Han Solo, James Bond, Terminator Add More Star Power To Super Bowl Sunday

By Barry Janoff

January 6, 2015: What does it take to make a big splash during the Big Game?

While real athletes will be on the field in the University of Phoenix Stadium will be seeking to win Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, broadcast network NBC will be airing movie studio commercials filled with robots, mutants and other-worldly humans seeking to: a) Protect Earth of today b) Protect Earth of the future c) Protect a world that is not Earth but metaphorically, philosophically and grammatically, resembles Earth.

This should be a landmark year for Hollywood, with releases scheduled to include such iconic franchises as Star Wars, The Terminator (pictured right), Avengers, Jurassic Park/World, Hunger Games, Mad Max and Bond, James Bond.

Following is a Baker's Dozen of films that might likely get air time during Super Bowl XLIX.

Past history, and this line early in the movie, lets you know how that evolves: "If something chases you, run."
