Random Factoid #285

9 05 2010

“Iron Man 2” missed the opening weekend record that “The Dark Knight” set by $25 million.  Phew.  Batman will “live to fight another day,” as Harvey Dent says.

But AMC MovieWatcher Network’s blog Script to Screen pointed something out about the summer opener that I really wished I knew on Friday: there was an extra scene after the credits!  And I even told the friend I went to that I suspected there might be a supplemental scene.  He hurried me out, telling me his friends had seen it at midnight and said there wasn’t anything.  But there was!

I’m the kind of person that gets up as soon as the credits roll unless there is some sort of scene going.  Unless I had heard that there would be an extra scene at the end of the credits, I would never stay through the credits.  It’s just too much time to spend if you don’t know.  And credits are getting pretty long nowadays – “The Lovely Bones” and its 15 minute credits, anyone?

Anyone out there willing to stick it out without certainty?  I applaud you if you do.

I always stay to the end of the credits! You never know what might be there and it’s always worht it.
Even if there isn’t a scene, the music is usually a great sweep of all the main themes in the score and for a muso like me that’s worth waiting for. And sometimes you get beautiful artwork like in the Return of the King credits.
I always feel kinda sorry for the legions of production crew who go unnoticed in big budget movies. So staying in my seat through the credits makes me feel a bit more like they get the recognition they deserve.
You should try it…
