Has Anyone Noticed That The More "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is Promoted, The More Boring it Becomes?
This movie has been promoted to the point of "Saturation Overkill"
A few more points...
1. This movie has been promoted so much with way too much plot and character information, I feel like I have already watched it and already own the DVD of this movie. So, what does this mean for the Box Office of this movie this summer? I have no desire to see this movie.
2. Whatever happened to the old days of logically withholding all information about a movie so that an audience would be pleasantly surprised about all of the goodies in the movie? This leads to Box Office success rooted in curiosity.
3. Why go and see a movie if you already know the plot? We already know that "Wolverine" goes back in time to encounter a younger "Professor Xavier." We aren't supposed to know this yet!! We aren't supposed to know any of this until opening day of this movie and we go and "discover" this movie. The marketing department of this movie is run by idiots. They have been giving away every detail about this movie, and they began doing it over a year before opening day!!
4. When the marketing strategy of a movie is unprecedented in the sense that it is tied in to releasing too much information too early about the movie long before opening day in order to apparently try and salvage the director's career attached to the movie...is treading on very risky financial waters.
5. This movie is being promoted too heavily, too early, with way too much information being given away about it before its release at a time when it is going to have to compete with "Spiderman 2", "Captain America 2", and "Godzilla." How Can "X-Men" possibly hope to compete with any of these movies when too much information about it has already been given away?
6. Audiences will have no need to go and see "X-Men: Days of Future Past" after already learning everything they need to know about it on the Internet. On a positive note, this will free their money up so they can go and see "Spiderman 2", "Captain America 2", and "Godzilla" instead!! The marketing department of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has inadvertently done a public service for moviegoers.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
