New 2017 Spoiler Policy
 
First, a slight adjustment for a movie’s main thread: no untagged spoilers within four (4) weeks of its North American release. After that point, spoiler discussion is allowed. For other threads (in other words, in all threads except the movie's main thread), no untagged spoilers until the movie is released on home video in North America. "Released on home video" means Digital HD or Bluray/disc, whatever comes first.

 

In a specific movie’s thread, you don’t need to specify what topic you’re spoiling. In general threads, tagged spoilers are fine, as long as you indicate what movie it's for. For example:
 
(INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE spoilers)

Maika Monroe’s scream is powerful enough to destroy alien shields.

 

Note: When a big blockbuster has a special Spoiler thread and another Spoiler-Free thread, spoilers are not allowed in the Spoiler-Free thread at all. The threads will be merged after the 4-week window and at that point it can be treated like a normal thread. This is the same policy we have right now, so people should be familiar with it.
 
Some movies do not have a theatrical release and go straight to VOD, or were produced specifically for streaming services (Netflix, Amazon). For those projects, we will assume a reasonable 2-month "theatrical" window where spoilers will apply. For example, if Netflix releases a movie on Jan. 20, spoilers would need to be tagged until March 20.

 

Suspensions/warnings/bans

Punishments will be up to the discretion of the staff, given the severity of what was spoiled and our interpretation of the intent. Someone who maliciously posts huge un-tagged spoilers for a highly anticipated movie — especially in an un-related thread —risks a long suspension or even a permaban. On the other hand, an excited conversation about a movie where someone accidentally slips too much detail into an answer may only get a PM, points, or a 24-hour suspension.

 

We think these new rules will help everyone, especially when it comes to platform releases around Oscar season and movies that have long international rollouts. That being said, we’re open to feedback and suggestions if someone has an idea they feel would help.

I hope it not be as boring as The Hobbit then will be great.

I watched the second Hobbit some days behind, isn't so bad like I though but still is too long and too boring some parts.

This is for the money of course but I would like see hogwarts again in movie theater for a long time.

While I agree it's more for the money, the fact that the script itself is handled by Rowling and will be more original than based on that book, I think this would work very well, actually.

I bet another movie will take that date too. They are not going to be afraid of this

FINALLY A RELEASE DATE!

 

J.K Rowling is the screenwriter for this, so it should be fucking fantastic! 

Glad you're here for this.  THE WIZARDING WORLD LIVES.

 

I think this has the potential to be huge WW.  Maybe not Potter huge domestic but big around 200 million. This will have a big nostalgia factor for the fan base, which consistently showed up for the series.  With Rowling doing the screenplay and that release date (which was always my favorite for Potter films) I think this is going to surprise a lot of people when the fan base shows up in droves.

When it gets within 6 months of release date I think you will here the Potter fandom loud and clear.

Well, that moved on quicker than I thought. When they said Rowling had unlimited time to make a decent screenplay, I really thought she'd take her time and make a good one.

We're still 2 1/2 years away from release. I would assume she's been working on this for some time now. What's the beef?

This actually sounds very interesting. The Wizarding and Muggle worlds back in the 1920s/1930s sounds fascinating. They could incorporate the Great Depression into it.
