    One of the better Pixar sequels IMO. I'll be honest I had big doubts about it being on par with the original trilogy but thankfully its far more memorable than say Incredibles 2 or Dory. I'd say its on par with TS3 but the first two Toy Storys are still better. But its not 100% easy comparing the trilogy and the new one though. TS4 definitely spices it up with some unexpected things. Weird story elements aside, it is also fucking hilarious and pretty sure I cried a lot. Animation is gorgeous and the voice acting is as great as ever. I definitely need to chew on it some more but Pixar definitely didn't throw this together for a episode.

    Why would this be funny? Kids often know from a fairly young age that they are different when it comes to sexuality and attraction, or will meet other kids that are different. Many parents want to see this reality reflected in the movies they take their kids to see, so that their own kids know that they are normal and loved, and know to treat others the same way. That's not funny to me, and arguably it is more important to have this simple representation in movies directed to kids, as they grow up to be adults. In my experience, people aren't "loudly demanding" that a character be gay, only that it should be a non-issue that a character were gay. And given the lack of representation in media (including movies), how wonderful it might be to see that on screen sometimes. Peace, Mike

    Nobody asked for my opinion on this, of course. But I can't help but think that it's just not worth it to Reply to some of the posts made recently in this thread. Does everyone have to follow my lead in this matter? Up to folks reading this thread, I suppose.

    That is because she doesn’t HAVE ONE. Her struggle and journey centers on learning that Jude Law is a gaslighting jackass, realizing her has no control over her, and then unleashing her power and “emotions”. No depth of character? Did you not watch all of her scene with Maria and Monica? MAAAYBE. It’s NOT that she lacked a depth of character, maybe it is that men are not trained to sympathize with women, particularly women who are not stereotypically girly or written via the “male gaze”, and Captain Marvel is a film that unapologetic in its lack of male gaze. 🍵🍵🍵🍵

(141.9M) Day 24-8 242% of Shazam! (132.3M) 84% of Incredibles 2 (154.1M) 294% of Dragon 3 (161.9M) This...this is fantastic. Very rarely do upcoming releases see an increase on Thursday (for good reason). And yeah, having reviews out is the reason why it increased, but good results are good results. If this keeps up the momentum through the rest of the week, we could be in for something special. Annabelle Day 22-13 20% of Us (14.6M) Yeah, I guess that's a reasonable 3-Day? Not really anything special at the moment. Far From Home Day 29-19 15% of Infinity War (37.9M) 51% of Captain Marvel (79M) So this isn't as impressive as Toy Story's Thursday, but this being relatively level with Wednesday is very very good. And it's also making great gains on Captain Marvel.

Disney's latest live-action remake sold a remarkable 766,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 842 screens. And after three days in release, it reached 960,000 admissions. This debut is 5% higher than 2017's Beauty and the Beast and 15 lower than 2010's Alice in Wonderland. While the box-office won't be dead until mid-July, Aladdin will mostly have the next several weeks to itself, so look for some potentially strong numbers for the first month or so of its release. As for where it may finish, it's too early give a reliable projection. This is the first Disney live-action remake to open outside of any major holiday frames, so theoretically it shouldn't display the legs of its studio predecessors, but having little competition for a month will go a long way. Not to mention that audience scores are very good, so it'll likely benefit from good WOM as well. I do, however, expect a total around ¥9 billion ($80 million), but I also wouldn't be surprised if it makes a play at the ¥10 billion ($90 million) milestone. >Godzilla: King of the Monsters saw a sharp second weekend decline after its great opening last week, but its hold isn't unexpected since last Saturday was a national discount day, which inflated its opening a bit. Under normal circumstances, it likely would have dropped between 35-40%. Still, the drop is a little high and the good audience reception may not help it afterall. I still have it exceeding the ¥3 billion milestone and outgrossing its predecessor, and expect it'll finish around ¥3.5 billion ($30 million). >The Confidence Man JP experiences its worst weekend hold yet, though that hold is still below a 30%. It's already earned what it was expected to after just four weeks, and is on track to reach the ¥3 billion ($25 million+) milestone. This is an impressive result for a film that opened right after the Golden Week holiday period. >Kingdom has done it -- it has become the highest grossing live-action film based on a Weekly Shonen manga series, surpassing 2014's[ Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno. It exceeded 4 million admissions in its eigheth-weekend of release, and also exceeded a multiplier of 10. The film was expected to perform well, but it well out-performed those expecations. >Pokemon: Detective Pikachu has begun to experience heavier drops now, weekdays and weekends alike, and while I do believe it'll reach the ¥3 billion milestone, it's going to just barely get there. This is still a good performance for the film, but in the end, it closely mirrored the recent animated films in its debut and its end result. >Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire and Avengers: Endgame fell outside the Top 10 this weekend, in their ninth and seventh weekends, respectively, though both films still posted decent holds despite noticeable screen/showtime cuts. The former has locked up the ¥9 billion milestone as a result, and will be the film that Aladdin will be vying to beat for the year (so far, still lots of the year remains); and the latter locked up the ¥6 billion milestone thanks to its hold.

