  1. Some did up to a point, now though, I think the new narrative is it's too close for Disney to not do a re-release and push it over.
  2. So between "Glorified hallmark movie no one wants to see" and "Dead in a ditch 3D fad", which one do you prefer? Genuine question, I'm legitimately curious
  3. Well, you're not wrong about that. I've seen people defending the censorship today claiming: "well, we live in really sensitive times". Never under-estimate people's ability to acclimate themselves to oppression.
  4. This newly heightened censorship situation is sad to hear, I was looking forward to The Eight Hundred (box office performance, not the movie itself). I don't think there's any reason to be happy that this might boost Hollywood film performances in the short term, since part of what make China box office so interesting to follow has always been the unpredictable break out of local hits, like WW2, Dying to Survive, Monster Hunt, Detective Chinatown, The Mermaid etc... This year, aside from TWE, the offerings are slim and with elevated censorship, it's not going to get better anytime soon. Not good for the Chinese film industry as a whole, needless to say, when voices are silenced and creativity stifled. Hopefully the situation resolves itself soon.
  5. Oh you just wait, JCS, huge bump coming next weekend in the forms of TS4 & EG double feature, Father's day is also gonna be insane for endgame, once they realized that people still wants to see Endgame endless times, they'll put it back in more theaters, and then FFH's release will give Endgame a 450% increase that weekend, Avatar worldwide still very much on target!
  6. One of the major annoyances of IW/EG's success, is how these lines (such as what you quoted) now completely plagued the Internet, most times used in unfunny and uninteresting ways: "Dread it, run from it, Destiny Arrives Blah Blah Blah", and "in time you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately Blah Blah Blah" These things are so rampant, un-creative and I have to award them an eyeroll whenever I see them, which is hundreds of times per day.
  7. Happy for the rave reviews, still a week to go but I feel I already can't contain my tears...😂
  8. Is EF a groundbreaking original film coming sometime in the future from a visionary filmmaker? Is so, I give it permission to pass Avatar
  9. Marvel folks overused that gif to death on twitter, didn't bring them any luck though. Would not make sense to use it for Avatar 2 vs Avatar 1, whoever wins, Neytiri stays laughing
  10. When I watch films like Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, I felt that a lot of the visuals were clearly inspired by Avatar, another example would be Valerian. To a lesser extent even some scenes in sequel HTTYD films, that I'm not as sure, because battles with people riding dragons (or Na'vi riding Banshees) are probably going to look similar regardless.
  11. I really wish that re-releases of classics still has a sizable audience like they did before, so that Titanic can be re-released every few years, like GWTW did, and I'd go watch it every time.
  12. Now, that is a sentence that I never thought I would ever read. Anyway, there could be some validity to that, all the things that Jim would do for Alita! Dark phoenix would have been a gigantic flop regardless of when it was released, might as well give that Feb slot so that Alita can benefit a little bit.
  13. and the world embraces the "LOTR" of the 2020s...
  14. Exactly! What are some of the non-Cameron upcoming films are you looking forward to? For me, Nolan's Tenet, Villeneuve's Dune, Pixar's Onward and Soul, and James Gray's Ad Astra. None of them is going to be contenders for GOAT box office runs though, hence the additional excitement for Avatar sequels, not that we're incapable of liking other films or filmmakers.
