Last night (or earlier this morning if you’re a bad ass with insomnia and 20 cans of Red Bull), some sporting event or other went down in the United States of A: The Super Bowl. The game consisted of a giant egg being tossed around and kicked on occasion…probably. Then Lady Gaga and Beyoncé sang at some point. But none of that matters. Why?
Because during the commercials – adverts, to you and me – every big film in the WORLD released a new trailer or TV spot that, frankly, overshadowed the sporting spectacle. Us Brits love a good advert on the best of days, but when they’re this mind-blowingly big time, putting the kettle on can wait.
The Super Bowl Trailers
Enough of me yapping on, you came here for unadulterated movie-porn. The most unexpected of the trailers we were treated to was that of a new Bourne film, which you can see above. The return of Matt Damon is a welcome sight – sorry Hawkeye…
On the topic of Hawkeye, Captain America: Civil War returned to tickle our comic book backside (and yes, our mate Jeremy appears at 24 seconds in, so don’t fret). Which side are you on?!
Neither side? That’s okay, as Iron Man and Cap weren’t the only superheroes to grace us with their presence; we also got a glimpse of X-Men: Apocalypse and even more Deadpool (can there ever be too much Deadpool?).
And if, like my nan, you’ve had enough of all this comic book shit surging onto the silver screen, there were also trailers for Independence Day: Resurgence – Welcome to Earth! – and 10 Cloverfield Lane, the sequel no-one exactly wanted but no-one is exactly complaining about.
Lastly but not leastly, we were treated to The Jungle Book which I’m still not convinced won’t ruin my entire childhood – but the teaser is kinda cool. One film that will be ruining childhoods everywhere? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle: Out of the Shadows… A sequel? Really?? Who went to see the first one?! OWN UP!!![interaction id=”56b873f6180dad85056a4977″]
