Early reactions are almost always good. Especially when the studio hand feeds those they want reviewing their movie. So far fan ratings have been more reliable than critics.

I’ve heard Dark Phoenix isn’t review too well with the prescreens....wonder what’s going on with The New Mutants?

I really hope New Mutants is good. Dark Phoenix is a dead property now that Disney has control. It's the last gasp of Fox.

True, but the trailers have not really excited me for this so guess I was just intrigued to see some kind of positive buzz. Plus Disney/Marvel has been on a role lately it’s been awhile since I’ve really disliked one of their films. I kind of want to see this since it leads her character into Endgame and I know nothing about the character or backstory.

I’m still looking forward to Fox’s last X-Men film. I’ve been a big fan of their series of films for the most part. I want to see all of them (cast) on screen together one last time.

I have a feeling it’ll be good to borderline great movie. With it being an origin story/introduction for her, box office it’ll do better than Black Panther, but not by much. It’ll be a hype machine for End Game for sure.

Seriously doubt that it will do better than BP globally....which garnered like what....$1 billion total.

Also....it seems like Brie Larson has angered some with her 'white guys' comment....


Personally it looks like her comments were taken out of context but everyone wants to hop on something to complain about these days...

Haven’t watched the video, Wonder Woman did well, and how will people react once the Blackwidow movie is release?

BP was overhyped to heaven and back. This movie seems to have little hype. So, yeah, not sure it will top BP, but it is a Marvel super hero movie, so doubt it will be a million miles off BP.

I agree BP was highly overrated (as was Wonder Woman) but I don't see this topping BP at the box office, that movie made over $700 million in the US alone, no way Captain Marvel comes anywhere near that. Most of the "hype" I've seen online seems manufactured and it's almost like people are having to talk themselves into being interested in this. It may be a good movie but the trailers aren't doing much to excite me for it at all, admittedly I am starting to feel a little MCU fatigue but the marketing for this movie has been fairly boring yet obnoxious at the same time. She seems like she just woke up when delivering most of her lines and that "her..o" stuff is garbage, we know she's a woman so why focus on it? just let her be her own character without putting added SJW stink on it.

I'm interested in it.

I agree about the trailers, they really haven't done the movie any favours...but they did enough to make me wanna see what the character is about. Maybe it helps that I have never been a comic geek and don't know much about Cap Marvel or the Kree.

I have to watch it because of Avengers End Game; otherwise, I'd probably just wait for it to stream.

I'll wait for End Game. This'll be the first MCU movie I'm purposefully not going to see.

Got tickets for this Saturday. It will be the first movie I think I have ever gone to see the opening weekend. Im not expecting this to be fantastic and usually I would wait for the digital version to come out, but my wife wants to see it.
BTW, I think BP was mediocre at best. One of my most disappointing buys...Watched it once and will probably never watch it again.

For those that have seen it, question.

In the credits scene where the cat pukes out the Tesseract, is this supposed to pre or post the Thanos snap?

hmm...why isn't the spoiler showing?

Post. That's why Fury isn't sitting there.
