No superhero vs. superhero battles on the big screen – not yet, at least – but Batman, Spider-Man and Captain America got the chance to duke it out in promo land this week and the outcome was rather surprising.
In general, there was a pretty tough fight for those promotion spots. We got a ton of new material, most of which is worthy of a mention. There’s the very first trailer for The Thing, which presents the film as a remake of the John Carpenter production rather than a prequel, but still manages to raise intrigue. Based on the first trailer for Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, come November 23rd, we could get something that’s kid friendly, but still packing appeal to adults, too. Similarly, the first trailer for the 3D stop-motion The Pirates! Band of Misfitsarrived and while the material is quite juvenile, the animation is mesmerizing.
Glee: The 3D Concert Movie recovered from last week’s demotion disaster with a trailer that gets right to the good stuff, the music and behind-the-scenes time with the stars. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy takes a step in the right direction as well with a new poster that artfully hints at the intricacy of the plot.
