Summit Entertainment provided Coming Soon with two TV spots and a scene from the upcoming movie, Push. The longer video, a two-and-a-half minute action scene from the film, extends and ties together many of the shots we saw the from the trailers for the movie and it looks great.
While I like what I’m seeing enough to see it, my big worry is that there aren’t many other cool action sequences in the film that they haven’t shown us and that would be highly disappointing (that’s what happened with Iron Man). The plot feels like some weak story arc from Heroes, but the action sequences sell me and I hope there’s enough of that to make the movie a good overall experience.
Check out the videos and see what you think:
I like Chris Evans and Djimon Hounsou and I hope this movie does well, but I don’t like the other actors shown in the trailer especially Dakota Fanning and her character. All of her dialogue and scenes from the trailers come off as pure cheese to me so I hope she’s a better character in the full feature.
I’m loving the bullet blocking scenes between Evans and that blonde-haired henchman, I hope there’s more of that than what’s shown in the promotional materials.
In other news, two weeks back I wrote about the new Push flash-website which detailed the powers and characters of the movie as well as some tidbits of story and history to go along with each character. That site was an exclusive to SuperHeroHype.com.
Now, the official website (Push-TheMovie.com) has been updated and it features a pile of information for the film (and is equally as flash-intensive).

So what do you think: Will Push be a kick-ass action movie or Heroes warmed-over?
Push hits theaters February 6, 2009.
