  1. Was there any audience disappointment at SLOP1 just being Toy Story meets Bolt and having mismatched characters get lost and need to get home, rather than focusing on the domestic world itself as the teasers promised? At least when Pixar or WDAS uses that formula nowadays there’s some other new hook to it, but “pets in peril” has been done so many times even before Toy Story established the “CGI buddy comedy” formula.
  2. I hope you’re only counting the first three and not the last two. Those were only released in 200-250 theaters in North America. It’s an unfair disadvantage. (That said, according to Corpse’s Japanese data, after the first movie’s series-record 6.54 million admissions, each subsequent movie dropped by around a million tickets, so the movie series was contracting in Japan too. But then attendance jumped 67% for film six...)
  3. Tony’s “If you told me ten years ago” is one that could also seem wonky because of the 5-year time skip, but it gets a pass from me because it still works if it’s referring to “before New York.” (Even though that’s 11 years ago, it’s close enough.)
  4. This proves almost nothing. Studios register web domains for titles of potential future movies all the time. It does not directly correlate to what actually gets made. I would guess it’s the same for Facebook (and Twitter; these sorts of “OMG, Title X has a Twitter, that must mean it’s happening!” gossip have happened there too). It’s the same as when unproductive films’ titles are registered for trademark; it’s to keep someone else from snatching them. (This actually happens; I’ve heard at least one story of how when some title of some movie or whatever leaked, someone registered something so the studio would have to buy it from him - essentially ransom/extortion.) It probably just means they’re considering them and/or they’re in early development, it doesn’t have to mean they are on the fast track to production right now. (And while this was made, I will never forget the insane Internet gossip when Disney registered the domain “strangemagic” and some stans thought it just had to be a working title for Frozen 2. And then it turns out it was that George Lucas animated film.)
  5. Depends on how much the new VFX costs, how much they spend on marketing, and whether or not there’s a Doritos tie-in. (Checkmate, hatters.)
  6. Forget Batman vs. Superman. Forget Godzilla vs. Kong. The world needs Nolan vs. Cameron. Two directors locked in combat to produce the most epic movie of all time.
  7. The trailer for Tenet already exists. Nolan went back in time and hid it in the trailer for the Adam Sandler movie Click. You just have to play it backwards.
  8. OK, David, now tell us how you really feel. No, I have no interest in this movie at all, not any of these live-action remakes (say what you want about superhero movies, but at least they do something new when they adapt characters, places and storylines from the comic universes that have never been committed to film before) but I still cringe at hyperbole like “photorealistic snuff film.”
