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.

22 Jump Street
Ordinarily, we're wary of sequels especially for comedies (we love you Will Ferrell, but "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" has a huge bar to hit), but we'll say this: the first red band trailer for "22 Jump Street" made us laugh. A lot.

So, people are actually excited by this, I suppose? The Farrellys, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have reunited and are shooting "Dumber And Dumber To" and ha ha funny title, because it's spelled wrong and is not a number. First look set images have flown around the interwebs this past week, sparking nostalgia in the hearts of those who remember the 1994 original, while anyone twenty and under wondered who those two weirdos were with the bad haircuts. And it seems even Oscar winners are getting in on the action.

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have long recognized just how funny Rob Riggle is, casting him in their projects like "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby," "Step Brothers" and "The Other Guys." Now, they are rallying behind the actor to give him the lead role he's so long deserved on a pretty amazing sounding comedy project.

Review: 'The Lorax' Is Cute But Weighed Down By Its Faithfulness To The Source Material

Adapting a children's book, especially one as beloved (and brief) as Dr. Seuss' gentle eco-fable "The Lorax," is an unenviable task. There's a sliver of narrative that must be expanded, padded, and teased out, while an attempt must be made to maintain all of the things that people love about Dr. Seuss (nee Theodor Geisel) and his books – the sing-songy rhythm, the loop-de-loop design work, the easy surrealism. In short: it's kind of a bitch. Or a snitch. Or a sliver-de-glitch. But the good folks at Illumination Entertainment (who made a surprise hit out of the decidedly under-the-radar "Despicable Me") have done a respectable job bringing "The Lorax" to the screen. It's just a shame that the fidelity to the source material, on both narrative and design levels, seems to have taken the steam out of something that could have been truly special.

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner and by the looks of it out there, agents, PR folks and news leakers have already left for the weekend so let's rewind to something we missed earlier in the week while we're all lamenting the fact that a horrible sequel is set to gross over a $100 million this weekend, sadly.
