Toy Story 4

As the familiar tune of Randy Newman's "You've Got a Friend in Me" plays in the background, Woody and his long lost paramour Bo Peep are reunited at a carnival in a TV spot for Toy Story 4. The couple searches for a missing Buzz Lightyear who is revealed to be strung up as a top prize for a carnival game. As the action figure contemplates his new predicament, he is tormented by two stuffed animals voiced by Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele who are jealous over the attention he's getting on the prize wall.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

The first look at Guillermo Del Toro's adaptation of the popular horror story anthology Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, was actually unveiled through a series of short teasers over the course of the Super Bowl. Directed by André Øvredal with Del Toro serving as a co-writer and producer, the adaptation of author Alvin Schwartz's unsettling tales recreates classic stories from the anthology while introducing new equally sinister evils in TV spots that were easily the creepiest of the night.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark opens in theaters everywhere on August 9.


Between his appearances in TV spots for Toy Story 4 and The Twilight Zone, Jordan Peele's presence was felt throughout ads for Super Bowl LIII, including for the latest trailer for his upcoming film Us. As a voiceover discusses "odd coincidences," the new promo expands on the first trailer of a young family facing home intruders who appear identical to themselves. Leaning more heavily into horror elements than Peele's previous film, the critically acclaimed Get Out, the new movie is sure to keep audiences at the edge of their seats.

Us opens in theaters everywhere on March 22.
