This year, ahead of the game, major figures in the entertainment industry like actors David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston and director Martin Scorsese have already gotten in on the fun with promos for Uber Eats and Squarespace. But we’re talking about promoting the highly-anticipated movies about to make their debut.
If you’re one of those people who prefer watching the Super Bowl for the ads, we’re rounding up all the trailers premiering during tonights big sports ball fest.
A Quiet Place: Day One
Get ready to sh*t your pants all over again with the prequel to Jon Krasinski’s A Quiet Place. We’ve already had the sequel where Emily Blunt’s character takes on even more deadly aliens that respond to noise. And now, the quietest movie franchise is taking us back to where it all began, starring Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn. A Quiet Place: Day One’s release date is June 28.
Despicable Me 4
In a trailer that cleverly mocks AI-generated images, we get to see that the minions are once again up to no good. For the fourth installment — yes, there are soon to be four Despicable Me movies — Will Ferrell joins the cast as Gru’s arch nemesis, Maxime Le Mal. Despicable Me 4 premiers Jul. 3.
Deadpool and Wolverine
Ryan Reynolds is at it again. The Deadpool and Wolverine trailer, which premiered right after the coin toss, heavily features Matthew MacFayden who joins the cast seemingly as a TVA agent. We don’t know much else beyond that, but Wolverine’s shadow at the end means Logan will be sinking his claws into the adventure – and seemingly Deadpool. Deadpool and Wolverine will be in theaters on Jul. 26.
Ariana Grande and Cynthia Arivo are bringing the Broadway musical to the silver screen. We can’t believe it’s taken this long, but maybe it’s worth the wait, because the Wicked trailer has some snazzy special effects and epic scenes that’s deserving of the famed witches defying gravity. Part one of Wicked comes out on Thanksgiving Day.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes
The ape empire has a tyrannical new leader. The latest installment of the Planet of the Apes series shows apes and humans pitted against each other like never before. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will be in theaters on May 10.
