I don't really understand why they remove them. It's free advertising.

They must hope that some people are shelling out cash to see the movie just to see the trailer, but I don't think that's all that common these days.
I saw I Am Legend just to catch a glimpse of The Dark Knight trailer on the big screen.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

You wouldn't have seen I Am Legend if it didn't have the trailer?

Even if that's the case, people like you would have paid to go see it anyway, in order to see it on the big screen.

No. The movie didn't interest me that much.

I'm a bit confused. Aren't you arguing that people don't go see movies with teasers like the one for Wolverine attached?

Re: the Wolverine trailer

I think the only thing I really loved about seeing this trailer was seeing Gambit there. Definitely looking forward to that, since he was sorely missed from the X-Men movies.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

I have no idea WHY Gambit was in the trailer. Was that necessary besides to give a little shout-out to the fans?

I don't know either, but it is a trailer. Got to get the people to go see it I guess.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

No, I'm saying I find it hard to believe that pulling a trailer from the Internet affects the box office very much.

The type of person who would pay the price of a full movie just to see a trailer is probably going to do so anyway, regardless of whether it's on the Internet. As you said, to "see it on the big screen."

Oh. That I agree with.

Absolutely.

You're operating under the false assumption that movie executives are rational people.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

I'm not sure if this is kosher or not, but since one link to the bootleg trailer was already posted in the thread without a problem:

http://www.traileraddict.com/trailer...ootleg-trailer

There were no SF&F mods online at the time to ask, but if you guys want to remove the link go ahead.

It looks great. Next May is going to be an awesome month for movies.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

The trailer was awesome...and I think I read an article last week or several weeks ago where Hugh was talking about wanting to go to Japan to be Patch in a sequel. Gambit did seem to be in it quite a bit, he must have a really big part in the movie and did everyone catch little Ororo? Deadpool better indeed have his full costume on...

Looks pretty decent. Liev was a good choice for Sabretooth.

In my local newspaper, the ad for The Day The Earth Stood Still had a little splash ad addition that took up the bottom corner saying; "The only place you can catch the world premiere of the trailer for X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE!"

So yeah, they think it helps.

I used to go see movies I wasn't completely interested in to catch trailers in the days before the internet, but nowadays, I can wait until Sunday or Monday to see it on the nets.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

I just watched it and I wish I hadn't. It feels rather spoiler-y.
Fortunately, the release is months away. I may forget. I don't like to know too much about a movie beforehand, beyond what makes me want to see it. In Wolverine's case, knowing the character and its interpreter is enough incentive for me.

Thanks for sharing the link, though.

About Liev Schreiber: too familiar face. Can't imagine him as a furry mutant. Or perhaps with more fur, as was suggested, so he'd look less like himself. The role suits him, but still.


If I understand it right, that trailer hype (with any trailer from an eagerly expected movie) comes from the spoilery aspects. Feel free to educate me otherwise.
But in my book, a trailer's job is to make you want to see the movie by showing you the least possible from it and exciting your curiosity.
