    Jurassic World II OS Thread

    This film has definitely received less attention than it deserves.
  2. Come to think of it, both AM films were released 2-3 months following an Avengers film, and that in itself was not doing the AM franchise any favors.
  3. I've seen and enjoyed both AM films at the cinema, but this comment is so true for the majority of people.
  4. According to my calculations, Disney's 2018 WW gross is now at $6.063B. It's weird that no BO site has announced this, since it is the 3rd year in a row for the studio that it crosses $6B and only the fourth overall (the other being Universal in 2015 with $6.9B). It will probs get to $6.4B from existing films. Then my predictions for the rest are: Nutcracker: $400-700M WR2: $550-750M MP2: $600-900M Taking into account that WR2 and MP2 will be released in certain places after New Year, the range for 2018 grossess from these 3 films is $0.9–1.35B, so the range for Disney's final WW total is $7.3–7.75B.
  5. % CHANGE OF WORLDWIDE GROSS FOR MCU FIRST SEQUELS Iron Man 2: $624M vs $585M => +6.7% Thor 2: $645M vs $449M => +43.7% Captain America 2: $714M vs $371M => +92.5% Age of Ultron: $1,405M vs $1,519M => -7.5% Guardians of the Galaxy 2: $864M vs $773 => +11.8% Ant-Man 2: $600M (proj.) vs $519M => +15.6% I think it's doing just fine. The only MCU sequels that did better are those that received an "Avengers boost" (Thor 2 and Cap 2). Otherwise, sequels don't really outperform their predecessors crazily. So I think people should let the doom and gloom go. Yeah, I, too, personally thought it would make more (that's what anyone would expect coming off Infinity War), but it was a gut feeling not based on any evidence. I'm quite happy now that things have been put into perspective.
  6. Why do you think $130M. If the first one made $105M, isn't an increase expected anyway?
  7. Can we get a list of all MCU movies and grosses in euros or admissions?
  8. Are there pre-sales for Ant-Man 2? Is there any reason to suspect it won't out-gross its predecessor?
  9. Bottom line China: $377.6M (final) OS–China: $989.5M All that's can be said about the film has been said. Well done, Marvel. Can't wait for Avengers 4.
  10. The only issue is that Ralph 2 and Marry Poppins 2 open in many markets after the New Year, so it won't count towards the 2018 gross.
  11. Weekend 02–05/08/2018 Ranking Title Weekend admissions % change from last weekend Total admissions Week 1 Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again 8,852 -63.2% 152,113 3 2 Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation 6,705 -42.3% 149,526 4 3 Tout le monde debout [French] 5,991 – 5,991 1 4 C’est la vie! [French] 5,472 +127.1% 43,337 5 5 La Ch'tite famille [French] 4,409 – 4,409 1 6 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society 4,118 – 4,118 1 7 Charming 4,019 -32.7% 14,565 2 8 American Animals 3,833 +19.8% 36,474 4 9 The Darkest Minds 3,621 – 3,621 1 10 The Bookshop 3,474 +39.3% 14,975 3 Source: http://freecinema.gr/greek-box-office-closed-for-the-holidays/ What a horrific weekend! 'Mamma Mia 2' crashed once again but still managed to retain first place for a 3rd weekend in a row. It has actually dropped so badly that 'Drac Pack 3', which stayed in second place for a 3rd weekend in a row, has chances of surpassing 'Mamma Mia 2' in total admissions by the end of their runs. Three French comedies finished off the Top 5, although, as noted in the original source, the state of the Greek box office is probably funnier (if you like black humour) than the comedies themselves. 'C'est la vie!' is interestingly managing to capitalise on good word-of-mouth, and with a whole month of summer left, it could get close to 100K admissions, if cinema owners don't take it off their screens. The bottom half of the chart is as uninteresting as you'd expect. 2 films did manage to get a boost from last weekend (boy, was that 'Mamma Mia' drop hard) but it is insignificant in the grand scheme of things. 'The Darkest Minds' was a total disaster, as in the US & Canada, possibly since young people are enjoying their holidays at the beach or in their grandparents' village, rather than in the big cities.
  12. Disney is days away from crossing $6B WW for the year (total atm is north of $5.95B). This is the third year in a row it achieves this milestone. $7B by the end of the year is guaranteed. The all-time record ($7.6B) achieved by Disney is not out of reach. Same stands for $8B.
  13. We are saying the same thing. TS2 sold more tickets in total but because they were children ticket's, the gross for TS3 is higher. The other thing that is inflating the TS3 gross is 3D. Also, the adjusted figures are produced using the average ticket price, which is quite a useless figure when it comes to individual films. It's only useful to estimate the total number of admissions sold during an entire year in all cinemas across the country.
  14. Ray Subers had once written an article saying that TS3 sold fewer tickets than TS2. This means that TS3's $494M adjusted gross is less than TS2's $443M adjusted gross. Similarly, FN's $522M gross is probably more than 522*494/443 = $582M. So actually, I2 has to gross more than $582M to even have a chance. (I apologise, my $575M estimate was rough and not based on exact calculations) IMO, if I2 reaches $600M, it's probably comparable to Nemo to some extent.
