aquaman early buzz

We’re a month away from the theatrical release of Aquaman, but Warner Bros. seems to still be testing the waters with the comic book movie starring Jason Momoa and directed by James Wan.

At least one more test screening for Aquaman appears to have been held in California recently, with more reactions pouring in from the lucky audience members selected to come aboard. And the Aquaman early buzz seems to be much the same as before: mostly positive.

a quiet place test audiences

A Quiet Place may elicit nothing but screams and terrified shushes now, but once upon a time, it made audiences laugh. And not intentionally. John Krasinski‘s riveting horror film wasn’t exactly a nail biter for test audiences, who saw A Quiet Place before most of the VFX was finished. As a result, they got to experience one of the best horror-comedies that the rest of us plebians will never got to see.

Aquaman gave a select few audience members permission to come aboard for early test screenings of the Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe film. So what’s the verdict? A little murky, since audience members didn’t share more than a few vague reactions to the comic book movie. But for the most part, it seemed like Aquaman made quite a splash.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 test screening score

Crank up the hype machine: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is shaping up to be an even bigger crowdpleaser than the first one, at least if test audiences are to be believed. The James Gunn-directed Marvel sequel has scored a perfect 100 in an early test screening — an extremely rare feat and the highest ever number for a Marvel movie. However, there are a few caveats. More about the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 test screening score below. Read More »

Fantastic Four early buzz

This week brings the release of 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the comic book franchise Fantastic Four from director Josh Trank. We haven’t heard much about the quality of the film as far as audiences are concerned, but some of the buzz behind the scenes had people worried and skeptical about the movie actually delivering a satisfying reboot. And now that the critic reviews are starting to come in, it looks like fans have something to worry about. Get the Fantastic Four early buzz after the jump! Read More »

Amy Adams in Big Eyes reviews

I’m sure I’m not the only one who kind of forgot there’s a new Tim Burton movie coming out this year. That movie is called Big Eyes, and it tells the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who becomes famous as a painter, for his images of people with big eyes. The truth of his life, however, is that his wife Margaret, played by Amy Adams, is the actual talent. He’s been stealing her credit.

With Burton, Waltz, Adams and a Christmas Day release date, Big Eyes sounds like a sure fire Oscar-contender. But no one knows for sure until that all important first screening, which took place Thursday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Did it work out? Read a bunch of early Big Eyes reviews below. Read More »

Kingsman: The Secret Service review

With all the release date shuffling Matthew Vaughn‘s latest film has endured, one could assume it is no good. The film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, had multiple release dates before settling on February 13, 2015 in the U.S. Usually that’s a sign of weakness, but perhaps not in this case. Based on a comic written by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service has begun screening for critics and fans in the UK and the buzz is as if the film never moved a muscle. It seems Vaughn has made a film that’s very much in line with Kick Ass, but with bigger action, bigger stars and even bigger possibility for franchising.

Below, read some early buzz on Matthew Vaughn’s latest film, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Read More »

X-Men DOFP Header

The first press screenings of Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past took place on Thursday in preparation for this weekend’s press junket. Originally, attending press were going to be embargoed from posting their opinions, but Twitter blew up immediately following the film. It seems the reaction was so overwhelmingly positive, 20th Century Fox had no problem letting people know they’ve apparently got the goods this summer.

We’ll have much more on X-Men: Days of Future Past as we approach its release on May 23, but below, read the first reactions for the film. Read More »

Mad Max Fury Road test screening

We’ve been waiting for Mad Max: Fury Road for what feels like eons, and we’ve still got a little while longer to wait. Though the film started shooting in 2012, it’s not hitting theaters until 2015. And so far, all we’ve seen from it are a couple of on-set photos.

But last night in Burbank, a group of people got to sample a whole lot more. Warner Bros. had a test screening for a rough cut of the film, and the first reactions from the showing have started to come in. After the jump, get a taste of the early buzz from the Mad Max: Fury Road test screening and read a new official plot synopsis.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Teaser header

Some said it lived up to it’s title as “Amazing” while others felt it was a mess. Read a bunch of early buzz on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 below. Read More »
