Studios love to show off their upcoming big movies during the biggest game of the year - the Super Bowl - and this year was no exception. But out of all the trailers that aired, which one actually did its job and stuck with you after the game was over?
Beyonce ruled half-time, the Ravens ruled Super Bowl XLVII, and Joe Flacco was named MVP, but did Dwayne Johnson rule over all other trailers with his passionate portrayal of a dad trying to save his son from a lengthy prison term in Snitch? Or maybe your vote would go to Brad Pitt and the zombie madness of World War Z. Iron Man 3 fans would suggest the teaser showing Iron Man forced to choose who to save was the best of the lot, but I think it missed the mark. Meanwhile Star Trek Into Darkness' trailer was effective in showcasing the action and the new villain, while Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful had flying monkeys and witches (and looked beautiful). But I'm splitting my vote for the best trailer between a Disney action adventure and Universal's sixth film of one of their most successful franchises.
Disney's new The Lone Ranger trailer delivered more action, more backstory, and more humor than the previous teasers. It also did a great job of selling the buddy chemistry between Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger. And while I can't exactly claim to be looking forward to another Fast and Furious film, that film's trailer did everything it needed to do. Fast & Furious 6 will apparently be serving up incredible stunts, more cool cars, and sexy/scantily clad women, and this first look at the May 2013 release showcased what it needed to in order to please F&F fans.
So, which trailer was your favorite? In case you need to refresh your memory, here are the trailers all hosted on Youtube or iTunes:
