Super Bowl draws millions upon millions of people to their TV sets across this great nation, which makes this live sport’s event an advertising Mecca for movie trailers. With the Super Bowl commercials being one of the main events of the broadcast, who can think of a better time to spotlight a movie trailer and entice movie goers?
According to The Bleacher Report on Jan 30, broadcasting a thirty-second ad during the Super Bowl cost $4.5 million. That breaks down to $150,000 per second. More and more movie trailers are seen during the Super Bowl each year as that $4.5 million for 30 seconds of advertising has paid off for advertisers in the past.
The New York Times suggests that “a mere 112 million” people may tune-in to watch Super Bowl 2015. They also state that the audience is hard to gauge. Super Bowl 2014 was the fourth Super Bowl in a row to bring in more than 100 million viewers. Last year’s Seattle vs. Denver generated a record 112 million, which should repeat itself or grow bigger in numbers this year.
According to Sporting News on Jan. 30, some of the most anticipated movies are offering their trailers at Super Bowl 2015. One of the movies bringing their trailer to the masses at this year’s big game is “Fifty Shades of Grey.” This movie has been a long-time coming, but on Sunday night you will get a look at the film’s clips in this Super Bowl commercial spot.
“Furious 7” gives fans their final look at the late Paul Walker, who teams up with Vin Diesel for the last time in the “Fast and Furious” movie series. The trailer will air Sunday night and the movie will hit the box office on April 3. This movie trailer is much anticipated for other reasons, like folks getting a gander at Walker’s brothers who filled in for Paul after his death. Caleb and Cody Walker will make their debut in the “Fast and Furious” saga, as talked about in this Facebook post.
While the “Minions” look like they are just for kids, they’re not. They are as much fun to watch for parents as they are for their off-spring. You’ve seen them in the “Despicable Me” series and now they have a movie all their own. That movie trailer will air during Sunday night’s Super Bowl game.
Horror movies are big today and this new “Unfriended” movie fits the bill for a fright-night of movie watching. The trailer for this social media entwined horror flick will also air Sunday night. The “Seventh Son” will hit theaters on Feb. 6 and “Terminator Genisys” with Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t hit the theaters until July, but both will be seen in trailers during the broadcast of the Super Bowl.
“Ted 2,” “Jurassic World,” “SpongeBob Sponge Out of Water 3D” and “Tommorowland” trailers will all be seen on Sunday night’s broadcast. Right before the 2015 Super Bowl game starts “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” and “Kingsman: The Secret Service” are both set to air.
Besides the movie trailers, there are tons of commercials airing for the first time during the 2015 Super Bowl. Check out Kim Kardashian’s ad above where she is making fun of her infatuation with selfies! Some might say after watching the ad that this girl offers more assets than most!
