    Kids and holiday obligations won’t allow me to catch this opening weekend. Though I will be seeing it in the theater eventually.

    With everything I’m reading about the 48fps experience, in particular with how it calls attention to the artifice of CGI, I’m wondering whether this was the best movie to introduce this technology to audiences. Certainly isn’t getting the same kind of love Avatar did.

    I will be catching it on Thursday, opening night, in my local movie house. But I’ll have to head in to town (Dublin city centre) to see it again on Mon, in 3D, in IMAX, in 48fps.

      Looking forward to your review of 48fps.

    The plan is to watch it Friday with the ladyfriend. We’re both really looking forward to the movie, but we’re even more excited for Les Mis later this month.

    I’ll see it on Monday in IMAX. Whether it is in 48 fps, depends on the theatre.

    Oh I’ll probably see it at some point in the next year (there’s a great 2nd run 2-dollar theater next to the chateu de BRZA), but I’m still grumble-cakes about this whole trilogy business.

    I’ll be waiting for DVDs. I would enjoy seeing it in the theater just for the chance to see the visuals on the big screen, but being deaf makes it quite difficult to fully enjoy a movie until I can see it with captions or subtitles (and I don’t have anywhere within reasonable distance that plays subtitled movies other than really old martial arts flicks occasionally).

    I also just do not have the funds to justify seeing it in the theater. If someone offers to take me, then I might go, but otherwise I just can’t really afford even the discount early weekend shows.

    Normally I would be watching something like the Hobbit on Opening Night, but because of the holidays, I’m going to delay seeing it until I visit the rest of the family and we can all go together.

    I’d see the midnight showing but it’s too freaking cold for that. Opening day works for me.

    If I didn’t have so many CHRISTMAS things to do this week, I’d see it on opening night.. wish they wouldn’t wait until people didn’t have time to see it.
