    Sounds like an interesting film, especially with J.J. Abrams helming the project but @Sam Posten , what are you doing at a commercial theater when you have "theater Nirvana" at home??? :)

    Do you go to AMC a lot? I know EXACTLY who "Popcorn Guy" is - he's the spaz during the AMC promo who over-reacts to a scary scene and jerks popcorn all over the place.

    He's at 0:37:

    There are only a few AMC theaters here, that must be the reason.

    I'm gonna see at least one - and maybe 2 - movies at AMC this weekend. I'll see if Popcorn Guy survives in my area! :D

    I guess because I saw Saturday's movie via Dolby Cinema, they didn't run the usual AMC bumper, so no sign of Popcorn Guy at all.

    Sunday's movie was at a "regular" screen, and they ran the bumper with Non-Spilling Popcorn Guy.

    Tragic, sad day for all of us! :(
