Transformers, Twilight, etc.. [In reply to] Can't Post

yes and the trailer was attached to Man of Steel and will be the summer trailer, which as you are well aware is blockbuster season(sorry comic book fans but I do class most comic book films alongside Transformers and the like).

It's called target marketing, of course, AUJ has aleady been, gone and taken over a billion dollars, the fanbase for the second film is already there, we don't need a trailer to get us to see DOS, and Warners marketing execs know that, this trailer isn't aimed at us, it's aimed at those whom haven't seen AUJ and/or those who have seen AUJ but need to be told there's another film i.e. non fans, ok I'll say it non-geeks Wink

Yup [In reply to] Can't Post

The Geeks are stone cold locks. WB knows this. They will put their marketing muscle elsewhere. We may not like it and it may disappoint us (I have not been a big fan of their holding the fanbase at arms length..my perception) but hey that's the way it is.

Thank you for your questions, now go sod off and do something useful - Martin Freeman Twitter chat 3/1/13
