Super Bowl XLV has begun and while some place their bets on the epic Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers match-up, others find themselves more interested in the expensive commercial breaks, where the biggest and best car, beer and other advertisers premiere their most important (and most entertaining) television commercials of the year.
You can check out what we’ve already picked out as the best Super Bowl commercials of 2011, but we’re much more interested in the Super Bowl movie trailers. There are a plethora of major film TV spots to get excited about, and many have debuted online already. But we patiently (and anxiously) await the biggest ones of the event: Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, Super 8, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and more!
- Captain America: The First Avenger
- Transformers: Dark of the Moon & Transformers 3/ Chevy “Bumblebee” ad
- Cowboys & Aliens
- Battle: Los Angeles
- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
- Kung Fu Panda 2: Kaboom of Doom
- Super 8
- Drive Angry 3D
- The Eagle

- Justin Bieber: Never Say Never 3D
- Take Me Home Tonight
Most of the films above have seen trailers and TV spots already but two stand out for us, both from Paramount Pictures and both making their world premieres during the game. These are of course Marvel Studios’ Captain America and J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. Did they live up to your expectations?
