Is the Hulk in trouble even before the first ticket has been purchased?

:up: Can we get a standing ovation? Your post is more or less what I'd always like to say, but can't say because I'm a regular. lol



But that's precisely what I'm disputing. We only "know" the marketing starts early, because for the most part, that's all we've ever seen. At least in recent memory. If you go back just two decades, I imagine you would find the marketing much more downscaled... and some of those movies STILL rank highest in terms of ticket sales. Lots of people have commented on here over the years about how it was "in the old days," so you probably "know" what I'm talking about. The problem I'm having with this whole issue is people starting with the presupposition that we "know" the marketing starts early and then building off of that notion to then say, "It's not a good marketing strategy." Well, no... it's only your belief that it's not a good marketing strategy. And how one even comes to determine whether or not it WAS a good marketing strategy is somewhat sketchy. I mean, what constitutes "good marketing"? If my standard is $200 million in gross domestic revenue and yours is $300 million, and the Hulk only performs at $205 million, then we have a disagreement. I say it was good and you say it was ineffective. What gives?

To me, it always come back to what we believe about the movie. If you're someone who's under the impression that it's been a poor marketing strategy thus far, so be it. Chances are you'll be disappointed in the end, with that negative sort of thinking infecting the rest of your mind.


I'm just saying I want this film to do well. I am a huge Marvel fan and don't want the GA to skip this because of the last film.

I never said it needs 'in your face' advertising 6+ months in advance, but it would have been nice to get a quick teaser a month or two ago to let the GA know about it.

Hopefully, the sudden last minute marketing plan of theirs works and gets the GA excited. I am looking forward to seeing this movie either way. I just want it to perform well in a year filled with other films we know are going to make bank(IJ4, Harry Potter).
 
i love reading these posts by overhyped geeks thinking they deserve something just cause they seem to think so...get the hell over it and just realize you'll have something anytime now and you'll be more than happy to take it when it comes...so just have patience you geeks argueing over nothing and talk about how awesome itll be to see a reasonably well acted and well thought out version of our favourite green goliath. also keep in mind, which im sure you do everyday coming on these boards, that your MORE than lucky to even have a chance to see this film be made again. just because youve sat on your ass for the last 10 years seeing comic movies be marketed and your acredited marketing skills according to soooooooo many of you this doesnt mean that you know the plans and directions of a film. i know personally id rather be swamped out of nowhere with new images that get me excited instead of a slow dribble of b.s ruining a perfectly good film because we all know too much. suck it up princesses and realize youll still be there opening night with soda in hand and hulk shirts on your back...

Nah. We don't "know" that any more than we "know" that Marvel's strategy will not pay off, as some are driven to believe. All we "know" are what we're familiar with, and familiarity breeds contempt, as we all "know." The fact that people are wondering "what the he## is going on" is just that - people wondering what the he## is going on. People being impatient and un-"know"ledgeable as it were, not knowing what actually IS going on.

Hi BH,

I was just trying to make a point that other superhero films like SM3 and TDK have started marketing as far as a year from release, that is all I was saying. I, like you, have no idea if the marketing strategy for TIH will pay off, it could, it could work very well and blow everybody away, we won't know until it starts and until the film is released. You are right, most of us Hulk fans have no idea what actually is going on, and even if some people are impatient, it isn't going to speed anything up, it will happen when it happens, personally I will watch the movie when it is released, marketing or not.

Hi CJ,

I have been away for a month so I am trying to catch up on everything, but if what you have said is true and they are having some problems with the SFX, then I have no problem at all with them pushing the movie back, do it right or don't do it at all.

Such articulated comments from a frustrated Hulk fan who clearly has some deep, emotional conflicts with his sexuality. Clever name too...
 
Easy now. No need to lower yourself to insults.
 
Now that I think of it, didn't we already get the full working script somewhere in the region of 2 months ago?

And weren't the majority of people disliking it?
 
Well it was an early draft, before Ed Norton's involvement.

