While most Americans and fans of the sport tuned into the Super Bowl yesterday to enjoy two football teams competing for the trophy, I have to say, I was just looking forward to the movie trailers. With millions of eyes watching this incredibly popular event, many have now realized that there’s no better time to advertise your product than during the Super Bowl – and that goes for movies too! And with a whole lot of big blockbusters and highly anticipated movies releasing in the near future, we were treated to some especially exciting trailers and clips. So let’s just get right into it, here are the Super Bowl movie trailers that really caught my eye.

The Flash

Release date: July 16, 2023

Look, as bad as Ezra Miller has been and as much as I am disappointed by his recent actions, The Flash movie looks pretty incredible. More Ben Affleck as Batman but also Michael Keaton returning as Batman? Wow, who would’ve thought. The story looks pretty action-packed and as a fan of the original “Flashpoint” comic, it looks like they’re on the right track to doing the comic justice. While of course a movie can never be simply judged just from its trailer, let’s just say they’ve got me paying attention now.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Release date: May 5, 2023

As the final chapter to this beloved trilogy, this new Super Bowl trailer for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 really brings home the excitement and emotional factor for the fans. Knowing this film will be a goodbye of sorts, I think the trailer perfectly captured that kind of melancholy tone while still staying true to the wacky and hilarious group that is the Guardians of the Galaxy. This trailer did exactly what it was supposed to do (which is to get me excited for the film), and I can’t wait to head to theatres to watch it when it releases later this year in May (which is so soon!).

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Release date: June 30, 2023

Who doesn’t love Harrison Ford and the Indiana Jones franchise? Though very little has been disclosed about this movie and what the story will entail, it’s probably Ford’s last opportunity to play this iconic character so I’m all ears. Of the little glimpse we get in this clip showing the de-aging CGI done on Ford, I’ll say it looks pretty good so far. I’ll be curious to see how it holds up on the big screen, but for now, I’ll just say I’m pretty excited for the film.


Release date: April 5, 2023

Honestly, I’m just so excited to see Matt Damon and Ben Affleck working together again! I believe the first trailer for Air was just released three days prior, but from what I’m seeing, I have some high hopes for the film. The premise seems interesting, and since it’s about such a beloved basketball player and shoe, I think there’s a good chance people will be interested. I love a good biographical film, and when done right, they usually become one of my favourite films. So here’s to hoping that the Damon and Affleck combo can pull off another great film!

You may have noticed that Fast X (2023) is not on this list…and well, that’s because I watched it and thought it was utterly ridiculous. I’m a big fan of the first seven Fast and Furious films, but they’ve continued on for too long and have now reached the point of utter nonsense. It’s not even about cars and racing anymore, it’s all about explosions and CGI! But yeah, just wanted to point that out in case you’re wondering why it didn’t make it onto my list. In all honesty, the movie just looks terrible to me. But hey, if you’re excited for it I’d still love to hear your thoughts on why! I’ve included the trailer for the movie below too if you haven’t seen it yet. 🙂
