Woe to "X-Men: Days of Future Past." One of Many...Too Many "X-Men" Sequels...and....Joss Whedon Didn't Direct It
Memorial Day Weekend 2014. People will be visiting with family, getting drunk, barbecuing, throwing a football around, tossing horseshoes....and not going to see...."X-Men: Days of Future Past" in the vast numbers everyone went to see Joss Whedon's "The Avengers."
What will be the two primary reasons this movie tanks at the Box Office?
1. It will take it itself too seriously and not be fun to watch as a result.
2. There will be too much philosophizing claptrap in the dialogue the audience won't give two hoots about. You don't try and bring..... "I Claudius" .....to a summer superhero movie. You try and entertain with a summer superhero movie instead.
Perhaps most importantly.... a summer superhero movie isn't supposed to be a...."Master's Thesis"....in filmmaking, intended solely for the viewing of college professors at "Harvard." Once you go that route....you have instantly lost the mass market, movie going audience.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
