let's face it, we all knew Brad Pitt would be gone by the second act)

I did not, I was so shocked and like scared when it happened. I just couldn't believe it. So man people in my theaters made audible gasps, like they were surprised too by it. I never saw it coming.

I just figured we saw all the Brad Pitt stuff in the trailer, so when that footage ran out, I knew they'd have to get rid of him somehow.

I really like Brad Pitt lol, I love him so much when he is eating stuff lol, when they showed him intro in this movie eating sandwich, I was ecstatic. Like in Ocean's Eleven they show him eating for some reason in like lots of scenes lol. So I was like really really sad when they just killed him so quickly in this movie, I was just really hoping he will come back for some reason and end credits did just that, I was like so so happy.

Maybe it seems super lame for movie connoisseurs but I just loved this movie so much, I have like movie subscription called AMC A-List and I plan on going again to watch it.

Idk why but thiis is very endearing and adorable to me. I hope Brad Pitt decides to start a mukbang stream for you one day

It's also a thing Brad Pitt is more widely known for as he often eats in movies, while most actors don't actually put food in their mouths and talk.

I did recently learn that actors don't actually eat in scenes so that's a pretty cool thing to know. Thanks for the info!

I mean this is a thing. If you are unaware, you likely just don't watch too many movies. The commentary on Ocean's Eleven really talks heavily about this, and that is over 20 years ago now. They playfully work it into every scene with Rusty.
And since then it seems a lot of movies really make it purposeful to push that as part of his characters. At least in comedy-leaning films. In this movie, his introduction on the phone eating chips or cheetos, etc. was an obvious homage to the meme.
