Excellent. I wanted to see it really bad until somebody slipped about all the all-in-one shot gimmick, and that somehow soured me on it. I'm jazzed about it again though after all the awards buzz... not because it's nominated, but because none often awards have anything to with the gimmick.

For the record, a third of the movie is Keaton in his dressing room reacting to a voiceover. So, you know, give me Michael Keaton and a camera and I can do a "all in one shot gimmick" as well!

New Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. They're doing some fucked up thing with the framing where the actual "letter boxing" reacts with what's going on on screen. If this is the future of action movies, I'm going to start watching more period dramas.

They're testing it out to see if we'd object to them running ads along the top and bottom of every movie.

Also -- is that Melisandre I saw?!

No, it's Elizabeth Olsen. I'm easily confused because I've never seen the actress who plays Melisandre wearing clothes. Ha, ha.

I think I've reached Avengers 2 saturation. Make no mistake, I think it's going to be good, but there's a news item about it every single day and has been for a month now.

I reached Avengers 2 saturation shortly before Avengers 1.

I'm still standing by my "Marvel's first flop" assessment of Ant-Man, but there's a bit at the end of this trailer that made me howl with laughter.

What determines a flop for you?  Box office revenue?  If that's the case I think Marvel is becoming like Apple.  People will buy the product no matter what.

Sirharles demands a grading rubric. Fine.

I predict it will be both a critical and financial failure

Critical means a less than 59% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, their own "certified rotten" rating.

Financial is a little tougher. I can't dig up the budget and I'm pretty sure with Edgar Wright's eight year's of development that's intentional on the part of Marvel and Disney. The below article in Forbes (from last August) says "less that $400 million worldwide would be a disappointment."

http://www.forbes.com/sites/scottmendelson/2014/08/19/guardians-ant-man-and-why-marvel-should-not-fear-a-flop/

I'll get a number before the movie is released. (July 15.) It'll be an overall number not an opening weekend deal.

Does that "less than $400 million" also factor in the billion dollars they'll make from merchandising?

That's Forbes number not mine, but I think I'm only looking at box office. I'd like to discern a budget before I agree on the $400 million number, but if it ends up I can't find one, I'll stick with that.
