  1. It is not that hard to imagine. People are so ready to use this "Avenger Effect" or that "MCEU Effect" but nobody seems to use that "BvS Effect" or that "MoS Effect"
  2. Not so bullish on this one. Not saying it will be a bad movie but it looks to be too cerebral for GA. Prometheus opened big because of the promise of Xenomorphs. When GA realised Prometheus is about something else, they dumped it. $100M is closer to what 2049 can do.
  3. War of the Planet of The Apes | July 14,2017

    I think the word "War" is a major deterrent for moviegoers, even for fans of the first 2. Rise is about escape and Dawn is about struggle. War implies active participation in aggressive behaviour. Nobody likes a warring ape clan, Dawn is against that idea. And War against humans, even though it is "bad" humans, make for a rather dark & depressing story for GA and casual fans looking for fun & lighter fares.

    Don't think
  5. Transformers: The Last Knight (June 23, 2017)

    Brazil, Mexico, Spain & Japan will add another $40M to $50M Current OS+Domestic will add another $50M. Total: $600M+ WW Not as much as most would expect but this franchise seems to be slowed down by DM3, Spider-Man 6, Pirates 5. And Dunkirk is coming and that would rule European box office.
  6. Wonder Woman is the first major female superhero movie and a new interpretation of a pretty popular Comic Book character. One would expect a high curiosity factor, a pent up demand for it. Spider-Man, on the other hand, has been rebooted 10,000 times and it is the same awkward teenager routine - although Holland does the best version of it. Throw in RDJ factor, the movie has that mini Avengers effect. I am very interested with how Fox is going to push their tired X-Men movies with the Dark Phoenix saga (they should do the Fall of Mutants storyline, love that one as a kid). Milk it until the sacred cow is dry. Deadpool & Logan to the rescue. I predict the studios are going to the stand-alone mode again. Matt Reeves' Batman looks to be disconnected from the DCEU. Deadpool is pretty much on his own. Look at how Fox did with Logan, got great critical acceptance and still win the popular votes. Stand-alone SH movies should be the new trend from now on when The Avengers and Justice League have run their course like the X-Men did. Or maybe do character-centric Trilogy/Serials like Planet Hulk, or the afore-mentioned The Fall of the Mutants, Batman's Killing Joke or Arkham Asylum or The Cult, Captain America's new Hydra/Secret Empire story with emphasis on character arc and close-ended resolution. I would love a stand-alone Wolverine vs Hulk movie.
  7. Last weekend global gross $5M so it can do $10M Ex-Japan. To hit $400M, Japan needs to do just $5M. Mummy will do more than Pacific Rim & Prometheus WW-wise. That Tom Cruise factor. Still disappointing because of the well-known property.
  8. Cars 3, DM3, Spider-Man 6, TF5 --- Jesus, they are gonna kill each other, what a bloody mess!
