The audience has spoken.
And they are not happy with Mortal Engines, the new blockbuster produced by Peter Jackson.
Per boxofficemojo.com's projections through December 23, 2018, the $100 million dollar budgeted film about a post-apocalyptic Earth where a variety of cities such as London survive as gigantic mobile platforms on wheels has grossed less than $12 million domestically since its release on December 14.
In a world where resources are scarce, how does it make ANY sense to have to propel your cities on giant wheels and treads? You have to agree that is a seriously goofy premise.
Moviegoers thought it was such a stupid premise because they actually went to see the 14,573rd version of Robin Hood instead. Yes, Robin fcuking Hood, which brought in just over $30 million in North America.
Perhaps if Mortal Engines had featured Robin Hood were riding atop a fast moving Sherwood Forest-mobile shooting arrows at a furiously zooming Nottingham piloted by the Sheriff it would have gotten more butts in ye olde seats.
