    Let's not kid ourselves Blade Runner 2049 is almost guaranteed to be no.1 that weekend, but that doesn't mean MLP can't do well.

    Rotten Tomatoes for better or worse is a factor for is people are going to to see a movie nowadays, not a surefire way albeit but it can help a movie. Same goes for good old fashioned word of mouth. If the MLP Movie is genuinely good, then it might stand a chance in being successful. Remember this generation got it's start by blowing expectations out of the water and defying the age old stigma of MLP being bad by default, if it can do that again then the rest is history.

    I'm worried that the stigma of MLP will keep fans of the show from seeing the movie in theaters.

    The previous Lego films did good and they were toy-based films. The Ninjago film however is more "original" than the previous films, which had characters like Batman and other DC heroes/villains and other well known characters. Ninjago however, comes from a show that wasn't exactly scheduled very often. Especially with TTG taking most timeslots.
    MLP is a well-known franchise though like DC,Marvel,Star Wars,etc.

    Saw an ad for it on the Hub during the behind the scenes special. Still haven't seen anything on Cartoon Network or Disney XD. Not even on their apps.
    Seriously starting to doubt if this movie is going to do well.

    So, why exactly did they make so many TV ads if they aren't even being shown on networks like those?

    Don't know, but there's only one week left. Those ads should start appearing a lot more often and frequently now.

    I don't think that will be a factor. If you've seen the convention panel tapings, a lot of adult fans attend those with the target kid audience.

    Be sure to keep it quiet for the sake of not giving it attention. I'm not even going to bother looking it up to see if this is true.

    I saw a commercial for the movie during "This Is Us", of all shows. Though I guess that was aimed with parents in mind.

    C'mon Rotten Tomatoes, give us critic reviews already! Usually wide releases have at least 50 pre-release, and I fear the fact we're not getting them until the last minute could severely harm the opening success of the film.

    I have heard they have an embargo, but I thought the Emoji Movie only did it specifically because Sony knew so many were going to hate it.

    There were maybe one or two reviews from people who claimed to catch early screenings, and they said it was good.

    Yeah, but you'd have to actively look for those. Many moviegoers like looking at Rotten Tomatoes before deciding to go to a movie.

    I saw a commercial after yesterdays 5:00 showing of The Loud House. That should help a bit

    There’s now one review on Rotten Tomatoes.
