    I said weeks ago, on this forum, that this movie would be promoted in association with another 3D movie so take the supercilious tone and try it with someone else, I'll not bite. What I don't buy 9 minutes of out of context footage not presented as a trailer.

    OBVIOUSLY you do, OBVIOUSLY I wish you all the luck in the world, I think you'll find I can start an argument about anything, with anyone, if I'm in the mood Sheldon.

    Nine minutes to rule them all
    Nine minutes to find them
    IMAX to bring them all
    and in the darkness bind them

    Well, this is freaking awesome news. :)

    Trailer can't be far off now, surely.

    OK in simpler terms the reason why a longer look as opposed to a bunch of scenes cut together into a trailer is that full scenes were filmed in the iMax format (not the whole movie, kind of like what happened with 2nd Batman movie, the last mission impossible).

    THose Imax theaters want to highlight what looks great on their screens. Which means the parts specifically shot for Imax.

    So they will probably play one full sequence.

    A trailer or teaser will have bits and pieces (usually) of a lot of different segments of the film, and the likely hood of those all being the parts shot specifically for Imax is very small.

    I didn't enjoy seeing XI on an IMAX screen at all - it was just too big, and became almost nauseating trying to follow everything that was happening during space battles (being a midnight screening didn't help).

    Still, it's almost worth tolerating for such a big preview.

    I'm thinking this might end up being way too spoilery for me.

    They must be pretty confident in what they have if they are going to release the first nine minutes. A bit of a gamble.

    Not much choice at this point. Thanks to JJ, Paramount's got a LOT of lost time to make up for in terms of getting people excited again. I'm strongly tempted to say even this is too little, too damn late.

    They've been doing it like this with movies On Demand for awhile now, although it's usually 10 minutes.

    It's totally a gimmick to get people into IMAX theatres for The Hobbit.

    It's just going to be still images of those three frames for three minutes apiece.

    I'm half-hoping that, even after the 9-minute preview, we're still none the wiser as to Benedict Cumberbatch's identity:rommie:

    His name will be spoken several times... but dubbed over with a comedy sound effect.

    A Starfleet delta obscuring each actors' mouth.

    Just to mindfuck any lip readers. :evil:

    9 minutes. The best part of the film?

    I'd prefer a trailer. I'm not big on these 9 minute cock teases because I don't want to spoil the movie and I want to enjoy it properly within the full context of the movie's running time.

    There's still half a year to go before it premieres. There's plenty of time to promote the movie and then some.

    Poor JJ. First, there wasn't enough. Only 3 frames? Who's the Villain? Where's the news? Now, there's too much. Really? Nine whole minutes??? And the entire Hobbit movie has to be attached too??? :rofl:

    No wonder he took his name out of the hat for Star Wars. Although, I wonder if a little voice, deep down inside, said "If I had only waited..." I suspect he'd like to swap if he could, but Star Trek needed him, imo. While people complain, and kick, and scream, I hope he can remember that.
