  1. So the bad scenario is around $290 million OS. Still nice all things consider. The good scenario is even $315-320 million - very good for a first major movie released during pandemic. It seems the fate of the film completely depends on US theaters. With barely $30 mln after almost 2 weeks, this movie has no profit. Warner must keep it in cinemas as long as possible and push it over $100 million no matter what, even if the California and NY theaters opens as late as in December, and even if they decide to not release Tenet on UHD/Blu-ray/DVD for a whole year.
  2. Damn! I hate this news. I wanna punch somebody right now...
  3. Sow it yesterday. For me it's the weakest from all Christopher Nolan's films. Visually great, action and tension are fine, but the characters (excepts amazing Pattinson and good Debicki) are weak, the story is too convoluted, and the sci-fi concept is very confusing. Watching fights and chases scenes was great, but all the rest very tiresome (even dialog scene, like with Michael Caine). I also don't like the music (or whatever this sounds are). 6/10 I don't think it would be a huge hit. Even pre-pandemic i can't imagine Inception numbers. Incetpion was larger, more entertaining, more satisfying. I don't think people would wont to see it for the second, third time, as they did with Inception.
  4. Sorry, but what's your problem here? I didn't like the idea of Jeffrey Wright being cast as Gordon just because he was(is) Felix in Bond films, which for me was always some kind of Gordon-like character in the Bond franchise. And the new Bond film and the new Batman are separated less than a year in release calendar. But after this teaser, I'll give him a chance (he looks fine). Stop assuming that everyone are racists.
  5. The best movie trailer since the second Infinity War trailer (march 2018) for me! Love it (I'll give a chance even this awful Bat-cowl and Wright as Gordon). Finally Batman non-action film, but a detective movie! It looks like a Batman I've been waiting for, for a long time. Easily most anticipated film of 2021 for me. Fingers crossed.
  6. It's so funny, cause the movie initial release date was December and later November 2019. Warner pushed it to June 2020 and now they've lost potential $1 billion grosser (I don't think now WW84 will get that).
  7. This discussion is pointless. You're arguing which poop smells better. The correct answer: Both stinks! Genisys is more MCU-wanna-be, kids-friendly 10s' blockbuster than a "Terminator movie", and Dark Fate is just stupid, boring, unnecessary sequel which trashes beautiful T2 ending and all the stakes from T1 and T2. These are two awful Terminator movies. All in all, Genisys at least not tried to be "a true Terminator 3" (LOL) and was better sci-fi, so in my opinion it's smaller evil.
  8. The movie suffered from its gigantic success. It debuted in Top15 on IMDb in 1998, but after the whole "biggest box office of all time! 11 Oscars! etc." people started to hate it from silly reasons. Somewhere in 2205 it drooped to 6.9/10 on IMDb, now Titanic has 7.8/10 (very impressive hump after 2012 re-release). For me, this movie is one of the biggest cinema masterpieces. 4 stars, or 10/10, always maximum grade from me.
  9. Damn, You're right. Anyway, TLJ did on its seventh weekend $4.25M. TRoS will do something like this on its sixth weekend (maybe closer to $5M). After that, TLJ add $9.3M to its domestic gross. Even if TRoS start to sell more tickets than its predecessor and add $11M, it still will finish somewhere around $512.5M dom. If U not wrong about $565M OS, ww final gross would be $1.078B.
  10. Yes. This Thursday Skywalker should be at $497M domestic. With good hold during the weekend it should be at $501.6M on Sunday. With similar legs to The Last Jedi from now on (its MLK weekend wa s 70-72% lower than Episode's VIII, despite the fact TRoS is in cinemas one week short) the movie is going to finish with $511-512.5M domestic. If I'm correct, it only needs about $568 mln OS to finish at $1.08B. I think it's highly likely.
  11. It would be awesome if it won't pass last year's Aladdin worldwide numbers!
  12. Fun fact #377 Star Wars fell to the second place for the biggest hits (domestic as well as worldwide) in early 1983 and remain 2nd till early 90s (JP, T2). Fun fact #390 Star Wars fell to the second place in domestic chart in March 1998 and remain second for over 10 years (!!) till The Dark Knight!