There was some discussion, but overall I remember it being pretty positive.
 
man, i read these boards every day. trust me, im one of those regulars who get pissed off at these damn people on here expecting pie AND f'ing cake ya know, i just read this thread and it just infuriated me that i actually had to for once put my thoughts into word and tell people that. if their gonna cry this hard we should show em pictures of africa, might put stuff in perspective for some of you, ya digg? anyways, i find it great to market a movie late and stuff, too much gets me uninterested and with the bad taste of Ang's, trust me, itd still linger in my head the thoughts of the last film 'OMG HULK! THIS IS GREAT AND WILL BE A BETTER MOVIE CUZ WE GOT A GREAT TRAILOR OMG!'...didnt work and i dont want that happening again...due time and patience are great things, believe me

Yeah, I dig you. It really is amazing how pervasive/infectious is the opinion that no trailer must = bad movie. As if there's no possibility that TIH can still be any good without a trailer... or, I should clarify, a teaser trailer. I mean, there's probably some merit to the claim, but does complaining about it get us anywhere? No, it doesn't. And I know that because people have been doing it for the last year and - even supposing the folks at Marvel would be listening to us - it doesn't seem to be changing anything Marvel is doing about it. So we're relegated to either believing that Marvel knows what they're doing... or banking on our own whims that Marvel doesn't know what they're doing and calling attention to ourselves.

I dig you too dude. It's all good. In my mind, if Marvel/Universal blitzes us over the last two months, then all of this "we need a trailer" stuff becomes ancient history. I just don't want to be one of the ones who, when looking back, will eat his words in the event that TIH is totally awesome. If it's legitimately bad, well then the naysayers are right and I have no problem with that. But might I suggest that it starts with having a positive attitude now

Hi ADK.

Ha, you crack me up with your formal greetings dude. Like, isn't your greeting implicit in the fact that you're responding to my post? lol Anyway, welcome back. Was wondering where you went. Did you take a new job or something?

Regarding your post above, truthfully I think we may not know for years whether or not the marketing paid off. People seem to think that if TIH does well this year, using whatever standard you choose, then it instantly = an outstanding marketing campaign. Well, what if TIH doesn't wow people by the numbers, but by its quality? What if it's a fundamentally sound movie that just happens to be the victim of a summer that was crowded by other quality films? Like, what if it merely lays a great foundation for TIH 2? This gets to the shortsightedness of some on this forum - they seem to think that if we don't get a trailer now, the marketing campaign sucks and, hence, the movie will also. And I see no proof for this.

Oh good!
I just remember some complaints about
there not really being that much use of the Hulk, that the Abomination was hardly involved until a short fight at the end, the ambiguity as to whether they were counting the first film or not,
and generally a feeling that this wasn't going to be anything profoundly special, or all that more action packed then the first try.
I'd thought at that point Ed Norton had retouched it.

Oh shut up meat-head I am just a nice guy :woot: :oldrazz: No, no I didn't get a new job, I was just away on business, I am glad to be back, someone in here has to stand up to you :cwink: How have you been anyway bud?

I agree we won't know if the marketing strategy is directly the reason for the success or failure of the film but for myself I look at it this way, promotion or marketing of the film would be the teaser and full trailers, tv spots, posters, pics, all these are a way to build pre-release buzz and hype so hopefully the movie will have a large opening weekend, but the quality of the film will result in positive WOM, repeat viewings, and large DVD sales ect., a film needs both, that is the way I look at it anyway.

Right now if you look at some of the other films I have talked about (SM3, TDK) then it would seem a little strange by what is going on with TIH, but if like you said that they come out with 3 months to go with a full trailer and then just keep the blitz on until the movie is released who really is to say which is right if TIH does well?

I admit I wanted to see a teaser trailer back in December during the holiday season, actually I expected to and was shocked when I didn't, but with no word so far and all the hush, hush around the film, it is actually making me wonder if they are just going to blow our minds with how great everything truly is, I am willing to wait and see what happens, but at the same time I wouldn't be sad if something happened tomorrow :yay:

What crackin' ADK? I for one know what is going on with the marketing, but no one seems to grasp the concept. I mean literally no one understands that Marvel is perfecting the marketing to be as effective and memorable as possible. This quote comes from a Marvel exec today by email to me: "This makes me chuckle...I'm not worried. I'd rather peak at the right time with the perfect campaign." I love how the fan-boys are so spoiled to the point that they cant wait for stuff anymore. Just because some films market early or differently Marvel has to follow suit? I don't think so.
 
