    I'm curious...y'all just think it's weird because he's blue? Looks fine to me.
    Admittedly, I am an easy target for this film and will undoubtedly spend my money.

    Not because he is blue. He's supposed to blue. This is a live action remake of the animated version.
    I think he looks awful because it looks like awful animation for his character. His head looks wayyyy too disembodied. And if that is a glimpse of some of his best dialogue, bleah.
    When you watch the animated version, Genie is Genie! Not Robin Williams. This Genie? Ginormous smurfy Will Smith, and for the most part, only Will Smith.

    I'm with you. Not exactly sure what people expected him to look like, but I thought he was fine.

    I think it's the uncanny valley. He like Will Smith but not Will Smith. He also sounds exactly like Will Smith. It's just wrong. I think if they hadn't used his likeness or works be better.

    HA!! The internet agrees in the badness...

    For fans of the original concerned that Aladdin might not be able to pull off the translation to live-action, the new trailer did not inspire any hope. Smith is not the only problem the new footage features, but it remains the most prominent and the sheer strangeness of it highlights a problem the movie and Disney cannot ignore: The genie looks bad.

    Some of the Twitter responses I've read are hilarious.

    But what a fun concept and I will watch anything Danny Boyle makes. Man gets hit by bus, wakes up in a world where no one has heard of The Beatles so the man becomes a global superstar by playing Beatles songs.

    I wish they had gone with "Hey Dude" for the title!

    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    In the event something extremely unlikely occurs. I appeal to the mods to not allow this to happen.

    We attend about 1 movie a year. We may have to see this several hundred times to prevent the name change.

    No one... NO ONE... is more committed to marketing their films than Ryan Reynolds. He is a true hero!

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    It's almost as if he's trying to atone for The Green Lantern. Still a long way to go Ryan, a long long way.

    But 2010 is the year I think you recall. Despicable Me was just a few hundred thousand short of Shrek Forever After on labor day. A week or two later and DM had taken 5th place. But, it was too late as we had closed the contest down.
    In 2015, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation handily passed Pitch Perfect 2, but it was after the contest's cutoff, so Pitch Perfect 2 was credited as #5. In winter 2010, Little Fockers squeaked by Megamind, but it was after a cutoff date that was imposed well into the contest (after voting had occurred and the movies had come out), so Megamind was controversially credited as #5. I recall these because I came up on the short end of both cutoffs, losing out on a 5-for-5 finish in 2015. #NeverForget

    Do I detect some nervousness?

    Not even remotely.

    For folks who do not recall, Wander and I have a bet. Toy Story 4 must beat Detective Pikachu by $200 mil in total boxoffice. If Pikachu is within $200 mil, I have to change my avatar to a Pikchu for a week and will post many messages praising Wander's brilliance. If TS4 makes $200+ mil more, then Wander will have a Toy Story logo for a week and will spend his time professing to my genius.

    I'm thinking this guy would make a fine avatar:

    Interesting: Rotten Tomatoes has disabled the "want to see" section of its site. This comes in the wake of a lot of negative comments left about Captain Marvel as well as a number of articles about said comments. In light of Solo's flop last year, I'm now curious to see how Captain Marvel does at the box office to see if there's anything to this or if it was just a bunch of trolls/bots/etc.

    Are there really that many insecure men that are threatened by the success of a movie about an extremely powerful female superhero? SMH.

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Just sad.

    Of course not. But there are always, out of a field of hundreds of millions, some people with a lot of time on their hands and a willingness to troll.
