Sure, snow is covering the ground. That doesn't mean it's too early to start thinking about summer blockbusters.
A handful of sure-to-be-ginormous movies debuted trailers during the Super Bowl on Sunday. Among them:

"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," June 22
It's been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who's still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs-along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Stars Pratt and Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom." They are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.
Directed by J.A. Bayona ("The Impossible"), the epic action-adventure is written by "Jurassic World's" director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.
"Skyscraper," July 13
Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary's "Skyscraper" as former FBI hostage rescue team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China, he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he's been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building ... above the fire line.
Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ("Central Intelligence"), the 3-D action-thriller is produced by Beau Flynn ("San Andreas"), Johnson, Thurber and Hiram Garcia ("San Andreas").
"Skyscraper" executive producers are Dany Garcia ("Baywatch"), Wendy Jacobson ("San Andreas"), Eric McLeod ("Kong: Skull Island," "Pirates of the Caribbean" series) and Eric Hedayat ("Real Steel"). The film will be released by Universal Pictures.
"Mission: Impossible - Fallout," July 27
The best intentions often come back to haunt you. "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett and Vanessa Kirby also join the cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.
On Oct. 7, 2017, a group of more than 80 actors and filmmakers came together in secret in Atlanta on the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" to memorialize the past 10 years with a photo and to celebrate the accomplishments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
