The most exciting trailers that aired during Super Bowl 2024
Started in 1967, the Super Bowl is the National Football League’s (NFL) biggest sporting event of the year. Since then, the championship game has morphed into a pop culture phenomenon that has grown bigger than the sport itself. While tens of thousands tune in for the scintillating final match, the jaw-dropping half-time performances and most recently, catching Taylor Swift cheering on her beau Travis Kelce, others won’t miss the Super Bowl for the cinema.
Every year, new first-look teasers and extended trailers for several highly anticipated films are revealed and the Super Bowl LVIII is no different. Ahead, watch eight of the biggest trailers that were aired during Super Bowl 2024, including Ariana Grande in Wicked, Deadpool 3 (now officially titled Deadpool & Wolverine), and Inside Out 2.
A Quiet Place: Day One
Taking the helm from writer and director John Krasinski, Michael Sarnoski takes on this cult-favourite IP by expanding on its silent universe. Set in New York City on the day of the alien invasion, A Quite Place: Day One follows Sam and her cat Frodo during their day trip to the Big Apple when chaos strikes. It stars Lupita Nyong’o, Joseph Quinn, Djimon Hounsou and Alex Wolff, and premieres on 28 June 2024.
Deadpool & Wolverine
You head it yourself, Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool is the “Marvel Jesus” coming to save the MCU. The Deadpool trailer marks Reynold’s third return as the anti-hero and his first official appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Keeping true to his foul-mouthed and unapologetic nature, you can bet that the Merc with a Mouth is coming for Disney’s PG-13 rating—and he won’t be doing it alone. As the title suggests, Hugh Jackman returns as Wolverine and will have a significant role in the film come 26 June 2024.
Be honest, who else cried listening to that snippet of Defying Gravity? After months of bated breath, fans of the beloved Broadway musical can now have their first look at the upcoming Wicked movie! Returning to the enchanting Emerald City, Wicked explores the untold story that ultimately sees two friends fulfill their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West. If you think you know the story, think again. Coming to theatres on 27 November 2024, Wicked is the first chapter of a two-part immersive, cinematic event directed by Jon M. Chu. It also stars Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh, Bridgerton’s Jonathan Bailey and Jeff Goldblum as the Wizard of Oz.
Inside Out 2
It’s time to head back into Riley’s head! At the Super Bowl 2024, we finally got a first-look teaser at the upcoming sequel to Inside Out. Joy, Sadness, Fear and Disgust run a tight ship at Riley Inc. headquarters but things begin to change as Riley enters her adolescent years and grows new emotions. The first to arrive? Hello, Anxiety! We can’t wait for the teenage angst to take over this summer.
It’s Dev Patel like you’ve never seen him before. Serving as both director and protagonist, Monkey Man centres on a young boy, Kid, who often gets beaten to a pulp by stronger fighters at an underground fight club for money. After years of suppressed rage and trauma, Kid takes it upon himself to infiltrate the gritty underbelly of the city’s criminal elite and exacts his revenge on those who have taken everything from him. Monkey Man comes to theatres on 5 April 2024.
The Fall Guy
The Fall Guy is already on our radar for its star-studded cast featuring Emily Blunt, Ryan Gosling and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. At Super Bowl 2024, a new trailer was revealed and it’s everything we could ask for. Cue big explosions, car chases, insane chemistry and Gosling crying in a car to Taylor Swift in this high-octane action-comedy coming to theatres 3 May 2024.
Fans who enjoyed the original 1997 tornado thriller are in luck this year as Glen Powell steps into the late Bill Paxton’s shoes as the tornado tamer. As the title suggests, Twisters follows a group of storm chasers who have to deal with not one but two storms at once. The action-thriller sequel will premiere in July 2024 and also stars Daisy Edgar-Jones.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes
Set several generations after Caesar’s reign, director Wes Ball breathes new life into the iconic trilogy that followed the fall of man and the rise of the apes. The new official trailer shows the continual divide between the two species as a new tyrannical ape aims to build his empire and hunt down surviving humans. When a young ape forms an unlikely friendship with a girl (Freya Allan), he begins to question everything he knows about the past and goes on a journey that will define a future for apes and humans alike.
