    I know they happened last night and happening tonight but I haven't seen any reactions so far, especially on Twitter.

    Would it be helpful if people can find and post press reactions from social media on here?

    Were there US screenings already? And does the embargo cover all screenings or can they be specified?

    I personally have no idea. They're might be. All I know is that there was a UK press screening last night and one tonight after a director & cast Q&A.

    I think the embargo for both US/UK is either Sunday or Tuesday.

    EDIT: Just spoke to someone I know on Twitter who has connections to the film press, both UK reactions and reviews are embargoed until close to release.

    Embargos just stop them from posting reviews, but most of them tweet their initial reactions to films right after the movie ends, so it is odd not to see anything on Twitter.

    I know critics in the U.S are going to watch it on Monday so maybe that's the day when they lift the embargo or perhaps on Sunday.

    For the previous movies, you seen many reviews right after the premiere, even though most were not good. The fact that the movie opens in 4 days and we've seen nothing - no reaction, no review from anyone is very concerning. I have a feeling this movie is going to get roasted bad.

    I know in the gaming industry, if a review is only coming out a day before or the day of, that usually doesn't mean good things.

    Is this a legitimate reviewer or a whiny bitch troll I'm happy to block when I find him on Twitter?

    EDIT: That's him blocked by me.

    Based on those tracking numbers:

    "Paramount’s upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight isn’t expected to do the domestic box office any favors with the series lowest opening yet of $70M over five days."

    ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Hoping To Catch Opening In The $100M Vicinity

    I wouldn't be surprised if the embargo doesn't lift until a week after this releases....SMH.
