After poor $380 million at the box office fromIndiana Jones: The Dial of Destiny (It should be remembered that the blockbuster cost a modest sum of 294.7 million dollars in total) – that’s almost 200 million deadweight losses for Lucasfilm (Sources CNET.com). The Lightning fromAndy Pussetti also bit with a near deficit 200 million also for them warner.

Already stop the surprise effect. The feature film had raised everyone’s questions thanks to a well-oiled marketing campaign that piqued fans’ curiosity.

The filmmaker has already released her feminist message, which has caused controversy. Between those who say the film is ” anti-men » and those who argued that it was just a big advertisement for the doll, opinions skyrocketed, leading to a de facto dynamic word of mouth.

However, this is neither a feature film with a spectacular ideology nor a renewal in the history of cinema.
