Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige star in the cinematic Super Bowl trailer – ‘The Call’

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on January 20, 2022

The epic clip directed by F. Gary Gray features the legendary hip hop figures assembling to join Dre to conquer Los Angeles.

Among the biggest stages in the world, The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show managed to level up yet again when the NFL announced that a rare performance from Dr. Dre was on deck for the 56th edition of gala on the gridiron,.

Adding to the starpower of the event, Dre’s performance would include a multi-generational ensemble cast of creative cohorts, with Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige completing what will no doubt be quite the spectacle.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated performance, the NFL has dropped a cinematic quality trailer that borrows from the superhero aesthetic of major Marvel and DC franchise hits to frame the stars of the Halftime Show as an unstoppable musical mega force – think if the Avengers has swag,

The visual depicts Dre controlling the Los Angeles skyscrapers like mythical chessboard and he summons his specialized team of contributors. Eminem is featured opposite his “Stan” doppleganger arranging bars on a motion screen. Kendrick Lamar is featured feverishly penning line after line of lyrics. Mary J. brings the glamour to the group, interrupting a photoshoot to tend to more pressing matters with the Doc. Last but not least, Snoop Dogg is seen hitting that three-wheel motion through the streets of the city, when he get a notification on his phone and quickly changes course.

The trailer is brilliantly pieced together with the kind of blockbuster appeal that aligns with the massive collection of starpower that will convene on Sofi Stadium on February 13th. The show is the third consecutive production helmed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and follows a successful execution of last year’s show from The Weeknd and the first during their tenure with Shakira and Jennifer Lopez in Miami.

Super Bowl LVI takes place on February 13th. Watch ‘The Call’ directed by F. Gary Gray below.
