    Godzilla is already outgrossing the Dark PhoeniX in a daily tally.

    They shouldn't have released this. They better not release the other one.

    I wonder if Disney saw this coming and delayed The New Mutants so they can use Dark PhoeniX's flopping as a reason to shelve or release The New Mutants straight to streaming.

    Then they should've done it the other way round. Released New Mutants (since it wouldn't have such an effect on X-Men) and shelve Dark Phoenix so that they would've had more time between the last X-Men film (Apocalypse) and the first MCU one.

    I think since Dark PhoeniX had a bigger budget, featured returning cast members/characters and a sequel to Apocalypse, they couldn't just cancel it. Unlike the New Mutants which is the opposite. Anyway, sending tnm to streaming after Dark PhoeniX flopped sounds fair to me.

    Reminds me of Trank's Fantastic Four movie this one, well maybe not quite as bad but on a similar track. Like watching a train crash in slow motion. The whole way through production it looks iffy, it sounds iffy, everyone's worried it could bomb, then it bombs.

    Not everyone was worried. All the FFINO defenders thought it would do well, and they wanted to help it along by seeing it 10 times.

    I'm not the least bit surprised by this, Disney is basically cutting their losses and settling their accounts. Knowing that both Toy Story 4, Spider-Man Far from Home, Lion King and rerelase of Avengers Endgame. They will make back their sum total easily and then some.

    I'm convinced New Mutants isn't getting released.

    I was on a bit of a high when Mystique died because it was pissing me off with her giving orders. It was right around time Jean went to that junk yard to see Magneto. Then I woke up on train scene and I was like "wtf why are my X- MEN fighting these boring looking humans!" .then I woke up in the credits. LoL

    What was the production budget for this before the reshoots? Because the movie just doesn't look very eXpensive, it doesn't look like it had a budget of 200 million, the movie looks small and small scaled. Genosha, the mansion, the buildings they have used shouldn't take a lot of money. While the previous movies had Cerebro, the subbasement, X-Jet, helicopters. The only thing really new is the space setting which lasted like 5 minutes. Most of the characters are in casual clothing as well. The movie isn't vfx heavy compare to X3. I guess the First Class cast got a pay raise to return for their 4th X-Men film.

    I was wondering the same thing! It doesn’t look like it cost nearly that much. I don’t know where that budget went? I mean the VFX were nice for the most part but nothing so notable that it would cost more than any other film.

    Just FYI - If you make $300m worldwide you only keep around half for US, and less than half everywhere else, down to only 25% in China. Cinema chains need to make a living too. :(

    It looks like money not well spent, just like with Fant4stic's 120 million.

    Man, that sounds like an even worse experience than just watching the movie in full :funny:

    Why would you go to the cinema for Dark PhoeniX just to sleep?

    Last Sunday, I just watched it for the second time and I did sleep but it was because I was so sleepy.

    Didn't intend to fall asleep I just did. Maybe I'll rewatch it again one day at home for the parts I missed.
