I have been really excited to see the new one... and this just killed it for me. I hadn't realized they would only tell me part of the story and then leave me hanging. Now I'll wait to see what happens. IF they make the second, I'll watch them both... maybe... if it doesn't get panned. I don't think Hollywood understands their audience. Telling me you will only finish a story if it sells well through the first half is a big middle finger aimed right at me. Advertising a movie 6 months before I can see it is just a waste of time that makes me want to wait until it comes out on video in 9 months instead of seeing it in a theater in 6.
