    Wait, so you guys are saying that film makers consult with each other? What a shocking revelation. Of course Wan asked for some input from Snyder. Why wouldn't he? Only us nerds think there is some kind of rivalry between different film makers or that a director's vision is solely their own. Wan of course is the brains behind AQM but him asking for advice isn't shocking. Here's just a few examples of big name directors consulting with each other. Scorsese said Spielberg visited the set of Departed and gave him some advice on one of the scenes. He essentially ended up directing one scene in the movie. Cameron also gave Bay advice on Transformers , helping him direct the base jumping scene. Lucas has similar stories with Spielberg and certain scenes in Star Wars. Bill Paxton was having trouble with a few scenes in Frailty and Cameron, while visiting him on set, helped him through the difficulties. Sean S. Cunningham helped out Wes Craven on Nightmare on Elm Street when they were behind schedule. These are the only ones off the top of my head. But I know there are dozens of examples where directors seek the help of other directors.

    Looks like @MrGlass2 wins a gold account thanks to him misunderstanding the question.

    Wan is the reason that Aquaman is making a billion. Not the only reason because 100's of people are involved but more of a reason than Snyder. Snyder fanboys keep giving him credit for other director's successes. If he's so great then why couldn't he get BvS and MOS over the billion dollar mark? Anyway, it's funny that the Asian man who has directed a 1.5 billion dollar movie before and the Woman are the ones they keep trying to take credit from.

    We just got a new #1 movie that's about to reach close to 50M on the 4-day, and y'all still want to talk about Aquaman? Sigh.

    Brolys release is not typical. It will have more theaters some days than others. In particular Wednesday/ thursday it had premium and imax screens that it lost to Glass.

    I don't buy this story.It's from same group of people shouting for Zack synder cut.they always say bvs underperform and JL flop is others fault.While wonder woman and Aquaman succeed,they urgely say It's benefit from Zack synder.Those synder fanboys are annoying.No matter this article is true or not,Aquaman is James Wan film.Wan is in charge.It's embarrassing to mention whedon and synder here.I don't believe much that whedon is still involved in Aquaman film.He was out of DC after JL flop either.DC should move on.I don't want those whedon/Synder discussion anymore.Enjoy the ride of Aquaman and wait for shazam!

    The film did very well regardless how you spin it, it is tracking 40% ahead of TGS and pass La La Land. With more holidays such as MLK, President Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving to come, I can see the film reach 400m as what you have proclaimed.

    I will say one thing I'd like to see going forward for Y5 and on is an overall reduction in the number of movies with like 10,000+ word write-ups. It's resulted in too much stress for everyone, IMO, both in finishing the movies and in finding the time to review things. The way it worked last year with a lot of people only reviewing a handful of movies until very late rubbed me the wrong way. Also it creates a bit of a dilemma as a reviewer... I'll admit in the past that I've given movies higher scores than I thought they really deserved based on entertainment value simply because of the amount of work put into them. I felt like I was "supposed" to reward them for being really long and intricate. Specifically, off the top of my head, I'd say The Scavenger Wars and Fortnight only got 4 star ratings from me because of that. Frankly I thought both were overlong and had trouble staying engaged throughout. I won't be doing that going forward.

    Upside with a fantastic 18.4m 4-day (-10% from ow FSS) according to new projections. Earlier they said 13-14m. Are saying 306 by Mon for AQM which gives 12m 4-day (-31% from FSS), up from 10-11m previous projection. Am mildly optimistic that AQM will increase to 13m in the end. Spider-verse 4-day increases a bit from last weekend's FSS. Should sail past 180m dom. If Poppins can add 2x it's 4-day to the cume will get to TGS. HUMB RANK FILM DIS.

    Good to know that. As I predicted years ago, time is proving Zack Snyder was always the right person to create this cinematic DC universe. He understands the characters and is a brilliant filmmaker. While his own movies were divisive (but commercially successful), he still established a beloved universe and characters. The talented directors that followed his ideas achieved great success, and the one who didn't, failed spectacularly. It's a great thing that Zack Snyder is back as a producer for Wonder Woman 1984 and The Flash. Future is looking good for the DCEU. Both movies will gross over $1 billion too.

