Saturday’s earnings haven’t been revealed at the time of writing, but the odds aren’t entirely in her favor. All those jokes were just about an idea Morbius Instead of the movie itself, something Sony learned the hard way. they Trying to get into the joke not only backfired, it blew up in such a way that even Michael Bay found himself admiring the utterly dumb spectacle of it all.
thing about him Morbius And his rise to the meme is that it all took off because no one had much faith in the movie at first.
