Chloe Zhao’s Eternals currently has a score of 65% on Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it Marvel Studios’ lowest ever.
Marvel Studios has been on an incredible run in the last decade, and none of their films falling to rotten status on Rotten Tomatoes is a testament to that. However, Eternals might be the studio’s most divisive film to date, as reviews started to pour in after the embargo lifted earlier this week.
On Rotten Tomatoes, Eternals is currently sitting at 65% with 84 reviews. While the film is still fresh, Eternals‘ score makes it the lowest-rated Marvel Studios film on the website. Thor: The Dark World, which many already consider a weak point of the MCU, is one percentage point ahead of Eternals with 66%.
Here is the synopsis for Eternals:
“The story takes place across two time periods. One storyline is set in the past when they operated as a formidable team and a close family unit. The second storyline is in the present, when the group has fractured and split apart, content to live among humans, hiding in plain sight. The prevailing threat of the Deviants, which once again threatens the existence of mankind, means the Eternals need to put their differences aside and regroup.”
Chloe Zhao directed Eternals from a script she co-wrote with Patrick Burleigh, Kaz Firpo, and Ryan Firpo. The cast of the Marvel Studios project includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
Eternals will hit theaters on November 5, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
