I work in the advertising side of the movie industry. I'm not going to get into details or what movie it was but I once literally got to boss around some A-list celebrities once because of what you said. You are 110% correct; actors/celebrities are contractually obligated to do promotions for films and television shows they do. That includes but is not limited to TV appearance, promoting the movie on social media, attending premieres of the movies, and doing things like Comic Con. And not even the big names can get out of it, unless they own the production company and things they don't really have a say in contractual obligations.

Think Harrison Ford and Star Wars. Read his body language on every talk show he went on. You think he wanted to be on any of those promoting the film? It was contractually required of him to go on those shows and talk about it. In fact in general, I really don't think he wanted to do the movie except they offered him a delicious $20 million paycheck. They knew they needed him to kick-start the new franchise.

"I'm not going to get into details or what movie it was"

in short you don't work anywhere and you are full of shit.

Why is that so hard to believe? I'm not gonna jeopardize my career/working relationships saying exactly what movie it is to please an anon and win an internet argument. I will say it is an action movie coming out later this year, a mainstream/international big budget Hollywood movie, there is going to be at least two of them even though the first one hasn't even made a nickel (yet)...

I work in the web/advertising business in California. A friend/associate of one of mine somehow shoehorned himself into the film industry in the past couple years. Got himself casted in films as well as got involved in the executive aspects. I got to make the website and run the social media profiles for the movies. I was told that if I wanted anyone that starred in the movie to post/talk about/share things on social media (like Twitter, Facebook, etc.) they are contractually obligated to do so. I don't have direct contact with the stars but I can email the producers and things to do so. But I was in charge of the whole shebang for a little while.

It's really not all that implausible nor a big deal. It was only a contracting job for me. And if anything, they underpaid and took advantage of me on more than one aspect of the project. I bet they forgot to even put my name in the credits. But I was just making a point, they do sign contracts which obligate them to do things.

From what I've heard most actors get forced to do films because of contracts but not press. I'm not sure how that all works though.

The entirety of your body isn't a pressurized vessel my guy.

Do all your other jokes come out serious that you need to explain that they're not? Because that's the only way I knew..

It's happened often enough that now when I'm even remotely unsure, I include it to save myself some time.

I mean, given the recent reviews this isn't entirely surprising, but still.

I agree, the marketing campaign for Suicide Squad has been quite good, and it seems like it's more accessible to mainstream audiences despite not being a well known property, so I imagine it will have a better run at the box office than BvS
