  1. I mean it's done pretty well all things considered lol. I'm kinda sad for Love and Monsters tbh, given all the good things I've heard about it.
  2. That's... so so wrong. Life without sequels, are you kidding me?? Lol, we're in a freaking pandemic. Maybe this guy has to listen to dudalb more often.
  3. So War with Grandpa may end with around 15M or so, Honest Thief another Unhinged. I'll take it I guess
  4. For a crappy action movie with hardly any action, in the middle of a pandemic with no marketing, I guess that isn't too bad.
  5. THIS. This this this this. I remember when I worked as an usher I made the mistake of casually asking "how was it" as I was letting out Warcraft on opening night. My god I could not get rid of those dudes for like half an hour as they tried to whine to me about Warcraft lore.
  6. Idk I think this looks fun as hell. Anderson doesn't give me a ton of confidence, but the set-pieces look cool and this type of movie is right in his wheelhouse. And that is IMPRESSIVE if this is only a 40M budget (honestly would have expected 100M+ after watching that trailer). Effects and action look really good. Hoping it gets a theatrical release (whenever that is). Definitely would be a much better experience than watching this on a laptop.
  7. I think 150-200M domestic openers is the bigger question. I have no doubt that someday another movie will capture the cultural zeitgeist and have another huge amazing leggy run. But I genuinely am curious as to whether films are going to be as front-loaded going forward. Even when numbers go back to "normal" (whenever that is), I wonder whether anxieties around crowds and large gatherings will allow people to flood theatres on opening weekends of huge releases, or whether we will start to see more leggy runs in the future with smaller openings but higher multipliers.
  8. So if Tenet could have theoretically done ~200M domestic in a non-COVID world, and is instead going to do around 60M or so (depending on re-releases, etc. which New Mutants wouldn't have anyways), should we assume that in a non-COVID world, this would have done about 3-3.5x what it actually grossed? And that we could have been seeing a 25/70 type run?
  9. "Classics" like this are weird for me, because for me, they're movies that have ALWAYS been around (literally in my case, since I can remember) but to many people on this forum, this movie came out, had a box office run, an Oscars run, etc. like any other movie. I remember watching parts of this at my grandma's when I was like 4 or 5 years old, and other parts of it with my dad maybe a year later, and not knowing that they were from the same movie. I don't think I fully watched it all the way through until I was about 14 or so, and until then I had no real idea of what it was about other than knowing who the character of Forrest Gump was. And I loved it when I first saw it. It was (and still is) a pretty incredible movie. Watched it again over quarantine and while it didn't have the same impact on me that it did the first time I watched it, it's still a great movie. And Tom Hanks is pretty much immortalized as a result of this.
  10. Saw Liam Neeson's "Honest Thief". Honestly, it's pretty poorly-written, and there's hardly any action. Some of the dialogue and staging are film school level. Neeson is fine, and Jai Courtenay was fine (other than one awful scene) but it's definitely on the lowest end of Neeson actioners. OTOH, Haunting of Hill House may be my favourite thing I've watched all year.
  11. What did you think of Bly Manor? In comparison to Hill House. I'm watching Hill House right now and it's slowly becoming my favourite horror... anything.
  12. Agree, maybe the Dr. Strange stuff is more post-credits? If all PPs are in this (who knows) maybe it really is just a post-credits thing, setting up for Dr. Strange 2
  13. I mean, it would have been nice to see the post credit scene in FFH get explored in the third one (maybe have Kraven go after Peter...?) but I guess this can be cool too
