Other than the big game and the Super Bowl commercials Sunday, we’re excited for new movie trailers.
Five of the big studios will show televised spots for new spring and summer films.
A 30-second spot to advertise during the game costs around $US4 million this year. With that in mind, most studios are putting out two TV spots.
Missing from the line up this year are Warner Bros. and Fox who won’t promote their movies during the big game.
Perhaps the biggest reveal will be the first footage from the next “Transformers” sequel.
Between the big game, Bruno Mars’ half-time show, and the plethora of ads, here’s what trailers you can expect to see:
“Need for Speed”
Release Date: March 2014
Disney has been releasing a lot of TV spots and behind-the-scenes featurettes for the video game adaptation lately. “Breaking Bad” fans will see Aaron Paul racing fast cars.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Yahoo! just debuted three new posters for the “Captain America” sequel starring Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. A new trailer should be revealed tomorrow.
