I watched the commercial for the Artemis Fowl movie.

So, for those who don’t know, this movie is adapted from one of my absolute favorite book series. In fact, it’s a series I can directly correlate to my current love of writing. 

I remember 10-12 years ago, getting a new book, and a sticker on it, saying it would become a major motion picture. I’ve honestly been waiting for this movie for over ten years. I love these books. Adore them. They’re just... well here’s the problems with the commercial.

1) Artemis Fowl was the VILLIAN. He became a hero through a huge redemption arc. You portray him from the very commercial as a more heroic character that acts like a villian, but is a good guy all along. He explicitly was bad and became good. Don’t get me started on the line from Holly. 

2) he was Not Able to even get on a moving platform without help. It was adorably incompetent. He definitely couldn’t do kendo.

3) the plot portrayed in the commercial is quite literally Not what took place in the books. It’s far closer to the opposite.

4) this is going to end up as big of a failure as Percy Jackson, The Last Airbender, or Eragon.

5) if you’re smart and looking Long-term with this, you’d take this advice. If you change it, you’d be able to make a series. What you have now, is a one-and-done and infuriates those who have actually read the books. 

What we ask is simple: follow the plot outlined in the story. Make a commercial that reflects that. Make a movie that reflects that. The reason Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games were both so successful and became movie series that paid out massive dividends over time was BECAUSE they stuck to the story outlined in the books, mostly. 

This does not do that from what I can tell in its present state. In any way, shape or form. So please, for the love of god, fix it. 

attached is the link to said terrible commercial. Thanks, and good day.
