Regardless of personal preference, few will deny that, to many, the Super Bowl is practically a federal holiday. According to the NFL, the annual event has a potential worldwide audience of roughly one billion people across 200 different countries, and at any given time, boasts between 80-90 million American viewers.

Likewise, it isn’t shocking that movie studios willingly pay big bucks–$4 million bucks, to be exact—for their 30 seconds of fame. And though this bill may appear hefty, the payoff is equally immense—your upcoming blockbuster is advertised in front of everyone and their grandmother, all across the globe.

Looking ahead, 2014 is already shaping up to be a great year for the film industry, with tons of huge releases, and undoubtedly many surprises, looming on the horizon. Presently, it’s impossible to say what will flop and what will not, but, thanks to Variety, we now know for certain what movies you can expect to see advertised during the broadcast. The full list can be found below:

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2
  • Transformers: Age of Extinction
  • Draft Day 
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  • Need for Speed 

Also bear in mind that the network airing the Super Bowl is allotted a number of time slots as well, so don’t be surprised if Fox makes use of this opportunity to additionally promote Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or X-Men: Days of Future Past, though currently, neither has been confirmed.
