Doesn't it seem like poor planning to pit a superman against a pirate while throwing in Sandler and Black to boot?

Opening on a Wednesday to eliminate the competition in small markets seems desperate to me. What do you think?

I sure hope that is not the reason! Has anyone had a chance to see a screening?

I've read some not-so-good things about Superman.
http://www.joblo.com/index.php?id=11668

Bryan Singer's SUPERMAN RETURNS was screened to a bunch of 'industry folk' in L.A. last night and from what I've heard from most of my contacts who saw the flick so far...it's "...good, but not great." Several people talked about how Lex Luthor's character simply didn't work in the film, especially his "big plan" (lame, apparently), but that Brandon Routh and Kate Bosworth were great and that the directing was well done. "Singer's an amazing film-maker. But I think his take is a little too out of touch for today's audiences (especially the young/urban crowd). Ultimately it's too much of a chick flick with not enough action and a weak villain." For those who don't know this, the film runs 153 minutes and is supposed to follow the 2nd SUPERMAN movie in continuity, as Supes returns to Earth and finds Lois Lane with child, etc... This news kinda sucks since I was hoping SUPERMAN RETURNS would be the great superhero movie of the summer, especially since I think X-MEN 3 wasn't "all that", but alas, I guess there's no way to be 100% sure until I see the film myself (opens June 28th), but word on the street is not great so far, so my expectations have already been lowered. Let's hope that Singer can pull something cool out of his hat anyway.
"What a crazy business"

Well, unofficially over at Rottentomatoes.com, the movie has 100% positive early on. Sounds pretty positive, but like you said, I haven't seen it myself yet. I'm guessing the box office will be solid.
