Eternals Has a Record Low Rotten Tomatoes Score

Eternals Has a Record Low Rotten Tomatoes Score

As of this writing, it’s at 63% fresh and it has been trending downward.

If it goes just four points lower it will be officially Rotten.

Is Disney out of “promotional” money? Because even the career shill sites like freaking I09 are giving it bad reviews. They have to mobilize their troops soon or risk prelaunch embarrassment.

The question this is raising for me is, has Fiege lost control of the promotional budget?

I was taking it for granted that this one would have a big first-week release due to “fortified box office” returns (ie Marvel buying up big blocks of seats like it did for Shang-Chi and Captain Marvel). That doesn’t cost Marvel too much because 90% of the first-week box office revenue goes right back to Marvel. It does screw the theaters pretty badly because there is no one to buy popcorn if the purchased seats are empty.

But if Fiege has lost control of the promotional budget then he is now well and truly under Bob Chapek’s yoke.

Okay, I’m done here.

UPDATE: Now it’s 61%

2ND UPDATE: OCT 30, 60%, And I’m smelling corporate sabotage. I suspect Chapek does have control of the promotional budget.

    I was thinking the same thing. Disney has a huge debt ($60 Billion) thanks to their endless “woke” racist BS. Their slush fund must have dried up. I love watching Disney fail and lose money, they earned it. I also have enjoyed watching China (CCP) betray their stupid greedy traitorous asses.

    I have always wondered how much of the MCU was/is really Feige.

    In this world of lies that we live on we’ve been fed the idea that it all was Feige’s. However one doesn’t go from professional to woke with the enthusiasm that Feige has exhibited lately. Either that or Faige could be just a weak man succumbing to pressure instead of quitting a champion.

      The Dark Herald has written a very interesting article about this a few months ago – you should check it out: https://arkhavencomics.com/2021/05/12/how-worried-is-marvel-anyway/

        Bingo, “Ike Perlmutter”:

        In September 2015, Perlmutter stopped overseeing the development of Marvel Studios. Disney felt the studio head, Kevin Feige, should report directly to the chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, Alan Horn, so all cinematic properties of Disney, including Pixar and Lucasfilm, were under one management structure. The restructuring was allegedly due to Feige’s “frustration” of working with Perlmutter as well as some alleged controversial comments and actions by Perlmutter, such as replacing the casting of Terrence Howard as James Rhodes with Don Cheadle because black people “look the same.”[14] A person with knowledge of his creative approach said, “Ike Perlmutter neither discriminates nor cares about diversity, he just cares about what he thinks will make money.”[

    Even on Reddit the shilling has been getting weaker: after the first couple of weeks, everybody stopped pretending that Black Widow and Shang-Chi were anything to write home about, and right now nobody is mounting that much of a defense for Eternals. ‘Tis truly fascinating, to behold the fall and death of a titan.

    I’m sure there’s a bit of “superhero fatigue” after Endgame finished. Plus Covid of course.

    But it was very convenient for the wokesters that any low theater numbers could be handwaved away as “because of Covid…not our fault.” Plus any negative feedback on shows or movies (i.e. the Tomatometer) was attributed to a “small minority of alt-right trolls” doing “review bombing.”

    By now the Disney execs have to be tired of hearing those two excuses over and over. At some point, hiring actors, writers and directors for their skin color and LGBT points catches up with you….

    i will give them one thing;
    in the new trailers, they actually do address the question of “what the hell have you clowns been doing while Thanos killed half the people on the planet/in the universe?”‘
    .
    the provided answer isn’t very convincing. but at least they tried to provide one.
    .
    here’s a question:
    when Thanos Snappened the universe

    did half the Celestials die?
