 Looking forward to seeing what Whedon can bang out in 12 days. Release date? Or is this straight to vid?

Branagh's version is one of my favorite films, the kind of film you drag out every 6 months or so to see again just because it delights you.  Anybody who hasn't seen it should definitely look it up.  The cast is fantastic and everybody is terific in it especially Michael Keaton.  Even Keneau Reeves gives it his all.  He's not good, but you can tell he trying really hard and having fun with it.

I'd love to see what Whedon and half the cast of Angel can do with it.

I've wanted to see this since I saw the trailer.  The release date is today, yet a moviefone search only turns up two theaters in LA, one in San Francisco and one New York.  I know it's not going to be in loads of theaters, but I was hoping for more than four.  This is Joss F'ING Wheddon!  There had better damn well be more cities to follow.

 Highest rated opening  this weekend on Rotten Tomatoes (by far)...the audience liked it even more than the critics.  Thought it might be a good movie to see with the girlfriend...but alas it's no where to be found ....all the giant movieplex's in the area are still showing Star Trek 2, Iron Man 3, Hangover 3, Fast and Furious 6, and others of that ilk (movies for little boys of all ages).   I've given up trying to con my girlfriend into accompanying me to "genre" movies.  I think the last one I dragged her to was The Cabin in the Woods.  I find that I can no longer stand that look she gives me when we leave the theatre (the one that says "I can't believe a grown man likes that stupid sh*t").

 Agree totally with Kara that the Branaagh version is truly one of may all time favorites too. A customer at the video store i was working at when it came out said "There's a lot of joy in this movie." That's the best description I've ever heard; simply one of the happiest movies ever.
All of which leads me to this new version. I respect the hell  out of joss Wheedon and his ability with an ensemble cast is legendary, so I have high expectations for this. The only quibble I have without having seen it is I'd've cast Nathan Fillion as Benedick rather then Dogberry. He does a stuffed shirt with a heart of gold very well.  But looking forward to seeing this regardless.
