  1. It's interesting to compare Avengers AOU and Black Panther which both grossed very similar numbers worldwide : Black Panther : $700.1 million DOM, $646.9 million OS. AOU : $459 million DOM, $943.8 million OS. And that's despite a much better critical reception for the former, which unfortunately kind of proves my point. I agree about representation obviously, my post is precisely criticizing the fact that people all over the world, even subconsciously, see themselves in white people and "white stories" but not in black, asian or hispanic stories and pe
  2. Why is no one addressing the elephant in the room here? Does anyone think it's a coincidence that virtually all the highest grossing animated movies featuring humans feature all-white or almost all-white casts ? Does anyone here think "Warm" featuring a black princess in a far-away African kingdom would have done half as well as "Frozen" ? Of course it wouldn't, and we all know why. Hell "The Princess and the Frog" didn't even gross $300 million while "Tangled" grossed nearly $600 million a year later, so it's nothing new I'm afraid.

  9. Given how leggy Japan can be, could even push the fun into 2021. Corpse : I've never put together a biggest 3-day opening weekend chart since Japan is a 2-day, Sat.-Sun., opening weekend market, and until just the past couple of years, Japanese films opened on Saturdays. And Hollywood films would also open on Saturdays sometimes, especially before 2006/2007 when it was common.So putting together this chart would most just comprise of Hollywood films released between 2006-present, with a few Japanese films thrown in after they began opening on Fridays in 2017/2018.Howeve

  13. According to Corpse, nothing : It has a November release date in Thailand. That's the only confirmed date so far to my knowledge. Well, it's supposed to be released in the U.S. in early 2021, but I'm doubting that.And who knows where it could end up in Japan. This is such an unprecedented opening, and not just because it's breaking all the records, it's by just how much it's beating them by. A ¥20 billion ($200 million) total would be "expected" from a regular ole multiplier with how high its opening, and given the status the film has achieved, and its reception so far, it could do

  18. You can have a partial quarantine. Encourage the elderly and those with underlying conditions to remain quarantined, but allow the majority of the population who remain unaffected by this to continue on living and develop immunity. To punish the entire population because a small % of the population could die is insane. If to continue living normally I have to put off seeing my grandmother for a year, that's fine with me.
  19. But the flu kills thousand each years. If the coronavirus kills 2 or 3 times as many people as the flu, it will be sad, but hardly worth stopping the world over.
  20. In France, my workplace has put us on forced paid leave. I keep going out despite the lockdown (printed 3 authorizations yesterday alone : groceries, running x 2) and nothing has happened. I don't see why the government should be allowed to prevent me from going where I please. I want to remind people that there are probably 10 times as many cases in the wild compared to the official numbers, so the morality rate is probably around 0,3%. It's ridiculous how people are willing to accept totalitarian-like measures just because of fear and media propaganda. I must say I do enjoy the
  21. Humans can't control everything. There have been epidemics since the dawn of humanity and there will continue to be. It's actually a good opportunity for some modesty and introspection.
  22. I'm not discarding them. My parents are boomers. I would be very sad to see them die. I would also be very sad to see them die of heart failure, whatever type of cancer, the flu, or God knows what else. The coronavirus is just another illness to add to the list. On the other hand a disease killing the youth would be much more dramatic in that they are virtually unaffected by other common illnesses, or when they are they don't die. With aging the likelihood of death increases and it's just something we have to accept.
  23. Sure, but the 75-100M people that will get it in the US most likely include the asymptomatic cases. Therefore you have to use the mortality rate including asymptomatic cases.
