Only half of the movies that advertised during last year’s Super Bowl went on to commercial success, and of the top five movies at the 2014 box office, only one — “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” — advertised during the Big Game.
But it’s hard to quantify whether the ad placements had any impact on the films’ eventual returns, so studios will continue to bring their biggest and most highly anticipated films to the show.
Here are the films you can expect to see new footage from during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. This post will be continually updated as more spots are confirmed and/or released.
