Hollywood is debuting a number of new movie and TV show trailers at Super Bowl LII - starting days before the big game even kicked off - and they're all available to watch right here.
Each year, the Super Bowl is a massive event not only in the world of professional sports but entertainment in general; while more than 100 million viewers tune in to watch the Super Bowl in the United States alone, not all of them watch for the sole purpose of learning who will win the National Football League championship game (this year Philadelphia Eagles vs. the New England Patriots on NBC). Plenty of viewers tune in for the creative Super Bowl commercials that debut during the game every year, or for the trailers revealed for upcoming high-profile movies and television series.

In the weeks leading up to the big game, some studios teased trailers they planned to debut during the Super Bowl, including Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Meanwhile, rumors about other trailers, like Netflix's newly acquired Cloverfield 3, surfaced and managed to hype up movie fans ahead of Super Bowl Sunday. Some studios even began dropping their trailers days before the Super Bowl in order to avoid the oversaturation of teasers on February 4th.
Now the onslaught has begun, we've rounded up every Super Bowl LII movie and TV trailer right here. Be sure to keep checking in, as we’ll update with more trailers as and when they become available.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Disney and Lucasfilm debuted the latest episodic installment in the galaxy far, far away just a few months ago, but another anthology movie is set to hit theaters this summer with Solo: A Star Wars Story. The Solo Super Bowl teaser trailer is the first footage we've seen of the Star Wars movie, and it offers fans a first look at Alden Ehrenreich as the smuggler who became a pop culture icon thanks to Harrison Ford's performance. The full first trailer for Solo will debut the morning after the Super Bowl on Good Morning America.
UPDATE: the full Solo trailer is now available online.
Avengers: Infinity War
This year marks 10 years since Marvel Studios launched their Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they're celebrating by releasing three films in theaters: Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man & the Wasp. With Black Panther less than two weeks out, Marvel Studios took the opportunity of the big game to debut an Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl TV spot, hyping up fans for their summer release. After the long wait for the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer, fans will no doubt be glad to see the studio promoted the massive team-up during Super Bowl LII.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Universal is gearing up to debut Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom this summer, the sequel to Colin Trevorrow's 2015 smash hit Jurassic World. Though the reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise wasn't necessarily a critical hit, it did earn more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office, proving the financial viability of the dinosaur-focused blockbuster series. A Monster Calls helmer JA Bayona directed the upcoming film, which is set to be a scarier installment in the franchise, as evidenced by the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Super Bowl trailer.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout
After director Christopher McQuarrie revealed the first trailer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout would debut during Super Bowl LII, Paramount aired part of the teaser during the big game, releasing the full trailer online. In the days leading up to Super Bowl Sunday, a trailer teaser for Mission: Impossible - Fallout hyped up fans for Tom Cruise's return as Ethan Hunt, and Henry Cavill's debut with his much-talked-about mustache. Now, the Mission: Impossible - Fallout Super Bowl trailer offers fans their first look at the highly anticipated action blockbuster.
The Cloverfield Paradox
Netflix officially acquired Cloverfield 3, titled The Cloverfield Paradox, announcing it would debut on the streaming service with its trailer that aired during the game. To make the Super Bowl trailer for Cloverfield 3 even more exciting - possibly since the deal was reported late last month - The Cloverfield Paradox will debut on Netflix shortly after the Super Bowl wraps up. The franchise, kicking off with JJ Abrams' Cloverfield in 2008, is notorious for its viral marketing, but Netflix's plan is slightly different and will allow fans to watch the film much sooner than expected.
Though Warner Bros. is sitting out Super Bowl LII in terms of promoting the upcoming Dwayne Johnson-led video game adaptation Rampage, Universal is taking the chance to promote another Johnson-starring summer blockbuster: Skyscraper. The studio confirmed the first trailer for Skyscraper would arriving during the Super Bowl with an initial teaser released in the week prior to the game. Universal released a TV spot for action film during the big game, with the Skyscraper Super Bowl trailer arriving later on during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Although 20th Century Fox wasn't expected to have a presence during Super Bowl LII, the studio announced they'd be unveiling a new TV commercial for Red Sparrow. The upcoming thriller stars Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika Egorova, a Russian ballerina turned spy. Lawrence reteamed with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence for the film that hits theaters next month. The Red Sparrow Super Bowl teaser offers another look at the titular spy, teasing, "She's out of your league."
A Quiet Place
Paramount Pictures' upcoming horror/thriller A Quiet Place, also received some major promotion during the big game. The Super Bowl TV spot for A Quiet Place offers a new look at the film starring and directed by John Krasinski. Set in a world that has been ravaged by a mysterious menace, Krasinski's character does everything he can to keep his family safe - and to be safe, they must be quiet.
When HBO's Westworld debuted in late 2016, it arrived after a number of production delays, but quickly became a critical hit for the network. The show's delicately weaved science fiction story also inspired plenty of devotion from fans, as they theorized and puzzled out where exactly season 1 was headed. Now, ahead of the show's 2018 return, HBO debuted a Westworld season 2 Super Bowl trailer, using the big game to generate buzz for the series' second outing - and unveil the official Westworld season 2 premiere date.
Westworld season 2 premieres April 22 on HBO.
Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan
Amazon Prime debuted a new trailer for Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, the upcoming television series starring John Krasinski as the titular CIA analyst who leaves his safe desk job to venture into the field. This isn't the first trailer for the Jack Ryan TV series, but it does preview plenty of explosive action. The Jack Ryan Super Bowl trailer takes into account the scale of the game and delivers on action spectacle and globe-trotting adventure accordingly.

Hulu debuted a new teaser for Castle Rock, their upcoming television series based on the works of Stephen King. A previously released teaser trailer for Castle Rock offered fans their first look at the series revolving around the fictional town of Castle Rock; the show will include Shawshank Prison, where Bill Skarsgard's character will be an inmate, and elements from a number of other King novels and short stories. Now, the Castle Rock Super Bowl trailer offers a creepy look inside the upcoming series.

After the success of FOX's high school dramedy Glee inspired a brief wave of musical television series, the niche genre fell out of popularity for a time. However, NBC is combining the drama of beloved series like Friday Night Lights and Parenthood with the musical genre for their upcoming series Rise. And with this year's big game airing on the network, NBC took the opportunity to promote the show with a Super Bowl commercial for Rise, which focuses on one character's role on the football team and the musical talent of the young cast.
