It was foretold. Not only will this be the single worst movie of all time, it will force cinema as a medium out of existence.
When humanity has nuked itself back to the stoneage and you tell a man in ragged fur banging two rocks together trying to re-invent fire about this movie, the last 15 IQ of this man will deplete and leave him a mindless husk.
This movie was going to bomb from the moment they cast Elba and told the legitimate fans of the book that had a problem with it not being faithful to the source material to fuck off and dismissed them all as racist.
Aunts like minion type things. I have 11 aunts and 6 great aunts and every one of them likes minion and other similar things. I can nowadays pretty clearly predict what their next fad is, and why.
wtf does this have to do with feminism?
>I quit silicon valley for this
>The average rating for top critics it's 1.1/10
It wont. With a small budget of 70 million, little competition, and two marginally big stars in Idris and Mcconaghey it should easily be able to make the 200 million or so needed to break even.
Add on the fact that Sony has plans for future films and a tv series and you've got a safe bet.
What's astonishing isn't that Sony made a bad movie, or that it is blatantly cashing in on fads, or that it is again wrapping a crassly commercial product in the flag of social progressivism. Every major studio does those things to some extent.
What's astonishing is that the people running Sony thought this was a more worthwhile project than Popeye.

>Shall we ruin a beloved, iconic character Mr Chairman?

Atomic Blonde is literally just John Wick with a vagina and an even worse story. The choreography isn't even close to good as Wick's either and it desperately tries to be cool to the point of being obnoxious.
ok just admit it now 90's kids if this movie is on TBS or whereever you are gonna atleast watch 30 minutes of it or untill it goes on commercial break.
also my 90s self would have given it atleast a 65%
>“They want to see how the “Emoji Movie” movie does because they think they have a franchise and it might help them get a better price,” said a source, the film, which features a poop emoji, comes out on August 4.
A franchise of emoji movies?
It'll be a "huge flop" officially on paper for everyone except the people hefting around the massive money bags.
Friendly reminder, these projects were canceled for this.
>Dobson because there will inevitably be a scene catering to his fetishes
>RT approved critic
Most Youtube critics are not Rotten Tomatoes approved, the only one is Chris Stuckmann if I recall correctly.
Why not? They've yet to make a god awful animated movie yet. Cloudy 1 and the Transylvania movies are solid, Open Season, Smurfs Lost Village and Arthur Chrsitmas are fine. This would be their first terrible animated movie. Id still trust them with Popeye.
That number is always inflated, 62% is about as low as I've ever seen it.
Most of the people who go to a movie's RT page before it even has reviews do so because they want to see it. And I imagine most who don't want to see it don't bother to hit the "not interested" button
>You know, in the first set of emojis, a girl could be a princess or a nurse. That's why I want to go to the cloud, where you can be anything!
>That was my idea! Why are men always taking credit for women's ideas?
To be fair from a purely economically point of view I imagine a Popeye movie wouldn't had made much money either even if it was good, and the "product placement" potential is lower than a move about apps, there isn't that much nostalgia about the character, the same thing happened with the Tin Tin and Charlie Brown movies that sadly didn't bank much money nor had much product placement and that is what Sony is looking for,
Though I wonder if Sony still has the rights to the movie, King Feature Syndicate could work with a different studio like Fox's Blue Sky that did a good job with the Charlie Brown movie.
POST YFW THIS FILM FLOPS

The best we can hope for it is that it soils the names of everyone involved for all eternity
>Implying Atomic Blonde looks good
I am sick of the "Government's best assassin goes rogue" movies. It's so boring. There's even a scene where an agent talks about how good she is, like in ALL of them.
>Lost Boys 2 and 3 have 0% ratings
Aw hell no. This is just because Corey Feldman dared to speak out about the systematic abuse in Hollywood, and the fact that Michael Jackson WASN'T one of the abusers.
They don't do animated at all on HitB. I think there were some on Best of the Worst, at least on the Wheel?
But when it comes to new releases, they have never done animated movies.

Who the fuck cares about Popeye though
Gets his 'iconic' projects canceled all the time. Only /co/ cares about him.
Emoji movie is a quick cash grab and parents will take their kids to see it. It's easy to market and not niche and past its prime like Popeye.
Seriously if Genny wasn't directing it /co/ wouldn't give a shit
>inb4 popeye hipsters
Am I the only one who feels like this was planned?
I might not know shit about shit but I can't help but feel Sony intentionally made a shitty movie to get unsuspecting bad movie fags to hand over their $$$$$.
>I'll never get a movie with a qt3.14 Medusa
>Children are stupid but it's not their fault
Oh yes it is. What if i take my kid to watch a movie and he sees the trailer of Emoji and tells me he wants to watch it? He saw it, and he liked it. Nothing you can do about it
>Its more of a sequel to the whole book series. Another turn of the wheel, if you will.
Horseshit. That's just convenient enough of an excuse to racebend Roland. No part of the book series ever implied that Roland repeating his journey would alter his fucking race and the family-friendly nature of his story. It's horseshit, anon.
No, Sony, good idea. This is definitely a better project to push through than Popeye.
>Big angry Philistine with angry dogs walks across a bridge.

I want to vomit
Don't worry, even if the Emoji movie flops hard I'm sure Sony will recoup their losses with this Biblekino masterpiece https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVgQuZf5o1M
>He saw it, and he liked it. Nothing you can do about it
What if my kid sees bleach under the sink and thinks it looks tasty? I should let the chug it down.Nothing I can do about it, right?
I predict around 25-29% of critics will end up giving it an okayish score like 6 or 7 out of 10, which'll bump it up to the late 20s (as if this movie wasn't already a great depression).
The only reason GBs was a disappointment was because China kept saving their asses on the other movies, but not this one.
But we just got a Shanghaiwood, so that won't last.
>Katie Walsh with the "you could be doing so many better things instead like being outside or talking to people" criticism
The movie is shit but this argument always pisses me off
I called it "Shanghaiwood" for a reason. It'll be attempts to match Hollywood films by shoving a white guy on the poster to sell overseas.
Chinese works can be a very fascinating study of how the other side of the world ticks, though.
>It'll be attempts to match Hollywood films by shoving a white guy on the poster to sell overseas.
blah. if i wanted to see movies featuring white people i can already watch loads of other stuff.
i agree on that notion though. i like comparing art from drastically diffrent cultures, becuase once you get a large enough pool you can see the stuff thats the same across totally diffrent time periods cultures and mediums. its interesting to see which story strokes seem to interest us as human beings.
Money doesn't quite balance out perception of the studio. Both are seen as poor representation of the studio and harmed the face value of those involved.
Paul Feig has been banished to schlock and none of the rest of them have any big projects lined up.
That movie was a killer.
Sausage Party killed its supposed leading of Adult Animation.
China already has a lot of stellar films, just none particular /co/ worthy aside from Princess Iron Fan and the Chinese Ghost Story animation.
Check the recent Hong Kong Film Awards, the HK action movie market is still putting out quality films every now and again.
It broke even with its production budget, but fell short of the ad budget and merchandising goals.
That means a loss.
Hopefully it'll be good for the industry, as it demonstrates that even stirring up controversy won't help sell a dud.
By the end, the advertising was basically "Hey, Ghostbusters fans! This movie ISN'T FOR YOU, but you'd better go watch it or you're a MISOGYNIST!"
It has Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas.
It's also completely retarded.
The only notable thing is that videogame based on the movie is, ironically, the single best FPS on GameBoy Advance ever made.
Because it was early 2000s, Halo, Half Life and Deus Ex ruled the industry. FPSes were the single most popular genre, so they tried to cram them everywhere.
Basically, most FPSes on GBA work as a Doom clone - you move with a dpad, up and down move you forward and backward, left and right rotate you (and strafe when holding a shoulder button), you use face buttons to shoot, there is no looking up and down but you have vertical autoaim.
Second best FPS after Ballistic is widely considered to be port of Doom 2, which is considered by many to be the best console port of D2. There's also port of Doom 1, and a Duke Nukem game. Duke even has digitized one liners and shit, but there's no strippers (damn you Nintendo!).
>The Emoji Movie
>The Smiley Movie
>High Five: The Movie

