Oh, oh! Twitter Is Not Happy With The Artemis Fowl Trailer
As soon as I got on Twitter I saw someone (*ahem* my friend Tania from LolaLambChops.com) had retweeted the Artemis Fowl trailer!
Boom. Great. Let me check this out I said. But before I could watch the trailer I saw the comments! And boy are people not happy!
Are there NO MILLENNIALS on these movie production & writing teams?
(The same way I guess the new Aladdin rubbed some folks the wrong way? Not me though because I LOVE the new Aladdin. Lol And if you still haven’t seen it yet, you should watch it on Disney Plus ASAP!)
However, we went from almost rioting about Sonic and his human teeth to now a movie about a book where the story has been completely flipped!
So like I said … are there no millennials on these teams? Is that the problem?
Because having a few millennials aka the people who grew up on these books and video games would easily solve any issues. A millennial could have told Paramount Pictures Sonic didn’t look right BEFORE the public did. And a millennial could have said that this Artemis Fowl Movie ain’t nothing like the book!
Which is sad because they were originally supposed to release this movie last year and pushed it to this year.
So what the hell were they doing with all those extra months?! Lol
The poster looks nice though! I guess. Lol And it’s totally giving me A Wrinkle In Time vibes. (Which now that I think about it, is that even a GOOD thing? Lol)
Here’s what folks on Twitter had to say about the Artemis Fowl trailer:

After watching the full trailer… I retract my excitement.
This movie is catfish Artemis Fowl.

This film is going to bomb. Calling it now

THIS IS WRONG. THAT’S NOT ARTEMIS. THAT’S NOT BUTLER. THAT’S NOT HOLLY.
HE’S NOT A HERO, HE’S AN ANTI-HERO AT BEST. WHY DID YOU NOT FOLLOW THE DAMN BOOK.

“I’ll totally be your inside agent!”
looks back at the book where artemis kidnaps her, isolates her, and murders other fae completely heartlessly
Y-yyyeah sure, Movie Holly……..

Someone clearly didn’t read the book. Artemis is supposed a cold, calculating criminal mastermind and Butler is basically Agent 47 from Hitman.
Also why are he and Holly acting like besties in this? He literally kidnaps her in the book.

But now I’m wondering …
How did Paramount Pictures manage to get Dora and the Lost City of Gold so right though? Because that movie was GOLDEN! Lol (Pun intended.) And I don’t think anyone expected the Dora movie to be any good. Lol
How was Dora a lame-ass kid show (yes she taught us Spanish but the shit was frustrating to watch okay lol) turned into such a great movie? But Sonic was almost a complete failure and now Artemis Fowl is a completely different story?
According to Twitter though … cause I ain’t even read the book. Lmaoooo
I think this was out BEFORE I realized I was a sci-fi fan! So I just never read it. Probably also judged it off of the title I’m not even gonna lie. I did that as a kid. Lmaoooo
So yeah, I’m not even sure if Twitter is rightfully mad cause I ain’t even read the book. But I DO know they mad as hell. Lol
Here are my thoughts on the Artemis Fowl trailer.
I think it’s okay! I’m a little worried that this is going to be a bit too scary for my daughter but since she turns 8 in a few days we’ll see! She’s been handling darker movies (like Frozen 2 and Toy Story 4) way better than before so she may be okay! I’ll show her the trailer when she gets in from school. Lol
I also loved the music in the trailer! I’m wondering if that’s going to be apart of the soundtrack? Because if so, I’m going to love the music in this!
But I agree with Twitter … despite not reading the book. Lol If that’s what this book was about, they should have kept the damn storyline! I mean … we read the book as kids, and Disney is leaning towards darker movies anyway, so they don’t have the “it’s supposed to be for kids” excuse!
What do YOU think about the Artemis fowl trailer?
And if you didn’t read the books either …
