  1. Funny I was going to post on this thread earlier today saying that the teaser is probably eminent and will be coming in the next 2-3 weeks. What's with Manabyte's post? Does this mean the teaser is coming THIS week perhaps? Maybe this Friday? Wishful thinking, I know. But at the rate we've seen other teaser and trailers????

    2020 Box office discussion

    2020 will be a strange year and will seem stranger coming off of 2019. Avatar 2 will certainly dominate. With Disney owning Fox, they will once again claim the top spot. Other than that, there's a HUGE question mark. Mulan could be "big-ish". Maleficent probably won't be (although I don't see it suffering the way Alice 2 did). What's the status of Indy 5? No production, no filming date, no cast? Not so sure about this one. Is it coming in 2021? Furious? Yeah-big "ish". Disney will have two pixar films that will be brand new (thankfully) but there's little to no information on either. The shake up at pixar will really have an impact. Thank heavens we'll have Jungle Book and Wonder Woman 2 that summer otherwise the summer would be a dismal wasteland. And the absolute lack of announced Marvel films at THIS point is really troubling. GOTG3 was going to take that spot but not any more. We already know there's no SW films and we may not have any summer Marvel films either. That'd be a big WOW and hit on the box office. I suspect WW1984 to be the winner in the summer. And Zilla vs Kong? Again, LOTS of mid-tier films. Fantastic Beasts is dead in the water. At least 2021 should give us Black Panther 2, Spiderman 3, Little Mermaid (I predict).
  3. This would mirror the TFA teaser on Black Friday from 2014. I say bring it on! But don't expect much from it.

    Mary Poppins Returns OVER 400M DOM

    Out. This will have trouble pulling in teen audiences over and over again like franchise, pseudo-comedy action flicks, or horror films. It will also have trouble with the kiddie audience. Not terrible trouble, but enough to keep it out of the $400 million range. I think it will be lucky to hit $300 million domestic. I'd like to see it do that but I'm not so sure it will.
  5. So if this thing absolutely roars, which all signs say it will, how soon after the new year do you think Rob Marshall will FINALLY be announced for the Little Mermaid live action film for 2021?
  6. As far as all the trailers and teasers we've seen this fall, this one is certainly the winner in my book!

    Toy Story 4 | June 20, 2019

    Good point. "Forky" seems like something a 3 year old might make and a 2 year old might play with. How many years will have passed from TS3? And how will this show any progression from TS3? Just another reason to believe that the movie will NOT be about forky. And as a character, forky is rather, um, simple.

    Your box office analysis seems reasonable enough, but "inside word says it's trash"....where did that come from?

    Toy Story 4 | June 20, 2019

    More like: Captain Marvel: $315 million Dumbo: $275 million Avengers 4: $640 million Aladdin: $350 million Pikachu: $200 million Toy Story 4: $450 million SLOP2: $250 million Spidey FFH: $300 million TLK: $650 million That's $2.68 billion from Disney alone in that time period Btw, I think I'm being nice about Pikachu. Maybe influenced by all the talk.

    Toy Story 4 | June 20, 2019

    I can see the forky stuff being the humorous way the movie begins (like the desert canyon train robbery stuff from TS3). A fun sideplot that has little to nothing to do with the rest of the film. It may or may not set up a theme but won't factor in much for the rest of the movie. As far as people not asking for or wanting a sequel, how often is that the case? Sure, if a series is designated as a trilogy or series (Avengers, Star Wars, Harry Potter) then we want sequels. Other than that, I'm not so sure if there is a want or not want. Incredibles was possibly the only exception. I mean-did anyone really want a sequel to Finding Nemo?
  11. Is that a "hit" though? (I say it is). If these were the numbers people threw around for Aladdin they'd say it was a bomb. Oh, and people are becoming REALLY obsessed with Detective Pikachu.
  12. Disney's gonna knock it out of the ball park once again!!!! Incredible trailer for a movie I wasn't sure about.
  13. Many people feel like, with the crowded summer of 2019, this one will be the one that takes the biggest hit. I think it may keep it from hitting $400 million but should easily go into the $300 millions with a $120-$130 million OW. Agree? Disagree?

    $205 million for Aladdin??? $310 million for TS4??? Those are crazy low numbers. Aladdin will open with at least $120 million. TS4 will pass $300 million in its 2nd or 3rd weekend.

    Toy Story 4 | June 20, 2019

    Agreed. But this one could have an emotional ending itself. One thing occurred to me which really applies to the world of toys. Most of us (depending on ages) remember a time when we played with toys the way Andy did and the way Bonnie seems to. However, in this day and age, there are so many electronic gadgets, video games, cell phones, etc, which have seemed to replace actual toys for many people. I wonder if that will eventually find its way into the TS franchise as a theme. I was also thinking of the idea that either Andy or Bonnie would/could grow up to be an actual toy creator. Would be an interesting direction to go.
