Trailer Roundup: SUPER BOWL LI
With the Super Bowl happening last night audiences were guaranteed a look at some of the bigger movies coming out this year, but sans the latest Pirates of the Caribbean installment most of what was glimpsed last night was all footage in some way, shape, or form that had been seen before. As Forbes writer Scott Mendelson wrote last week, the appearance of a new Star Wars movie every December has more or less turned the Super Bowl into a rerun exercise when it comes to movie trailers. It's an interesting trend to consider and one that likely won't be going away anytime soon, but the Super Bowl is still the biggest television event of the year drawing between 110 and 115 million people each year. Taken on those terms and considering the current price tag for thirty seconds of airtime is a record high $5 million it makes sense why studios still want to buy up the spots available as many of them mark the first time those who haven't been to the theater since Rogue One will have seen anything of the 2017 slate that they might be surprised by or excited to see. Per usual, Warner Bros. sat out the event so there was no new Wonder Woman trailer and no new look at Justice League, but Disney had a good night as it had both what was arguably the best received trailer of the night as well as the most popular. The Disney-Marvel production that will be the massive Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 generated a reported 47,800 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and was the most talked about trailer of the night. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was the trailer with the most to gain last night and gain it did as it showed why people should still be excited for a Pirates movie while finally giving us the first glimpse of Johnny Depp's return as Jack Sparrow in a fun albeit brief shot. It also followed Guardians in popularity so the wait was seemingly worth it for this fifth film in the Disney theme park franchise. As ranked by social media response the latest Transformers flick came in third, followed by The Fate of the Furious, and then Logan. Hit the jump to watch each of the movie trailers that debuted during the big game as well as the first look at season 2 of Stranger Things just for fun.
