  1. any guesses on who is trying to kill me?
  2. Jesus, that's an awful drop for FF8. 58% from a soft 3-day. I agree with @Heretic's view that GOTG2 will decrease from the first one in dollars.
  3. Uh... no it's not? The only superhero films between February and July are Avengers in May, Deadpool in July, and Ant Man in July.

YES
  5. Why on earth would ep 8 increase from ep 7?
  6. Won't really make a difference overall.
  7. Schools being off ain't the same as adults being off work.
  8. Is Friday/yesterday a holiday in the US?
  9. 50M, that guarantees 100M opening. Good.
  10. Rewatching Better Call Saul before I see the new season start... it's so fucking good. Just binged 12 episodes in 2 days.
  11. Damn, she has facial expressions? Forget what she said. She's a master thespian, to whom no one can compare.
  12. Yep, I can't stand them especially Rey. Doesn't help that Daisy Ridley can't act. At least oscar isaac does a decent job it's just the character is 0-dimensional. And the 2 of them are so uncharismatic. John Boyega is alright.
  13. Never imagined the day would come where I watch a trailer for a new Star Wars film and I'm not excited.
