Super Bowl LII will offer film and TV fans a fresh look at some of 2019’s most anticipated upcoming projects - but which movies and TV shows will get trailers during the big game?
The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year, but viewers tune in not just for the football game. In addition to the game, there's the much-hyped halftime show, and the debut of fun or more serious commercials. Plus, studios and networks also use ad time to release new trailers or TV spots previewing the year's high profile film and TV releases. For film and TV fans, those new trailers might even be the most anticipated aspect of the Super Bowl.
This year, Super Bowl LIII will see the New England Patriots face off against the Los Angeles Rams Feb. 3 on NBC. With kickoff scheduled for 6:30pm ET, viewers watching at home can expect an exciting game - and even more exciting trailers to debut during the show. Although we don't know every movie and TV show that will get ad time during the game, some have been confirmed. Now, we break down which movies and TV shows fans can expect to receive new trailers or TV spots, and which will definitely NOT be previewed. We'll keep this article updated as news comes in about Super Bowl LIII trailers.

What Super Bowl 2019 Movie & TV Trailers Are Confirmed
Universal Pictures is set to release the first Fast & Furious spinoff movie later this year, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, focusing on Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw. As one of the bigger blockbuster movies of 2019, it makes sense the film will have a presence at the Super Bowl and one of the stars has confirmed as much. Johnson revealed the first Hobbs & Shaw trailer will debut during Super Bowl LIII. The Hobbs & Shaw trailer has since debuted ahead of the big game, though Johnson did promise the movie will still receive a TV spot during the Super Bowl.
Paramount will also have a presence during the pre-game festivities, with it being reported the studio will unveil a new TV spot for their upcoming animated movie Wonder Park. However, it looks like the studio will be sitting out the game itself.
What Super Bowl 2019 Movie & TV Trailers To Expect
Considering how massive the stage of the Super Bowl is, it's incredibly likely studios will use ad time to promote some of their biggest upcoming releases. In the case of Disney, their most likely candidates are Avengers: Endgame since it's Marvel Studios' most anticipated debut of 2019 and Dumbo - their first of three live-action retellings set to hit theaters this year. It's possible Disney/Marvel will market Captain Marvel, but if the studio were to market only one MCU film, it's most likely to be Endgame. After all, Marvel Studios did release an Avengers: Infinity War TV spot last year, rather than Black Panther. Further, reports indicate Disney may promote Aladdin and Toy Story 4 during the Super Bowl as well, though it's been unconfirmed by the studio.
Further, since 20th Century Fox is releasing Alita: Battle Angel so soon after the Super Bowl, it seems a likely candidate for some kind of new TV spot or trailer during the game. Another big release in the first half of 2019 is Summit Entertainment's Hellboy, the reboot starring David Harbour. Given its positioning as a big release early in 2019, it's also possible Hellboy will receive a new TV spot or trailer during the Super Bowl.
On the TV side, perhaps the most likely 2019 show to receive a high profile trailer debut is Netflix's Stranger Things. Season 3 of the beloved sci-fi show debuts this summer, and Netflix is no stranger to promoting the series during the big game. After all, the first Stranger Things season 2 teaser trailer debuted during the Super Bowl in 2017.
