Super Bowling For Trailers!

by |

It's almost here -- the one time of year when pigskin-loving jocks and ravenous movie fans come together to salivate over 30-second blocks of pure advertising: Super Bowl Sunday.

Here at RT we'll be working overtime during Super Bowl XL (that's 40, not extra large) to bring you a play-by-play of the highly anticipated movie trailers peppered among the talking frogs, soccer-playing Clydesdales, and The Twins of 2006! Check back for updates at halftime and after the game, and let us know which trailers (and other multi-million dollar ads) you enjoyed the most...

Super Bowl Trailer Watch Update:

In between trips to the fridge for beer and snacks, you may have glimpsed the following trailers -- but did they convince you to run to your local cineplex when they hit theaters?

At a rumored average price of $2.6 million per spot, the studios sure hope so.

Post your thoughts on the 2006 Super Bowl: million-dollar trailers, Mick Jagger (does he still rock at age 90?), Jerome Bettis (is retirement on the horizon for The Bus?), the Super Bowl itself (is it, in fact, still Super??)

GoDaddy.whatever it is, FedEx delivery cavemen, Budweiser's secret revolving beer fridge, Godzilla gives Mechaman a Hummer, Burger King's dancing whopper orgy -- does anyone else miss the talking frogs??
