From what I understand, they will only have about 150 tickets per location. So they should sell out pretty quickly if you live in a fairly good sized town/city. At least, I would think so. I dunno, maybe nobody will show up. I'm just preparing for the worst.

I don't think mine will be really packed either. I don't really live in a crazy busy part of town. I also don't think most wont be rushing to Walmart at 8.

BAH, I hate working third shift AND weekends. Don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful to have a job. It's better than not having one at all, but it sure does suck! Oh well, I'm taking a full week off the week MOS comes out, so I've got that to look forward to.

Oh so it's 150 of each? Sweet! I thought it was altogether. IMAX 3D for me, please! The more 3D, the BETTER!

My local AZ store had a pretty decent turn out with about 15 to 20 people showing up till last minute. I was there at 6:30 a.m. this morning and was 3rd in line.

If you did your home work prior to purchasing your tickets you know that each walmart is corresponding with 1 select theatre. My Walmart is corresponding with an AMC IMAX which is why i picked this store to be at even though i live in another city from where the theatre is located. My walmart in my city is corresponding with a crappy local theatre.

I picked up 4 tickets all 2D as i want to enjoy the first viewing with no disruptions/distractions from 3D. I want to take it all in for all of its glory then on my 3rd or 4th viewing i may see it in 3D.

I met some great people and it was nice to say "Hey see you guys on June 13th at 7:00 p.m." Its going to be pretty much a nice private screening with a bunch of fans. Who could ask for more.

I also spoke with the manager on hand and they said that they would be at the theatre on June 13th in between 3:00 and 4:00 for give aways and a pre bash for the screening which should be great.

The tickets are on sale until they're gone. In some locations where demand is higher they'll go quicker ... but for example where I'm at, I'd guess we'll sell out of the tickets at some point, but not for several days.

Bought the Walmart S shirt today for $7.50. Other than the muscles being printed on it, he S is much bigger than the Hot Topic version. Also, you get what you pay for. The printing on the Hot Topic shirt is simply superior.

I would have bought the 7.50 blue MOS logo shirt along with my black and orangish/red MOS logo shirt, but I hated the muscles, so I had to pass on that one.

I ordered this book on amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/160...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and they're advertising the same one towards the back of the wal-mart movie guide but it doesn't have the picture reel at the bottom of the from cover. Really hoping it comes without the pictures on it, I think it looks much better without them.

Guess who saw MOS merchandise at the Megamaxi today? This guy! Wait, he also had two thumbsÖ let me try that again. Guess who has two th--ah, forget it. I saw it, is the point (minus MMs). And seeing a little kid whining about wanting one was only a bonus.

Btw, Iím onto greedy little Mattel. They sell you the Superman figure with the red neck and no belt buckle for only 11 bucks, but they know youíre not gonna want that one because the colors are off. So they sell you the other one with the right colors for 17 bucks, with the only difference being that two-piece grey bike that no one gives two craps about. So the red-necked one is left only for clueless parents whose kids will be left wondering why their figureís colors donít match with the movieís. So much for the customerís best interest.

Also, theyíre tiny. Whatís the deal with how small figures are nowadays?

Went to my theater to see "42" with my girl last night. They are selling Man of Steel cups (only in Large sizes) and Popcorn bins. I didn't want a drink, but I asked the dude what it will cost to just sell me the cup, no beverage. He said unfortunately, still $5.00, but then thought about it and said "You know what? That's ridiculous, $2.75." So that was cool of 'em so I picked up a nice big collectors cup for $2.75 haha.



Also got a pic takin with the poster. My camera sucks with bad lighting so I had to try to adjust it as good as possible. I'll get a better pic movie day.



They also showed the "Solider of Steel" National Guard spot beforehand. I literally put my head down, covered my eyes and was like "Aw ****, babe, I'm avoiding this. Not watching, not watching...." while I have to hear my girl "Ohmy, ooohh lala, wow, look..this is awesome...look! whoa! Aww, he's carrying Lois!" She ATE THE FOOTAGE up while I suffered. Dammit June 13th! Still too far away!
