First Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 Trailer To Come With Tron: Legacy
To quote Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock, you can't stop synergy. If a company can use one of it's projects to boost another, why not? Why shouldn't Warner Bros. attach the trailer for Green Lantern to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I? It's just good business and we see it all the time. Now Disney is taking advantage. Jerry Bruckheimer has taken to his Twitter account and, in response to a fan's question, has announced that they are planning to have the first Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides trailer attached to Tron: Legacy when it comes out on December 17th.
This is actually a fairly brilliant move. While they have been hyping the hell out of Tron, the movie may not be a guaranteed hit simply because not everyone is familiar with the original 1982 film. Some fans, however, will show up to the theater just to get their first glimpse at Johnny Depp wearing eyeliner in another movie. The only way they could really screw it up would be to release the trailer before hand - but something tells me that they won't be doing that.
