Dwayne Johnson is really getting ahead of the curve when it comes to Super Bowl spots.  Earlier today his Super Bowl commercial for the “Got Milk?” campaign was released online, and now Summit has unveiled its Super Bowl spot for the upcoming thriller Snitch.  Johnson stars in the film as a father who volunteers to go undercover for the DEA in order to clear his son’s name and get him out of a ten-year prison sentence.  There’s a nice vigilante vibe from this trailer, and it looks as if director Ric Roman Waugh gives Johnson an opportunity to stretch his dramatic chops as well.

Hit the jump to watch the TV spot, and check back here on Collider Sunday night for a round-up of commercials and movie ads from the big game.  Snitch also stars Susan Sarandon, Michael K. Williams, Jon Bernthal, and Benjamin Bratt and opens on February 22nd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Snitch:

In this fast-paced action thriller inspired by true events, Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years.  Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission — risking everything, including his family and his own life.
