Which movie ads fared best during Sunday's Super Bowl telecast?

Transformers According to a poll over at MovieTickets.com, the ad for Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was the most memorable of the 10 movie trailers that aired during yesterday's Super Bowl XLIII telecast.

Over 83 percent of respondents remembered seeing the commercial, while 23 percent said it the most effective in encouraging them to see the film when it opens on June 26.

Coming in second place was J.J. Abrams' reboot of Star Trek,  in theaters, with 79 percent of respondents remembering it. The much-ballyhooed 3-D ad for Monsters Vs. Aliens came in third with 78 percent.

Here's how the rest of the ads fared. G.I. Joe is the only ad not available on NBC's website, but you can click on all the others to watch them.

Judging by the results, looks like Pixar has some marketing work to do, while Jack Black might start wondering if his 15 minutes are up.

4. Fast and Furious (77%)

5. Land of the Lost (75%)

6. Race to Witch Mountain (74%)

7. Angels and Demons (64%)

8. G.I. Joe (59%)

9. Up (48%)

10. Year One (34%)

I would agree. The Transformers ad was awesome and got me pumped up for that sequel in just 30 measly seconds. Very cool stuff. The G.I. Joe thing LOOKS like it could be a fun popcorn flick, but we'll see. Stephen Sommers isn't exactly known for making things that have high quality to them. And Star Trek is near tops of my list of films to see this year, mainly becuase I want to see if J.J. Abrams can bring new life to that dead franchise.

I'm sure by the time it comes out, Up will have more hype then it does now. It's Pixar, so that always helps. Though I doubt they can ever top Wall-E.

As for Angels and Demons, I still have to read that book. I have it here, just haven't gotten around to it. Everybody says its way better then Da Vinci code but we'll see. I'll start reading it after I finish reading Watchmen again.
