Every year the Super Bowl means new movie trailers.  Surprisingly the most exciting of all the movie trailers that aired during Sunday’s 51st Super Bowl game may be the all-star cast assemblage in The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film in the Fast and the Furious series.  Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham, and many more make for a great cast, and the action scenes look very big indeed.

But we got plenty of new previews, too.  Two movies of the bunch are not big franchise sequels, one we have seen a trailer for previously, Ghost in the Shell, and the other is a Ryan Reynolds mainstream space flick called Life.  Co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal, it looks like several episodes of spaceship disaster episodes we’ve seen from decades of Doctor Who.  The next Passengers?  Hopefully not.

Of the sequels, we have previews for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (proving again you can’t beat using a Johnny Cash song for your trailer), Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Transformers (5): The Last Knight, and the next X-Men movie, Logan.

Check out all these movie trailers, after the break:

It’s the sporting event day you’ve been waiting all year for.

Unless you’re watching the Super Bowl to actually see the game, you can find all the commercials online today, freeing up your schedule to watch Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XIII.  It’s hard to believe we’ve been watching this too-darned-cute puppy outing for thirteen years now.

The Puppy Bowl kicks off at 2 p.m. Central on Animal Planet and you can catch it throughout the day.  Get more information, including how the event is helping animals, at the Animal Planet website here.  Pregame commentary is available here.
