The Chronicles of Narnia

While everyone else is excited by the Star Wars, i found myself more attracted to the advertisement of the movie, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" .

The animations are great and i can see that though the short advertisment on the tv.. I was pretty hipped to call up friends to watch the movie with me until i saw....

"22 DECEMBER 2005"


What the hell.. if they had noticed, now is only May.. why are they even advertising about the movie when there is still a 6 months period.. I dont see Harry Potter movie doing that (i will have gladly viewed that with no complaint as i LOVE Harry~~Ya.. it's double standard)

I wonder whether is it because the foreigners had caught our bad habit of Kiasuism... or are they trying to adapt to our Singapore "unique" culture.. Anyway, i was pretty put off.. To all advertising agencies, pls stop doing stupid things... "Diao Ren Wei Kou" meaning like setting a bait, is not good and the ppl wont feel good either.. At where i work, ppl kept asking for new albums that had not come out yet but were already advertised.. So pls spare ppl like me the agony of waiting... Thank you..


  • Hey!!! Yuan lai I'm not the only weird 1!!! I thought I saw the advertisements 2 days ago too, then I was too slow to catch hold of it, went gv.com.sg to check but no results. Hahahahz! I read 1 of the Chronicles of Narnia when I was a kid "The Silver Chair" Super nice book! =D I wanna watch The Chronicles of Narnia!!! Don't care le!!! Lolx...

  • Actually, it's standard for movie production houses to market their stuff way before release. Films like War of the Worlds and the cartoon Cars have already had their trailers shown in cinemas for like forever.

    It may also interest you to know the special effects in Chornicles are done by the same people who did the effects in LOTR.

    Thanks, i didn't know that.. No wonder it's so good...

    Now that you mention it, ya i think i saw the trailer for Cars before.. When i was watching Incredibles but i guess i didn't really catch much then..

  • a few days back in the Today paper, when they put up the picture of it in the movies section, there's this line that says "sneaks this weekend"

    I was like, WTF?! Serious ah?!!?

  • yeap, i was freakin shock that it'll be out on december 05 too. I love the trailer though. Maybe its a marketing strategy, just wanna create some fan base first ...

    Anyway, i love this kinda "beyond imagination" movie
