My sister talked with one of the guys while PBing for me and was told that they brought everything. If it didn't sell there, they would put it online. She left about 7:30 and said there was a pretty good sized stack of regulars left (can't really quantify that).
YUP. I was told EVERYTHING was brought to the screening. No surprise the variants sold out though. But have no idea if they had any regs left after opening sales to the public and then for the start of the 1030 show.

I like the minor touchups of GID around the limbs to preserve the outline of a man

Gonna remain hopeful with this one. Over 400 prints for regular still seems like a lot so hopefully once the hype subsides these will be a little easier to pick up. Stay positive peeps :)

Best guess for online sales is between 120 to 140. My friend bought one around 9:30 so they were still selling them but there wasn't a line anymore so I think my guess is a safe one.

Best of luck to those going for one.

Great print of the film tonight...wasn't digital 4k like the one from last year but still terrific. Got my poster right around 7 and rushed into the theater just in time to catch Weinberg's intro.

I was shocked but not shocked at the amount of people who brought family, etc to buy two prints a piece. Also saw some familiar flippers. It's all part of the game I guess.

Fantastic poster in person :drool:

IMO all sales at screenings and online should be limited to 1 per person.

Mondo is a hype-beast, that's for sure.

Agreed. I don't know why they didn't do it for this release.

Such a vastly popular piece. It just makes no sense.

For all that Mondo says they are against flippers, they just provided the best flipper situation by allowing 2 (1 of each) prints per ticket holder (with a unique credit card) as well as anyone off the street could walk up and pick one up after the ticket holder crowd got theirs. :roll:
