As I write this on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, Morbius Currently sitting in 16% on Critical assembly site Rotten tomatoes. This means that with just over 200 reviews counting, 84% of Critics who watched the movie did not like it More than they loved it. (This critic included.) Which, to put it mildly, is not good. And it’s not particularly good when it’s a huge Hollywood movie A group in the same universe as a character His latest movie is approaching $2 billion worldwide.
and yet, Morbius He is Fine to the office box. It made nearly $40 million in its opening weekend in North America and double that internationally. Odds are that he will end up making a profit. But that doesn’t make it true The vast majority of critics did not Like your job is easier, and Director Daniel Espinosa talked about it In a new interview.
“Look, I have a lot of self-loathing so I have a lot of criticism for my work,” Director Life And the safe housemail said from the inside. “I always try to focus on being better. But I am also proud of what I do. There are parts in all my films that I am really proud of.” He did not explain what specific parts he was referring to, But he did tell some stories about how being a filmmaker doesn’t suit someone with thin skin.
“When I made my first feature film it was a small movie called Babylon diseaseEspinosa said. “I remember one day I went home on the subway and had a few drinks so I was a bit drunk. Someone pushed me onto the train and said, ‘I gotta tell you what’s wrong with the second scene in your feature,'” I said, ‘Okay, okay“.The point I make is that it is strange to make something that is so generic.”
General-BAnd also , Not always just seeing you. In another interview with Ibroxwhen asked about the amount of Morbius Espinosa said the following: “I think I do my best work if I get a lot of decision-making power. But in these films, they are big films that get a lot of people’s attention. They are different processes each time.” Perhaps this is the key. Sure, Espinosa’s name is included at the end of the movie As a director, but he probably feels the bad comments aren’t just his fault. In fact, they might actually serve as confirmation that he should have been given more control.
Morbius is now in theater.
