Posted on

Dennis QuaidThe Super Bowl is always a super week for movie trailers: Movie studios like nothing better than a captive audience of 111 million amped-up TV watchers to show off their latest wares. During last Sunday’s game, we got peeks at J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, the new Captain America, and Thor, to name a few. But the week still had more goods in store, with first looks at movies like X-Men: First Class, Arthur, and Disney’s Prom. Check them all out below, and then sound off in the comments about which ones are going on your to-watch list!
