  1. I feel like Rian Johnson wanted to make a movie solely about Luke, Kylo and Rey, but obviously couldn't ignore the Resistance stuff. I wish Johnson was more open to having other writers work with him, they could've focused on Finn and Poe stuff while Rian writes his Reylo and Luke story.
  2. Also $64.68m if it follows GotG2
  3. While many of us were hoping for a total over $700m, it looks like this movie is going to basically follow the previous Star Wars habit of the sequel to the first of a trilogy decreasing by about ~30%. If it follows TPM to AotC then it makes just over $656m, while a ANH to ESB drop puts it at just over $638m.
  4. To be fair he pitched the original Avatar to Disney after Fox turned him down, it was only because Fox had ‘right of first refusal’ that they kept him onboard.
  5. If it makes about 215/216 this weekend that means the TFA to TLJ OW drop would be about the same as the drop from AUJ to TDS. If it ends up with the same multiplier as TDS it’ll be at about 757 DOM by the end of its run. I can’t see why it’s multiplier would be much worse than TDS’, let alone worse than RO’s (which puts it at 741, a good number still).
  6. I know my local Vue won’t be particularly representative, but normally the biggest screen is at least half-full for most midnight showings, even relatively smaller films do alright. There are currently 8 people other than me here. Not great.
  7. Out. I’m fairly certain it’ll do around 750, if not 10-20 million more. I think TLJ will be able to co-exist with the other December releases. Plus the December legs will dampen any major fall, and December sequels drop much less than sequels in other months.

    Box Office Theory's Most Anticipated Films

    1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi 2. Thor: Ragnarok (technically out today here in the UK, but I'm not seeing it for a few days so I'll count it) 3. The Incredibles 2 4. Ant Man and the Wasp 5. Solo: A Star Wars Story 6. Avengers: Infinity War 7. Isle of Dogs 8. Mission: Impossible 6 9. Red Sparrow 10. Deadpool 2
  9. I reckon we'll see either Bill Condon or Brad Bird direct IX instead - if that happens Condon will leave Bride of Frankenstein. I'd have said Favreau would be the likeliest candidate but he's doing The Lion King. I think David Lowery might even do it, he's got a relatively clear slate for that time and is in the Disney family now with Pete's Dragon. The other two obvious candidates I can think of are JJ and Rian Johnson, I imagine they'd want Rian back over JJ and I reckon he'd likely want to return and do the script with Jack Thorne. Joss Whedon could happen, but seeing as he seems to be getting in with DC now he might not have the time. I guess Spielberg might be in the conversation, Disney must be clamouring to see how Ready Player One turns out and is received, plus he's been in the conversation of possibly directing Star Wars movies since Return. Disney would probably love having the Russo Brothers do it, but with all their Marvel commitments I can't see how they can fit it in. The only other realistic (though unlikely) candidates I can think of are James Gunn and Taika Waititi.
  10. Loved it! Great, emotional film and I'm thoroughly looking forward to seeing it again. Smash that box office BatB!
  11. - April and the Extraordinary World - Kubo and the Two Strings - Moana - My Life as a Zucchini - Zootopia* Alts (in descending order of likelihood): - Finding Dory - The Red Turtle - Miss Hokusai *Will win

    BAFTA Nominations 2016

    The BAFTAs should really bring back separate British and Foreign acting categories. Blunt was the best part of Girl on a Train by far, but Best Actress nom worthy? Probably not. It's clear the BAFTAs have a bias to British actors anyhow, just make it a formal split IMO.
