>We spoke with a movie theater manager who asked for anonymity. He told us they had “exactly 25 no shows for every showing of Captain Marvel on Thursday through Saturday.”>The manager told us this was definitely abnormal, “It’s definitely not normal. People usually show up when they pay for tickets…I’m not sure what it is, we’ve seen big groups not show up before, but they get refunds.”>I asked whether or not these tickets were purchased in bulk, but that information isn’t available, “I’m not sure if they were bought all at once because Fandango doesn’t give us that information, but exactly 25 no shows for every show is probably statistically impossible.”>The manager would add, “I would say it’s someone trying to make the ticket sales look better than they really were.”>He would also indicate he saw significant drop offs in ticket sales from Sunday at his theater, “Sunday for Captain Marvel wasn’t good and Monday and Tuesday were terrible.

>>111448074oh no no no no pftahhahahahahahahawhy aren't women going to see this? it's a you go girl flick
>>111448081Big if true
>>111448081what is this from?
>>111448143WITE MAN BTFO!
>>111448074What would be the benefit of doing this? does a movie doing well in the box office mean more people will go see it next time? did they invest too much into Brie to allow her to fail? If this is actually true, what is the mouse up to here?
>>111448081I want to believe. It makes sense but unless theaters group together and blow the whistle hard, one voice really says nothing
>>111449277look at all the good "press" making the haters look retarded. well worth the price
I confirm the movie theaters are empty and most aren't even showing Captain Marvel. They actually just play old episodes of tale spin. Also Brie Larson has been spotted attending them alone and masturbating in the seats. You know it's true because I said so online.
>>111449277If Captain Marvel is outed as a flop, less people will want to go see Endgame. Disney is in full damage control to save face.
I bet it's all money from those "send underprivileged girls to see Captain Marvel" GoFundMes.
>>111449363This. Fucking pathetic.
>>111449363That's not how the economy works. open up a comic book store no one shows up, and I instead by every single, can the store to make it look like I'm making a profit I don't actually make a profit.... There's no saving face in this the movies only successful if it's successful if they pretended successful it hurts them regardless. I understand you don't like women but that doesn't mean there are conspiracies out there.
>>111449356>They actually just play old episodes of tale spin.i'd buy a ticket for that
>>111449426People will see endgame no matter what. Whether or not they see what comes after is another story.
>>111449430I like women, but I don't like bad movies.Where does that leave me?
>>111448074>tfw everyone who donated to the "send girls to see captain marvel" got scammed
Do you understand the fraud necessary to construct such a scheme? It would involve hundreds if not thousands of people. Consequently, litigation would be brought forward by shareholders if Disney were found out. The risk is too great for a company like Disney. It makes zero sense since they can just continue making more shitty feminist movies if they have an agenda.
>>111449356>They actually just play old episodes of tale spinIf they looked as good as the remastered Rescue Rangers, I'd prefer to watch that over Captain Marvel to be honest.
Got to keep the share prices up desu. Having a big bomb story in the news not good for the stock price. Normies don't care about shit like this so no one will know the diff.
>>111449430>comparing mega-billion corporation to mom-and-pop comic book storePants-on-head retarded. Yes, Disney can do this because they can afford to do this. A better allegory would be you PRETENDING to buy your own comics and constantly give yourself a refund but never post your refunds for them publicly. Disney is just money laundering its own money into the movie to make it look like this movie is a huge new franchise besides what this person said.>>111449363 Besides that, the plan is to replace The Big Three with Captain Marvel and the Diversity Avengers. They MUST make it look like these new characters are in demand so the future normies prop up the franchise for them later.
same thing with Black Panthersame thing with Wonder Womanfeminism and diversity are what they are pushing hard on the audience and they have to inflate the box office to make it seem like these movies are popular. Having these movies flop at the box office would show the whole world their agenda has failed and audience don't like it except soibois and fags on 4eddit
>>111449330Physical pleasure is so overrated.
>>111449500Never put it past big corporations to make the stupidest mistakes because they believe they're "too big to fail". I assure you, they absolutely are able to fail when the SEC/IRS/FBI come a-knocking.
>>111449483Do you make up bull shit to fit your personal narrative? That's all this conspiracy shit is. People upset the world didn't react the way they wanted them too, so they had to go and craft a reality where they don't feel pathetic and alone.
You guys know the theaters keep 50% of the ticket sale right? Its not like Disney could do this without losing money. It doesnt make sense unless you think they are willing to lose money for ideological reasons.
>>111449500>yfw when you believe germans conspired to gas jews, but it's impossible for a jewish company to conspire to buy movie ticketsLoL
>>111449562Makes me wonder if Black Panther didn't do nearly as well as it did. It was one of the more mediocre marvel movies yet won tons of awards and hailed as the best marvel has to offer.
>>111449500FUCKING THIS. The reality and absurdity of such a concept is far less likely that PEOPLE HAPPEN TO ENJOY SOMETHING YOU DONT. Fucking male babies. Seriously, no one likes your dick cheese, that doesn't mean the world is a conspiracy.
>>111449619You thinking the Holocaust is fake explains a lot. What a cunt.
>>111449430are you legitimately retarded or are you just jewing around here?
>>111449500You really think this is outside of the capabilities of Disney? They are over half of Hollywood at this point, and saving face for their most successful franchise probably would be worth the risk for them. The market has been saturated with super hero movies for over 10 years now, they know that a bad flop for them might be the beginning of the end.
>>111448074We spoke with the mother of the individual who asked for anonymity. She told us they had their son for 34 years, since that "he was always a homosexual, and he is putting a carrot in his ass on Thursday thorough Saturday.The parent told us this was definetely normal in his behavior. "It is definetely nornal. Peoole don't understand what a little faggot he is. I'm not sure why, but we have seen a group of black individuals visiting him to have sex, and he is asking for refunds if they don't fuck him with their 8 inch cock.I asked her if OP is still able to shit after such a hard procedure with his anal opening. "I am not sure because his a big boy now, but his ass must hurt because he spends hours and hours on an imageboard, writing hoaxes about a comic book hero movie for children. Also I guess he is wearing diapers because after so many cocks it is stastistically impossible for his shit to not fall out instantly.She would also indicate that since his boy turned 34 less and less black individuals are fucking him in the ass. "Sunday wasn't good, and Monday was terrible too. If this rate continues my husband will need to fuck hiss ass too, maybe it will motivate him to find a real job."
>nobody talking about Disney laundering money
>>111449614I'm 90% sure that somewhere near the full price of ticket sales goes to the movie creators, theaters get all their money from food
>>111449430But isn't that why comic book stores are shutting? They're being forced to buy multiple copies of comics which don't sell if they want copies of the comics which do?
>>111449667This. Objective truth needs ironclad laws to protect it from the incel internet Nazis.
>>111449670Wow. Go back to pol you twat
you people are so delusional.
>>111449689Buy a ticket to CM and take a picture of the people watching it. See how many's there.Go ahead, I'll wait.
Something is definitely wrong where>news in my country say CM is the biggest superhero opening in the HISTORY of my country>...kay>check numbers>check old data>Is the biggest superhero opening...in the last 10 years and only if you ignore Avengers, Ultron, Civil War, Winter Soldier, Infinity War, Guardians and BvSThey're treating CM like is the biggest shit ever and last weekend I went to the cinema 3 times, CM was almost empty, and friends in different cities told me the sameI also take OP's article with a grain of salt
>>111449500>Do you understand the fraud necessary>open company x, company x changes disney 100m for 'services', company x bulk purchases 100m of tickets for movie from fandangowow so hard
>>111448081>my dad works for disney
>>111449635They definitely did this with Black Panther. What was with all the "Inner-City Youth" programs and organizations "buying" tickets? They get federal funding so if they MISUSED federal funding why weren't they chastised? Because muh racism. Because it's more important for a black kid to see a black guy dressed like a cat more than getting school tutoring.
>>111449783This proves the theaters are empty cause internet facts.
>>111449671It would be a million times easier to just cheat the figures and not bother with this weird conspiracy of sending individual people with $5000 in cash to local movie theatres to buy tickets in bulk.
Lies. I took this picture yesterday when I saw the moovie.
>>111449426Bitch reeks of desperation
>>111449915>THEY CHEATED HOW COULD THEY GET AWAY WITH THIS USA GOVERNMENT HELPjesus fucking christ, they dont need to use subterfuge or distance themselves from it for anything other than PR reasons, there is no law that precludes disney from buying cinema tickets, they could buy out every cinema for the next year if they wanted
>>111449744pipe down shlomo not everyone is from /pol/
>>111449906>Get factual evidence>Nah, I'd rather be a fungus eating contrarianMan, it stinks! Who cut the brie?
>>111450029Anyone who thinks the holcaust was fake is from pol
>>111450022they practically did with the last jedi, even then they couldn't get litty enough to beat The Rock
>>111449500You sad deluded fool. They strong arm critics, Google and Rotten Tomatoes. I bet you think elections are fair and honest as well
>>111450039Brie cheese doesn't have a strong odor. You are thinking blue, or gorgonzola.
>>111449783>people are braindead and they eat up every single capeshit>magically they will stop seeing it god knows why, so disney needs to to such things>the only proof for it are some pictures on the internet, a neckbeard on youtube and it must be true because you are assblasted about this movie too muchI guess you believe in chemtrail or flat earth too
>>111449277A lot of people look at the box office as an indicator of quality. This tactics make perfect sense even without conspiration spergs. Nowadays even shit movies have promotions that costs 300+ million, giving 50 million to buy your own tickets to boost opening weekend is pennies in comparison.
>>111448074Why didn't Disney just pay Brie to shut her mouth instead of wasting even more money on tickets?
>>111450083No one doubts strong arming critics. Or sites. But this? Way to much to do and could go wrong. It's just not plausable. It's ridiculous.
>>111450052Yeah, that must be why every country has to make laws to keep people from challenging the official narrative.
>>111450092what kind of proof do you need? higher ups at disney admitting it on video? (which they'd never do)
>>111449356Wait, is she masturbating to Tailspin? That’s something we have in common. Waifued
>>111450052again rabbi this isnt about you keep on topic please
>>111450039>I hae evidence g-guys believe me! I have 10 pictures from the cinemas all around the USA! That is muh hard proof! Also muy favorite jewtuber confirms it!!!>if you don't believe you are sucking CAPTAIN FUNGUSSS!!!!! Also I will tell mom!Pathetic, kys
>>111450121Every country, or just 16?
>>111450022There are federal laws that prevent a company from engaging in fraudulent behavior to give a false impression of value. I don't know if Disney is incorporated in Delaware like most companies, but there is state law to boot. A company cannot cook the numbers to mislead investors. Disney has been around something like a 100 years. They're not going to risk the litigation and their name for a stupid marvel movie.
>>111450133I’d need evidence presented by a reputable source, I’ve yet to see any.
>>111448074who cares?as long as is good publicity for endgame, which seems like a fun movie, it's okay
>>111450190just every country that matters, amirite goy
>>111450211Disney is too big for little things like fraud to be a problem for them.
>>111450119>see cute girl >ask if the wants to see CM >she agrees >buy ALL the seats in kinoplex for 5000 $ cash to make it extra romantic>don't have the balls to show up
>>111448074if you were doing this you should probably just the extra dough to hire some illegal immigrants to watch the movie as wellyou could spin it as a positive too - “captain marvel beloved by mexicans”
>>111450120I'm sure if someone dug hard enough they could find validity to it. Too many people were saying the same thing. It was weird for me personally because on opening day I had friends who said the exact same the thing. Called me and face time me in theaters because I refused to support that movie. Half empty to empty showings during prime time hours. When online they showed all the seats were filled. For all, we know there is a stipulation on not telling anyone out of fear of dissuading people from coming. You already saw how far they were willing to go with Rotten Tomatoes and having the access media only reporting the exact same talking points without even discussing the opposing view. Don't put it past them dude as all I'm saying.
>>111450083I actually seem to be one of the most reasonable people in thisb thread since I'm not entertaining some ridiculous conspiracy to commit fraud by Disney. Show me the proof that doesn't involve inadmissible hearsay evidence.
>>111450309>too many peopletop kek
>>111450360Keep reading the post shill.
>>111449430It's an attempt at manipulating early sales reports so that people will think "wow this movie sold out at my local cinema, it must be good!"
>>111450253Us and uk don't matter?
>>111450341It wasn't like the fappenning where there is a central place to collect all the pictures. Websites who weren't on Disneys payroll reported. But hell even Watergate was considered a joke at the beginning.
>>111450341>inadmissible hearsay evidence.This is a court of public opinion, not a court of law.
>>111450411the uk has been completely overshadowed by the leaf menace
>>111448074Did they do this globally? It wasn't exactly record breaking in the US but it did a lot better WW.
>>111450481Yes. Disney even bought a street cinema in Mogadishu.
>>111448074This makes sense. I bought a reserved seat on opening weekend on fandango, and there were clearly less than 10 seats available.In the actually theater it was mostly full but there were clearly more than 10 empty seats, around 30 seems right
>>111450520pretty sure women in capeshit is haram
>>111448074Do people think that if a movie sells tickets other people will go see it? Regardless of whether it was good or not? Are Americans THAT gullible?
>>111450610It's not just Americans you snooty fuck. The logic goes that if it's making lots of money then there's got to be something to it, and that applies everywhere. China in particular eats this shit up. They go to see popular (read: money-making) American movies just as a social thing, they don't even care if it's good as long as they can tell their friends about it.
>>111449689Shitty pasta is shitty
>>111450671That is the saddest thing.
>>111450437That's the problem. People are formulating these ridiculous theories as to why the movie made so much money. Does anyone realize the distribution window for the movie was only 3 days whereas most marvel movies are 10-14 days? They front loaded the release probably to save face because even they knew the movie was a turd.I accept media platforms artificially raising the score of the movie for some cultural agenda, but I'm not buying that Disney is engaged in an international conspiracy to inflate numbers, especially over such an insignificant movie like Captain Marvel.
>>111448143Actual women don't give a shit about super heroes, being super heroes, Star Wars, Ghostbusters, whether or not James Bond is a sexist, etc. Hollywood is literally kowtowing to a handful of angry lesbians who's entire lives revolve around being spiteful toward males.
>>111449330You opened the box, there will be more than simple fornication in store for you and us both.
>>111450749It's dishonest and to have their paid shills go along with it knowing it was dog shit just to sit at the cool kid's table (John Campea) then to add insult to injury call anyone who disagrees a racist or sexist. Come on on man
>>111449277Studios are more and more focused on their political agenda and are happy as long as they're not losing money.
>>111448074this whole thread is cope, just stop being misogynists, do better
>>111448081that's my phone screen capture. feelsgoodman.jpg
>>111449330have prep(you'll need it getting dicked by jamal)
>>111450845I don't dispute the people giving it false positive reviews are wrong. It's not reasonable to believe Disney is engaged in this huge conspiracy simply because it's a convenient way to dismiss the movie's earnings. I don't like Disney and don't like Larson, but you look crazy for entertaining an idea without any reputable evidence.
>>111450749This is part of the equation too. It opened everywhere all at once so no negative word of mouth would hurt the opening weekend too much. Also all of the review embargoes and RT buying, they were afraid of a dud in regard to people not liking Brie Larson.
>disney didn't do this during their early shit movies, phase 2 shit movies>they do it in their biggest prime when everyone is watching capeshit like food and waterYeah, very beleievable
>>111450996I can only tell what I have witnessed personally. In retrospect for the sake of this conversation, I wish I did record my google hangouts and facetime sessions with my crew. All I can say is for sure that there is something rotten in Denmark with this whole thing, ONline shows almost pact. 5 minutes to showing they were ghost towns. I hope this breaks one day. But these guys are ruthless
>>111449426I would show up with a picture of amber herd and ask her to autograph it
>>111449330Hello Brie... is your fungus still thriving?
>>111449277They're desperate for audiences to like her since she is going to helm the next phase of Avengers movies. I think they know that a good majority of the audiences aren't really into the newcomer show up after one movie and defeat the villain that's been set up for a decade with other characters. But they know she's also an unlikable cunt on social media so they have to save face with ticket sales to make people think it's really good. Just like Black Panther.
>>111451109Or a picture of a TSA agent
>>111451084it's odd because they are taking a loss.Which is so at odds for what business is fundamentally about.This kind of reveals the lie that Disney isn't part of some global progressive agenda, because if they will cut their nose to spite their face and use force attrition with their own money to sell that lie that people want feminist propaganda, they really aren't an entertainment company anymore.Either the communists are so embedded into the fabric of the corporations, or the corporations are being controlled by a larger force.I tend to not think that much about conspiracy.
>>111451109>two guys behind himAre we so sure Jack wasn't running a crew of retarded half-breed paddy chavs after all?
>>111451112yup exactly. Disney knows about charisma they hired RDJ for christ sakes, They knew they made a bad investment but to save face did a blitz media campaign including the buy of journalist, strong-arming google and the review embargo on RT
what part of>FINNA >BE>SLAW>THEATER >SLICK >EMPTYdon't you trannies understand?
>>111451112Why didn't they just NDA her the fuck up and tell her to keep her trap shut and her shoes close-toed? Then everyone would be marching into CM without a whiff of malice.
>>111449277Yidsneys stock needs to avoid big dips in order to secure a good deal for Fox. A movie flopping isnt good for their stock, so pumping it up is probably more valuable within the context of the deal as it ultimately will save them money
>>111451176The screen actors guild bodyguards are not what they used to be.
>>111451156>commies in big businessI don't think it's ideological. All they can see is the possibility of getting a nice slice when power is centralised on a higher level.
>>111449500Do you also believe that 6 million jewish people, 5 million of which didnt exist in Europe, died during the holocaust?
>>111451156>Either the communists are so embedded into the fabric of the corporations, or the corporations are being controlled by a larger force.Half and half really. The elites at the helm of these corporations are acting beyond the profit motive. It's similar to the Rhodes-Milner Round Table of yesteryear. Once a bunch of elites have obtained more money than they could possibly spend, their thoughts drift towards shaping the culture to come. For Rhodes, it was taking control of universities and proselytizing British values to all of their colonies. For the elites in control of Disney, it's spreading the sjw/woke agenda.
>>111451281I used to think this too.. but you don't reduce profits unless you believe in the message itself. I guess you could make a case that it's just morale building for bigger films like end game.. but they can't manage this over a long period of time.
>>111451311Obviously. Of course.I just hope the backlash comes in time before civilization is ruined for good, if it isn't already.
>>111451156Other anon is right.They have so much money that they are beyond the profit motive.I don't think it's communists or some shadow conspiracy though.I think it's just filthy rich people realizing they have so much money that it's meaningless, and have moved their sights on acquiring intangibles and things people believe money can't buy instead.Instead of a demand-service oriented model, it's supply-ideology oriented. It's supply-side economics, only with ideology instead of products/services
>>111451156Yeah, Disney spearheads the Progressive Agenda. Look at their networks, The shows that air on their networks, The movies and the overt messages. Skrulls being Immigrants. Kree The Patriarchy. A heavy Anti Male Film. Now makes her the new face of a 2 billion dollar franchise for phase 4. Money and reputation are at stake. Star Wars for the first time in its history is not an anticipated juggernaut. The WB has already release two back to back Billion dollar movies, Their upcoming lineup looks pretty damn impressive while Disney is waiting on Endgame to plot its new course. The CW is going cosmic so all ground-based DC shows are gone as of next year crossover. Just to compete with Disney. This is all apart of the Culture War. Which means serious cash is on the line. Don't negate phony liberal outrage. Those people love to pound the keyboard in defense of social justice.
>>111451398right but.. that class of people are GENERALLY traditionalists and conservative. It makes sense for them to be that way to maintain their own power base. The police. The military. Family values. If they destroy that shit they weaken their own wealth... so it can't just be a boredom... it's a shift in mindset that is against their own interests.
>>111451413I guess we'll see if Episode 9 gets a similar snow job. They can't keep these paper trails of money hidden forever with the scrutiny that people put on movie finances.
>>111449498>donation>scamwho could've seen that coming
>>111451473A lot of the money spent was done in cash.
>>111451473I'm already counting on review snow job again. The least anticipated Star Wars next to Solo. Yeah they are going to shill hard for that one. The only good thing that may come from that is Kennedy being shown the door.

>>111449363Every single normie MCU fan I know, doesn't give a shit about Captain Marvel. They don't even know who she is, as they are millennials who grew up in the 90s, and Captain Marvel had lost her powers to Rogue. All of these normies are going to see End Game tho. So the theory that they did this to save End Game, doesn't make sense.
I was at the theater today and it was unusually empty. To be fair there was thunder so maybe that caused people to stay home.
>>111450119S L A W
My dad is the vicepresident of Marvel Studios and he said this movie is bound to surpass Black Panthier
>>111449614Depends on what week it is. Like 80% of the profits go to the studio in the first weekend a movie gets released but after that the percentage keeps going down. Theaters hate big openings because they get really busy but don't make much money.
>>111448074damn, are we uncovering a decade long conspiracy of movie studios tricking people into thinking movies are good by buying 25 fake tickets for every showing????I mean, if it works so well just imagine, a movie studio never having a single flop. Every disney film doing amazing in the box office, every Sony film regardless of critical reception having great BO numbers.....my god lads......
>>111451156>it's odd because they are taking a loss.>Which is so at odds for what business is fundamentally about.Only if you're incredibly short sighted and ignore other factors for no reason.Brands have value. Disney paid what, over 4 billion for the Star Wars franchise? So you realise that it's not a case of "if every Star Wars movie turns a profit, Disney has therefore turned a profit". That's fucking stupid, they paid 4 billion for the brand. After a slew of disappointing movies, do you still think that brand is worth 4 billion? Hell, they probably lowered the value of that brand by more than it cost to make one of their shit movies by making their shit movies. If they've lowered the value of that Brand to 3 billion, they've lost 1 billion dollars in simple terms.Thinking every film exists in a vaccuum to be judged in financial terms in isolation without taking into account the wider picture is simply retarded anon.
>>111453152Depends if people buy food. I've seen couples get their own separate big ass things of popcorn.
>>111448074>I asked whether or not these tickets were purchased in bulk, but that information isn’t availableAs much as I know Disney did buy tickets I don't believe this. Surely their servers have to communicate with one another constantly to insure tickets are not oversold or the same seat isn't taken considering you can either buy from Fandango or buy in person.
>>111448074>>111448081Reminder these same stories were being posted for BP too. Disney just won't stop.
>>111452677I'd rather just be right because it's true than full of dog shit thinking I know how the world works.
>>111453189Well dummy, if they do that for every fucking film next year that nobody cares about they will go bankrupt. You can't save the brand by lying forever.
>>111453197It's almost like a website that consistently reports fake stories from anonymous sources that always falls in line with /pol/tard conspiracy theories is making something up......
>>111451456Because they preach policies to useful idiots that bloat the workforce and take away any possible employee bargaining power, while also putting up barriers to small business, seperating the lower and higher classes into two well defined and immoble entities. And they do it by convincing those useful idiots that it's a moral issue and they're acting against the wealthy.
>>111453195Yeah theaters are in the popcorn business just as much as the movie business. That's why so many theaters are offering alcohol and actual food now.
>>111453223Right, if they did something else than something else would happen. Keep me updateds with the quality facts m80.
>>111448074disney is a publicely traded company which means they need to show their revenue and expenditure to the public. if they really bought tickets that would mean that this years profit is going to be much less then expected
>>111453235Do you always sound so snide to people who you agree with? Fucking trannies, I swear. I could say that niggers are the smartest "people" to ever grace this earth and you'd still complain about the post somehow being /pol/ related. Consider suicide.
>>111453247I've seen people with pizzas but not alcohol. Might not be allowed where I live.
>>111452914>its only okay when I downvoat
>>111453189They gained over 15 billion from star wars since the buyout, are you this retarded??
>>111449667if you believe an entire nation can turn into an assembly line of death rollercoasters, gas chambers, cages with bears and eagles eating live jews, and putting massive resources into these concentration camps that detracted from the war effort then its not too fucking silly to think a megacorporation can buy its own tckets you fucking spergo
>>111449363>If Captain Marvel is outed as a flop, less people will want to go see Endgame.Doubt it. I personally don't give a shit about CM being in Endgame since all the characters i care about already are in it.
>>111448074Men just can't accept us no matter how hard we try. Guess I have to put on my bad girl boots and keep winning.
>>111453742Yoi mean whore boots
>>111448143The target audience is nu-males and nonwhites
>>111448074>no actual theater managers cited>just second hand heresaycome on
>>111453742t. female (male)
>>111453758Yes! but not for you. incel
>>111453814you're not a big girl
>>111448074>>111448081haven't you realized yet that you can make up whatever you want, but people still won't give a crap about your incel sperging?Must be hard to realize how worthless your job was, now that the movie is going to make a billion and most of you will probably end their suffering in one way or another.
>>111449426>a woman served them food and drinkgood, I hope she was helping lots of white dudes.
>>111453742id lick her asshole if you know what i mean
>>111449500This happened in Brazil.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/may/15/nothing-to-lose-nada-a-perder-brazil-sold-out-empty-cinemas-universal-churchtl;dr this big protestant church (has millions of supporters) bought a lot of full sessions throughout Brazil, and no one showed up to watch the movie. It was a "success".(In this case, they were probably laundering money too)
>>111449671It is not outside their capabilities. It's well within the companies ability to organize and carry out. The problem is it would leave a significant trail that could be followed and could incriminate them. Disney may be huge, but don't underestimate their rivals. Why would Disney risk this? If this were true, NBC/Comcast/Universal would be using it against Disney. Hell, ALL the movie studios would team up against Disney over this. Even if Disney could hypothetically win a fight against the guilt of this they would not come out of it unharmed. We're talking government anti-trust laws, federal trade commission, wall street and blah blah blah. At the end of the day, no one wants to admit the truth. Families are going to see this movie in decent numbers. Captain Marvel has similar numbers to Minions. Process that in your heads. If Minions can make 1b, than yea, Disney can too.
>>111449277It's not about money. It's about the agenda and censorship. They may lose hundreds of millions by buying their own tickets but they effectively taken over Big Tech's search algorithm and RT's method of accepting user reviews. And it's also possible they they didn't pay for every empty seat. They probably have some people buy tickets as a donation or as a money laundering scheme.
>>111448081wow no pictures or purchase or anything, just anonymous anecdotes that everyone believes
>>111449277This. But not because they're afraid Endgame will lose hype; there's no chance of that. It's because Captain Marvel is basically the Iron Man of the MCU 2.0, and if it's a disaster then that's a huge problem for the next phase of the MCU.
>>111449277What's the point of this? It's like some kind of idea that people are followers or something.>>111451838But this is very plausible plus they don't want a failure in the franchise like solo. A film that people can point to and say look at this failure.
>>111449500It's simple really. They have companies that were created off the books with laundered money. They setup these companies as charity, social media influencer(shills/bots/trolls) and 3rd party review websites or ticket selling website. We all know Disney had several little companies that they financed or bought for decades. They even did this when they bought Maker studios to force Youtubers to become shills.
>>111453977>it’s another anon is convinced that everything is a Jewish conspiracy against the most oppressed class, the white man, episode
>>111449277Captain Marvel is very important movie for MCU, next chapter is relies solely on its success. News like “Captain Marvel is a flop” after such a long streak of hits would be devastating.
>>111454079It really doesn’t anon, it really doesn’t
>>111453985We're open to believing it. Obviously there is no proof yet..that's the difference between smart skeptics and faggot npcs.Open-minded.Now go claim your Disney bux
>>111454042He's got a lot more on his side than you do honestly. You can circle stroke to the idea of 'lol poor yt man' all you want, but there's only one group of people that are being told they're not allowed to have their own self-determination anymore.
>>111448081I am so glad am started this meme.
>>111449277Many of these huge companies have a lot of offshore money that they can't get in country. Apple for example:https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-01-17/apple-expects-38-billion-tax-bill-on-overseas-repatriated-cashThese companies have more money that you can imagine. Disney has a market cap of something like 130 billion dollars. Perhaps buying tickets is win win for them. Perhaps it gets money back in from overseas but also prevents the film from failing and soiling the marvel franchise. Perhaps it goes further than this even. Have you seen the clip of the U.S. senate enquiry where they talk about using hollywood to win the culture war against memes. Who knows what complex arrangements exist between the propaganda machines and the government. Perhaps disney gets some good tax incentives to make a piece of propaganda like this. This is all obviously wild speculation but it's not outside the realm of possibility.
>>111454084It's really weird that your response isn't even in the right tense.
>>111454120he's not a native english speaker
>>111453742Better still, try doing something well rather than doing a fart and being proud of it.
>>111454084Their whole plan was to inject this new super strong and sassy hero into endgame. It would be a disaster if everyone hated the character/this movie.
>>111453195Which is why Disney buying up tickets will piss off theaters so much. Ghosts don't buy popcorn and sodas. Disney meanwhile gets about 90% of the purchase price of opening weekend ticket sales back, so relatively speaking, it's not much of an expense especially if it's tax deductible. Much cheaper than running advertising and gets you more attention than the ads would have.
>>111454085Yeah anon because boot licking incels are known for being so open-minded lmao
>>111450671literally bugmen lol@chinks
>>111454158Local theater chucked 2 garbage bags full of popcorn into the bin on Sunday night.
>>111454170>as he licks the mouses taint
>>111453203>Reminder these same stories were being posted for BP too. Because they're fake stories.>Disney just won't stop.Won't stop making money because they're fake stories.
>>111449636No, you're wrong and also a retarded faggot.
>>111449614Nigga what. Theaters get maybe 2% of a ticket sale, all their money comes from concessions.
>>111449876That's blog post has nothing to do with that meme you shit sack.
>>111454170Using a hivemind Reddit term like incel to make your argument.>Suggesting you're not mentally compromised.Oh no no no no
>>111454191>not believing a ridiculous and obviously fake conspiracy theory means I'm sucking off the mousekek just accept the movie made money. I don't see why that's such a crazy notion.
>>111454170>boot licking incelsYou're an incel praising the house of mouse to win a rhetorical argument on a useless image board. You're not really in a position to be throwing that kind of heat, anon.
>>111454217>seething because someone used the term incelAnon just diet and exercise and have a semi-decent personality and someone will fuck you eventually.
>>111454225>"n-no ur the incel"Wow this is some riveting discourse m8. Too bad I have a girlfriend and have fucked plenty of women and therefore am not triggered that a so-somovie starring a women made a lot of money.

>>111454285You wouldn't be here if that were true, incel.
>>111454218i didnt say anything about that. you accused doubters of licking boots when its actually you who is licking bob igers asshole. stay mad.
>>111454217>"hivemind">calls anything he dislikes reddit like the rest of 4chanirony is dead
>>111454314NO, NO, I'M ONLY LICKING THE MOUSE TAINT TO OWN THE INCELS, ANON, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE IRONIC!
>>111454311The horror movie threads and nostalgic past waifu threads are kino. That's why I'm here.
So where can I watch this on a decent quality before Infinite Endgame at home?
>>111453806>t. female (male)So you mean a transvestite?
>>111448074We have reached peak cope.Anons, It's okay to be wrong about Marvel movies.
>>111454314>>111454327>>111454334Yikes you guys really got triggered over the boot licking comment. As if you guys are so open-minded as >>111454085 implied. So everyone who doesn't believe your idiotic conspiracy theory is a Disney ass licker now? That's pretty funny.
>>111454156>plan doesn’t work>oh wel we’ll trot out black panther to lead the MCU instead, job done
>>111454345Who do you think you're actually kidding?

>>111448081>anonymousWhy would I believe that?
>>111451156>t. brainlet who doesn't understand businessPeople in current year correlate boc office numbers with quality. If Disney are buying up all these tickets they are doing so to inflate the bix office numbers and as such get more people to watch the movie, especially since its a new character and fans might not wanna risk paying to see a movie fot a charcter they might not enjoy.Buisniesses often make risky investements that may or may not pay of, especially rich companies like Disney that can afford to take risks. Sometimes they invest in shit that may or may not bring in profits in several years. I know that this site is filled with larping libertarians who think they know how buisniess work and who thinks they fight against the "evil jews and communists" but you peoplr have a 12 year olds perception on buisniess and capitalism, jesus christ.
>>111454373Uh, yes. I think so.
>>111449904So, you think it's unethical for a government funded youth program to spend money on amusements for the youths? That's silly, and if you are comparing that to "ghost tickets," you are way, way off base

>>111454218captain marvel making more money than most marvel movies is in fact a crazy notion
>>111454213It has everything to do with that meme. Everything without proof is just an appeal to the hater's preconceptions.You know what has proof though? A sudden and instantaneous influx of +50k negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes one day, launching it from 17k up to 70k, which then fell back to 18k after the purge of fake spam.>"conspiracy theory reeeee">"I swear we didn't try to bomb this before it was was even out!"
>>111448074I am old. Not once in my life have I seen a theater employee come in while the movie is showing to count empty seats. An "anonymous source" said it though, so it HAS to be a fact that they actually did count seats.
>>111457735you're not supposed to see them
>>111457735Why would you watch an employee doing his job and not that movie?>I am oldAnd full of shit.
>>111449430Are you honestly retarded?

>>111458171Congratulations, you actually made me gag a little and I've been on boards since 2010.
>disney loses tons of money because film flops>Spend even more money to buy tickets so it doesn't look like it flopped>Buyer is some dude in a trench coat paying cash>Leaks are anonymous sourcesI think the mouse is done
>>111457735You don't need to come in and look at the empty seats you mongoloid, he can see if anyone's actually entering his theater. Retard.
>>111449500>Do you understand the fraud necessary to construct such a scheme? It would involve hundreds if not thousands of people. Consequently, litigation would be brought forward by shareholders if Colleges were found out. The risk is too great for a school like USC, UCLA, Yale and Texas. It makes zero sense since they can just continue making more shitty feminist classes if they have an agenda
>>111449500>Hundreds if not thousands of people.Hell. If you gave me 50m in an account and a few weeks to do it I'm sure I could do most of it myself.
>>111457502>>111458171>>111458422Why aren't other film makers suing Disney for unfair practices?
>>111458676This. Tickets were bought electronically and no one showed up. Wouldn't be surprised if most tickets were brought through a whole sale middle man.These are unfair business practices. Someone needs to sue Disney.
>>111458682Maybe because of all these assistant manager keeping their mouth shut
>>111458732The IRS then. There's illegality here somewhere. How and from where is what we need to know.
>>111458808Great! Let's assemble the teeeveee investigation unit! I know a couple of guys who worked on pizzagate and a dude from /x/ who has double-vision.I personally have a degree in under 300ko jpeg analysis and followed a course in infographic creation specialized in arrows and circles.Should we have matching uniforms?
>>111450102>Nowadays even shit movies have promotions that costs 300+ million, giving 50 million to buy your own tickets to boost opening weekend is pennies in comparison.THIS. For all the Discord Trannies shitting on the fact that Disney buying tickets makes no sense (to their dumb asses), even getting 50% of that money back still nets them incredibly cheap advertising. Look at how many articles came out praising their box office take. All normie-targeted advertising telling them to go see what everyone else is watching. People are dumb enough to fall for this marketing, and it makes more sense than buying more television ad time.
>>111450211>Disney has been around something like a 100 years. They're not going to risk the litigation and their name for a stupid marvel movie.No, Disney is smart enough to set up SHELLS like GoFundMes for little girls so there are LAYERS that won't directly tie back to Disney.Are you seriously so retarded that you don't understand how companies outsource?
>>111453848Hi Brie! Why are you so ugly??
>>111458977why are you so mad?
>>111459230>I made 10 threads today to cope with the crashing of my narrative but you seem madLoving every laugh

>>111457735you hand your ticket to the cashier... they know if you showed up... that's how they can give refunds if you didn't show up
>>111453286"Advertising Budget: $X"Shareholders do not demand strict breakdownsDisney does not go to the theater to buy their own tickets while wearing a Disney name tag, they outsource that shit to avoid getting caught.How dumb are you?
>>111448074Fucking BUSTED. I mean, bucking FUSTED. I mean, Fucking JUSTed.
>>111459345>haha i was just making fun of you! i wasnt seething! NO U lmaonever even made a thread about this movie ever
>>111449465considering that they made a piece of wood the center of the marvel universe after endgameno
>>111460114>It was merely an actweak
>>111449277Every movie now, as part of its marketing, goes "it's going so good, people love it so much we have a sequel in plans with this director who made this thing everyone loves, everything's going great, come see what the buzz is about"Now it's a bigger deal since it's the face of the marvel 2.0 they're trying to amp up and plus gay politics shitAlso they probably launder through tax detuction charity shit
>>111449465They will see what comes after it too. After the 20th movie this has entered TVs series mentality. Some episodes of TNG were good, some of them were bad, people still watched it every week. It would have to be consistently shit for several consecutive movies in order for people to start slowly leaking out.
>>111449277>71% drop Monday>38% drop Tuesday >41% drop WednesdayI wonder what the "benefit" is.
>>111450211>They're not going to risk the litigation and their name for a stupid marvel movie.Is that actually a risk to Disney? Their legal strategies are not “be right” so much as “outspend fucking everyone trying to sue until they give up.”
What's the fraud??
>>111448074>>We spoke with a movie theater manager who asked for anonymity.Yeah... Fake news.

>>111449500and you think these people are working at Disney? they just contract some time workers over some other company which is contracted by some other dude, none of these people know exactly what they are doing
>>111461274Exactly. They got a battalion of lawyers just waiting to make the case that this is just “ creative marketing.”

>>111463963resting bitch facedw, i only learned this yesterday
>>111464005This. RDJ was Paramount and Marvel Studios.
CM is a killer
>>111449363Worse, and far bigger scale. This sets the precedent for aggressive social engineering and blatant political propaganda in modern entertainment. This has to appear to succeed, at all costs, to warrant further expansion of all media into similar territory. Humanity is at war with corporate oligarchs ran by psychopaths who’s lack of morality would put your run of the mill murderer or rapist to shame. We’re in an information war and the truth needs to be controlled and manipulated for them to win.
>>111464793Literally nothing happened except a few fringe "journalist" (bloggers) wrote that "THE TROLLS WON'T WIN!" but they forgot that 'the trolls' were just people voting on rotten tomatoes for a few seconds and then went to do something else with their day. Nobody was frothing at the mouth except toe cheese herself
