So if you haven't heard, Captain Marvel, as of right now when I'm recording this video-- is the #1 movie in the world. From Thursday night's release to Tuesday morning, Captain Marvel pulled in a half billion dollars.
Love it or hate it, Captain Marvel managed to pull in over $700 million since the movie's release, and hey man-- it's like I have said-- money don't lie.
So the way these big blockbuster bursting movies keep their legs going is the diehard fans see the movie multiple times, and then they go tell the people on the fence and the casual fans," hey man...you gotta see this, it's so good! I want to tell you why it's so good, but I don't want to spoil the movie, so hurry up and go see it!"
So I'm just going to tell y'all that I saw the movie on Thursday night and on Saturday morning during release weekend. I was also THAT guy at my friend's birthday party last Monday night telling everyone why they needed to hurry up and see the movie.
So if you didn't know, I really enjoyed Captain Marvel, and I will try to find time to post a few videos. I'm kinda busy with these 3 workout groups in the Urban Acolyte Academy and I'm kinda in the process of moving into my other house and selling this one.
But to get to the real business of this video-- there are seriously people of the "I'm a geek, but I hate everything related to geekdom" community who are going around saying that Disney is faking their numbers on Captain Marvel.
Like really? These are the same cats who were trying to tank the Audience anticipation scores on the Rotten Tomatoes website. Like I think they got it down to like 22% audience anticipation-- meanwhile the large auditorium at my favorite theatre was packed on Thursday night and on Saturday morning.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are leaving a bunch of bad reviews on the Rotten Tomatoes now that you can leave a review-- but like I said, money don't lie. How is your bad review going to change the fact that this is probably going to be one of the highest grossing films of the year?
I mean no amount of excuse making is going to change the amount of money that this movie has made and will continue to make. I mean, Kevin Fiege is already talking about the sequel.
