Playing 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' and 'Fate of the Furious' Debut Bonkers New Trailers During Super Bowl LI

While the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots battled it out on the gridiron during Super Bowl LI, some of the craziest action came courtesy of a few new movie trailers for the long-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and The Fate of the Furious.

The new sneak peek at GOTG Vol. 2 served as a roll call of sorts, reminding us of all the major players (and why we fell in love with them). While it didn't give away much in terms of plot, it did give us an action-packed look at what we can anticipate.

However, the Guardians of the Galaxy weren't the only team of fast talking, gun-fighting badasses to steal the spotlight. In the trailer for The Fate of the Furious -- the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise -- we get a better look at series' trademark insane action sequences, as well as a better understanding of the story.

Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel, who's also part of the GOTG universe), has turned to the dark side and teamed up with Cipher (Charlize Theron) to commit crimes, apparently. So Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Toretto's former crew are ordered to team up with their Furious 7 rival Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) to bring him down.

Again, the best part of the trailer is getting a sneak peek at the sequences that have set the Fast and Furious movies apart from all other action franchises. Some highlights include:
