Usually you'll see a few posters here catch preview screenings before release night, so I think it's good to get this up there now.

Also, some may be interested, but different cast members of Avengers are on Kimmel all this week. Conan also has a most cast special later in week...

Review embargo in the US is until Wednesday morning. Should probably lock it until then.

This movie could have zero sneaks and it’s still going to break records. They’re confident enough and not willing to risk giving up spoilers too early. Once the sneaks start, people will start talking and posting everything.

We have our tickets for Friday. It's our first trip to the theater this year, and in Dolby Atmos to boot. We both took the day off work and figured we could make a day date out of it since she's due with our third child in about five weeks, it may be our last chance to get out of the house for awhile

At least until the next Avengers sequel comes out.

Correct. I may have been reading outdated information.

Expect my reaction in 2 hours.

Re: Avengers: Infinity War (Russo Bros., 2018) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

The reactions seem to be running the gamut from
"Feels like less than the sum of it's parts" to "Best ending for a Marvel film EVER!"

But when I see something like "Easily in the Top 5 Marvel movies" dished out as high praise, I gotta step back and go WTF? If someone who is still on a sugar high from seeing the World Premiere(!) thinks the climax to ten years of set up is possibly bettered as entertainment by four earlier films...then I'm guessing there are issues with it that will keep it from being an Avatar sized monster.

It also sounds like some of them weren't prepared for those "Gem Stone thingies" to be such a big plot point.

I thought it was incredible and might be the most impactful Marvel movie I've seen. It doesn't feel overstuffed but there are bound to be character arcs you don't care about (e.g. Nebula) that you need to get through in anticipation of other, better subplots.

It's either hype or Superhero fatigue.

Hell, I remember people saying Batman & Robin was the best Batman film when E! covered the premiere and interviewed celebrities/fans.

From what I've read, it still sounds like The Winter Soldier will never be dethroned as the best MCU film.

also.. spoilers are out in full force.
