Many twitter users didn’t hesitate to give out a piece of their mind about what they actually thought of the latest revelation and casting.

The final trailer released just two days ago is trending on Youtube at #6 Worldwide and has managed to attract  5,624,119 views since then.

The film is set to release on November 16th.
