If we hit December and we still have nothing then I will start being a little bit concerned. I personally just think there holding back on the marketing to start it later and have heavy marketing push till release.

The polar opposite of KOTM.


I'm thinking of that as well. Movies that usually released in March tend to have trailers around November right? Like how Kong Skull Island got a full official trailer in November 2016 3 months before it's March release date. This could be the same here for Godzilla vs Kong which isn't a bad time when you think about since having it released around the Thanksgiving break is a good way to promote a trailer without too much hassle.

At least that's the hope I'm having. The Monsterverse NEEDS a giant hit this time around and having a late trailer isn't going to help in that.


The Monsterverse is NEVER going to get a giant hit.

And I think they know this, hence they are going to try to market and release the movie in the most successful manner as possible.

Now, I've loved Godzilla since I was a kid. But the fact is, KOTM, Godzilla, Godzilla vs Kong are barely B list movies today. No amount of marketing is going to make it a bit. It will underperform, it will do bad, and it will get poor reviews because people don't care for Godzilla. If the Avengers are LeBron James, Godzilla is Jimmy Butler.

Nothing Legendary does will change the fact that 9/10 people aren't interested in Godzilla. So let's stop holding out hope for the Monsterverse to pump out a hit. It's not happening. Let's just support the movie for what it is, a modern day cgi Godzilla camp...which is what we all want anyway. I'll be happy with it. I also don't care that the movie will not be technically great or beloved.

That and the fact that people nowadays will just seem to blindly love anything with "Marvel Studios" stamped on the official poster. Endgame was "sorta good" at best, had a slew of problems, is undeniably the most overrated movie I've ever witnessed. Like come on, it was middle-tier as an MCU movie AT BEST.

But yeah Godzilla will just never be like that. And the fact that LP/WB are withholding the GvK trailer trying to pull an Endgame with the secrecy is just dumb. If KOTM made a billion, perhaps I could see this working for them

You know your word isn't law, right?

Except...there's literally no confirmation of that being the reason at all. That's just something you pulled out of nowhere, I haven't even HEARD of anyone even suggesting that.

If anything, the withheld marketing is more likely a response to the fact that KOTM's marketing took place over almost a year. First hint was a trailer at SDCC 2018 and they stretched it all the way until May to the point that most people forgot about it on release day.

At this point, I think we should all settle down and wait till the trailer comes out. it won't be that long, and you all need to have some patience, K? Besides, I initially thought the GvK trailer would release in September.

You're talking to a forum where half the members go out of the way to spoil themselves months ahead of a movie they are gonna go see anyways.

Patience isn't one of this forums virtue.

Let's also pretend that Kotm was the rule and not the expectation. B level movies can't make 500m twice and while Kotm's 385 was bad it wasn't horrible when you consider bigger bombs as well.

Terminator for example just did 29m.

A simple, " I'm sorry my bad" would have suffice.

While I want a trailer here and now, we're a little over 4 months away from the movie. That's still a decent amount of time to promote this film. KOTM proved that there's no need for a super drawn out promotional campaign.

So, in case no one wants to risk moving through the spoiler thread. I wrote into a movie show that I follow in regards to the promotion, and got picked.

I thought Rob made a good point. Some end year movies coming out, and oscar season around the corner. We could be looking at a potential December promotion market. Nothing confirmed of course, just his speculation.
