The best trailers from the Superbowl: Falcon and Winter Soldier, F9 and more
Super Bowl: It’s one of the few times a year I pay attention to sports, and it’s not even because of the actual sport part. It’s because of
the Puppy Bowl all the new trailers dropping during the ad breaks. And boy, did 2021 deliver. From Disney Plus’ new Avengers series to two long-awaited sequels and tons more, we were pretty spoilt this year. Thanks, football.
Without further ado, here are the best Super Bowl trailers for some of the year’s most highly-anticipated releases.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Super Bowl trailer
Set after the events of The Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson (the Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (the Winter Soldier), this six-episode miniseries will follow the unlikely duo as they fight against the anarchist group known as the Flag-Smashers. You can catch it on Disney Plus from March 19.
Need a refresher on the Avengers universe? You can catch all movies (and the recent spinoff Wandavision) on Disney Plus right now. Not a subscriber? Mickey’s about to hike the price, so you might want to get in quick to lock in the cheaper price.
Coming 2 America Super Bowl trailer
Want to feel old? The original Coming to America is 33 years old. Yeah, we know, it’s gross. Anyway, Eddie Murphy and co. have finally gotten around to producing a sequel, Coming 2 America, which follows the soon-to-be King of Zamunda (Murphy) who travels to America to meet the son he only just found out about. It hits Amazon Prime Video on March 5.
F9 Super Bowl trailer
The ninth instalment of the epic Fast & Furious series is just a few short months away, and fans got their first look during the Super Bowl with this killer (and pretty damn long) trailer. Set after the events of The Fate of the Furious, F9 sees Dominic Toretto pitted against his younger brother Jakob, a hitman working with their old enemy, Cipher. It’s scheduled for a cinema release on May 28.
The entire Fast & Furious series is pretty ubiquitous across most streaming services (Netflix, Stan and Prime Video), however, the only streaming service with every single film (including the most recent Fate of the Furious) is Binge.
Raya and the Last Dragon Super Bowl trailer
500 years after the dragons bravely sacrificed themselves to save humanity from evil monsters known as the Druun, the world of Kumandra once again faces their enemy, but this time, there are no dragons to help them – except one. It’s up to Raya, a lone warrior, and her companion Tuk Tuk to track down this last remaining dragon in order to fend off the Druun once and for all.
Raya and the Last Dragon will come to theatres on March 5, but Disney Plus subscribers can watch it through the service from the same date. The only catch? Like Mulan, it’ll cost you an extra $34.99 for the privilege.
