  1. Past hour
  2. When a movie has numerous production issues, terrible reviews and now terrible box office it’s a perfect recipe to get piled on. Sucks but maybe the filmmakers should have thought about this before hand
  3. Now I think a real possibility is that SW becomes like the 007 franchise:Not the hottest thing around, but still enormously popular and very profitible, if not quite as dominant.
  4. Huh.... assuming 200mil happens for TS4, and honestly even if it doesn't, Disney is almost guaranteed to end the first 6 months of the year over 2 billion Domestic. After this weekend they only need about 270mil, and they've got 2 full weekends to get there. Not just that they'll hit 2 billion before anyone else hits 1 billion and then they've also got Lion King before anyone will get close to 1 billion.
  5. My point was, most of us who dislike it aren't crapping on this movie because it's "cool to hate". We just genuinely had a different experience with it than you did.
  6. Ok that’s your opinion I found this movie entertaining... I thought the first act was thrilling, 2nd act dipped but it was ok not actively bad and the 3rd act very entertaining.
  7. If the Franchise could survive a film as messed up as AOTC was,it can survive just about anything.
  8. Oh Im sorry, I meant JW2 in context as Jurassic World 2, I was comparing last year's summer biggies to this year's summer biggies, pointing out that while we may only have 2 non-Disney titles to beat JW3 domestically this summer, we only had 2 non Disney flicks to do so last year (Jurassic World and MI5). Again, I do think Hobbs and Shaw can beat JW3 domestically, but just not by that much. Im expected a 20/80 DOM/OS split like with Fate Isnt the film produced by Marvel studios? Disney participates from the film's success in 2 ways. First it could expand the MCU, strengthening the brand adding more fans etc and it has a financial connection through toy sales. Spiderman is one of the best (1 and 2 with Batman) merch seller of all the superheros. In short, the more success FFH the more Disney profits. Between Spiderman with Sony and now owning Fox, I honestly feel the FTC should have stopped the Fox merger On the other hand, I think it would have helped Disney to be able to end Phase 4 on Endgame. I feel like another MCU movie so soon could really stretch the franchise. Then again theyve released so many movies in such quick succession without tiring audiences, so maybe not (honestly the most impressive part of the MCU, 4bn from MCU last year and another 4bn this year (~5bn with spiderman). LIterally mind blowing, hate them or love them, the Marvel studios on its own could be a major Hollywood studio and there's something perverse about that much box office success)
  9. I just saw...100% on RT with 93 reviews in? That's really crazy, I'm so excited for this!!
  10. I just disagree though. I never thought I'd be using the words "bland" and "boring" to describe an X-men movie. Even the worse ones were still entertaining for me, until this.
  11. If you are going to criticise Kennedy, do it for her mishandling of "Solo". I have never gotten any reasonable explanation about if she was unhappy with what Lord and Miller were doing, why she waited until filming was 90% complete before removing them. Kennedy screwed up there. I had problems with TLJ, but, with all it flaws, it was a better film then the first two of the prequels,and the franchise survived those.
  12. charlie have already said domestic $325 to $330 M ... lets see ..
  13. It’s become really cool to hate on this movie. I just don’t think it deserves most of the attacks. It a rather watchable movie. Bland? Yes at some points but most movies nowadays are... The huge drop this weekend is understandable considering the bad buzz AND the fact that the franchise itself is very frontloaded. Even the beloved Days of Future Past dropped 64% on its 2nd weekend.
  14. thnxx for this post ... we are still behind ... yeah for 150 it need to pick-up a lot & quickly .. still few days left .. so will see what happens in coming days ... interesting week this would be
  15. Unsure about doing FFH as no midnight comparisons but Dark Phoenix might be a good comp for midnights as I expect those to be a big on the small side despite the big six day ($190M-$200M seems right)
  16. It's been mentioned before, but the main reason people like MIB is Will Smith. No one really cares about the world or lore of Men in Black, so take him out and nobody cares, unless you brought in a new A-lister. That's an issue with a lot of other star-driven vehicles, but when they get repackaged, studios played it smart by getting a huge A-Lister people like to replace the previous A-lister people like. Ocean's 8, Jumanji and Aladdin played it smart because they got a big actor people like to help spark interest and buzz. The only reason I saw these movies was because I like Sandra/Cate/Dwayne/Will, and I wanted to see what they would do with the material. Obviously the bad reviews would still cause the movie to sink, but I think replacing just one of the two leads with an A-lister (RDJ would have probably done wonders in the Hems role) would have helped it garner a bit more money on OW.
  17. Saw this just as I came to post . Keep in mind that I'm comparing I2 at the end of the previous day to TS4 at 1 pm, so the numbers will be slightly skewed in favor of TS4. TS4 - Thurs: 7759 (+602) (59% of I2 at the same point), Fri: 8350 (+821) (61% of I2), Sat: 6315 (+656) (65% of I2), Sun: 3441 (+328) (62% of I2), total: 25865 (+2407) (62% of I2 at the same point), daily gain: 2407 (68% of the comparable gain for I2) I2 - Thurs: 13054 (+925), Fri: 13652 (+1234), Sat: 9747 (+878), Sun: 5565 (+481), Total: 42018 (+3518) I'd really like to see this have a big Sunday surge. It will do well regardless but for 150+, it needs to pick up a lot and quickly
  18. MinaTakla, I was wondering if this movie's performance could make you finally root for some good animation movie instead of the usual Illumination crap
  19. That's not true. The Following was Nolan's only movie with just first or second takes and that was only because there wasn't enough time and money for more takes.
  20. "Hellboy" had a lower second weekend drop than Dark Phoenix?? Wow. ("Hellboy" is in quotes because I don't really acknowledge it legitimately.)
  21. Ohh, I forget to mention. The Jungle Book added $69mn after that $20mn weekend.
