There's nothing quite like movie theaters. Going to the movies is always such a great experience. The atmosphere, the concessions, and of course, the movie displays! Whenever a movie is released in theaters, companies produce tons of extra material made to promote the films. Posters, standees, statues, and even publicity stunts are just some of the creative forms these can take.
There is a lot more to the release of a movie than the film itself. Lots of promo items and material is prepared and released to help boost the movie's chances of being a success. Almost any film you can think of has its own material. Alvin & The Chipmunks, Kung Fu Panda, Sonic The Hedgehog, Spider-Man, The Smurfs, and much more!
In this video, I talk about movie promotional items, statues, tie-ins, a marketing stunt gone horribly wrong, and more! Do you remember the time 7-Eleven became the Kwik-E-Mart for The Simpsons Movie? Or the time a Cartoon Network movie sent an entire city into panic? All of this and more is discussed in today's video. Let's take a look at some of the most fascinating pieces of promotion from some of our favorite movies!

  • I grew up in a really small and boring town but the weirdest thing that my friends and I found was a large Theodore statue for the 2nd live action film's theatre release in somebody's backyard. Just imagine, you're walking down the street in a suburban town and you see a sun faded giant Theodore with sunglasses in a backyard like an obelisk of some kind. We thought it was the funniest thing ever.

  • Movie theaters always make seeing a film more special and exciting. These promotions and merchandise proves just that. It's just a shame that the pandemic caused people's mindset towards them to change in favor of just watching the newest films on streaming. I'd hate for theaters to go away especially since the experience is very special in my opinion.

  • 07:30 When Covid came in, it affected the entertainment business forever, same with merchandising. 2021 should ease the tensions, and by 2022, it should be withered away, but living in a communistic society that is under the influence of capitalism. So really a combination of capitalism and political communistic. But the entertainment, once this is over, will go back to the way it was back in 2019 but slightly changed for the worse.

  • PatMac mentioned how there used to be contests for The Simpsons Movie, and his explanation about them reminded me of something I remember so vividly. Back in 2009 when Coraline was getting ready to release in theaters or when it was already out at the time, they had a contest for the movie where you could take a picture of either yourself, your friends, or your family, maybe all of them as well, and you submit them to the guys running the contest, And if they picked your picture, they would make it look like they sewed buttons over your eyes and maybe let you share it with the world or something like that. Looking back on that day when I was approached by that contest offer, I think I totally regret not having a good picture of myself to send in just so I can see myself with button eyes so I can see how cool it would have looked. But I was only 9 years old at the time of the film's release, and after seeing what Coraline would have went through, I was scarred for life and honestly thought I was going to legitimately have buttons sewed over my eyes since it sounded so real. Biggest regret of my life, no lie

  • Don’t ever mention those godawful movies again. It is just so forgettable it’s hard to even acknowledge their existence because they’re just that unrememberable! It’s best to leave them in the dust and make them disappear forever into the forgotten lands. Sure information exists but we should all forget they even exist and that’s for the best. Also, why the hell was that stupid animated movie from 2018 a theatrical release rather than a made-for-TV movie? It should have been a made-for-TV movie! No wonder it bombed. (Did I get that right?) Anybody know any films that were going to be released in theaters but said “f it!” and were released made-for-TV or straight to video instead. We know for VOD but rather I wanna know any films that were gonna be released in theaters but ended up on video or made for tv instead. It’s like they knew the movie was gonna bomb.
