Spiderman 3

I saw the midnight showing last night. It was okay. Better that the 1st two but I felt let down. Anyone else planning on seeing it?

I most likely won't see it in theaters, and probably not on DVD, but I find the release date interesting. At first I thought they were crazy having it open on the first weekend of May, but after thinking about it more, it seems like a genius move. It's the type of movie that will have a huge opening weekend no matter what, but now you add into that the fact that there's really not much competition for it, and it should dominate the next couple of weeks. Then, just as the box office numbers start to wane, it'll get a huge boost from memorial day weekend, which will lead into the summer movie season. I'm guessing it will gross $400 million plus domestically, and I'll be absolutely flabbergasted if it comes in under $300 million.

Unless, of course, the movie sucks, in which case...all bets are off.

No chance. The first two blew it hard, and I have no intention of watching this one.

And I'd venture to say the producers would agree, since they spent $300M to make it.

I'm going to see it tomorrow, but have absolutely no expectations. I thought the first two Spiderman movies were just ok. Most big budget, special effects driven movies are worth watching on the big screen.

I was talking about domestic box office. If it didn't make a dime in US box office it will still make $500 million in overseas box office, dvd sales, pay per view, mcdonalds/taco bell/pizza hut/coke/pepsi/whatever promotions, and merch sales.

I was entertained by the first two, so I'll see this one within the next few weeks I imagine.

I'll see it either tonight or some time this weekend. I concur that the first two were just OK at best, but I guess I'm just in it to see Venom.

same here, there's too many cheesy, feel-good moments for my liking (like the "you mess wit Spiderman you mess wit New York" bridge scene in part 1 or the "helping hands" subway scene in part 2) but i will still go see it, just not sure if this weekend or not

possibly littleknow fact, Sandman is Juggernauts form X-mens brother/half-brother or something. they're related anyhow

Tonight or 2morrow night. I liked the first much better than the 2nd, and have high hopes for the 3rd.

I'm predicting $140 mill opening weekend.

I liked the first, and the second was ok....

I'll probably end up seeing this one in the theaters in a few weeks.
