When the embargos run up until the wide release date, it's gonna be a sps movie. This is different

If it were anyone but Spielberg, I would be worried.

This may be a rare case where the movie is actually better than the book. I liked the book just fine, but most of the key and gate challenges simply don't translate well into the screen.

it depends on when the embargo is lifted. if it's lifted shortly before the movie release, then yeah, it's a bad sign because the studio is not confident of the movie quality and don't want negative word to spread. in this case, it's being lifted nearly 3 weeks before the general release.

it should have been a one season netflix series

the 80's geek stuff video game trivia could be fully developed and one season would keep it from getting stale

If they're releasing in March, it's shit.

Also, VFX in trailer looks good, but not tier 1. Implies they didn't spend the extra money to polish up cause it's not great.

Loved the book though.

Nah, that used to be the case, but there are so many big releases now that they have to spread them out.

January and February are usually the months for terrible movies

FWIW, The Matrix came out at the very end of March

The initial release date was December 2017, but they didn't want to compete with "Last Jedi" (a SPS movie). In February you had "Black Panther" and in April you have "Avengers." So March was the best time for the release.

The book was highly entertaining; I had a hard time putting it down. I think the overall concept and the world is super original and interesting.

My main beef is that the dialogue was a bit too superficial, as Cline could have done a much better job exploring the characters in greater depth.
