In just under one month, the NFL champion will be crowned in Super Bowl XLIX, airing Sunday, February 1 on NBC, but many fans will be tuning in simply for the highly-anticipated commercials. ABC News reports that, as of now, Universal Pictures' upcoming summer sequel Jurassic World is the only movie confirmed to air new footage during the big game. We'll likely be hearing about more movie commercials being added to the Super Bowl XLIX lineup over the next few weeks, but Jurassic World joins other confirmed ads from companies such as Carnival Cruises and Skittles, both airing their first ever Super Bowl ads, along with Coca-Cola, McDonalds, Pepsi, Snickers, Doritos and GoDaddy.com.
Jurassic World unveiled its first trailer back in November, which was received quite well by fans. Chris Pratt leads a diverse cast in the sequel, starring alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy, Jake Johnson and Judy Greer. The story takes place 22 years after the original Jurassic Park, centering on a fully-functioning theme park with real dinosaurs, which is visited by millions of guests every year. The action takes place on Isla Nublar, where the first Jurassic Park was set. Colin Trevorrow directs this highly-anticipated adventure from a script he co-wrote with Derek Connolly.
ABC News also reports that advertisers are paying a whopping $4.5 million for a 30-second TV spot during Super Bowl XLIX, which is up 12.5% from last year's $4 million price tag.
