Collider Movie Talk – Batman V Superman Expectations, Early Spectre Reviews

On today’s episode of Collider Movie Talk (Thursday October 22nd 2015) we discuss the following topics:


The new James Bond film SPECTRE hit theatres here in North America in just a few weeks, but the first press screening was held in London and the initial reactions are making their way online. The response to the film seems to be mostly positive but also a bit mixed. The Guardian wrote: “Spectre review: James Bond is back, stylish, camp and sexily pro-Snowden” and The Times writer Kate Muir tweeted after the screening: “Shall be giving #SPECTRE the full five-star treatment in The Times tomorrow”. However, a writer from The Playlist and Yahoo Movies tweeted: “SPECTRE: Quantum Of Solace 2: This Time It’s Personal. Bad action, lousy plotting, Lea Seydoux only redeeming feature.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter ANT-MAN director Peyton Reed is currently in talks to return for ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, the sequel to the film already set for a July 6, 2018 release date. The first ANT-MAN film loved by both critics and audiences alike scoring an 80% critic rating and an 89% audience rating and also exceeded studio expectation by making over $454 million dollars worldwide.

A brand new trailer for the upcoming Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg comedy DADDY’S HOME has just hit the web. Daddy’s Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) who strives to become the best step dad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids. DADDY’S HOME hits theatres on Christmas day.

OPENING THIS WEEK (brought to you by AMC Theatres)

First up is the final installment of the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION. The discovery of a video camera leads to strange events in a family’s new home.

Next up is the new Bill Murray/Bruce Willis film ROCK THE KASBAH. While visiting Kabul, Afghanistan, washed-up rock manager Richie Lanz (Bill Murray) gets dumped by his last client (Zooey Deschanel). His luck changes when he discovers Salima Khan, a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice who dreams of becoming the first female to compete on the television show “Afghan Star.” With help from a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), two war profiteers and a trigger-happy mercenary (Bruce Willis), Richie embarks on a mission to make sure his new star gets discovered.


Mike Foster writes: Greetings Collider crew, according to Box Office Mojo Jurassic World opened on 4291 screens earning the highest opening weekend of all time, and the most opening weekend screens is 4468 for The Twilight Saga Eclipse. How many theaters do you think The Force Awakens will open, can it exceed 4500?

Jennifer Linden writes: My question is about Batman v Superman. With the huge success of the new Star Wars in regards to advanced ticket sales, how big should our expectations be when the Dark Knight takes on The Man Of Steel? Could the advance ticket sales eclipse those of the new Star Wars?

Bespin Raptor writes: Hey Collider Crew. I’m a big fan and watch most of your shows every day. My question is: at what point is a spoiler no longer a spoiler? If I were to say that Darth Vader is Luke’s father, no one would care. But if I were to mention the ending of a movie currently in theaters or just released on DVD/Blu-ray, many people would consider it to be too soon. So how long should someone wait before they start talking about all aspects of a movie and not being worried about spoiling it for people. Thanks, and keep up the great videos.

  1. Inside Out was alright, definitely unique and funny, but down at heart its a children's movie and it really didn't have anything mind blowingly special to it. So I'm shocked that John has it as is possibly best movie of the year.

  2. The one thing I'll say is that John Campea shouldn't be dismissive or mocking towards people who care about even what seem to him to be trivial spoilers. Things that TV spots and trailers give away aren't something you can just talk about freely, some people are deliberate about avoiding even slight spoilers and that's just because of my passion for movies and so I feel like John was wrong to mock such people.

    It is on people like me to avoid spoilers and so If you guys are doing a spoiler review I won't watch it and I won't be dumb, and really I think you guys are pretty good about being clear about what you are going to talk about upfront and not being more spoilery than you let on, my only objection was mocking people just because they cared more about even small movie details than you John. But otherwise you guys do good work all around even when it comes to spoilers.

  3. Every time these guys talk about antman Edgar Wright comes up like holy shit get over it

  4. It doesn't make any difference to me whether your live or not. I have to work everyday and my internet isn't solid enough to keep with live streams.

  5. Spoiler: Campea was kind of a dick at the end of the spoiler segment discussion. But you're still awesome John 🙂

  6. I think rewatchablilty is a huge part of what makes a movie good. Lots of movies that rely on big reveals or twists fail to have good rewatchablilty. Signs for example is stupid once you know the twist. Overall if a movie can be spoiled by finding out one piece of information then a film wasn't that great to begin with.

  7. Spectre was alright, I dont know what to say about it, its really strange. I mean I dont want to say its crap, its just everything traditional Bond, but if anything I guess its that it was too much of the familiar.
    They built the feeling up in the trailers that it was really going to be very "clever", Christoph's "Blofeld" was going to be very clever and menacing, but in the end I just thought, so what does he really want to do then?? Take over the world, mentally torture Bond?? Its like in the end he kind of didnt amount to anything much really, him or his organization.
    But overall it was good, it had all the traditional one-liners, action scenes, humor Spectre had all that, even Craig just feels even more like the traditional James Bond now, but perfectly balanced with his Icy cold style. Lea Seydou was a really good Bond girl too, shes just beautiful anyway but more human, down to earth kind of Bond girl, Monica Belluci was abit wasted though, afterward its like shes just forgotten about.

  8. If someone is contemplating paying $2500 for a ticket for The Force Awakens come down to FL we still have tickets for the opening weekend and they're in some theaters reserved….. still is gonna be cheaper with plane ticket and all… just saying…

  9. I still don't understand why STARWARS is this huge! especially with now the modern cinema and all the sci-fi movies that we have seen. Even the story line of STARWARS isn't that great.

  10. I think with Batman V Superman it could be on par with Star Wars in terms of total box office numbers but not ticket presales. Star Wars fans are crazier than Batman/Superman fans.

  11. BatmanVSuperman is going to be a bigger movie then Star Wars. Both movies will make more 1 Billion. But I think BVS is going to be bigger because of the hype of arguably the 2 biggest characters in fiction history.

  12. "Bad" movies I like Megaforce, Flash Gordon, Superman 3, Krull, Doctor Detroit, Night Shift, Looker, Battle beyond the stars to name a few

  13. I enjoyed the Last Witch Hunter.  I recommend you wear sunglasses, though.  There were a lot of sharp bright light scenes.  Heard the audience complaining about their eyes hurting.  LOL

  14. Christian nailed his argument on the spoilers!I've had it happen a few times, and even though a movie is 40-20 years old, there's just alot of catch-up to do for people like me in the younger generations, making it harder to have seen all those classics

  15. Have any Superman or Batman gets people into a fight over rather a character is lying to another character? I don't know, but Star Wars surely did.

  16. No way the other movie is going to make money. Why would people go see a movie when there are crowds, lines and the worst screens. I am staying away from the theaters the first two weeks.

    And do n't you dare buy a ticket to another movie and go to Star Wars. There will be fights.
