With the Captain Marvel "Want to See" score being questioned for Rotten Tomatoes, I decided to run a poll on our Facebook page that has around 700,000 followers.
While it is being claimed the Captain Marvel Rotten Tomatoes "Want to See" score is being manipulated by "morons," interestingly enough our own poll mirrors the score.
Within an hour of putting the poll up asking if fans are going to see the movie during opening weekend, over 1200 votes have been cast with 56% stating yes, and 44% stating no.
The Captain Marvel "Want to See" score at Rotten Tomatoes stands at a 55% of fans that want to see the movie, so we see the numbers are right in line.
The reason I asked if people are going to see the film opening weekend is also because the projections for the movie have been all over the place - from a high of $180 million in January to a low of $80 million following the recent comments from Brie Larson - so I wanted to get some feedback about what the box office numbers could be for the opening.
Obviously, this isn't a scientific poll or anything, and neither is Rotten Tomatoes, but it is rather interesting the numbers are basically the same. I also don't think "trolls" ran to my Facebook page within an hour of me posting it to "review bomb" it. The poll is open until Sunday night, so feel free to add your two cents. For the record, I voted, "Yes."
