  1. People in Portland (not sure which one) and Orlando, Florida have unlocked early screenings thanks to the "#____LovesKong" campaign. People can RSVP here:
  2. The beginning of that trailer hit me like a brick wall and genuinely made me feel sad. I'll look for it. Hopefully it's in my area.
  3. $280 million on the low end, $330 million tops.
  4. Probably not a surprise to most of us, but Patrick Stewart says Logan will be the last time he plays the role of Charles Xavier. So it's the end of an era for two characters. http://ew.com/movies/2017/02/24/patrick-stewart-x-men-retiring/
  5. Back in the days when I lurked, tons of people were excited for Godzilla. So to answer your question, no. And I'm not really hearing any negativity. Only repeated remarks that there is little buzz for this movie. The difference is again, based on huge buzz. Which Godzilla had leading up to its release.
  6. Scified....of course. Never mind. The budget's up in the air. Scified has reported false information too many times for me to trust its validity.
  7. Fixed. Also...assuming that it had high overseas numbers, that domestic gross would more than likely be very favorable. But then again, your multiplier is off. For Kong to open at $43 million and accumulate a final domestic gross of $162 million, it would need a multiplier of 3.77 after it opens. That's unheard of for a movie with that low of an opening. I'm guessing you're new to this. Added note: WaterTower Music just revealed a track from the movie on YouTube.
  8. Get Out February 23rd, 2017, 7:00 PM, 45% full Park Place Stadium Cinema | Charleston, WV The crowd was lively during this film. They were bonkers, too. I'm surprised I enjoyed the experience as much as I did because of it. Most were either high school or college kids. Trailers: T2 Trainspotting - No response. Kong: Skull Island - Two teenage girls (I think they were girls) stood up to take a selfie. They were on the other side of the row I always sit in, at the very back. Some laughter at John C. Reilly's character. Alien: Covenant - Whispers and laughter for some reason? Weird. Power Rangers - One kid two rows ahead of me said (and I quote): "Bullshit." The Mummy - Silence. Fate of the Furious - The audience got loud very, very quickly. I could tell that they enjoyed it. I liked the movie, but there were 46 people seated. By the end of the film, there were only 35 people. A chunk of them left during the second act. I think it failed to click with those who left. Otherwise, there were moments of awkward laughter and some people even jumped at certain parts.
  9. Saw it. Just like most horror films, I didn't find it scary in any way, shape or form. However, while it failed at being scary, it IS a horror film with brilliant satire and superb, comedic delivery. However, a significant number of people were leaving the theater during the film. There were 46 people in the beginning. Near the end, there were 35. Not all of them appeared to be in groups. There will be a number of people who don't understand the messages that Get Out conveys. It's not the average horror film in more ways than one.
  10. New website has gone live. It gives some information about Kong and the Skull Crawlers, as well as some other background details. People who want to go in blind may not want to read this. http://kongsized.kongskullislandmovie.com Also, here is another promotional image, this time for screenings in select cities.
  11. I'll be seeing this tomorrow night. The last time the trailer for this played in a theater, people were laughing at it. I don't know if that's a good thing, but whatever.
  12. Yet another TV spot. I'm not going to watch it. I will wait for March 9th. But hey, Brie doesn't look like "just another pretty face" if the thumbnail says anything.
  13. I really, really, really hope I'm wrong about this, but count me in.
  14. They did a similar thing for Godzilla, so that may not be the case. But it is a fact that this movie's buzz is sadly low.
  15. Yvonne Strahovski (best known for starring in the TV series Chuck) has joined the cast for The Predator. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/yvonne-strahovski-joins-shane-blacks-predator-978541
