  1. So this was a year that I was completely in the dark on. Aside from Infinity War I really didn't follow any box office news, and I remember being surprised upon finding out that Aquaman and Incredibles 2 made a billion like a year after they did so lol. I'm very much looking forward to 2019, thank you @Eric Gardner!
  2. 2017 was the year that I kind of stopped coming here (and discussion boards in general) for personal reasons, so it's interesting looking back at the runs of these films and thinking that I wasn't following them from a box office standpoint but from a film goer standpoint. I remember hearing about It and Wonder Woman doing well, as well as The Last Jedi's run, but I had no idea that Beauty and the Beast was #2 or that Thor: Ragnarok was the lowest grossing of the MCU movies that year. Then stuff like Get Out and The Greatest Showman, whose runs I would have loved to follow if I had known. I'm even more removed from 2018 than 2017 when it comes to box office, so I should be getting a big history lesson then. Thank you for the write up!
  3. The amount of work that you put into these is crazy, and very much appreciated. Great write up on a big year that as you said pretty much set us on the stage to where we are today. I'm looking forward to 2017, there were a lot of big movies that I saw in that one.
  4. Great write up, Eric! So this is probably the most personal that I'll get about the reminiscing, because I remember 2015... well, not fondly, but it was an important year for my family. That February and March my dad had suffered his first two strokes (I remember the week of the first one literally beginning with the Spider-Man/MCU news and ending with him in the emergency room) which left him housebound during the spring. Then when June rolled around and he could really leave the house again, in lieu of going places as we had done in the past, he and I saw a movie nearly every weekend from then until April or so of 2016. It was a nice couple of hours of normalcy a week for us, and so while I don't really have a "personal movie" for 2015 like I have for other years (maybe Force Awakens comes the closest) I do have some great experiences that I shared with him. 2016 was probably the last year to date that I really went to see smaller films in theaters, so I'm looking forward to that. Thank you!
  5. Great write up on one of the most interesting recent years for box office (though I may be a little biased, since 2014 was my first year on here 😉 ). No billion dollar films, the biggest domestic hit wasn't a blockbuster, plenty of genre and studio representation... from Frozen taking the first weekend of the year to the Sony hack it was just a fascinating twelve months all around, and one that I'm really glad I got to be here for. Like you say it really was kind of the last year before the big films truly took over. I'm looking forward to 2015, particularly because I saw a ton of films in the theater that year.
  6. Great write ups! I wasn't on this forum until 2014 (it was actually Frozen that got me really interested in box office again in late 2013, so I suppose this is an appropriate place to come into this thread lol), but I do remember this being a big year for movies. I'm very much looking forward to seeing the next few years, quieter as though they may be in comparison. Well done!
  7. Dolittle January 20, 11 am, about 15% full AMC Disney Springs 24, Lake Buena Vista, FL Trailers: -Artemis Fowl -The Call of the Wild -Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway -Emma. -Trolls World Tour My first experience in a Dolby cinema, it was certainly something. The audience that was there seemed into it (families with very small children), and there were cheers at the end.
  8. Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker December 25, 10:30 am, about 70% full AMC Disney Springs 24, Lake Buena Vista, FL Trailers: -Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar -1917 -Free Guy -Bad Boys for Life -No Time To Die -Top Gun: Maverick -Wonder Woman 1984 -Onward -Black Widow -Mulan Pretty quiet crowd for a huge tent-pole so close to opening, but there was applause at the end. Before the movie started I popped into the 10:15 showing of Frozen II next door, and it was about 50% full.
  9. I'm very much looking forward to following this film's box office run. The first Frozen is an incredibly important movie to me, and it's run is what brought me here in the first place. I haven't seen Frozen II yet (and I don't know when I'll get the chance to) but I'll be here for it.
  10. Dunkirk July 23, 1:15 pm, about 65% full Regal Cinemas, Hyannis, MA Trailers: -American Assassin -Blade Runner 2049 -It -Kingsman: The Golden Circle -The Snowman -The Hitman's Bodyguard -Detroit -An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power -Darkest Hour I'd say the audience definitely skewed older, but honestly almost every audience that I've had seeing movies on Cape Cod has skewed older so it's really not a good demographic measurement.
