  1. Gotta admit that before this thread, I thought Hillbilly Elegy was a goofy, Beverly Hillbillies-style comedy where Amy Adams was gonna have buck teeth or some shit. Actually reading the plot description, I'm very disappointed that's not what I'm getting.

  4. The weird obsession to delay Mulan because China is mystifying to me (don't give me the "main market" "no appeal outside China" nonsense) If you delay a movie a month from release, right on the final stretch of the marketing campaign, people are going to be confused, and every market is going to fall, and it will bomb harder than it ever would now w/out China. Besides, Disney's only gonna get a quarter of that money anyway, so a delay like that makes even less sense.
  5. Mulan tickets still aren't up here. I don't know wtf Disney is doing here. Also of note, Quiet Place Too has showtimes up as well. We'll probably get tickets up for both later this week
  6. Just at a cursory glance at ticket sales, while I have doubts over 30M+ for Invisible Man (though I guess it's not totally impossible), I doubt it'll open to Fantasy Island numbers. ~20M feels about right so far, though of course that depends on what happens later this week.

I don't care if there are advance screenings; there should have been a review bump, or at least a handful of tickets being sold. Let's hope there's a spike coming eventually.
  9. So Bad Boys doing 60M+ is still the craziest BO run so far this year, and I don't think anything will come close, barring something like Bill & Ted opening to 70M or whatever. But Call of the Wild doing 30M if Charlie's numbers indicate that would be a solid runner-up. Even something like Sonic or Birds of Prey I could at least kind of believe their openings if you told me this at the beginning of the year. But it honestly felt like nobody was talking about this movie, apart from some snickers at the CG dog, and while Disney gave it a push, it didn't feel that strong promo wise. I guess Ford really did help excite the oldies.
  10. Honestly the more I think about it, I do get why they greenlit the movie with that budget. Granted, they aren't good reasons, but when do studio execs ever have good reasons? The movie was developed before the Disney-Fox merger, which is basically a year or so out from The Jungle Book blowing people away with its live-action/CGI hybridness (TJB was mentioned by Deadline). Considering studio execs love to bank on stuff that somebody else did, why not do the same thing with mocap people pretending to be dogs and green screens, enticing people with VFX wizardry? I don't know if using motion capture was the best idea, but hey, I get that maybe they wanted to sell the movie on that. (also from what I remember in the book, it's probably for the best they went the CG route) It's probably also a situation like Robin Hood or King Arthur where people know Call of the Wild, but don't really have vested fandom interest in it, and execs don't realize the difference between "know of" and "fan of". It's a pitfall that hurts a lot of old properties when they're brought back.
  11. I'm hoping to see both soon. Lilo & Stitch is honestly one of my favorite movies ever, so I'm always excited to see what Chris Sanders does next.
  12. Also from Deadline Seems decent enough. Hail Queen Anya!
