^ Aren't you special... :rolleyes:

This is big. You want buzz? Get an ad in the SuperBowl. The suits at Paramount must really like what they've seen of this movie.

Nope, I just tell people stuff like this all the time and they never believe me... until it happens.

I have zero interest in the Super Bowl and baseball (or is super bowl American football ?) but as I've understood over the years getting an add there is a big deal.

So I say cool and good for Trek :bolian:

American football -- it's the NFL championship game, and it's about as high-profile as it gets, U.S. TV ad-wise. Lots of people who care nothing whatsoever about the sport or the outcome of the game will be paying attention to what gets shown in the commercial breaks.

Really? Since when did building hype with a bowl ad equate to quality? Remember that .com sock puppet ad? So the risk here, is there is so much expectation built up, the movie is 'over marketed'?

Will it be one of the two out there now or a new one? If they stick with the ones that are done, I'll bet it's the one with Nimoy at the end. However, I hope it's a new one with unseen footage.

As I understand it from a friend of mine who used to work in the NYC office of Paramount, it's likely to only be a 30 second spot, because of the high cost of getting an ad.

I'm hoping that it's 30 seconds of images we have yet to see, and not a re-hash from the existing trailers.

Actually I read recently that American Idol is replacing the SuperBowl for the buzz factor.

I remember that for a 30 second spot the average cost is around 1.9 million dollars.

I never forget the Apple Superbowl commercial wear the girl breaks through the buffed door guards and throws the slinged hammer at that hugh Orwellian big brother screen...

...WOW!

To see that for the very first time buzzing on prime hydro and Ripple ...all heads are turning, like WTF just happened. Funny I only saw it that one time but every now and then I'll recall it vividly. But people talked about it for weeks afterword.
