Is there really nothing else to talk about besides Box Office predictions?

GREEN LANTERN Movie Viral Site Drops Hints at SWAMP THING, ADAM STRANGE & GOTHAM CITY

A viral marketing blog run by Dr. Amanda Waller (portrayed in the Green Lantern film by Angela Bassett) answers "fan submitted" questions that lend hints at other DC comic characters.

Well, there's the running time, but you were pretty dismissive of that one, too. Here's an idea: start a discussion on something you want to talk about. I just stumbled across the site and thought I'd share the info.

The new issue of Totalfilmmagazin will feature green lantern.
I haven´t read it, but I heard, that there is an interview with Campbell, in which he says that he won´t direct the (possible) sequel.

Will Martin Campbell Return for GREEN LANTERN Sequel?




GREEN LANTERN star Ryan Reynolds is on this months cover of Total Film Magazine, and according to CBM, an interview with Director Martin Campbell states that he may not return for a potential sequel.


UPDATE:
Thanks to "Ghostmaster75" we now have scans of the TOTAL FILM Green Lantern article.




Quote:
Inevitably, chat turns to the possibility of follow-ups. Campbell admits it will be nice to have all the backstory and complicated rules of the character already taken care of. "This film has become the instruction manual if they do any further ones. It's what we call pipe laying," he says. Not that he has plans to return for a sequel - like Bond, he loves 'em and leaves 'em."

That was fun; but it's clear that the writers have zero clue about comics or GL, and didn't bother to do the complex and demanding research work of reading some comic books :P And they get paid to churn this stuff out! And the writer misheard Campbell & made him say Bob Kane created GL (!!). I think Campbell said "Bill Finger" and the writers got it wrong.

But hey, we're on the cover of a major magazine!!! Woo-hoo!

You caught that too? :P

Campbell could have also been talking about Gil Kane, in which case, the cape/mask bit wouldn't make much sense, but the interviewer getting the name wrong would.

I like how Campbell said something to the effect of "I made the movie, now it's up to WB to sell it".....that cracked me up.

Possible! Either way you can see that the editors think that comics are stupid & an article about a comic book character shouldn't be vetted thoroughly. Morons...

At least there were no "POW" "BIFF" "BAM" lines which used to be in almost every comic-book-related article in the press (whether it was about Batman or not)...

Though obviously not with the same thoughts as the first posters to dicuss running time.
Now, you do!
I always check run times and so do my family and my friends (2 of them, anyway) I go with. How would you know if you have time to do something else, when you'll be done etc.?
Of course, I'm a bit obsessive, I also never start a movie at home without knowing exactly how long it is and when I read a book I always know exactly how many pages I have left in the chapter and in the whole book.

However, I really meant word of mouth. I have heard (on several occasions) people bad mouth a movie as too long to people who haven't seen it yet. I did it myself with the King Kong remake. That's what I mean. A two and half hour comic book movie may be a turn off to non-comic fans. People certainly do have a sense of which movies deserve a long time and which don't. Just compare the average run times on major dramas to comedies and action flicks.

I always assume a movie is 2hours long. And if you WANT to do something after then go to an early showing. Are people not aware that theaters open very early? I understand the kid thing sure, but I have never checked running times. When I want to see a movie, I'll see when I have time, find out when its playing, and get there 15-20mins beforehand. Yeah sometimes there's no good restaurants open after a late showing but you knew that when you left the house at 8pm...

I only consider running time if it's a movie that I am on the fence about, if its over two hours and I could be happy just waiting for blu ray, then I will skip it. as for movies such as Gl and movies I trully must watch in theaters, I learned from return of the king to at least be aware of how long I will be in the seat, as I never take bathroom breaks during the movies.

Great points West, let me add to that that schools will be letting out for summer break so it's not like little Johnny has to be in bed at 7:30pm on a weekday. I went to see Wall-E at night and there were plenty of kids in the theater. Time is less of a factor when school is out.

Oh man King Kong was just way too long. It lost my attention early.
If it's an action packed movie I am able to sit still a little longer. If you capture my attention then I'm not going to be looking at the time and time will seem to go by faster.

I didn't even think of kids being up/out late, I figured when Ed mentioned kids he was referring to their attention span.

I pay attention to run times because at least in Germany, movie theaters charge extra for films with a run time of over 2 hours.

Yet their economy is so much better than ours. I'd be willing to pay a couple of bucks extra in an economy where I could feel safely employed and where people didn't have to worry about finding employment. The German economy is thriving so they must be doing something right.

I was just trying to make a Nazi joke damn it, not turn this into a economic discussion.

Anyways, check your run times.
