    Tell me this is a joke:

    It even looks like something you'd see on deviantART.

    I dunno, I think it looks okay. Not exactly something I'd go and see in a theater, though. Maybe it'd work better as a TV or a DTV movie instead.

    Doesn't look like one to me.

    Why shouldn't it be theatrical? I would love for this to succeed, as American animated films released to theaters that are based on currently-airing cartoons (with the same production crew & voice cast) rarely do, unlike in Japan where anime-based films thrive. The Simpsons, South Park, Beavis & Butt-head, Rugrats, and SpongeBob are the only exceptions. The MLP movie released in the '80s was largely a flop, so hopefully this would would buck the trend (no pun intended).

    I see your point, and I take back what I said earlier. Still, I personally wouldn't go and see the MLP movie in theaters, mostly cause it would be kinda embarrassing being a 15 year old surrounded by little girls, LOL. But still, it doesn't look too bad (it's great to see another 2D animated Western film), and it beats the crap out of the Emoji Movie.

    Now, I would LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE to see a Steven Universe movie, but that's off-topic...

    Also, it looks miles better than the other Hasbro films released recently, especially Jem.

    I think it has a better chance at success because the only real competition it'll have is The Lego Ninjago Movie coming out a couple weeks before.

    Personally, I'd be more eager for Animal Crackers earlier that month...
    ...if they actually bother to deliver on that release date. Considering it was made outside the studio system (and despite an all-star cast), that seems unlikely.

    Despicable me came out on Friday saw on Saturday. I thought it was really good and funny (minions stole the show again without having a big a role) but I just don't think it was as good as the previous film

    Oh, I think you should see this:


    Who's willing to take bets it might be a dud at the box office?

    So it's MONSTER HOUSE, GNOMEO AND JULIET, CORALINE, and HOME ALONE somehow blended all into one movie?

    Apparently.

    Just when we thought John H. Williams gave up... oh wait, there was Get Squirrely before this.

    Vanguard's previous films were flops, so there's a strong chance this will be, too.

    Not to mention a small-time distributor giving it a "sort of" wide release of about 1000 theaters.

    Oh, and that's nothing compared to their next film Charming, i.e. a Shrek/Tangled wannabe several years too late.

    Do you remember which arcade it was? Since I'm going to AC next week. It had to be either Central Pier or Playcade, as that's the two arcades that show up when I search "Atlantic City arcade". If they still have them, I'm gonna try to win one. (Did you win anything that trip?) And this is coming from someone who LIKES SpongeBob!

    So...
    ...it appears that critics have trashed The Emoji Movie. Granted, I was expecting it to be bad...
    ...but not to get that level of negative reception.

    So The Emoji Movie was #2 at the box office and made back about half its $50 million budget, above Smurfs: The Lost Village but far below the Hotel Transylvania and Cloudy movies. It might turn a profit either way, unfortunately, but hopefully the marketing costs would be too high for that.

    We've also yet to hear from overseas grosses, which I'm dreading. :(
