At long last the movie Fanboys (http://fanboys-themovie.com/#/home-page) is being released Feb. 6th.

EDIT - Here's the info:

SEATTLE Theaters showing Fanboys (tickets not available yet):

1. AMC Pacific Place Seattle
2. Centurion Lincoln Square Bellevue
3. Regal Alderwood
4. Regal Parkway Plaza 12 Tukwila

Also - The AMC Seattle Cinerama will be playing Fanboys Friday and Sunday of opening weekend as they have a Sci-Fi short film festival booked for Saturday. To make up for it, there will be MIDNIGHT SHOW! Thursday 12:01AM. Tickets will be on sale tomorrow (Friday).

Cinerama website (http://www.cinerama.com/TemplateHome.aspx?contentId=1) - click on "Buy Tickets Online" at the top of the page (not available yet)

I'd like to hit the Cinerama midnight show, and if it's good enough I'll probably watch it again at Lincoln Square over the weekend.

I'm up for that. Midnight show sounds fun.

Still no online ticket availability yet. We're only 8 days away from the opening. I'm starting to think it would be best to just visit the box office.

They often do the midnight show tickets at Cinerama about a week before (for a couple of movies, it was the Monday before).

It's actually cheaper to buy them at the box office, unless you have a movietickets.com reward card thingie.

Thanks Josh. Got my ticket ordered. I'll probably line up after work that day.

So, there is a little confusion going around about what day this movie is actually showing. I wonder if anyone here wants to weigh in...

Do you think the line on Wednesday night, and the movie at 12:01am Thursday morning, or is the show at 12:01am Thursday night/Friday morning?

MaxWedge

My understanding is it is playing on Thursday night/Friday morning. The movie opens Friday, so it's the only thing that makes sense as 12:01 am Friday (Thursday night/Friday morning) would be the first time they could legally show it while honoring a Friday opening. I have never heard of any movie doing a midnight Weds/Thurs opening before.

I really don't think that this show will be sold out. Actually, I would be surprised if it's half full that night, if even that.

I am still undecided myself because I have to be at work early Friday morning ...

If anyone wants to carpool from the Eastside/Redmond area after work Thursday, let me know via PM.

Looks like we're meeting at Two Bells bar & grill (http://www.thetwobells.com/) around 9 pm before lining up for the show tonight. Two Bells is two blocks north of the Cinerama. Come by if you get a chance. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

WELL????

How was the movie?

I loved it. I thought they did a good job filling in the holes between what was shown at CIV, while keeping true to the cancer sub-plot. There were some hilarious moments, like the debate over Luke/Leia kissing, and chemically induced visions of Ewoks. And seeing Kristin Bell in slave Leia getup was nice. It's a must see for Star Wars fans, lots of inside jokes, and a Kevin Smith cameo.

I'm just not sure how well it will play to non-SW fans, and how many viewers it will draw in general. Last night only 50 or 60 people made the midnight show. For awhile there I thought the 501st were going to outnumber the movie goers.

I'll be picking this up on DVD when it's released, I put it up there with Spaceballs.

The movie got panned in the local paper yesterday (as well as on Ain't It Cool News) so I'm sure that's going to affect turn out.

I did read that many people had their hands on the editing process. And that the suits wanted the cancer subplot to be more prominent to attract more viewers.

It's going to come down to how many Star Wars fans are there, and how many will see this film. Seems like most of the reviewers don't know jack about Star Wars, so they'd be lost with 75% of the lines/scenes in this movie.

As for the cancer, it was in, then when Weinstein got his hands on the project he took it out, but so many folks complained (and threatened to boycott his movies) that he put it back in.

I enjoyed it and thought it was a fun movie, mostly for the star wars references. It had it's flaws, though. The plot was pretty predictable and it employed every "road trip" movie cliche'. Actually, even the star wars references were pretty cliche', but I suppose they had to keep them that way for the general public. Its a must see for a star wars fan, though, but that's about it.

I got to see it last night downtown in an almost entirely empty movie theater. The movie had its moments, but could have been better. I would have liked to see what they could have done with a bigger budget, or even Lucas himself showing up at the end ... fun movie though.

I was really surprised to see that was Ethan Suplee from Clerks and My Name is Earl as Harry Knowles. They pretty much nailed his unique look - perhaps that's part of why Ain't It Cool News didn't like it?

I thought it was a pretty fun movie...and the last bit where they ask: "What if the movie sucks?" Great ending. And in reality, we know how it ends...the prequels do suck! Who knew!!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Hey Tom, when I saw the movie and they said "What if it sucks?", my first thought was "Tom's gonna love that". http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
