But if BvS is an indication of anything, it's that word-of-mouth is nearly as important as name recognition.


Though, if this ends up being better than BvS, I'd laugh at the fact that Nolan chose Snyder over Jones for MoS (according to the logic in my mind).
I'm curious as to how Jones would have done with Man of Steel but the script was the much more damning part of the movie. Direction alone wouldn't have been enough to salvage it.

Well, I suppose I meant both critically and net profit.

I guess I understand the frustration, as fans who anxiously await additional promo materials...but I thought it was pretty tight.

Anyway, yeah, I'm not impressed with any of these Warcraft Posters.

Nor impressed with the new trailer... Sure, VFX look a bit better here and there but other than that... Not feeling this.

I really liked the new trailer. Got a sense of what it's about.
What are the big scary guys called? Orcs? Ogres? Trolls?

It's really not that. I mean just compare it with The Dark Knight's fantastic main poster.

It's geometrically coherent, thematically relevant and aesthetically magnificent. Everything Rises' main poster wasn't.£
