I'll wait till the footage till I judge the footage, I'll go right ahead and judge a relatively late starting marketing campaign on it's lateness....when it's late.

You could sit there and say the exact same thing if Fox started marketing this film in early july, that wouldn't make it any more right. Neither would Mangold tweeting about showing up fashionably late for that matter. I have a good feeling about this movie but, starting 4 months out...I'm sure that's what everyone involved wanted.
No, you're making assumptions based on not having a trailer yet.

That means you didn't "actually know when it was coming out", and you were making assumptions based on movies coming out weeks earlier.

Their only competition that weekend is a Woody Allen movie. And again, how do you know we're not going to be getting innundated with promotions for this by the time next month gets here?

And you're assuming there's a more sordid backstory.

And you were involved in every facet of the production to know this, were you?

Look, being disappointed about not having a trailer is one thing. What you're doing is making assumptions based on wrong dates, and information that none of us know anything about. Seems silly.
