Super Bowl Sunday: the one time of the year (yes, including Christmas), where America puts aside its petty differences like whether you voted for a neo-fascist or not. Who cares about that when the big game’s on guys?

Because not only do you get some serious SPORT and a chance to yell ‘USA USA’ at the telly during the undoubtedly oversung national anthem, but you also get a useful guide to every new movie that the big players are lining up to throw at you over the coming year.
