Reality Check
Erica W.

Did it ever occur to any of you that maybe they're just using all these rumors to keep people talking about the movie?

I'm not saying that the rumors have no truth to them what so ever, but ... my Dad's worked in the movie industry for quite some time as a reporter and I wouldn't be at all surprised if the movie industry has spread stuff like this around just to keep people excited about the movie, therefore boosting ticket sells when the movies start coming out next Christmas.

So I wouldn't get too worked up about all this if I were you. No matter what you guys may be saying in the forums, I'd wager you'll wind up in the theater any way.
