Trailer Trash: A Guessing Game



Trailer Trash

We haven't had a proper game here for a bit. Here's how it will play out. Once a month, I will name three movies which don't have trailers yet. Your job is to guess what future weekend will see the theatrical release of these trailers attached to it.

I'll start.

This month, I'll name these movies:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
X-Men: First Class
Transformers 3


Your guess is to which weekend will see the trailers for each of these movies released.

Your answer must tie into each movie (so, for example, "Transformers 11/12/10"). The benefit of this type of guess is that if it doesn't play in front of the movie you're thinking of, but still gets released that weekend, you still get points.

You can also choose to answer that the trailer will play "in front" of a movie. So you can say "Pirates 4 Maybe will play in front of Tron"). With this guess, if a movie's release date is pushed back or moved forward, your guess moves with it.

Edited posts will not count.

Each right answer is 1 pt. If you guess all three films for that month correctly, you get a bonus point.

I'll update standings monthly.

Other Rules & Clarifications
  • This is for trailers only, meaning it is at least a minute long, and contains all-new footage from the film. I think we all know the difference between a trailer and a teaser. Teasers don't count.
  • US release dates only. If there's a UK or international trailer... it don't count.
  • The weekend is the important date, and only the theatrical release matters; that is, the trailer plays in theaters. YouTube leaks, iTunes exclusives, Comic Cons, trailer on the Super Bowl... it don't count.
  • Some weekends will see releases before that Friday. Any Tues-Thurs releases count for the weekend coming up. So, The American counts for Labor Day weekend.


More to follow.

Re: Trailer Trash: A Guessing Game

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will have its teaser debut during Tangled.

X-Men: First Class will debut its teaser during The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (i.e. similar marketing tactic that worked on X-Men: The Last Stand which was still in production at time the teaser debuted).

Transformers 3 will debut its teaser during the Super Bowl ala Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Re: Trailer Trash: A Guessing Game

Looks like most of us are correct about Pirates showing with Tron.

From comingsoon.net;

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed today that the teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is scheduled to hit theaters with TRON: Legacy on December 17. With both films being released in 3D and IMAX 3D, we assume the teaser will be shown in the format for those specific theaters and in 2D in conventional theaters.

Re: Trailer Trash: A Guessing Game

The Transformers trailer is online now. Not sure if that means that it is playing on front of Narnia this weekend.
