    Conversely the new Star Trek is doing quite well:

    The lesson to be learned here? Movies that include actual diversity can and and will peform quite well at the box office.

    Conversely, movies that bastardize a beloved piece of intellectual property with a shoehorned political agenda to satisfy the man-hating taco frotters of Hollywood will financially fall on their faces the way God intended.

    My only hope is that Planned Parenthood gets shut down as a result of this movie because mothers fear killing their innocent babies and turning them into ghosts that quirky women from SNL central casting have to Ghostbust. Balance must be restored to the universe.

    It's good to hear that Ghostbusters is doing badly and Star Trek is doing great.
    That's the way it should be.

    And the GamerGaters and their related people will claim it as a victory... a victory I couldn't care less about.

    Actually it's about ethics in busting ghosts.

    No it really wasn't. If we were able to downvote, I would downvote you for saying that.

    No. I mean I would downvote anyone who thinks the new Ghostbusters movie is a good movie.
    I find that offensive. I'm not racist.

    As I said before, Ghostbusters is a slow and steady movie. Star Trek had a show and 3 movies in the 2000's, so yes it's going to make more money.

    What hope is there for women if they can't even competently helm a movie about scifi domestic cleaning?

    A lot of the Summer blockbusters aren't doing that well. Well, not the shitty ones anyway.

    Those f**king Turtles still haven't caught up to their budget and neither has Alice.

    Alas, this thread provides an example for the downside of not being able to downvote.

    Now roaming the new board since [as] felt the need to destroy my old home board.

    I'm not sure that makes sense.

    I can see why. The pickings of this year have been pretty poor.

    I mean, we have a sequel to Independence Day, a sequel to Ice Age, a sequel to a live action TMNT adapation and a Ghostbusters remake, for goodness sake.

    Who the hell wants to see an Independence Day 2 when Independence Day 1 itself was a piece of crap?

    Well it's Bay's Turtles so it's not that surprising. The first one was pretty bad and a second
    movie never should have been made. The only good thing about the new movie is Beebop and Rocksteady.

    The second Alice movie is so so compared to the first. I'm not surprised it's not doing well.

    Star Trek has remained current from its tv shows and movies, so it's guaranteed to make more money than something that hasn't had anything new in almost thirty years.
