  1. Armond White and Chris-chan's brother were the two most notable to give TS3 bad reviews.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Fuck it, why not. It’ll open around Dory, maybe slightly under. If WOM is good it’ll easily cross $400M.
  5. 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?
  6. I think people might be overestimating Friday increase and underestimating Saturday increase.
  7. After all the shit Liman has gone through with execs I just wish I could pitch him a script to a movie based on one of the Final Fantasy games and watch as it ends up amazing
  8. Just bought tickets to see Endgame in our premium theater with my family this Saturday morning at 11:00am and it’s already like 70-80% sold through.
  9. So we’re looking at $450M by Wednesday, $500M by Friday, and over $600M by Sunday. Fucking insane.
  10. That’s just the evolution of box office. When TDK came out it’s midnight showings were far more limited than that of the preview shows today. Ditto for ROTS, SM3, DMC and the other hard hitters of that era. One cool thing to think about is Iron Man in 2008 actually got Thursday night previews before they were a thing. It did $3.5M. Literally 1/100th of what Endgame did OW. Idk the growth of the MCU is a fascinating thing. The overseas box office in particular has come a long way since the original trio’s films.
  11. WB/DC’s second (hopefully much better) attempt at a Justice League in the next ten or so years maybe? Avatar 5 assuming 2-4 are surprisingly necessary and universally praised? Idk. In 2008 very few, if any saw the MCU taking off the way it did. In 2012 very few guessed it would continue sustaining/growing in the way that it did. I think it’s gonna have to be something with potential writing on the wall for a blockbuster success, but not something necessarily expected to be that huge.
  12. Yeah, Matrix Reloaded, Spider-Man 2, and Revenge of the Sith probably all would’ve broken the record had they opened on a Friday. I’m not sure if Eclipse and Transformers 2 would have but they would’ve definitely come very close. EDIT: Makes me wonder why midweek openings were such a hot commodity in the mid-2000’s through early 2010’s. I guess studios mindset was “hey we might not take the OW record but we can get a nice headline being the top Wednesday or Thursday opener”
