    I just switched my 11 am showing Friday to 9:30 am. If they add a 9:00 I will probably switch again. It's getting real now.

    EDIT: Yup, they added a 9 am. I'm in for that.

    Regal just opened a 4DX an hour down the road so now I’m thinking of checking this out there.

    Also Kevin Smith just saw the movie so watch out he tends to blurt stuff out on his platforms.

    "an immensely satisfying payoff" Those are the words I wanted to hear. I'll probably see it some time next week.

    Check out the slideshow nearly everyone in the MCU was at the premiere, whoa!

    Yes, critics leaving the premiere are allowed to tweet out their initial reactions to the movie. So they are Twitter reactions.

    I guess you missed my point. I was referring to the fact that gushing, positive Twitter "reactions" are frequently a thinly veiled marketing tool used by the studios, and more often than not don't reflect honest opinions of a film. They're like Yelp reviews - they need to be taken with a big grain of salt. Not saying that's necessarily the case with Endgame, because I'm sure it will be very good, but it has become industry standard practice.

    They are still useful, for example if Twitter reactions are luke warm there are definitely signs of trouble.

    Not sure if I believe this but right now people are saying that Endgame
    has no after-credit scenes, nothing mid-way or at the very end.

    But the review embargo lifts in an hour, so we will know then.

    Jeff's IMAX chart above would seem to indicate there's something.
    Credits begin at about 2:49, then the credit roll begins at 2:53. That would seem to imply some time in between for a short scene.

    This is immensely helpful to me. We have tickets for the Thursday 7 pm showing at our local AMC IMAX, but we’ve had conflicts arise and I’ve been worried they might not have a full slate of trailers due to the run time. We may be getting there right at 7 pm or a few minutes late (which I hate to do).

    I agree with you. The immediate Twitter reaction is almost always better than the latter critical consensus, because people are reacting while still on the high of seeing the movie at a major Hollywood premiere, or at a special advance screening.

    If the immediate Twitter reaction is enthusiastic, it doesn't necessarily mean the movie's going to be universally acclaimed. However, the immediate Twitter reaction isn't enthusiastic, things are probably only going to get worse from there.

    I really wish they'd maintained the embargo until at least Thursday. Having reviews hanging out there for the next couple days is going to make it all the harder to avoid spoilers.
