    Because I believe no one cares, I'm not sure that if they did it, they'd bother hiding

    "Hey, no one look at all these people who aren't there" isn't exactly the Watergate scandal

    I heard that this film needs $750M to break even. If true, that's insane:avalon

    You have returned?

    BTW Captain marvel blows. Dinsey kept purchasing their own tickets for marketing but now the movie fell flat on monday on its face. how ridiculous.

    I wouldnt be surprised tbh,they are already doing it with the "send girls to see captain dyke"
    would it make any difference?

    I saw the claim on Deadline Hollywood. Could be a typo, but I'd believe it if it's confirmed :meh

    "I wouldn't be surprised blah blah blah" must be just a fancier way of saying "I'm talking out my ass"

    To correct a bit, article claims it will break even after passing 750M+ next weekend implying it needs between around 550-750M to breakeven. Unless, the article has typo, that's still massive

    Why can't we say the same thing about WB's Aquaman to save its faltering DCEU series though?

    The only retards that would believe Disney buying out theaters would be Suigetsu and DDJ.

    Aquaman never went into desperate damage control, however it lucked out simply because there was nothing else that was interesting enough to watch when it first released. It had like an entire month to show itself with no competition at all and during holidays!

    Aquaman itself was desperate damage control after the falling out with Snyder and Affleck and repeated disappointments both financial and critical :dank Captain Marvel is not running on a holiday season but it also lacks serious competition and is basically an overglorified promotional trailer for Avengers Endgame.

    It wouldn't be good to show your share holders that you have a crack in your almost perfect movie universe slate. So I can totally see them doing that.

    That's not what people were saying back then. They said Mary Poppins and shit would stomp Aquaman.

    Aquaman is the only good DC film.

    Man of Steel is a love it or hate it film, I didn't like it. Though I can understand why some love Man of Steel. In fact, in the middle of the film I just shouted at the screen without thinking, "What is this Bullshit?" Luckily I did this after Man of Steel came to dvd.

    man of steel edges out aquaman. they're both mediocre as fuck but MoS had better action scenes.

    Wonder woman is DCEU's only decent movie so far.

    Solo also already cost Disney an estimated 500-600 million minimum with the constant delays, reshoots, change in directors and writers, and failed advertising/marketing campaign. Any more money spent on it was a forecasted truth of throwing money into trash.

    Alita's people should have spent the $5 million they wasted on a superbowl ad to inflate the opening weekend and give themselves a bit more buzz.

    They should have reduced Alita's eye size instead of making her cross into the Uncanny Valley.

    It looks like a creepy doll.

    Disney bought its own tickets using charities to do so, thats a tax write off of about four hundred mil, that they are also going to get back.

    It becomes a lot less crazy when you stop looking at it like Disney blew nearly half a billion in the name of social justice and more rhat they exploited a bunch of entitled leftist creeps to commit a legal form of tax evasion.

    And yes there is plenty of proof this happened as well as the Mouse violating the Sherman act in how it treated Alita.

    Nobody who thinks aquaman is a good movie can talk shit about alita. Willam dafoe with that tight topknot is even worse than alita's eyes. And why are we pretending like man of steel and aquaman are close in quality if you squint.


    01:43 :kobeha:kobeha

    I had fun with aquaman because there's something going wrong in basically every scene and there are always tons of bright colors and funny costumes and hairstyles and hot people, but that does not mean it's a good movie you guys.

    It is, still I think the MCU its gonna be over after endgame because who the fuck is gonna carry it? IMO I think they will introduce the x-men and fantastic 4 after the whole thanos shenanigans. I mean they are also bringing in Wesley Snipes to retun as blade.
    But seriously captain marvel its a complete embarrasment and all the feminazi's and disney are in huge damage control. The movie had a world wide release, that crap is not gonna make more moneys, because even if it did over 400 you gotta take in account the theater cuts from other countries are bigger and stuff.
