  1. TDF will be scored by Junkie XL fresh off his work in Alita. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/terminator-dark-fate-lands-composer-junkie-xl-1196327 Composer Tom Holkenborg is reteaming with his 'Deadpool' director Tim Miller. For Junkie XL, there is no fate but what we make for ourselves. Composer Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, will score Terminator: Dark Fate, the upcoming Terminator sequel that brings series creator James Cameron back as a producer for the first time since 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The film is from director Tim Miller, who collaborated with Holkenborg on 2016's Deadpool. "It's great to be working on another project with Tim," Holkenborg said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "The original Terminators were such iconic movies, and having James back as a producer with Tim directing is an amazing dream team. It's going to be a fantastic movie to be part of." Holkenborg's scoring credits include Mad Max: Fury Road, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Tower, the most recent Tomb Raider movie and Alita: Battle Angel. Terminator: Dark Fate, from Paramount and Skydance, is the first Terminator film to feature original star Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor since T2. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also back, with series newcomers including Natalia Reyes and Mackenzie Davis. For Holkenborg fans in the Los Angeles area, the Terminator news comes as he prepares to make a public appearance March 29 at Synthplex, a festival described as celebrating all things synthesizer. He will be joined in conversation by THR contributor Byron Burton in Room ABC at the Burbank Airport Marriott Convention Center. Terminator: Dark Fate opens Nov. 1
  2. Domestic (Mon): $331,000 down almost 50% from previous Monday. Feb 14: $8.716 M Feb 15-21: $39.964M Feb 22-28: $16.550M Mar 1-7: $9.914 M Mar 8-14: $4.775 M Total: $79.921M Final Estimate: $84-85M
  3. I think 10% of current market cap. would get Bob Iger's attention. $17 billion or so would probably get you on the list for the premiere. 😎😎
  4. https://www.fxguide.com/featured/weta-digitals-remarkable-face-pipeline-alita-battle-angel/ Alita is important on its own as a major film, but also as a sand box for James Cameron, who was both a Writer and Producer on Alita. He has commented in the press that the film has been a test bed for the technology that will be used in the upcoming Avatar films. Saindon comments that, "Jim's said that in interviews that Alita is the perfect environment for us (Weta) to start working on technology for Avatar. Everyone knows we're working on Avatar now and everyone knows that's where our technology's going.” Currently Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and parts of Avatar 4 have completed 'principal capture', with live-action filming set to take place in New Zealand for about four months, starting in May. Unlike Alita, Cameron has said that the live action is a relatively small part of the new Avatar films, telling the NZ Herald last month, "there are several live action characters that go through a lot of the CG scenes so it's about integrating the live characters into the CG scenes. Kind of the opposite to Alita where we had a few CG characters mostly integrated into live action settings.” He also added that in the new Avatar films, "I've got a couple of human characters integrated into the Na'vi rainforest, oceans, mountains, that sort of thing. We'll shoot that 3D, so everything is going to look spectacular. That sets the bar for the CG guys at Weta.”

  6. See post above yours from Izzy, only thing I would change is the Foreign box office take at 40% instead of the domestic rate of 50%. Either way it won't change the end result, hard time covering production costs from the theatre run and a huge marketing hole to dig out of post release.
  7. I'm pretty sure when they went over the numbers this WASN'T the result they were looking for. Alita hasn't recovered its production budget yet let alone marketing costs....I would be shocked if Disney green lights a sequel. Also I'm wondering if maybe they aren't getting a wee bit nervous about Terminator and the possibility of more red ink.
  8. Domestic update: looks like Alita will land in 5th place - theatre count is 2,374 down from 3,096 last week. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/box-office-captain-marvel-heading-155m-160m-us-launch-1193330 Elsewhere, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World looks to place second with $15.2 million in its third weekend for a domestic total of $120 million-plus through Sunday. Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral is tumbling a steep 58 percent in its second outing with a projected $11.5 million for a 10-day total just shy of $46 million. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Chapter and Alita: Battle Angel will round out the top five in their fifth and fourth weekends respectively, with an estimated $4 million and $3.2 million.
  9. I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall listening to the poor sap who had to approach Jim with the request to provide Bob Iger and his team with some **"new"** Avatar footage for his annual dog and pony show (Annual Shareholders Meeting). Did he say "no problem we'll give you something" OR was it WTF!!! the deal isn't closed yet and already they're making demands, if we do this make sure that NO ONE films it, shoot them on sight.
  10. Aliens can wait let them focus on getting The Abyss in a HD format, finally. I'm sure Aliens will get the 4K treatment soon just like Alien.
  11. While we wait for Avatar II - it looks like there's some serious progress being made on The Abyss - Blu Ray. This was posted by Skip Kimball (search IMDB for long list of credits incl. Avatar and Alita)
