Zack Snyder Explains The Math Behind Rebel Moon’s Success Over Barbie: ‘I’m Not Delusional’

He believes the numbers simply show more people watched his movie.

Zack Snyder explains why he is sure ‘Rebel Moon’ was watched by more people than the popular ‘Barbie’ film.

Snyder told Gizmodo he’s just using numbers to show ‘Rebel Moon’s’ success, and he’s sticking by his calculations:

“Well, there are two things. One is I was just going by the numbers that I was given by Netflix. People are like, ‘Oh, well, Snyder’s crazy,’ but literally, I just am doing [math] with this, not anything else. If now we’re close to 100 million viewers, 100 million views times two is 200 million views… so, people are like, ‘Snyder’s delusional,’ and I am just like ‘I don’t know what to tell you.’”

Earlier this year, Snyder said ‘Rebel Moon’ attracted more viewers than ‘Barbie.’ Some people thought Snyder was wrong, but it seems he now shared a simple way to look at it.

He Also Has Another Explanation

Snyder also explained if he thinks movies on streaming services are better than the ones shown in theaters. He said that wasn’t what he meant before. He actually believes ‘Rebel Moon’ might had more people watching, but ‘Barbie’ made a bigger splash when it was shown in movie theaters:

“The cultural significance of ‘Barbie’ was happening when it was in the theaters. That’s when we all took a bite of the Barbie apple, and happily. And so my only point is that I think there is a theatrical zeitgeist. Even though maybe more people have eyes on something, the actual sort of cultural significance is dictated still by the theater.”

‘Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver’ is now available on Netflix. Snyder is ready to make up to four or six more films if Netflix agrees.
