The Super Bowl LV brings with it the release of a selection of trailers, featuring the MCU, Eddie Murphy, and more. Watch them all here!
The Super Bowl LV has brought much entertainment to viewers – both through releasing new movie and TV trailers, and via the game itself. While the focus is on the exciting competition between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs, professional sport isn’t the only thing offered by the yearly event.
Though naturally much of the entertainment industry has been slowed in regards to production due to the effect of the coronavirus, the 2021 Super Bowl still has an impressive selection of trailers to reveal to eager viewers. Though the crown jewel of the entertainment provided outside of the game is of course the halftime performance – this year featuring iconic Canadian musician The Weeknd – the long-lasting impact of the Super Bowl’s trailer reveals is not to be underestimated.

Every year the Super Bowl provides an insight into what to expect from the coming months, and – against the odds – 2021 appears to hold a series of exciting releases, including some delayed 2020 films. The Super Bowl might not have been as packed as usual, but there were some stand out moments. Here’s every trailer from the 2021 Super Bowl.
Fast & Furious 9
Those who watched 2020’s Super Bowl may have felt a sense of deja vu while witnessing this trailer – as 2021 once again brings a sneak peek at Fast & Furious 9. Much of the trailer provides similar information to its predecessor, but it does provide an interesting look into a car that can transform into a truck, which brings a strong suggestion that this installment may manage to since again up the ante (and antics) of the franchise. F9 is scheduled for 26 May 2021.
Nobody expected “They stole my kitty cat bracelet!” to be the most iconic line uttered in the Super Bowl LV, but it’s also certainly not a bad thing that it is. The Nobody trailer sees iconic Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk play the role of Hutch Mansell, a kind and gentle father and husband who is often overlooked in life – right up until a break in triggers a dormant instinct for violence that leads him down a dangerous road. Though action-packed, the trailer also suggests a dark humor in the film that may make it similar to its main character – an underestimated gem. Nobody releases April 23.
Raya and The Last Dragon
Cheerful PG animated films about unity are a resource that there is an endless demand for, and Raya and The Last Dragon appears to provide it skillfully. The Frozen studio brings a tale of legendary dragons and the epic quest to reunite with the last of them, masterfully animated in 3d. Raya and the Last Dragon also brings some surprising voice talent, most notably including Kelly Marie Tran in the lead role, known for her previous work in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Raya and The Last Dragon releases March 5 in theatres and on Disney+ for a Premier Access fee.
As has come to be expected from any M. Night Shyamalan film, Old looks to be a truly brain-warping experience. The film features a family who take a seemingly innocent trip to the beach – only to discover the place is more than meets the eye, as they begin to age rapidly. The movie is inspired by the 2010 graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frederik Peeters, which itself was compared to The Twilight Zone in regards to its complete surreality – so it’s safe to say the Shyamalan edition will prove both fascinating and deeply disturbing. Old releases July 23.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
Another trailer that has appeared in both the 2020 and 2021 Super Bowl, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier promises to be yet another interesting MCU show from Disney+. Though much of the show has been revealed in earlier trailers, the Super Bowl LV edition of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier emphasizes that the show will be set in the early days of Sam and Bucky’s working relationship, and appears to suggest that Steve Rogers may be dead at this point in the timeline, calling into question theories surrounding his scheduled appearance in the MCU. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier releases its first episode March 19.
Coming 2 America
A sequel that comes over three decades after the first installment, Coming 2 America continues the story of Eddie Murphy’s 1988 comedy, seeing the actor reprise his role as Zamundan royalty Akeem Joffer. The film sees Joffer go from Prince to King, only to travel to America in order to reconnect with a son he was previously unaware he had. The film is to be released on Amazon Prime Video March 5.
Disney Bundle Trailer
While it doesn’t provide any new or unseen footage, the Disney Bundle trailer does still tease something interesting – a bundle service offering a subscription to Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. With subscription-based services becoming more and more that way people consume the majority of their films and television, this could provide a healthy balance between regular scheduled TV, and individual subscription services – allowing for a range of media provided in one fell swoop.
