    While I was watching Thursday's episode of Attack of the Show! (on G4), they had a segment on summer movies: what will rule the box office and what will not? Well, one of the people they asked (Nick Nunziata) told them that "Superman Returns will do good" because his friend has seen a (get this) 2 hour, 51 minute cut of the movie! (Damn, that's a long movie!) But they said that it could be shortened down to just 2hours, 15 minutes. But still, that's pretty long. I can't get a video link from G4Tv.com, but if anybody finds it, post it here. And you can go g4tv.com, go to the AOTS section, and click on "The Loop: Summer Movie Preview" to read a little about it.

    I hope the 2hours, 51 minutes time is the one!!!

    I don't know how much I buy this. To cut out....35 minutes of the film would be fairly hard.

    Singer said it was going to hover around 2 hours and 20 - 30 minutes however, which to be honest is already a tad too long for the movie's younger demographic.

    By the way, what did they say about SR?

    Did they make a prediction? Who will rule box office? Who wont?

    Hey man, it's what they said.....buy it if you want to, but it was on AOTS.

    Really what they said was that there is a 2 hours, 51 minutes version and a 2 hours, 15 minutes version. And they're leaning towards the 2h, 15 m version. But, Nick Nunziata said that both version are excellent! We'll see...

    It was one of the Head chimps at CHUD. Not much better than anyone at AICN if you ask me. You mention Devin specificly, I'd say worse.

    Am i the only one annoyed by this whole "demographic this", "demo that"? If the movie is enjoyable people WILL watch. Some seem to forget Titanic. What did that movie have alot of? Love, and SR looks to have quite enough of it to please the same type of people. God i just want great film that lasts enough for its necessity so that things play out smoothly and there's development to the characters , space for performance & entertainment as well!

    Well, everyone seems to agree that POTC2, SR, and Nacho Libre will do good, but X3 and others (can't remember all of them) won't do so good.

    Basically what they said about SR: "It's going to do good at the box office" and the thing about the running time. That's it!
     
  14. Extra cut..is what DVD was invented for.

    i think they should make a 2:30 cut for the theater and than 2:50 for the dvd.

    i think this is the best.

    I dont think that longer is bad... look at Lord of The Rings. Those movies were fantastic, and they were longer than the average movie

    aw... poor people, cant sit through a movie because it doesn't fit to their life.


    Make time for it. Superman's been gone from the theater for over a decade, and he deserves that much running time.

    some people are saying that titanic was long and it make huge BO. i am saying that this movie is not like spiderman because it is not everything new.

    people wont think that it is something so special to be 3 hours in teh cinema.

    i am hoping for 2:50 :up:
     
  25. The movie is about the same as BB.. perfect i think for an entertaining flight i think.
