As you probably know, the Big Game was played last night on Sunday, February 5th, 2017. First, congratulations to New England and their many fans! Secondly, I know a lot of you don’t care about the game itself; it’s all about the commercials!
While there were plenty of good ones (and more than a few bad ones), the ones I care about the most are the movie and TV trailers shown last night. Today, I’m going to list my five favorite trailers shown during the Big Game just for you! Some of these are for movies and TV shows that I’m dying to see while others just impressed me with their creativity. Let’s get started with the movie I’m most excited to see this summer…
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
This trailer is just epic. I didn’t think I could want to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but this trailer makes me wish I could go to the theater today! For me, Dave Bautista really steals the trailer with his “I tried” line.
Cure for Wellness
I don’t know when or if I will see this movie, but I love the trailer. The voiceover in the style of selling an actual cure with a long list of sound effects is just creative marketing to me and really stuck out.
The Handmaid’s Tale
This new series on Hulu, based on Margaret Atwood’s classic novel, looks truly chilling and striking. Frightening in its plausibility, this is a tale that is still relevant now. I can’t wait to give this series a try. Watch the trailer and let me know if you agree.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Sure, the Pirates movies are getting more than a little long in the tooth, but I still love this series. This new trailer gives us our first look at Barbossa, Jack, and (more importantly) Will Turner. Will is looking a little like Davy Jones used to. Can’t mean anything good for him, can it?
I know I’m cheating on this one a little bit. This trailer didn’t really show us anything new from the X-Men spinoff, but I don’t really care. Every single trailer for Logan has been amazing and this one is no different. I can’t wait to see this movie and I hope you agree.
Bonus: The Walking Dead
This didn’t make my official top five because it’s not really a trailer. That being said, I couldn’t help but giggle uncontrollably when Lucille smashed that football. Does that make me morbid? Probably. But, in my defense, I was a huge fan of the comics and had been waiting a long time for Negan and love Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the role.
