"Act of Valor" was just one of the movies to have a trailer air during the most watched TV show in U.S. history on Sunday – that would be the Super Bowl – and some are wondering how the film will impact the typically media shy Special Operations Forces.

Today's news you might've missed:
It's another boy for Robert Downey Jr. The 46-year-old actor and his wife Susan welcomed a son on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, CNN's confirmed.
The little one was born at 7:24 a.m., weighing in at 7 pounds and 5 ounces. The proud parents named their new addition Exton Elias Downey. With a name like that, we're sure Exton will have no trouble fitting in in Hollywood.
Dad Downey already has visions of stardom for his progeny, after all. When asked what he'd say to his unborn son back in December, the actor replied, "Are you ready for your close-up?"
Although it's the first child for Downey and Susan, the "Iron Man" star does have an 18-year-old son, Indio, from a previous marriage.
NBC execs must be feeling some vindication for the relentless promotion they did for their midseason drama, "Smash."

Three dates were on tap for Ben and the nine remaining ladies this week - a one-on-one date, a group outing and the dreaded two-on-one, where one or both of the ladies chosen could go home before the date concludes.
Kacie B. gets the one-on-one, and she's told to "pack three things." Courtney the model is hopeful that Ben is thinning the herd, proudly noting that "two things" can occur during the Kacie B. date. Well, Ben could quit the show, so that's a third option right there.
One of the Super Bowl’s most buzzed-about ads – a Chrysler commercial in which Clint Eastwood growls about the recovery of the Detroit auto industry – was not actually filmed in the city it hails as “fighting again.”
In fact, it was filmed in several locations, including New Orleans, Los Angeles and parts of Northern California, according to Chrysler spokeswoman Dianna Gutierrez.
Were politics buried inside Eastwood's 'Halftime' commercial?
In the two-minute advertisement, Eastwood declares that “It’s halftime, America,” and urges the country to follow in the footsteps of Detroit in rising from the recession.
