When I went to see Civil War, everyone clapped when Stan Lee showed up. Then I couldn't hear what he said! It must have been pretty funny because a lot of people were laughing.
So, I'm biased against clapping in theaters in general.

He asked IM if he was "Tony Stank". The joke being that he was a near sighted geezer. I personally like to believe that Cap, in his anger, actually addressed it that way lol.

Similarly, I missed the "puny god" line from Avengers because people lost their **** when Hulk dishragged Loki.

Robbie is beautiful, but a **** actress.

Not true. She was great in Tarzan, and pretty darn good in this, too. There were several times during the movie when I almost felt like I was hearing the VA from Batman TAS whenever she had lines. The speech-patterns, her calling Joker "Mr. J" and "Puddin", the way she bowed or grinned and that manic look in her eyes at certain moments- she nailed it.

Cubed, this may come as news to you, but live theater is STILL popular. Broadway plays are just as big now as they ever were, and many theater productions go on tour across the country. Then there is ballet, local productions, etc..... And it's not just "old people" who go to see them. People of ALL ages enjoy the theater. Also, applauding after (or during) a movie is considered a sign of appreciation of the film by many, not just older generations. It's been a thing since the days of silent films. It's just a show of support.

Yes I know, but I would wager that outside of stuff like music tours, most youths of today don't really see live theater. Its mostly something from the 50's to early 90's era.

Happens all the time where I live when I'm at premiers. Biggest was Civil War when "QUEENS" showed up, (introducing Spidey) the whole theatre lost their sh*t.

Pretty rare for audience to clap from what I witnessed. But I know they enjoyed movies from their reaction throughout films.

This movie is a huge success despite what the critics think, I'm sure Warner Bros will want a sequel to this soon.

The only time I heard clapping was when the falcon and later Han Solo first appeared during the first showing of The Force Awakens. The audience participation meter was very high that night but in a fun way that didn't hinder the experience. No one was talking or loud, but simply showing emotion at the proper times.

Star Wars premieres are fun

Applauses during movie premieres is a huge thing around me too. Happens with pretty much any 'big' premiere at certain moments (Force Awakens, Civil War, etc.)

They did that here too during Civil War. As for people applauding, that happens more than I'm used to these days in Texas and Arkansas. I actually find it refreshing. I want to say it happens when most Marvel films are over, and I know it happened every time I went to see The Force Awakens last year. Around five times, I think. Guess it just depends on the crowd at the time? The kids probably did it at Suicide Squad around here too.

Suicide Squad had a 12.1 intake in its fourth weekend. Its enough to take just under 283 million domestic and 636 million world-wide. If it can top 300 million in domestic and 675 million overall I will be very pleased. Looks to be able to hit the marks I personally made for the film.

I did not realize it until now,not I just realized that Batman(Christian Bale) imagines killing Joker(Jared Leto) in America Psycho....

Not knowing who Jared Leto was when watching the film originally and it was before he took The Joker role I did not catch it. It adds a crazy new dimension to it all.

I had not seen that until The Force Awakens. It happened three times. The opening credits along with cheers, Han and Chewie's entrance and a third time at the end credits. Just before the end there were cheers when we saw Luke facing the ocean.

Suicide Squad is one of the highest grossing movies of all time, despite terrible reviews

Quote:
According to Box Office Mojo's chart, DC's 'worst of the worst' super-smash has now entered the list of the top 100 grossing movies of all time, pushing out Marvel's Thor: The Dark World in the process.

They defeated Thor!!

Critics opinions are ****. The people wins.

More stuff from that same article:

Quote:
9. The Question being developed for HBO as a smaller scale "gritty noir" show.
Great idea, he's one of their B-list characters that more people should know about.



Quote:
11. George Miller attracted to making a Jack Kirby property movie, working on Mad Max sequel in-between potential DCEU movie.
After his work on Mad Max, I'll bet his vision of the planet Apokolips would come across really well on screen.

Quote:
12. Man of Steel 2 is happening, Snyder not returning to direct.

13. Snyder no longer wants to return to direct JL 2, has opted out. Plans to direct a smaller scale movie for next project.
Who will fill the void?

Quote:
17. Darkseid could potentially be saved for JL 3, having more background development in other movies for New Gods and Apokolips. New Gods property being heavily eyed as a film.
I really want to see Big Barda, Mr. Miracle, and Oberon in their own film; maybe after the New Gods are fully introduced. It can be an action comedy like Ant-Man was.

It sucks that Jack Kirby didn't live to see his creations come to life like this.

Suicide Squad Passes $700 Million Worldwide
http://screenrant.com/suicide-squad-...e-700-million/

In a summer movie season that saw several high-profile titles underwhelm at the box office, one film that’s done quite the opposite is Suicide Squad, the third entry into the DCEU. Despite mostly negative critical reviews, Squad has gone over much better with moviegoers at large, having now spent 6 weekends in the domestic box office top five. Internationally, the supervillain blockbuster has performed just as well, having now made more profit outside the U.S. market than it has within.

This continues the extremely stark divide between critical opinion and fan reaction that began with this spring’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The first DCEU film, Man of Steel, was hardly a critical darling either, but made it a lot closer to earning the “fresh” distinction on Rotten Tomatoes than either of its follow-ups have managed.

Speaking of Man of Steel, Suicide Squad has now accomplished a feat some industry pundits initially thought wouldn’t be possible: it beat Superman. As of this writing, Suicide Squad has now hauled in over $700 million worldwide, handily eclipsing the $668 million earned by Man of Steel over the course of its theatrical run. Squad has also eclipsed MoS domestically, bringing in over $307 million, and climbing over MoS’ $291 million domestic haul.

The news of Suicide Squad passing yet another box-office milestone was confirmed by the film’s director David Ayer earlier today, via Twitter.



At this point, it wouldn’t even be that surprising if Suicide Squad ends up topping Batman V Superman’s domestic total, although BVS’ worldwide numbers might be a bit too far out of reach. In its fifth full week of release, Squad earned nearly $15 million domestically, and will probably have brought in around another $7-$8 million by the time week 6 is complete. That would leave Squad right around $15 million short of BVS’ domestic total, and it’s not hard to imagine Squad earning an additional $15 million before it leaves U.S. theaters. Either way, the two films will likely end up very close to each other on the domestic total list for 2016.

Even if Suicide Squad manages to edge out BVS domestically as the most successful DCEU film to date, the chances of it doing that worldwide are much slimmer. Even at over $700 million worldwide, Squad remains nearly $175 million short of BVS’ gargantuan $872 million worldwide gross. Still, if Suicide Squad has proven anything, it’s that it shouldn’t be counted out prematurely. Deadshot and company may indeed be “some kind of suicide squad,” but when it comes to the numbers, the film they inhabit remains quite full of life.

Well done!

"Defeating" Thor is not hard to do. His films are arguably the weakest of the MCU (though personally The Incredible Hulk is my least favorite).

Critics that are reviewing these movies could just as much be a fan of DC comics as you are. They want DC to make good if not better movies since they are also a fan of their older stuff. Just like those PD TMNT movies you fancy so much, a majority of us want better for these properties instead of just settling for crap.

While I enjoyed SS to a degree, there were plenty of flaws that painfully weighed down the experience for me.
