When a movie flops at the box office would you attribute it more to the movie or the promotional effort?

Depends... both Bladerunner movies were fantastic but were pulled down by their advertising.

So many movies with limited promotion have become blockbusters like A Quiet Place.

If the movie is really good, everyone will know within a few days, promotion or not.

Who knows? There are some BAD movies out there, but also “flops” that are later recognized as classics.

Promotion of course. Even if you go to the movie in the theaters and don't like it it still shows as a positive at the box office. When things flop people don't go to see them, and usually people don't go to see good movies because the promotions sucked ass.

I am a Big Star Wars fan
Solo was promoted to the hilt

Both, really.

Might be more the fault of promotion.

Nobody will see a film they don't know about.
Plenty of people will still watch solo.

I ask because I feel no one knows opening weekend if it's a good movie or not, just what the marketing team has wanted you to see.

It depends on the movie, for example Solo. Based on the Last Jedi I expected very little and honestly wasn’t going to spend money on seeing it at the theaters. I didn’t want my money supporting Kathleen Kennedy. Deadpool seemed more of the same and I didn’t care for Deadpool 1 so another one I didn’t support. DC movies have been a disaster and no amount of marketing will make me excited for them.

I think it’s a combination.
