Movie and television studios made big moves during Sunday’s big game by reserving prime airtime to promote their upcoming projects.

Throughout the four-hour Super Bowl broadcast, a number of new and existing movie and TV trailers played during the most-watched commercial breaks of the year. A majority of the previews were tied to Peacock, Universal Studios and NBC, which hosted the Super Bowl telecast.

From Marvel’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” to Universal’s “Jurassic World Dominion,” here’s a list of the promos that aired during the game, which saw the Los Angeles Rams triumph over the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium.


‘The Adam Project’

After recently releasing a sizzle reel of upcoming films — from “Knives Out 2” to “Enola Holmes 2” — Netflix spotlighted one title in particular during the Super Bowl. Directed by Shawn Levy, “The Adam Project” stars Ryan Reynolds as a time-traveling pilot on a mission to save the future.

Rounding out the main cast of the science fiction drama are Mark Ruffalo, Walker Scobell, Jennifer Garner, Catherine Keener and Zoe Saldaña. “The Adam Project” premieres March 11 on Netflix.

Hosted by Simon Cowell, Nikki Bella, Travis Pastrana and Terry Crews, “America’s Got Talent: Extreme” premieres Feb. 20 on NBC.



This is a story all about how NBC reserved multiple spots for its “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” revival, starring Jabari Banks, Jimmy Akingbola, Akira Jolie Akbar, Olly Sholotan, Cassandra Freeman, Adrian Holmes and Coco Jones.
