  1. I don't get the comparison at all. They feel like very different characters/performances. It looks like the new movie is trying to humanize the Joker, whereas Ledger and Nolan wanted him to be a force of nature like the shark in Jaws.
  2. Suicide Squad made a boatload of money. Joker was heavily featured in the marketing for that movie.
  3. I don't think this Joker will be very similar to Ledger's version. They seem pretty different from the footage and reviews we have seen.
  4. Hell of a year. My favorites are Batman, Major League, When Harry Met Sally, Indy 3, Turner & Hooch, Field of Dreams, and Shrunk the Kids.
  5. Yes, LieMAX is just a nickname but it is specifically for smaller IMAX branded screens. Museum theaters that changed their projector from IMAX to something else can use the phrase “giant screen.”
  6. Thanks Charlie! Your efforts are much appreciated. Seems we are looking at a weekend total around $190m. Could go as high as $195m if it can pull a Sunday drop similar to TDK.
  7. People would call you an idiot 10 years ago if you said a Lion King remake would open to 50% of an Avengers opening. Pretty crazy what Marvel has been able to do. Disney is laughing all the way to the bank in both cases.
  8. Something else. The Large Format Examiner website lists those type of screens based on the projector brand. LieMAX is unique to IMAX brand.
  9. These days you can get some pretty awesome theater brand PLF screens. There is a place in southwest Houston that features 6 screens at 85 feet wide. They are maybe 45 feet tall. It’s not 60 feet of height like the old school real IMAX screens, but still pretty badass. And 6 of them at one location, meaning people have a variety of different movies to watch on those huge screens.
  10. It’s rare to see a new installation of real IMAX these days. Theater owners don’t want to pay the extra money to build them the right way.
  11. Still pretty huge risk when you are throwing around numbers like $170m for production. Tack on marketing and the fact they don't get anywhere near 100% (or even 70%) of the global box office, it is pretty damn risky to spend this type of money unless you have a mega franchise scenario. Of course $170m budget is not considered that big of a deal nowadays when we are seeing some of these franchise movies hit $300m budgets without blinking. Still though...$170m is a shitload of money IMHO. Haha
  12. The marketing showed him more than his actual involvement in the Squad movie. I don't think that movie would have made anywhere near the money it did without them pushing a Joker angle on it even though he's barely in the movie.
