Early reviews seem to be positive, so I wouldn't count this movie out...yet.

It seems like there was a lot of good feedback at the press release on 7/8/16.  The premiere is tonight and reveiwers will be there.  I think by Sunday (Monday at the latest) we will know if $40MM is too high or too low of a projection for opening weekend.  The only negative I see: it will be competing with other family films like "Finding Dory" and "The Secret Lives of Pets", both getting great reviews.  And, with "Star Trek: Beyond" opening the following weekend, it could be an uphill battle to make it past the $100MM mark, domestically.

Sounds like conservative lowballing due to negative trailer feedback. Nostalgia still reigns supreme. {nm} RollingThunder Jul 09, 09:01

Sounds like wishful thinking to me. Seems like a hell of a lot of 'nostalgia' projects have fallen flat on their faces lately. {nm} hyperzeitgeist Jul 09, 09:19

Agreed. And the poor (and unfair) response to the gender switch isn't helping {nm} numbersix_99 Jul 09, 11:09

I believe that's a response to the comedy switch. {nm} Fitch3k Jul 09, 13:46

but not because they are nostalgia projects. {nm} Moviesnob Jul 09, 11:55

Can't wait for the embargo to lift. It's going to be a train wreck. {nm} Baron_Darcon Jul 09, 14:51

Not always. It depends on the context of the nostalgia. {nm} Jay_Beezy Jul 09, 15:25

The thing here is ; if reviews are negative ( as we expect ) no under 35 auds will go see it {nm} JMT-NL Jul 09, 09:40

Honestly it felt like there was very little feedback came out of it. Mainly because there's an embargo that lifts tomorrow. Jay_Beezy Jul 09, 13:35

Well according to this review the movie is very misandrist, and it's god awful, they violate the own rules they set out in the movie Baron_Darcon Jul 10, 08:48

I think this movie is going to tank badly. Reminds me of how Marvel is now making Iron Man an African-American woman in the comics. {nm} MoneyMagnet Jul 09, 10:59

Dr Doom is the new Iron Man... RazorHawk Jul 09, 11:34

Both Riri Williams and Dr. Doom take on the Iron Man symbol after the events of Civil War II (only in the comics). Stuff like this happens-- chosenone2oo5 Jul 09, 11:56

Does t {nm} Jay_Beezy Jul 09, 13:35

Whoops. Accidentally hit the reply button. Does this refer to now when he says early tracking? Early tracking was 40-50M 2-3 weeks ago. Jay_Beezy Jul 09, 13:38

Nielsen continues polling up to the release {nm} Moviesnob Jul 09, 13:47

fwiw, DL didn't use the word "tracking" in the article. reelreptile did. {nm} Antibody Jul 09, 14:45
