Default TV Spot For Trekkies

We've had ads targeted at the action movie crowd, the football crowd and many others, so why can't we have a TV spot aimed at us, the loyal trek fans? I mean, i think its about time we saw nimoy for more than 3 seconds!

I'm quite happy with the stuff that's been coming out - trailer 3 was a little more 'fan' oriented than the first couple but I've been sold on the film for a year, I don't really need any more convincing!

We know we're going to get that though,

And if they gave us all the little nods the writers suggest are there before we see it, it wouldn't be a surprise when we see it!

You know the 150 mil they spent on the film, I wonder if the marketing budget is separate because 150 mil doesn't go far in adverts and merchandise. I think they spent 3 mil just for the Superbowl 30 sec clip alone...

I don't think that TV clips are specifially designed for a target audience. Thirty seconds just make it hard to avoid fast cutting.

Oh they are targeted, this last TV spot is running around the Wrestling, fight night crowds with rockin fight night music....the previous was targeted to younger audience showing Kirk as a kid again shown on the kid networks.

I think the trailers are more or less not as targeted though.
