  1. How can anyone say that this has no hype? Even Ava DuVernay is excited and she’s in the business. I don’t know what this will make at the box office, but it has tremendous potential.
  2. I disagree! The hype around the release of the first poster was bananas! The first WW had hype too but there was some cautious optimism, as the reputation of the DCEU was a bit toxic at the time. Now, the DCEU is on a roll and DC in general is on a roll. Three of the last four DC Comics movies have been well received and smashed the box office. There is tremendous hype for this on various sites. People are excited to see what Cheetah looks like too.
  3. Me too. Anyone have any idea what time the trailer is supposed to drop? What time does the presentation start over in Brazil? The thing about Sunday here in the States is that Sunday Twitter is all about football. I hope it can get maximum exposure like Black Widow did. With Black Widow, WW84, Milan, Birds of Prey, I am so happy that young girls coming up will have movies that show women can kick ass too.
  4. I cannot wait for this trailer. I hope it rocks and doesn’t disappoint us. The trailer for the first movie was so awesome.
  5. I loved this! It reminded me of two movies I really liked in Salt and Red Sparrow, but with a lot more action. It will do very very well.
  6. I understand what you’re saying but the poster Barnack and I responded to said that most movie goers are 19 or younger AND that Black Widow is more ICONIC than Wonder Woman. No one would diminish the MCU nor what Scarjo has done with the character but I think both claims merited scrutiny because they are not factual. With all that said, I expect Black Widow to blow up and do huge numbers. Black Panther blew up in a way Spider-Man never has. That does not make him more iconic than Spider Man. It just means that there was more hunger among the general public to see his movie.
  7. You think most of the movie going audience is 19 and below? Bless your heart. I don’t see little girls year after year dressing up as Black Widow for Halloween. However, Wonder Woman is perennially among the top outfits for girls. She is a common thread for mothers and daughters. I can remember wearing my WW outfit. Now, I see my nieces wearing the outfit. Now, that is not to say that Black Widow will not be a great movie and maybe the biggest of the summer. I would never under-estimate Marvel and its fanbase, marketing, etc. A successful movie does not make a ch
  8. So what do you guys think? Will Joker hit 1B or will it be the first superhero/supervillian movie to gross in the 900m range?
  9. Incompletely agree. Looks like even a bad performance in China would have taken it above 1B. Awesome performance by Joker.
  10. Since sequels have underperformed this year- outside of Endgame, I am tempering my expectations. I was starting from a DOM of 400 being the floor. Now, I am just keeping my fingers crossed that this explodes. DC is on a roll lately and frankly, with the performance of Joker and Aquamsn since WW, I hope people stop saying that DC films are front loaded. Maybe the days of front loadedness are over. Now, the movies seem to be appealing to more than just the core base.
  11. So teachers and administrators can’t watch R rated movies?
  12. No, Columbus Day is Monday, October 14th. Yesterday, many schools were closed in observance of the Jewish high holiday of Yom Kippur.
  13. For certain movies (think Endgame on a much larger scale than this), legs are icing on the cake. The movie cost less than 100 million to produce and is already profitable. Legs could be like BvS at this point and WB would be laughing (nod to Joker) all the way to the bank. Nice legs would be a nice bonus.
  14. So happy for Joaquin Phoenix that the Joker blew up. It has a relatively low budget and is already profitable in its first week. It2 and Joker have given WB two decisive wins after a lackluster year thus far. DC films are having a good run. This is the third straight film with good (Joker and Aquaman)/great (Shazam) reviews and profitable. Hope BoP continues trend leading into WW next summer.
  15. It2’s performance is good if it isn’t compared to the first chapter. I read an article the other day, that the box office, Disney theme park, and other entertainment venues are starting to feel the effects of the economic slow down here in the US. FFH likely missing 400M is probably another sign. All of this has me worried about WW84 next summer. I thought for sure that It2 would come close to the first one. I think if the movie opened last year, it would have come close. Same with Spider-Man FFH. Still amazing box office performances, but in a different year/atmosphere may have exceeded the
  16. Happy Birthday, @sfran43. If you drink, knock a couple down for BOT. Enjoy!
  17. I just checked The Numbers and the estimate for FFH is 515K, so I don’t think it will make it to 400M. Will probably reach 390 though. Still a massive success and first Spidey movie to pass 1B. Awesome!!! I just don’t understand why Sony and theater chains decided to drop its theater count by so much.

  19. Yeah, but Fox is now Disney’s problem. These studios’ operating costs and revenues/profits are complex. I just couldn’t believe that with Disney owning the summer, they were still in the red for the quarter. People here assumed that they had money to burn from the summer box office but they don’t. Even though the studio arm did really well, their shareholders are probably disappointed with the quarterlies. Nevertheless, there are still more movies to make, more ventures to pursue and more money to make. I don’t think anyone is shedding any tears for Disney. I posted because I was taken aback
  20. Very pleased with FFH’s drop. Hopefully, it can leg it out to 400M. TLK is doing what it’s supposed to do. It is meeting expectations. TLK, Aladdin, TS4 and Endgame made more money than almost all the studios make in one year, yet Disney’s quarterly earnings underperformed. Hard to believe!
  21. Let’s not ruin BOT by infusing anything about that dumbass man. I agree with those who loved US. I liked it more than Get Out. I realize this is a minority opinion, but Get Out was way overrated to me.
  22. TLK was awesome. So happy to be able to share a bit of my youth with my son. I honestly don’t know why it was so harshly reviewed. Was it perfect? No. But it was a heck of a good time for families at the movies. People clapped at the end of my show, which was 90% capacity in a theater that holds more than 400.
