Commercials get a lot of the attention during the Super Bowl, and rightfully so. It’s also a time for studios to drop huge trailers for upcoming movies. We ranked the best trailers that dropped during Super Bowl LIV. It’s a real heavy-hitter lineup.
1. Fast and Furious 9 (May 22)
Look, I’m way behind on the Fast and Furious movies (I don’t think I’ve seen one since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), but there’s no denying the reach and awesomeness of these movies. This trailer includes:
- John Cena
- A race car crash
- A police chase
- An Army-looking truck thing flipping up on its front
- Vin Diesel catching a car
- Charlize Theron with a bowl cut
- A car shooting off a jungle cliff, connecting to a cord and swinging
Check it out:
2. Top Gun: Maverick (June 26)
This had a pretty great claim at the No. 1 spot, what with all the incredible jet footage and all. Tom Cruise returns to reprise his role as Maverick, the live-by-his-own-rules Navy pilot who somehow is still active duty and flying despite 34 years passing since the first film. But never mind all that, because this shit rocks:
3. Black Widow (May 1)
FLORENCE PUGH HIVE, ASSEMBLE.
We’ve got Taskmaster, we’ve got a LOT of explosions, and we’ve got a lot of fight scenes. I don’t think it’s controversial to say that maybe a Black Widow spin-off wasn’t something the public was clamoring for, but this looks AWESOME.
4. Mulan (March 27)
YESSSSSS. Disney is deviating from remaking their cartoons into shot-for-shot live-action movies for this one, cutting out the songs (and Mushu) and focusing on the story. The Mulan trailer is jam-packed full of action, Yifei Liu looks like a total badass, and Donnie Yen (Rogue One, IP Man) is still the best.
5. No Time To Die (April 10)
It should tell you something about how strong this list is when the action-packed James Bond trailer is last on the list. This looks like it’s going to be another solid Daniel Craig Bond flick, and the breakout star of Knives Out (Ana de Armas) is continuing her hot streak. Plus, Rami Malek as a bad guy? Yeah, I’m in.
