It’s usually the biggest TV day of the year: Super Bowl Sunday. If you’re a sports fan, you’re excited about the game, and if you hate sports, you still watch to see the legendary commercial lineup in hopes of seeing some marketing brilliance.
Among all of these commercials each year, we also get some peeks at the year’s biggest upcoming movies and this year is no slouch. In fact, this may just be the BIGGEST Super Bowl for movie previews that we’ve ever seen.
Personally, I’m a huge sports fan, so I’m usually watching the big game… but this year is a pretty boring match-up, so it’s fitting that the telecast will be riddled with huge movie peeks.
We’ve already posted the one for the new Star Trek preview, but here you can see the Super Bowl spots for massive summer fare such as: Disney’s Up!, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, The Year One, Race to Witch Mountain, Land of the Lost, and yes, oh yes… Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Venture to the other side for all of the TV spot video goodness!
Up! This isn’t much different then the trailer that we’ve seen already, but there is a little bit more to it at the end. Up! tells the story of an elderly man who gets sick of it all and uses a plethora of balloons to fly himself and his whole house far, far away.
Race to Witch Mountain Another one that’s mostly similar to what we’ve seen already, but again, there’s a little more added on and a fun little cameo right at the beginning, so it’s worth including. Race to Witch Mountain is about a cab driver who’s trying to get a couple young kids — who happen to be super-powerful alien beings — back to their ship.
The Year One One of the new ones from the world of Judd Apatow. The Year One stars Jack Black and Michael Cera as hunter gatherers who are exiled from their tribe and have to go off on their own. While on their adventure through ancient times, they meet a bunch of biblical figures and silliness is sure to ensue.
Land of the Lost The newest Will Ferrell movie, Land of the Lost is a brand new version of the old 70s TV show where a Palaeontologist, his assistant, and a tour guide get lost in an unknown land which is inhabited by dinosaurs and weird lizard people things.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra Another first video; this time it’s for the much-talked about new toy-based movie, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Surely with hopes of beginning a new franchise, this movie with be an origins story, showing the start and evolution of the Cobra organization and G.I. Joe’s fight to stop them.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Finally, the absolute Holy Grail of Super Bowl movie previews, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It seems a lot of the YouTube versions are being pulled off by Paramount, which is odd, and most of them are only 31 seconds, while the full one seems to be about a minute long. I was able to find a full one, so get at it while you still can, JUST in case!
Angels & Demons There’s not too much hype for this prequel to the The Da Vinci code, but in this film director Ron Howard returns to direct a slimmer trimmer Tom Hanks as code cracker Robert Langdon in this Illuminati tale.
