  1. Felt like the trailer gave so much away, particularly the dynamic between Lisbeth and the other female lead. Also, in the scene where the abusive husband gets his legs caught in the noose, I kept asking myself how she knew he would stand in the right spot. Lol. Movie looks great. Again, I hope the trailer I saw is not giving too much away.
  2. Cage is such a punchline nowadays that I hope this film goes well for him (boxoffice, buzz).
  3. Yep. Just as the original films came out in separate years , Aladdin and TLK should spread out. Keep Dumbo where it is. I thought that was the plan ( Jungle Book 2016, BaTB 2017...). We dont know how far along Lion King is with its production. If the FX work needs more time then that film could push to 2020. Good point re: GOTG. There is a vacuum that needs to be filled. I’m certain either TLK or Aladdin will move to fill that 2020 slot.
  4. Thanks as always. My response was more as a reaction to his phrasing which suggested that ‘bombing hard in OS’ was a bad thing. Perfectly ok to have a film just do well in its domestic market, as long as it churns a profit.
  5. Won’t matter. It’ll make enough here to get close to break even or a small profit.
  6. Anyone else think this will push to late 2019 or 2020? Very little seen or heard about this film.
  7. Eking ever so closely to $100m. Will it get there? Hmmm...
  8. Warner Bros is having a great 2nd half of the year. This will break out. $35m/$117m
  9. It's been a life passion of mine to make a film based on 1. Book of Revelations 2. adaptation of This Present Darkness. Any ideas out there that would make great faith based films?

    An Upset is Born : A Star is Born over Venom DOM

    Didn’t pay close attention to the club title. My numbers were for OW. Still out.

    An Upset is Born : A Star is Born over Venom DOM

    Probably too low on Venom. Might revise later. Doesn’t help that I avoid the trailers. Alot depends on the quality. Not an assured success for an October ‘superhero’ film featuring a moderately known character. What’s your prediction for both?
  13. Yea baby! While this mission was a first for all mankind the program had a very America-centric focus given the geopolitical balance at the time. Fortunately one film won’t diminish this accomplishment.

    An Upset is Born : A Star is Born over Venom DOM

    Out. OW: Venom - $42m A Star is Born - $28m
  15. Oh my. Totally forgot about Solo. 😁 between RO and TPM
  16. Is this a popular book/series? Also, did not know Goosebumps 2 was even a thing let alone coming out in weeks.
  17. My ranking: ESB ROTJ ANH Episode IX - my optimistic guess TLJ TFA ROTS RO TPM AOTC
  18. If it can hang on long enough to get a Nutcracker/Wreck it Ralph 2 double feature boost $100m is possible.
  19. Incredible right!? 1994 had two (Gump and Lion King). Next year might see four (Lion King remake, Ep 9, Avengers 4, Toy Story 4)
  20. Not aware of any of those signs...
  21. YTD 2018 compared to prior years: https://www.boxofficemojo.com/yearly/?view2=ytdcompare&view=releasedate&p=.htm and then here are upcoming releases: https://www.the-numbers.com/movies/release-schedule Despite the strong YTD performance of 2018 (10.2% ahead of 2017), 3.5% ahead of 2016), we could actually fall behind 2017 come Dec 31st. There are films this fall/winter that will certainly do well but no blockbusters like Star Wars that will move the needle and get us to the $11 billion mark. Maybe I'm missing something....
