This is one of those moments where I feel ashamed to be a movie geek. Some people (movie geeks) spend nearly a year drooling over a trailer… even worshiping it. Other people (you know who you are) only see trailers at the theater, and think you have an inside track because you saw it a month before the release date of the film. So who is the bigger dummy?
Thanks to the folks over at The Onion, we movie geeks now have a chance to laugh at ourselves. Only for a minute though. They take a chance to poke fun at the ongoing attention to films that carry a ridiculous amount of coverage with several trailer formats:
Teaser Trailer A, Teaser Trailer B, International Trailer, Red Ban Trailer, TV Spot A, TV Spot B, Superbowl TV Spot, Trailer 1, Trailer 2, Extended Trailer, Studio Featurette… etc.
For all the fans of the famed Iron Man trailer, who might feel as if they have already seen the film through this abundance of trailers, please take a minute to watch and express some humility. Take a look at the reporters face when she says “The plan is to expand that montage of very short shots seen in the trailer, to full length distinct scenes.”
