Hollywoodnews.com: You might not think this, but Super Bowl Sunday is like Film Geek Christmas. On this day, spread throughout a full day of NFL football, Cinema Santa unwraps our first looks at so many of the major blockbusters we will be writing and talking about all year. Long before the Internet housed leaked set footage and early trailer peeks, passionate movie fans flocied to the TV set on Super Bowl Sunday not to watch the game, but to see what trailers would run during the commercial breaks.

So what clips will we see this year?

Well, ComingSoon does a nice breakdown, creating a Super Bowl Sunday timeline based on information provided by The Hollywood Reporter. It looks like “Thor” and “Captain America” will have spots. So will Michael Bay’s third “Transformers” and the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Universal will unveil a “Cowboys & Aliens” tease, while families can look forward to “Kung Fu Panda 2” and “Rango” commercials.

Here’s the full list, and when you will see them:

Pre-Game Spots:
Battle: Los Angeles (Sony)
