imovie 2011

Well, I’m pretty sure almost everyone is excited about summer and making fun plans. Now, being a movie-buff, I’m excited about the movies being released this year. Among those I looked forward to were Fast Five and Limitless – both of which I thoroughly enjoyed, by the way. Still looking forward to seeing The Hangover 2, Immortals and Super 8.

I’m particularly excited about the intense action/superhero movies coming out. From 20th Century Fox – X-Men: First Class (June 3rd). From DC Comics/Warner Bros – Green Lantern (June 17th). From Dream Works Pictures – TF3/Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (July 1st). From Marvel Studios/Disney – Thor: God Of Thunder (May 6th) and Captain America: The First Avenger (July 22nd). And, from Summit Entertainment – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (November 18th).

In anticipation of these movies, I had the Pearl Kreations design team make six designs for five of them (with the exception of TF3) –I’m on the fence for the third Transformers movie installment. The reviews for Transformers 2 (TF2) weren’t very good and it didn’t do it for me either. I’ve seen the newest trailer for TF3 and all I saw was Michael Bay’s trademark – lots of kaboom.

If I do change my mind (which I’m guessing I will), it will be the same Autobot and Decepticon designs used for TF2 in 2009. The X-Men (X-Badge), Edward Cullen and Jacob Black designs are also the same as used for the X-Men Origins and The Twilight Saga: New Moon movies respectively. Just the Captain America (Shield), Green Lantern (Suit Logo) and Thor (Marvel Image) designs are new.

I asked William Turner of willYVerse to make a short promo video to advertise this year’s superhero movie buttons. It was featured in Pearl Kreations’ most recent post (released Wednesday, May 4th) on The SKA Blog along with photos of the button samples. Here’s the link – http://theskagroup.blogspot.com/2011/05/pearl-kreations-movie-buttons-2011.html. What do you think?

I think he did an excellent job. It might just become a new, exciting twist to our buttons promo initiatives. There is also a Pearl Kreations advert in the works – I’ll keep you posted on that.

My plan, as I wrote in my black book was for each of them to go on sale approximately a week before their Canada/United States release dates, and off sale a week after their release dates. As usual, they will still be available long after those dates, but probably not at the sale price of $2.00CAD/pin.

Thor (http://thor.marvel.com) is out today and I’m definitely going to see it. Only thing is, I don’t know if I’m up to hustling with teenagers/queuing up to see it in the night-time. I’ll probably see one showing sometime in the afternoon (2/3pm-ish) with my button on :D. Get yours too!
