    It's opening on Jul 15, a Friday. It's a well known "secret" that movies that are expected to underperform open on fridays so that people won't be able to tell their friends at work not to go see them until sunday. Which is why Fembusters is opening against a bunch of duds so at least it has that going for it. Its only real competition is some movie starring Bryn Cranston that's sure to bring in some people via name recognition alone. The new Star Track and Ice Age movies drop on the 22nd at which point this movie will be dead in the water since these two will steal both their primary age demographics (excluding middle aged fans of the originals who probably don't want to see it either).
    Those are my predictions.

    They've used every trick in the book except make a good movie. Imagine if they put that much time, money, energy and thought into the movie they're now trying to save.

    I predict wild accusations of misogyny when this flops.

    no, money is exactly what their trying not to spend
    they don't expect it to make back their huge budget
    the projections keep going down
    they started their advertising late because they didn't think it wasn't worth paying for but when the projections kept going down they sprung for about 40 cheap tv spots hoping to cut their losses
    the entire effort right not is devoted to getting as many people as they can to see it and buy merch before word gets around it's bad and the money stops flowing in so that they can recover at least a fraction of the money they invested

    Nothing really but a few indie movies. Meaning they timed it here to have no 'real' competition.

    I'm starting to think you are one of the producers for this movie. You seem to know a 'bit too much'.

    Yeah, there's a lot that can be folded into one another, because there's a lot of redundancies. But because this situation is still going, I'd rather deal with it later when there's nothing of the story left to add.

    this part seems to be doing okay, but only on the merch that's targeted to the original films. several friends on my IRL fb are excited about the Ecto-Cooler and other retro junk, but nobody cares about the new shit and aren't really dissing or praising the new movie, just the throwback kitsch.

    Not really surprised... that would probably be the case even if this movie weren't shit. Ever been to a con?
    The merch that everyone goes for is gonna be one of 3 things.
    Retro, imported, or custom made. Like... they can sell the funko shit for $10 and still have money left over, but every con I've been to. The Dutch (Predator) action figures could vary in cost depending on whether or not it was still was in box. and would still sell like crazy. Hell.. my Hestia nendoroid costed $45, and was the last one at the con.
    People are gonna want shit they know either won't be in regular stores much longer, or just plain would be hard as fuck to find.
    Then you also have what I like to refer to as "The Star Wars" factor. Basically... parents want to raise their kids on the classic originals... not the new shit. If a parent shopping for star wars toys for their kid sees a Darth Vader action figure next to a Anakin skywalker one... they're gonna buy the fucking vader

    There's no sauce but the person making this claim was asked to deliver proof. IGN's current review is an unenthusiastic 'Okay' (x).

    Sony maybe planting good reviews (x).

    This is exactly what I hoped for with this movie. A bunch of Okay-Decent critic reviews to make channers squirm with rage that the movie isn't a critically-panned failure.

    I've started a Rotten Tomatos/Metacritic spreadsheet to see if the scores increase or decrease as time goes on... implying that the shills will give good reviews right away, while the proper reviews come after. Likewise with userscores to see if there is an initial "Honeymoon" period which gives way to reality as time goes on.
