  1. Damn Fox, if DP2 were to open one week later it was, I am sure AIW would have surpassed TFA WW, and BP DOM. AIW had 3 weeks of little competition before DP2 opened (and a lesser degree Solo, which is a 200M grosser though underperformed), wheres BP had 5-6 weeks, and TFA something like 6-8 weeks of virtually no competition. Surely 2 more weeks of lesser competition could have give AIW another 20-30M DOM and 40-50M WW.
  2. Yes, coming off the lowest base of MCU original movies, at the hot trails of BP and AIW, tts OW floor is 85M (half a million above Solo's $84.4M), and it should have a good shot at 100M. Not kidding I seriously think the expectation of its end credit showing the link to AIW and what may transpire in the first act of A4 should add 5-10M to its OW.

    INCREDIBLE: The Incredibles 2 #1 Movie of the Year DOM

    Watched it a few hours ago, quite enjoyable and fun, but a few patches that a bit boring. The villain is meh, the stake/risk low. Quite a lot of cliches in plots, even the "twists" can be seen hundreds of feet away. Nowhere near as thrilling, exciting or engaging as AIW. 7/10. Worth watching once in theatre, and for me once is enough. Was thinking it may have a good shot at 600M DOM, but after watching it, I have a feeling that even 500M may be a struggle.

    INCREDIBLE: The Incredibles 2 #1 Movie of the Year DOM

    Out. The Incredibles 2 will do quite exceptionally well for as a Pixar movie and as a SH movie, with a good shot at 600M. However, BP and AIW did very exceptionally well, closing in 700M DOM.
  6. This. There are 3 major elements in a blockbuster movie, the first two apply to ALL movies: story, characters/characterization, and action/special effects. Most blockbusters do not have strong/believable/inspiring stories, therefore it is the tangible, relatable and memorable characters that elevate a blockbuster above mediocrity. E.g. Star Wars OT excelled in all three, Prequels mostly lacked in characters. A blockbuster that is poor in story and characters but good in actions/SFx are like MTV or video montage, good for a viewing or two but lacks rewatchablity and ages poorly.
  7. I am with you on JP3 being fun adventure as what a dino movie should be even though it was not in the league of the original JP. For me JW:FK is below JP3 but above JP2. JP3's story was simple but coherent, JW:FK is convoluted and incoherent, and has AoU fault of having to set up for the threequel. The characters in JP3 might not be memorable but at least unoffending. Most characters in JW:FK are laughable, unlikable, or even douchey. One may watch it once for some of fun/exciting/thrilling scenes involving dinos, but the poor story and characters work against rewatchability.
  8. Each incremental 100M Yuan is getting more and more difficult to attain. They probably thought 22 was the last thus the poster related to end credit scene.Then 2300M happened and they backed tracked abit to the last scene of the movie proper. It will be interesting to see what they put out for 24.
  9. I watched it last night, and I agreed with you 90%. There are exciting and thrilling scenes of dino vs men/dino, but I'd say two thirds of the time I felt bored. The story is thin, the characters (except Chris Pratt's) are meh, the villains are laughable, the message cringey/confusing/pseudosciene/convoluted (not that I expect solid intelligent story from these type of movies, but but still disappointing). And the last the final one major decision making by the of the characters was just smh. JW 7/10, this sequel 6/10.
  10. I read somewhere but can't recall exactly, either Russo Bros or the scriptwriters said that the Gauntlet was completed broken after the Snap. That Thanos could still use Space Stone after the Snap did not mean the Gauntlet was still somewhat working. Use of a single Infinity Stone did not require the Gauntlet, e.g Dr Strange using Time Stone, Hydra Mind Stone, Ronan/GotG Power Stone. However, the Gauntlet is probably the most efficient and effective vessel to harness the combined power of several Stones.
  11. WM is a MCU Phase one character, so it does make sense to include him. As I see it, the following SH will be working together in first two acts of A4 to bring back (almost) all others in third Act: Original 6 WM (a phase one character) Ant-Man (a phase two character) Captain Marvel (a phase 3 character) Rocket and Nebula (GotG representatives)

    I thought his posts in WIR2 thread were relatively "mild" compared to what he posted in the recent Solo Weekend thread. I was surprised he was not at least threadbanned in the Weekend thread. I guess WIR2 was the last straw.
  13. I thought his posts in this thread were relatively mild compared to what he posted in the recent Weekend thread, where he appeared to be very spiteful and throwing temper tantrum. We all have periods in life when anger management is needed. Hopefully one month of forced detachment from BOT will give him some time and space to calm down and be at peace.
  14. I will give Brie Larsen a chance, but I wish it would have been Shailene Woodley as CM.
  15. 1) If DP2 release were to pushed back by one week, AIW would have a great chance of >700M Dom and > TFA WW (unadjusted). 2) If exchange rates were to be better wrt USD (such as a few months ago), AIW should be able to beat TFA WW (unadjusted).
