Okay, I don’t want to hear any remarks about this…......I actually cried.  It wasn’t what I expected, but I loved it.  I love penguins though.  I have two Mumbles.  One tap dances to music from my cds, and his mouth and eyes and head animate when he dances.  The other one is from Build-A-Bear and I got him tennis shoes.  This one’s up in the bed along with about 12 other very large puppets, dragons, and goth critters.

I’ve read that it’s actually a very good movie.  I just can’t bring myself to go see it because of how absolutely hideous the previews made it look.

I really don’t want to see it, but having kids I probably don’t have a choice.  But I and not paying the over inflated price at the theater to see it, we can wait until it comes out on dvd.

It only came out today over here, and we will be going to see it, as Matt loves penguins.

Agree.  The trailers were the worst.

Our friends with children that have seen it are raving about it, though.  The parents, not the kids.  The kids liked it, too.  They just don’t review movies much past, “it was good.” wink

We’ve actually had very, very few trailers on TV, at least that I’ve seen. I ended up having to go online to find out what the film was actually about.

Matt just went “A film about penguins! Cool!”

We saw that one on a talk show featuring Elijah Wood. Matt wants it. smile

This one’s up in the bed along with about 12 other very large puppets, dragons, and goth critters.

I’m intrigued by the ‘goth critters’. They sound fun!

I tend not to pay much attention to movie trailers anyway.  If it’s a horrible movie, they’ll just show every single good scene that they possibly can in order to make it look good.  Or sometimes they’ll end up choosing the worst parts of a good movie to show, or else show things in such a confused manner as to make no sense.  And half the time, the movie isn’t even like the impression that the trailers give you.  Although they’re not usually as bad as the description on the backs of books often are. . .

Maybe something like these guys, among others?  Unless she means that she has some stuffed Visigoths and Ostrogoths, which would be rather smashing (“Look, Mommy:  the new Alaric action figure, with working battle-ax motion and severed head trophy!  I want one!!!”).

Yep. Usually the studio does several versions of trailers for a film, each one a different “take” on the film. There may be a “buddy” trailer, a “horror” trailer, an “art film” trailer or an “action” trailer, depending on the film’s content. One marketing approach is usually decided on beforehand (“let’s market this as a comedy!”), but if the movie does poorly after opening, they’ll start showing a different version to hopefully interest a wider audience (“Ooops, let’s try it as an action flick instead”). If the movie completely tanks, expect an entirely different trailer and packaging art when it comes out on DVD.
