Take this with a grain of salt, but earlier today, Collider posted a very interesting story.
This Thursday, Warner Bros. is testing Zack Snyder's Watchmen in Portland. They're trying to get a blind audience, so no one would know what they're seeing. Well, that is... until now.
Here's what I know, the movie is scheduled to show at the Regal Lloyd Center 10 Theater in Portland at 7pm.
While all the test screenings I've been to use passes to get in, supposedly the screening has no passes and they'll just be recruiting people at the theater that night. So if you decide to go, it's probably a good idea to play dumb.
First off, I want fucking in.
Second, my contact who does PR for Warner Bros. mysteriously hasn't returned my inquisitive email about this particular subject, so your guess is as good as mine as to whether the Collider story is legit or not. (And even if it is legit, it's not like the studio would tell a member of the press about it--especially if they're looking for a blind audience.)
But all that aside: If you're into possibly seeing Watchmen a few months early (and who the fuck isn't, I ask), it can't hurt to show up at Lloyd Cinemas tomorrow evening to scope out the situation.
Thanks to Nex for the heads up.
