SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!
With the globe’s single largest sporting event taking place tonight, millions of viewers will be tuning in to see who will take the crown between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos.
However for film fanatics who may not be that keen on the game itself, some of the biggest blockbusters trailers will be showcased during the adverts in America (we’ll just have to go on YouTube).
This year’s line-up includes the likes of The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War, however one teaser which has been confirmed is the inclusion of the tribute to skier Michael Edwards, a.k.a Eddie the Eagle.
Starring Taron Egerton from Kingsman: The Secret Service, the film tells the story of how Britain’s first ever ski jumper to qualify for the Winter Olympics literally crashed into the limelight back in 1988.
Whilst the first full trailer was released back in December, this shortened clip contains the reactions of NFL stars such as Russell Wilson and Drew Brees who seem to rate it very highly.
Even though this may not be the biggest box office hit of 2016, I think the values of being the underdog are hugely relevant for this weekend’s match. This is most likely why Fox decided to use it as one of their two film commercial spots.
Eddie the Eagle is released in UK cinemas on 1st April, for the time being you can watch the Super Bowl trailer and the full version below.

There you are, not long till the Oscars! Let me know what you think of the results in the comments or send a tweet to @film_swot.
It’s finally here – the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War dropped today.
Pierce Brosnan has not held back in a recent interview with HitFix, in which he gave his opinion on the latest James Bond film Spectre, calling it “weak”.
Marvel has announced not only an Ant-Man sequel for 2017, but three untitled films for 2020.
Jennifer Lawrence has become one of the world’s most famous actresses in recent years. Following performances in The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook and also recent X-Men films, it will come as no surprise she is very much in demand. Fortunately for those wanting her for their movies, her X-Men contract is up after X-Men Apocalypse, and she has said it’ll be her last film in the franchise.
As we plough on through 2015, there is something to look forward to; summer blockbuster season. What makes this better is that one of the summer films released an official trailer today. That’s right folks, Mission Impossible 5 is on the horizon.
A sequel to Disney’s 2010 ‘TRON: Legacy’ will start production this Autumn.
This may come as a surprise to those who have seen the previous film. For those who haven’t, let me enlighten you.
Every year at the Oscars we make our predictions to whom will win the awards. This year I had all my money on Boyhood to win Best Picture. It felt obvious to me that this was the clear winner. But as Sean Penn read out the result, I let out a shocked “what?” and perhaps a swear word or two.
