Well, if she's defeated, the movie ends and we don't get any answers.

I'm not so much worried about Homura being the star attraction (that much is obvious anyway), as I am that they're going to make Mami and/or Sayaka look bad in the process. I don't mind if Homura defeats them in battle (time-stop is a pretty hax ability after all), but I'm really worried that they're going to give Mami and/or Sayaka PIS in order to achieve that. Or make them look horribly unreasonable for going against Homura.

I hope there will be at least some ambiguity in whatever it is that's causing Mami & Sayaka vs. Homura. I hope that Mami and/or Sayaka aren't turned into borderline villains because Gen couldn't come up with an actual villain for this. I could totally see Mami and Sayaka being forced to play The Dark Knight Return's Superman to Homura's Batman (and I think DKR did great, lasting damage to how people perceive Superman).

Nah, they can just beat her and be like "the fuck's your problem?" and walk off while she sulks. It kind of looks like that might be how the fight with Mami ends. You know, kind of like how the Sayaka vs Kyoko fight was in the regular series.

To be fair, I felt DKR did a pretty bad number to Batman too. Didn't even feel like the real Batman anymore.

And then what? She's the MC in this movie. If she can't fix whatever is happening, no one else is going to do it.

Which one? I don't think they fight only once, and I'm pretty sure in at least one of those fight, Homura gets binded, and since Charlot appears in the latest PV, I bet Mami gets killed right there. I think the blood on Homura's cheek is from Mami!

Well, I don't see either one of Homura, Mami, or Sayaka as cold-blooded killers, so that helps. I think all three would be willing to kill under extreme circumstances (some of Sayaka's dialogue in the TV series made it clear she was prepared to kill Kyouko if necessary), but I think they'd rather avoid killing another human/Puella Magi if possible.

Plus, there's always the "Madoka cries for them to stop" option.

You could have Mami and/or Sayaka so pissed off with Homura that they're actually prepared to kill her, but Madoka's pleas for mercy sways them. And then Homura retreats, does what she has to do, probably wins any re-matches.

This is how the Homura vs Mami fight could end.. or the whole movie.

What makes you say that? I didn't see anything evil-looking about Sayaka in that trailer. Well, except for the head-tilt early on, but that clip was from the original TV series.

I think they mean the smile 7 seconds in. I feel like it'll come after the shield-stabbing.

Anyway, I think I might potentially have a theory on Nagisa's wish? I'm just assuming she's the reason Madoka and Sayaka are there...
Spoiler for just in case:
Little out of left field, but...

That smile didn't look particularly evil or villainous to me. It just looked like a simple smile to me. I mean, it's nothing compared to Sayaka doing a Professor Tomoe impersonation at the end of Episode 7.

Anyway, yeah, I think Nagisa's wish is probably key to all of this. Your theory probably comes close to capturing what's happening in the movie. Perhaps Nagisa's wish causes a bit of a paradox, and reality itself starts unraveling. Homura has to find a way to set things right, but Mami and Sayaka don't agree with her methods and/or doubt that Homura's plan will work.

I am tickled at Sayaka's popcorn flavor being "Salted". The flavor of the tears of magical girls, yes?

More than disagreeing with her methods, I think they would antagonize Homura simply because they don't have memories of how reality should be and don't realize what's happening. If that's the case, Homura must seem like a nutcase to them, talking about alternate worlds and fake realities.


Anyway, in the trailer Madoka tells Homura she can't do it alone (probably referring to getting things back to normal). I suppose that means Homura needs to stop trying to beat up the other girls and work with them instead. Poor Homura, with her lack of communication skills it's going to be pretty hard to convince the others to work with her.

Cheese-flavored popcorn? Interesting...I think.

That's actually a very, very common flavor for popcorn; even more so than caramel.

Cheese-flavored popcorn is probably my favorite type of popcorn-flavoring. On the other hand, Momoe is the only one of the six characters I haven't seen yet, and so she's the only one I have no particular attachment to yet. This would be a hard choice for me - Do I put my character preferences first, or my taste-buds?

Those probably go in the reverse order of what flavor I'd want as opposed to what character I'd want. Then again, chocolate popcorn's surprisingly decent, and I really do like Kyouko, so I'd probably go with her's! Though by character-wanted order:

Homura or Madoka - do not want either flavor at all
Kyouko - yes. just yes.
Mami - don't like caramel
Sayaka or Nagisa - both flavors sound decent, but I'd want the stickers of them the least, especially because Nagisa's stuff just looks like the character design sheet, so it's boring.

As for those drinks.. all please. Especially Walpurgis. I honestly hope the US showings get these things, especially the drinks and signboards!
