I'm not saying it would have made a difference in getting a sequel or not, but singer should have trusted his instincts and NOT that friends and family screening. They cant be objective.

Well...they were right, though, and a screening like that IS for objectivity, because they weren't there for the whole production, and you trust your friends to give it to you straight. But I credit him for at least having the wherewithal to cut the RTK seq so as not to slow down an already somber film....rather than feeling he had to include it because of its cost. Unfortunately, he probably should have realized when writing it that it would be a long, morbid beginning with not mush pick-me-up afterwards. But you never really know until you actually put it all together, and if something is taking away from the experience and the story can survive without it, it has to go, regardless of how much it cost.

Which for you, as a viewer, was...what....the 194th minute of the film, or thereabouts?

I have a different theory......

Actually, to be fair, he was, technically, a bastard from the first minute we saw him either way...since Lois and Richard weren't married either.

You guys realize that the "Friends and Family Screening" wasn't actually only friends and family right?

To add to that, back in the 70's, Lucas screened an early cut of his sci-fi space-opera type thingy for some friends....which included the likes of Brian Depalma, Steven Spielberg, and Francis Ford Coppola. Apparently, the general consensus was that it was a bit slow, meandering, and antiseptic.....which motivated him to bring in some more editors and quicken up the pace.
