  1. I think people do want to go back to the movies but the weak numbers we are seeing are a combination of factors. First of all, delta variant is of course affecting the box office for people who maybe were ready to go back to theatres when vaccine was available but saw the increase in cases and decided to wait or watch it at home until more people are vaccinated. Next, almost all movies being released (except for Paramount and some Universal movies) are available at home so people are going to decide to not risk it and watch it safely. Piracy is really a problem everywhere and I am shocked that
  2. I hate to disagree with you but that trailer, although cute, did not win me over and the premise does not look appealing to me. However, I love that Pixar is back on doing original movies and I really think Soul and Luca were fantastic and definitely on par with Pixar top movies so I'll definitely check this out.
  3. I watched it this weekend and I really think this could have been one of my favourite MCU movies if not for that messy third act. The first two thirds of the movie were fantastic and I really liked the new characters and I thought the humor and the actions scenes were very organic and nice. However, I didn't need a flying evil base in the third act and that parachute fall on a Black Widow movie, specially when we already have characters like Captain Marvel or Iron Man which can easily include something like that in their movies. I really think a more basic but effective third act spectacle lik
  4. This weekend would have been better with 'Luca' releasing in theatres and not only Disney+ 😢
  5. I thought 'Mortal Kombat' was pretty bad and I didn't particularly care for 'Demon Slayer' but these numbers bring a lot of hope to the box office and I'm glad they are performing well. My biggest concern now is that there are no big movies until 'Spiral' but after that big movies will come starting with 'A Quiet Place 2' and 'Cruella'. Maybe they should have moved one of them a couple of weeks up
  6. Tbh $18-20m OW is what I predicted 'Mortal Kombat' would do pre-pandemic so...not bad. Glad to see the box office recovering a bit every week. I hope 'Spiral', 'Cruella', and 'A Quiet Place 2' all do amazing in May
  7. 1. Spider-Man: No Way Home 2. Dune 3. The Eternals Honorable mentions: Luca (it would have been in my TOP3 if not for the Disney+ only strategy), A Quiet Place 2, Venom 2, Encanto, and Shang Chi.
  8. So good to be excited again for a weekend thread, it feels like an eternity has passed. Maybe it is a stupid question but is 'Godzilla vs Kong' going to have Tuesday previews? Team Kong
  9. If Black Widow opens on May 7 exclusively on theatres and vaccination rate continues to increase how much do you think it can make? I know it is a difficult question since things change so rapidly nowadays. I think it could do $40-45M OW / $125-150M DOM. Again, so many things can happen
  10. I watched this yesterday and I have to say that it was a pretty solid film. I quite liked it and the movie was very well made, however, it was also very predictable (yeah, even for a Disney film) and nothing really stood out except the amazing animation. I appreciated that they wanted to take it more seriously but I think it would have connected better with audiences if it would have been a musical. Having said this, it is another solid entry on the new Disney films and I am quite sad that it flopped at the Box Office, hope it explodes on Disney+ when it is available for free. I'm also sad tha
  11. I've been following this series weekly and I have to say that it has been fantastic. Wanda has always been one of my favorite MCU character and I always felt she was way underused. Glad that is not the case anymore. This has been a lot different than what Marvel has done so far and, because of that, it has received a lot of indifference from many Marvel fans but I honestly loved it. Don't get me wrong, I love the typical Marvel formula and I will probably enjoy Falcon and the Winter Soldier a lot but it was refreshing to have this series. The weekly format has also been a huge factor for my en
  12. I wonder how Europe's second wave is gonna affect movie theatres here. Spain and France are having +10.000 cases per day and cinemas are still open but no one knows how the situation will be in a couple of weeks.
