Aside from Lady Gaga's insane half-time performance and the customary beer ads, there were plenty of other side attractions at Super Bowl LI. Chief among them were the new summer-blockbuster trailers that got play during the commercial breaks.
The new Baywatch trailer packed plenty of action... as well as laughs. C.J.'s slow-mo jog got a self-referential joke, Priyanka Chopra still makes for a lethal bad girl and Zac Efron and The Rock provide the only #gymgoals you'll need in 2017.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 got an extended TV spot, which ran through all the various characters of the galactic action/comedy flick. Zoe Saldana is still mean in green, as Gamora, and Chris Pratt is still ready with plenty of one-liners as Star-Lord.
We got to see a bit more of Charlize Theron's villainous character in a new trailer for The Fate of the Furious. She's so good at being bad she managed to convince Dominic to go rogue.
Scarlett Johansson gave us a taste of her lethal cyborg character in a Ghost in the Shell TV spot. The film, an adaption from a Japanese magna, has the feel of Blade Runner meets The Matrix.
The Transformers 5 trailer seems moodier than previous entries, perhaps suggesting Michael Bay's latest sequel may be more than Victoria's Secret models and Autobot action.
Another sequel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, had pirates walking on water, maritime warfare and more idiosyncrasies from Captain Jack Sparrow.
