Good for word of mouth, but lack of any of that non SR stuff in these trailers and I see a possibly sub 90 mill opening.

Impossible to know, there are so many variables, Returns vs Superman's sheer brand recognition...Nolan's brand, the release date..

Those early numbers are going to be really really exciting to hear I'm sure.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
