This may very well be the movie of the decade. I saw the trailer to this epic film which to me looks just as good as The Lord Of The Rings. * I was waiting for somebody to show some ballz and give us another blockbuster that could be one of the greatest action movies of all time. It looks like we found her.
What do you think. See link below.

The trailers look pretty silly. Also, when I first heard the name, I thought it was going to be about ER. I was disappointed.

The avengers looks even worse, though. You should probably prepare yourself.

I too was disappointed. The chick in the movie from was outrageously hot though, and the CGI was impressive. But it was 3 hours and dragged on and on...

I haven't seen it but I know it flopped at the box office, so I doubt that it's as good as you say it is.

It only did about 30 million which was not even close to what they were really expecting. The mark was set to hit 200 million. Epic fail.

I had no interest in this movie at all.. And I'm a huge sci-fi fan... All the ads and trailers for this movie just made it seem to me like it was being marketed for a younger crowd..

I feel bad. It was a great movie... I think if it was directed to a little bit more of an older crowd it would of definitely done well. I think a lot of people just saw the disney insignia and said "eh, no thanks".

The only reason it flopped was because Disney didn't advertise it enough. Nobody knew what it was, or what it was about. It's an awesome film, and needs to be recognized. People think, "Oh, it flopped, so it must suck." Do you realize how hard it is to make back a 250 million dollar movie when the people making it have no idea how to advertise a movie properly and spread the word? Pretty hard.

Tl;dr - Go see it. It's great.

It flopped because it came out before the actual Summer seaon box office smash date arrived. If this was released in May 2012, then things would have been different. And of course, some were told that this move sucked in advanced.
So they saved their money for the other hits such as Games and Wrath of Titans.

To be honest, the trailer for this movie made it look not very good, but then one of my friends saw it and said it was good. As a result I decided to give it a try and overall it was definitely better than the trailer made it appear. I found the fact some things were left wide open to be problematic though; I feel there wasn't really a good explanation given as to why the guys with medallions were trying to destroy planets.
