New Moon trailer premieres Friday. The new New Moon trailer premieres in front of the new release Bandslam which will open in theaters on August 14th, 2009. The idea to put the brand new New Moon trailer in front of another film is an obvious attempt to draw more audience members to a movie that might end up struggling to bring in the viewers. It’s not a bad idea, and the brand new New Moon trailer is something that fans have been hotly anticipating. It’s a reminder of the ideas that George Lucas used to stir up interest for Star Wars: Episode One, and that he placed the first Star Wars trailer in front of a few other films and let the world know it would be happening.
The premiere of the New Moon trailer is also just a calculation being carried about by a film studio. Summit Entertainment is the studio behind both The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Bandslam, and this just seems like an easy way to link the two films in theaters. While it’s unknown how Bandslam will fare when it is released, everyone knows that The Twilight Saga: New Moon is a very hot ticket, and that so many people are anticipating its release that they might just do anything to get the first glimpse at a brand new New Moon trailer. That’s what everyone involved is hoping for, and those fans willing to spend the money to go see Bandslam when it debuts on August 14th will be among the first fans to glimpse the new New Moon trailer.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon is the second film in the series, which looks to be heading toward a total of four theatrical releases in the set before they are done. The first film did pretty well, but the buzz that has built up since then, along with the books still surviving on the best sellers lists around the country, it is anticipated that the second film could possibly do even better in theaters. It’s coming with some high expectations, but The Twilight Saga: New Moon is going to be one of those films where it is inexpensive to produce, and the profits will come pretty quickly from distributors.
In regard to Bandslam, it is one of those films that have an independent feel, but which could actually be pretty good. It’s not expected to bring in a lot of box office money against the other big money pictures coming out the same night, and that could be a big reason why this Twilight promotion is taking place. Nobody can blame Summit Entertainment for trying to take advantage of this opportunity, and it is certainly going to help the box office totals for Bandslam. Sure, the new New Moon trailer will probably hit YouTube and other internet sites the same night, but it won’t be the same as experiencing the new New Moon trailer on the big screen.