    Ah yes. Let it be "natural" and "not shoehorned in". There's one itsy teeny tiny little problem with this idea. For many folks having any LGBTQ+ characters, new or not, is never natural and is almost always "shoehorned in". It's one of this impossible to define situations that is a convenient "out" for many. Not saying you in the specific, but it's one of those near-impossible to define qualifications that holds back LGBTQ+ representation. As for this: when it comes to Frozen II in specific and Disney animation in general, remind me again how many confirmed LGBTQ+ characters there are in Disney Animated Films? I personally haven't been keeping track but I suspect the answer isn't even close to 4% never mind 20%. (I do know the answer is in fact "not zero" when it comes confirmed as opposed to speculated/seen as) ==== Finally, there are quite a few people who think it is very natural and not at all shoehorned in that one particular character in Frozen is LGBTQ+. And I think that is just about all I have to say in regards to the point about something being "natural" and "not shoehorned in".

    Movie/Date Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday Men in Black 226 211 320 255 255 256 532 11 days 10 days 9 days 8 days 7 days 6 days 5 days Toy Story 4 980 707 929 746 706 617 973 18 days 17 days 16 days 15 days 14 days 13 days 12 days Annabelle 3 13 29 48 48 31 48 22 days 21 days 20 days 19 days 18 days 17 days Spider-Man FFH 582 544 692 577 493 344 509 29 days 28 days 27 days 26 days 25 days 24 days 23 days MIB Day 11-5 41% of Dark Phoenix (13.5M) 28% of Shazam! (15M) 32% of Dragon 3 (17.8M) 43% of Dumbo (19.6M) 61% of Pets 2 (28.9M) Day 16-5 48% of Dark Phoenix (15.9M) 35% of Shazam! (18.8M) 36% of Dragon 3 (20M) 48% of Dumbo (22M) 79% of Pets 2 (37.5M) Is it foolish to say that I don't trust these comps and am optimistic about this movie's actual chances? Even with the lack of buzz or marketing, I just feel like this can't open that low...can it? Toy Story Day 18-12 185% of Dumbo (85.2M) 301% of Lego 2 (101.8M) 194% of Dragon 3 (106.6M) 120% of Aladdin (109.8M 3-Day, 140.1M 4-Day) 60% of Incredibles 2 (110.5M) 278% of Shazam (148.8M) Day 24-12 237% of Shazam! (126.7M) 290% of Dragon 3 (159.8M) 107% of Incredibles 2 (195.1M) So as of right now, I'm not in the "over I2 OW" hype train just yet, let alone "over 200M OW". The movie has slowed down considerably this week. But of course, the dream's not completely dead. There's still a few more days to go, and even if it does break the record, I don't think there's as much of a rush to buy tickets days in advance compared to something like Incredibles, both due to demand, and slightly different audience demographics. And of course, this should still do very well either way, if @Porthos and his data is anything to go by (though more of a #NotARecord kind of well). This week and next week will probably be the big deciding factors here over whether any records would be shattered. Annabelle Day 22-17 17% of Us (11.8M) This is one that I decided to just throw in for fun. Partly because it could be used in the future for stuff like It: Chapter Two or Conjuring 3, and also partly because I only have three other movies to look at at this time, so might as well exercise my brain a bit by adding one more movie. And of course, I don't think we need to take this too seriously at the moment, especially because I don't think there's been an official "tickets on sale" announcement yet. Far From Home Day 29-23 37% of Captain Marvel (57.3M) Day 36-23 30% of Captain Marvel (46.3M) So this seems bad, but somebody mentioned that marketing was not in full force like Captain Marvel was at the same point in time, largely due to MIB occupying all of Sony's attention. So I am optimistic things will turn around fairly quickly and there will be a ticket increase. Then again, 2019 seems to be following Mickey's Law, where anything that can go wrong for all non-Disney studios will go wrong, so maybe this applies to a Disney movie under Sony's clothing?

    Movie/Date Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Toy Story 4 1,724 2,015 3,101 3,145 2,762 11 days 10 days 9 days 8 days 7 days Annabelle 3 66 55 81 53 56 16 days 15 days 14 days 13 days 12 days Spider-Man FFH 907 803 1,192 1,064 941 22 days 21 days 20 days 19 days 18 days Toy Story Day 18-7 66% of Incredibles 2 (120.3M) 133% of Aladdin (121.7M 3-Day, 154.7M 4-Day) 303% of Dumbo (139.2M) 261% of Dragon 3 (143.4M) 273% of Shazam!