That was the only decent one, especially compared to everything afterwards.
This has actually been a solid year for Sony. Spiderman did fine, Baby Driver over performed, Resident Evil did fine, Dark Tower seems set for a solid run and while the Emoji Movie may suck, between the merch and the low budget it should do just fine. Their only failures this year are Life and Smurfs.
Now Paramount on the other hand, talk about a grease fire.
Oh, and also! They actually managed to put a fucking 3D platformer on GBA. Yes, a console comparable to a SNES has a full-blown 3D platformer on it. It's fucking magic.
They had Serious Sam and Doom on GBA.
Hell there was pic related
wait what is the deal with this guy? he liked valerian, he likes the fifth element? he did not like Spiderman homecoming! who is this guy is he a satirical critic? critics never like what I like they always say the shit I like is dumb or silly... Is this Armond guy for real?
>A financial success
Thank God no. Just because a movie makes back it's production budget doesn't mean it makes money. The general rule of thumb is a movie has to make double it's production budget to BREAK EVEN, because Hollywood ad campaigns are that huge and cost that much money. What's worse, Sony in particular usually spends obscene amounts of money on ad campaigns, to the point of going well over the production budget.
For Ghostbusters in particular, they also wanted to turn that into a franchise with a massive expanded universe ala the MCU, so they created a new division of Sony Films called Ghostcorp, and bought a ton of office buildings and production equipment in preparation. When the movie ultimately flopped, all of this was scrapped. I wouldn't be surprised if Ghostbusters ended up costing Sony nearly a billion dollars.
WTF I LOVE THE EMOJI MOVIE NOW
Not to mention the fact that even if they did manage to squeeze a small amount of profit out of it, there's still the opportunity cost. All the effort and time put into making a small amount of money could have been put towards a more profitable project.
I'm happy they're punished for making shit movies, but at the same time I actually would have really liked to see a well-done Universal monster-verse.
Hopefully Legendary pulls it off with their kaiju-verse.
Behold, the only thing keeping the entire Sony Corporation alive

