I didn’t like #1 and fell asleep during #2 (How many times did Mickey Rourke sharpen something while talking to himself?), but “Iron Man 3” shows promise — The Mandarin is like a wicked Splinter with Harry Potter powers. Check out the Super Bowl XLVII extended trailer and an image gallery by clicking below!

“A 30-second trailer for ‘Iron Man 3’ ran during Super Bowl XLVII with Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., turning on the heroics, saving people in a free fall after their plane explodes in midair. Shortly thereafter on the Iron Man Facebook page a 1:30 trailer debuted with extended footage, highlighted by a shot of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes sporting a new set of armor.”

The trailer worked — I want to see this movie. Click the link to see the Super Bowl LXVII spot and a gallery of screen shots!

“A new trailer for ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ aired during Super Bowl XLVII, showcasing a volley of colorful action sequences and new shots of James Franco’s character, Oscar Diggs, in the fantastical world. Moments expanded upon from the full-length trailer include peculiar creatures surprising Diggs, enormous fireballs, vicious flying monkeys and an all-new clip of magical airborne transport bubbles.”

For CBR, I cut screen shots of two movie trailers aired during Super Bowl XLVII featuring the Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers —  “Star Trek Into Darkness” & “The Lone Ranger.” Click the links to read the full articles complete with trailers and photo galleries! Personally, I think both films look solid, especially ‘Trek — the 2009 movie made me a fan of the franchise, and this sequel looks like it’s going to blow that away.

“Part origin story, part high-stakes action scene and all Jerry Bruckheimer, Walt Disney Studios’ Super Bowl spot for this summer’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ offers a look at how the title character and his sidekick teamed up.

‘There were rumors that sustained us. Stories of a man born in the desert. A ghost, some said. Some said flesh and blood. A masked man — a Lone Ranger,’ the voice-over says, over images of a blood-splattered Texas Rangers badge and a tortured Armie Hammer left for dead … that is, until Johnny Depp’s Tonto shows up.”

“‘Our World Will Fall:’ ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Super Bowl Spot” — Click to read entire article

“While the previous ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ trailer was fairly somber, today’s 30-second Super Bowl spot that Paramount Pictures debuted cranks up the destruction, mayhem and drama, proclaiming ‘Our World Will Fall.’ We witness some brief verbal jousting between Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), interspersed with an Enterprise crashing into (I believe) London. Meanwhile, Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Uhura (Zoe Saldana) share a tender moment, lava explodes and Harrison asks, ‘Shall we begin?'”
