  1. Dedication is exactly what I thought when I saw that. Also, I love Elsa in the 3D glasses.

If I predicted the Top 10 ranking correctly, I'll be shocked. >Frozen II, Kaiji: Final Game, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be battling it out in the Top 3. All three films were close last weekend with Kaiji debuting in 1st in revenue but Frozen II being 1st in admissions, but Star Wars wasn't far behind either film. Kaiji will probably have the bigger drop this weekend, while Frozen II should have the better hold, so I'm going with Frozen II winning the weekend. But it's going to be close. And speaking of Frozen II... Unless it has a better hold than I'm predicting (it really needs a 20/25% decline), we can likely rule out it reaching the ¥15 billion ($140 million) milestone after this weekend. It's been holding fine post the holidays, but not good enough. Meaning, it'll be on course for ¥14 billion ($130 million) and make the showdown between it and Weathering With You a nail bitter for sure. >Parasite, unsurprisingly, is targeting either a very strong hold, as in sub-10%, or a possible small increase which I'm predicting. Reviews are strong, audience scores are high, and the film was released after winning many awards and then being nominated for six Oscars. It's going to thrive for several weeks to come. >Last Letter will be the top debut this weekend (unless one of the limited anime films has an unknown fan greeting event I'm not aware of that really boosts their attendance and ticket prices), but won't open to anything remarkable. It's just that time of year with plenty of mediocre openers. >High School Fleet and Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul are both limited release anime films, which are always difficult to predict. They tend to have dedicated fanbases, and as such, their average ticket prices are typically very high, so I'm treating both of them as I would any other limited anime release. >My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising will probably fall outside the Top 10 this weekend, but I'm going to include it here just in case it manages to hang on. And because it's receiving a 4DX expansion next weekend which could keep it in the Top 10 for another weekend.

  5. Well, it surprised me, and I remember hearing audible gasps from other members of the audience at his reveal. Then again, I've never been the type of person to watch a movie actively looking for a plot twist.
  6. I agree 100% with you. Into the Unknown is an okay song, but songs that are just okay don't win awards nor do they attract people to the theater. Disney was kind of in a no win situation with this. I think the only reason they didn't push Show Yourself and release the entire sequence on YouTube is because it's a major spoiler.
  7. Two thoughts regarding the Frozen 2 Sing-along: The release date is two weeks earlier than the release of the Frozen Sing-along in 2013, which was January 31st. I guess Disney thinks Frozen 2 needs the boost now, whereas Frozen continued to have great legs and didn't need any help through the month of January. I'll be really curious to hear how the sing-along for The Next Right Thing goes. Not exactly an upbeat, sing-along type of song!

  9. It's never okay to be racist.
  10. Seems like there are three groups of people when it comes to Frozen: Loved/obsessed with the movie Thought it was good/okay, but not better than most Disney movies Hated it. Thought it was completely overrated. Frozen has a very dedicated fanbase made up primarily of people in the first group. They may never Let It Go, and will happily go Into the Unknown again whenever Disney releases Frozen 3.
  11. I'm surprised that people still get this wrong. The Frozen movie franchise does not only appeal to little girls. If that were the case, Frozen 2 would not have been so successful. The original Frozen was a documented 4 quadrant success, breaking the mold of typical Disney princess films. If anything, Frozen 2 appealed more to other demographics than the first movie, with a darker, more complex storyline. I saw the movie again this past Thursday, and out of around 30 people in the theater, there was only one little girl. The rest were couples of all ages, and a few groups of high school and college age girls. Whenever it happens, Frozen 3 will do just fine.
  12. Wow! So even with a much less favorable ER, Frozen 2 still smashed Frozen 1's OW in US$! Incredibly impressive number! What should we expect for legs in Brazil?
