10 Movie Trailers to Watch For During the Super Bowl on Sunday

There's more than the big game to get ready for this weekend.


The Super Bowl is this weekend, and while some people are eager to see if the New England Patriots or the Phillidelphia Eagles will win the big game while enjoying a beer and guacamole-filled party with friends, others will be keeping an eye out for new footage from their favorite upcoming movies. Commercials are, obviously, a big part of the Super Bowl, but in addition to Budweiser Clydesdales, the Sunday night event usually brings out a bunch of highly anticipated new trailers and TV spots for upcoming blockbusters.

Last year’s Super Bowl saw trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, Ghost in the Shell, Transformers: The Last Knight, Logan, and more. There are several similarly sized movies headed to theaters in the next couple months of 2018, and many are in need of a good trailer. Here’s a list of the big films that could get new trailers at the Super Bowl, along with a couple that have already been confirmed.
