Neo

What other movies since those 2 opened had a chance to do big numbers on that date?

What movie which opened on that date made the most in box office? And how many movies (excluding Oscar baits) which opened on that date made 100 M plus? Edited by kayumanggi

I don't think any other tentpole has opened there. Look at the 2nd wknd of May no movie since 1998's Deep Impact opened to over 40M til ST09. Now we have Dark Shadows and Pacific Rim on that date.

That is a Summer weekend Neo. Never in Marvel's history has it released a film on that (December) weekend.

Never has it released a movie in November, til Thor 2. Same example applies with the December release and May release.

Neo, THOR ll's date is a prime date. It has Thanksgiving to help it. Sure DR. STRANGE will be helped by the holiday weekdays but it could be eaten too since the usual big December releases are those which opens before and on Christmas weekends. The OW is very important.

So first they got the writers of Sahara and Conan, then they got Zak PennAny other shitty writers they want to hire? Maybe they'll let Ehren Kruger do a pass

He wrote an early script for Avengers. Whedon threw it out and started from scratch when he was hired

Zak Penn sucks. I hope he isn't writing the screenplay. Bleech.

Yeah was trying to spin it good, oh well lets see what happens. Maybe they can hire an A-list director to turn it around. My choices:Alfonso CuarónDarren AronofskyNeil MarshallTim BurtonJon Favreau

I do not think Alfonso Cuarón, Darren Aronofsky, Tim Burton or Jon Favreau will do it.

4 down one to go. :D I think Favreau would want to get back in the CB game as would Aronofsky with leaving Wolverine. Burton and Cuarón would bring some great visuals in.

Penn is a hack you hire to give a plot outline and then other, better writers come in to do all the hard work. Also see Don Payne with Thor 2.
