    there wasn't any cheers of applause or anything like the avengers, but my crowd definitely laughed a lot at the humor that i probably need to rewatch IM3 a couple more times to get certain lines.

    I have yet to see IM3, but I know exactly what you mean. I saw Avengers like 5 or more times in the theater, and in the scene where Tony pokes Bruce in the side, I never caught Steve yelling "are you nuts!" until I got to watch the movie at home.

    It's been a week since IM3 was released here in the Phlippines and yesterday I was able to see the movie for the second time and I must say that the theater is still almost full. I was supposed to see it after lunch but the theaters are sold out so I have no other choice but to wait for the last full show, I was expecting few people but like I said it's still almost full, oh and some kid behind me is narrating what will happen next (his parents are trying to shut him up but the kid is too stubborn).

    I'm the major mental Marvel nut who goes tonight just to check out the crowds. I get a few friends to watch part of the film and then leave. So, I've seen 33% of Iron Man 3 and I love what I've seen so far!


    The crowds were dispersed this time around because both theatres I checked started showing it at 9 PM and showed it every half hour.


    Theatre One had one auditorium packed at 9:01 and one large one not even half full at 9:02. I did not check out the 3D showings.


    Theatre Two (largest AMC in the Midwest) had a VERY large auditorium half fill for the 10:00 3D showing. When I walked out 40 minutes in, there was already a big line for both the IMAX and regular midnight showing. A very good sign at 11:00 PM!


    I've done this before and usually can gage well but the early showings made it hard to gage crowds.

    I went to the 9pm 3D/IMAX show tonight, which was sold out. They started letting people in before 8:00. I heard someone in a group that came about 10 minutes before the movie started look at how packed the auditorium say to her friends, "Oh, we are beyond ****ed."

    They had a trivia contest before the movie to win posters. One little boy answered a question and got it wrong. The guy in front of him got the right answer, but as soon as they gave him his poster, he turned around and gave it to the little boy. Everyone applauded. :up:

    The crowd seemed to love the movie (as did I). Nearly everyone stayed through to the end credits scene, which probably got the biggest laugh.

    There was a guy in front of us with the light-up glove and the mask. When we were leaving, I saw him at the front of the line with a group of friends waiting to get into the midnight show. :wow:

    It was fun. I never get to do the midnight shows anymore, so I'm glad they had 9pm shows this tiume around.

    My theater was probably 75% full for the 9 PM show, but when I walked out into the lobby after it was done, there was a huge line for the midnight show. I would have gladly been there with them, but I've got work in the morning.

    This is the reason why I created this thread, I love crowd reports! Makes you feel excited by just reading it. During The Avengers I used to check the cinemas which is just a block away from my work to see how many people are going to see it. That's how excited I was for the Avengers last year :woot:

    My crowd experience was similar to the Avengers which is still the absolute most fun iv had at the movies. There wasnt the stand in the aisles cheering like at the avengers, but LOTS of clapping. It was a lot of fun and just reminded me why i do these first showings.

    No cheering. Sad.

    Got one excited gasp at [BLACKOUT]Pepper being alive/having powers at the end.[/BLACKOUT]

    And one fan exiting the theater said, "I loved it until about the last half hour. It's like they finished 11 miles of a marathon and just sat down before the finish line."

    i guess the franchise is still doing well enough to keep people paying for tickets, but there is definitely less excitement. from those that saw it, seemed a bit underwhelmed. surprisingly large amount of online critics disappointed in it as well. can't say i saw this coming.

    Yep. Honestly, this is one case where I wish the movie was just an extended version of the trailer. I would've been more satisfied I think.

    For me tons of people booed at the end of Superman Returns when I saw it in theaters ( myself included). Hopefully Man Of Steel will redeem the franchise after that abomination of a Super Man movie.

    Saw it the 3rd time yesterday evening and again, the crowd loved it. Almost everyone in the theatre sat through the 20 minutes of credits just for the stinger and I overheard people talking about how great the 'twist' was afterwards.
