Here Are All the Movie Trailers That Premiered During the Super Bowl

Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Rams claimed victory at the Super Bowl in Los Angeles, California, featuring a Los Angeles halftime show. And Hollywood, never one to be left out of an LA party, joined in the fun by dumping a metric ton of movie trailers throughout the game. You probably caught most of them but in many cases, the TV spot itself was quite a bit shorter than the full trailer that dropped online about the same time. Now you can explore the full previews in their unedited glory.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness

Benedict Cumberbatch’s erstwhile Sorcerer Supreme is in hot water following the events of several recent MCU projects and this leads to what looks like a very wild ride through time, space and franchises. Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rachel McAdams are back , and eagle-eared comic book fans have singled out a voice in this trailer that sure sounds like a certain someone from a bygone era of superhero movies. We can’t confirm or deny any rumors here but if anyone could pull something like this off, it’s Sam Raimi.

Moon Knight

From a very different corner of the MCU comes Moon Knight, the Disney+ series starring no less an A-lister than former Blinking Underdogs frontman Oscar Isaac himself. The series is a little more grounded than Doctor Strange’s interdimensional hijinks but no less weird or curious about the supernatural. Oh, and Ethan Hawke shows up as a long-haired villain. Never a bad thing.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

Feast your eyes on the most expensive TV show in history. Amazon is ready to usher you back to Middle-Earth, eons before Bilbo happened upon the Ring of Power. Weirdly, this is the one fight in which Jeff Bezos might conceivably be considered an underdog, since all the money in the world is no match for Tolkien’s fandom, maybe the most academic and fiercely protective of all time. Can The Rings of Power overcome its Game of Thrones knockoff energy and ascend to the heights of its ravishing source material? Time will tell.

Jurassic World Dominion

We already covered this last week, but the Super Bowl spot has a slightly different edit so, for the sake of completion, here’s Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard uniting with the dino-team of yesteryear: Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill and Laura Dern herself. Quick question, where does the colon go in this title? Is it Jurassic World: Dominion or Jurassic: World Dominion? The latter makes more sense for keeping the pattern going, but it seems like it’s going for “World Dominion.” The IMDb page has no colons, which also doesn’t make a lot of sense. The people who titled it were so preoccupied with whether they could that they never stopped to ask if they should.

NOPE

The four little words every movie fan longs to hear: “From director Jordan Peele.” The man behind Get Out and Us is back with NOPE, which is a …what is it exactly? The clues seem to point to some sort of UFO yarn, but always count on Peele to zag when you think he’s going to zig. This one also stars Keke Palmer, Daniel Kaluuya, Steven Yeun and Barbie Ferriera. Can’t wait.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Despite one of the craziest and most entertaining pre-production stories in recent memory thanks to the universal disdain for Sonic’s character design, the first entry was a surprising amount of fun, largely thanks to Jim Carrey getting back to his deranged roots. The sequel doesn’t have the highest bar to clear but it’s well on its way anyway, thanks to Idris Elba’s wildly overqualified voice work for Knuckles. Is the red talking echidna guy supposed to sound this handsome?

The Lost City

Franchise films and spooky stories not really your bag? Paramount is betting big on reviving the long lost romantic adventure comedy genre with The Lost City, which stars Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock on the run from Daniel Radcliffe, and if that doesn’t sound like enough fun, Brad Pitt is here too. Haters will say it looks a lot like Romancing the Stone but, well, since when is that a bad thing?

DC Movies, Generally

Instead of cutting individual trailers for its slate of upcoming superheroics, DC opted for a sizzle reel of all its upcoming movies, from The Batman to The Flash to Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. You can catch glimpses of them all here, and even a little bit of Dwayne Johnson’s superhero turn as Black Adam. Fun fact: Johnson was first cast as Black Adam way back in 2007. For context, Tobey Maguire was still Spider-Man at the time.

Lightyear

Now that everyone’s clear on the premise here (It’s not a Toy Story movie starring Buzz Lightyear. It’s an action/sci-fi movie starring Buzz Lightyear that the toys in the Toy Story universe are based on.), we can consider the movie itself, which looks pretty rad. This sort of meta, intra-universe concept would elicit eye rolls from almost any other studio, but never bet against Pixar finding a way to make a weird premise work.
