It’s happening again. Just like with the upcoming Transformers movie, I’m once again faced with a super-cool media blitz for a film I won’t be allowing my children to see. This makes me feel like a mean old lady, which in turn makes me sort of grumpy.
And really, I was able to distract my son from the first movie’s television presence. A human torch is pretty exciting, and all, but somehow he didn’t show much interest. Maybe it was because he was younger. But now? I don’t stand a chance. That Silver Surfer dude is zinging all over the place and I always know the commercial just came on because I can actually hear my son’s jaw hit the floor. It’s pitiful.
My son’s disappointment notwithstanding, the hotly-anticipated flick won’t be out for another month or so, and maybe you’re pretty excited about it, yourself. I’ve got a couple of distractions for you while you wait.
First, check out the chances to win fabulous prizes over on the official movie site. There’s an instant-win game as well as sweepstakes to win a hometown screening or a trip to the London premiere.
Second, there’s a great interview with the cast up over at Comics Continuum. They all sound really invested in their characters, which I have to admit surprised me a little. It’s a fun read for sure, and a great way to get ready for the movie.
Now I just need to cross my fingers for a PG rating. Or at least that we find one of those silver quarters this weekend.
