  1. TLJ didn't go in a new direction. What it did that was "different" is that it stopped going in any direction at all.
  2. Well said. Ironically, TROS has played more like Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Civil War. However, none of those 3 had a damaging effect on the franchise. They were, however, holdovers until the "big event" which was the Thanos war. TROS doesn't have that and there's nothing that the SW franchise is leading up to.
  3. Just saw this post and agree with it totally. Everyone I have spoken to who has seen it really liked it or at least thought it was solid. That's as opposed to TFA that had everyone ecstatic. The movies really weren't that far off from each other in terms of quality. Just waning interest in a short 4 years. Kind of like a reality TV show such as Survivor way back in the day. Only TRUE fans stuck with it over and over again.
  4. I do, very much. Marvel is of course a wild card because of new properties and BP2. But I cannot fathom an Avatar or especially a SW movie making $600 million. SW likely won't touch $500 million domestic and $400 million is a long shot. We're talking domestic, not WW.
  5. JJ was also an executive producer for TLJ and said he wished he had been able to direct the script that RJ came up with. He takes some or much of the blame for TLJ as well.
  6. If they target $200-$300 million box office hits with a lower budget, then they may be okay. The ONLY scheduled Marvel film with the chance of hitting $1 billion WW and/or $500 million domestic is Black Panther 2. Strange and Thor won't do it. GOTG3 won't do it (that ship has sailed). Eternals and Shang-Chi are complete wildcards but there's no reason to project them coming close. And Black Widow? Can anyone say "Solo"? I'd go out on a limb and say that absolutely NO film has a chance of $600 million domestic in the next 10 years perhaps. That includes any Avatar movie. TROS was the last chance and they blew it.
  7. I've had a really hard time sitting through a single episode of Manalorian, to be honest. And that's from someone who actually really liked TROS. Btw, remember when everyone thought Aladdin was destined to absolutely bomb on all fronts? And now it will end up higher than TROS WW. smh
  8. The key is for LFL/Disney to actually make a movie that fans and audiences WANT to see. So they need to decide which of those 40,000,000 different ideas they should go with.
  9. TROS will have very similar legs to TLJ in the long run. That $23-$24 million is absolutely dreadful (again). Concern trolling? Are we going to continue to accuse people of this any more? With these drops, a 3.0X is unlikely. 2.80-2.90X seems more likely. So between between $505-$515 million domestic. Could TROS actually make less than BatB'17 domestic?
  10. This. Video games are NOT the way to go. Use something people already like.
  11. I think the indication is that instead of trying to bank on merchandise, Disney seemed to scale back production in order to avoid loss. Maybe they were seeing how things would pan out and then increase production if need be (like they did for the first Frozen movie). Instead-they are rushing to make baby yoda dolls lol. Truth is that no matter how TROS ends up doing, it's more in lines with POTC and Hunger Games than Potter, LOTR, or Marvel with respect to where it's ending up. And unlike certain franchises (POTC and Transformers for example) the overseas numbers aren't there to support it if it indeed does sink too far down. Btw, any updates on today's numbers? I still find it almost impossible to believe in $25 million.
  12. Pretty bad. The lack of SW merch at most major retailers this year has been alarming compared to the past 3 years. Marvel, WWE, DC, Jurassic Park, and others have decent sized sections whereas SW sections have been shrinking to almost nothing. The new movie caused absolutely no spike in sections at stores. That was the first thing that told me "hmmm....Disney must know something we don't but aren't willing to say". I thought maybe it was just near me but that is what I have been hearing from people all over. When Frozen 2 had separate sections at stores for the movie back in October and in early December you could hardly find TROS things, something was going on.
