    Or you coulda directed that energy into reading the past couple of pages of the thread where there are quotes from multiple people who've actually seen the movie about the actual reasons the planting isn't in it. Fuck your ignorance and your flaunting of it.

    Planting the flag was a bit of a fumble and generally an awkward procedure. It's a fair enough cut if they want to focus on other aspects of the landing (which it sounds like they do, as @antovolk described, and he's actually seen the goddamn movie). Just watch the footage: Unless you want then to actually rewrite history by making him plant the flag all lickety split or whatever, it seems totally logical to trim down that part of the moon landing. Not showing that one aspect isn't rewriting history, and I think at this stage that it's pretty clear that they do show the flag in the film considering how many people who have, y'know, seen it have said as much. Anyway, Armstrong's speech is far and away the most iconic part of the landing. Not them putting a flag down. One small step for man and all that. Kinda rich of you to be getting all "fuck this movie" over a totally reasonable creative decision made by the filmmakers and then complaining about how oversensitive people are.

    JW2 will cross 2.80x multi (414.47) on Sunday. Never felt it could do 416-417 after a 148.024 ow. That's better legs than THG, CF and GOTG2 among others.

    Obviously, not planting the flag isn’t the re-write of history. The actual re-write of history is having a real moon landing to begin with!

    More fun with SotM's. SotM 7 looks like there's a real chance of fiddly numbers changing, so I'm skipping it for now and moving onto... SotM 6 - A tale of 4 blockbusters 4 movies: Avengers:IW, Deadpool 2, Solo, and JW:FK. 6 numbers: 200m, 150m, 100m, 75m, 50m 25m. You were supposed to pick which movies would have *a* weekend (didn't have to be OW) that was closest to each individual number. The movies were ranked on closeness to each number, so each movie was ranked 1st through 4th for each number. The closer your pick for each number was to being 1st, the more points you got. The farther away, the more points you lost. Big drops between OW and 2nd week resulted in some weird placements. Abstaining was worth 3k, and wasn't a bad choice this time around. Spoiler alert: Solo, on the other hand, was almost always a bad choice, as it was 4th for 3 of the 6 numbers, plus 3rd for another. Also, the fairly popular 75m - DP2, 50m - Solo, 25M - A:IW sequence was pretty damaging, as all 3 of those picks came in 4th. Here are the scores: That One Guy - 55k (I did this one first, and was like "Wow, I shouldn't have abstained." Turns out, that was the top score) Empire - 45k Infernus - 22k JJ8 - 22k aabattery - 12k captainwondyful - 12k 24Lost - 3k bcf26 - 3k Deja23 - 3k grey ghost - 3k MovieMan89 - 3k MrPink - 3k Slambros - 3k The Dark Alfred - 3k Wrath - 3k WrathOfHan - 3k Jake Gittes - -21k kayumanggi - -23k Premium George - -23k baumer - -25k Fancyarcher - -25k glassfairy - -25k chasmmi - -35k Sheik - -35k Avatree - -48k Simionski - -48k ZeeSoh - -60k Incidentally, I have the spreadsheets from all these SotM's. If anyone wants them, just let me know.

HT3 is now about 45% behind DM3, despite being just 15/20% behind last weekend. DM3 behaved like this: 630k Friday, 1.22M Saturday, 1.12M Sunday. Using the same multiplier, HT3 would make about 2 millions over the weekend (which includes Thursday), or a 60% drop from its 5-day OW despite Christopher Robin bombing and rain falling. Considering it can't be that bad, Saturday will probably show some unusual jumps.

    i said this in the other thread but american sniper didn't even go wide until after its oscar nominations so it probably wouldn't be eligible. but sure if A Star Is Born breaks out huge and makes $200 mil or something it'll probably just win both and make this category look even more pointless. i kinda hope that happens because that'll probably just make them wanna scrap it next year more than if black panther wins like it's supposed to.

    Remove the De Wit project and Warlord of Mars from the schedule. I'm delaying them to Y5. Instead move Gargoyles: Awakening to July 17th and up its TC to 4,150.

    I can see CRA not quite making it to 200 if it drops say 35% next weekend (and that would be a very good hold for a post-LD weekend). Wouldn't make its run any less phenomenal, of course.

    All odds? It's a re-make that's already been filmed 3 times - two of them are all time great films and the other is er O.K. (and a huge B.O. hit). This is rock solid gold standard material that's already worked over five decades of films (not even counting The Artist which takes a spin on it) - it's hard to really screw up. It's impressive though that it sounds like he hit it out of the park.

    Late August is a prime time for weekend bragging rights. Last few years saw films with threepeats atop the weekend in mid to late August. All were ‘diverse’ films interestingly. Hitmans Bodyguard Butler Straight Outta Compton and now, Crazy Rich Asians

    Sometimes I don't understand how some of you guys come up with some of these outlandish predictions. Why would a star is born open up to 50 million? Mike is there that much demand for it? And since when is Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga that much of a draw?

Teen Titans had a decent debut, slightly (16%) higher than My Little Pony last year and could target 100k admission, a respectable milestone for a small movie. Its weekly gross was 244k USD. Slender Man did very meh and will be soon destroyed by the Noon. The Syp who dumped Me did bad but not especially so compared with other comedy releases this year. The strongest holdovers like HT3 and Equalizer 2 had better than expected drops. Hotel Transylvania 3 passed Coco as the fifth most-viewed movie of the calendar year and will indeed reach 20th place of all time list. This week releases: Mamma Mia 2 (2nd on OD), Mile 22 (4th) and El Angel (8th)

    The moment in ROTJ makes perfect sense, it did not in TLJ. Luke threatened his Sister with violence and the film built up to that moment with the Leia reveal and Palpatine seductions. Luke used the dark side to beat Vader and was about to kill his father and realized the path he was one would lead to a similar fate. Knowing he had no choice, Luke decided to rather die at the emperors hands and defiant, where then Vader redeems himself and sacrifices himself. Luke in the TLJ simply looked in the future and decided to want to kill his sisters only child and that mistake went full emo and then died of using 'too much force' You see how one makes a great story and the other seems like a poorly written fan fiction you guys make fan of the neckbeards for?
