After the divided critics and suffering “review bombing” on IMDB, ‘ Eternals ‘ is now also the worst-rated movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but on Rotten Tomatoes. At the time of writing this article, the film directed by Chloé Zhao had 60% positive reviews, which places it below ‘ Thor: The Dark World ‘ that until now, and with 66%, was the one it had the lowest rating of the franchise.
‘Eternals‘ has not even been released in theaters yet and does not reach commercial theaters until November 5 (3 in some European countries), so when you see it the numbers could change, although it does not seem that the thing is going to improve a lot. Starring Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kit Harington, and Kumail Nanjiani among others, ‘Eternals’ tells the story of a race of immortal beings, the Eternals, who have secretly lived on Earth for thousands of years. Created by entities called Celestials, they are tasked with reuniting and fighting together against a terrible threat looming over the planet: evil ones, the Deviants.
The almost spoiler
Probably thanks to the fact that it doesn’t have Tom Holland in its cast (just kidding), ‘Eternals’ is going to make it to theaters relatively spoiler-free, although the movie was almost spoiled by Salma Hayek at Comic-Con 2019. As revealed In ‘ The Graham Norton Show ‘, during the SDCC the actress began to ask Zhao questions out loud, very loud, and the director of ‘ Nomadland ‘ had to remind her that when it comes to Marvel, even the walls have ears: “She told me ‘You have to be very careful. Everyone knows that we are talking about the new Marvel movie, they could be [listening] through the walls’. She was serious.”Furthermore, Hayek could not even tell her friends that she had signed on for the film, not even Samuel L. Jackson with whom she starred in the ‘ The HItman’s wife bodyguard‘: “It was terrible, because when I was making that film I had sworn to keep the secret, and nobody knew it. And everyone was talking about their Marvel stuff, and Ryan Reynolds was asking Jackson things because now Deadpool is going to be in the MCU, ” Hayek told ComicBook .
