Honestly, I don’t really care about the Super Bowl or Football in general, but this year it’s kinda fun seeing the playful rivalry between two Marvel cinematic superheroes. Captain America & Star-Lord, aka Chris Evans & Chris Pratt, championing for New England Patriots and Seattle SeaHawks respectively, have set a bet that whoever loses would show up in their superhero costume at a children hospital of their choice. I thought that’s really awesome and frankly, we movie fans are already winners of this bet 😀 Can’t wait to see pics of Pratt in his Star-Lord uniform at Seattle’s Children Hospital!
Apparently they watched the game together, look at them making goofy faces at the camera. Nice self promotion, Chris Pratt! 😛

Even though I didn’t watch the game, I did see some of the trailers played during the game. Here are five of my favorites:
Brad Bird is back! Him directing this film definitely the main draw for me to see it, and the story sounds intriguing too.
Basically Chris Pratt doing his best Indiana Jones’ impersonation until he does the real thing. I was skeptical about this project initially, but after the first trailer, I’m sold!
KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE
I scoffed the first time I saw the trailer for this, but the positive reviews got me excited for this now. I like Matthew Vaughn‘s direction in X-Men: First Class but this one looks more of a gleefully fun spy actioner, though the R-rating means this is NOT for kids. Can’t wait for the press screening next week!
What made Despicable Me movies so watchable are those minions, so I’m glad they get their own movie! I can’t get enough of these suspender-wearing tiny yellow creatures!!
It’s like those Mission Impossible movies but w/ muscle cars [and well, muscle men too]. I mean, I LMAO-ed all the way through every Fast & Furious trailer, but this TV spot shows the most preposterous scene ever! It’ll be bittersweet seeing Paul Walker here though.
As far as commercials go, there are some good ones. The notable one is the Chevrolet’s ‘What if your TV went out?’ which cleverly played on everyone’s biggest fear that night. Surely some people nearly had a heart attack when the saw it, ahah.
But out of those featuring celebrities, I thought these two car-related ones are pretty hilarious.
This bombastic KIA ad with Pierce Brosnan pokes fun of his James Bond role:
Thanks to Michael for reminding me about the Clash of Clans commercial, once again poking fun at his own badassery from his ubiquitous TAKEN movies!
And THIS has got to be the most fun commercial of them all. Nick Offerman rules!!
What’s your favorite Super Bowl trailers and/or commercials?
