Gotta disagree, Ghostbusters is definitely considered a classic here (UK). The reboot will do badly here, but not because we don't like Ghostbusters, we just don't have such a problem with SJW virtue signalling here.

It's a problem, but nothing like as bad as in the states, so fewer people will be guilted into seeing this and pretending its good.

I think warcraft made 50-60 mill opening weekend worldwide. It's hard to compare because it had a staggered international release.

What's funny is warcraft got terrible reviews amoung critics but good reviews amoung viewers while getting praised by most warcraft fans. The consensus on ghostbusters is that it is a poor remake that audiences didn't like but critics and feminists are not allowing it to fail because it supports their political agenda.

Warcraft was less than Ghostbusters for opening weekend, but they had China to save the day.
Also there's all that conspiracy that the other studios wanted Warcraft to fail, because it was produced by now Chinese owned Legendary Pictures, and they were trying to do business differently.

>>
>>72128376
Besides both being flops, they aren't really comparable. John Carter flopped because it had a confusing title, it was an adaptation of a novel that normies had never heard of and the marketing campaign was really shitty. Ghostbusters is a remake of a movie that everyone knows and it has had a massive marketing campaign but it's flopping because the marketing campaign pretty much said all old fans of the franchise are vile misogynists.

I think they broke even with ASM2, but regardless their HQ in Japan was fucking pissed that Sony Pictures couldn't turn a profit on Spider Man of all things. After the emails, ASM failure, and the outrageous asking price they pitched to Marvel, HQ had enough and told them to take whatever number/terms Marvel gave them. Because they needed money and had zero leverage at that point. Which frankly thank god, I'm glad he's back at Marvel. In Ghostbusters case it's a sadder situation because I can't see the franchise getting new life unless it gets a tv show and some new management
>>
Do you think Sony Japan will ever one day realize how retarded Sony Pictures is being and just ream the fuck out of the executive board?
>>
>>72129355
Break even is just not enough for a big franchise movie. ASM3 would need an even bigger budget with possibly even less return.

How does Sony still exist as a movie studio?

There's no way they can have disaster after disaster and still compete with money machines like Disney, Universal. I would guess even WB, Paramount, and Fox are in better shape.

Heres the issue I have with movies today that studios cant seem to grasp. They are so worried about creating a franchise, focusing on movie 2-4, they ultimately shit the bed with the first entry.

>>72130771
This. Marvel managed to hit it out of the fucking park. Whether or not you hate capeshit, you gotta give credit to Feige & co for orchestrating a multibillion dollar franchise.

But suddenly it just doesn't work for everyone? Wow, what a surprise. The only company that had any kind of hope to establish a similar franchise was DC and they are limping along as it is.

The only other exceptions are popular, established anthologies like the Harry Potter series. Like you said, I can't see how companies can dust off old properties and think they'll be worth a damn.

What was the last IP that created a full fledged franchise that was original? The Fast and the Furious series?

They did a great job with Loki. I don't care so much about Doom's origin nearly as much as his personality. If they got his personality right I'd be sold. And I think there's a pretty decent shot they would, unlike Fox.

It's a moot point for now like you said, but at this point it seems conceivable Fox will fail to get another FF movie off the ground in the next few years and eventually let the rights revert like they did with DD.

Go to a haunted house. Like a real haunted house, not some spoopy house that you think is haunted, like one that's reputable.
Of course it doesn't matter, you'll still claim you didn't see or hear anything because you have your head jammed up your ass.
Faggots like you are slaves.
Get the fuck back to work, cuck.

>Why did everything have to become a political battlefield?
Money and easy access to internet validation

>When will the cult-like social justice crowd just let things be?
Never. They believe the cause is too righteous to just stop. We just need to wait for the infighting to cause the movement to implode in on itself and let the louder voices in the current dialogue fade back into irrelevance.

>Why did the left go full retard on identity politics?
A portion of the left has always been about idpol. The only difference is that the portion is getting more invasive into important fields like academia, and it impacts the youth's development. The third wave feminists of the 90's became liberal arts professors of today.

You can all laugh at me for saying this, but that doesn't make it less true:

They're fundamentally communists. When they can't overthrow existing power structures through numbers and strength of arms, they've been taught how to infiltrate, subvert and demoralise them.

Effectively they've been spreading like a disease through every company and branch of media they can get their slimy tendrils into for the last decade or more.

Did you know most "legit and reputable" haunted houses were just made up? In the 60's and 70's Ghosts and shit were super popular, so tourism boards invented stories of murder or evil Madams or mourning wives. It's all made up buddy to get dollars out of dumb tourists. None of thouse houses are haunted.

As much as liberals like to bitch about 'muh McCarthy', declassified documents show he had about a 95% success rate in fingering people who genuinely were communist agents.

If the idea of a shadowy cabal working behind the scenes to spread an agenda seems like insane tinfoil hat conspiracy theorising to you, look up the following:

>The Business Plot
>Iran-Contra
>Project MK-Ultra
>Operation Northwoods
>Cointelpro

And there's plenty more besides.

There are occasions where a studio decides that there is enough interest to warrant a sequel, but will make serious changes to the cast, director, producer, writers, or just a significantly smaller budget.
With the Chinese market out of the picture and a lukewarm reception everywhere else, I'd say that's about the best case scenario for Ghostbusters going forward.

Clearly you've never visited London.

Most of our blacks are from the West Indies, which is the source of the bulk of 'muh reparashuns!' calls, and Nigeria, which has a massive stick up it's arse over the whole 'Scramble for Africa' thing.

We've had country-wide riots over 'police racism and brutality' because some black guy got ventilated by a police armed unit...whilst driving in a vehicle transporting automatic weapons for their gang war.

right after the film's opening weekend? That'd just discourage audiences even further at this point.

They're going to wait for this movie to languish in discount theaters for at LEAST another couple months before announcing they're abandoning the property. That's what any sensible film company would do. Oh, wait, Sony Pictures isn't a sensible company at all. They might actually be serious.

I seem to remember Sony saying there would be a spin-off movie with an all male cast. I always saw that as preemptive damage control, if the fembusters fail they can just role out the new new team. Sort of like what they did with Spiderman and The Amazing Spiderman.

Truth be told, I'm kinda hoping that the next Ghostbusters thing they do face plants even harder. That's how sick of reboots I've gotten.

I don't understand why guys still give this movie the attention it doesn't deserve, Someone already mention this movie is just a huge marketing promo for the merchandise and mentioned that the royalty money is what Sony are really after which includes renewing some old films merch and licensing them out again which is kike tier but it's new money, When you look at it further, this is actually not the riskiest venture for Sony. Rachet and Clank, The Interview or Sausage fest actually has more risk. If you guys really want this movie to fail then just simply stop talking about it!
