    It's a little yes and no. If the resources were limited then the movies would eat into each other's profit, but the estimations for all of them put together still puts them below The Last Jedi and Jumani's box office runs (This year's Infinity War crossed 2B at box office). So some extra money is available, but people aren't willing to see any of these movies. To an extent they are stealing profit from each other, but I think the biggest issue is that not many people are really interested.

    Bumblebee also has a poor social traffic compared to other properties. It's not really better than TLK.

    Box Office: 'Aquaman,' 'Mary Poppins' And 'Bumblebee' May Gross Less Than Just 'The Last Jedi'

    Yep, this is extremely crucial. Even though the sentiment is much more positive than TLK, the fact remains that what sentiment there is is very little compared to Aquaman or Mary Poppins.

    Hopefully, it does well, the little Bee that could. Even if it's early with the reviews, congrats to the film for what its earned so far.

    Social traffic do was ant mean anything with this movie. Remember half the audience will be kids, most kids dont have social media accounts. I think bumblebee will beat out mary Poppins, might come close to aquaman, but it will outlast them with great word of mouth

    Do you think this is what online sentiment entails? It's not. It takes into account social media websites, yes (and you are extremely naive if you think kids don't have accounts on those), but YouTube views, website visits, etc. And I'd bet every if not the supermajority of kids in Bumblebee’s target demographics watches copious amounts of YouTube/general web browsing. In these qualia, Aquaman and Poppins is much higher. It's not an argument, it's just numbers.
    Plausible.
    Heck no. Aquaman is going to $1B or close to it, just seeing what it's done overseas.
    What do you mean by "outlast"? In the collective consciousness? Or at the box office? Because I'm pretty sure that Bumblebee is already planned to end its theatrical release in a shorter period of time than Aquaman, so…

    "Bumblebee exudes some of the tediousness of a reformed sinner who decries hedonism, trying hard to convince us that it now believes in something." Another left wing SJW that didn't like the film

    So he talks about how he enjoys the middle of the film as it did not have any action sequences, and then:
    "Until Cena and the Army, along with two killer Decepticons (voiced by Angela Bassett and Justin Theroux), show up. Robo torture, MMA-style ‘bot-to-‘bot battles (spin kick, body stomp), car chases and massive explosions ensue. It is, after all, still a “Transformers” movie.

    And with Christmas at hand, there are “Transformer” toys to be sold. Ladies and gentlemen, start your cash registers."

    Yes Mr. Reviewer, I'm sorry that you think a Transformers film, a franchise built on two warring factions, should have no war at all.

    Yeah, this is one of the lesser in depth reviews. Like I'm fine with negative reviews. Many of the negative views of BB so far I can understand. But this review didn't really shed light on why they don't like the movie besides "it has action in it."

    I wish they would elaborate on what they mean by "it's not meaningfully different than" the other films.

    You know what's funny?

    I wanted to know what Peter Travers from Rolling Stone would say for this film given that he gives Transformers movies 0/4 stars like all the time.

    Someone else wrote that review for him on Rolling Stone leaving me to wonder about what he could say for this film.

    Didn't he give Bumblebee 3 stars out of 5?

    It's not him. That's what I said. It's someone named David Fear.
