  1. The thing Spielberg and others never considered fully is how the international market would grow up as countries developed. You can make a $200m movie like Justice League that essentially "bombs" in the United States but still will make money because it made $400m+ from international. The last 6 months alone have show how many different films are being made and profitable on a huge scale. Everything from indie movies to blockbusters. Also, the sort of whining that Spielberg said where "I almost had to put Lincoln on HBO" was because Spielberg has a ridiculous and well earned structure and cut that he gets when he makes a film. Yeah, studios aren't wiling to take all the risk while he takes none and still gets a bucket of money on certain projects.
  2. No, it isn't at all. The stupid comparisons to Blockbuster are completely misguided and that Spielberg article is going on 5 years old and none of it has materialized, and in fact has gone the opposite way.
  3. Well, hate to be the bearer of bad news again, but the numbers aren't promising. The per theater average is still well behind where it needs to be and made less than $1m on Monday. Going to really now come down to Fri/Sat/Sun to show a solid hold.
  4. Did you guys somehow miss the Rolex Oscar's commercial? There is 13 seconds of Pandora visuals in it. I'm guessing it is pre-Avatar 2 stuff they used specifically for the commercial. Starts at :42 seconds.
  5. Possibly. Still might clock in at 6th or 7th and then potentially worse next week. The prospects of this sticking rely on the next 7 days.
  6. The best legs for this might get it to $50m but this weekend will tell a lot. If it doesn't drop sub 40% this weekend, it is dead in the water.
  7. Yeah, you're very wrong on this unless the reviews are shit.
  8. I have no idea why they didn't go with Sicario: Soldado
  9. Anyone who pirates or tries to justify pirating (that isn't in a poor third world country) is a scumbag.
  10. The best thing about all of that is that the overwhelming consensus is that the user ratings went through a coordinated effort to lower them artificially, which has been proven out over multiple films since and nobody with a brain points to them as evidence of anything other than unreliable. I'm a truth teller and saw it before everyone else.
  11. I shouldn't say this because I don't want to inflate his ego, but I like me some @IronJimbo and he legit cracks me up. I love fucking with him.
