Probably not great, they have their own version "Super Sentai" still cranking out the movies. 

Okay. I knew about Super Sentai so that's why I was curious. What about Ghost in the Shell and BATB?

I think Corpse has been saying on KJ that he thinks BATB has a shot at being the biggest movie this year, and that GITS probably won't be that big a deal.

Am I looking at this right? Seems Kong might do over 2m USD opening day. 4m opening weekend wouldn't be so bad for it.

What's wrong with a Non-Disney film breaking out in Japan?

 

They deserves some coins as well, not just Disney, lol.

Moana on Rotten Tomatoes : 95%

The best movie should win, that's all :)

True.... but remember: just because Moana is the better-received movie....does not mean it's the only well-received movie. Sing & The Secret Life of Pets got good reception as well. 🙂

 

(P.S. Not counting Kubo. Although a very praised animated film.....it wasn't a $200M WW-box office smash, though.)

 

Sing: 73%

Pets: 74%

 

And if Moana is the better-received movie....then how could Sing outgross it DOM, in the long run, despite a lower OW than Moana? Well, simple.....Christmas legs & and the fact that it was well received enough to sustain those legs.

 

Moana: $248M ($56M OW) 🤑

Sing: $270M ($35M OW) 🤑

 

And again....if Moana is the better movie....why does it have a lower DOM & WW-gross than Pets? Well, because Pets had a bigger momentum & opening. And it even survived Dory. Heck, Pets even surpassed Zootopia, DOM-wise, WW is another story.

 

I'll compare again:

 

Moana: $248M DOM & $630-650M WW

Pets: $368M DOM & $875M WW

Zootopia: $341M & $1.023.8B WW

 

And even a Non-Disney movie (not from Illumination, but from Dreamworks) like Kung Fu Panda 3, also got great reception.

 

KFP3: 87%

 

I'm just saying that the Disney animated films, shouldn't be the only ones to have great reception. There should be a more balanced way that shows how well an animated is received.

 

And i don't buy the attitude of "Recent Disney animated movies are awesome.....fuck everything else!" Sorry. 😕

 

If there is an animated film that will be a huge box office hit...let's not it be only from Disney. Other films also deserves chances.
