What Movie Trailers Should You Expect at this Year's Super Bowl?

Movie Trailers to Expect at Super Bowl 51 Social

Disney, Universal, and Paramount are among the studios looking to drop new trailers at the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl is known for two things: (1) being the championship game of the NFL season and (2) delivering a bunch of new and/or funny advertisements. There are people who watch just for the ads, which this year are selling for a reported $5 million for a 30-second spot. We've even dedicated entire articles to them. So, it makes sense for movie studios to promote their latest projects at an event that will be watched by over 100 million people.

This year, we know at least three studios have purchased time at the "Big Game." Disney, Universal, and Paramount have all confirmed to Variety that they will run trailers during the game. As for the movies to look out for? Only Paramount named names. Both Ghost in the Shell and Transformers: The Last Knight are scheduled to be showcased during the event. The rest have been left up to us to figure out.

Let's start with Disney. It has so many big-name movies coming out that naming them all could take up a whole paragraph. But I'm going to guess that the trailer we'll see will be for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. We've only gotten a teaser up to this point, and this is the sort of tentpole franchise you need to show at an event like this. We haven't even seen Jack Sparrow yet.

Moving on to Universal, the next two projects it has for release are Fifty Shades Darker and The Great Wall - but we've seen multiple trailers for both of these, and we've seen them for months. My guess? The Fate of the Furious. We got one so far, but the Super Bowl would be the place to debut a second one.

We'll all find out this Sunday, February 5, when the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons at Super Bowl LI. What trailers are you hoping to see?

For me, that's an indication that there is not enough overlap between these people targeted by those trailers and those actually caring about the Super Bowl.

This is the one where they score runs right? SPORTSBALL!

Eight more years til Superbowl LIX.

Butz.

50 Shades Darker - The Great Wall - The Fate of the Furious

I know little about these, but they do appear like topical commentary when together like that.
I bet you're looking forward to reviewing the first title. ;)

hang on......isn't the great wall in cinemas already? dont they normally show trailers for movies that are a bit away?

.....star wars anyone? ah.....maybe its just to soon.

I'm mostly just surprised the sword in the Transformers poster isn't reticulated with a scale motif and random junk hanging from it.

I'm only here for the halftime show memes.

I'm hoping for a new Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer. Not a movie, you say? Don't care. I'm way more excited for the video games of 2017 than the films. (OK, I really want to see Ghost in the Shell. As for the rest... I can't really work up any enthusiasm.)

I know people hate them, I know they're bad, but I kinda want to see the next Transformers. I really fucking like robots. Especially when they punch and shoot each other.

Wait, I thought 50 Shades was a relative flop...why the fuck are they making another one?

I dunno. Atlas Shrugged got 3 movies, which was about 5 too many.

Are we really trying to hype advertisements? How far down the rabbit hole is this gonna go.

Anything besides another puppymonkeybaby abomination.

Thanks to y'all who corrected the Arizona/Atlanta thing. Dunno how I confused those - and I'm actually looking forward to it!

$571 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.

Coulda sworn I heard it didn't do very well, but I stand corrected.

..............still seems like a waste to make a movie series based on books that were literally conceived as Twilight fan-fic. :P

...and thanks for bringing that memory back.

Logan. The new trailer
Give me that or maybe Deadpool 2, featuring CABLE and I'm happy.
