The commercials have long been the only reason to watch the Super Bowl, and this year Film Threat is focusing on all the film preview clips and trailers that were unleashed during the 2008 event. Get comfortable, and start watching…
“The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” Trailer
Oh, to be Prince Caspian! For the life of me, I can’t remember the plot of this one but the kids are back and so is the Christ-Lion (I mean, Aslan) so expect more CGI-allegory and fun.
Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian – 20th Century Fox
“Drillbit Taylor” Trailer
If it’s one thing you won’t find on Super Bowl Sunday, it’s trailers for dramas and romantic comedies. Nope, it’s either straight-up humor or action, and “Drillbit Taylor” hopes to fill the former with Owen Wilson playing a homeless man pretending to be a bodyguard… or something…
Drillbit Taylor – Paramount Pictures
“Iron Man” Trailer
No need to talk about the plot, this trailer just gives us more of what we want: Iron Man flying around and blowing s**t up!
Iron Man – Paramount Pictures
Jackie Moon for Bud Light
This is the only film-centric commercial that’s not a trailer, and it’s basically Will Ferrell embodying yet another hilarious character while pimping Bud Light. Oh, Jackie Moon, you eclipse my heart…
Jackie Moon – Bud Light
We can’t show you Jackie Moon and then not immediately show you the trailer for the film he stars in, right?
Semi-Pro: Jackie Moon – New Line Cinema
It’s Anakin Skywalker vs. Mace Windu in the taser-riffic rematch we’ve all been waiting for! Or that no one has been waiting for! Look, special effects! Ooooooooooooh…
Jumper – 20th Century Fox
Campy Clooney returns in a old school football flick! The question is whether he hams it up for the whole film, or just the bits they decided to feature for the trailer.
Leatherheads – Universal Pictures
Pixar and cute robots. How could this go wrong? Oh, don’t mention “Cars,” that doesn’t count…
Angelina Jolie and guns, as American as apple pie, baseball and missionary-style sex with a cheese grater. Bring it on!
“You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” Trailer
If this movie does poorly, the word will get out that: You Don’t Cast the Adam Sandler!
