With Solo and the Boba Fett film maybe Disney/Lucasfilm were planning to have a crossover film with the two.

It's not really ever spectacularly amazing or awful. Just a bunch of dankly lit CGI action stitched together for 2.5 hours. Anyone who didn't want to see it probably isn't going to be convinced by wom.

RT aud score still dropping 64%

WOM might not save it, sure it skewed by trolls, but shouldn't matter after a certain amount of votes

I think people give the keyboard warriors too much credit (which only emboldens them BTW). The general public who mostly piles in to fund these films are a key component. And the die-hard fans will be there no matter what, which pretty much eliminates anything a troll can do. So what's hurting the business is this saturation effect. It took Lucas 28 years to make six movies. Disney has made 4 in three years. That's too much. 

 

These things use to get rolled out with so much pomp and circumstance. You get the first BIG trailer. Then you would get the BIG announcement for merchandise. Fans had time to rebuild anticipation between movies.  All of that is passe' now.You barely get to catch you're breath before something else is rolling out. These days Disney is feeding the brand through a fire hose like it's a Netflix series. 

 

We just had a Star Wars movie this past Christmas which hit a sour note with a number of people, then the DVD came out less than two months ago. Now we have another one? I'm sorry but as much as these films can engage the public's interest, they didn't get there by being rammed down their throats. 

 

Rogue One was an interesting experiment, but in no way should it have green lit this new foray into endless spin-offs. This brand needs a rest and I think Solo is going to underscore that.

Nah it’s trolls.

 

Wasn’t the Want To See score at 39% some hours ago?

 

edit: yeah, the Aud Score for this is pretty much pointless. Star Wars fans continue to suck.

From Rth in the Oz thread. @DeeCee & @WrathOfHan Do the math. Extrapolate the domestic OW.

why would folks on rt suddenly start trolling. aud scores:

tfa 88%

ro 87%

tlj 46%

solo 63% and likely rotten over the weekend itself.

 

internet and trolls go hand in hand but most seem genuinely pissed about the direction of the franchise.

That's pretty bad.  Sub $5m OW.  Translates to USD50-70m for a normal 3 day weekend.

Actually that's probably to low.  Might be around AUD6-7m OW.  Normal 3 day USD65-85m

Depends on if they manage to automate account registration and voting. I.e. use bots.

 

They could also manage a lot manually if they are really dedicated to what they do.

I mean in terms of dying at the domestic box office compared to their predecessors. Although I think Solo will have real difficulty reaching even Justice League’s international total.

Happened to Black Panther. A ton of bots voted it with 2 star ratings and got it down to 70% on opening day.

 

Meanwhile the IMDb score is approaching 7/10.

The contrast in the reactions to Deadline's early report of $15M for Solo compared to their early prediction of $15M for Deadpool 2 is funny.

Could we be looking at a sub $500m total? 

This is literally sureal... No one could have thought that 1 year ago...

Sure, easy. Could have DOM and OS both under 250, perhaps. It does seem like WOM from people who’ve actually seen it is pretty fine, so I guess there is a bit of hope from legs, but the OS competition is really fierce with DP2 and JW2.
