  1. I will be rooting for the film to be not a failure. I rather enjoyed the trailer.
  2. Out There is a difference between cute Pikachu and serious Pikachu
  3. Right, why would people think Detective Pikachu will make a lot of money?

    Christopher Robin led for the second weekend in a row. Weekend: 184,950 attendance and 256,242,000 won revenue. Extended weekend (with Monday holiday): 290,0711 people, and income 392,770,000 yen. Cumulative attendance (until Monday): 910,000 people, revenue exceeded 1.2 billion yen (US$10.6 million). Higher number of attendance from Christopher Robin's age people. https://eiga.com/ranking/
  5. So, where can we see cumulative numbers? I remembered there was a weekend table of about 20 or 30 entries with cume.

    Thursday Numbers

    The numbers this week really pale vs. last week's
  7. When will I2 land in Germany?
  8. Hey... how would you know what the China audience wants? 🤔
  9. Good point. I didn't know John Cho was born in Seoul.
  10. Yes, it depends on hold - but it should get really close to 100M.
  11. Saw this yesterday. It is not perfect, but there are some many good things being conveyed that it is entirely entertaining. Western vs. Eastern values - the cultural conflicts - good use of the Singaporean breathtaking views. I just read this article this morning, which probably reflects on some representation issues that had happened in the past decades. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/04/26/an-all-asian-cast-and-no-martial-arts-why-the-crazy-rich-asians-movie-matters/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.9311db33c1ca
  12. Whoa, "Searching" is doing really well in Korea. I guess the story of a concerned parent with a missing girl struck a chord there.

WK4This weekend is tricky to predict. Saturday is going to be a very, very busy day, thanks to it being the first of the month (national discount day) and the last completely free day before schools/universities start back on Monday. And Sunday will likely be very weak since Saturday will greatly deflate it, and the evening/night showings, in particular, will probably be very slow. So... expect some great holds across the board, and while Saturday pre-sales do suggest a couple films (other than One Cut of the Dead) could experience a weekend increase, I really think Sunday will be weak enough to lower the overall weekend to probably prevent increases. Still, this weekend is generally very strong every year, and this year's will be no different.Ant-Man and the Wasp will be aiming to debut atop the box-office, and while it has a fair chance, its pre-sales for Saturday just don't look strong enough to do so despite leading the pack. Marvel films typically have some degree of frontloading to them, so I think it'll fall just shy. Also, this weekend will likely secure that Code Blue will go on to outgross Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer to become the highest-grossing, and most-attended, film of 2018. If it has a sixth-weekend similar to the forecast above, it's likely to exceed ¥9 billion ($81/82 million). It'll become only the fourth domestic live-action to ever exceed ¥9 billion, and it'll be the first domestic live-action film to top a year since 2012.
  14. So, where will this land? 90M DOM 70M OS? Will Disney be okay with that considering the merchandising that goes with it?
  15. This movie is about Asian-American, mostly from East Asian descents. It's a step forward for Hollywood. Other representations may follow after.

    ANT-MAN AND THE WASP | 07.06.2018 | Disney

    It still has Italy, Portugal, China and Japan to release. Italy, Portugal and Japan probably can do 15-20M.

    Deadline says "Holds are strong, including in Japan where the Parr family jumped up 30% for $19.3M so far". Is it really doing USD 5m+?
  20. As long as China delivers like the first one, 600WW should be delivered. And while that might not be a big jump from the first one, it is still a pretty good jump. Only MCU can deliver sequels that score larger than the first one consistently.
  21. Why are so many "blockbuster" movies playing in South Korea at the same time? AMATW really got lucky with the release date and the fact that it had a couple of weeks to itself. Not so lucky: I2, MI:F, HT2, MM2 with AWtG, Detective Conan and a few others.
  22. With DOM: nostalgia plays a huge role with parents who watched the originals now taking their kids. Not sure OS has that in abundance.
