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!
Not too long ago, we shared a preview of what to look for in 2009 (see A Taste Of What The ’09 Movie Slate Has In Store). Although we are now a good little chunk into the big 2009, that doesn’t mean that it’s too late for more preview goodness, so when the opportunity presented itself we couldn’t help but do it again. Now the LA Times has their own collection of 2009 preview images, so naturally, we’ve found the newer and more exciting ones to share with you.
Because we used it in the first preview, I’ve included the brand new Where the Wild Things Are image as our main image, so be sure to check that one out as well!
Disney has released a trailer for their new live-action adventure remake, Race To Witch Mountain.
The movie stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a cab driver who finds out some sibling customers of his are a little different. He finds out that the kids are actually alien life-forms who need to get to Witch Mountain to find their ship before some crazy bounty hunter dude finds them. Carla Gugino (Sin City), AnnaSophia Robb (Bridge to Terabithia), Alexander Ludwig (The Seeker: The Dark is Rising), and CiarÃ¡n Hinds (Munich) also star.
Footage shown at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year had a lot of people surprised, which lead to a lot of positive buzz. The trailer looks like fun, but nothing insanely unique or eye-grabbing — it is a remake after all.
