With a record $314 million currently spent on synchs globally, there was no shortage of commercials with great music in 2017. But the difference between a good synch and a great synch is a song that sticks with you long after the commercial has aired. And one that might even prompt you to take some sort of action, be it a Shazam tag, a Spotify stream, or even the purchase of a concert ticket.
These 10 synchs represent some of the most unique — and successful — integrations of music the ad world had to offer this year. From

See, Hugh Jackman has wanted to get The Greatest Showman — a film that tells the story of iconic showman P.T. Barnum — made for seven years, and he wasn’t going to let a little thing like cancer stand in his way. Recently, appearing as a guest on The Today Show, the Logan actor recalls the time that he was pitching The Greatest Showman:
“I had a skin cancer and [the doctor] said, ‘You gotta get it out.’ I said, ‘Can we wait until like after the performance?’ He goes, ‘No, it’s cancer.’ So, he put 80 stitches in my nose and everything was fine. And I thought, I’ll turn
The actress was just nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as Gail Getty in the gripping thriller about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III. In the clip above, the actress pleads with her son’s kidnappers to set him free.
“My son Paul must be very frightened right now, I know I’m frightened for him,” she says as Gail. “So to the people who took him: I don’t care why you did this, but I ask, as a mother,
When actors pick roles the old saying goes: one for them, one for you. Unless you’re Joaquin Phoenix. The Gladiator star seems to have dedicated his entire career to fully immersing himself in characters most likely to land him on the Best Actor shortlist. While he may have only been nominated thrice (Gladiator in 2001, Walk The Line in 2006 and The Master in 2013), you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s happened more, having starred in look-at-me awards fodder Her,
Although details are scarce, it’s said that Harrelson is up for the role of a henchman, presumably to Riz Ahmed’s (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) villain, rumoured to be that of Carnage. Given that Venom is taking inspiration from the Lethal Protector story arc, it’s possible that we could see Harrelson with his own symbiote.

Meanwhile, thanks to Atlanta Filming, we also have a look at some new spy photos from the set of the filming featuring Tom Hardy performing a motorcycle stunt as Eddie Brock.
Word on Harrelson's potential involvement with Venom comes from Variety, who report that Harrelson would play a "henchman of sorts," although Sony has yet to officially comment on the casting.
Harrelson would join a cast that includes Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a man who becomes linked with an alien Symbiote that turns him into Venom, one of the ultimate villains in the Spider-Man universe. Although Venom and the Symbiote have a big influence on Spider-Man in the Marvel comic books, this film would take place outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which includes the most recent appearance by the web-slinger in this year's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The post Woody Harrelson In Talks
This report comes just a few days after Tom Hardy confirmed Venom is based on Lethal Protector comics, with the actor adding that this character will be very important for the Marvel Universe, during an appearance at Brazil's Comic-Con Experience last weekend. The actor wouldn't clarify what he meant by "Marvel Universe," if he meant the Spider-Man universe Sony is creating,
Woody Harrelson could be joining Tom Hardy in the the Spider-Man spinoff, Venom...
Woody Harrelson can’t escape the blockbuster franchises. The actor is in talks with Sony about an undisclosed role in the upcoming Venom film, according to THR.
If Harrelson does sign on, he’ll join a cast that already has some major starpower in Tom Hardy, who will play the titular character in the Spider-Man spinoff, as well as Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate. Harrelson would be reuniting with director Ruben Fleischer, who helmed the 2009 hit action-comedy Zombieland, in which Harrelson starred alongside Jesse Eisenberg.
Harrelson has been a magnet for blockbusters lately. He starred in War for the Planet of the Apes, has a role in the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff, and appeared in four Hunger Games films. Recently, he’s received praise for his turn in Oscar contender Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,
Should a deal place, he’ll star opposite Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed, who is attached to play a “major Marvel character” (Carnage, perhaps?) in the 2018 actioner. Ruben Fleischer of Zombieland fame will be calling the shots from behind the lens, and though Sony declined to comment, it’s being reported that Harrelson will portray “a henchmen of sorts.”
Story-wise, the Eddie Brock solo movie has a script from Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, who recently dabbled with rip-roaring adventure thanks to their contribution to the Dwayne Johnson-led yarn, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Not only that, but over the past few days, both Hardy and Fleischer have been dropping story clues, after the latter revealed another comic
Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate are also on board, with Ruben Fleischer directing.
Although character details are sparse, sources say Harrelson will play a henchman of sorts. Sony had no comment on the casting.
Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”) will write the script for “Venom,” with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.
Since his inception in 1988, Venom has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters, making it a top priority for the studio to get the movie off the ground. Venom made his big-screen debut in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where he was portrayed by Topher Grace.
Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and other major characters.
Harrelson has kept
The actor is in talks for an undisclosed role in Venom, the Tom Hardy-led Spider-Man off-shoot from Sony.
Hardy is starring as the popular Marvel Comics antihero with Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate also on the roll call.
If a deal makes, it would mark a reunion for Harrelson with director Ruben Fleischer, who directed the actor in the hit 2009 zombie comedy Zombieland. Venom is already deep into production - filming began in October - and rumors of Harrelson's involvement and swirled on-and-off.
Sony, who had no comment., will release Venom on...
If you’re disappointed that the actor isn’t in the classic black suit in these shots, then you should know that the big reveal of what the movie’s version of the symbiote supervillain looks like won’t occur for a while yet. It’s been confirmed that Venom will be an entirely CGI creation though, so don’t expect to see the creature until, say, the first teaser trailer drops sometime next year.
However, we can still gather something about the approach to the film from these photos. As said above, it looks like this is an action-based scene. But from Hardy’s casual wear,
