Of course this year's Super Bowl will be, as always, a conduit for excitement about all kinds of assorted crap, but perhaps that won't include a whole lot of movies. Variety finds that, so far, only two film ads have been confirmed for ad space during the game. To the humiliation of character-actor fans everywhere, one is for Disney's Wild Hogs, in which William H. Macy gets to be motorcycle buddies with Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, and John Travolta. Because watching that go down wasn't depressing enough already. The other, appropriately, is for the inspirational-true-story Pride, about an inner-city swim team in Philadelphia.
