Haven't horror movies consistently done really well in the Box Office despite the general downturn that's happened?

Is that Disney is good at making their films seem like “must see” events, that they’re perceived as a cultural staple.

Disney has really struggled with this the last few years though.

Oh man, please be good. I'm feeling the beginnings of some hype.

Edit: Okay so I actually read the article. Doesn't seem like Peter Jackson is actually going to be directing (at least not yet). And the first movie is about Gollum . Hype levels have plummeted. I have faith that they'll try to do their best but man I really hate how they've approached this franchise. More and more I think Christopher Tolkein was right when he talked about negative aspects about the mass commercialization of his father's work.

Hi Will, really liked the short film. How long does something like this take to create? I assume it starts with writing a script and then all the way to when it's ready for release.

Seems like another soulless Disney remake. I think some of the shine has rubbed off now and I really doubt it'll be nearly as profitable as the Lion King remake

Personally I don't think Anya Taylor-Joy is the best casting for a young Furiosa and the first trailer I saw didn't exactly raise my hopes. But I trust George Miller to do his best with this so I'm cautiously optimistic.

I'm trying to understand how post thumbnails work. It seems like other instances like lemmy.world will automatically pull relevant thumbnail images and store them locally:

thumbnails on lemmy.world

but for the same community on lemm.ee it doesn't:

no thumbnails on lemm.ee

No real problem if this isn't supported by lemm.ee, but I just want to confirm I'm not missing any settings on my end.

What are the differences between Lemmy and Mbin?

[-] darakan@lemm.ee 9 points 3 months ago

So basically, had a massive spike during the reddit blackout in July last year. Dropped down to half by November and has since shown fairly steady (if measured) growth. I think that's a good sign.

Hi all, when I first joined Lemmy (and the fediverse broadly) I was interested in having discussions around animated media. Unfortunately it seems all the existing communities were either dead, inactive, had a slightly different (usually narrower) scope, or some combination of the 3.

As such I've taken over an inactive Animation community and hope to help build something fun for all animation fans! Please take a look and subscribe if interested:
