Catching Fire is likely to exceed Smaug gross, Thor II is likely to fall just under it. [In reply to] Can't Post

If Thor sees approximately the same Avengerslinked boost in interest that Iron Man saw, that movie should make around 275 to 290 million dollars, solidifying it as a blockbuster, but leaving it shy of An Unexpected's take. Assuming that Desolation does about equal to or better than An Unexpected's pick up, that should keep An Unexpected in good stead to come in at number 3 for the year, behind Iron Man 3 and Catching Fire, provided that Catching fire does as well as Hunger Games. An Unexpected out performed Hunger Games massively on the International measurement, and Desolation will likely do the same. But all is uncertain prognostication at this point.

Various media outlets are picking insane interest in 2 November movies which they rank as #1 and #2 most anticipated by a large margin. Actually, the margin between #1 and #2 is even more staggering than between #2 and #3. So WB would definitely want to attach the trailer or one or both. It looks like some records will be broken in November and Iron Man 3 may hold its horses as far as boxoffice winner goes.

I remember... [In reply to] Can't Post

...Return of the King didn't get much promotion either until September 2003 when the first and only trailer came out. The first time we got to see footage of it was on the Two Towers DVD.

None is a WB movie [In reply to] Can't Post

and studios don't always attach trailers to their movies. They simply go with the best exposure they can get or exposure to the right audience (it's pointless to attach a Woody Allen trailer to Iron Man 3, for example). WB attached TDKR prologue to Mission Impossible 4 on IMAX which is a Paramount movie I think.

I'm not really coy, just don't feel like promoting other movies after a little incident I had with another movie praise that I had in a similar thread. But to answer your question about falling flat, Ender's Game could be that. Other two just have way too much anticipation on their side to miss out on a strong opening weekend.

I confess [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw Pacific Rim (which I personally loved) twice but I was really disappointed that there was no Desolation of Smaug trailer attached to either showing I went to. I thought it was really odd given it was a geek oriented 3-D Warner production and would have been a perfect opportunity to show it. They showed Unexpected Journey trailers at pretty much all the showings of Dark Knight Rises I saw. Also no Desolation trailer shown before the screening of Elysium I saw either which is also kind of funny given Blomkamp's connection to Jackson and the fact that Weta was involved.

It doesn't work that way [In reply to] Can't Post

Neither Pacific Rim nor Elysium had strong tracking, so it would be a waste of money to attach trailers to them. Especially since they are more geek oriented than mainstream oriented movies. You don't need to promote Hobbit to geeks who already have the ticket so to speak. You need to catch casual viewers who are on the fence. For example, Tauriel-oriented trailer with Catching Fire would send the message "if you like Katniss, maybe you check out another female archer." It doesn't have to work, fangirls could dismiss the Elf as an imitator and get put off by fantasy,etc but they could also be interested. Theirs is to try and reach a portion of that audience. Or trailer with Thor 2 would send the message that if you like Thor battles and fantasy worlds, not to mention hot men, maybe you check out Hobbit's battles, worlds and men. Smile

Also, outside of movie buffs nobody knows or remembers that Jackson produced District 9 so attaching his trailer to former protégé's movie wouldn't mean anything. Same goes for effects studio. WETA isn't exactly a household name cause effects studios usually aren't. They are more stealth, background wizards.
