I really don't think them holding off on a trailer (for a reasonable amount of time, I might add) is going to equal a massive flop. Also, remember, we here as dedicated fans do not share the same perspective as the average audience. The marketing needs to win them over, not us (they've already got us), and starting early isn't always the best way.
I have to agree with you.
As much as I want them to 'feed the fans' by giving us a bit more, I have to stop and think we should just be damn grateful we are getting a movie at all, and even more grateful that it actually seems to be shaping up to be a great one.
The trailer will come when it comes. Pics will come when they come. The more we whine about it and focus on how long it's taking, the longer it'll be.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
