  1. People underestimate just how big Shrek used to be. Shrek 2 held the domestic animated record for 12 years. Not even TS3 or Frozen could reach it despite having years of inflation and 3D. And thanks to the Shrek is love, Shrek is life memes the franchise is still in people's minds. IMO a really good Shrek 5 could definitely do Incredibles 2 numbers (at least domestically).
  2. Almost a 40% increase for JW2!
  3. So JW2 increased from overseas estimates again? Nice.
  4. JW2 has so far always increased quite a bit throughout the weekend. I think that's a positive sign for word-of-mouth and it shows that the movie appeals to families, too.
  5. Adding my two Cents to the temperature debate: I do prefer heat over cold, but only reasonably hot, like 25-30C. Anything much more than that, especially 40C+ like it seems to be in Canada right now is awful, especially if you have to work. The usual temperatures in Spring and Autumn are very nice, though. Ideal to walk around in the nature without sweating or freezing.
  6. So with an opening in the high 140s 400m total isn't dead yet. Hopefully it can manage to get there in the end.
  7. Hopefully it hits 60m Friday and 150m for the weekend. If it does, 400m total will be back on, which would be great considering all the doom and gloom over the past few weeks.

    It won't impact family audiences because Kids are unlikely to watch cam rips. However, I2 seems to skew more adult-friendly than most other animated films, so that might hurt it somewhat. Won't change the fact that this movie is a gigantic hit, though.
  9. I still don't understand why some people actually thought JW: FK would open below $100m. This is not a CBM or a Star Wars movie where a lack of online hype is worrying. Jurassic Park is one of the most GA-friendly franchises around and it will most likely remain that way going forward. I remember three years ago nobody expected JW to beat AoU, much less breaking the OW record at the time. But it seems like people have learned nothing since then.

    No, it won't. Overseas looks to finish with at least 700m when all is said and done (probably more) and domestically it won't make less than 300m. 1 Billion is locked.
  11. Wow! That's an insane preview number for Incredibles 2? The question is how high can it go. It must be more frontloaded than most other animated films, but Dory's record is still easily going down, it seems.
  12. So Deadpool 2 will hit 300m after all? I knew people were overreacting to its second weekend drop. Look what happened to Spider-Man: Homecoming. A drop right around 50% would actually be okay-ish for Solo, but it won't change the movie's fate as a gigantic disappointment. Solid number for Ocean's 8. Should ultimately beat O12 and O13's totals.
  13. I think Solo flopping is only going to help the other movies coming out soon, most notably Ocean's 8, Incredibles 2 and Jurassic World 2. I could see those films combining for $1b+ domestically.
  14. The MCU definitely is the biggest brand in the world. As if it wasn't clear before, Infinity War cemented that fact big time. Star Wars on the other hand...
  15. I'm just gonna take a random guess and say that the Church Fight in the first Kingsman film is number 1. Just because it's one of my personal favorites, but also because it's a true cinematic work of art IMO.
