The 2020 Super Bowl is officially over, but there’s still plenty of entertainment to look forward to in the coming weeks — and Sunday’s many commercial breaks wouldn’t let viewers forget it.

Amid the onslaught of $5.6-million ads, a host of movie and TV teaser trailers snuck their way into the broadcast, including teasers for high-profile projects such as “A Quiet Place: Part II,” “No Time to Die,” “Black Widow” and “Mulan,” as well as the new Marvel offshoots coming to Disney+.

Check out the big-game previews rounded up below for an idea of what’s coming to big and small screens later this year.
