Last night, a game was played, and a team won and a team lost, and Seattle seemed to be super happy for some reason. But for our purposes, the Super Bowl means lot of new trailers (including "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and the first teaser for "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" among others) and of course, lots of celeb talent getting paid big bucks to sell things. So, clear away the bones from last night's chicken wings and check out the below.

Parkland
Ever since "PT 109," which detailed his WWII war record and was released while he was still in office, President John F. Kennedy has been catnip to Hollywood. After all, he was good looking, charismatic, had a dark secret life of womanising, among other things, and of course, was assassinated three years into his presidency—an event that inspires debate and conspiracy theories to this day. He's been the subject of great films (Oliver Stone's "JFK") and bad ones (recent miniseries "The Kennedys"), and been played by everyone from Cliff Robertson to James Marsden (in "Lee Daniels' The Butler"). This November marks the 50th anniversary of his assassination in Dealey Plaza, and as such, it was inevitable that there'd be some kind of film to mark the occasion. We just wish it wasn't as terrible as "Parkland."

Karl Urban Minka Kelly JJ Abrams TV Robot Cops
We’ll never be able to comprehend just how he finds the time, but every week it sounds like we’re reading about another J.J Abrams project, so it's very easy to lose track of them all. One of his TV projects -- which formerly went by the title of “Inhuman,” but is now going simply by “Human” – is busy casting its pilot for Fox at the moment, and it looks like Karl Urban will be joining the already-cast Michael Ealy as one of the leads.

After bringing a board game to life in this summer's bellyflop "Battleship," Peter Berg decided to give himself another challenge, one arguably harder than bringing a board game to the big screen: he has to make you belive that Adam Levine is a sensitive boxer. That's right, block your ears, because the new single by Maroon 5 "One More Night" is here with Minka Kelly filling in the role of the requisite piece of arm candy.

While "Precious" helmer Lee Daniels is nominally in Cannes at the moment to promote the debut of the follow up to his Oscar-nominee, "The Paperboy," which screens tomorrow morning (keep your eyes peeled for our review), it seems the director also intends to leak out casting news for his upcoming project, "The Butler." Earlier this week, it was revealed that Daniels would reunite with his "Paperboy" star Nicole Kidman on the project, and now Daniels has revealed that "Friday Night Lights" star Minka Kelly and "Precious" actor Lenny Kravitz have been added to the growing ensemble of "The Butler" as well.
