Entourage "Medellin" Trailer To Premiere

All entourage.jpg

Well, it looks like HBO is going all out on this. Sort of.

'Entourage' fans have been waiting a long time for this (the diehard ones anyway) and finally, we are one step closer to truly finding out if Vincent Chase can really act.

Variety reported today that at their session of the Television Critics Association summer press tour held at the Beverly Hilton, HBO announced that a full two-minute trailer of the fictional film 'Medellin' will air immediately following this Sunday's episode of 'Entourage'. So stay tuned!!!

Apparently the gathered critics got a real kick out of it as they laughed and applauded afterwards. Which means, either it was great or it was just that bad. Almost the entire cast was there today (except the Pivster) and watched it along with the TV critics. Afterwards they all stayed to party the night away. I'm still waiting for my invite to one these parties, but I digress . . .

This Sunday's episode is titled "The Dream Team" and in it, Billy Walsh accuses Eric of leaking the trailer to YouTube. Which means of course that the trailer should show up some time this weekend on YouTube. It's not up yet as of this story and believe me, I've looked. Darn, I hoped to leak it myself!

Anybody that's watched the episodes this season will know that a couple of weeks back Billy gave Eric a copy of the trailer and we saw bits of pieces of it, but those with eagle eyes noted that at the end of the trailer a website was listed, (which is not up yet.) All of this leads me to believe that creator Doug Ellin has got a few surprises up his sleeve with apparently no help from HBO.

As I see it, HBO isn't providing much support because:

A. The website isn't up yet. It's been two weeks and all it says is "Coming Soon." C'mon guys how hard can it be to at LEAST post the teaser trailer that's been shown before and after the show for over a week now.

B. There is no promotion of this whatsoever. Nothing on the HBO website, no announcement in the news. Nada, zip, nothing.

C. Nothing in the newsletter. I'm on the HBO 'Entourage' mailing list and I got a newsletter promoting this weeks show a couple of days ago, do ya think they could've mentioned it there? Wrong again.

Don't they think that fans of their new "flagship" show care about this? C'mon they've talking about making this film on the show since the first season and that's nearly four years!!! And by the way, the announcement was almost an afterthought along with 'Entourage' making it's debut in India. Okay, that's weird.

Okay, calm down . . . breathe . . .

Anyway, I think the marketing folks over at HBO must of fell asleep at the wheel, do we need to take up a collection and send them some coffee or some Red Bull? Hey, that's a good idea maybe I'll send them a 10lb. bag of coffee or a case of the red stuff as a wake up call. Do I have to do everything? Oh, well.

Meanwhile, here's the teaser trailer in case you missed it and don't forget to check back on Monday to hear my thoughts on the episode. Enjoy!!!