    It will be profitable within a week, yeah, I call that a massive win. It's opening on par or quite higher than Split in most OS territories, we'll see the legs but I'm confident that they'll be decent. It's just an endless refrain here every time. I remember folks blasting the Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns numbers and it's not just those. The 70 M-80 M predictions seemed delusional to me, Universal expected 50 M 4 day which seems to be where (or extremely close) it'll land, did they change those when the reviews hit? Who knows. But we've seen so many examples of reviews not doing a damn thing, so I really doubt that, most of the time, it can be used as a factor for "lower than expected" results. Shyamalan hasn't planned sequels, he says this is it, so yeah, either way, it's going to be a strong result

    ???? RPO is a gorgeous film, and it looks exactly like it should look which a photorealistic version of a virtual world, that looks hyper real yet not real to make a clear distinction between the real world and the OASIS. Just don't go after the VFX work on that film, you're not winning that fight.

    No it shoudn't, BOM total is the number Disney gives them. if you count every country on the boxofficemojo list you won't get to the OS total. BOM only uses the ER from the last WE it played in a country but the OS tot on DOM is a number directly from disney not all countries combined.

    The Shay thought of a funny thing: WHAT IF there was no RR in the whole scenario and Alita was marketed as director Cameron's next movie all along? Would the haters here then still keep their narrative - or would they be even more bewildered than now and not dare oppose the Cine-god? I think their heads would just burst from the opposing emotions... 1 You've got a movie you and the ones like you hate and want to die. (Why? Because it is not American or Superhero, and because it is original.) 2 But you have to bet against Cameron for that to happen, and no one on this Earth has the balls to do so. Quite the cognitive dissonance. I'm telling you, their brains would literally FRY! So what would they actually do? Well - the textbook example for a simple man dealing with cognitive dissonance. They just decide and convince themselves one of the two opposing points isn't true, even though it obviously is. And they declare Alita is NOT a Cameron's movie... ... just like they already did, here.

    I don't disagree with you. His charisma definitely helps the movie a lot and Snyder cast him. I don't deny that Snyder is apart of the success but Snyder's problem was never casting. The casting in his movies is good and interesting 95% of the time. It's the film surrounding the casting that causes the 65-70% drops. No matter what one thinks of the film Wan is a good popcorn director. Momoa was not going to be allowed to drearily mope in his movie the way Cavill is forced to. Wan was not going to have people walk out of his movie in a depressed state.

    Still a somewhat underwhelming performance for something that was deemed a huge crowd pleaser. Won’t even make half what Hidden Figures, The Help, etc made which were also Oscar nominated. The Upside will also handily beat it without breaking a sweat.

    Coming off from a strong, post-golden globe + holidays weekend, we can't really expect BR to have good hold, especially with multiple new releases in the market. From the figure now, we will expect something 30%+ drop this weekend, Should stabilize next week when new fresh buzz from Oscar nomination( should BR got nominated)

Directed by Masayuki Suzuki (best known for the incredibly popular Hero TV drama and its movies), a debut above ¥500 million seems all but certain for the mystery murder case film, and it should approach ¥600 million as well. ¥622.2 million is needed to break the January opening weekend record held by 2009's 20th Century Boys - Chapter 2: The Last Hope. This will be a film to watch even after it opens. The box office doesn't have too many major films released between now and the Spring, and if the audience reception is strong, it could go on to have an impressive run. At the very least, it seems almost a lock to exceed ¥3 billion ($25-30 million) with just a normal run, so expect a finish likely higher than that. >Bohemian Rhapsody finally appears to be slowing down now. Not only were its recent weekdays "normal", but it lost a good amount of screen/showtimes this weekend, and its pre-sales are also down a fair bit. There hasn't been any big film targeting adult audiences, really, since it opened, so it's very possible Masquerade Hotel may be impacting it some as well. Either way, it'll be on the cusp of the ¥10 billion uber-blockbuster milestone after Sunday. >Dragon Ball Super: Broly will likely outgross Resurrection F over the weekend to become the highest grossing film in the franchise. Very impressive indeed, and while it's unlikely, there's still a slim shot at reaching the ¥4 billion milestone. >Touken Ranbu: The Movie is the weekend wild card opener. It's only playing on 111 screens, but it performed very well on Friday and its pre-sales are good this weekend. That said, it's going to be frontloaded I suspect given its audience, so it could quickly fall as the weekend progresses. >Taxi 5 is a France import released via Asmik Ace. It won't do much, but a Top 10 debut looks doable. >Glass makes a surprising day-and-date release in the market, but Disney is barely giving it a wide release on 101 screens. It did so-so business on Friday, and pre-sales look decent enough to make the Top 10, but don't be surprised if it just misses and ranks 11th/12th. If it missed the Top 10, then Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will probably round out the Top 10 in its ninth weekend of release.
