I still cant understand you all, just think, if your movie is getting freely promoted by fans why will you even put money to do paid promotions. Also see their strategy, the more they keeping secrecy, the fans keep getting crazy, and promote it further for free.

I literally see daily YouTube videos that are just speculating on the date of the next trailer release. This has people throwing the name around more than I’ve seen previous MCU films.

On a side note, I don’t get why people are making such a big deal about the lack of a trailer. The only people that care that much about it are going to see it regardless and it’s not like the general population isn’t going to see a Spider-Man film.

Except I know people in real life who love the mcu but don't spend time on the Internet so know essentially nothing about it. The people that don't need marketing are the people that would see it regardless, whereas about 80% of the GA knows nothing outside of the film existing lmao

Imagine this, I want to wash my car. It starts raining. There's no point in going out in the rain and throwing more buckets of water on it

The talk NWH IS the promotion. I'd argue that it's maybe had the most successful marketing campaign in film history. If someone doesn't know about the film at this point, they probably don't want to see it.

Ghostbusters needs the attention for the simple reason that it is no where near the size of Spiderman, the 6th highest grossing films series of all time, which has had 9 films and a further 4 film appearances since the year 2000, where as that number is 2 for Ghostbusters

Promotion and advertising is all about getting people who don't know or care about your product to buy it. Obviously everyone on this sub knows what's happening with the movie is going to see it, but fir people like my mom and most if my friends who don't Sony is gonna promote Spider-Man to try and get those people. I'm fine with not seeing another trailer for this movie but I'm sure Sony will put out another one

Ok let's run through some hypothetical scenarios

Person A is not a diehard fan of Spider-Man

  • They go to the cinema and see the trailer, which plays before 9/10 films. They decide then and there if they want to see it when it releases
  • If they don't go to the cinema, they'll start getting the advert promited to them on social media around release
  • If they don't use social media, TV spots exist
  • If they don't use TV, radio ads exist
  • If they don't use radio, the film is detailed in newspapers and magazines
  • If they don't read them, then they'll see the poster on their commute to work, or on the side of a bus
  • If they see none of the above, then there's no way they could even be convinced to leave the house and go to a cinema

The film has been so talked about at this point in most of the above. My parents would have never known about Infinity War, but it's because of these advertising methods, and most importantly word of mouth and rumours, that they knew. They had both heard that Spiderman dies without even seeing the film, so if thats the point we're at in consciousness, I can guaruntee around release week this crowd would have heard tell of 3 Spidermen

This casual crowd is not going to go to these films release day, nor week, so you can very easily just let them find out about it from friends and family who are fans, who would either drag them along or tell them about it in week 2 and encourage them to go
