Does this movie even exist? Are people gather in theatres to give Brendan Fraser a standing ovation in front of the one pic they have released so far?

 

No trailer, no poster, absolutely nothing. 

A24 is trying to stage off Even More Discourse and cruel memes as long as possible? But in a way, hiding how the character looks in the movie can be viewed as kind of fetishizing it...

If I remember correctly the trailer for mother! dropped about a month before it came out so it may just be an Aronofsky thing. Although this sounds like a difficult movie to cut an "exciting" trailer to sell to the masses for to begin with. I'm guessing they'll put out a quote-filled trailer soon to attach with the various adult-targeted movies (The Menu, Bones and All, She Said, The Fabelmans, etc.) over the next few weeks.

We waited endlessly for a trailer only to get a one-minute tease that tells people nothing with only a month to go? What was the point in waiting this long?

They clearly want to maintain a sense of mystery surrounding this movie.

 

This looks pretty moving. Go get your Oscar, Brendan!

this is gonna bomb, just send it to streaming

It's probably going to have the highest PTA of the year for a platform. This is the type of movie A24 excels at. It's an Oscar contender but appeal to younger demo as well. The trailer on Twitter is currently over 480k views

A24 put so much into the poster, they had nothing left for the trailer:

 

 

They had to give so much thought about slapping on a critics quote, a Snapchat filter, and Photoshopping a book shelf behind him, lol...

 

If A24 didn't want to show his whole body in the ad campaign, they could have done an illustrated poster.

Ok good. When do you think they’re expanding wide? January makes the most sense. 

Don't think they've announced a wide date yet but wouldn't surprise me if they wait until January when the release schedule will be barren following the holiday craziness.
