Transformers Roll Out....again.
Cars: 1 out of 5. Race, boring speeches, repeat. Mcqueen wins race at the end. zzzzzzzzzz. Great animation tho. Shame is wasted instead of using it for The Incredibles sequel that never happened.
Mama Mia really? Ha Ha the wonder of it all. While the studios were nervous about how WW was going to do the "Sure Bests" are all disappointments with Transformers being the next train wreck. And all that talk with 3D Max hype (extra $ prices) and its actually bringing less money than the previous sequels. Now that's ironic. Yep WW still has legs.
Well it's official. He got the gig to finish the job. But how could it get to this level with so much at stake. Deja Vu with Superman 2 with Director Donner getting fired and Lester hired. And to a degree that kind of work out.
Already they're writing this off at $65 for 5 days. Guess they didn't learn from last time. (see below).
Again overseas needs to rescue this. But with all the spinoffs planed won't that be overkill and will the audience be there for those. Again with all the other sequels the audience is looking somewhere else. "What was that? too busy binging on Orange New Black that you didn't notice?" lol.
Remember the last one when it opened July 4th weekend and the studio bragged it crossed the $100M only to make just $25 the next weekend losing 75% of it's box office gross. So now all these films need overseas for any chance of more sequels. As you can see from the past few months most open at No. 1 and die quickly. Like I said before the exceptions of WW, which still is strong with it's numbers, and so will Spidey who has minus competition. Dunkirk? You can see an old version on Youtube and you'll get an idea how it plays out.
Ok never mind the paychecks for first headliner. The second film is the big payoff. But what is her corner is she took one for the team while filming the big battle scene while a couple of monthspregant (CGI covered that up). The studio has to make up to her with bonus points along with a huge bump in pay. And it doesn't hurt that not only is doing great but other films are coming and going from the top spot faster than you can say Wonder Woman Sequel! So ..
Cars was no. 1. So what. That should have cleared $75. Again franchise fatigue. Same with Transformers. While WW will dance in the top five thru July 4th. Man it got legs, lol.
Hey look at Guardians 2, it just broke the top 60 world wide. Big disappointment since both Fast 8 and Beuaty Beast are both 10 & 11 of all time. Besides Minions we just got Spidey left.
$150M for promotional costs? For what? Everyone knows what a Mummy is, and we all know who Tom Cruise is. Wow is the studio out of touch. But the studio will not quit with Bride of Frankenstein still getting the greenlight which is beyond reasoning.
Talk about being nervous with the outcome. They couldn't figure this out at the beginning of production? Again aka Rogue One and DC pulling Justice League bit. But the big news here is that Ron Howard's name has been making it's rounds. Why not, he did Willow, fun fantasy. see IMDB.
Wow can someone get their shit together. And these are the overpaid suits making dumb decisions.
How hard is it to adapt previous material and translated to the big screen? Especially comic books. Their storyboards ready to come alive with sound added and CGI. But then again it takes the boys club at DC to screw that up. Well it did take a woman to get it right, didn't it.
Again with the friggin engineers? And David? And another Sequel? Is the studio so empty that they rather go ahead with this dead franchise than doing something original especially after the Box Office numbers were less than Prometheus? Well......yeah. Another studio in sad shape.
Hardcore fans knew this even before it was revealed in Kong Skull Island after credit. What an insult. Mothra, Rodan, King G, Duh! No he was going to fight Barney the Dinosaur. FU studio.
Who cares. Sure he's a great actor when he gets around to making them. Guess going to cable is not an option since he only does big screen films and not small screen. So let's see:
No superhero, big VFX, voice animation, dumb R comedies for the summer. Yep looks like he's out of job. He can stay home, make his shoes and polish his 3 Oscars which most actors dream about.
