Super Bowl 47 took place this Sunday, and between all the pre-show banter, hilarious beer ads and car commercials, there was a football game! (Ba-zing!) Bad jokes — and sports — aside, the year’s biggest game of the season provided the opportunity for movie studios to show off their most-anticipated releases of 2013.

This year, we have 30-second spots for “Oz, The Great and Powerful,” “Iron Man 3,” “Oblivion,” “Fast and Furious 6,” “Snitch,” “World War Z,” “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “The Lone Ranger.” Below, we’ve compiled all of the trailers and ranked which movies we’re most excited for.


  • ‘Snitch’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 02/22/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> A teenager gets sentenced to prison for a decade, so his father — The Rock — turns into an undercover informant to take down the drug cartel that set him up. <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> Meh (we have our sites set on another Rock-starring movie that appears later in this slideshow)

  • ‘The Lone Ranger’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 07/03/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> The most-recent revamp of the Americana classic stars the caroonishly handsome Armie Hammer as the masked crusader and a very made-up Johnny Depp as his trusty companion, Tonto. <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> Eh. How long can we watch Johnny Depp act weird in makeup?

  • ‘World War Z’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 06/21/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> The adaptation of Max Brooks’s novel imagines quick-footed zombies taking over the world. The only man for the job? Family man — and we’re assuming some one-time decorated solider? — Brad Pitt. <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> Moderate to high. It’s Brad Pitt in a zombie movie, so it’s guaranteed to be at least halfway decent.

  • ‘Oz, the Great and Powerful’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 03/08/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> James Franco stars as Oscar Diggs, a conniving magician who has his own black-and-white tornado-of-sorts and ends up in the world of Oz and attempts to become the great wizard of his dreams. <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> High. This story is set before the events of “The Wizard of Oz,” as we get to see how the man from Kansas became THEΩ powerful wizard.

  • ‘Fast and Furious 6’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 05/24/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> Hobbs (The Rock) recruits fugitives Dom (Vin Diesel) and the rest of the gang to take down a group of lethal mercenary drivers in exchange for pardons. <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> Turbo-booster high. Forget the critics. These films have always been entertainment and full of action, which is exactly what you want in a movie called “Fast and Furious.”

  • ‘Iron Man 3’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 05/03/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) returns in this third installment of “Iron Man.” This time around, he’s facing off against his most powerful enemy yet: the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> Through the roof. Robert Downey Jr. is back once again as Tony Stark. If that weren’t enough, the movie’s villain, the Mandarin, is being played by Sir Ben Kingsley.

  • ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’

    <strong>Release Date:</strong> 05/17/2013 <strong>What It’s About:</strong> Kirk, Spock and the rest of the gang are back for J.J. Abrams’s intergalactic sequel. Here, our heroes return home to “find an unstoppable force of terror,” as they go up against villain John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). <strong>Excitement Level:</strong> !!!!!!!.
