I was hoping to see X-Men Apocalypse today but it looks like that won’t happen. I’ll be seeing it sometime this week but I don’t have a definitive date yet. So far Apocalypse is predicted to make about $77 million for the opening weekend, which is lower than an expected $80 million haul.
The reviews have been very mixed, with the film currently sitting at 47% on Rotten Tomatoes. The audience rating is 74% and after the critical beating BatmanvSuperman took, I am not paying any attention to the reviews. BvS wasn’t amazing overall, but 30% on Rotten Tomatoes is just unfair in my opinion.
Some reviews and articles do mention that Apocalypse might be a victim of superhero fatigue- since it is the fourth comic book film of the year. That is not to say that this is the only reason it has mixed reviews, but I believe that may play a part. I’ve discussed Marvel bias before, and this film could be more prone to fatigue syndrome if people are already wary of a non-MCU film. I am curious to see what impact this potentially has on Suicide Squad.
Once I see it, I’ll put up a review on the site and YouTube. Enjoy your sunday everyone.
