Even if you’re not a football fan, watching Super Bowl is still a highlight every year. Besides tuning in to get your groove on during the Halftime Show (weren’t Coldplay, Bruno Mars, and Beyonce amazeballs?!), it’s a must that we check out the newest TV commercials.
Interestingly, this year, movie trailers also took the main stage. In addition to the new teaser for (Disney) Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, 20th Century Fox also debuted new commercials for several films during this year’s Super Bowl, including Eddie the Eagle, Deadpool, X-Men Apocalypse, and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.
