  1. All the bad WOM of IM3 that I heard around me are something like: "there are not enough explosions.", "there should be more actions" etc. What a taste!
  2. I also notice the buzz for So Young. However, I never understand the hype for it. At least, as a 80s, I have no interest in it, while my wife, a die-hard fan of Princess Pearl, also shows no interest. Anyway, hopefully IM3 can have a date soon.
  3. Can't agree more :PThat's what I've wanted to point out since the second weekend.TA 2nd vs IM 1st: 103.1M vs 102.1M (plus preview)TA 3rd vs IM 2nd: 55.6M vs 51.2M
  4. I have to say, BS is the worst movie I've seen this year. And I've expected its bomb in Domestic for exactly one month after my viewing.
  5. Just came back from my third viewing of TA, with another 4 friends. Still enjoyed a lot
  6. Don't worry. It's nothing related to porn stuff. This is Chinese, not Japanese. I think it's just for fun. For your translation: "It's painful with outdated culture." "It's painful without a girlfriend." "It's painful without a brother." "It's painful without a boyfriend." "It's so delighted to be handsome rich man." "It's painful to be a cyclop." "It's painful to be unbeatable." "You guys are all bullies to me. So painful." Characters in the middle are: "The painful and cute ally" Sorry, my English is so poor that I cannot translate the exact humor inside.
  7. The only midnight show for me so far belongs to Avatar, which I watched 5 times...
  8. I think so. I was not even in high school at that time...In fact, only after 2006 when Kingkong was released in China, I became a frequent cinema moviegoer. At that time, the preliminary reason was only due to dating. :PI became a box office follower after 2007, the famous big three you know.
  9. Sorry, my mistake...I just have a glance at the post above, and JP3 came to my mind when I saw Jurassic Park.
  10. And that's my first Hollywood movie ever watched on big screen...
  11. For me, only Avengers, DH2 and SM3 in theateredit: no SP3 of course...
  12. Holy sh*t, I have so many pages to read. This thread is exploding again. And I'm so happy to read through so many posts.
  13. I can relax now, until Sat # kicks in.These two days I opened the Avenger thread on my browser, and refreshed it every hour. That's not a good way for *this* daily bo thread. It's exploding exponentially
  14. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!Finally I catch up with you guys :shades:It takes me one night to read through all the posts. You guys are crazy. And I don't want to miss anything
  15. Well, let's wait and see. As I said before, if one movie wants to behave like Avatar/TF3/Titanic, at least the frequent moviegoers around me and in my college have great interest in it. TASM doesn't at the moment. So that's why I said I don't know how this superhype comes from. I'm willing to change my avatar to spidey if I'm wrong.
  16. And part of scenes were taken in Hong Kong, including the man caught by Batman.
  17. No matter how it's popular worldwide, we are talking about the Chinese market here, which is quite different from worldwide's taste, especially on super heros.And I'm sorry, I want TASM to do well too. I don't see any bias here in this thread, however, in the actual life around my friends and college BBS who are the frequent moviegoers, they have bias on super heros. And I would say this bias view is very common across China.Spidey3 did well in China because of movie market exploding. It will definitely grow this time. But you cannot expect it to grow to the level as high as $100M. Even Harry Potter doesn't achieve that height.
  18. I have the same thought. Not really. I think TASM is way overhyped by you. I don't see any difference between Spidey and other Marvel heros. I can feel the same bias view on Spidey as that on other Marvel heros from my friends, of the age mid-20s (I'm a fan, though ). I think POTC4 is not a good comparison to Spidey. The largest draw of POTC series is Depp and the epic visual effect, which always works well in China. And also POTC type movie is well received in China. On the hand, even if TASM is not a reboot, with all the original cast back, it won't have the same increase we see in POTC4. It's intrinsically still a super hero movie. Now it's rebooted, it tells the similar story again. I don't think it will do much well. I never know how this super hype comes from. However, I do believe that it will attract much more female moviegoers than TA. TASM might not even beat TA in China. Mark my words
  19. Same opinion here. Super hero movies are not that popular in China. Of the mainstream moviegoers, most don't take SH seriously. Just like most think Animes are made for children, which is not true.Perhaps the exception is TDK. However, TDK never got a release, so no one knows if it follows the normal SH way. But with the always-good WOM of Nolan's films, I believe TDKR will do much better than TA, if it is released.
  20. No, it's not what you thought. Underreporting indeed exists, but the difference in numbers here doesn't come from underreporting. I cannot access IM2 foreign page on BOM at the moment. However, I find the $7.9M number in BOM first weekend report. That is to say, $7.9M for IM2 is not its gross, it's only the opening week, that's why you see a decrease from IM. You can check it here: http://boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=2769&p=.htm "...Even with openings in China, Germany and India, Iron Man 2's $59 million represents a 41 percent decline from its opening. In China, the movie got off to a strong $7.9 million start, which was up 39 percent from the first Iron Man's debut two years ago..."
