its not the plot. im totally 100% happy with the cast,crew,story, look of the film, ect. nothing wrong it with there. infact, im veyr excited for the plot. I dont think this will be a classic ala superman the movie or Batman Begins, but more comparible to Spiderman, Superman 2, BATMAN in partiuclar, in thatll it be very big, fun and memorable, and will have a strong script that will keep it good, though the fun and special effects will overtake the film and steal the show. anyway-like i said, because im happy with that, im concerned for the films second most important thing: its box office. its release date, in particular. at first i loved the idea of releasing the most american hero onthe most american holiday. that and july 4th is usually home to big movies. but when i looked at the films have usually opened on july 4th weekend recently they include war of the worlds, whose 230 million dolalr gross would be much to small for w.b. then theres men in black 2, t3 which couldnt cross 200 million, A.I., which didnt even get 100 million. of course spidey 2 also opened over july 4th, but due to my next reason for wanting it moved, superman wont get close to that. so just from past history of the new millinium, the fourth of july is no longer the date for big movies. it did, house the releases of films like INDEPENDENCE DAY, MEN IN BLACK, ARMAGEDDON in the 90's, but it dont work these days. the biggest weekend of the year is the third week in may, which i want superman to have, but due to da vinci code and ovcer the hedge already having it, ill say **** that. my next reason is the sure to massiv epirates of the carribbean 2. while i think superman will open huge, it cant afford to have it legs chopped in half by that film. if fantastic four could make wotw drop 50%,imagine what that film could do. imo its just to be of a compition and with a better choice for a release date, its not worth the risk. my next rease for thinking it should change is that one of superman biggest-and arguably most important-genres is kids and june is loaded with kids movies. cars, nacho libre, garfield 2, charlottes web, click, ect. i just dont think thered be enough time for kids to get all into superman to make it an event that it should be. my next is the fact that it just isn't in may. may is when the big blockbusters are usually released and superman is in many ways the ultimate blockbuster film for the summer. that and while many superman its better for school to not be in seccsion, i disagree. word of mouth spreads much faster in school then it does without school, hence why mays weekends are always so big. So what would I do? heres my solution to fix supermans release date problem. Move Superman to May 5th, 2006. I would pay Paramount money and sign a deal to give mission impossible 3s-which currently holds that date-theatrical trailer with 100% of superman showings. on may 12th opens w.b.'s film posedon. i would move that back to may 19th as counter programing for da vinci code, where action junkies would flock to see it cause their not interested in daa vinci code. as it stands, posiedons action junkie audience could chose to go see MI3 as it stands. I wouldnt move it back till early april, so no film would have time to move up to may 12th, which would give superman, like spiderman had, its second weekend free of big compition. Giving Superman the first week of summer would not only give it may, its own weekend, but with no big films opening all of april, itd have an entire month to promote the **** outta the film and advertise the tie ins, it could give kids a chance to get very into it. plus with poseidon back a week, no film could steal superman thunder. but giving it that weekend would not only put it in prime position to became a huge hype machine, but also open hugely and have another huge second weekend. thats just my solution to what is imo the films biggest obsticle facing it.
