Super Bowl time is a time of rejoicing for many sports fans. But even if you don’t happen to be a football aficionado, you can still get some pleasure from the Super Bowl, for it is also the time when marketing companies go out of their way to promote anything and everything. Further, this year the commercial barrage is going to show off some of the big-budget movie blockbusters that will be hitting during 2014. So which trailers can we expect, you ask? Scroll down to find out.
This year there are three trailers of note:
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Amazing Spider-Man 2
Transformers: Age of Extinction
There are also a few rumors about some other trailers that may or may not show up:
Expendables 3 – A slot has been purchased by Lionsgate, but no official confirmation on which movie they’ll be showing off.
X-Men: Days of Future Past – Fox tends to keep things on the down-low when it comes to announcing their purchased slots. But 20th Century Fox + Fox TV = pretty good chances.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – Made by Fox, see reasons for rumor in above entry.
And while the first two (officially announced) flicks have already been advertising some, we’ll probably end up seeing way more trailer-y goodness than has been broadcast thus far. As far as the new Transformers movie, this will be the first showing of anything from the latest Michael Bay production. So if you’re a fan of the franchise, this is your chance to see whether Bay finally got it right this time.
The Super Bowl will be showing on Fox this Sunday @5:30 (Central). Someone told me it’s the Seahawks and the Broncos or something like that. Fk, I dunno, I’m just here for the adverts.
Thanks to blastr for the heads-up.
