Stephen Amell Christopher Daniels All In

Stephen Amell is no stranger to the world of professional wrestling. Back in the summer of 2015, Amell made a TV appearance on the WWE’s Monday Night Raw show and was harassed by Cody Rhodes playing his Stardust character. This led to the Arrow star wrestling his first match, a tag team encounter with WWE star Neville against Stardust and King Wade Barrett at SummerSlam. Now almost three years later, Amell is ready for his first singles wrestling match ever, at an event co-created by his old nemesis… Cody Rhodes.

Super Bowl LII 2018 banner

Sunday night saw the return of the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles during Super Bowl LII at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN, and as usual, there were plenty of interesting and highly anticipated commercials that pertained to movies and television that aired during the Big Game as well as during the pre-Game, Halftime, and post-Game shows. We covered the movie TV spots and trailers throughout the evening (watch them all here), but there was a lot more noteworthy ads that aired.

So we’ve collected a bunch of these Super Bowl ads here below for your enjoyment, especially those clever and celebrity-filled product commercials. Continue reading for the Best Of The Super Bowl Ads 2018: Movies, TV, Celebrities.

Wrestlemania III Header

This is the biggest week of the year for wrestling fans as Vince McMahon’s titan of a company, WWE hosts its 33rd annual supershow, WrestleMania from Orlando, Florida. While I know Geeks of Doom doesn’t always cover wrestling; (I’d quit my job and write full time if it did), one cannot deny the crossover appeal of pro wrestling, pop culture, and geek-based entertainment.

This is an industry that has spawned its own film company, and created some of the biggest stars in the world. Look no further than the highest grossing star in Hollywood right now, Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock. The Rock headlined wrestling’s Super Bowl 5 times and featured in some of the events greatest matches. Last year in Dallas, Texas at Cowboys Stadium, they set an indoor attendance record with 100,000 packed in, and wouldn’t you know who showed up with a flamethrower to commemorate the event… it was The Rock.

Super Bowl LI logo 2017

Sunday night saw the Atlanta Falcons and the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots face off during Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, and as usual, there were plenty of interesting and highly anticipated commercials that pertained to movies and television that aired during the Big Game as well as during the pre-Game, Halftime, and post-Game shows that we covered throughout the evening.

So we’ve collected a bunch of these Super Bowl ads here below for your enjoyment, since there was plenty of new TV and movie footage revealed, and of course, those clever and celebrity-filled product commercials. Not every commercial that aired is included, as some didn’t pertain to our type of entertainment and some I just didn’t enjoy or care about. Instead, I’ve embedded most of the movie and TV spots, along with my favorites from all those car, beer, and soda-type adverts, most of which feature celebrities.

Super Bowl 50 logo

This year marked the 50th Super Bowl game, and while the lead-up to this event wasn’t as exciting as last year (which, amongst other things, saw the epic charity face-off between Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, aka Star-Lord and Captain America), there was, as usual, plenty of interesting and highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials that pertained to movies and television that were aired during the Big Game as well as during the pre-Game, Halftime, and post-Game shows that we covered throughout Sunday evening.

But, there’s still a lot more ad offerings that we didn’t get to post from Super Bowl 50 — which saw the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos go up against Carolina Panthers (the team Michael Oher, whose life was depicted in The Blind Side, plays for) in Santa Clara, CA, at Levi’s Stadium, which the home of the San Francisco 49ers. So we’ve collected a bunch of these Super Bowl ads here below for your enjoyment, since there was plenty of new TV and movie footage revealed, and of course, those clever and celebrity-filled product commercials.

Not every commercial is included, as some didn’t pertain to our type of entertainment and some I just didn’t enjoy or care about. Instead, I’ve embedded most of the movie and TV spots, along with my favorites from all those car and soda-type adverts, most of which feature celebrities.

The Mountain From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Spars With UFC Star Conor McGregor (Video)

Hafthor Bjornsson in Game of Thrones

Hafthór Björnsson became famous for playing Ser Gregor Clegane, “The Mountain That Rides,” on season four of HBO’s Game of Thrones—the third actor to play the role (previously played by Conan Stevens in season one and Ian Whyte in season two)—culminating in an epic battle to the death with Prince Oberyn Martell, “The Red Viper.” But while the character he plays on Thrones is an awful beast of a man, it’s what he’s done off the small screen that has truly endeared him to the masses such as breaking 1,000-year-old viking weightlifting records while dominating strongman competitions or just being plain awesome for the kids.

Now Hafthor is taking on one of the UFC’s up and coming superstars, current interim Featherweight division titleholder Conor McGregor. The two sparred together recently, and you can see the video of their session below.

‘Back To The Future II’s Chicago Cubs 2015 World Series Connection

Back to the Future Part II Grays Sports Almanac

“Wish I could go back to the beginning of the season… put some money on the Cubbies!”

This was the line that prompted Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) to buy Grays Sports Almanac in the future year 2015 at the beginning of Robert Zemeckis’ 1989 sequel Back to the Future Part II. Marty’s plan is to use the book to gamble on the winners, and never lose…. of course anyone who has seen BTTF2 knows old Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson) steals the book and gives it to his high school aged self causing the timeline to skew and Biff to become a Trump-esque villain. All of this begins back with the above quote. The Chicago Cubs have been Major League Baseball’s loveable losers for over a century. Their last World Series win came in 1908… before World War I, while Roosevelt was President (Cough, Teddy), 5 years before the Income Tax, and twelve years before women had the vote!

All this swirls together magically this week, as if this week holds significance on a space-time continuum. Wednesday, October 21 is the date in BTTF2 when Marty goes to future 2015. In actual 2015, the date coincides with the Cubs playing Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the New York Mets in Wrigley Field in Chi-Town. The funny thing is, screenwriter Bob Gale, a fan of the rival St. Louis Cardinals, picked the Cubs for the title victory in futuristic 2015, because what would shock Marty more than the impossible happening! For those using this as an omen of certain victory for the Cubs, BTTF2 said they’d beat Miami. In 1989, there was no baseball team in Florida. By 1993, there were two, with the Florida Marlins rechristening themselves the Miami Marlins in 2012.