Comps still indicate 150M OW, but things can change if the film's momentum continues. Probably depends on whether there's an increase on Saturday tomorrow. Aladdin had a really strong increase at that point in time, and that was the moment that made me really confident in its financial prospects. At the very least, I have a couple clubs on the line, so this better deliver the next couple days lol Annabelle Day 22-12 18% of Us (13.1M 3-Day, 15.6M first 5 days) 50% of The Nun (26.7M 3-Day, 30.9M first 5 days) So two new things happened. The obvious one is that I managed to go into the akvalley archives and find Nun numbers, arguably the better comp of the two. I might also add in The First Purge tomorrow, because that's probably the best comp to use in the first place. But hey, three is better than one. I'm also gonna test things out a bit and use the first 5 days for regular movies when it comes to comping Wednesday openers. I doubt it's as effective as simple Wednesday openers, but it doesn't hurt to try. Far From Home Day 29-18 14% of Infinity War (35.2M 3-Day, 44.1M first 6 days) 51% of Captain Marvel (78.7M 3-Day, 96.2M first 6 days) I'm doing the same thing with Annabelle. Nothing really interesting here. Slight declines, but really nothing to worry about.

    So let me get this straight. Someone noted what a historic year Disney is having at the box office and decided to make a little competition out of it and someone else in response to that said “stop staning corporations”. Never change, BOT, never change.

    I don't get why people get so confused and angry over people liking or being fans movie studios or distributors, because there are decent reasons to do so. If they have franchises you like, frequently employ certain actors or directors, or just have a certain aesthetic, vibe or style that makes them stick out. Sure, I'd rather people be more supportive over studios like A24 or Blumhouse over Disney or Universal, and studio stans are arguably more annoying than most fandoms here, but I don't really see what's the big deal with people saying "Go Universal!" Using WB as an example, if someone really enjoys DC/Potter/Lego, enjoys directors like Eastwood and Nolan and Affleck, likes quality, big-budget horror (well, big-budget compared to stuff like Plat Dunes and Blumhouse), or just likes the grit some of WB's recent blockbusters possess...why wouldn't they be supportive, or consider themselves "fans" of a studio that gives them stuff they like?

    Eight Hundred is a double edge sword to CCP. It is based on the historical Defense of Sihang Warehouse (DoSW), one of the most iconic battle in War of Resistance against Japanese aggression in 1937-1945. However, the 800 soldiers (actual number was 423) were from Nationalist Army under Chiang Kai-shek led Kuomintang (KMT, Chinese Nationalist Party), the archrival of Chinese Communist Party. CCP might fight a few battles in Sino-Japanese War, but certainly had no role at all in DoSW. Nationalist Army/KMT suffered great loss in this Sino-Japanese War, while many people believe CCP and its army did not fully engage themselve in this war but rather benefited from it and grew in size and strength by dodging. CCP finally defeated KMT in the 1945-1949 Civil War. Chiang Kai-shek and his Nationalist Army retreated to Taiwan. In past 20 years, CCP slowly and gradually recognises Nationalist Army/KMT's role in War of Resistance, but insists that CCP was the mainstay/cornerstone/"tower of strength" in the War. So on one hand Eight Hundred can promote the patriotism which may help the Chinese to be steadfast in current Trade War with USA. On the other hand, it may stir up controversy with regards to CCP's role in War of Resistance, and how much cover-up of historical facts occurred under CCP's regime. Not a good timing when China economy is not in good shape to let doubts cast on the regime's authenticity/legitimacy.

    Can i just say that Captain Marvel was pretty damn good and deserves all the money it made? And Brie Larson is an Oscar winner for a reason. She's perfect cast. Very good performance. Even tho i enjoyed WW a little more, Brie was the superior performance. She had more to do and show. Haters online can choke

    Again, that Indonesia's number! It exceeded my most optimistic prediction every single week. Traditionally, local movies dominate Eid holiday week and therefore Aladdin's legs should have been cut due to lost of screens. There were 5 (!) new releases this past week. But apparently people here love Aladdin so much that they still choose it over the local movies. I even think it barely dropped this weekend. Below is the list of the highest grossing foreign movies of all time as of May 10. Since then, Endgame has reached $34.5m and 11m admissions, and with $15.2m Aladdin has entered the top 10. Aladdin could challenge Aquaman at #5, but since the holiday's over, also Dark Phoenix and SLOP 2 will be released next week, I think it will drop hard and settle at #6. But it has surprised me every week so far, so who knows.

Toy Story is still going strong, although 150M still seems like the highest it could go at the moment (we'll see how reviews impact things later today), Annabelle is starting to gain traction, and Far From Home jumped quite a bit in the ticket sales too. Hopefully we'll see an even bigger spike in the coming days.
