I know I sound like a broken record, but we'll get something either this week or the next, before CinemaCon.

We're never getting anything. Not even a movie. We've all died and gone to some specific version of hell made for Superman fans!

Did you know Monsters University (the film that will make sure MOS is #1 only for a week) already has 8 character posters? Pacific Rim which comes out a month after has 5. Kick-Ass 2 (August) and Catching Fire (Out in November) also have a bunch. Even After Earth has two, a film that, if the Will Smith trend continues, will steal some of MOS's earnings. Hope this info makes you feel better!

I know we are getting the posters this month, I just wish we could get them now so people will stop talking about toys and halloween costumes as if those things are 100% representitive of how costumes will look on film with proper lighting and all that other magical movie stuff.

Agreed. I want all this silly "terrible marketing" and "box office bomb" talk to stop. It's incredibly repetitive, especially when we're getting stuff in the next week.

I don't think I'm the one who's mad.

Also, honest advice, learn how to take a joke.

I'm sure it'll look fine in the film though, and i'll get used to it
Thats what happened to me when I first saw Halle Berry's Catwoman costume.

As the months wind down, you are bound to be true. For example, I can say a specific person is gonna die next week, I will be right eventually.

Its not that silly. Its a valid criticism.

I don't think MOS will be a bomb, but I think it could have a mediocre box office.

WB is going to wait until the IM3 and Star Trek hype dies down. The middle of April at the earliest is when we will get something. But I have a feeling we will have to wait until the beginning of May.

So do you think MoS will be #2 or #3 on its second weekend? Will WWZ bomb or have a good weekend as much as or more than MoS second weekend?

The Star Trek hype will still be building at that time... in fact it will be even more intense. The Iron Man 3 hype may still be around at that time if the film is good. It seems to me that the beginning of May would be the peak of the hype for those films, and the worst possible time to try to do a last-minute marketing blitz.

Its better to start early and build momentum.

I don't really understand that strategy, if that is what they're doing. Do they think people aren't able to process the fact that multiple big budget movies come out in the summertime?

No, apparently people can only be excited about one movie at a time

Its one of those defending-WB's-marketing arguments that makes zero sense.

I agree. WB needs to start marketing and it better be soon. Because if they wait to long they are going to get swamped.

April 14 is 2 months before the film comes out. That should be the time we see a new trailer. But I doubt it, WB has their heads up their ass right now.
