Variety has published a report stating that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and G.I. Joe are likely to get Super Bowl spots on February 1st, but a spot for Wolverine is still up in the air:
Confirmed for this year’s roster are high-profile titles like Paramount’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” “Star Trek” and “G.I. Joe”; Sony’s “Angels & Demons”; DreamWorks Animation’s “Monsters vs. Aliens”; and Universal’s “Land of the Lost” and its fourth installment in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise. Disney is also planning to use the game to raise the profile for Pixar’s next toon, “Up,” while a “Wolverine” spot is likely from Fox.
As of Thursday, Fox had yet to buy any time during the game. Should it do so at the last minute, “Wolverine,” “Night at the Museum 2” and “Ice Age” are the pics it’s most likely to promote.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros. hasn’t bought a spot and may not at all, even with “Terminator Salvation,” “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and “Watchmen” â€” pics that would all appeal to the Super Bowl crowd â€” on its upcoming release sked.
Stay tuned for when these Super Bowl spots come online.
