2009 Superbowl Movie Trailers Preview

What? They’re still showing movie trailers during the Superbowl? Wait, when did they started doing this again? Because you know, after waiting all game for some great movie trailers last year, I remember not getting a whole lot for my time. In fact, I remember not getting all that many trailers at all. Or maybe the trailers were so snooze-worthy that I have washed away the lackluster showing from my memory. Could be. Hopefully 2009 will be a better year for major movie trailers, with Variety reporting a number of high-profile movies making their first appearances to the masses, including the very first trailer for “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and the most recent one for “The Fast and Furious 4”.

Here are the sure-things that will be debuting trailers during the Superbowl, which will cost the studios $3 million a pop, up $300 grand from last year. Maybe the trick was to get them to pay more per commercial? Go figure.

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”
“Star Trek”
“G.I. Joe”
“Angels and Demons”
“Monsters vs. Aliens”
“Land of the Lost”
“The Fast and the Furious 4”

Some of the maybe, maybe-not’s:

“Night at the Museum 2”
“Ice Age”
“Race to Witch Mountain”
“Terminator Salvation”
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”
