Alcon’s Johnny Depp Failure ‘Transcendence;’ What The Hell Happened? – Movies open every weekend. Some soar, some fail.

“I’d Never Write Something Like That”: Wally Pfister Says Marketing Team Created Dialogue For 'Transcendence' Trailer – The common complaints about movie marketing run the gamut from campaigns that give away for too much before the movie opens, trailers that spoil key moments in the film or just flat out inaccurate representations of what the finished product may be.
