Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Major Spoilers Poll of the Week:
This week, Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in theaters across the United States and more than a few staff members are geared up for an opening night premiere. That means someone (Young Zach) is going to have to queue up extra early to ensure everyone gets a ticket, popcorn, candy, extra large soda, and a place to sit. It really is a lot of work just to see one movie on opening night. It makes one wonder if seeing a movie on opening night is really that important.

Will you see Captain America: The Winter Soldier on opening night?

Will there be any “Internet breaking” news that comes at the San Diego Comic Con this year? (comment here)
