God bless the internet! Some crazy, enthusiastic film geeks just can’t contain their excitement a moment longer and are therefore somehow reviewing movies that haven’t been released yet, aren’t even in production and are still in the writing stage. Like Shazam 2. Even though the movie hasn’t even made a single second of footage, reviews for the movie are already appearing on Letterboxd. Geeks eh? Or is that nerds? We get so confused!
Rather than fight it, the movie’s director David F. Sandberg has decided to own it. He’s going to use those review quotes already!
We haven't shot Shazam 2 yet but there are already reviews up on Letterboxd. I'm pretty sure that means we're allowed to start using review quotes for marketing. pic.twitter.com/q7rj528CDR
