  1. You are only an outlier in the US. Other countries loved it. Hence the over $100M international. Who else has done so well with so poor reviews and no IP? And overseas? I disagree.
  2. It has passed $100M international, and worldwide it will make or be close to $150,000, once it opens in Russia. It will end up making money in the aftermarket, particularly since they had Fox International distributing a bunch of places, but unless they have plans to trim the budget, I don't see a sequel happening. I really thought it was well done, though, and I loved the ending.
  3. Aronofsky wasn't her boyfriend when the deal was cut. She also took a pay cut for American Hustle and 'only ' asked $15M for Joy -- and the studio came to her and DOR to make it, and kept asking. She asks less up front for passion projects. However, if a studio wants HER in a picture, it is up to them what they pay. As I stated above, I think she is sort of a catastrophic loss insurance policy for movies with poor reviews and little IP - Passengers made money despite it, and so will Red Sparrow, even if it ends up making it in the after market. RS has already made $130M ww on a $69M budget, and none of that money is from China so there is no steep applicable discount. It will make over double the budget in theaters, and her blu rays and streamed films sell well. And no, I don't think a Reeves/McAdams Passengers makes nearly as much with those scorching 'date rape' reviews. They are great actors (I really, really like Keanu) but they don't have the overseas draw Jen and Pratt have, nor the domestic draw to fight those reviews, imho. We will never know what that film would have done however, because it couldn't get financed until they had Jen's name on it, and Keanu tried for years. (His company was still associated with the final project.) Getting it financed was worth $20M to someone, clearly. @straggler RS passed Atomic Blonde's total take world wide early in RS's second week.
  4. It was #1 in Germany for weeks, and is still going strong. I can see why they'd hope for a repeat.
  5. Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if you were right. I think 2+ x budget is the best it is going to do in theaters, but that is hardly terrible, and as said above 57% of attendees polled went for her. It should make money in the after market, which, with Passengers, makes her something like a catastrophe insurance policy for films that get bad reviews and have no real IP. We don't have to go to Alicia, look at Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde. She is known in the US, is an excellent actress, and is gorgeous. However, Red Sparrow outperformed its entire run globally by RS's second week, with much worse reviews (here, overseas reviewers liked it better.) Draw includes international draw, and I think this movie further proves that Jen has that. It's funny that I have never ever heard a fan say something like that. You know who did say that? Jen herself because she is always self deprecating. She also DOES need space in public, or she would never have a normal dinner out with friends. She isn't 'occasionally' recognized, it is constant. Her fans are fine with getting selfies when she is at events, where she is there for that. People who didn't like her to begin with raise these things against her, but they didn't like her anyhow. Fans completely understand, and hope she'll have some break time between promo tours. Again, only with people who didn't like her before she said that in an interview last year. And they were already a lost cause. Amazing how invested they are in the issue, though.
  6. It has passed SG now. PR 12.1% ICOI 10.9% BP 10.3% RPO 7.7% SG 7.6%
  7. Having you on this site is really educational. Thank you!
  8. and that's through the 20th. I guess they will update Monday afternoon?
  9. Yeah, it's not doing great domestically, and dropped 1100 more theaters this week. I hope it crosses $50M DOM though, since it's drops have been decent. It will probably depend on how many theaters it keeps and how long Fox keeps it in theaters. On the other hand, it is doing great overseas which is excellent for growing Jen's continued international base.
  10. Today too, it looks like. Tombraider is currently outside of the top 5 on Movie Tickets, it's ICOI PR BP Avengers AWIT But Paul is starting to show up on pulse, and that might impact ICOI
  11. France, Japan and Russia are among those still to open. I don't know if it is opening in China.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I never saw the teaser. I just saw the trailer in the theater.
  15. 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.
