Why on Earth would a studio re-release a box office flop with a 17% Rotten Tomatoes score? Memes.
Upon its release, Morbius took off for all the wrong reasons. By all accounts, the movie is awful. So awful in fact, that it has been memed into oblivion. While most people saw the irony in these memes, Sony did not.
They thought, “Hey, why not capitalize on all of the kids talking about our movie and do a re-release?”
For obvious reasons, mainly the movie being horrible, it flopped again.
Here are the memes Sony probably should have read a little more into before re-releasing Morbius to the masses!
I don’t think this was actually a line in the movie.
A new twist on an old favorite.
You never work a day in your life if you love what you do.
Finally, something we can agree on!
You can’t argue with the numbers.
The Power Rangers are punching the air right now.
Works every time.
I thought this was America.
No one man should have all that power.
One to rule them all.
I never knew I needed this crossover.
Is someone cutting onions in here?
The Morbius Cinematic Universe.
There’s no way.
You don’t want to miss it.
Where can I get these?
One Morb is all it takes.
Stop objectifying him.
This is a steal.
Where do I sign up?
You can’t argue with the facts.
Mr. Morb, I don’t feel so good.
