Super Bowl movie trailers: What are you excited to see?

Super Bowl fans (or fans of the Super Bowl commercials), what were your favorite movie trailers shown during the game on Sunday? Out of all the movie trailers shown I think I am most excited to see Robin Hood. The Super Bowl trailer was the first footage I saw from that movie and it looks awesome. I am also looking forward to the new Alice in Wonderland.

The Wolfman (February 12)
A remake of 1941's The Wolf Man starring Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, and Emily Blunt, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Shutter Island (February 19)
