JOHANNESBURG - Ah, the Super Bowl – a time for families in the United States (US) to come together and watch what I presume to be American football. 

Over the years, it’s become one of the few remaining symbols of American patriotism that’s often watched by over 100 million TV screens across the country. Yet, I could not tell you one single thing about it.

According to a quick Google search, apparently the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl LVIII, so go them!

However, what I can tell you is because of how widely viewed it is and its accompanying halftime show, headlined by Usher in 2024, the Super Bowl, for many around the globe, is one of the biggest pop culture events of the year.

Each year, the half-time show is headlined by some of the world’s biggest musicians – from Beyoncé to Prince to Michael Jackson – and companies pay millions to promote their products during the ad breaks. As a film buff at heart, other than the halftime show, what I tend to be excited for the most are the trailer or teaser drops for some of the year’s upcoming movies. 

Despite them being surrounded by a myriad of other products vying for the viewer’s attention, trailer drops during the Super Bowl is an almost fool-proof plan on the promotional side alone and because of social media, this reach is enhanced even further.

And 2024 certainly did not disappoint, with trailers being dropped for some of the year’s biggest cinematic releases, including Deadpool 3 (now Deadpool & Wolverine), Wicked Part 1, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, The Fall Guy, Kung Fu Panda 4, and Monkey Man (the one I am personally looking forward to the most in a very long line-up of sequels and adaptations).

Here's a list of all the trailers that were dropped during Superbowl LVIII:
