  1. Ridicule from audiences? Nobody even knew what the hell it was at the time. It was a WOM hit after release, not something people were talking about beforehand. The negativity surrounding Jack Sparrow was with Disney's idiotic studio executives.
  2. BOM says 178 for Apocalypse. It says "N/A" for Dark Phoenix, which is the one I'm asking about. Wikipedia says $265 million for Dark Phoenix. https://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=foxmarvel18b.htm
  3. Finally saw Apocalypse this evening. I can see why it received a mixed reaction from audiences a few years ago. Is the budget really $265 million on this new movie? Seems very high considering the box office last time.
  4. The sort of blank expression on the face of Jafar/Aladdin is not a great sign, but it's a small amount of footage and we'll have to see how the rest of it turns out.
  5. I would guess they are spending big money on Aladdin. I think the bigger issue is that they got the wrong director, which leads to poor casting. You don't need a mega budget to find an actor around 50 years old with a strong voice to play Jafar. Instead they get a dude with a weak voice who looks similar age to Aladdin.
  6. I would say Lion King and BATB are equal with Aladdin in the "obvious cash grab" category.
  7. And they have it in the Memorial Day slot which is now more of a "dud" spot than a mega event spot like it was 20 years ago. Pretty crazy how much that has changed in the last 10 years or so.
  8. What if the whole thing is a disaster? Maybe they should just hide the rest of the footage until the movie hits theaters, lol. Lost in this mess with the Smith Genie is they seem to have butchered the casting of Jafar. Too young with a very weak voice. I honestly didn't even realize it was him in the footage until I saw people complaining about it, lol
  9. At least it looks better than Aladdin, lol
  10. Why would they do that? They are in the business of franchise movies at this point. Acquired Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, X-Men, & Avatar for that purpose.
