Yesterday I wrote about the Super Bowl commercials and which ones were my favorite. Today I will talk about some of the exciting new movie trailers that aired during that wonderful game.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
This was the first movie commercial that aired and it was amazing. I’m very excited to see the new additions to the Guardians, Yondu, Nebula, and Mantis. I already know Yondu and Nebula but who is Mantis. Yondu has his awesome arrow that he can use as a deadly weapon just by whistling. Nebula is like Gamora, she uses sword like weapons and is scientifically enhanced. What will Mantis’s powers be except for her telepathic abilities? I can’t wait to see.
I loved that the commercial started with that eye-popping shot of the Guardians speaking to a golden lady in a beautiful building. Then it showed a lot of other stuff that wasn’t in the other trailers that was exciting. I loved the humor in the commercial because it’s the Guardians and they’re hilarious. The great thing is it looks like this Guardians of the Galaxy is going to be funnier than the last one. After that commercial I am now very excited to see this movie in May. It’s going to be so good. That commercial also reminded me of how vibrant and colorful the Guardians of the Galaxy movies are. Whereas most of the Marvel movies aren’t visually stunning Guardians of the Galaxy is the exact opposite.
This is the first movie in a long list of great blockbusters that will be appearing in May through July. May can’t seem to come fast enough.
This is going to be a very, very good movie. I judge a movie off its trailers and commercials and this movie is five stars in both of those realms. I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not a big fan of X-Men movies. In fact the only one I’ve watched all the way through was X-Men: Days of Future Past a few years ago. It wasn’t horrible but I can only watch it once. This is the first X-Men movie I’m actually very excited to see. I also love that it’s rated R so they don’t have to hold anything back.
Did this commercial really bring anything new to the table? Not really. The end was the best part because it showed an action scene that involved Logan and the girl fighting a few baddies. That got me super excited. I can’t wait until March.
Pirates of the Caribbean: A Dead Man’s Tale
This movie had one of the best first trailers I have ever seen. It showed nothing but it explained so much. I’ve been waiting to see some new footage from the movie and I’m glad to say I wasn’t disappointed. There’s going to be a lot of dead pirates causing havoc in the Caribbean. I’m glad that the commercial still didn’t really show anything like the first trailer did. I have no idea what’s going on and I don’t want to know until I’m watching it in the movie theater.
The interesting thing about the commercial was Captain Jack Sparrow. Has he become some sort of dead pirate to hide from the dead people who are looking for him? Maybe, maybe not, who knows. I just can’t wait to see this Pirates of the Caribbean. I have no doubt it’s going to be the best installment in the franchise.
Transformers: The Last Knight
And last but not least is the Transformers commercial. I am ecstatic to see this film. I was one of the few people who actually enjoyed Transformers: Age of Extinction. Yes, the story wasn’t very polished but the action was incredible. And there was a lot of it. I watched that movie three times in the movie theaters and every time I came out grinning from ear to ear. It was the loudest movie I’ve ever been to. I mean the seats and floor were rumbling with the loudness of the movie. Now another Transformers movie has come and judging from the trailers and the commercial the story looks like it’ll be a lot better.
I have two big questions from the trailer and the commercial. First of all what is this giant alien planet looking thing coming towards Earth? Is it some sort of spaceship with a whole bunch of evil Transformers aboard it ready to cause some serious harm to the people on Earth? Or is like the Death Star and has some sort of laser beam that can blow up planets? I don’t know but I can’t wait to see. Secondly why is Optimus Prime bad? He obviously knows what he’s doing so why is he fighting his friends? He must be under some sort of spell because if you look closely his eyes are purple instead of blue. Maybe he’s mind controlled by whatever is on that giant metal orb. Whatever the case all my questions will be answered in due time.
So these were my favorite movie commercials that aired during Super Bowl LI. Now I have to wait until Star Wars: The Last Jedi will eventually show a teaser.
