Transformers: Rise of the Beasts
Next up we have the newest installment in the Transformers franchise, Rise of the Beasts. It stars the Dino bots from the Beast Wars storyline. 90s kids will remember the TV show Beast Wars. Super Bowl commercials wouldn’t be complete without a Transformers trailer.

Complete with a 90s-style hip-hop track that brings back memories of the fresh prince. It advertises the brothers’ plumbing business. There are rumors that they have lives in the “real world” and get transported to the mushroom kingdom at some point in the movie so this might be the real-world aspect of the movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3
Next up is the final installment to the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Fast X, also known as fast and the furious 10 is next featuring Vin Deisel reprising his role as Dom Toretto as he must protect his crew and family from cipher has now joined forces with Deonte, the son of a drug kingpin.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (5)
Next, we have the 5th Indiana jones film. The first film in the series that is not directed by Steven Spielberg or written by George Lucas, as they step back into executive producer roles instead.

It takes place in 1969 when Indiana Jones lives against the backdrop of the Space Race. Jones is uneasy over the fact that the U.S. government has recruited former Nazis to help beat the Soviet Union in the competition to make it to space. His goddaughter, Helena, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, goes with him on his journey.
