My PR theory on why this is done is that the majority of those people who make movies or act in them live in NYC or LA. If you want to make someone think the movie is being promoted heavily everywhere, promote heavily where they are. They'll never know that there's not one damn billboard in Nashville for The Cape or not an out-of-home campaign running in Indiana for Drop Dead Diva.
That being said. There are several movies coming out that I'm itching to see. Here they are:
- Moneyball (Brad Pitt, Philip Seymour Hoffman and baseball? WINNER!)
- The Ides of March (It's a movie about a press secretary that messes up. Love the idea. Did I mention Ryan Gosling is that press secretary?)
- Twilight: Breaking Dawn (no judgement people. My only hope is that Kristen Stewart is mute for most of it)
- We Bought a Zoo (interesting premise and Matt Damon)
I'm sure more will pop up as the (brace for it) holiday movie season gets hopping.
