  1. Singer isn't doing this, Kinberg is. I expect this one to be different.
  2. France, Japan and Russia are among those still to open. I don't know if it is opening in China.

    It is doing well overseas. I wish it were doing as well domestically - but I think it will end up about $50M domestic, which isn't awful. The questions are whether it will open in China, and if so, how well it will do there and in Russia.
  4. Well, I really liked this!! She's great! honestly, it's popular on my timeline, but I guess Twitter kind of enforces a same-think bubble to some extent. I expected higher previews. But hopefully word of mouth will do it. TombRaider is competing for the young females, (yeah I know that may not be the target audience but tend to like a romantic story), so that's a thing.
  5. I never saw the teaser. I just saw the trailer in the theater.
  6. The trailer for this looked really, really, really awful.... then I read that it is doing exceptionally well on social media so I came here to find an explanation.... I haven't been following it at all - I hadn't even heard of it until I saw the trailer I cringed at (in embarrassment). I'm taking it this is one the trailer didn't do justice? I do like Emily Blunt.
  7. ...him torturing those kids on that picnic trip.... A Voldemort story would need a counterfoil you could root for, but Dumbledore would do, even if he wasn't the main focus. According to the book, Voldemort was a megalomaniac narcissist, giving other beings no value, from the beginning. Which could make for a good movie, but you need someone to root for, who prevails in some sense at the end, for it to be a proper Harry Potter movie. And Voldemort in a movie like that should be too young a part for Johnny Depp to play.... honestly, his personal issues aside,
  8. This looks good from the trailer. I'm going to see it this weekend.
  9. Total Lifetime Grosses Domestic: $34,395,239 38.5% + Foreign: $55,036,419 61.5% = Worldwide: $89,431,658 So, since it only had night showings last Thursday, two weeks (until tonight's shows, with today not included in the numbers above) should have it at over $90M world wide. I guess I think that IS opening a movie. Particularly since it hasn't opened in a number of major markets yet.
  10. I thought it was good, and definitely enjoyable overall - parts certainly weren't, but the "he wants power" scene and the end were very satisfying. But maybe that is a female take on it. Clearly this movie won't be for everyone, but I'm not the only one who liked it. It has been #1 for two weekends in Italy and Spain, and was #2 in Germany last weekend but #1 this past weekend. I think it is just a matter of taste. https://www.the-numbers.com/movie/Red-Sparrow#tab=summary
  11. plus $26,382,702 overseas https://www.the-numbers.com/movie/Red-Sparrow#tab=international
  12. Well, I really liked it, but to each their own! https://twitter.com/RyanJL/status/970518467228119041
  13. I know she and Jodie Foster are presenting Best Actress instead of Casey Affleck, but I still consider this Red Sparrow promo...
  14. It isn't popular in the sense that Twilight, Harry Potter or The Hunger Games were popular, and certainly not overseas. I am still hoping it will open in China with editing, as Logan did. We'll see. I was about to say that the number 1 opening in Taiwan might bode well for China, but actually I don't know if Taiwan's market is anything like China's in what they like. It opened number 1 in Italy and Spain, as well, and number 2 in Germany. Box office draw isn't only a domestic issue.
