Snagging a spot in the previews lineup for a huge movie like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a “must have” for any film wanting to capitalize on the popularity and audience market that a movie like The Hobbit will bring to theaters. We’ve already heard that those theater goers attending the IMAX 3D release of the Hobbit will get to see nine minutes of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness.
Now we’ve got confirmation that two more franchises are entering the fray with the announcement that James Mangold‘s The Wolverine and Zach Snyder‘s Man of Steel will both premiere their first trailers at Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
This is like the Happy Meal of nerdy movie goers delights. Not only do you get the hearty meal of The Hobbit, you also get a couple of meaty appetizers to start the whole thing off.
