Super Bowling For Trailers!

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.

HALF TIME UPDATE - In broadcast order:

Click, (Adam Sandler, Kate Beckinsale)?view it here.


16 Blocks (Bruce Willis, Mos Def)...view it here.


V For Vendetta (Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving)...view it here.


Cars (Paul Newman, Owen Wilson)...view it here.


Mission Impossible: III (Tom Cruise)...view it here.


The Shaggy Dog ( Tim Allen, Kristin Davis)...view it here.


Poseidon (Josh Lucas)...view it here.


POST GAME UPDATE:


Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest
(Johnny Depp)....trailer here.

Running Scared (Paul Walker, Chazz Palminteri)...trailer here.


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??

Well, I already know they are going to show trailers for Pirates 2, Mission Impossible 3, and Cars. I assume those will be the top 3 trailers of the night, as well as the 3 biggest movies of the summer.


...and I can't wait to see them all!

I see them gearing for the trickle down effects of Superman Returns. One week seperates these guys. Got to give it to Supey as the film to beat this year.

yeah, Superman will be a big movie. I did somewhat forget about that one. If there is a Superbowl spot for it, I REALLY hope it is more exciting than the yawn-inducing teaser trailer.

X3 may have a superbowl spot as well.
I still stand by my thoughts of the 3 big movies for the summer.

[b]1st Trailer - 16 Blocks[/b]
An action thriller starring Bruce Willis. Saw this trailer before though. It looks ok, not much better than Hostage.

[b]2nd Trailer - V for Vendetta[/b]
Looks pretty good. It doesn't show much. It's not much different from the ones already out on the web either.

[b]3rd Trailer - Cars[/b]
Pretty short. This one shows more racing action, but I liked one of the older ones with more views of the landscapes.

This trailer looks great, but we've seen this before on the web.

Good idea with the promo-blog, guys! I'm also hoping we get a few movie ads that we haven't seen before. So far ... not much.

[b]5th Trailer - Poseidon[/b]
Definitely ooks like something in Wolfgang Peterson's alley - a mix of Titanic and The Perfect Storm. But again, it's available online.

Yeah, you missed "The Shaggy Dog," but I thought you were doing us a favor by not reporting it. :)

A shorter, hurried version of an existing trailer. Again, nothing new.

I missed a trailer for a racing movie...
