  1. Past hour
  2. Yea but I've been adulting super hard for a while so only like a quarter alive
  3. Depends on what you bring to the year of the pastry aka Y7. The guru will make no preemptive judgement.
  4. He was trying to go 4/20, Pink
  5. Now that's a hot take! You consider Ragnarok the same in quality as TDW? I'm now curious as to how you rank the other films...
  6. Not 100% yet. No hype. 😏
  7. Harden was absolutely 🐕💩 last night and we still won. 🤗
  8. Yes. And it was only PVR and INOX chain opening 1 screen per theatre to test the water. Just few minutes back Cinepolis (3rd biggest in country) opened and it crashed.
  9. Probably down to it being half term, likely why Rocketman and Aladdin are going on Weds the week before as well.
  10. I know HW is more frontloaded, but this still seems almost unfathomable to me. BHB2 was soooooooo huge.

    AVENGERS ENDGAME

    That's a good point. Even $1 billion domestic is probably a more achievable target than $2 billion OS.
  12. Avengers: Endgame - Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood (Full Weekend) Thursday Night Total 3677/4434 (82.9%) Friday Total 3432/5234 (65.6%) Saturday Total 3414/5234 (65.2%) Sunday Total 2499/4542 (55.0%) Weekend Total 13022/19444 (67.0%)
  13. Tentative OW predict (because I still have NO idea what this movie can accomplish over next weekend): I think it''ll JUST cross $300M. Previews: $62M Friday: $136.4M ($74.4M true Friday) Saturday: $90.7M Sunday: $75.3M TOTAL: $302.4M This is weird. If you ask me plainly if I'd bet on a $300M OW I'd say no. However, the individual daily breakdown seems feasible to me and, lo and behold, it adds up to just over $300M. I guess it's the presales that have sold me on it. It looks like we're going to see an all time record for Thursday previews and that's going to propel it to a truly massive total opening day, blowing away the $119.12M of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If it doesn't pass $300M, I think it'll be due to a slightly smaller Saturday bump from true Friday than I've predicted.
  14. As promised, I rewatched only Thor: The Dark World lol I liked it more this time than I did when I first watched it. It's not like, good or anything, but there's fun stuff in it. All of the Thor movies are more or less on the same level quality-wise for me
  15. Did you read my comment? Most theatres haven't alloteed screens so there is no way of booking ticket online. Or it would have easily surpassed the total
  16. I believe Louisiana is cocofles alt. From the way he reacts passive , aggressive to sometimes show support. It's clear as sky
  17. So did Endgame Break TFA presale overall record? May be unfair since i think that included Xmas day?
  18. I mostly don't want to get involved in these discussions but I just want to point out that his motivations didn't change to serve the script. His motivation from the car accident is at first to repair his hands: it's what gets him to seek the Ancient One yes and to learn from her yes but it isn't until her death, and her final words, that his motivation changes to stand up and fight (kinda like the push Coulson's death gave the Avengers to fight Loki)-before then he fights in self-defense. His motivation in IW stays the same because the script doesn't really give everyone time to grow. That's the nature of that film: most characters don't have room to grow. Doctor Strange meanwhile was just about him so it had to show growth. With character growth, motivations change. With normal films, a good way to tell act breaks is when a character's goals/motivations change. Consider Iron Man. His motivation in the first act is to sell the weapons and get laid and have fun. He gets captured (the inciting incident which changes his motivation) and finds out the truth about how his weapons are used so he builds a suit to escape them. The second act is him building the real Iron Man suit, figuring stuff out, and fighting the Ten Rings. The third act is when Obadiah betrays him so he has to take down Iron Monger; he literally has to fight what his business does. His goals change with each act-his motivation certainly changes as the movie progresses (after all he builds the first suit just to escape, not to be a superhero). If you are watching a movie that's focused on one character and his motivation/goals never change, chances are you are watching a bad movie.
  19. The first three movies came out before PG-13 was a thing. The first two prequels definitely suffered for being rated PG, because there was a definite lack of thrill to all the over-choreographed fights. But whether PG-13 or PG is better for a film's box office really depends on what tone it wants to go for. People watch Star Wars movies for their action, so a PG-13 rating suits them better. The Pokemon anime and games focus heavily on kid-friendly humor and bloodless Pokemon battles, so a PG-13 rating is simply a bad idea; I can't think of anything they could do to make it PG-13 that wouldn't turn off a lot of the audience.
  20. the preview record is locked, FYI. Take that to the bank. Stupid question to ask from this moment forward.
