The movie is review-proof, for gods' sake. Relax.
Maybe, maybe not. I am sure it will do a huge opening weekend but if the reviews are bad and people don't like it, then word of mouth could make it under perform.
Yes, which means it's review-proof.

It's going to do a huge opening weekend. This is because the reviews don't matter.

If people don't like it and give it poor WOM, then it could under-perform.

You know what the correlation between reviews and WOM is?


Star Trek Into Darkness had 87% Fresh and has made 380 million, give or take, worldwide.

Fast & Furious 6 had only 71% Fresh and currently has made 589 million worldwide, with a week less in theaters thus far.
I see what you're saying. The critics may not be Kryptonite to this movie but word of mouth may do some damage if the fans do not like it also.
