      craziest part is the concept always goes to "outgrowing" the imaginary friend when the entire fun is the adventures you go on with them. Now it's always "you have to let them go and what happens to them after that" or "are they real and can other people see them?" ala the Happy the Unicorn one.
      I liked that moment in Drop Dead Fred where it was hinted at that Imaginary Friends are the only ones who can see other imaginary friends but to their own friend they look crazy talking to absolutely nobody.

      They did the issue is it feels so forgettable like you're watching a commercial for Insurance or something. It has all the impact of a Liberty Mutual or Experien ad. It doesn't help that Reynolds did corsspromotion with his cheapo phone service.

    Box office for If was revised to $35 million on good word of mouth, so it opened within reasonable range of estimates. It's also a much better opening than Wish.

                Out of all of those names, Nic Cage is the only one who has actually played a wide variety of characters. It's only in recent years that he's been typecast a lot because of his meme status. The rest are just simply not actors, which means any movie they get put in is just a vanity project or some studio contract frickery.

    I like to think during the pandemic Krasinsk caught up with Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends with his kids, went "oh frick wait" and then just went line by line with lawyers to see if they owed anything to Cartoon Network.

      This. The reality is that no child ever wanted to have a bunch of keys jangled in their face alongside a cutesy story. Kids actually care about things like plot and characters, you can't just pay a lot of money for dreck and expect it to make money just because it is "a family film". If kids don't like what they see, they won't ask their parents to take it to it.

    It's just not an appealing film. It's certainly not the kind of huge hype machine that can actually get people to go to the theater.

    Deadpool and Wolverine will do well because people will be willing to go to the the theater to see that, but why would people do that for IF when they know it'll be on streaming in a month or two?

    If you look at the numbers in your own image this is barely a fail. If all their fails were this bad they would probably be making money because it would be easy for the successes to cover the price of the fails.

    It costs between $15 and $20 to see a movie in my city. The cost has pushed me and I'm sure others to only see stuff we really want to go see, anything I'm even a little bit skeptical of enjoying I wait until I can "stream" (pirate). Back in the day when it could take 6+ months for movies to get a physical or digital release and it cost $7-$10 to see a movie (and I was only making 20% less than I am now) I was more willing to 'risk' seeing something that might just be "ok".

    Even ignoring the obvious parallels to Foster's, the whole setup, tone, humor, presentation, etc all feel formulaic, safe, and boring. It's a movie you feel like you've already seen before you've ever seen it. General audiences have zero interest, even if you have Ryan Reynolds phone in another generic Ryan Reynolds performance and put him on all the promotional material.

    Studios need to rethink their strategy after opening the pandora's box of theater movies at-home on streaming services, and releasing subpar shit that would be originally be streaming exclusive in theaters is not the way to do it. Honestly the theater model needs to be revamped, I refuse to go anymore after having to wait in concessions for tickets, be next to some teens making out while sick, have some rattling A/C unit or faulty projector ruin the movie, etc. Instead of flailing to make a dying business work try something different.
