    Basically, it comes down to this: Summer 2011 is going to be one of the most competitive summers ever. X-Men FC, POTC 4, Thor, Captain America, etc... there's no shortage of blockbuster movies coming out.

    But it's a pretty safe bet that the two heavyweights are going to be Transformers 3 and the final Harry Potter (I can't see how any movie is going to top the final HP movie box office wise). And that's my point: from what I can tell, there's only been 1 sneak peak of the HP movie. No trailers, no Super Bowl commercial, nothing. Biggest movie of the summer, and so far, zilch.

    So it makes sense that TF3 has held back. The smart move is to counter the HP promotion with their own, so the big bad trailer we're all waiting for is probably going to go live right before or at the same time the HP trailer comes out. It's a competition, and while neither movie is really gonna need much marketing, it's going to be an all out battle anyway.

    That's my theory, anyway.

    I think it's because DOTM is obscenely expensive to produce and they already know they've got a well-established franchise at this point. It's not like with the 07 movie where they had to sell the public on the idea of a movie based on these toys from the 80's. They just need to start dropping TV spots on MTV a couple weeks before July 1, and get a big promo going in stores with toy displays and what not to make people realize another one's coming soon.

    Actually HP has a trailer. It was released last year before the part 1 premiere. The trailer was for the 2 parts together.

    Still, for the singular film that's being released this summer, there hasn't been hardly any promotion so far in 2011.

    I doubt X-Men is competition. It's still filming as we speak.

    I've been wondering about the absence of trailers as well but, who knows, maybe they want to keep this movie more of a secret because it'll (hopefully) be the best of all three.

    A couple of my friends were talking about how they saw the Teaser Trailer, which I didn't believe at first until they wrote down what happened on a piece of paper and shows it to me. It actually sounded like something Michael Bay would do, so please comment and tell me if you think this is real, because I sure do.
