I agree with all and I disagree with all. Yes the movie is made for fans and not critics but if a studio believes they have a turkey on their hands, they take the road they have taken. No screenings, no premiere and even very few if any test screenings which is very bad. Telling people the film is still being tweaked is a load of shit and we all know it. The previews, clips etc have been inconsistent. There is one thing for sure, this will make 25-30 million and drop a whopping 60% the following week. If FOX believed the word of mouth was going to be good, then they would screen the movie. A LOT of people want to see what sites like Rotten Tomatoes are reporting before they go and spend $8 on a ticket. I hope it is good but it really isn't looking good. I could be wrong but Riddick was not pre-screened for critics either and IT was BAD. I heard the budget thing before and I am pretty sure that is correct. That was the reason this was happening on earth (present day) and NOT space. The dumped a $70 million film into August where it will almost be impossible to make back its money at least domestically. Not that it matters because the alien movies have always been bigger hits overseas including resurrection, which bombed in the states.
