More Super Bowl Promos: Drive Angry TV Spot Preview and Hop Poster
02.04.11 by BJSprecher
Joining the list of movies that will be advertised during this weekend's Super Bowl XLV is Lionsgate's new 3-D supernatural revenge movie, Drive Angry, starring Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage as a damned soul who escapes from hell to save his granddaughter from being sacrificed by a satanic cult. Like DreamWorks and Disney, who recently revealed their TV spots in part or in full, Lionsgate has released a preview clip of the new TV spot that will air during one of the commercial breaks.
Drive Angry was written by Todd Farmer and directed by Patrick Lussier, the duo behind My Bloody Valentine 3-D. Amber Heard, Billy Burke and William Fichter also star.
Also hopping aboard the Super Bowl bandwagon is a movie from the opposite end of the genre spectrum from Drive Angry, the animated follow-up to Despicable Me from producer Chris Melednadri's Illumination Entertainment, Hop. Directed by Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks), Hop follows a slacker (voiced by James Marsden) who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny (Russell Brand) and has to take over the little furry fellow's holiday duties. While there has been no word on whether Hop will have a TV spot during the Super Bowl, a Super Bowl-themed poster for the movie has been released to promote the movie.
