    It started off at 83% on RT, dropped to 71% but bounced back slightly to 73%.

    This might up around the 60% and 70% range which is really shocking.

On top of this each hero is lit by a different light source adding to the unreal, unconvincing appearance. The only credit I'll give, is that the light direction seem to be mostly true for the actors faces to the way their individual costumes are lit.

    Yeah, that’s some weirdly bad photoshop… I understand it could be hard to get everyone together for a photo shoot, but couldn’t they have at least shot everyone separately, but with the same lighting?

    There are too many Eternals movie posters that are better than that especially the IMAX one

    Yeah the reviews coming in aren't particularly great. Some of the non spoiler complaints that seem worrying is focusing on the wrong characters. A few saying its not exactly boring...
    This was always MCU biggest gamble and deep cut franchise so far. So we will see what happens.

    I think it's a big ask to manage 10 characters in the very first movie. Remains to be seen how it turns out when I finally get to see it, but that was always my worry going in.

    I'm expecting a few to get culled by the end of the movie. I think the only time we might see them actively active as a team is in the intro.

    I give Disney credit for trying with a franchise even most comic fans are barely aware of, and could generally care less about. Easy would have been expanding the Avengers franchise, or waiting a sec and casting a Disney version of the X-Men. Instead, we get a bunch of characters that are more or less a blank slate to both the comic reading (which, let's be honest, is almost an afterthought) and moviegoing audience. My usual complaint on Disney hero movies is that they all follow the GotG formula with action/humor/action/humor/drama/humor/etc./rinse/repeat. What little I've seen seems to be taking these characters seriously. Not sure that's the best way to go about things.

    I'd hate to think Marvel trying to take a more serious approach with a property would now be seen as the wrong move in light of the critical reception, but it seems like part of it is there's a disconnect within the film between being more serious and thought-provoking and the typical blockbuster with quips Marvel movie.
