    Has anyone noticed this or is it just me.

    Master and Commander, the trailers seem to have changed. from the first trailers around 8 - 12 months ago they seemed to be pitching it as an all out action at sea movie then as the film was about to be released it seemed to be an action film at see with more emphasis on characters and plot development. And now (although everyone is saying what a good film it is, the takings haven't been quite as high as studios hoped) they seem to be pushing it again in an all out bruckhimer style action film.

    I know this has happened a few times eg. Solaris first being pitched as lovestory then action etc. and the wonderboys poster changing several times (but still despite being a good film) and actually being rereleased with a different campaign 'cause the fist one did nothing for the film.

    Can anyone think of any other examples of traiers changing during a release ???

    Am I just anal?

    Or am I that bored in work that it's about time i got a new job....:boring:

    A lot of trailers tend to bill a film as something it is not, its the Studios trying to get an audience.
