  1. Unfortunately the China box office numbers for this might not be what we've been hoping for for obvious reasons... Stay safe everyone
  2. I think it's interesting how an animated film that is heavily based on Scandinavian folklore and is set in Medieval Europe is resonating so much across different cultures in Nigeria, India, Taiwan, etc. Tbh it just speaks volumes on the timeless and universal appeal of magic I think it will continue to fascinate all of us forever
  3. I've always thought it was poetic that Infinity War and Endgame struck a chord the most with the most populated countries on the planet
  4. I think it's pretty unfair to compare the ST to Potter and LoTR films which are adapted from BOOKS, the fans and GA know what to expect and everyone knows and agrees on what they want as a collective whole Unlike with the ST this is the THIRD generation of films, released decades later after its initial peak, not based on pre-existing material and there's such a divide between OT loving boomers, prequel defenders/millennials, TLJ loving gen Z, etc. OT is the only comparable trilogy for the FIRST set of films for LoTR and Potter Prequels = Hobbit movies, Fantastic Beasts movies (which aren't doing so hot either) ST = ??? The fact that the THIRD gen of this franchise in its 4th decade has an entry that topped the all time domestic list and $2B WW (the franchise repeaking for the 3rd time) is pretty amazing in itself Will a Cursed Child live action film be able to boast such a feat? Oh wait, even the fans don't like that play that much
  5. Disney themselves don't consider it to be animated... https://variety.com/2020/film/box-office/frozen-2-biggest-animated-movie-ever-disney-box-office-1203456758/ Most publications are now considering F2 to be the highest animated grosser And it deserves that record way more than TLK 2019
  6. I'm glad most publications are now considering F2 to be the highest grossing animated film and not TLK 2019 https://variety.com/2020/film/box-office/frozen-2-biggest-animated-movie-ever-disney-box-office-1203456758/ Now someone just needs to edit the highest grossing animated films wikipedia page
  7. F1 was a huge cultural phenomenon worldwide that only got more widespread and more embedded in pop culture after the film left the theaters F2 is merely reaping the benefits of that
  8. But it's the highest grossing movie of the decade there? Idgi https://www.boxofficemojo.com/year/2015/?area=AU&grossesOption=totalGrosses Oh it's sarcasm, didn't notice the /s
  9. Not to mention The Snow Queen is a Danish fairy tale (even if it's only loosely based on it) Not surprised at it absolutely smashing in Scandinavia
  10. At least domestic wise, it is massively bigger than TPM It sold more tickets (108M) than any film since Titanic (18 years before its release) Outdid Empire Strikes Back by 10M more tickets And it's still the highest grossing movie ever in the US and the UK It's gonna be a while until something outgrosses it in these markets
  11. Minons = Shrek 2 DM3 = Shrek 3 Rise of Gru = Shrek 4
  12. Battle of the Five Armies all over again... Actually that trilogy and this trilogy's trajectory are very similar
  13. I liked it even better after watching it a 2nd time This is because I had no more expectations and I didn't have everyone else's loud opinions in my subconscious anymore I regret watching and reading even non-spoiler reviews because I then started pinpointing the scenes the criticisms were referring to I feel like if I just went in with absolutely no idea of what to expect I would've enjoyed it more and not look at every scene and subconsciously nitpick Disregarding every extra thing weighing this film down whether it'd be the TLJ vs TFA vs OT vs whatever debates... As a film in itself, I absolutely love its message, makes me feel really good and hopeful, personally And if others felt I what I felt after watching this film then absolute kudos and respect to everyone involved in this film Also idk if it's just me but something about the atmosphere/vibe of this movie and TFA really gives me 90s vibes for some reason, which makes me love them even more
  14. Idk if it's just me but I saw some striking similarities with Endgame lol Cap vs Cap = Rey vs Rey Lando coming in with all the ships at the last minute when all hope seemed lost = "Cap on your left!"/Dr. Strange with all the portals with resurrected Avengers (ok I know this is a common trope in finales) "I have all the Sith within me!" = "I am inevitable" "And I......have all the Jedi within me!" = "And I.....am Iron Man!"
