So far 2012 is shaping up to be a fairly good year for movies – and the biggest lineup of blockbusters is still on the way. Today we’ve rounded up some new movie clips and commercials from around the globe to share with you.
We have TV ads that give us a look at Marvel’s lineup of superheroes for The Avengers, as well as the comic book-style action we’ll be seeing in the (hopefully improved) sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Finally, we have the first clip of Peter Berg’s Battleship, an alien-invasion action flick (very loosely) based on the Hasbro board game.
Check out this latest TV spot that “Roll Call’s” the roster of superheroes that will be kicking butt onscreen:
The Avengers will be in (U.S.) Theaters on May 4, 2012.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Fans who were disappointed by the first G.I. Joe film, Rise of Cobra, have been, in general, warily optimistic about what they’ve seen in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailers. Jon Chu was seemingly a good pick to replace director Stephen Sommers (The Mummy), and with action stars like Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson stepping into the franchise – along with a much-improved Cobra Commander – G.I. Joe Retaliation could be a case of getting it right the second time around.

G.I. Joe Retaliation will be in theaters on June 29, 2012.
There’s not a love for Peter Berg’s (Hancock) adaptation of Battleship out here on the Interwebs. People have gotten a look at the film’s trailers and almost universally come away saying it looks more like Transformers 4 than a movie based on a Naval simulation game using plastic ships and colored pegs. Throw in aliens, pop-star Rihanna trying out acting, an overall experience that feels like the second coming of Michael Bay, and there’s all the reason some people need to write off this film completely.
This new clip from Battleship (by way of China) isn’t likely to change naysayers’ minds, either:
Battleship will be in theaters on May 18, 2012.
