Want to see a trailer for Star Wars Episode II
? Well, you can't.
Unless you see Monsters, Inc. this weekend, too.
Pixar Animation and Walt Disney announced that a trailer will "only" appear
along with Monsters, Inc, according to the pact they made with Lucas.
I see here that's it's written in BLOOD!
So if you don't want to pay $7.25 each, not counting the 50 bucks for small
popcorn, you'll be up the creek, naked, in a barbed-wire boat.
Not that one wouldn't want to go see Monsters, Inc
. It looks
At least it's not like when they said they were debuting a Lord
of the Rings trailer last year along with a Kevin Costner movie about JFK,
and then I went, and paid them money to see the trailer, and then they didn't
show it, and then I was Costnerized for what seemed like six to twelve hours.
Moral of the story: Ask the theater guy if, for good and dad-gum sure, they
really are showing the trailer before the movie. Hopefully he will not say,
"Unnhhhh. What trailer?"
