  1. Few years back in one of the movie sharing session, they pirated the movie and show it to the group. (Piracy is quite common here) That was the the only Fellini movie that I have seen. And, I had a hard time to recognize its origin initially as spanish, french, portuguese all sound alike to me.
  2. I never seen Godfather 1 & II although both were screamed as one of the greatest among film community , don't judge. I have seen Godfather III through. Also, exorcist and amarcord are the earliest film that I have watched, never seen any of the film came before 1973.
  3. I have limited 1970s movie but there are 3 films that I really want to place them in! Amarcord by Fellini, the best Italian movie ever to me, only to be matched Cinema Paradiso Apocalypse now. This is the best war film, not saving private Ryan Taxi Driver, Martin Scoresese should have won Oscar for this, not some sub-par remake like The Deaparted

  8. THE LION KING Disney Disney’s The Lion King moved up the charts to become the No. 9 movie of all time globally with $1,435.2M through Sunday. It is also the No. 2 release of 2019 domestically, overseas and worldwide. The drop from last session was 38% with $33.8M more in the offshore coffers which currently total $939.1M. The $1B international milestone should hit soon. In Europe and Latin America, the Jon Favreau-directed redo of the animated classic is the highest grossing Disney Live Action film ever. In Brazil, TLK is now the No. 2 highest grossing film of all time, behind Avengers: Endgame. Lion King’s European weekend saw it maintain No. 1 in Belgium (where it is the 2nd biggest movie ever) as well as No. 2s in the UK, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway and Sweden. Regionally in the Middle East, the film is now the 3rd biggest grosser of all time. This means that Disney has the Top 3 all-time releases, along with Aladdinand Endgame. In the Netherlands, The Lion King is now the highest grossing film ever (when excluding the re-release of Titanic). In Latin America, TLK is the biggest industry film by admissions, holding the No. 1 position in Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Venezuela this session. It was No. 2 in Brazil, Argentina and Colombia. Overall, notable drops were seen in Belgium (-1%), Netherlands (-11%), Japan (-15%), Chile (-19%), Israel (-20%), Germany (-23%), Switzerland (-29%), France (-32%), Sweden (-35%) and Brazil (-35%) The Top 5 markets to date are: China ($120.3M), UK ($81.1M), France ($67.7M), Brazil ($64M) and Mexico ($50.5M). Italy joins the pride next weekend and will be the final market to release.
  9. HOLDOVERS/EXPANSIONS ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD Sergei Ilnitsky/Shutterstock Quentin Tarantino’s love letter to 1969 came in tops at the international box office this weekend, enjoying a $53.7M second frame. This, in effect, was the official opening as last week’s Russia, Taiwan and Hong Kong acted as a teaser. Russia had bowed to a record QT score while the 46 new markets this session combined to give the director the best launch of his career. The debut hubs landed 30% higher than Django Unchained at today’s rates. They also topped Leonardo DiCaprio/Margot Robbie-starrer The Wolf Of Wall Street by 19%. The international cume is now $66.2M for a global running tally of $180.5M. At historic rates, that means Hollywood is already Tarantino’s 5th biggest grosser worldwide. Offshore markets to come include Mexico, Japan, Italy and Korea. No confirmation yet on China. There were No. 1s in 28 opening markets this session, led by the UK’s 5-day total of $8.9M (+76% on Django). France started with $6.9M which is on par with Django. Tarantino excels here, particularly as he has such strong ties to the Cannes Film Festival where Hollywood world premiered. Anecdotally, in the southern town of Aix-en-Provence, the movie is playing in two of the three main cinemas — one is hosting the dubbed version, and the other has the English-language original, with French subtitles. On Thursday this week (a holiday that typically draws folks to other pastimes) the subtitled seances were SRO from early evening. In Germany, the weekend (including previews) was $5.6M. Australia grossed $4.4M (68% over Django), and Spain bowed to $3.6M. Russia’s cume rose to $13.3M after another $3M weekend. Hong Kong and Taiwan, where Bona is releasing the Sony title, are at $1.2M and $1.1M, respectively.
  10. Ya, especially two thirds of the film was not in English Is The farewell feature heavily mandarin dialogue? The trailer suggest more like a Slumdog Millionaire English/Hindi percentage. USA is one of the most educated country in the world, how can reading the subtitle be an issue for large part of American? I feel the problem is just habitual issue and American feel annoyed or irritated for hearing some unfamiliar foreign language. Also, most foreign language film are drama or comedy without visual action spectacle, this kind of film suffered a lot now regardless of their languages
  11. The decline of German cinema cannot be clearer with this chart when none of them hit 10m admission and you have 6 of them in 2000s and 3 of them in 1990s(Pretty woman got 10m in Germany!). I can only find 1980s as another decade that feature zero 10m hit. The worst is, the top non-hollywood film isn't a German film either!
  12. Once very likely to do about 330m worldwide assuming No china release, that is about the range(minus china) of Godzilla 2, Pikachu, Shazam, and more than X-men, Us and MIB4
