  1. Such overreaction. Over-compensating political correctness or they want to avoid what they feel will be devastating press.
  2. My gut says $20-$30m for both Kingsman2 and Ninjago but maybe the consensus is right ($32m+ for both).
  3. IW because of its release date. More room to breathe than JW2.

    Rread the wiki plot. I wonder why it would be Neptune. Radio signals perhaps. Triton has geysers suggesting a warm interior so maybe possible life signatures were found there. I hope we don't see a scene where characters are landing on the planet.
  5. While I don't want Hollywood to have a knee jerk reaction after IT's success and assume we just want more Stephen King movies (ignoring the fact IT was successful because it was a good movie), I do want a re-do of Dark Tower. An HBO series perhaps.
  6. Wednesday Numbers: 7.9 M IT

    IT has the advantage of superior WOM. It's a phenomenon at this point. $310-330m final DOM
  7. Tuesday Numbers: IT 11.4 M

    It's amazing to me that in the last 10 years Disney has only come out on top once (2016). I once assumed they were dominant this whole time (except for 2015 when Universal had that banner year). Just once. The future is bright, regardless, when you own properties the likes of Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Disney animation and Disney live action.
  8. This would be better for an early December release. Strange that IT and mother! Are releasing so close.
  9. Tuesday Numbers: IT 11.4 M

    Audience: we liked IT because it was a well crafted movie Hollywood: they want more Stephen King movies

  11. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are headed back to the big screen. http://herocomplex.latimes.com/movies/mighty-morphin-power-rangers-lionsgate-preps-big-screen-return/
  12. What are the most overrated films since January 2016?
  13. I don’t want to risk 80 people’s jobs just so I can say I have big nuts. - Danny Trejo on actors who do their own stunts instead of stuntmen (not saying I 100% agree with him)
  14. That little girl may grow up thinking she can be a wonder woman in her own way - that's great. awesome marketing.

  16. Please be careful Tom Cruise. Let stuntmen do your stunts. Let them do their jobs and have a job.
  17. And prayerfully, encourage more original movies (this film is based on a comic series but few people in the world know about them so.....:)
  18. That's like saying, if Robert Rodriguez puts together an enjoyable movie that will appeal to the masses in a way that compels them to take out their pocketbooks then the track record doesn't matter. Well, of course but we're speculating and all I have to go off of is a track record (both the financial performance and overall reception to his films). Half of the MCU directors had track records filled with smaller films yet their MCU movies have done well and are likely very profitable. I look forward to being pleasantly surprised.
  19. For what many expect will be one of the highest grossing movies in the history of film ($700m+), there doesn't seem to be a lot of buzz surrounding Episode 8. In fact, my spidey sense is up on Episode VIII although I can't pinpoint why. I had it even before the OK trailer (I say this as a huuuuge SW fan). Some possible reasons (I could be totally wrong and the hype is indeed, real): 1. Like Avatar, the cultural shockwaves from TFA didn't last long. The film didn't "stick" with people and TLJ suffers for it 2. Relatively tepid reaction to the first trailer 3. Less hype because it is a sequel to a movie that came out only 1.5 yrs ago at this point (Rogue One even sooner) 4. Somewhat related to #3 but possible franchise fatigue Hope my vague concerns are misplaced and we see a 90% RT score and $800m DOM
  20. Hope you're right. I look forward to getting a different result than Solaris and Strange Days (James Cameron produced films that he did not also direct).
  21. I wasn't talking about RR as a draw but his directing. His ability to make a successful profitable $200m movie. The bolded text is exactly the point. Besides Sin City, he doesn't have a track record of delivering on those things AND drawing in large mainstream audiences.
  22. Me too. The first one was "cute" and something new. Warner Bros. (and all the non-Disney studios) are furiously chomping at the bit for any new cash cows that they overindulged (two back to back spinoffs and a sequel in 2019), thinking that they had a lucrative tentpole for years to come. Ninjago will struggle to reach $150m dom
  23. Smaller/Medium films are going to be his niche for the foreseeable future I think. He's a fantastic actor....just not a big draw.
