Some things were a bit different about the Super Bowl this year, from the lack of parties to the (slightly) less full stadium. However, one thing stayed the same: the commercial breaks were full of trailers for upcoming movies and plenty of ads with celebrities endorsing everything from mayo to spiked seltzer.
In case you skipped out on watching the big game this year, we’ve rounded up the can’t-miss Super Bowl trailers and commercials for pop culture enthusiasts.
THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER
The biggest news of the night for the fandom community? The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has a release date — March 19 — along with an official trailer and poster (pictured top).