How are you EB bud? Still starting trouble on here I see :woot: :oldrazz: :cwink:

Yeah I have to admit, the longer that this has gone on with the very secret nature behind the film, the more it has really gotten me hooked and wondering if what Marvel has planned is just going to be totally amazing and now after reading the quote from a Marvel Exec it has gotten me very excited to see what they have come up with.

You know now that you say that I think you are right, we have become spoiled with what some of the other films have done, TDK would be a great example, a sneek peek teaser back in the summer, lot's of posters, toys, movie pics, a really good trailer in December, so I think a lot of us just expect that for all films now and that is why some people are getting upset, (I admit I was not to happy back in December :o )

But if TIH comes out with a kicka@@ trailer and then just goes crazy with the TV spots ect. and the movie quality is top notch, then who will really remember why it took so long.....Nobody.

Ha, I know dude. Just givin you a hard time. How have I been? Wow. Well, during the month you were away, it was somewhat eventful as far as these boards go. Aveitwithjamon and I bloodied each other's nose, and CJ reprimanded me over PM, twice, for it. Then I got a good shellacking from AD for insinuating that a scene with the Hulk on an ATV - the idea of which directly stemmed from a toy that was recently found on e-Bay - COULD BE way cool. More insults as usual from ArtTeacher, and then you have all the protests of the "we need a trailer!" variety in between that come pretty much standard, now that the Super Bowl has passed. As I said, eventful. But still I go on trying to combat it all with my usual lovely self. lol

Fair enough, can hardly argue with any of that. Not sure, though, that I understand your comment that "the quality of the film will result in positive WOM, repeat viewings, and large DVD sales ect." Do you mean the quality will result from all of those things? To me, I guess, the quality of the film is to be found in the film itself - the content, rather than the things surrounding it.

SM3... I'm not sure that movie can be anecdotal on any level, given the disdain that most people seem to have for it. Maybe you've another example to go with TDK (which as heretofore remains to be seen)?

Finally, the bolded part. That is the whole idea, you see. To impress us. The problem exists in the minds of those who insist that Marvel MUST blow us away because of how long we've waited. That, to me, is unfair and unrealistic. I mean, here Marvel is diligently working to give us something we'll enjoy and all the while, we're poking them in the side with our increasingly impossible-to-meet expectations. ChillcutZ's commentary from earlier today is fitting; it cuts to the heart of the matter without the flowery language you're used to reading from me.
 
To be honest, I'm fine with waiting. When stuff starts hitting the net, every assclown on the hype is going to start showing up, asking if this is a sequel,etc.

I know. And even if it is remarkable, the bashing will be neck deep.
....this movie is really going to have a tough time turning people around I think. It's got an uphill battle in front of it. I'm putting myself in Marvel's shoes right now and I think I would be afraid to show anything too.
 
Fact is, nobody knows Marvel's marketing strategy for this movie, maybe soon enough we'll get a teaser or trailer, who knows. Try being less simplistic with your opinions, thanks.

What people seem to have missed is that Marvel is paying Paramount and Universal to distribute and MARKET Iron Man and Incredible Hulk respectively. Those studios are using their resources and know how to market both films. Paramount wrote the 2.7 million dollar check to Fox for the Super Bowl ad. Marvel has a say but a decent percentage of the movie will go to both outside studios. I trust the studios and I trust in the work. If something is not ready, IT'S NOT READY. They have to make a splash right out of the box with IH because of Ang Lee's dud. It's calculated but it has to be done this way. Teasers and glimpses won't cut it. Chill out and wait for the big splash.

i know personally id rather be swamped out of nowhere with new images that get me excited instead of a slow dribble of b.s ruining a perfectly good film because we all know too much. suck it up princesses and realize youll still be there opening night with soda in hand and hulk shirts on your back...

YEAH! Part of the problem with the X3 negative buzz was that slow dribble of b.s. you mentioned. Fans were chatting with writers and producers and getting their hopes way too out of whack. Enticing remarks made by the writers were turned in to "lies to the fans" and X-fans blew a gasket. X-Fans were expecting Sentinels and Phoenix flames and were pissed off by what they got. I don't need or want that baggage with Incredible Hulk.

