  1. This sucks but it was smart to do it now. Claim a desirable release ahead of any other major release being rescheduled. Plus, the anticipation could be a good thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It sucks but it’s probably for the best in terms of the films financial viability. Also, this kinda adds to the anticipation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. This schedule assumes that the outbreak of COVID-19 is under control in fall/winter. https://www.google.com/amp/s/api.nationalgeographic.com/distribution/public/amp/science/2020/02/what-happens-to-coronavirus-covid-19-in-warmer-spring-temperatures They may be better off just pushing through to the current release date. No one knows so you’re asking them to make a decision on unknown scenarios. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. David Lean? Lmao. Why not list Francis Coppola’s Godfather trilogy too? Yes, some of the recent big blockbusters have had long runtimes. What is being implied? Why does that fact matter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Which isn’t a bad thing to me. QOS will be the OHMSS of the modern era: reassessed as an under appreciated classic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Expect some heavy and varied tv promotion throughout March Madness in the US. We could get a slew of TV spots instead of a final theatrical trailer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I think what he meant is that nothing gets released without the Broccolis giving the sign off. They may not have put it together and they may not be the only say but if it’s a ‘no’ from them then it’s most likely going to be a no. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Interesting. I think the same strategy was used for Skyfall. If I remember correctly, Skyfall’s opening in the States when early IMAX showing were included was something closer to $90m. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. We’re still more than a month out from release so this could be the angle they take when the cast and crew are doing the press tour. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I agree with this. Don’t get me wrong, the Chinese gross is nothing to sneeze at but, like you stated, it’s a much smaller total of Bond’s worldwide gross compared to other franchises. I also think NTTD will perform significantly better than Spectre in key regions, like the US, UK and Western Europe. That paired with a strong USD (exchange rate), should push this past Spectre. It may not make $1.1b+ but a gross similar to TDK or TDKR, with different ratios, is entirely possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/scottmendelson/2020/02/17/coronavirus-box-office-james-bond-tom-cruise-dwayne-johnson-mulan-f9-tenet-sonic-top-gun/amp/ "Spectre earned $83 million in China when it opened in late 2015, and there was every expectation that No Time to Die (which Universal is distributing overseas) would earn at least that much in April. Spectre grossed $881 million worldwide, so even an equal performance sans China still gets the $250 million-budgeted 007 adventure to $798 million (above Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s $792 million cume which included $136 mi

  16. I think there's a real chance. With good reviews, I think, it has a chance at exceeding $800m. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. I think the anticipation for Spectre was somewhat dulled because of the SONY hack and script leaks. The producers had to fight against a narrative that switched from ‘how will they follow up Skyfall?’ to ‘Will the movie be as questionable as the script.’ The box office increases from Die Another Day to Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace to Skyfall demonstrate how a good Bond movie plays worldwide. If NTTD gets the kind of praise that Casino Royale and Skyfall received then, I think, a billion is a lock. To put it another way, QOS was lambasted and still came within spitting distance of C
  19. I think the song really works in advancing the Bond “sound” with a new generation of potential fans, and it’s just a good song. In terms of marketing, NTTD is doing its job like gang busters: https://headlineplanet.com/home/2020/02/15/billie-eilishs-no-time-to-die-debuts-at-1-on-global-spotify-chart-2-on-us-listing/ “Billie Eilish’s “No Time To Die” Debuts At #1 On Global Spotify Chart, #2 On US Listing“ https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/8551127/billie-eilish-no-time-to-die-justin-bieber-changes-best-new-release “Billie Eilish has beaten one of her absolute favorite musicians
  20. A week’s worth of positive reviews and box office from the UK opening, the Easter weekend and little competition could push the four day over $100m. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
