THE THREAD OF THE FURIOUS: Friday #s (DHD, Pg 36) F8 45.5M, BB 6.6M, BATB 5.3M, Smurfs 2.9M, GIS 2.1M

1,544 posts in this topic

The time has come.

 

One of the most awaited blockbusters of the year has arrived, featuring a band of Oscar-winning performers and filmmakers. All eyes are on this film when we see its gross. I'm talking, of course, about SPARK: A SPACE TAIL.

I kid. I kid.

 

It's time for the eighth installment. The first without Paul Walker. The one with giant submarines. The one where Dom possibly betrays his family. With Imperator Furiosa as a nefarious computer hacker. The team-up of Helen Mirren, Jason Statham, and Vin Diesel at last. THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS has arrived. 

 

Will it hit $100m? What about China? How many people will like whore this weekend? Does anyone care about Gifted? Will The Boss Baby hold reigns over Belle again? Can The Smurfs save face? Will Kong do well enough so that I'm one step closer to revealing my darkest secret? How hilarious will GITS's drop be? Can The Lost City of Z shake up the limited box office ring? Will Tele finally learn to love La La Land? 

 

All these questions and more will be answered this weekend.

First, some ground rules.

 

 

DO NOT POST SPOILERS IN THIS THREADNOT EVEN SPOILERS UNDER SPOILER TAGS. This weekend, posting a spoiler can result in an immediate Box Office Discussion Forum ban. You will not be given a warning. This goes for all new releases usually but this is a huge weekend and we will not tolerate any spoilers what so ever for Fast and Furious. Basic impressions of the movie are allowed, as long as you don't go into specifics.

 

We're looking forward to a great weekend and we realize the over-excitement (or meltdowns) can cause the thread to go off topic. We will be allowing everyone to post freely as long as the off topic discussions don't go overboard. We all like talking about Finnish pizza, whether Ethan is back together with his girlfriend, and whether it's better to live in the icy and frigid Northeast or in balmy, sunny California, but please try your best to stick to box office numbers for the weekend. However, as long as discussions are film related, we'll be a bit more generous with off-topic enforcement. For everything else, the CC thread exists for good reason.

 

With that, have fun, don't be an a-hole, and get ready for an awesome weekend!

 

Family is forever. <3

In this family, our hairlines aren't very good, but we must remember that Tokyo Drift was the best, since Lucas Black is the only good actor of the series.  Fast and Furiousa, amiright?  also trailer needed more kashmir.
