Evan's almighty adverts

Jun. 4, 2007by:
This is certainly not the summer to skimp on movie promotion. You've got SPIDEY, PIRATES, DIE HARD, TRANSFORMERS, BOURNE and a bunch of other major movies that are demanding attention, so why then is there no love for EVAN ALMIGHTY? Apparently this is the question that writer/director Tom Shadyac is asking of Universal. Shadyac is quoted as saying

"I'm not seeing any ads, and I don't know why. I'm not getting answers. People are giving me information that isn't true ... I'm only hearing about all the other summer movies, and nothing about mine."

And to a degree, it's pretty true. I haven't heard a thing about EVAN ALMIGHTY. And while it's possible that Universal may be trying to save some of the money they spent making it, it would probably be better to do the whole mega marketing campaign thing and then make the money back because everyone wants to see your movie. Personally, I don't really care about this film (totally unnecessary in my opinion), but I still feel for the guy. Plus the he made DRAGONFLY. He needs all the help he can get.
Extra Tidbit: Shadyac cast Jim Carrey in his first major role, ACE VENTURA.

Kidding?

You haven't heard a thing about Evan Almighty? Do you not watch TV or go to the movies, ever? I swear the past three films I saw in the theaters had a trailer for EA attached to them. I think I've seen Steve Carell shave his nose hairs more times then I can count.

I love Steve Carrell to death, but damn if this movie isn't going to be an unfunny suckfest.

blah

It looks like a movie with some good moments (weirdo with a beardo) but the idiotic trailer shows: Evan talked to by God, Evan growing beard, Evan building ark, Evan collecting animals, Evan finishing ark, and Evan sailing on water in ark. All in the trailer. If that doesn't spoil the whole movie, I don't know what does. Whoever made that trailer should never make another one again.

this movie could have all the ads in the world...

...that's not gonna make anybody wanna see it, because it looks like crap. I remember watching about a dozen trailers before KNOCKED UP, and the only trailer where hardly any people laughed was EVAN ALMIGHTY. And when you take into account they were showing trailers like GOOD LUCK CHUCK, WEDDING DAZE, LICENSE TO WED, and I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK & LARRY, that really shows you're in trouble.

I've seen ads...

...and they're not funny. Not one bit. It's the same shots of Carrell shaving his nose hairs and the cheesy CGI animals walking around. This movie looks dumb, and the fact that they wasted so much money on it is even dumber. I love Carrell, but he's not the actor to be headlining a movie with that large of a budget, at least not yet.

I've seen a bunch of adds for it...

...and I think it looks like crap. Steve is a funny guy...but in a PG movie? Not so much. The studios are at fault and not becasue of the add campaign, they shouldnt have let the movies budget get as out of control as they did, then it wouldnt be a problem if it flopped or not.
