Ah yes, the Super Bowl, that time of the year where we gather ’round the television, more excited to watch the commercials than the game itself. Variety has ran an early report confirming a few of the new trailers we're going to see this year. Airing on February 1st on NBC, Super Bowl XLIII will feature trailers for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Star Trek, G.I. Joe, Monsters vs Aliens, Angels & Demons, Land of the Lost, Fast and Furious, Pixar's Up, and Wolverine. It's also likely we'll see trailers for Night at the Museum 2, Ice Age 3, Race to Witch Mountain, G-Force, and maybe even Terminator Salvation.
Duo to the rough economy, apparently NBC had to lower their prices (originally $3 million for 30 seconds) last minute in order to make sure they filled all the slots. That's why there seems to be an abundance of movie trailers this year, as the studios swept in last minute and bought up the premium spots. For those excited for Transformers 2, the Super Bowl is the first time we'll see any real footage, which should make for an exciting debut. And as we have all already heard, the 90 second Monsters vs Aliens trailer will be shown in 3-D. More than 125 million pairs of 3-D glasses are being distributed as part of the promo.
Obviously we suggest you tune in to the Super Bowl on February 1st to catch all these new trailers live with everyone else. And afterwards, you'll be able to find all of them available again right here on FS.net!
