If this indeed comes to pass it will be a big boon to mankind…apparently trailers are going to have time limits on them in the future.
Another interesting twist is they want trailers to be shown only five months before a movie’s release, with “two exemptions a year on both trailer length and marking lead time” for distributors.
Of course, there are plenty of studios and directors that will protest this. (A lot of movies start promoting a year before the release date to build anticipation.) In addition, The Reporter ran a poll where readers feel the trailers give away way too much, which is also true, and it would be nice to see some regulations on this as well.
