  1. I don't see a path for it, or any movie, to pass 285. Give it another five years, and a major event movie might have a chance at 300.
  2. My answer to this is the same as to every other $300M OW club: Not A Chance. The market as it exists simply cannot support that sort of weekend for a single movie.
  3. So why does all the promotional stuff I've seen for this recently say that it was "nominated" for an Academy Award? Do they not realize that they won?

    Best Animated Feature 2018 - Predictions

    I've added this year's nominations to my ongoing graph, and based on past performance, there appear to be two serious contenders: the one that made all the money, and the one that actually deserves it.
  5. I put this in an earlier "[whatever movie] over 300M OW" club thread, and it's still relevant:
  6. It's just like how the three games that were the main settings of the first movie were originals, while all the minor ones were real-world games.
  7. Recently had the chance to see it in my local 70mm IMAX theater. While the giant screen was nice for a few scenes, it didn't really add much value to the movie as a whole. Also, it turns out that film is not always superior. During the silent scene, I could clearly hear the projector clicking away, which kind of spoiled the moment.
  8. It needs about 6x its latest weekend. At this point in the run, most movies are lucky if they get 2x. This coming weekend with the Ant-Man release is make-or-break.
  9. There were only about a half dozen of us in the theater when I saw it today. Pity, since it's well worth seeing.
  10. When you want to correct an imbalance, you need to pay attention to the things that form that imbalance.
  11. I think that reaction says more about you than about the movie. Key line: "People might just need a little old fashioned."
  12. Father's Day weekend, plus a movie with themes of fatherhood. That's the common factor for the movies that increased that weekend.
  13. I wouldn't hold out too much hope, given that they still call animation a genre.
