The 2020 SuperBowl trailers thread

Recommended Posts

For a non-NFL fan, non-North American like myself (I prefer soccer, lol), I know SuperBowl mostly for its connections with the entertainment world, like the halftime shows and, of course, the trailers. It's when the blockbusters of the year get their first looks or a more detailed trailers.


So, I'll be updating the thread with the trailers for this year. And let's post the commercials too, they're always funny, specially for me that have a job in marketing.


Here's what to expect from this year's crop of trailers:



Disney/20th Century Studios

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the newly-merged megastudio is said to have ‘a presence throughout the day’. The safest bet to date for new footage is Niki Caro’s live action Mulan – the final trailer for which has been rated and is expected to debut online during the game. If it happens, this would be in line with The Jungle Book‘s full trailer drop during the game a few years ago.


The trade doesn’t specify whether this also includes airtime for the 20th Century Studios titles but we would be surprised if we don’t see new spots for The Call of the Wild, and The New Mutants, if air time allows. THR also speculated a presence from Pixar’s titles such as Onward – which would be the most likely given its March release. With the trade reporting a presence from the studio during both the pre-game block as well as during it, the opportunity is certainly there.


While Marvel Studios is a Super Bowl mainstay, the recent release of a Special Look spot featuring new footage from Black Widow makes new footage from Cate Shortland’s prequel unlikely – Avengers: Age of Ultron, which also had a similar second trailer TV drop in early January, didn’t air a new Super Bowl spot in 2015.


Universal Pictures


Much like Disney, THR is reporting a presence from the studio during both the pre-game section and during the game. As previously announced before Christmas, the debut trailer for the next chapter of the Fast & Furious saga, the newly-titled F9, is set to arrive this Friday, Januaty 31. A shortened version of the piece is expected to air – much like with Hobbs & Shaw last year.


Alongside F9, according to the trade, the first public footage from Minions: The Rise of Gru is also set to debut this Sunday during the game. This follows a Star Wars-tie-in tease in cinemas last month, which never made its way online. Deadline also reports that a new spot for Leigh Whannell/Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man is also set to air.


Paramount Pictures

The third and final studio reported to be advertising this Sunday is said to advertise during the pre-game, unlike Universal and Disney. THR is reporting that spots have been confirmed for A Quiet Place Part II, Sonic The Hedgehog and SpongeBob: Sponge On The Run (spot out now).


A title we were surprised to not see in the report – and so were the THR writers, evidently – was Top Gun: Maverick, given Mission: Impossible‘s status as a Super Bowl advertising mainstay (the debut trailer for M:I – Fallout made its premiere during the game in 2018). But given its July release and three already confirmed spots, maybe they just didn’t feel the need, as it were… UPDATE: Deadline reports that last minute discussions are in progress for a Top Gun spot to appear.


Other Possibilities

Speculated by many is some sort of presence from United Artists Releasing/MGM for Daniel Craig’s James Bond finale, No Time To Die. While Bond fan site MI6-HQ is reporting that there will not be a presence from the film at the game, Deadline is speculating in their report that there is a chance. Given the five-year gap since Spectre, and that it’s the first 007 film in years (if not ever) to be out in time to utilise the Big Game, it would be a much-needed opportunity for the film to cement itself as an event. Fun fact: the announcement spot for the film’s debut trailer back in December premiered during Sunday Night Football...

Lionsgate has had a regular pre-game presence over the years, with 2019 being a notable one with the first footage from Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (with CBS Films). With the new Saw installment, reportedly titled Spiral: From The Book of Saw, due in May, this would be the perfect opportunity to unveil it to the world. However, no mention in trade reports of a presence from the distributor yet…

What Not To Expect
Warner Bros. – despite many speculative round-ups mentioning spots for Birds of Prey, some reports from dubious sources on a new look for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, and some wishful thinking for a first tease of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, the studio is still set to continue it’s 15-year streak of not advertising during the Big Game.

Sony – per the THR report, the studio will be sitting out this year’s Super Bowl, having debuted new footage from the likes of Life in the past.

Almost forgot I had created this thread, lol.


Here's some trailers that have been released so far:


Amazon Prime's Hunters, a new series produced by Jordan Peele and starring Al Pacino about a group of Nazi Hunters.



Whatever this is about Sonic the Hedgehog. James Marden's line at 0:49 will be said by many parents taking their children to this flick.



The movie that will have the best Lorne Balfe score of the year, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.



And the epic new trailer for the epic F9: The Fast Saga. If you don't remember, this franchise started about street racing and now is about secret organizations, family members that start evil but then becomes good despite murdering a lot of people, dead characters returning, etc.



Tickets are on sale now ;).


Also, expect a new Mulan trailer on Sunday and maybe some new material for Pixar's Onward, Call of the Wild, Top Gun, No Time to Die and the new Saw movie.
