, we’ll see the all of the TV spots that movie studios plan to unveil at the Super Bowl before the game even airs. We recently compiled Disney’s various teasers for their full-length game day ads, and now videos for “World War Z” and “Snitch” have been released.
The “World War Z” teaser will be the one that airs on February 3. There’s not really anything new here, but at least it does set up the foreboding tone necessary for a zombie movie on this scale. Brad Pitt’s face and the 30-second tease might be enough to convince Super Bowl audiences to check out the film when it comes out on June 21.
Then there’s the TV spot for “Snitch,” the new movie from Dwayne Johnson that is coming out on February 22. He plays a father who goes undercover for the DEA to help his son get out of a 10-year prison sentence. The movie also stars Susan Sarandon, Jon Bernthal, Benjamin Bratt and Michael K. Williams.
These aren’t the only movies being promoted during the Super Bowl. Paramount is airing a “Star Trek Into Darkness” 30-second teaser and a 30-second “World War Z” promo, while Universal has paid for a 30-second “Fast 6″ ad. The Super Bowl takes place on February 3.

If you’re a fan of Todd Margaretstar David Cross, then you know he isn’t afraid to stand up for the every day American’s rights. And in the latest sneak peek of W/Bob and David, the Netflix series that reunites him with Bob Odenkirk, Cross plays a Constitutional rights enthusiast who does his part to document police abuse for his YouTube followers.
Key and Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key plays a cop in the sketch based on the very real internut subculture of “Know Your Rights” videos.
For more David, be sure to catch the return of Todd Margaret on January 7th, 2016 at 10P. Todd is back and very, very different.

“World War Z” and “Snitch” Super Bowl TV spots revealed
Documentary Now! closes out its 50th season this week with the film “Gentle & Soft: The Story of the Blue Jean Committee,” a Behind the Music-style look at the rise and fall of one of the most successful purveyors of mellow, California-style soft rock. Despite the fact that the members of BJC hailed from Chicago, their hits like “Catalina Breeze” fit in perfectly with contemporaries like Kenny Loggins, Hall & Oates, Poco and other giants of “Yacht Rock.” (The band’s feathered hair and awesome ‘staches also helped.)
In honor of the Blue Jean Committee’s story finally being told, check out our tribute to the most epic facial hair in soft rock.
10. Paul Davis
The bearded “I Go Crazy” singer gets extra points for his luxurious mane of blonde hair.
9. Seals and Crofts
“Summer Breeze” makes us feel fine and so does the one-two punch of Seals & Crofts’ mesmerizing beard/goatee combo.
8. Rupert Holmes
Mr. Holmes’ neatly trimmed beard doesn’t excuse the fact that he was using the personals column to cheat on his lady. “The Pina Colada Song” is basically the Ashley Madison of its day.
7. Pretty much every member of Orleans
The ’70s bros in Orleans loved two things — beards and going shirtless on album covers.
6. England Dan and John Ford Coley
Ladies, these guys (and their mustaches) would really love to see you tonight.
5. Bobby Kimball from Toto
You might remember Toto for their monster soft rock jams “Rosanna” and “Africa.” But if you’re like us, you see the majestic follicles of singer Bobby Kimball’s mustache when you close your eyes and drift away on a blissful wave of smooth.
Circle the day on your calendar and mark your sundial, because Portlandia is returning to IFC for its sixth season on Thursday, January 21st at 10P ET/PT for ten all-new episodes.
In season six, Fred and Carrie embark on all new Portland-based adventures, including inadvertently creating a ramen noodle monster that wreaks havoc on the city.
Other things to look forward to this season: Doug and Claire break up, only to wind up frustrated by a way-younger party girl and an overly caring feminist, respectively. Dave and Kath decide to run a marathon that takes place the following day. Fred turns grey overnight and, in seeking answers from the universe, gets sucked into a black hole. Kyle MacLachlan, reprising his role as the Mayor, tries to lure a tech company to Portland and also puts the moves on Carrie with a canister of frozen sperm from his office refrigerator.
Guest stars coming to Portlandia this season include Jillian Bell (Workaholics), Louis C.K. (Louie), musician Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips, rocker Glenn Danzig, Gregory Gourdet (Top Chef), Mitchell Hurwitz (Arrested Development), Moshe Kasher (Another Period), Zoe Kravitz (Dope, Mad Max), John Levenstein (Kroll Show), NPR’s Kai Ryssdal, Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), Robert Smigel (Saturday Night Live), and Bitsie Tulloch (rimm).

Ever wonder if Jackie, Kelso, Fez, Donna, Hyde, and Eric ever made it out of Red‘s basement? According to James Franco, those dumbasses definitely did not.
In a new episode of AOL’s “Making a Scene with James Franco,” the actor peered into the future of the gang from That ’70s Show to see what they’d be up to if the show actually continued into their 70s. Turns out they’re still sitting around the basement, sharing a joint, and listening to some of the Steve Miller Band’s greatest hits.
In the sketch, aptly called “That 70s ’70s Show,” Franco plays both a stoned, elderly Kelso as well as a nostril-hair heavy Eric Forman. The only member of the crew who has made it out of the basement is Donna, who has sadly passed away into a higher plane of existence (yes, it’s possible for them to get higher) leaving Eric to mourn the loss of his one true love.
