Well at least MI3 is doing allright, and it sounds like Poseidon will flop just like a bunch of people predicted, sounds like Just My Luck is doing worse than expected too.

trick is to always leave the audience wanting more

advertising, clips, trailers, features, behind the scenes, etc. over exposes it

I can imagine a movie based on the bits and pieces given and make into a better semblance than the actual events that take place in the movie

why go to the movie then

if for each movie the only taste was a 90 second trailer that was carefully compiled and ran on tv and online then that could draw people in more, then it's learned whethor that was good or bad, but mostly it is known before hand now days

Yeah man your totally right. Movies get way overexposed. I think the smartest thing Superman could have done would have beeen to not show anyone anything. If the trailer just had the Superman "S" come on screen then say like "Superman Returns: Coming This Summer" and that was it, thatd be awesome. and then until the movie comes out to not sure any other trailer except that one. I think a trailer totally discreet and general like that would get way more buzz and hype.

It's just like last year's slump. Saying that Cruise bombed is more of an attention-grabber than saying it opened ok, but not great.

people are just looking for a reason to sat that this summer is going to dissapoint. Cmon now u still have the di vinci code, xmen 3, pirates 3, superman, nacho libre,the breakup, miami vice, taladega nights(the will farrell movie). This summer is already starting off better than last year, mi3 is doing solid, poseidon opened to 20 which would had been solid if the bidget wasn't so big (o well theres always the international scene right?).