  13. The movie looks really good but I wasn't a fan of the trailer (specially the music). Unfortunately, I think this movie will not make a lot of money, I really want this movie to succeed but right now the maximum I see is an opening like BR2049 and maybe Christmas legs (if it doesn't change release dates) can take it to +$175M DOM
  14. I watched this yesterday, honestly couldn't tell if it was good or not because I did not understand a single thing, not only plot wise but the sound was too loud and the actor voices were not understandable at all. IDK if it is the way they edited the sound or smth but I could only understand 30-50% of the dialogue, yeah english is not my mother tongue but I tend to watch all movies in english and this has never happened to be before. Anyway, the plot I felt was too complicated to follow for the average moviegoer, when the movie finished everyone at the theatre was confused AF. Don't know how
  15. I'm so excited for this movie, this and Doctor Strange 2 are my two most anticipated movies from Phase 4.
  16. Exactly, I would not be surprised if 'Padre no hay mas que uno 2' ends up grossing the same or even more than the first one despite COVID-19. I think 'Mulan' would do very well in Spain and theatres need movies like 'Mulan'. I have only been since lockdown in a drive in for 'Bloodshot' and 'Call of the Wild' and it was completely full.
  17. Excellent and very needed numbers. This further proves that people are willing to go back to cinemas if there are interesting movies. IMO Disney should release 'Mulan' in Spain and other countries in Europe and the world that cinemas are open. I haven't gone to the cinema yet but that is because none of the movies playing interested me. First time I'll be going is for 'Tenet' and I would go for 'Mulan' too. Disney decision is even more shocking to me when you consider that 'Aladdin', 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'The Lion King' all did more than $22M in Spain, with the latter even do
  18. I don't post much here but I hope everyone in this forum is safe and doing fine. I really miss tracking the BO and going to the cinema. Last movie I watched before lockdown in cinemas was 'Little Women' but during quarantine I had time to catch up with movies like 'Sonic', 'Onward', 'Birds of Prey' or 'The Invisible Man' and I quite liked all of them. I live in The Netherlands and cinemas here are re-opening on the 1st of June with limited capacity and they are playing a mix of new movies (Onward, The Invisible Man) and "old" movies (Harry Potter, Interstellar) so I might go if ca
  19. I don't consider TROS numbers bad but they are pretty disappointing for what they could have been. The end of this Star Wars trilogy (after first one opened to $248,0m) and it should have done much better than what it is doing. The numbers are good and almost any blockbuster would dream to have them ($177m OW / $525-575m DOM / $1.05-1.15b WW). It is like Avengers: Endgame doing $200m OW / $500m DOM / $1.4b WW after Infinity War numbers and all the Infinity Saga or Deathly Hollows Part 2 doing something like $125m OW / $280m DOM / $950m WW after all the build up. Obviously those would not be fl
  20. I really liked Frozen 2. I was never a huge fan of the first but I feel like they improved on this second one (the opposite thing happened with Ralph franchise). I didn't like the soundtrack at the beginning but the more I listen to it the more I like it (Into the Unknown is actually my least favorite). It deserves all the money is making. I think it will do around $125-140m OW / $450-480m DOM / $1.3b-1.5b WW which is pretty amazing when you consider the last one almost made $1.3b WW and it will be the 6th billion dollar movie and the third highest for Disney of 2019 behind Lion King and Endg
  21. I usually would agree on this but Zootopia was my favourite recent WDAS movie and thanks to the world building they created and the amazing characters I would be interested in a sequel and I think it would have potential. For example I loved Wreck it Ralph but I did not think a sequel was necessary, same with Moana, Frozen, and Tangled, I liked them but I don't want to see a sequel (although I have to admit Frozen II trailer looks good). I thought Finding Dory and Toy Story 4 were really unnecessary and did not work for me but Incredibles 2 was a sequel I had been waiting since the first one w
  22. My bets for this D23 expo: - WDAS update with titles for movies on 2020 and 2021 and maybe (fingers crossed) a Zootopia 2 announcement. - Marvel Phase 4 update with release dates for Fantastic Four and Blade and more info on already announced films. - More information on Onward and Soul from Pixar and maybe future projects. - All Disney+ stuff (Lady and the Tramp and Mandalorian trailer, etc). - News on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and future movies. but what I would really like would be for WDAS to confirm their first movie with an LGBT character
  23. Honestly people are quite stupid with this "not handsome enought" thing. He looks hot to me, beauty is relative and he can top me anytime if he wants
  24. Doubt Disney will leave Christmas 2020 with just West Side Story, my bets are on The Eternals being moved there or The Little Mermaid being released there.
