WK3 10 (03) ¥110,000,000 ($1.0 million), -45%, ¥575,000,000 ($5.2 million), Snow Flowers (Warner Bros.) WK2Very interesting Top 10 this weekend. The #1 spot could realistically go to any of the Top 5 films. This is also a long three-day weekend (national holiday on Monday), so the inflated Sunday could paint an entirely different picture from Saturday's results. >Aquaman is... probably the favorite to win the weekend, though it did come in second place on Friday. Its weekend pre-sales are also just 11% higher than Justice League's, and 16% lower than Wonder Woman's. Both comparisons suggest a debut around ¥225 million. I'm expecting a slightly higher number than that due to a slight increase in ticket sales, but I doubt it reaches ¥250 million. >City Hunter actually won Friday by a small margin, besting Aquaman, but its weekend pre-sales are a little below Aquaman's and I expect some degree of frontloading. I'd be a little surprised if it ends up opening at #1, but it's certainly possible. And being an Aniplex release, it's probably safe to assume it'll have a high average ticket price. >Then you have The Seven Conferences and Masquerade Hotel, the two holdovers that could spoil the chances of the openers debuting atop the box office. Both films are down more than expected in pre-sales versus last weekend, but holdovers tend to outperform pre-sale suggestions, so a 30% hold could be good enough for one of them to claim the #1 spot. >And finally, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is the biggest wild card and could surprise and debut at #1. Its pre-sales are well ahead of every other film, but it's barely playing wide (120 screens), so it's at a disadvantage there. However, this film is likely to have a very high average ticket price given its fanbase, so it wouldn't necessarily need match the others in ticket sales to actually claim the #1 position. _________________

    Why not go to the Captain Marvel thread and complain that it has too few pages? It would help solve this potential problem.

    Damn, just saw about Albert Finney's death Big Fish is my all-time favourite movie, and his extremely subtle performance especially during the last act of the movie really brought together the emotional core. Great actor, rest in peace.

    So because it took a while that means it shouldn't be hyped? That makes no sense.

    The full review embargo is on the 5th because the US premiere is on the 4th...and the reason why the US premiere is so late is obviously because the Oscars are at the end of this month so they couldn't schedule it earlier. (I saw some tweets the other day about international premieres coming later this month though.) If CM was doinky, they wouldn't lift the social media embargo as early as they are, it would also have been listed as the 5th.

    Jeff Sneider has not made or broke a movie ever. His opinion on a comic book movie is irrelevant.

    The movie is set in 1995, while Space Jam was released in 1996. So the likely answer is that she couldn't believe she could fly yet.

    Also @Telemachos, how the fuck are you trying to stand up here and put Us in the "unappealing product" category? Get the fuck out of here with that BS brah

    They changed the title over two years ago for good reason. It’s a sequel, but they aren’t narratively fragmented/incomplete the way a lot of Part 1/Part 2 movies are — where it’s almost a 5 hour long movie that just gets chopped in half.

    Actually, I'd agree that there are some similarities to Superman but the funniest thing with that is, a lot of the vocal criticism of Captain Marvel have come from fans who love this version of Superman as well. And I'm not saying you have to like Captain Marvel or find her appealing but there is a lot of blatant hypocrisy from folks who love stoic male characters. Wonder Woman got some unnecessary hate but I don't think it reached this level of criticism and I say that as someone who likes both DC and Marvel. Of course boring is subjective. If you think the trailers have been boring, fine. But complaining about Captain Marvel not smiling enough or not having charisma are very suspect criticisms to me. Sexism is a large part of the issue, yes and by extension, I think that includes judging characters (and movies) more harshly whom one can't automatically relate to. Same thing happened with Black Panther and many other movies centering marginalized people. As for Black Widow, I don't think she's a good comparison considering she's just a side character right now. She has yet to have the spotlight on her or been asked to carry a movie. When her movie comes to fruition, I suspect she will get a lot more hate.

    I hope this movie is a roaring success because the way some people have been nitpicking it to death is rather sad, frankly. The most frustrating aspect has been the constantly overanalyzing of Brie's voice, facial expressions and Carol's supposed lack of personality. There will clearly be light hearted moments where she doesn't take herself too seriously. But even if she were more stoic and serious, what would be the problem? People love Cap/Steve, despite the fact that he is not exactly the most charismatic Avenger. I find him to be an absolute bore, to be honest. "Bearded Cap" in IW was the most exciting thing about this version of the character for me. Alas, he is popular nonethless and so, I wonder why there doesn't seem to be space for a "female Steve Rogers" or at least why some are way more critical of a female character who may have a similar personality. I know the obvious answer, just wondering if there is any other reasonable explanation (probably not).

    DH1 ends with Voldemort pointing the Elder Wand to the sky. IW ends after the consequences of Thanos using the Infinity Gauntlet had already been showed. It'd be the exact same ending if the last shot of IW was the snap itself. But the consequences were actually shown and Thanos' journey for his objective, the center focus of the film, was fully complete, while Voldemort got the Elder Wand to destroy Hogwarts in a future that Part 1 didn't show. Therefore, IW does feel more like a three act standalone story than DH1 does.

    I mean other than Blade, it’s not a false claim. And that was 20 years ago before the superhero movie breakthrough, and he’s not exactly a traditional style superhero either. More of a vampire hunter saga.

    How big exactly could WMW have been? Only way I could see it going beyond 100+ was if they'd cast Sandra Bullock or something. Henson has a fanbase, isn't as expensive, and the movie looks like it'll do nicely. Reviews I've read also make it sound like the movie doesn't solve its fundamental premise problem, i.e. that What Women Want was about Gibson getting humbled and learning his lessons, but a gender-flipped version is too busy being all "You go girl!" to find that kind of an audience-satisfying journey for its lead. The main hook doesn't work in reverse. Don't feel like there was ever a chance of aiming as high concept-wise or gross-wise.

    You know that leading role opportunities for women of color (especially in high-profile romcom vehicles like What Men Want) aren't exactly plentiful, right? Also, she is an Oscar and Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner, so let's not even pretend to question her acting credentials.
