Last week, the National Association of Theater Owners announced that they were requesting that movies trailers be shorter and that marketing campaigns begin no more than four months in advance of a film’s release. This week on The Collision, we talk about trailers, the marketing machine, blitzing the mainstream and luring in the fanboys, and much more. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
