Press embargo? [In reply to] Can't Post

No doubt stuff re DOS will leak out after premieres, but who gets to go to these? Was under the impression they are not open to the general public, but cast/crew, press, invitees only. Plus possible non-disclosure agreements.

In any case don't think CF and Frozen numbers will affect DOS, as has been posted theater attendance is mystifying and DOS has everything a "general blockbuster audience" could ask for, really (agree with the poster that, for instance, Smaug has just been teased, so expect a full view will be beyond amazing!). Not to mention in the U.S. folks are off on holiday, plenty of time for repeat views (what do you go see if you have been at the
mall all day hitting sales?)

Plus to me DOS has a wide open field, nothing to compare to it - and plenty are not going to go to an animated feature, no matter how good. I don't know how PR in the U.S. stacks up against Europe (I envy the French who seemed to use Hobbit posters in their subways), but they are running AUJ on HBO, I keep seeing commercials *squeal*, and expect the next round of drugstore entertainment mags will all be DOS (replacing the CF ones with "free posters" which have been out for a while). IMO if DOS doesn't make huge numbers it will just be one of those things in the movie business - bet TORN folks could list any number of films that didn't pull huge BO, even tho all the key elements are there. But I think DOS will be huge, if not off the charts.
