In this article, site-founders Alex Lynch and Charles Gerian are joined by hosts of the Cut-To Podcast Caleb Hamilton and Connor Behrens to discuss the IMAX event of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Caleb Hamilton visited the DC event and Connor in Texas whilst Charles went to Moore, Oklahoma and Alex in Toronto, Canada. Please send us your Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX experience pictures and stores. We’re also looking to feature fan art!
How far did you travel for the Batman v Superman IMAX Event? Was it worth it?
Connor: I traveled 40 mins, but I had stay at my school basically all day but yes, totally worth it. Posters, extra footage, AND SEEING THE FILM A WEEK EARLY.
Charles: I traveled an hour and a half, roughly, got slowed to a crawl in Oklahoma City rush hour traffic, it was terrifying, but waiting in line and seeing how excited all these people were, and WB’s excellent presentation was WELL worth it. Plus the scene and posters were to die for.
Caleb: I traveled 45 minutes, and it was definitely worth it! Had quality time with a friend I haven’t seen in months. Got to see the trailer for like the 200th time, in glorious IMAX.
Alex: Traveled by bus for 30 mins to train station and took a 60 minute trip from there to Union in Toronto and took another 10 minutes on the Subway.
Connor: I’m so glad they were nice and didn’t make us chose which poster to take!
Charles: I was so worried about that.
What did you take away from seeing it in IMAX, and *THAT* scene?
Connor: I made friends with 5 people. We all talked about Man of Steel and how it doesn’t deserve the mixed reaction it got. This 45 year old lady was like, “I love Zack. I saw Man of Steel 20 times in theaters.”
Caleb: I took away that I will be seeing this in a real IMAX theater, not one refit for IMAX DMR. I want to FEEL these two gods go at it with each other
Alex: I took away that there are people as passionate for Batman v Superman, Zack Snyder and DC as much as me and they were all energetic about it. We talked for over 2 hours in line and in the theatre and even after the showing. The IMAX looked amazing especially for the special scene.
Caleb: I did not have any conversations with people in line, except my friend. I spent most of the time trying to get a cell signal. The whole movie theater is under a bridge and is a dead zone
Charles: I noticed for the first time that there are names on the wall around the Superman statue.
How did the crowd react to the full, extended version of the IMAX trailer?
Charles: Our very small crowd whooped and cheered and clapped. Also some lines at the beginning, background noise like “ALIEN!” and “they sent a warrior” it sounded like, I’d also never picked up on.
Caleb: Theater was quiet until the extra footage – some were there seeing this for the very first time, like my friend. They cheered loudly and everyone clapped. Really energetic crowd!
Alex: Crowd went batshit crazy when the WB Rep got on the mic to hype everyone on, then we made noise during the WB logo but were silent until Batfleck appeared when people started going crazy, and then the whole f*cking theatre (which was only 3/4 full) flipped the crap out over the clashing scene. The reaction wasn’t the same the second time around though, just a bit quieter.
Connor: My theater went apeshit, after the second showing half of the crowd stood up and clapped.
Alright, so Charles talked to the Warner Bros representative in Moore, Oklahoma about our website The Bible of Zack Snyder and he told the representative about our site and how it’s currently the only Zack Snyder fansite out there to which the representative replied “Well, hey you want some more posters? That’d be a great incentive to let people know about you and build your site- besides, im sure he would love it”.
