  1. I think it will need Japan to go completely nuts to beat DH2. It can happen (Frozen).
  2. Atomic Blonde isn't low at all. Its reviews from SXSW are worse than they should be and the hype for trailer isn't quite in the same ballpark as the first John Wick trailer. Theron also has a mixed box office record as an action heroine. The movie is with Focus Features and not Universal pictures so that's also a strike against it.
  3. IMO, BATB is one of the very few Hollywood movies these days with the potential to make $100 million + from Japan.
  4. $1 billion is a lock with so many markets still to open.
  5. It would've passed La La Land's total in just 3 days with Josh Gad playing Belle. Emma Watson has been in a billion dollar movie before but she hasn't come anywhere close to winning an Oscar. She should fire the agent who convinced her to pick BATB over LLL.
  6. I feel sorry for Power Rangers. You don't want to open your movie the week after a $165 million opener.
  7. Logan will probably do $11 million + today. Deadline always underestimates holdovers for some reason.
  8. At this rate BATB will be at $5 million by Monday evening.
  9. It is a 4 quadrant movie but I think it will have 60/40 female/male split like The Hunger Games movies. Even Harry Potter skewed more female than male if I am not mistaken.
  10. BATB will be huge but I am not sure if a Marvel movie is a good comparison. Marvel's presales used to be terrible until about 2015 and it is possible that BATB is behaving more like a YA movie ( large tween/teen female participation) than a regular Disney family movie. That's not to say $180 million + isn't possible but $150 million seems like a more reasonable number for now.
  11. Yeah, it is doing $100k per day now. It will probably be over $4 million by release week Monday.
  12. Visually impressive ? They must have done a good job of hiding that in the trailers I guess.
  13. It isn't breaking any new grounds but this trailer is so much better and interesting than the last one.
  14. BATB's presales are incredible. It is tough to factor them in and imagine an OW under $150 million.
  15. It would've been a million times better if he was seen on Alita set with Avatar T-shirts. I guess I don't have any confidence in Robert Rodriguez.
