  1. When an embargo is lifted too early, provided that the reviews are good, it gives time for the "hype" to peak and then decline. Having it about 4 to 5 days before release seems like a good strategy.
  2. No. If he was only "displaying passion", I wouldn't care as much. But the man has been suspected of abusing state funds for his own interest. And he goes and pays his taxes in the US after using french public money to produce his crap.
  3. Because I'm French so I've known how obnoxious and full of himself the man is long before this article. He's a Michaell Bay, if even, who believes he's an Orson Welles.
  4. I hate Besson. If this movie can end his career, it will have done some good, regardless of reviews.

If actuals remain above ¥1 billion, it'll become the 37th film to debut above the milestone. The fifth Pirates film, based on estimates, matched the debut of its predecessor On Stranger Tides in terms of admissions (maybe slightly more), though with it opening on the 1st (a discount day) it probably will come in a bit lower in revenue. This will celebrate the fourth-consecutive film in the franchise to debut above the ¥1 billion mark if it stays above the mark, which is only beaten by the Harry Potter franchise (six films). Disney is surely happy with the films' success so far, as the opening should be good for a total around ¥7.5/8.0 billion (~$70 million), which could be enough to propel the film above the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office. >Shinobi's Country comes in second place, but it had an impressive opening of its own - one that could have exceeded ¥500 million ($4.5 million) depending on its unique situation. Since the 1st of the month (discount day) fell over a weekend, the avg. ticket prices will be lower than normal (while admissions are higher than normal), which complicates things enough; however, the film also received stage greetings on Saturday which messes with ticket prices even further... Either way, the film - directed by Yoshihiro Nakamura and based on the novel of the same name - performed very well and should have a nice run this summer. >Beauty and the Beast experienced its expected harsh drop this weekend, although the drop could have been worse. This won't be the end of its steep declines, unfortunately, since a number of theaters are dropping it next week, and the July 15-16 weekend is extremely crowded so it'll likely be cut almost entirely then. I'm expecting it'll eventually end its run with ~¥12.5 billion ($110 million) on ~8.8 million admissions. Incredibly impressive on multiple accounts.

  11. Saturday pre-sales down 52.3% for BATB. Looking to drop a bit better than Alice over the weekend, but not that much better. GOTG2 not breaking out, as expected.
  12. It has nothing to do with Disney. Detective Conan movies pretty much get the same multiplier every year (5-5.5) regardless of competition. Same thing for Shin-chan movies, Doraemon movies, Pokemon movies, etc.
  13. Yes, I know. Although technically the 1st of may isn't part of GW. But it's dropping on par with other similar movies like FF8, not better.
