  1. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are headed back to the big screen. http://herocomplex.latimes.com/movies/mighty-morphin-power-rangers-lionsgate-preps-big-screen-return/
  2. What are the most overrated films since January 2016?
  3. I don’t want to risk 80 people’s jobs just so I can say I have big nuts. - Danny Trejo on actors who do their own stunts instead of stuntmen (not saying I 100% agree with him)
  4. That little girl may grow up thinking she can be a wonder woman in her own way - that's great. awesome marketing.

  6. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    "I wonder how many posts I've written. Looks and sees that it's 7,999. Pretty cool!" I see Gerard's been training up for a 300 sequel.
  7. Please be careful Tom Cruise. Let stuntmen do your stunts. Let them do their jobs and have a job.
  8. And prayerfully, encourage more original movies (this film is based on a comic series but few people in the world know about them so.....:)
  9. That's like saying, if Robert Rodriguez puts together an enjoyable movie that will appeal to the masses in a way that compels them to take out their pocketbooks then the track record doesn't matter. Well, of course but we're speculating and all I have to go off of is a track record (both the financial performance and overall reception to his films). Half of the MCU directors had track records filled with smaller films yet their MCU movies have done well and are likely very profitable. I look forward to being pleasantly surprised.
  10. For what many expect will be one of the highest grossing movies in the history of film ($700m+), there doesn't seem to be a lot of buzz surrounding Episode 8. In fact, my spidey sense is up on Episode VIII although I can't pinpoint why. I had it even before the OK trailer (I say this as a huuuuge SW fan). Some possible reasons (I could be totally wrong and the hype is indeed, real): 1. Like Avatar, the cultural shockwaves from TFA didn't last long. The film didn't "stick" with people and TLJ suffers for it 2. Relatively tepid reaction to the first trailer 3. Less hype because it is a sequel to a movie that came out only 1.5 yrs ago at this point (Rogue One even sooner) 4. Somewhat related to #3 but possible franchise fatigue Hope my vague concerns are misplaced and we see a 90% RT score and $800m DOM
  11. Hope you're right. I look forward to getting a different result than Solaris and Strange Days (James Cameron produced films that he did not also direct).
  12. I wasn't talking about RR as a draw but his directing. His ability to make a successful profitable $200m movie. The bolded text is exactly the point. Besides Sin City, he doesn't have a track record of delivering on those things AND drawing in large mainstream audiences.
  13. Me too. The first one was "cute" and something new. Warner Bros. (and all the non-Disney studios) are furiously chomping at the bit for any new cash cows that they overindulged (two back to back spinoffs and a sequel in 2019), thinking that they had a lucrative tentpole for years to come. Ninjago will struggle to reach $150m dom
  14. Smaller/Medium films are going to be his niche for the foreseeable future I think. He's a fantastic actor....just not a big draw.
  15. Just noticed that as well. You beat me to the punch. In the hands of James Cameron, sure. Maybe. I think this will have to do well internationally to make a profit though Robert Rodriguez's track record is not looking good there either: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?view=Director&id=robertrodriguez.htm
  16. I've avoided nearly all images and sounds of this film. *fist pump* The over saturation from exposure to all the Spiderman: Homecoming trailers won't happen here. No siree. I can't wait!
  17. I think you're right. About $300m domestic. I sense a bit of franchise fatigue with the Spidey character although it will do leaps and bounds beyond what a TASM 3 would have done with the same cast and Sony.
  18. I love it! IIRC, there was a similar concept pitched in the early 2000s, I think, that never got off the ground. Hope they can pull it off.
  19. Preliminary ranking of the Spiderman movies (I haven't seen Homecoming) 1. S2 2. S1 3. Homecoming 4. TASM 1 5. S3 6. TASM 2
  20. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    I just got into listening to GOT podcasts. Some are retrospective (The Ringer) and others are contemporary (Game of Thrones The Podcast). Very enjoyable listens. I plan to rewatch the last four episodes of Episode Six before the S7 premier.
  21. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    Will there a Part 3 to this conversation thread when it reaches 100K posts?
  22. If this makes a profit, it will be internationally. Reminds me of Jupiter Ascending which made 75% of its money overseas. $135m DOM/$500m WW
  23. Blade runner under 300 WW club

    Absolutely IN. The vocal core fanbase will conceal what will be a tepid reception to the movie (no matter how good it is).
  24. Very enjoyable box-office run to track. It feels like the movie should be $450m by now with these small drops. Outside of maybe the Nolan movies, I don't recall seeing such legs on a superhero movie.
