Thinking about early FREDDY VS. JASON publicity.
Y'all remember the hype-train that was Freddy vs. Jason, right? Well, I do. And recently, I've been thinking about it. And the initial false start the project had. So I'm going to take a quick trip down memory lane for a moment.
What's most intriguing about this poster art is that it wasn't just a close-to-the-vest project around Hollywood. Not at all. In fact, the main art on the flyer was actually used as a teaser poster and was displayed in a few theaters. Not many, but some.
Now, the original promo flyer was made in the very early stages of the original false start. However, the poster seen in theaters was, in fact, meant to be a teaser poster for what would become the 2003 film that was released. That version, too, encountered many roadblocks in the early days of pre-production.
But damn, we, the fans, were blown away by this publicity still. The ball was officially rolling. And rolling fast.
Then, in early 2003, we finally got our first look at the official teaser poster. Not recycled promo art from 1997. But a real-deal teaser. And it was cool. It did the job.
Okay, I'm done ranting. These are all just random thoughts I had this morning. Why? I have no idea. Have a great day!
