Remember when kids movies weren't made for developmentally stunted 35 year olds?

The actual children watching are going to be developmentally stunted before they get a chance to develop!

Cruella, or Disney's Joker
Torn between thinking this is the worst thing ever and remembering that that's exactly how I felt when the actual Joker was first advertised.

Very good. :lol: Bonus points to the first critic who titles their review "101 Damnations"!

Trying to pretend I know nothing other than "I, Tonya follow-up starring Emma Stone and Paul Walter Hauser"

I'm not writing this off yet- based on Gillespie's ability to weave some subtler ideas into I, Tonya to the point where many audience members (including me, first round) missed them under the seemingly-bombastic details, I could see him doing something similar in a Disney film, especially one this superficially loud.

I believe this will actually be his third Disney film?

The trailer like a brazen attempt to plagiarize every DC Comics adaptation since Batman Returns. I, Tanya was a good picture, but this is a Disney picture, which means that the director is basically a corporate brand manager. Here, the brand is apparently Hot Topic. Not good.

I haven't seen the others, maybe he did some profound sneaky stuff there too and we're just all oblivious

If Paul Walter Hauser is in a Hot Topic-aestheticized movie, I'll still go see it. Emma Stone too.

Will this be released simultaneously to cinemas and Disney+?

I believe so, albeit for the D+ $30 price point that Mulan was at.
