It was another star-studded Super Bowl and more than ever Companies are hoping for Big Ticket Stars to push sales of their Products through the roof with the power of Celebrity Endorsement. The likes of Scarlett Johansson, Ellen DeGeneres, Bruce Willis, U2, Tim Tebow, Laurence Fishburne, Bob Saget, John Stamos, David Coulier, David Beckham, Sarah McLachlan, Stephen Colbert, Terry Crews and several more graced our Television Screens this year as we watched the Seattle Seahawks demolish the favoured Denver Broncos.
Here are some of this year’s more memorable TV Spots:
Ellen DeGeneres dresses-up as Goldilocks for newly-launched Beats Music. Watch here.
David Beckham for his H&M Bodywear Spring Collection. Watch here.
A young Girl is told she soon will be a Big Sister, but not without a cost to her Parents. Watch the Cheerios Commercial here.
Stephen Colbert for Wonderful Pistachios. Watch here.
U2 for Bank of America in support of the RED Campaign. You can download their new Single Invincible free on iTunes for 24 hours. Watch here.
Audi delivers the laughs with a fictitious Dober-huahua Breed of Dog. Even Sarah McLachlan joins-in on the fun! Watch here.
Laurence Fishburne takes us back to The Matrix for Kia. Watch here.
He was the first personage with powers to don tights and toss troubles aside. He led the way to a new age, one filled with hope beyond belief, as well as unparalleled despair. Considered to be more than a man it is interesting to note that he is not a man at all. Certainly in appearance, the eye would argue this point vehemently. Nevertheless he is from a far away planet no longer in existence. Torn asunder by wars both natural and otherwise he was forced to flee whilst still a suckling babe. Arriving here on earth he was reared by parents fitting to be called such, for they loved him as their own. Clark they called him, though Kal-El he was in the flesh. Different from everyone else he wrestled a lifetime with this reality. Odd when you think about it. Why would a god worry so? Only a man would raise such a question, and as it has already been stated, Kal-El is neither god nor man. He is a being known by many titles, and yet truly known by very few. He is the embodiment of an ideal so intimidating it borders on offensive. But beautiful it is in fact, and beautiful this movie about the mythos appears to be.
Zack Snyder has never failed when it comes to film. Perhaps financially, but never artistically, and the artist is at last ready to unveil his latest masterpiece. Feast your eyes on the splendour. Man of Steel is coming.

Warner Bros. releases Man of SteelFriday June 14, 2013.
The Stars came out in support of The Colony‘s upcoming release at Scotiabank Theatre last night in Toronto. Our v. own Kevin Zegers and Academy Award Nominee Laurence Fishburne walked the Red Carpet, each embarking on a two-day Press Tour in Toronto to promote the Sci-Fi/Action/Thriller.
Handsome Zegers who confirmed he will be getting married this Summer (we broke news of his engagement first last August!) we all know practically is a Torontonian even though he hails from Woodstock, especially having filmed both The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and The Colony here last year. And even though Fishburne technically isn’t a Torontonian, he pretty much is one honourarily! The Actor has filmed here over the years as has his Wife and Toronto-filmed Suits Star Gina Torres who accompanied him on the Red Carpet last night. More recently, he just wrapped production on upcoming Series Hannibal(premieres April 4, 2013 on City) alongside Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen.
Director/Writer Jeff Renfroe filmed The Colony last Winter between North Bay and Toronto. The Film is set in a post-Apocalyptic World, amidst the next Ice Age. Members of Colony 7 must fight desperately to save themselves after realizing they may be facing a far worse threat than imagined originally.
