Movie trailers showing during the Super Bowl

by Joey Paur

Look, I like sports as much as the next guy but I like movies and video games more. I would much rather play Madden 09 than watch the actually game. I'm weird like that. But there are two reasons I like to watch the Super Bowl: One, It is a great opportunity to get together with your friends and screw around and get rowdy. Two, I love watching the Super Bowl commercials most importantly the movie trailers that will be premiered that night. It may be the only time during the year where I actually look forward the the commercial break. It looks like this year there are going to be a ton of movie trailers that will be shown. Some are for movies we have seen for other it will be a first time de-virginizing experience.

So Here they are the confirmed:

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" - Finally!

"Star Trek" - I hope it is a new cut.

"G.I. Joe" - This will make or break it for me.

"Angels & Demons" - I would like to see more than a teaser trailer.

"Monsters vs. Aliens" - This will be shown in 3D.

"Land of the Lost" - I'm tired of Will Ferrell.

"The Fast and the Furious 4" - So far it looks like the best F and the F movie so far.

Disney is also planning to use the game to raise the profile for Pixar's next toon, "Up," while a "Wolverine" spot is likely from Fox.

As of Thursday, Fox had yet to buy any time during the game. Should it do so at the last minute, "Wolverine," "Night at the Museum 2" and "Ice Age" are the pics it's most likely to promote.

Disney is remaining tight-lipped about its Super Bowl strategy, but it wouldn't be surprising if it buys time for Dwayne Johnson starrer "Race to Witch Mountain" and Jerry Bruckheimer’s "G-Force."

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. hasn't bought a spot and may not at all, even with "Terminator Salvation," "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and "Watchmen" — pics that would all appeal to the Super Bowl crowd — on its upcoming release sked.

Maybe they will show the english version of the Japanese 'Watchmen trailer'.

So what are you excited to see?
