Watch The 9 Best Movie Trailers From Super Bowl 50
The big game came and went on February 7th, 2016, some say with a bang, others with a whimper. But one thing we can all agree was exciting on this day, was the multitude of new movie trailers we were blessed with. Super Bowl 50 may not have been for everyone, but these new previews during the game were decidedly trending–and with good reason. We got served with a couple of spots from movies we were expecting, like Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse, but the big surprises came with the offerings from movies like 10 Cloverfield Lane and Jason Bourne.
Also, can we all at least agree that Lady Gaga slayed the nation anthem tonight? Yes. Yes we can.
1. Jason Bourne
Bourne is back baby! And thank god its Matt Damon playing him, because honesty, we love you Jeremy Renner, but you can’t hold a candle to Damon. Jason Bourne will be released July 29th, 2016.
2. 10 Cloverfield Lane
So little is known about the JJ Abrams’ produced 10 Cloverfield Lane, which just adds to the mystique of this thriller. We finally got our look at the movie with this spot, and one thing’s for sure: it definitely has a connection to Abrams original monster flick, Cloverfield, which makes us super pumped for this one. 10 Cloverfield Lane comes out 3/11/2016.
3. Captain America: Civil War
Marvel/Disney’s first of two films is shaping up to be a behemoth of a movie, with a ton of heroes throwing all their might and powers at each other. This newest spot features a startled Tony Stark and a stunned Black Widow, with lots of destruction and stare-downs. Captain America: Civil War releases on May 6, 2016.
4. The Jungle Book
In case you were wondering whether the latest incarnation of The Jungle Book would actually feature talking animals, well, yes it does. And as silly as that sounds, this trailer gives us a deeper, if not all too short, look into the life of Mogli as he traverses the beautiful yet scary landscape of the jungle. The Jungle Book comes out April 15th, 2016.
5. X-Men Apocalypse
Crashing buildings. Destruction. Psylocke. Huge version of Apocalypse. All this plus some more glory shots of the cast doing their super-power thing is on display in the latest spot for Bryan Singer’s assumed swan-song for his X-Men franchise. Catch X-Men: Apocalypse in theaters May 27th, 2016.
6. Independence Day: Resurgence
What goes up… must come down. That was the big one-off line thrown at us from Jeff Goldblum in the Super Bowl commercial for the sequel to Independence Day, and to be honest was kind of lackluster. But hey, if you want more of those explosions and building destruction scenes I described for X-Men, then well, here’s more of that. Enjoy. Independence Day: Resurgence barrels into theaters June 24th, 2016.
7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
OK hear me out: the last Turtles movie sucked, I know, but this trailer for the sequel doesn’t actually suck too bad! And hey, we get to see our newest villain and a franchise favorite in action: KRANG! Feel that? That’s awesome 80’s nostalgia creeping up on you like an old friend waiting to steal your wallet. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows hits theaters June 3rd, 2016.
8. The Secret Life Of Pets
Pets do funny things when you’re not at home, and it’s animated. Thats the pitch for the latest animated flick from Universal Pictures and Illumination, and it’s actually not a bad one. The cute kids movie looks funny enough to keep adults entertained, and kids from wanting to go the the bathrooms too often, so we’re sold. The Secret Life of Pets comes out July 8th, 2016.
Alright Deadpool, we get it. Your movie comes out this week and you had to get one more massive spot in front of the mainstream audience. Does it add anything to what we know about the plot or characters? No, not really. Is it a glorified pandering to a demographic that is probably going to see your movie anyways? Yes, it is. So why did we need this? Because Ryan Reynolds making Deadpool-esque jokes is still surprisingly entertaining as hell. We’ll see you this Friday (2/12/16), Deadpool.
