A special version of the trailer showcasing the bhangra song was also made for a Super Bowl XLVI commercial seen and heard by a record 111.3 million viewers in the most-watched television show in U.S. history.
The World Premiere red carpet arrivals will be screened live into the participating cinemas so the audience can enjoy the celebrity arrivals, red carpet interviews, and of course a very special appearance from Admiral General Aladeen himself.