The more I see interviews with him the more I realise that Erlich in Silicon Valley isn't really separate from TJ himself.
From reading the interview it sounds like he donated to the Clinton campaign less to stop Trump and more to spite his co-stars.
holy fucking shit
The faith film market wants to see shit that will reaffirm their faith, not birds twerking. The quality of the film doesn't matter but the religiosity does and I didn't see anything actually religious in that trailer except the setting.
Is it ACTUALLY that bad? It can't possibly any worse than Boss Baby or The Secret Life of Pets. It feels like it was almost willed into being the worst movie of all time because people kept saying it would be.
>Sony animation has two qt3.14 Mary characters
Sony does it again
A large reason it exists is just to be an ad for apps. The two movies you mentioned might have had crossover ad campaigns and product placement (didn't watch them, so not sure about that last one), but being designed from the get go as an advertisement is horse shit. Wreck-It Ralph got away with that because it was a celebration of games, and people legitimately want to see those characters interaction. The Emoji Movie is just marketing disguised as entertainment.
Honestly, the only thing that could really kill the popular trend of turning anything and everything into a cinematic universe would be the death of the grandfather of the current trend, the MCU itself. And it would have to be a spectacular, totally destructive death that tarnished the idea of ever making a comic book movie for years, which would also harm the DCEU. It would also make extended cinematic universes less appealing to audiences, who would be burned out from this spectacular death, and producers, who knew all along that the MCU was a bad idea and totally weren't trying to emulate it.
>Mac and Me
I fucking loved that film as a kid, along with Flight of the Navigator. Had both of them recorded on the one VHS tape.
I think that people are actually offended by the movie. Objectively the movie probably isn't worth a 1/10. I haven't seen it but it's almost certainly got good production values and visuals and other somewhat redeeming factors that shouldn't let it drop below maybe a 4/10. The first three minutes that I saw certainly aren't a 1/10 when shit like foodfight exists. But people really, really don't like being marketed towards, especially so blatantly.
Reminds me of the cartoon that used to play every where I live very Christmas.
It was the first christmas from the point of view of a camel carrying the 4th wise man.
It took itself a lot more seriously though.
One of the reviews I read said that the setting of the phone is probably the most visually appealing part of the movie. And admittedly, I find some faces that these yellow balls make kind of cute. It's definitely the concept that everyone despises
Well, thats a bit of a Sophie's Choice.
Do they keep Tom Cruise, and insure overseas cash at the cost of no US income? Or do they drop him, take a different approach, and hope that Americans love it this time?
That is kind of a bullshit list, because some of those movies are only reviewed by a few people.
The Wikipedia article is protected , I guess editors don't want /tv/tards shitposting there
Nonreligious people wouldn't be interested in this movie. Religious people wouldn't be interested in a a bible story in the form of a funny animated movie. Who's the target audience?
>makes enough money for a sequel
>this guy is the antagonist in the next movie
How would you respond?
>Religious people wouldn't be interested in a a bible story in the form of a funny animated movie
Are you sure about that? It's supposed to be some simple movie you can take your kids to on christmas.
with enough marketing force you can at least break even on any turd of a kid's movie
especially if you factor in product placement/merch/etc.
the emoji movie is almost guaranteed to be a financial success
>The general rule of thumb is a movie has to make double it's production budget to BREAK EVEN
Production budget + 50m-150m (based on size of ad campaign)
Then you divide it by half, because domestic theatres get about 50% of the ticket price. Overseas it can go as low as 30% or so.
Ghostbusters didn't even get close. Emoji movie had a small budget (50m) and an average ad campaign, so I'd cost it at no more than 125m total. So Sony would want a box office income of 250m to break even
Because of Hollywood accounting, even if they break even it may not really cost them much - they can just avoid taxes on their better earning movies using this
Don't forget Can You Imagine.
The Meme Movie when?
I'm sure most memes are in the public domain, though Trollface is owned by some dude and Forever Alone was copyrighted by Manlet tears, but there is nothing some similarly looking OC substitutes can't fix.
Somebody contact me with Sony so I can sell them my brilliant idea.
>If only this smartphone-centric dud, so happy to hawk real-world apps to its audience, could have done the same in its release strategy - coming out via Snapchat, where it would vanish shortly after arrival. But even that wouldn't be fast enough.
>Something as innocent as "Telling girls they can be anything" is considered an offensive feminazi agenda
Has the Alt-Right really infected the cultural landscape this hard? Are we regressing back to the 1800's?
why would irrelevant critical opinions bother them when they're turning a profit on this movie?
kids don't read critical reviews in the fucking new york times
they just badger their parents to take them to the new movie marketing told them they wanted and parents take them to make them shut the fuck up and so the parents can take a nap in the theater
>movie ends at the manger just after Jesus is born
>the angel above Jesus's crib whips out a disco ball and pop music starts blaring
>The Magi, Mary and Joseph and the barn animals all break into dance
>baby Jesus takes his first steps and begins dabbing in his straw bed
>the first wiseman unravels his gift, a Playstation 4 Pro
>the second one gifts him a sealed copy of the Emoji Movie, now on DVD, Blu Ray and Digital Download
>the third one gives him the tattered and stained remnants of the Popeye script which Jesus immediately rips it up into confetti
Maybe I'm part of the problem but I'd buy a ticket and watch that movie just to keep an eye on the background and see how many obscure old memes they put in the movie.
In this day and age, cultural and medical procedures go hand in hand. Anyone who doesn't fit the 19th century mold of "average" will be subjected to diseases since they can't afford medication. So measles, mumps, black plague, the common cold, they'll make a comeback and kill more than a good chunk of the population. Remember, if you aren't ripped, you're RIP-ped.
That means you die too, since you're not a man with a 6 pack. The fat and skinny die in the process, and unfortunately, if you use this site, you're either or. No one is gonna believe that you actually are fit.
>No one is gonna believe that you actually are fit.
Facts aren't dependent on what you believe. Not that what you believe once you and the rest of the rabble are finally, thankfully, gone.
>TFW based Geendy cursed Sony with meme magic to make the Emoji movie a complete failure
That's what they get for canceling Popeye.
It's nice to see that you value you own mortality and put you and I in the same both. After all, we are the same kind of people that the rest of the internet hate. The 19th century hates your kind as well, so naturally, you have every right to not fear your own quickly coming death.
I see you're delusional. I guess that's what happens when tumblr coddles your kind and says the mentally ill are actually just "marginalized." Once the good old days are back you'll be thrown in an asylum and get the same good old treatment we used to show your kind.
I can't wait.
You've clearly run of responses. Well, that's about the most I could've expected of someone with your limited mental faculties. Make the most of your time, for you soon won't have much of it left.
I can't believe someone with this much delusion would believe that he was nothing but a transgendered black woman trying to pretend to be a white nationalist. That's some classy trolling.
You are now aware that more people liked Norm of the North than the Emoji movie.
It's like you're getting triggered over the fact that people keep responding so you have to one up people by spreading buzzwords and speaking as if tumblr is your god and anything that doesn't conform to it is a "neo-nazi trump supporter"
Get a life.
The only trigger I have is this.
>I Spit On Your Graves 2
Lel, they're all the same fucking movie with few variations. 3 tried something different, but it's still boring shit that appeals only to those with rape or god forbid, extreme femdom fetish.
Ruining threads is what /pol/ does best. Wish they'd stop crossboarding.
I hate that you keep talking to yourself about yourself in the 2nd person. You know, the Suicide Prevention Hotline can really help you deal with all this pent up emotion. But, of course, instead, you wallow in your own feces with a gun to your head.

It's better to start with the source then with the fringes, then?
Killing yourself would be a great example for the rest of society to follow suit, since you seem to be influential enough to follow.
So why not start the trend with yourself as Patient Zero?
