I'm starting to fatigue with the contant stream of trailers, leaks, rumors, images, speculations, interviews, and hints that are circulating for some of what would be movies I'm hotly anticipating.  Start Wars, Avengers, Captain America, all those upcoming blockbusters I WOULD have wanted to see, I'm already tired of.     

I'm pretty sure that all these are planned by marketing, but they have essentially lost a fanboy (and at least one fangirl).  I'm not going to pay first run prices to fill in holes.

I exactly agree, as I pretty much just posted over in another thread related to an upcoming movie.

Also, as I posted there, check out the documentary "Generation Like" to see how the whole "online buzz" thing is a manufactured manipulation.

STARSUCKERS is also a good one to see how "popularity" is used to manipulate people as well...how easily people can be manipulated both by the popular and in the desire to become popular.  Saw a real world example this weekend with The Travel Channel advertising "You could be the NEXT STAR!"

Since watching these, my view of the entertainment "industry" has changed.  Already someone cynical, I am now downright antagonistic.

Given that some trailers give you the 'best parts' I can understand the suspicion of all that noise. Jaded, they think? When you Hollywood suits give me reason...

That happens for me with TV shows.  Two months before the premiere episode they're showing 5 commercials an hour for the damned thing.  By a month and a half before the first episode I never want to hear about it ever again.

And then there's this (a pretty cool analysis of contemporary trailers):

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

You guys suck a lot of fun out of the air!

I love teaser trailers, especially one for a franchise I have loved since I was 12 years old.
I'm gonna see the movie regardless, but a teaser like this just gets me even more amped up!

So yes, I'm ripe fruit for corporate entertainment's picking.

But I don't really care. TeddyR

Fox Africa is constantly showing a promo for the upcoming series Wayward Pines starring Matt Dillon and Melissa Leo and I'm not sure I want to see it.

WAYWARD PINES...

Saaaaay...

:

I TRY not to... But I'm so tired of hearing about these franchises that I should love (I saw Star Wars in the first few days of showing, AND had the comic with the green darth vader).  And I'm Cap's #1 fan.

But I don't want to see all this new stuff, and see leaks and analysis, and stills, and and and...  I want to go to the movie with no preconcieved ideas, and be surprised.  It seems like this is not an option any more.

I am with you, in fact I stopped watching trailers/rumors/whatever. When the movie arrives I quickly check the impressions and decide to go or not to go seeing it in the theaters.

I liked it when there was one teaser, then a trailer, then maybe posters, then the movie came out.  The slow constant leaking gets old. 
 
My advice: stay off movie sites and the movie section of news sites.

I somehow seem to miss most of this stuff but then people tell me I've got my head in the clouds, am easily distracted (generally I'm tired to society's obsession with instant gratification, slow and steady leads to better results in so many areas).

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
