According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony and Disney are working to stop any leaks of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer before it premieres tomorrow.
My question is, why bother? I can’t speak for anyone else but I make it my business to not watch leaked trailers because more often than not they look like balls.
And besides, that there’re leaks in the first place it implies that there’s a demand for the movie that we haven’t seen for anything out there in recent memory and maybe Spider-Man: No Way Home could be the shot of adrenalin that the US box office needs, never mind the international one.
After all, if there was this sort of interest in The Suicide Squad (2021) that movie might not have been the flop that many people believe it to be.
So if I were Sony or Disney I’d just lean into the leak(s) with a sense of humor because if they come down too hard on the leakers it might distract from the upcoming release, which is something no studio in their right mind would want to do, especially with a movie like Spider-Man: No Way Home.
