Super Bowl trailers are an interesting phenomenon. Studios aren’t given enough time to actually show off a full theatrical-style trailer. Instead, they either inundate Super Bowl viewers with uninspired ads for big-box productions that have already been marketed heavily to the public, or they do a quick, mysterious tease for relatively unknown projects designed to generate buzz.
In some cases, these trailers are released prior to Super Bowl Sunday, which to some degree diminishes their allure. 2015 is expected to be a pretty good year for movies, but you might not know it from watching what Hollywood had to offer during the Super Bowl.
