Most exciting weekend of the year right here bro.

Is what we might say if this was the weekend Last Jedi was coming out. Or maybe GotG 2. Or Spider-Man or Thor: Ragnarok or Furious 8 or Wonder Woman or, heck, even like Despicable Me 3 or Pirates of the Caribbean or like 20 other at least arguably interesting openers.

 

But its not.

Overall, it’s expected to be a ho-hum box office weekend and likely down from a year ago when The Huntsman: Winter’s War opened all to itself and grabbed $19.5M.

 

We've come to the point where Huntsman: Winter's War is viewed in a positive light.  SAD.

I know.

 

With a weekend like this, I figured we all needed to pitch in and help.

 

I'm thinking I should start a huge flamewar with someone just to get this thread to page 3.

That rainbow-hued fake-coffee-drinking bastard said WHAT about my mom!?!?!

 

Oh, it is ON!

F8 did 4.5 Thu. If it follows FSS % of F7 in the 2nd weekend it will do 32.5 (-67%).

65% drop for 35 is the best case scenario it seems, but for that it will need a 140-145% Fri bump opposed to F7's 130%.

Add Snapchat to the list of social media for movie marketing. Just saw a quick "Split now on Bluray" ad on there after watching someones snap.

*this thread will not get to 20 pages*

 

Not if I can help it, I just start posting random shit to up the page count. But then my like ratio would suck :sadben:

Saw Unforgettable today. Eh. Falls into that trap where it tries to serve up both drama and trashy thrills and the result is like two different movies neither of which accomplishes much. Should have either kept working on the script until it became legitimate dramatic material (the seeds are definitely there) or gone straight for the glorious delirium of The Boy Next Door, alas the end result is neither here nor there.

If Fate of Frious drops more than 65% domestic and more than 70% in China ( like some are predicting ), there will be enough meltdowns for 40 pages, at least. ;)
