Check out this new TV spot for Disney's Chicken Little. I'm not sure it's as effective as it could be since, while it gives the story in very broad strokes, it spends a lot of time on one joke for which we are not given the context. It's a thirty second spot and it seems … Continue reading Chicken Little TV spots
I may not be getting to all the things I want to over the next couple of weeks. Specifically, there may be some movies I want to cover here on the blog as "Mini MMM" pieces but won't have the time for. My company is sending me on some trips to speak to PRSA chapters … Continue reading Light posting ahead
I don't quite know whether to call this an actual teaser trailer for Superman Returns or not. It's a promotional reel that was shown at a recent Comic-Con gathering that certainly looks like a teaser. Ahh heck, I'll just keep it simple and call it that. Anyway, this teaser is very cool.

Yahoo! Movies is the only place you'll find the first trailer for Memoirs of a Geisha, the story of a poor girl sold by her family who goes on to become the most sought-after geisha of her time. It certainly has aspirations of epicness but I'm not sure it gets there. It sets up the … Continue reading Memoirs of a Geisha trailer
ComingSoon has the first full trailer for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in sizes and flavors to suit anyone's needs. The darker this series gets the more I'm inclined to check it out but I'm not quite there yet. This trailer works pretty well and includes most if not all the major plots … Continue reading Goblet of Fire theatrical trailer
I've been thinking a bit lately on the overall structure of MMM and want to make a few things clear. First, in terms of advertising, I'm completely dependent on the kindness of strangers that visit the blog. I have Google AdSense ads going and just above those are links to AllPosters and Amazon.
