It doesn't have AQM's many money shots, but marketing seems to get the gist across as with other recent jovial street-level cbm's. 

 

EoT was still at the end of the day an obscure Tom Cruise action/scifi thing. 

Bumblebee was a more expensive Herbie Fully Loaded.

Spider-verse was another too weird & animated Lord & Miller project.

 

Shazam's trailers are better than AQM's trailers.

Seems almost certain that this will get over 80 on rotten tomatoes. If the word of mouth is equally good this movie can easily overperform.

Imagine if DC ends up releasing the better Captain Marvel movie?? :Venom:

I don't care about that rivalry stuff. I just want Shazam to be a good movie and in turn succeed at the box office.

No such thing as "real critics" anymore.   We can point to "Top Critics" on RT I suppose and you'll find all the well know publications etc. but do most people pay attention to it?  Do most people pay attention to anything other than the overall RT score?   Hell, do most people even pay attention to RT? 

 

I'd say enough people do pay attention to RT overall to a point where studios feel it's useful to use in marketing but I don't know.  If we agree that it's at least somewhat important it still doesn't matter how the score about..    Shazam could do 83% on RT and I believe most people won't investigate to see where and how the number came about..

I think that regular people only care about the overall score and don't give a shit about Metacritic either. Jumanji had a 58/100 score on Metacritic and had great word of mouth. Fanboys love Metacritic and care about the top critic score on RT but that's about it.

Credit where it's due, WB seems to be aware of how spectacularly it fucked things up and is now making amends. I know nothing whatsoever about this character but the premise and reactions have me intrigued.

The trailer will be play to millions upon millions of people around the globe this weekend so the time of the sm embargo lifting is great as many people will notice this.Maybe we are looking to a 200M grosser here which is fantastic given the 80m budget.

It’s Goffe. He doesn’t like anything. That’s the only reason for his prediction. 

Exactly. This is why i don’t take his reviews for each movies seriously...like even at all.

 

He’s ”Mr. Blockbuster-hater”, even if the said blockbuster hits over $1B WW.

 

But i think another problem is that he has no good sense of what he wants to see in the movies. It’s always ”This movie sucks because it made so much money”.

 

I’ve seen his reviews be constantly negative every time a new big movie comes out: Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, DP2, JW2, The latest Star Wars-movies & Pixar sequels, Zootopia, Aquaman, and he keeps giving the same negative thoughts over and over, like his reviews are exactly autopilot.

This is gonna absolutely tank overseas. I can easily see under 150m OS.

Oh, and what happens if it overperforms...will you be angrier that we didn’t listen to you if we gave the movie our money?

 

Look, no offense...but i know you’re gonna hate this movie anyway...like almost every other new big movie you want to see underperform. I know...because i can feel it and smell it a mile away. 🙄

 

If you keep this up...you’ll be the next ”BK007”. Not in a good way. And i’m not even joking...i’m serious. You want to see every new blockbuster fail...because it looks like they have nothing good to offer you...or you’ll assume anyway they won’t have anything good anyway to offer you. 🤦🏻‍♀️

There was never any doubt this was going to be anything other than a big fun movie, just reading Sandbergs tweets is enough to tell me what I would be getting.

He's the co-show-runner for Swamp Thing on DCU, which is being exec-produced by James Wan

I'm just so happy and relieved that they put weight on the family stuff and it's not just a kid becoming an adult superhero.Also I am very happy that it seems that they haven't gave away nothing with the trailers.Most times these movies give away all the funny scenes and even the twists with the trailers.But not this one.Good job WB.

WB seems to be good at that.

Wonder Woman's trailers were perfect at whetting audiences' appetites without showing too much of the film.

I thought for sure Andy Muschietti would be locked into doing a DC flick after the mega success of IT but nope.

There is a distinct lack of controversy on this movie.

 

Someone should complain about the lack of diversity or female rep or something, just to spice things up.
