Frauds all the way down

Disney is not only replacing canon in its ongoing brand destruction, it’s replacing the need for customers:

New reports of empty theaters for Captain Marvel’s weekend showings are the latest in the movie’s ongoing controversy. A number of Twitter users indicated there were empty seats at a number of Captain Marvel showings over the weekend.

We spoke with a movie theater manager who asked for anonymity. He told us they had “exactly 25 no shows for every showing of Captain Marvel on Thursday through Saturday.”

The manager told us this was definitely abnormal, “It’s definitely not normal. People usually show up when they pay for tickets…I’m not sure what it is, we’ve seen big groups not show up before, but they get refunds.”

I asked whether or not these tickets were purchased in bulk, but that information isn’t available, “I’m not sure if they were bought all at once because Fandango doesn’t give us that information, but exactly 25 no shows for every show is probably statistically impossible.”

The manager would add, “I would say it’s someone trying to make the ticket sales look better than they really were.”

He would also indicate he saw significant drop offs in ticket sales from Sunday at his theater, “Sunday for Captain Marvel wasn’t good and Monday and Tuesday were terrible. They were like a 75{e08cad746da4649304cc119361c7d8e2ee7ced73b617f6c7db2262986ac851da} drop off from Sunday.”

This is how the corporate cancer known as SJW metastasizes. Once it devours one aspect of the business, the need to protect the narrative requires devouring another aspect of it.

Compare the first five days of Black Panther to Captain Marvel.
