Would have liked a bit more of Martha (both alone with Clark and with all three of them), but then I am a big fan of Diane Lane. Didn't find the action sequences as long the second time through. I think my minor objection to their length the first time around owed much to having read complaints about that before seeing the movie. Will definitely be added to my shelf along with all the other superhero films I've got. Looking forward to the next installment.
Yeah compared to the neverending final battle in TF3, I didn't think the battles here dragged on too long at all. At least assuming you were still invested in the characters and hadn't completely tuned out by that point.

^ It's a holiday release. This way, you can pick up the set, enjoy the extras, and a few days later gather the whole family 'round the projector for a post-Thanksgiving supper screening.

If, you know, you hate your family.

It was released at the beginning of June and Box Office Mojo has sales figures for it up to August 15th. So no.

Heck, it's still playing at one local theater around here. (I saw it on the marquee this Sunday.)

That's impossible because the duration of the movie is 143 min.

Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

The box office has definitely slowed to a crawl. It's been inching towards $290 for a while now, but just can't seem to get there.

Still though, $649 million worldwide is pretty good for a reboot that most everyone supposedly hates.

They're a vocal minority if you ask me.

It did one amazing week as number one and then "Monsters University" trampled it.


November seems kind of late.

I was thinking that since Iron Man 3 is out on September 24th that "Man of Steel" would be out in October.

No commentary or deleted scenes? No buys.

I was hoping for an extended edition, but it looks like that probably won't come til later. If at all.

Well not every film has a commentary track. Some dirctors don't like them. But that still leaves the cast and other production members. But the studio has to spend the money on it.
