  1. I'm going to look at a few little positive things in all of this. 1. I believe this is a decent test run to prepare ourselves for a widespread outbreak of something much more dangerous than COVID-19. Think more along the lines of bird flu or Ebola virus, with a kill rate in the neighborhood of 50% or higher. It is pretty clear that we are not prepared very well to deal with these scenarios. I think we can learn a lot from what's happening right now. Hopefully this leads to stronger policies for public health around the world. 2. With a much smaller number of cars on the road at the moment, I hope this means a lot fewer traffic accidents and obviously a lot fewer deaths from those accidents. 3. IT departments for companies all over the world are being forced to step up their technology game so employees can work from home. I think that's a positive development for employees. Maybe it eventually gives us more freedom in the job market, where you don't need to live in the same city as your company to have a job with them.
  2. Clusterfuck of epic proportions for the economy. This is like a nuclear bomb being dropped on all of society.
  3. I like the director and cast, but so far not really fired up to see the movie. That's a pretty crazy statement coming from me. I've probably watched the 1989 film about 1,000 times over the last 31 years. Batman is my favorite character, but maybe just grew out of it over time and also a little burned out on the superhero genre after Marvel and DC have both unleashed an onslaught of these movies in the last 5 years.
  4. Pretty damn impressive numbers for Sonic. Was expecting it to be a flop.
  5. Still haven't seen the Joker movie, but did revisit Gladiator recently. Phoenix was really, really damn good in Gladiator. He knows how to make the audience hate him.
  6. Skywalker's domestic day 25 gross is about 62% of Rogue One's domestic day 25 gross. If that continues, it will finish around $512M.
  7. Glad he's finally admitting it won't beat Lion King's $543M. He said it was "locked" to go above $543M as recently as a week ago, even though all of us here have been expecting below Rogue One for the last couple weeks.
  8. Rewatched it this weekend for the first time in years. Hell of a movie!!! I have to say Connie Nielsen was damn good in this. The primary male actors both received a lot of credit for their excellent work, but I am surprised Connie did not receive an Oscar nomination.
  9. $30M+ is a damn good opening, especially when you think about the strong legs this should have during awards season.
  10. Expansion of China market is very helpful. We are 5+ years after Interstellar, which made pretty good money in China at the time. Same statement applies with 10 years for Inception. If this movie has anywhere near the audience reception of those two films, I would think there is a pretty good chance it will make more money in China than Interstellar (thanks to the market expanding every year).
  11. You nailed it again. Thanks!
  12. Happy for this movie's success. It's nice to see a non-franchise movie turn out great across the board, including the financials.
