  1. Based on recent comments from Cameron don't be surprised if Alita gets turned into a series for Disney +, he seems a lot more open to this concept than he has in the past.
  2. Domestic numbers to date are nowhere near enough to make up the loss, hopefully the rental PPV & Foreign markets are significantly stronger. It's not looking good on the surface.
  3. I'm not buying that, the ending feeds directly into a sequel(s), they (Landau, Cameron, RR, Rosa) talked about it a lot (trilogy). Cameron is the one who warned everybody that if it doesn't make enough $ that will be it. I think RR was waiting or told to wait until the digital/physical release to see if it would catch fire and make enough to put the movie into the black. If Alita moves forward it won't be with RR as director, this new project will probably eat up 2 years of his time. Right now it's not looking good.
  4. Not sure if this affects the possibility of a sequel but Robert Rodriguez is moving on to another project with Netflix. Robert Rodriguez to Direct Netflix Superhero Movie Starring Priyanka Chopra & Pedro Pascal Robert Rodriguez and Netflix are getting into the superhero business together with a new sci-fi fantasy film We Can Be Heroes. Rodriguez is set to write, direct and produce the original film, with Priyanka Chopra starring and a supporting cast that includes Christian Slater, Boyd Holbrook, Sung Kang, and Pedro Pascal. From the sound of it, We Can Be Heroes... See more »
  5. Some good news for Alita. https://www.mediaplaynews.com/alita-battles-on-tops-disc-sales-for-second-week/ ‘Alita’ Battles On, Tops Disc Sales for Second Week JOHN LATCHEM August 8, 2019 The 20th Century Fox sci-fi actioner Alita: Battle Angel was No. 1 for a second consecutive week on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Aug. 3. The top three on both charts were unchanged from the previous week. Lionsgate’s Hellboy remake was No. 2 in its second week, followed by Warner’s Shazam! in its third. The week’s top newcomer, the animated UglyDolls from Universal Pictures and STX Entertainment, debuted at No. 4 on both charts. Another newcomer, the Lionsgate political romantic comedy Long Shot, entered the campaign at No. 5 on both charts. The Sony Pictures thriller The Intruder bowed at No. 6 on the overall sales chart and No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart.
  6. Here's a great clip (Blu ray extra) explaining The Fall and Alita's origins. This alone would make for a great prequel.

  9. Lots of negativity and little talk about the extra 30 minutes running time vs the original which means it's not a 100% shot for shot remake.
  10. A surprising number are....entire religions treat women with total disdain so it's not surprising that a large number of men have little to no respect for women.
  11. Headed to San Diego Comic Con. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/arnold-schwarzenegger-showcase-terminator-dark-fate-at-comic-con-1222177 Stars Linda Hamilton, Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna and Diego Boneta as well as director Tim Miller are also expected to hit the stage in Hall H. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). The actor will make the trek for Paramount and Skydance’s Terminator: Dark Fate panel, which will be held July 18 in the cavernous Hall H.
  12. Do people break down the various runs of Gone with the Wind?? No. The only thing people pay attention to if they even care about box office numbers is the final tally $$$$$$$. Endgame is getting another push, will it be enough? probably. It's a win either way for Disney, wait t'il they crank up the promotional machine for Avatar II. It wouldn't surprise me if WETA Digital is giving the original Avatar a visual upgrade with some added scenes for a possible re-release in Jan 2021. Disney are in the business of making $$, they will do whatever it takes to stoke the fanbases and get them pumped for new product.
  13. Let's break it down using standards...ALITA - Production costs $170 million + Publicity & Marketing estimate $100 million per Hollywood Reporter Domestic: $85,710,210 x 50% = $42,855,105 China: $133,397,094 x 25% = $33,349,274 Foreign: $185,745,239 x 42% = $78,013,000 Total: $154,217,379 or 90.7% of production budget recovered from Box office alone there is no guarantee of Alita climbing out of the red and into the black, they still have a considerable hole to climb out of X-Men First Class (2011) - Production budget $160 million - BO $353.6 million w/w Domestic: $146,408,305 x 50% = $73,204,152 China: $0.00 Foreign: $207,215,819 x 42% = $87,030,644 Total: $160,234,796 or 100.1% of production budget recovered from Box office alone X-Men Apocalypse (2016) - Production cost $178 million - BO $543.9 million w/w Domestic: $155,442,489 x 50% = $77,721,245 China: $120,765,095 x 25% = $30,191,274 Foreign: $267,727,203 x 42% = $112,445,425 Total: $220,357,944 or 123.8% of production budget recovered from Box office alone
