Many Batman and The Dark Knight fans got super excited last week when Warner Bros. released a teaser poster of The Dark Knight Rises. It got the fans buzzing and everyone looking forward to next summer.
Yes, we said next summer. Almost a week after the poster release, a teaser trailer was released yesterday. This begs the question, isn't it a bit early to promote a movie for next summer?
Some fans were disappointed with the trailer and some were confused and voiced their opinions.
Youtube user BombfestFILMS said, "Sorry but I just can't see there being an epic conclusion when using Bane and Catwoman." Another Youtube user named Gamesystemdude123, seemed confused and said, "Does this mean it's the last movie?" There were many other related comments like, "Who is the bad guy in this?" and so on, which just showed how confusing some fans thought the new trailer was.
Promoting movies this early has become a common trend lately, but does it make you want to see the movie even more or does it make you confused and reluctant to see it next summer?
Also yesterday, a teaser trailer for The Avengers was leaked via bootleg which opens in May 2012. This might be the start of a new trend for upcoming movies.
Many of you are probably wondering why some movies are using this strategy and the answer is that they want to up the ante and hype for the movie, no matter how early it is. Can someone be anticipating a movie for a whole year and is it interesting enough that they won't forget about it during that long span of time?
Only you can decide for yourself if the waiting is worth it and if the teaser makes you want to mark your calendar or go on Netflix.
