I have seen a lot more commercials for District 9 than GI Joe over the past few weeks, although GI Joe is ramping up.
Although I like Peter Jacksons last few movies, this one has yet to really get my attention even with all the commercials. Maybe that's why they are pumping more into media advertising

I was planning on seeing District 9, but I'll wait a couple of weekends. I'll probably see ROC as many times as I can since I'm a Joe fan. After I have seen ROC enough, then I'll watch District 9.

I'll be seeing both District 9 and ROC.
I think if ROC gets bad word of mouth that District 9 will do even better. If people like ROC, I can see it beating out District in week two.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?

District 9 will do very well but, District 9 is rated R, so ROC has a big advantage with families and kids.

I am excited for this. As far as bad movies go, let's face it, I don't think anything can be worse than the 90's Fantastic 4.
F5'ing since Slaughtergate '10!
I have extra MOTUC figures for anyone looking.

Couldn't agree more.
Marketing for district 9 has been invisible.
Have been to 3 major cities in the past 3 weeks on business.
G.I.Joe is everywhere.
Subways, elevated trains, airports, billboards. I'm surprised that they havent found a way to beam it involuntarily to my iphone!
Whoever is marketing is doing a great job or has a HUGE budget. lets not forget that every time a kid walks by the toy aisle, there's another free commercial. There has been a preview in front of every major motion picture this summer. It will have a good weekend. It will likely retain its post the next weekend. District 9 will likely split audiences with Jeremy Piven's "Goods: Live hard, Sell hard." The date Crowd will likely be hitting "The Time-Travelers Wife" that weekend as well. What will make the difference in keeping number one is NOT what happens over the weekend, but what GI JOe does during the week with the kids and the fans.
There is not another Bang bang popcorn flick until gamer hits september 4th. Will it be number one till then? likely not. Will it remain in the top 10 and make cash? Yes.

For the most part, around here, I've seen G.I. Joe and District 9 advertised about the same amount.
District 9 looks kind of interesting (I may rent the DVD), but it'd be nice if the ads would give us some idea of what it's about. At least, the ones I've seen have said virtually nothing. They just show us some sorts of people, some shots of alien creatures, and a giant robot, and that's it. Visuals alone cannot get me into a theater. Give me an idea of what the movie's about first. Keeping an air of mystery about a film only works if you do it right.

District 9 won't have the same mass market appeal as Joe will.

I cannot wait to see this movie! Negative reviews or not. This is what I've waited for as movies got made about Transformers and Star Wars and Marvel comics... I waited and waited and now...bad or good. It's here! and I am gonna watch Snake eyes run around ontop of trucks is real life!
Everyone can go pound it...
I am ready for this.
I will have trouble not running to the theater once I get my tickets like a kid. And I'm 36.
It's time my friends.
