Super Bowl Sunday is a lot like Christmas morning for movie geeks. In between breathless updates on Deflategate, we are able to "unwrap" new footage from a full slate of pending, effects-driven blockbusters… well, the ones that were able to spend millions on a 30-second TV spot showcasing their wares.

Not every 2015 blockbuster needs a Super Bowl spot. Hollywood knows that you’re already sold on The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World (and the latter already confirmed its presence on the Super Bowl airwaves). Why waste money preaching to the choir? Instead, these are the 10 movies on Hollywood’s release schedule that could use a Super Bowl boost. Maybe they aren’t on your radar yet? Maybe a studio showed some footage, and it didn’t go over as well as planned? Super Bowl Sunday could be Salvation Sunday if these films play their cards right and blow us away with a memorable trailer we are forced to talk about next Monday.

A no-brainer, particularly because Paramount just shifted the action sequel’s release date up several months from December to July 31. My guess is because production on Christopher McQuarrie’s action-thriller is humming along beautifully, so what better way to announce the arrival of the next Ethan Hunt adventure than with an explosive Super Bowl spot showing Tom Cruise in the latest eye-popping stunt set piece? The move to July makes me think there’s enough footage shot to cut together a winning TV spot. Your mission, Paramount, should you choose to accept it…
