The Super Bowl is a time for football, commercials and above all else, trailers for movies coming up this year. Let’s break down each trailer shown during the Big Game.
Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness
This one should not come as a surprise. The big game and Marvel are a match made in marketing heaven. What was shown was anything but heaven for Dr. Strange. During the trailer, we witness the fallout of Strange’s actions in “Spider-Man No Way Home,” opening the doorway to the Multiverse. As Wanda said during the trailer, “Viz had his theories. He believed it was dangerous.”
How right Vision was. During the trailer, we see our beloved doctor of the mystic arts plagued with nightmares of a multitude of Multiverse horrors, facing the Illuminati court for his crimes and fighting creatures that will surely give fans nightmares. We see more of returning characters like Wong, Mordo and Wanda Maximoff, who seems to be embracing her dark Scarlet Witch alter ego prophesied in “WandaVision.”
She will not be the only possible antagonist Strange will have to face, as more was revealed with Strange’s evil multiverse counterpart, culminating in a final shot that invokes Strange Supreme flashbacks from What If?
“Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness” is set to hit theaters May 6.
The Lost City
Adventure comedies seem to be back on the rise recently. “Red Notice,” “Free Guy” and the “Jumanji” series just to name a few. The latest one to join the crew, “The Lost City,” unveiled a 30-second commercial spot filled with laughs, action and stars galore.
Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock shine as bumbling wannabe adventurers looking for a lost treasure, of course audiences will love it.
There is also a moment where Daniel Radcliffe’s billionaire villain uses Tatum and Bullock’s characters to find that treasure. The biggest surprise was saved for last, as Brad Pitt showed up to save Bullock’s character.
When asked how Pitt’s character looks so good, he confidently replied, “My dad was a weatherman.”
Audiences will see how long those looks will last and if the star duo can find the loot when The Lost City unveils itself March 25.
Jurassic World Dominion
Last time the “Jurassic World” franchise was shown on the big screen, audiences witnessed the dinosaurs released out into the open world.
This time around, a lot has changed. Blue has a baby, Mosasaurs are eating up fishing boats and historically accurate dinosaurs. There is a lot to look forward to.
This highly anticipated summer blockbuster not only features the returning cast from Jurassic World, Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt, but also the cast of Jurassic Park (Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill) returning for the first time on screen together since the first ever Jurassic film.
Enter the end of the Jurassic saga on June 10.
Jordan Peele has been on a roll with his stylistic horror movies. “Get Out” and “Us” were monster hits and were unlike any horror movie before. Now, he is back to direct his third horror movie, which takes things to the unexplained and perhaps extraterrestrial?
Taking place in California, we will join two African American horse trainers (Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer) as they face an unknown entity that has plagued their small town home with unexplained events.
See Jordan Peele’s “Nope” in theaters on July 22.
