    I always like individual character posters better. These ones are always a bit too crowded and make me feel a bit disjointed. Can’t wait for the film though.

    Yeah, I believe they settled all of that a couple of weeks ago. WB just paid up.

    I’m officially old. I have no idea, except for the superhero? angle, what this movie is about.

    I may want to see this but I don’t know, man… 300 was bad.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t envision this being a mega-hit? There’s something about it that just spells…box office dissapointment. It may have something to do with what ‘Felix’ said: what in hell is the film actually about?

    You know KBJr, I have thought that, I’ve had a feeling it might have a disappointing opening, like around $6 M. But now, not so much. I think it could pull in 50. I know it’s R. But if you have ever read the graphic novel, no way this could be PG-13 without messing everything up! It’s funny, the R rating might come back to bite it, box office wise. But I’m not sure, I will definitely check this out

    What Synder did with 300 is what is keeping my enthusiasm at bay for this one. I certainly don’t think it will dissappoint at the box office, though I have a hunch that artistically it will be a let down. I mean c’mon, putting an emo cover of “Desolation Row” over the end credits. Synder should have just raped a pig instead and recorded that. And I know many people who have said that Synder fought against the studio to get the long running time and also to keep certain aspects of the novel in the film. While some people think that this assures its artistic greatness, there is such a thing as art becoming over-indulged and pretentious. And Synder has certainlly never shown us he can carry any kind of art thematically for more than two minutes without putting in a slow-motion, unrealistic battle scene.
