At this point, cheerleading Disney’s box office success when they own as many properties as they do seems disingenuous.For what its worth and it may not be much, Xmen beat pets 2 last night. plus at the AMC I am at 12:30 PM, they say Xmen is doing better today than Pets 2. Good for Disney.
As a stockholder their boxoffice success is grear. I also realize that no company can keep this up forever. The worldwide boxoffice has a limit each year and eventually they will not be able to get 4 billion a year from just Marvel. That is why I want to make sure they keep Fox Searchlight going strong. Small movies with small but larger percentage profits are extremely important to the studio and the movie going public.At this point, cheerleading Disney’s box office success when they own as many properties as they do seems disingenuous.
Sad since as a Godzilla fan I thought Godzilla: KOTM was great! X-men had the excitement of a wet fart. it was so bad!What's sort of remarkable given a look at the schedule, these were pretty much our summer tentpoles from most studios and they've all completely flopped in various ways.
Lowest opening for X-men
Second lowest opening for Illuminations - just above Hop (I'm ignoring Sing's holiday release)
Godzilla has tanked
"Summer" hasn't even started yet and 4/6 majors are kaput.
Leaving it to Disney and Sony. The other majors' slates don't pick up again until August.
Sony: Men in Black, Spiderman.
Disney: Toy Story 4, Lion King
How so? This just makes it all that much easier as they forget this poorly developed universe ever existed.Feige has his work cut out for him. I say good luck with the MCU integration gonna need it after this abomination.
Oh, I get it, so movie audiences said to themselves "Hey, this is a Fox movie about a Marvel character, forget it, I'm staying home." Riiiiggght.
I think these two comments are hilarious because... they are exactly right even though they were stated as sarcasm.Who said it was a piece of garbage? The movie critics? Since when has that affected any movie the public really wanted to see? The fact that this film bombed on its first weekend says something. Maybe it's temporary Marvel superhero fatigue, or maybe it's long-term. Only time will tell.
