"Vast emptiness of cinemas the world over"? Well at least you're not engaging in hyperbole.No it wouldn't. It merely accounts for SOME people not attending. Those that couldn't afford the few quid that the ticket cost...and THAT'S ALL.
It does not account for, in any way, the vast emptiness of cinemas the world over for 'Solo'.
People didn't go, largely, because they didn't want to go. It was something they could sit out and wait for on Netflix, or blu.
'Solo' was a mediocre film, that was a bad idea from the start, as evidenced by the muted reaction when it was announced, which received a less than stellar audience attendance, because it wasn't something that people were willing to go and see in the cinema in any great numbers.
It has nothing to do with "hate". But feel free to engage in hyperbole, if you wish.
