  2. It won't stay there. It'll move to December, as will Han Solo (even with December 2018 now more crowded).
  3. There's alot of competition, none of it direct but still.
  4. You became an admin. Congrats.
  5. What a packed month! 1.Logan 2.Kong 3.BatB, 4.Chips/Life/Power Rangers, 5.Ghost in the Shell
  6. Who needs a long range forecast, that's what we're here for. Most of us are box-office prognosticators. In fact has referenced our predictions in their review. $220m
  7. If there was ever a worldwide apocalypse and civilization had to rebuild, the first movies would like that sock puppet show. :-D
  8. " With “The Hunger Games” franchise coming to a close next month, Jennifer Lawrence has set her sights on a project with one of Hollywood’s top helmers. " Darren is one of Hollywood's top helmers?? No way.'re right. Not everyone has the privilege of being called a 'top helmer' with only two films barely above $100m.
  9. This looks Fantastic Four bad. My predicted RT score is 14%
  10. I'm not tempering my expectations of the movie's quality, I'm tempering my box-office expectations. $70-80m despite rave reviews.
  11. I hope Shack over-performs. Great book.
  12. Interesting. Thank you. Studios only get 25% of every dollar earned in China (on average). That sucks. On a related note, do you want to help me write up a petition for to NOT monetize parts of BoxofficeMojo? There are no overt statements to suggest this will be the case but that BOM survey gave me a sinking feeling. Of course they could be planning to shed/eliminate it altogether.
  13. @Barnack 130 * 0.53 + 200 * .4 + 70 * .25 Where did you get this ratio from? Studio take home share from grosses, domestic / international (outside of China) / international (China)?
