  1. Looks extremely promising so far. Can’t wait to see the actual film. As for box office, that’s definitely one hell of a budget. Even more so when you consider Washington and Pattinson are probably less expensive actors than the likes of DiCaprio/McConaughey/Bale among Nolan’s previous huge budget films. Inception adjusted is around $340M adjusted and with many less premium screens than this will likely get so that’s a good number to aim for. Depends on the films quality (which I’m sure will be great) and moreso marketing. Inception’s marketing campaign was brilliant back in the day.
  2. This has hit meme status overnight. I’m seeing a ton of memes and posts related to this across various forms of social media and obviously the more casual audiences don’t give a shit about the studio politics but they do care about Spidey in the MCU. Sony/Disney both would be stupid not to renegotiate this.
  3. Toy Story 4 is having some awesome legs! After it’s opening I didn’t expect it to pass TS3 and thought it might not even make it to $400M but I’ll be damned if it isn’t holding in there strong. It should play well through the rest of the month and will probably get the usual Disney Labor Day boost.
  4. I was iffy on seeing Hobbs & Shaw tbh but I wouldn’t mind catching this trailer in good quality and then staring at Vanessa Kirby for a couple hours.
  5. IMAX doesn’t want the IMAX experience devalued so they won’t allow an IMAX transfer of Endgame on Blu-Ray yet for years they churned out considerably less impressive LieMax venues instead of pushing their 70mm real IMAX. Idk I feel like they don’t give a shit it’s probably on Disney.
  6. SMFFH opened on discount Tuesday with no preview shows and extremely limited midnight shows. In addition to that a lot of dumbass college students that come to the bar I work at didn't think it was coming out till this weekend after the surprise when I told them I saw it today. I think it's doing well over $200M through Sunday. Fuck I wouldn't be surprised if the gross went up tomorrow. No preview gross to inflate opening day. It's been years since we've seen that.
  7. Shrek 1 is pretty solid. Definitely a product of it's time but for the most part it holds up. Shrek 2 is a very good sequel and essentially a slight improvement overall I'd say. Shrek 3 is hot garbage and I only saw like thirty minutes of the 4th one but it looked even worse. None of them hold a candle to Toy Story or most Pixar properties though.
  8. Armond White and Chris-chan's brother were the two most notable to give TS3 bad reviews.
  9. Wall-E getting a snub at the awards in 2009 was a helping hand to Up getting nominated the next year. The big change up over the next couple years was a direct response to specifically Wall-E and The Dark Knight getting passed over.
  10. Not gonna judge RPat on Twilight mainly because A.) I remember very few specifics from the ones I saw, and B.) his character was written with the personality of a carrot so I don’t think that would be the best way to judge him. Haven’t really seen any of his indie stuff either, but a lot of people that have do seem to enjoy him.
  11. Honestly if Paramount doesn’t get their shit together quickly they’re gonna end up like Fox. With Disney buying Fox I wouldn’t doubt that WarnerMedia or Comcast make a play for them.
  12. What kind of admissions are we looking at with a final gross around $900M? I don’t remember if TFA’s admissions were ever exactly stated. I know that before it though you had TDK and Avatar with both around 75 million in ticket sales. Even with 3D and all the premium formats $900M has to be around like 80-85M tickets right?