But if you look at the past, the CB movies that have been marketing from early on have been the most successful, all 3 Spiderman movies got an advert around 8 months-1 year before they all came out and those 3 are the most successful. X3 also had a great marketing campaign which unfortunately the movie didnt live up to, but it made the movie a success.

At the end of the day we are all moaning because we want this movie to be successful.

Actually MARVEL are doing the Marketing for TIH, not Universal, they are just distributing.

As for X3, the writers shouldnt have told fans they would see things when they knew they wouldnt. And no is asking for the whole movie to be spoiled like X3 either, but a few more screen shots, confirmation of the Hulk's design, a poster, etc wouldnt go amiss.
 
Going to do great. There's intense and heated drama. An independent kind of feel to it, it's dark. It's very similar to the television show even down to using 'The Lonely Man' theme. There are SEVERAL iconic Hulk comic book characters. The final fight will be the most bad ass fight of the summer! Two behemoths duking it out over a city scape with helicopters and buildings coming into the mix... I personally have never seen anything like the fight I read in the screenplay. It wins on all levels that I can see- only need to distance themselves from Ang's Hulk

Welcome back DK :applaud What I said is true based on what EB said. "They're waiting on the VFX." They're trying to get it right. A guy that also worked on the film sent me an E-mail saying that they (Marvel) would promote the POOP out of this film in April. EB de-bunked that but, as of yet, my friend could be correct. That doesn't mean we won't get anything until April but that is the target month. We'll see.

EB I hope your guy is right because you know, the best laid plans on mice and men often go astray

I know my friend, I am just giving it right back to you, you and I can tease each other and have fun :oldrazz: Even though I don't like you LOL!

Glad to hear that you have been keeping things interesting in here :woot: Oh the drama of the Hulk forums ha, ha, ha! I missed all the fun we have in here.

What I meant by "The quality of the film" statement is that I believe that the Teaser, Trailers, TV spots are all about getting people in on OW, but only if the film is good or top quality and like you said great content, will people who have watched it tell their friends (WOM) to go and see it and then go and see it again themself, which will help the Box Office and also get them to buy and add it to their own DVD collection.

Oh please don't get me wrong on what I mean here, I only said that SM3 started it's promotion early and I thought it was very well done, they had a teaser out 10 months before the film opened and then the two great trailers that followed and very good tv spots which helped with the huge $151 million OW (I am not including the first 2 great films), but exactly to your point, the content, the movie sucked! I hate that film so much and I am a huge Spiderman fan, that movie with that opening should have made $400 million but because it was not very good and the WOM was bad it fell way short of the first 2 films in the U.S.A. and Canada.

So really if TIH only has 3 months of promotion and the film is kicka@@ what will it really matter how late they started with everything? I want to see a great movie more than anything and in the end that is all that matters.

But if they do make a great trailer and have great tv spots, I want them to put in on the 2 disc SE DVD, you can make this happen right EB? :yay:

"Flowery Laungage" Who are you trying to fool my friend? LOL

Thanks CJ, how are you my friend? Staying out of trouble? I see you have been keeping our bud BH in line, don't let him get away with anything :woot:

Well if what your friend says is true and Marvel is going to market the "POOP" out of this film from April until it's release then that could work out very well, I think it is going to blow all of us away, I hope this is true as I am really looking forward to watching this movie.
 
I see you have been keeping our bud BH in line, don't let him get away with anything :woot:

BAH!!!

Even if it gets pushed back, if that means better quality CGI, story, etc. I'm all for it. This movie HAS to put The Hulk back on the map. The way I see it, they have one shot at this. :bh:

LOL, What does that mean?

Oh I agree, TIH has one shot to put HULK back on the map, I think that Marvel knows that to, so if something came up and they had to push it back until next year for a better quality film I would be fine with it as well, I want a great film and I am willing to wait to get it.

X3 also had a great marketing campaign which unfortunately the movie didnt live up to, but it made the movie a success.

Honestly I don't think all of that came from marketing...(at least with these two examples)

People went to see the first Spider-man... because it's freaking Spider-man, one of the most well known and well liked heroes. They went to the sequels as the first was such a high quality.

X3 as well had two highly praised films behind it to help it's hype.
