  1. I think it inevitable that Endgame slows down a little quicker than some of the other Marvel movies with that huge opening it had. Casual fan's of the Marvel film's like myself went out and saw it in the first few days to avoid stumbling upon spoilers, but won't necessarily watch again at the cinema.
  2. Despite their flaws, one of the best parts of the prequels were there fights. Lightsabre battles in Episode 1 and 3 were epic. Jedi actually looked decent fighters in those films. Shame they reverted back with the fighting in the new films. I recon the prequels would have done better in markets like China than the new films as they were big in scope, bit fake looking, but massive action.
  3. $10.3m is the reported 4 day opening for Solo in the UK, so quite a bit more than was mentioned earlier by rth. Even if the number is true, it's still dreadful.
  4. Solo's performance is staggering. It seems to be performing far below even the lowest numbers people predicted for it. Possibly scraping $200m overseas and $200 domestic is truly terrible for Star Wars. Is below $400m worldwide possible? This has gotta be the biggest box office flop I've ever seen for such a popular franchise.
  5. So much money wasting at Disney on Solo. Costing north of $300m, but when you watch the film, you'd think they'd have been able to make the film for half that. There are no out of this world set pieces in the film and theres no huge name actors to pay. Should have just stuck with the first directors instead of reshooting 60-80% (depending on what you read) of the film.
  6. Shockingly bad, below even the low expectations. Just goes to show, you can't just throw anything out with the Star Wars name brand even in the UK & US and expect it to dominate the box office.
  7. Painful watch seeing a Star Wars move completely fail everywhere, even in it's biggest markets of the US and UK. I don't think the failure of Solo is down to TLJ though, i think it's mainly a combination of being a simply uninteresting concept for most, one of the worst marketing campaigns ever for a "big" film and being released only 5 months after the last Star wars. Hopefully Disney thinks twice about making prequels to characters we already know the fate of, or at least if they do, make one that fans have actually called for. I'm hoping they scrap all the spin-offs now and concentration on original stories and actually include some of the things that make Star Wars cool, like f***in lightsabre battles. It's been 13 years since a decent lightsabre battle in a Star Wars film and nearly 20 years since a great one!
  8. Any indications of Thursdays numbers for UK? Seat bookings for Solo tonight at my local Cineworld look pretty good. Mostly just rubbish seats left, apart from the late show. Not looking as good at the local VUE though, but has more showtimes.
  9. Must have really needed to go. There was a lull in action right before the Darth Maul scene and I said just go no. I had no idea Darth Maul was about to enter the fray!
  10. My friend went to the toilet once during Solo, and it was for the entire Darth Maul scene. When he returned he thought I was bullshitting him.
  11. How important are Maoyan scores to box office in China? Lets say Solo started very bad like it sounds like it is going to, but got 8.5 Maoyan rating, would that help drastically?
  12. Think $140m for 4 day opening seems reasonable. BoxOffice is tracking it 4 day with same range as Deadline too.
  13. Agree with that. At VUE Star City Birmingham and Cineworld I've had Jurassic World trailers with every film I have seen since The Last Jedi.
  14. A lot bigger than the FA Cup final when England play in WC. When England play in the World Cup, you get Royal Wedding sort of standstill, even though everyone always ends up disappointed. TV viewing figures will be high, but numbers watching will be much higher as many people watch the games in pubs.
  15. Yep, Disney seems to have really messed up with marketing on this here. Think they are presuming because it's Star Wars it will just be huge anyway. But I have spoken to people who didn't even know this movie existed, let alone that it's out this week. At my local VUE, I've have not seen too many film's this year, but have not seen a Solo trailer before any films.
