  1. Me too. I was blown away by the audacity of what Rian accomplished. Kudos to Kathleen for allowing it. I saw it 10x. I hope he gets to make his trilogy.

    Monday's Numbers

    Black Panthers long slog to the next milestone reminds me of Vanilla Sky. Greatest Showman. Hahaha. I’d love for it to stay in theaters until week 52. Also, 11 more weeks and it’ll match Titanic. Do it! $210m is more than enough to justify a 3rd Ant Man film. You have a successful sub-franchise. Close it out with a trilogy. Guaranteed money. The biggest issue by then will be where to schedule it in among stablemates like Disney live-action, Disney animation, Pixar, Indy 5, Star Wars TBD, other MCU films, Fox Marvel, Avatar, and other Fox tentpoles.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

    What did you think of the last credit scene with the ant? :)

    Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

    A credit to the MCU in that what is probably my least favorite MCU film (Ant Man and the Wasp) was still enjoyable and one that I would recommend. B
  5. Oh no Scott is stuck in the subatomic realm! the odds of a set of 3 people disappearing if the ratio is 50% is 1/8. Did I do the math right?
  6. TLJ did feel like an Episode IX didn’t it? It’s my favorite SW film since ROTJ.
  7. @Jake Gittes @Premium George I like this one: The Phantom Menace Will Never Beat Titanic's Box Office. Here's why: 6/1/99Chris Pierson In article <37eeff86....@news.earthlink.net>,Nimrod <nim...@earthlink.net> wrote:>So you're telling us why more folks went to see TITANIC than will go>see THE PHANTOM MENACE, right? You've told us why you think>one will be more popular than the other, right? In other words,>this is a popularity contest, right?>>Well, by those standards one or two things must be made very clear....>>The biggest box office film of all time is GONE WITH THE WIND.>It has sold more tickets than any other movie.>>The original STAR WARS is in second place, far ahead of TITANIC.>>Only a fool fails to take inflation into account when measuring >box office success. Of course, to be fair, one should take into account that, when GWTW was out, entertainment options were much more limited than they are today. No TV, no VCRs, no net, no video games, etc. It was pretty much books, theater and radio. Would GWTW have been _as_ successful if there had been as many diversions in its time as there are today? No. Would it have still been up there? Probably, but not at #1, given that Star Wars, which had much more competition, is less than $100 million behind it in the adjusted-for-inflation list. The problem is, the whole box office issue is _way_ too muddy to make many genuine, empirical statements about how "successful" a film is. -- Chris Pierson ** "Now my body is in tumult.

  8. https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!overview type in the search ‘tnd vs titanic’ (my fave) or ‘titanic boxoffice 1997’ or ‘phantom menace boxoffice’ or ‘sixth sense boxoffice’ or whatever you want to search for. I had no idea during the 1990s that these communities existed. At the time I frequented a couple of actual online forums. The Apollo 13 threads, in particular, really resonate with me as that was the first film that inspired my interest and that I started tracking.

    Moviepass and its Impact on the Box Office

    Love my MoviePass. Because of it I have no plans of ever paying for myself a full price 2D standard movie ticket again. I crossed the Rubicon those days are over. I respectfully understand the negative impact that sentiment, if widely shared, has on the ‘value’ of a ticket.
  10. I’m sorry but the last two posts confused me. I read both multiple times. 😊
  11. Sigh. Yea. Those links were just my personal faves anyway. Start by searching in the Search field, ‘tnd vs titanic boxoffice’ and you’ll get hooked.
  12. Stories quoting Variety’s Keri Russell article say Kasdan is co-writing the script with Abrams. I didn’t see that in the Variety story. I mean that would be great if true.
  13. Can Josh Brolin do it? Soldado + Deadpool + small indie flick (Infinity War)
  14. The more animated films the better. Hire the fired Disneytoon animators!
  15. First I heard of this movie. Even if it’s good this will likely fall under the radar.
  16. We Unbreakable fans have been clamoring for a sequel for years and to think we are finally getting one (after also getting a spin-off)
  17. Presumably since Bruce’s character is in it and would provide the superhero element (Can I tell you how excited I am that we finally have Unbreakable sequels). But who knows what Shyamalan has in mind.
  18. I was on the set! Sneaked on but turned away by security before I could see anything juicy. They were shooting at Landmark Mall in Alexandria.
  19. Does the $125m include marketing though? Also, sometimes distribution deals can offset costs
  20. Nice. Noticed you had 1 and 3 together. JJ Abrams is often accused of parroting and mimicking previous entries. Do you feel 3 (directed by JJ) was very similar to 1 or you just happened to like them at the same level?
  21. Welcome I2 to the top ten. With this weekend hold, it is all but assured. Also means a measly two films in the top 10 being Star Wars.
  22. Please bring back 1990s Carrey! Hope this paved the way for live action Mario (take two), Zelda and Pokémon live action movies. Haha
