Super Bowl Movie Ad Bonanza: Robots And Superheroes

Super Bowl ads, BYOG (Bring Your Own Guacamole) If you're watching tonight's Super Bowl, you may have noticed a few "commercial breaks," which are interruptions in the football game designed to sell products, which in turn pays for the game's being broadcast on television. This system of "TV advertising" has long gone both unnoticed and unremarked upon by Super Bowl viewers. During these breaks, there were several commercials advertising some big movies, including one for Cowboys & Aliens. Anyway, here are some Super Bowl ads for Thor, Captain America, and Transformers 3. Be sure to buy lots of concessions when you go see these movies in the theater as a result of seeing them here - the studios spent a lot of money on these:

See New 'Cowboys & Aliens' Super Bowl Ad Without Having To Watch Super Bowl

I just saved you, like, 7 hours. One of the main issues I have with the Super Bowl is the lack of cowboys, aliens, laser guns, and Harrison Ford. So I had mixed emotions about the prospect of a new Cowboys & Aliens Super Bowl spot - on the one hand, yeah, it probably has all those things. On the other hand, I'd have to sit through untold hours of lame beer ads, awful musical performances from senior citizens, and a few minutes of football in order to see it. Imagine my relief when I saw the ad appearing on the internet! And in the spirit of friendship, I now present the ad to you as well. Think about it - I just saved you, like, 7 hours. What are you going to do with it? I'm gonna watch the Super Bowl! (via SlashFilm)


The SJ Show: Super Bowl Movie Trailers 2013!

Plus, Hal chats with the stars of 'Identity Thief'. Hal takes a moment from gorging himself on hot wings and s'mores (don't ask) to dissect all the big Super Bowl movie trailers -- Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Fast and the Furious 6 and World War Z -- and rate them on a scale of Very Good to Oz, The Great And Powerful. THEN he meets up with Melissa McCarthy, Jason Bateman, T.I. and Genesis Rodriquez to discuss their new movie, Identity Thief, and get their best Osama bin Laden impressions.


Happy Super Bowl. Here's a 'Terminator: Genisys' Trailer

Yup, he says, "I'll be back." Since Super Bowl ads are now considered entertainment, much to marketers' delight, companies are leaking them earlier and earlier. This Terminator: Genisys trailer, to run on Sunday's game, is no exception. It's a Super Bowl ad that runs before the Super Bowl. Which I guess just makes it an ad. Whatever. It's Terminator, and I think we're all interested to see if we can ignore the past two and get back to the greatness of 1 and 2. From the looks of this...Can we? (Deadline)


'Divergent' Sequel 'Insurgent' Gets A Super Bowl Trailer, Too

It's a great day for the suffix "-gent" everywhere. Without knowing a damn thing about Divergent or the upcoming Insurgent, I've tasked myself with relaying to you news of a new trailer for the latter. It will air during the Super Bowl, which I DO know a lot about. Makes me wish this was a trailer for the Super Bowl. Alas. Let me limp my way through this: Young adult literary adaptation Divergent went on to gross a damn good $150 million, which means, yeah, it's getting a sequel. I mean, it had already been written. Enter Insurgent, the follow-up starring Kate Winslet and Shailene Woodley. It will be hitting theaters on March 20th, also in 3D, which seems kind of quaint these days.


Most Importantly, The Super Bowl Gave Us A Trailer For The 'Minions' Movie

The Super Bowl offers a little bit of something for everyone. In case you need a refreshing break from the gravity of the NFL season with their scandals, and injuries, and violence, Dreamworks had you covered last night with a trailer for the upcoming Minions movie, spun-off from the adorable little yellow blobs from Despicable Me during the Super Bowl.  You might not be in the right demographic here, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the cuteness of it all. If nothing else, it teaches us that the Minions don't have genitals, which makes me wonder how they reproduce. I'm sure there's a whole dark corner of the Internet dedicated to entertaining that question, so I'll just retract it, and try to think happier, purer thoughts.


Watch A Mutant Super Bowl As One Man Plays God In 'Breaking Madden'

He's drunk with power! You probably don't know who Jon Bois is, but he's doing God's work so you best educate yourself. He's a writer for SB Nation, a sports fan site, and for the second year, he's Breaking Madden. You probably don't know what that means, so let's discuss. The video game Madden has become pretty robust, and you can sort of create your own team over a simulated season. What Jon Bois did is create a team of 7-foot, 400 lb. Patriots, and a diminutive, talentless Seahawks. The result is amazing and you should watch. If only the real Super Bowl was this entertaining...


Here's A Super Weird Old Spice Commercial

If you like smelling good and watching weirdo shit, have we got a product for you. Old Spice made a name for themselves in the viral marketing world by putting that buff guy whose name nobody remembers on a horse. They're at it again and ratcheting up the weirdness. This time they deliver this sad song of lament from mothers covertly popping out of the ether like the ghosts in The Grudge to watch as their sons grow into men who put their weenies in young ladies. And it's really good! I've got to admire the gumption over at Old Spice. I love their approach: "Hey, here's something strange and a little scary and haunting. Now rub our product on your armpits."


Skip The Super Bowl Preshow And Watch 'The Hunger Games' Trailer Now

Spend that time wrapping bacon around things. Up until this point we've seen very little of the actual games featured in The Hunger Games. That all changes with this second trailer set to premiere during the Super Bowl preshow this Sunday. But because no one really pays much attention to that, it's here early online for us all to obsess over. Here we see the softer side of the Girl On Fire as she interacts with her loved ones back in the Seam, and less of the girl who shoots other kids in the head with arrows. Which isn't to say we don't see more of the Games. There are a few glimpses here and there, as well as an emphasis on the Mockingjay pin. No tracker jackers to share just yet. But let's assume they'll be fully rendered by the time the film opens on March 23rd.
