MINNEAPOLIS (GUARDIAN) - Aside from the American football action on the field, the Super Bowl on Sunday (Feb 5 morning, Singapore) also scored with a stack of new trailers teasing some of the year's biggest films and shows.

Here is a look at what Hollywood dropped:

Solo: A Star Wars Story

A troubled production (the original directors were removed late in the game and replaced with Ron Howard) has meant that the publicity machine for the Han Solo origin adventure has started up at a rather late stage.

But this first, impressive spot suggests that fans might have been worrying for nothing.

The trailer offers a brief look at the stellar cast, including Woody Harrelson and Donald Glover, and some splashy action.

Can someone go check on Dwayne Johnson?

He is coming off a schedule that has him top-lining three major movies in the space of seven months. The third (after Jumanji 2 and April's video game-inspired actioner Rampage) is the oddly dated-looking Skyscraper, a film that would have starred Arnie or Sly back in the late 1980s. That final stunt does look like quite the doozy though.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

After his failed Dark Universe non-starter The Mummy, Tom Cruise is feeling the need for the Mission: Impossible franchise to return like never before.

The series continues to be a reliable money-maker and, for the sixth instalment, he is hoping his high-octane showing off will at least temporarily catapult him back to the top. The first trailer looks like more of the same, with some new recruits (hello Angela Bassett and Henry Cavill) but the final stunt, typically what sells each film, does not look quite as incredible as previous attempts.

Castle Rock

After the mega-success of It, Stephen King has teamed up with Hulu and JJ Abrams for Castle Rock, a new series which intertwines many of his stories and characters. The second teaser shows off the nifty cast, including Moonlight's Andre Holland, Don't Breathe's Jane Levy, Melanie Lynskey and King returnees Sissy Spacek and It's Bill Skarsgard, and gives subtle teases of the spookiness to come.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

After the first trailer teased bigger dino action than ever before, this flashy new Super Bowl spot gives a more horror-based look at the summer sequel. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning along with an island full of unwanted beasts and for those who worried the last preview focused on just the bigger action scenes, this one has some of the more intimate creepy sequences that made the original film so successful.

The Avengers: Infinity War

One of the most anticipated trailers offered a look at the overdose of superheroes who will be teaming up in the next Avengers movie. Black Panther! Doctor Strange! Spider-Man! The Guardians lot! It is a dream for anyone who thought that Captain America: Civil War could have done with a few more major Marvel characters. For everyone else, well, it might prove a bit of a headache.
