This weekend’s big event, Super Bowl 48, brought with it a bevvy of memorable TV commercials and movie trailers and earning the most buzz were the new full-length trailers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, along with the first-look TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
In our first video, we analyzed and discussed the recently revealed character designs from X-Men: Days of Future Past, and this week we turn our attention to the buzzworthy movie commercials that debuted during the Super Bowl.
