Evaluating the Super Bowl movie trailers

I didn’t watch the Super Bowl yesterday, because football has always been sort of a mystery to me, and because I had to watch “The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp” on DVD, in preparation for an interview this week. (For all Powell/Pressburger fans: note that Thelma Schoonmaker will be at SAM next month, March 6 and 7, to present “Colonel Blimp” — in a newly restored version — and “Peeping Tom.”) So all I saw of yesterday’s big event were a few furtive peeks at the Puppy Bowl — but I’d be curious to hear, from those of you who watched the game, what you thought about the trailers for upcoming movie shown during the breaks. New York Magazine has all the ads here: “Battleship,” “John Carter,” “Act of Valor,” “The Lorax,” “The Avengers,” “G.I.Joe 2: Retaliation,” “The Dictator,” and “The Hunger Games.” Anybody impressed by what they saw? Unimpressed? Which one are you most eager to see? (I bet it’s “The Hunger Games,” isn’t it?)
