  1. Who should score the Avatar sequels? If not John Williams or Zimmer, then James Newton Howard of course. The current darlings are Michael Giacchino and Alexandre Desplat but I think JNH ranks above them all. The Lady in the Water soundtrack, for example, is one for the ages. Up there with any score not named Star Wars (classical trilogy) and Lord of the Rings. Signs, Unbreakable and The Village were also stellar. As well as Sixth Sense (main theme).
  2. Biggest bomb of 2018

    it was Russia's fault
  3. Wait, an actual novel? It'll never happen. You'll never finish it. (there, I gave you adversity so in future post-publishing interviews you can say people doubted you could do it but you did it...lol) :-P No seriously, what inspired you? Relevant article here (I got the author a writing position there so I guess this is a shameless plug): https://www.the-numbers.com/news/228750830-Analysis-Why-Havent-There-Been-Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-Copycats
  4. Biggest bomb of 2018

    Hard to say without budget information but Venom, Mortal Engines and Alita are contendahs'
  5. I'm beginning to come around to the BP for #1 of the Year projection. It would have to have one of the worst legs in the MCU to not get to $487m (#10 slot)https://www.the-numbers.com/news/229020 ... Movie-Legs The topic for this week will be BP's legs. Movie / OW / final gross / multiplier: Guardians of the Galaxy $94,320,883 $333,172,112 3.53 Ant-Man $57,225,526 $180,202,163 3.15 Iron Man $102,118,668 $318,604,126 3.12 The Avengers $207,438,708 $6232,79,547 3.00 Spider-Man: Homecoming $117,027,503 $334,201,140 2.86 Thor $65,723,338 $181,03,0624 2.75 Doctor Strange $85,058,311 $232,641,920 2.74 Captain America: The Winter Soldier $95,023,721 $259,746,958 2.73 Captain America: The First Avenger $65,058,524 $176,654,505 2.72 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 $146,510,104 $389,813,101 2.66 Thor: Ragnarok $122,744,989 $314,444,124 2.56 Iron Man 2 $128,122,480 $312,433,331 2.44 The Incredible Hulk $55,414,050 $134,806,913 2.43 Thor: The Dark World $85,737,841 $206,362,140 2.41 Avengers: Age of Ultron $191,271,109 $459,005,868 2.40 Iron Man 3 $174,144,585 $408,992,272 2.35 Captain America: Civil War $179,139,142 $408,084,349 2.28
  6. Why Marvel films have legs

    Good analysis on why MCU films have leggy runs https://www.the-numbers.com/news/229020830-Analysis-What-Gives-a-Marvel-Movie-Legs
  7. BP could have the legs to get into the top 10 ($488m). Wow Maze Runner 3 will be profitable due to a great OS run. TGS will be profitable too. Reaching $180m DOM Jumanji will surpass $400m. Wow 50 Shades 3 will be profitable.
  8. Good film. Really stood out for me. The type that sticks in your mind. You don’t forget it. Too bad this is DDL’a swan song.
  9. Samson (2018)

    Nice! Love to hear stories like that (hope you weren’t kidding).
  10. B+ Much of what I could have written has been said above. A couple of quick points: I thought the fight scenes were poorly shot and hard to follow and I wish the scale was grander. Overall though Black Panther is firmly entrenched in the top half of MCU films. No small feat.
  11. Deadpool? Jurassic World 2 Incredibles 2 Solo? ??
  12. One of these days we will figure out how to determine and track the 'boxoffice' for Netflix/Amazon/etc films and shows.
  13. Far from "loving it" or far from "me being the only one" ?
  14. Am I the only one who gets LIKES to ancient posts from @Blank Panther ? I love it.
  15. Good article on the lack of copycats for what is now a billion dollar franchise. Namely, 50 Shades. https://www.the-numbers.com/news/228750830-Analysis-Why-Havent-There-Been-Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-Copycats On the outside that would seem an anomaly. Here’s insightful analysis on the ‘why’
  16. Was TGS a fluke?

    https://www.the-numbers.com/news/228540830-Analysis-Films-Like-The-Greatest-Showman-Should-Be-Considered-Trendsetters-Not-Flukes Good article on what TGS is and what it isn’t. With such staying power and durability it’s natural to try to make sense of what drives its success, in a historical context
  17. Now that Cloverfield 3 will not be opening on the same weekend as Rampage, it will have a little more breathing room before Avengers 3. With that said San Andreas, another summer popcorn release, made over $150m. I don’t see Skyscraper getting there but $100-120m seems reasonable given the precedent and release window. Rampage in April/May will top out at $80-$100m. Skyscraper
