Except they didn't go see DP cause they were to busy watching End Game or waiting on Sword and Shield for Switch lol
Its plot won't save it, but the added comedy and animation skits might. I think Pokemon movie was marketed well, but being a Detective Pikachu adaptation threw people unfamiliar with either pokemon or that story off in the cinema, and the movie did a poor job of justifying why any of those Mons were as necessary for the screentime as they were.
Sonic Boom Defense Force. Seems like a good idea.
Like this a lot
That was mostly me
I’m in the same boat as you, I really liked Detective Pikachu but it seems like kind of a hard sell if you’re unfamiliar with Pokémon.Its plot won't save it, but the added comedy and animation skits might.

Pokemon fans gushed while regular audiences were like "Whah??". Even good CGI can't give it a free pass for not getting the right points across.
This movie, cliche as it is looks like it has a solid plot, that does a good job of making you invested in what you need to be invested in, which is Sonic and Jim Carrey's rivalry. As long as the lines are quippy and Jim Carrey is funny, it gives the movie tremendous goodwill with someone just going to see a piece of entertainment.
Seems to be for the four-day weekend, and I'm not sure how to parse some of that, but holy hell if that's true. The upper estimate for four-day was $47m.
You making a joke, but shadow can just make constructs out of energy. Its legit a power he has that is underutilized and it would genuinely be fun in that sort of game because he could just have dante style switching for free
We'll see. I've been keeping an eye on the amateur trackers on BOT but what they do is compare the pre-sales of various movies for a local theater or handful of theaters. It's extrapolation. A $60M 4-day weekend would be great and would set Sonic on Pikachu's warpath, so I'd like them to be right but let's see what happens.
It wasn't solid. They needed to spend more time on the story. It was a mess.I still wonder if the first pokemon movie having a talking pikachu was the right call. Also debuting during the endgame run probably hurt them. I thought that movie was pretty solid, Im shocked we havent heard of more live action Pokémon stuff being in production yet.
Unsatisfied with the Sonic movie not being a total disaster, gamers must constantly remember that the movie could have been a total disaster in order for the “Sonic is the worst thing ever made” running gag to endure.
Yeah, but unlike Sonic '06, the Trailer 1 Sonic design was actually bad.
Horrifying warts that never should have existed is literally what Sonic is all about. The occasional good game is just a weird anomaly.
