Exactly. Once they decide to bump it from the spring, they'd be crazy to release it in summer with all the big budget movies so the next best time is October.
Someone visiting another country got to see a longer version, which had about 20 more minutes of getting to know the people at the outpost. But for the English-speaking world all of that was deleted.Kevin M said:Well I finally watched this and I see that I was correct about many of my concerns but the two things (sic) that made this not work for me never crossed my mind beforehand as I thought the filmmakers, being "such fans of the Carpenter version", would have infused this film with them....character development (or at least well defined characters) and suspense building. You BUILD characters to care about or at the vary least know. You BUILD towards the discovery of the spaceship. You BUILD towards the reveal of the monster. You let the paranoia BUILLLLLLLD!!! None of this, just blank motivation-less semi-characters rushing towards the "money shots" with little to no foreplay.....doesn't work too well in sex (for half the crowd anyway ) and doesn't work too well in so-called "suspense/thrillers". Take your time - better payoff. None of that here.
