I am sick of all this secrecy. The trailer for Iron man 3 is coming next week.
And the significance of that is... ?

Paramount has already started the campaign for Iron man 3 which is by far a more bigger box office draw than star trek.
Which means... what, so far as the Star Trek movie is concerned?

They cant do the same for trek because of JJ’s obsession with everything been tight lip . It could as well backfire on Paramount and hurt the film's commercial success.
Repeating the same empty complaint here about J.J. doing things the same way J.J. always does things simply isn't very likely to change the way J.J. does things. Far from backfiring, as has been already been pointed out to you more than once, that approach worked just fine for J.J and for Star Trek the last time around, and still you offer no real reasons why it shouldn't work just as well for this movie.

SweEt heart your dead wrong....lets do a reality check shall we?

Reality check 1

The last time around was different as trek was coming back from the dead after the failure of nemesis and enterprise and if I remember correctly there was a trailer attached to quantum of solace which was released In November 2008. JJ’s Trek came out in may 2009.

So by this time 4 years ago, promotion had already begun for the first film.

Reality check 2

Commerical Sucess: I will kindly ask you to do more research on trek films. Trek film has never been a huge box office draw overseas and even USA with the exception of the 09 film and the Voyage home. Paramount wants to change that and believe me secrecy is not going to help it. It is best to start promoting the film early.

If you think am wrong look at Iron man 3, after the huge success of Avengers you would think iron man wouldn’t need all the publicity and promotion anymore. Unfortunately that has not been the case. the campaign for the film has already begun even the film's plotline is already out

Also look at the john carter and super 8. Their promotions were quite poor and that hurt both films Box office success.

Star Trek may go down that root if Paramount is not careful.

Reality Check 3

The only time secrecy works is when the studio does not want to promote the film early because they don’t want Film Critics reviewing the film.

Case in point another Paramount film called GI JOE. Botomline is Trek may be fun for us but to JJ and Paramount, it’s all about business and Trek needs all the publicity it can get if it is to become a huge success worldwide.

Next year is going to be crazy with films like Wolverine, Man of steel and Iron man 3. It will be sad if trek gets lost in the crowd as I strongly believe that TREK 2013 has a good chance of been the best film of next summer.....The best film of next summer that doesnt even get to be in the top five highest grossing film of the year 2013.

I hope that doesnt happen.
