  1. I’m going to see it, but there’s no way I’m going near anything its opening weekend. Not that keen on stifling crowds, even at earlier showings.

  2. I have turned into a bit of a hermit it would seem. No desire to see any of these blockbuster movies in theatres, I will just wait for the Blu Ray and watch them in the comfort of my house.

  3. David Schmuck (yes, really) on

    The cost is what kills any thought of going to see movies in the theatre. My family of 5 would cost $50 just to get in.

    • Same here, the cost is the biggest reason I rarely see movies in theaters, although there are other reasons. Unless someone is taking me out to a movie as a gift (like for my birthday) or I’ve gotten a free ticket voucher/card/whatever, I just cannot justify the cost of going to see movies in theaters except for occasionally going to see something at the cheap theater (usually plays older movies that are already out on DVD or that are several years old, with a ticket being only about $2 – $5 depending on day, time and certain other factors). Even movies I really want to see usually have to wait until they come out on DVD.

  4. ok, I voted yes, but… Although that is my intention I do have to balance the Wonderful Wife, the Fantastic Five-year-old, soccer practice, and sleep. So… I hope so. I really want to.

  5. I agree with Pearce 100%. As much I liked the reboot with X-Men:First Class…this is not a MUST SEE on opening weekend.

    I don’t do opening weekends. I can’t deal with crowds if teenagers and people who don’t know how to use the phrase “exuse me”.

    I’m not quite as crowd-phobic as most people here, but time is a huge factor for me with my job, so I’m probably not going to see it til after opening weekend.

  8. While I definitely want to see this one, I just don’t want to deal with crowds. I will be twisting my dear husband’s arm to go with me while it’s still in theaters though.

  9. No, for the most part I am really am not a fan of theaters. I already went to see the Lego Movie and Cap. I will probably save up the next theater time for GoG

    I will, namely because a buddy just called and said he wants to see it on Friday. My expectations for it are rather low (the latest Wolverine movie is one of the only movies I’ve ever left a theater during), which is sad considering how much I like several of the actors and how much I like the characters.

  11. Voted no, but I’m on the fence. Maybe I’ll go see a matinee Friday, but I’m not really interested in the movie past “hey, comic book movie!” so we’ll see.

  12. It would be cool to go see it opening weekend, but my life just doesn’t allow for that anymore. I am just hoping to be able to see it in the theater.

  13. Gonna go with no, really disappointed that they brought a lot of the older cast back. I’ll watch it eventually, but I didn’t even really like Singer’s previous entries in the series.

  14. Daniel Langsdale on

    I want to see it opening weekend, but had to vote “no” since visiting family for the holiday weekend means I’ll be otherwise occupied.

  15. I have no choice, I always criticize these movies (Ultimates Universe) from an informed point of view. I don’t think it will be good and I’m probably right.
    So this was the last Spiderman under Sony right?
