Super 8, Captain America and more: Assessing the Super Bowl movie teasers
As promised, Super Bowl LXV provided the perfect platform for hyping a number of high profile movies, including "Super 8," "Captain America," "Cowboys & Aliens," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and others.
So which blockbuster commercial looked the most promising? Let's take a look at a few, then rank them via a convenient online poll.
At the risk of influencing your vote, I must state the following: the trailer for "Super 8" -- which finally showed us an eensy bit more footage from J.J. Abrams Spielbergian epic, yet somehow managed to reveal nothing about the extra-terrestrially focused plot -- made me even more tingly with anticipation for that June 10 release. And based on Internet reaction, I was not alone.
The trailer for "Captain America" -- which gave us a glimpse at Chris Evans's transformation from soldier Steve Rogers to engineered superhero -- also amped up my curiosity a bit.
But the trailer for "Thor," another Marvel title, was a little generic.
"Cowboys & Aliens" made good on its title's promise to show us both cowboys, as well as aliens.
Of the two Johnny Depp projects hyped during the big game -- "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"...
... and "Rango," I found myself more excited about the animated Western that stars a chameleon.
The "Kung Fu Panda 2" trailer made my son giggie. So I guess that counts as a mission accomplished.
There were massive amounts of explosions in the preview of "Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon." Which was a *huge* surprise.
And "Drive Angry" was, um, non-descript.
A few clips have been left out, but these are more or less biggies. So which one was the best? Rank them below.
