Basic teenage girls* listening to shit - you give them shit.

 

You can't catch 'em with Guns&Roses, so no need to try.

 

* the make it or break it demo for any would-be 4Quad blockbuster

Yeah thats a can of worms for later

 

Fuck the Manga; if it's indeed not suitable enough, Jim will rewrite it or write a new Alita story. Let's hope at least the first movie has a flawless story. These Japanese can be really weird sometimes.

Yes.

 

I'm hoping I can see it in IMAX 3D if possible but honestly, I wouldn't mind trying D-Box either. Watching the motorball sequence will probably feel like riding a roller coaster.

 

I saw Skull Island and Last Jedi in D-Box; Those were cool, but this is going to fit so much better!

I just watched the Mirror Punch scene. Actually the Junkie XL's cue at 0:17 is the basis of Dua Lipa's song verse and pre-chorus. It's the same chord progression in the same key so I think there's still a sinergy between the score and the song however flimsy and tenuous it sounds because of the modern pop/trap arrangements.

I'm estimating this vid will be on around 20-30m by 2 weeks, much bigger than any of the trailers.

 

When the song hits the charts whenever it does, the viewcount will rise much further.

 

Good exposure!

Teenage girls have been responsible for the production of the worst artists, music and songs in History.

Also books and movies. There are thousands of BIG examples. (Twilight, Hunger Games and its clones, 50 Shades of Grey and so on.)

 

The Shay is wise and just though, so he also hates basic MALE stuff like:

cars, crime, wars, sports & games & videogames - and the movies (F&F, American war & gangster movies, Expendables and so on) that come out of it.

This thing started presales in Chile. Is somewhat rare for any movie to have pre-sales here, let alone 3 weeks before (I think just IW and Broly did like 1 month of presales). Is all for premium screens and sub-titled showings, very very weird strategy. Don't know if the same will happen in other OS countries.

 

 

I checked like 15 showtimes and it hasn't sold a single ticket yet.

If this doesn't end up breaking out then we aren't going to have a big box office hit until Captain Marvel in March.

Can we keep this thread to Alita bashing, not GnR bashing. No need to bring that out of nowhere. Great band. Sorry that popular things are popular.

No, no, I was making a comparison with the Lipa thing.

I hate music snobs.

it's super funny that the futurist is the music version of those "film bros/snobs/whatever" he's always complaining about.