  13. The classic among the classics. The blockbuster. Remember Star Wars? Star Wars debuted on Wednesday 25th 1977. The movie became unprecedented hit, beating Jaws as the very first movie ever to cross $200 mln in domestic gross. After 422 days (60.3 weeks) the movie stood at $221,280,994 as the highest grossing film of all time! But it wasn't over, because due to its huge popularity, 20th Century Fox advertise it again with new posters and new commercials, adding theaters to unprecedented number of 1644 or 1756 (depending on source) extending Star Wars' initial run till November 7th 1978 (532 days / 76 weeks) when it finishes at $265,055,905! Later, Star Wars were re-released couple of times, in 1979 (for over three weeks with gross of $22,455,262), in 1981 (for two weeks only with gross of $17,247,363), and 1982 (for 8 weeks with gross of $15,476,285). This is the very first movie ever who crossed $300 million domestically, and the biggest hit of all time since December 1977 till January 13th 1983. Production Budget: $11 million* *Some sources claim more, even $13 million. Marketing costs: N/A Domestic: $322.74 million [The biggest hit of all time for over 5 years] Foreign: $190.3 million [The second biggest hit after Jaws] Worldwide: $513.04 million [The biggest hit of all time 1978-1983 until E.T.] Of course Star Wars reclaims its domestic title (the second and the last film in history who does that) and became all-time champ again, from February 14th 1997 till March 14th 1998, thanks to Special Edition from 1997.
  14. I don't know about 5 billies, but $3B for sure and easily no. 1 domestic, overseas and worldwide. Shame they postponed it.
  15. My prediction - Top10 worldwide. 1. Fast & Furious 9 - $1.08B [domestic: $200 mln / overseas: $880 mln] - seriously, it is the only 100% sure 1 billion-breaker next year. 2. Mulan - $1.025B [domestic: $175 mln / overseas: $850 mln ~ $350 mln from China] 3. WW84 - $1.015B [domestic: $445 mln / overseas: $570 mln] - it might ends up with $380 mln in US, but I'm optimistic about it 4. Black Widow - $900 mln [domestic: $310 mln / overseas: $590 mln] 5. No Time to Die - $850 mln [domestic: $220 mln / overseas: $630 mln] 6. Minions: The Rise of Skywalker - $825 mln [domestic: $210 mln / overseas: $615 mln] 7. Soul - $780 mln [domestic: $290 mln / overseas: $490 mln] 8. "Some chinese movie" - $750 mln [98% from China] 9. Eternals - $720 mln [domestic: $260 mln / overseas: $460 mln] 10. Top Gun: Maverick - $700 mln [domestic: $205 mln / overseas: $495 mln] Venom 2 won't cross $600 mln worldwide, I don't know about Tenet, maybe (cause it might have a shot for $250 mln domestic).
  16. It seems both, domestic and overseas, Skywalker is going to finish with max. $550 mln. So $1.1B is max. where it'is heading.
  17. $198 mln is from five days, right? 3-day weekend was "only" $142.5 mln? I acctually don't know if Skywalker will even beat Rogue One's OS numbers! 😮
  18. Seems it will land between TLJ and RO overseas. I think $620 mln is in play, no more.
  19. Well, my prediction was freaking great! Dark Fate 2/10 - the worst Terminator yet.
  20. Well, my prediction wasn't that ridiculous after all. There's no previews in Poland. I will see it on November 8th. For now: The Terminator 10/10 T2 10/10 Rise of the Machines 7+/10 Salvation 5/10 Genisys 4/10
  21. My final prediction from 16 Sep (I published it on another forum😞 Opening weekend: $26.5 mln Domestic: $64 mln Foreign: $240 mln Worldwide: $304 mln I maybe will see it on November 2nd if there'll be any previews. If not, Polish premiere is the last on Earth (as usual), Nov 8th.
  22. OW in Poland wasn't great (140-160k admission). Not much help from us, sorry.
