    The Peanuts Movie OS Thread

    HT2 made $113m in China
  2. HT2 seems to have an exceptionally high percentage of its OS coming from China 44.7%. Does anyone know of higher percentages (or the record)? TF4 had 37.3%, Titanic(incl.3D) had 12.4% Spectre has 72.9% at the moment, but that will probably come down
  3. Job's biopic shows that critics and some yuppies in NY and CA don't represent the US as far as "I want to see this movie" goes.
  4. A big animated movie, that makes less than 60% of its WW in OS, is an oddity today. This year we have 3: In side out 57.8%, HT2 58.4% and Home 54.0% Is Hollywood losing its touch with overseas markets? I was questioning this with last year's Lego Movie with only 45.0% (most of the OS coming from the English speaking world. Last year was also the first time in like forever that no animated movie cracked the Top10 WW.
  5. also totally agree with that - I hate it when I must see the xx-th version of a story I know since decades definitely the first DM was the best (there are very few franchise where it is otherwise- maybe Godfather 2)

    The Jungle Book over Maleficent DOM Club

    So it is going to be a musical with Scarlet Johanson singing?

    The Jungle Book over Maleficent DOM Club

    I've seen several life-action movies of the Rudyard Kipling story. Why should a retelling by Disney be such an enormous success?

    2015: Top 12 Worldwide

    chances are that it will be only No.4 movie of 2015 nobody predicted that - funny
  9. the Despicable Me/Minions - franchise is the new Ice Age for the International market The progression is awe inspiring : 300 - 600 - 800 compare this to other top-franchises: Shrek: 220 - 480 - 480 - 510 - 400 Toy Story: 170 - 240 - 650 Madagascar: 340 - 420 - 530 - 290

    Ant-Man under 50 Shades WW club

    in Germany for instance 50shades has almost twice as many tickets sold as Avengers2 (Antman has no chance)
  11. All 3 Hobbitses had 6mill. Germans are true.
  12. A movie can be as good as it may, if there is not enough audience intersted in it, it will fail to make as much money as a worse movie, that serves its audience well will make.
  13. probably not, but they love tiny men
  14. But what do you think, would be the optimal strategy for a studio to build their franchise? No TV series at all, or taking out something from the first sequel (not the main characters) and use that for short episodes on TV to keep kids interested? Maybe a TV series set in the universe of that possible franchise, that uses the main characters in a pilot and shows something different? Then when the next sequel is ready for cinemas, the main characters reappear in the TV-series to make publicity for the upcoming movie?
  15. A Kids movie with a handicaped main character is not a good idea (don't mention AVATAR, that is something totally different). I just watched Home for the first time - it is cute, but I don't understand its success. As a big Big Bang Theory fan I liked Jim Parsons voice, but I undestand, why it underperformed outside the English speaking world (non English speaking world Home:HttyD2=141:376 , not all of that can be explained by Dragons being a sequel) What I wonder is, how Kids think about the contradiction, that an alien speaks reasonable English (albeit Yoda-style) and knows nothing about humans but the small note they were given? The jokes are mostly child friendly (perhaps I did not get all of them as an alien myself (I had to queue in the Alien-queue, whem I wanted to reenter the United states after a short visit to Mexico in Tijuana) By the way I just saw some German dubbed Big Bang Theory episodes (they bring it as Kids program here in Austria and Germany), and a lot of the jokes are slaughtered in the translation.
