Each year, sports fans watch the Superbowl to see who’s going to win the game, and movie fans watch to get some great trailers. I certainly fall into the latter category. I don’t exactly know what’s happening on the field, but I love finding great game spot trailers.
Just like everything this year, Superbowl ads are a little different. Franchises like “The Fast and the Furious” aired a trailer last year, and then, because of delays, another this year. There were much fewer trailers than usual, as well, with only five movie trailers airing and three TV trailers.
The TV trailers were: Marvel’s buddy series “The Falcon and the Winter Solider,” a “Silence of the Lambs” sequel called “Clarice,” and a “Yellowstone” prequel intriguingly titled “Yellowstone: 1883.”
Here are all the movie trailers that aired during Sunday’s big game:
