Even The Morbius Memes Can’t Stop It From Flipping In Theaters (Again)

Morbius meme featuring Dr. Michael Morbius, played by Jared Leto, using what he calls

weeks after Morbius The internet’s dominant memes, Sony had a strange idea Bringing the living vampire Jared Leto back to over 1,000 theaters the end of the previous week. The PlayStation maker might have hoped so Morbius to reveal itself as the roomA cult classic in style here, but the supernatural, vampire flick bombed theaters again, taking in just $85,000 at the box office on Friday. In other words, on average, they were paid only $85 per theater in which they were shown. It sure is Not Morbin Time.

Morbius The original theatrical release was released back in April. Marvel-Sony joint follows Dr. Michael Morbius, a human biologist who accidentally becomes a vampire after trying to cure himself of a deadly disease. According to reviews, it was not a very good movie, and it certainly did not stun audiences, bringing in only $170 million worldwide. But thanks in part to the unauthorized, 24/7 from Twitch livestreaming Jared Leto’s hateful way of actingAnd the Morbius Resurrected as fun Morbin memes go online.

But since the memes are funny, they couldn’t save Morbius. according to ForbesOn Friday, the Jared Leto-led film grossed an additional $85,000, bringing its domestic gross to $73.6 million. Box Office Mojo, a site that tracks a movie’s performance as it travels through cinemas around the world, doesn’t have the June 3-6 weekend earnings yet, but notes Morbius Make $35,360 over Memorial Day WeekendBy that time it had shrunk to just 83 theaters. Pushing it back to 1,000 screens, Sony was probably relying on the idea that all the memes would drive people to theaters for hilarious satirical scenes, the kind where you laugh combined with how bad the movie was. But why do people rush to see? Morbius In theaters when it’s still broadcasting on Twitch, Immediately, Free? Hell, I won’t, not when I can see Top Gun: Maverick or something.

Because here’s the deal: Morbius not good. Not by a long shot. It is full of fight scenes that are almost impossible to follow, awesome linersand the lack of chemistry between lead actors Jared Leto and Matt Smith. The narrative itself is also full of enough plot holes and uninspiring visual effects that are immeasurable Morbius Memes can legitimately make it a fun watch. It’s not the movie itself, but the experience of watching it with other Twitch users, all of you united in the satire of cinematic catastrophe, that makes it agreeable, even fun. This is probably the best criticism I have for him Morbius.

Still, though Morbius Bombing not once but twice at the box office, a subset of viewers – or “Morbheads” as they call themselves – won’t stop craving for a sequel. there Jokey titles have appeared for a whole bunch of fantasy movies however it may constitute an entire MCU (Morbius cinematic universe), movies like Morbius: The Rise of Morbius And the 54: Morbius. some are Tweeting jokingly about counting down the days until Morbius 2 Out. (It’s not a sure thing, Incidentally). Even Jared Leto got into the fun meme – if we could call it that anymore.He posted himself a fake reading Morbius 2 script Written by award-winning (also fake) author Bartholomew Coppins. You may recognize this name from many of Dr. Seuss’ books.

I’m not happy Jared Leto jumped on the meme bandwagon. “It’s Morbin’s time” is a joke, a catchphrase meant to make fun of the acting-obsessed actor. We laugh at him, not with him, so it’s kind of weird seeing him meme with us. I still want to kinda Morbius 2. That way, hopefully the meme phrase will stick to him like a crimson letter when a living vampire turns out to beat up some goofs. That’s the only way I’m getting Morbin out for a sequel, if at all.
