Talk about overly hyped.  I'm travelling up in Cleveland today - apparently
there's only one theatre showing the movie (per another person in line)
[the theatre is next to the hotel...].  The 7:10PM showing almost sold out,
the 7:40 show was 1/2 empty, and there was nobody in line for the 10:30
showing at 10:00 when the 7:40 got out.  Those people waiting a month for
tickets wasted a month :-)

(Walked up at 6:00 to get the tickets for 7:40)..
Good movie, though.
