For non-sport fans, the US Super Bowl is a place to catch all the latest big-budget commercials, check for wardrobe malfunctions and perhaps hear a diva making a hash of the US national anthem. For film fans, there is always the added bonus of getting an early look at some of the US summer blockbusters that will be screaming “look at me, look at me” during the middle months of the year (the hump if you will, or as we call it in Australia, winter).
Paramount has sent over a collection of their 30-second TV spots for some of their biggest releases this year. We’ve got a Queen-themed spot for Kung Fu Panda 2, the threequel Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon (yes, they are still going with that title), the Johnny Depp animated western Rango. There’s also the epic-sounding Cowboys & Aliens (one of our Most Anticipated in 2011), comic adaptation Thor and the Steve Spielberg/J.J. Abrams Super 8. Finally, they’ve given us some footage from the much anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger.
