What in the world is going on with the Thunderbirds film?!? Evidently it was released on Friday. I say “evidently” because other than the fact that the website says “Now Playing,” theres been almost NO publicity or advertising of this film to indicate that it even exist.
Allright, I probably won’t go to see it anyway, but I really hate it when companies pull this kind of crap. They throw lots of money at a film to get it made and then spend almost nothing to promote it. I’ve read that companies usually spend about the same amount of money they spend on the films production as they do on its advertising and promotion. I haven’t seen ONE Thunderbirds commercial. They only way I know about it was because I happened to see the trailer on Quicktime.com’s movie section.
Why to companies do this? If they dont promote a movie, its destined to die at the box office. How do people see it if they don’t know its out? Are they just figuring that it will fail miserably so they dont even bother advertising? If so, why have it made in the first place?
