For movie fans, it seems that the Super Bowl may not be offering the true first looks at new footage and teases for some of the upcoming films whose studios are paying millions of dollars for. Instead, they're being released online in advance.
Earlier today we got a look at what may be my most anticipated film of the year in the new Super Bowl TV spot for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender and now we also have the TV spots that will air for Robin Hood and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
I find it strange these are becoming available several days before the main event but I'm not complaining. There are still several other big movies set to show off new TV Spots during the Super Bowl, but maybe they'll all come early too?
Before we get to the actual movie ad, here is the teaser for families who would love to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando. We posted the first look of the attraction through an image of Hogwart’s Castle and now we have an idea of exactly what we can expect to experience:
Next up we have the TV spot for this summer's prequel to Gladiator starring Russell Crowe and directed by Ridley Scott, returning to the franchise to... oh, I mean Robin Hood. In all seriousness though, I am looking forward to watching Robin Hood despite it re-telling the familiar version of Robin Hood we all know (instead of their original plan to make it called Nottingham where Robin is the villain) and despite the dudes in this ad running up the beach with shields made of cardboard, flapping in the wind.

What do you think of the TV spots?
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens in just a few months and Robin Hood hits theaters May 14, 2010.
