They're actually doing it all over the country. I signed up on the Disney website and got my tickets today. It's Sunday at the El Capitan.
March 15, 2007, 8:18 a.m. CST
Still waiting on confirmation, but with a little luck, my ass will be in a seat in NYC this Sunday. BTW, what's the rating on this movie? I hope it's an ARRRRRRRRRRR!!!
March 15, 2007, 11:25 a.m. CST
I hope they still have tickets! (I should have figured the El Capitan would have something, but all I've seen lately is about Meet the Robinsons)

Seriously, if you were showing the actual film that's one thing, but seriously, who gives a shit about a trailer? I'll catch it online an hour later when some nerd posts it. Seems like a whole lot about nothing.
March 15, 2007, 11:32 a.m. CST
You know Harry. This will wrap up with something special in the way of surprises at the end.
March 15, 2007, 11:34 a.m. CST
If you show up to the event, expect a mass car jacking. Word to the wise, ride a bike.
March 15, 2007, 3:51 p.m. CST
I will not be back from being out of town.
March 15, 2007, 4:39 p.m. CST
Hopefully, all the tools that are here for SXSW will be gone by then. Love the Pirates movies, love the Alamo, and this event sounds like a blast! Hope I get on the list to go.
March 15, 2007, 10:32 p.m. CST
I can wait for quicktime which will be on Apple few hours after you guys see it.
March 15, 2007, 10:41 p.m. CST
uhhh....I'm sure you guys are very excited about this event, but don't you think you could have found a better place to post this than the main page of your, generally informative site, you know for those who visit the site, yet strangely don't live in Texas?

Last summer at comic con.I dont know why people are making a big deal out the trailer and holding press events/parties etc.It does look good but its NOT gonna be the greatest movie ever.

Did you get a confirmation email or anything back after you sent in your info? Haven't heard anything back yet. Oh, and to all you "A party for a trailer?" assholes, kill yourselves. Especially all you Brits. God forbid you should stop sucking off your XBox for eight minutes and go outside.

Exactly how is that going to work? Do we just give our names or what? And is there going to be a confirmation email? (I doubt it since there isn't already one at this point.) I just want to make sure that my group gets in.
March 17, 2007, 1:47 p.m. CST
There is no confirmation email. If your name is on the list, you got in. You will need to have a picture ID to show when you check in at the theater.
March 17, 2007, 2:04 p.m. CST
But I didn't mean for the one in Austin. I'm trying to get into the one in NYC.

...in South Jersey. Saw an ad for it in the Saturday newspaper. Sent an email, and forgot about it. My wife gets home, checks the email, and there's one from someone we don't know. Good thing she opened it, 'cause it didn't have a "This is for the Pirates event" in the subject line. I've never been to something like this before. At the very least, I'll get to see Curse of the Black Pearl with a bunch of lucky Pirates fans. And yes, you need a photo ID that matches the info you sent in the email in order to get in...unless you pull a Fletch on 'em.

Photo ID? I'll have mine but one of my party's a minor and doesn't have a photo ID and the other one fell through so I have a replacement. I wonder if I could get one of the names changed if I email 'em. What do you guys think?
March 18, 2007, 8:30 a.m. CST
by Howard the Duck
...the Photo ID is probably only for the person who initially sent the email to try and win tickets. The form you need to print out says that it is good for two persons, but doesn't say anything about the second person needing an ID. Good luck to ya!

March 19, 2007, 7:15 a.m. CST
Was it better than staying home and sucking off your XBox, or what?

...during the credits of Curse of the Black Pearl. During which, everyone was talking amongst themselves, semi-loudly. That is, until the very end of the credits, when Captain Barbossa's monkey named Jack shows up near the cursed Aztec gold, takes a coin, and screeches at the camera. Honestly, you'd think that a theatre full of Pirates fans would've known about this by now. After the monkey, everyone was remarking how they never saw that part before. Priceless. And the trailer for At World's End was shown twice, right after the movie. Looks great, and I cannot wait to see the film. And it was cool to see filmed intros by Orlando Bloom, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Geoffrey Rush, made specially for the event. I was glad I did it.

As I watched the first POTC I realized that I didn't think it was that great of a movie... it was fun and surprising the first time around (especially with no buzz or hype), but it doesn't really stand up as a huge and hyped blockbuster. The trailer was pretty cool (although it was really annoyed when we had to wait about ten minutes after the movie was over because someone had loaded it incorrectly) and it definitely promises way more mayhem than the first two. I'm looking forward to it. Overall, though, it probably wasn't worth four hours of my time just to see a trailer.

And this includes 21 JumpStreet. How the hell do people watch someone as talented as Depp reduce himself to a quirky and unfunny character of a clown Pirate. Not to mention, a movie based on a fucking Disney ride. The IQ of humanity is truly dwindling. Let us hope that this is the last Pirates movie, so that this man can move on to something worthy of his talents. You know this to be true.

Fuck off, you pretentious dick. If your room in Mommy's house has a window, throw yourself out of it. No one will miss you in high school tomorrow.
