Ah, the Super Bowl. An event like no other. It’s uniqueness lies in the fact that you don’t really even have to care about the teams that are playing because there’s so much more to savor. Whether it be those silly Budweiser ads, the whacked-out, over the top halftime shows that typically star musical icons many presumed dead; or, most importantly, the movie trailers.
In fact, since my Seahawks were eliminated in the Super Bowl way back in 2005 (and seeing as it’ll probably be the Steelers vs. Green Bay for XLV … yawn), the only reason I’ve watched the program is to get a sneak peak at the latest masterpieces/disasters that Hollywood has in store for us. Speaking of which, we now have our hands on this year’s locked-in Super Bowl ads, all of which are enough to get me stoked for the big day when I take into consideration the hefty lineup of films set to debut new footage.
Among those included are Paramount’s Super 8 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. For the complete list, as well as a look at the trailers that will debut during the pre-game festivities, hit the jump.
