The following is offered in the spirit of — hey, Constantin Films, I hope you’re paying attention and are doing something to correct this because if you don’t, there’s a chance that your Tarzan is going to be a disaster. There is still time to turn this around — plenty of time — but you’ve got to get focused and figure out what’s wrong and fix it.
What am I talking about?
I just noticed on YouTube that the trailer for Constantin Films motion capture “Tarzan” has 1,131 Dislikes, and 1,101 Likes. I’ve never seen a studio trailer that has anything remotely like an even number of “likes” and “dislikes”. This is very alarming and bad news for all of the long-suffering Edgar Rice Burroughs fans looking for a “win” after the release debacle of John Carter.
John Carter’s much criticized official trailer has 13 likes for every dislike. Hunger Games is 16/1, Prometheus 20/1, and the highest studio trailer I could find was Avengers at 50 likes for every dislike.
And — I debated whether or not to mention this, but why not — our John Carter Fan Trailer 1 has a ratio of 93 likes to every dislike . . . . just sayin’.
To actually have more dislikes than likes is frightening and alarming.
Is anyone at Constantin Films paying attention?
Here it is on MovieClipsTrailers. This is where it has 1131 “Dislikes” and 1101 “Likes”:
And here it is on the official Constantin Films Youtube Channel . . . . here it has 368 likes and 304 dislikes. Still really bad ratio.
