Whether it continues to make bank depends on how good it ends up being. Critics were wrong about Batman v Superman and Ghostbusters, they could be wrong again.
It'll open big because there's a hardcore group of fans who will see it no matter what.

Yep. Rotten Tomatoes is part of Fandango's portfolio of digital properties, and "Fandango is a unit of NBCUniversal, which holds a majority interest in the company. Warner Bros. Entertainment has a minority interest in Fandango."

SOURCE: http://www.fandango.com/info/corporate-ownership

So if Rotten Tomatoes has a bias against certain studios, one would expect that they would be trying to make all movies made by Universal and Warner Bros. have high RT scores, and all other studios have low RT scores.

Mike and Dave has a 39%....

Not sure what the box office has to do with Rotten Tomatoes tho.
He was saying there has been no buzz for Suicide Squad and he doesn't know anyone that wants to see it. I told him he's wrong, that this has been one of the most anticipated films of the year, and the opening numbers will prove that.

As for Batman v Superman, again, your small group of friends means nothing in the big picture. I know lots of people who loved it, and a few who hated it.

Rotten Tomatoes is probably the biggest review site out there. Many will check there to see a films rating before deciding to go to a movie or not, so I'm sure it does have an impact of box office, even if it is a rather small impact. I think word of mouth is more important.

I think it would be wiser to create a petition to shut down the internet.

I hope a movie is made about the epic struggle that led to the decision to end a petition that clearly could have changed the course of human history as we know it.

How about we just go see movies we want to see?



I'll not be going to Suicide Squad. It was a personal decision. Box office numbers won't lie.



However, I can't wait to see Sausage Party.

...Oh wait, the reviews are great?

...Guess I'll have to skip it.

Same here. I never understood the hype for it and judging by the critic reaction, I guess I may have been right.
