A trailer for Jordan Peele’s Nope is confirmed, while one for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series is expected.
The Super Bowl may be a star-studded affair for Game Day ads, but for the past couple years, it’s been a little lighter when we start talking about commercials for new films and upcoming TV series.
Of course, in 2021, we were still in the tight grip of a global pandemic and fluctuating release schedules made for a pretty low-key affair on the trailer front. Disney+ and Universal did the most, dropping footage from “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “Black Widow,” “WandaVision” and “F9” … and, once again, Universal may be doing the heavy lifting.
The week before game day, the studio confirmed that the first trailer for Jordan Peele’s latest horror movie “Nope” will premiere during the telecast. A teaser for the trailer dropped Tuesday, highlighting Peele’s “Get Out” and “Us,” before showing quick glimpses of “Nope” cast members Keke Palmer, Daniel Kaluuya and Steven Yeun.
On Thursday before the game, Universal dropped the first full trailer for “Jurassic World Dominion,” so fans can probably expect a shorter version of that to play during the main event as well.
The movie features the return of OG “Jurassic Park” trifecta Laura Dern, Sam O’Neill and Jeff Goldblum, as dinosaurs run amok in the real world after escaping from captivity. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are also back.
The movie will be released June 10, 2022.
Paramount debuted a :30 spot for “The Lost City,’ which will air during the pre-game, early as well. The movie stars Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe and Brad Pitt, with Bullock playing a romance writer who is kidnapped by a billionaire (Radcliffe) hoping she can lead him to a lost treasure. Tatum plays one of her cover models, who hopes to prove he’s a real hero.
The movie hits theaters March 25, 2022.
Paramount also dropped its Big Game Spot for “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” highlighting the additions of Tails and Knuckles to the sequel. Colleen O’Shaughnessey voices tails, while Idris Elba will voice Knuckles in the flick.
In the movie, “Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.” Jim Carrey and James Marsden return, as does Ben Schwartz as the voice of the titular video game character.
The movie races into theaters on April 8.
Other than that, not much else has really been confirmed, though many are expecting new looks at “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness.” Since Disney+ went all out last year, we could possibly get a new trailer for “Moon Knight” as well, ahead of its March 30 premiere.
On the TV side, Amazon Studios will also be dropping the first teaser trailer for “The Lord of the Rings: the Rings of Power,” following the release of character posters the week before. The show doesn’t premiere until September.
