Music and Media News: Super Bowl Ads and Goldenthal Premiere
Our post Super Bowl media news this week covers the advertisements that played alongside the game. We also cover one composer’s world premiere, the first trailer of an all-time horror classic and keeping with the horror theme — one of the genre’s greatest directors shares his list of best movie soundtracks.
The NFL website was ground zero for the news before, during and after the Super Bowl. But, that’s not the only important element of Super Bowl that can be found there! Every major commercial played during the broadcast can be viewed. They even group them chronologically by which quarter they were played on.
As of this moment, the Snickers “Brady Bunch” starring Danny Trejo is the highest rated advertisement on the site.
