The Big Game is over, but a big year for movies is only just beginning! Thankfully, we now have a better idea of what to expect from some of 2018’s most anticipated blockbusters. From our first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story to Tom Cruise and the gang’s return in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, we’ve gathered all the TV spots and trailers for your convenience below.
Films are listed in order of their release date. Also, you can find a complete playlist of the trailers here.“>
The Cloverfield Paradox (Tonight!)
The most pleasant surprise of the evening had to be the TV spot for The Cloverfield Paradox, a film we didn’t even know the official title for before the game. This is the third film in the J.J. Abrams-produced Cloverfield series and promises to shed light on what happened in New York City a decade ago. As if that wasn’t enough, Netflix teased it was “coming very soon.” How soon? By the time you’re reading this, it should be available on Netflix!
Red Sparrow (March 2)
Russian spy Dominika Egorova (played by Jennifer Lawrence) was given a choice: die, or become a Sparrow. Obviously, she chose the latter. There is so much intrigue and tension packed into this TV spot as Lawrence adds what looks to be another ambitious role to her resume. Joel Edgerton, Mary-Louise Parker, Jeremy Irons, Charlotte Rampling and Matthias Shoenaerts co-star. The wait for Red Sparrow is now less than a month.
A Quiet Place (April 6)
“If they hear you, they hunt you.” The first trailer for A Quiet Place made great use of silence, and this spot follows suit. The film follows a family living in fear of an unknown threat that attacks anyone who makes a sound. Emily Blunt and John Krasinski star in this clever horror exercise.
Avengers: Infinity War (May 4)
We are mere months away from the nineteenth entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will undoubtedly be the biggest superhero movie of all-time. This 30-second spot is devoted to showing us all the heroes involved before ending on a final, menacing glance from their adversary Thanos. Did that give anybody else the chills? Tony Stark says it best: “It’s all been leading to this.”
Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25)
We finally got a glimpse of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the second anthology film from the galaxy far, far away, and it is sure to dispel any apprehensions. We get our first (albeit obscured) look at Solo himself, played by Alden Ehrenreich, alongside everybody’s favorite Wookiee. But it’s Donald Glover as a young, stoic Lando Calrissian who steals the trailer. Hungry for more? Well, you don’t have to wait long. A full trailer for Solo drops tomorrow!
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22)
The fangs and claws are out and on full display in the sequel to 2015’s mega-hit Jurassic World. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt are back for more dino action – namely, saving the island’s wildlife from a volcano. Series favorite Jeff Goldblum is also returning for another adventure.
Skyscraper (July 13)
It’s Dwayne Johnson’s world and we’re all just living in it. Hot off the success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (which is still topping the domestic box office) and with Rampage just a few months away, it’s crazy to think Johnson will also be toppling multiplexes this summer in Skyscraper. Destined to be an international success, this is a hostage thriller set in China with all the outrageous spectacle you’d expect to see. Also, this is easily the best use of a prosthetic leg in a Super Bowl trailer this year.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout (July 27)
The only full-length trailer to drop during the game was for the sixth outing in Paramount’s beloved Mission: Impossible series (a.k.a. “What crazy stunt is Tom Cruise attempting these days?”). Christopher McQuarrie is the first director to return to the franchise, which bodes well for fans of Rogue Nation. This trailer sets a grim stage before pushing the pedal to the metal with some wildly entertaining set pieces. To quote Ving Rhames, “Same old Ethan.” And that’s a good thing!
