  1. It is pretty unusual because MCU movies typically only has ads on social media for TV spots length. A whole trailer that's 2+ minutes is too long for an ad especially on Youtube (of course this is Sony marketing but it's still unusual). And I don't think I subscribed to Sony there, so this ad movement has a pretty wide reach. We typically only get regional ads in my country. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the same situation in other countries. I also mentioned that it has Endgame hype behind it hence many people checking out the actual video and giving it plenty of likes (although the 1st trailer already did have plenty so it's basically maintaining its initial hype and then some). And people on Youtube have been watching a lot of Endgame press/promo interviews lately, before and after the movie came out, so it wouldn't be surprising if they also ended up watching this 2nd trailer.
  2. Just watched the trailer 2 as an ad on Youtube. It wasn't a related video either. Wouldn't be surprised that the big bump of the trailer views could be because of that plus Endgame hype.
  3. Yes. I brought this up in the EG OW thread. Asian countries, particularly East Asia, have the collectivist culture (similar to herd mentality). Whenever that one gets combined with consumerism, everyone's gonna scramble for a particular product, be it food, movie, clothing, etc. And since I live in that culture as well, I have been swept away by hype several times 😂 Avatar 2 has that potential. Like "everyone has to see it" potential. (Sidenote: one of the funniest example of this was the Honey Butter Chips craze a few years ago in South Korea.) I know this is a BO forum and movies are also tied with consumerism/consumption and there can be cases studied as to why some movies overperform or underperform in different territories aside from just usual causes like culture or nostalgia.
  4. I remember there were several articles up about how bleak box office 2019 was up until March. And now we got even higher than what most people thought were the OW ceiling. GA really broke their piggy banks for Endgame 😂
  5. I'm still looking for the weekend breakdown but Endgame earned P937,521,966 (lc) and is already the 2nd highest grossing movie in the Philippines behind only Infinity War's P1.217B+ (lc) 💀 Edit. Infinity War had 5 weeks to get to that final gross 💀 Link
  6. Depends if the gov't itself wouldn't be swept away with the potential mania. Collectivism when tied with consumerism is a common phenomena in Asia. But the nationalistic nature may kick in and prevent it from getting ahead of WW2. Unless a potential WW3 (if one is even getting made) gets to $1B+ first before Avatar 2.
  7. Some people specifically mentioned Avatar. They don't want that movie to remain #1 and want Endgame. China has weird patterns for blockbuster but one thing has been consistent for them, if something takes root like a trend or a fad, they will cling to that. Avatar 2 will most likely be that. It already has many want-to-see ratings despite having no promotions at all. Avatar has "nostalgia" there. However, I am not saying it'd be like 3B floor 🙄 I'm just saying I can see China going crazy over Avatar 2. I don't belong to that group.
  8. It might make $1B from China alone. The rest depends on other territories. 3D isn't a fad anymore in many places. It's up to that movie if* it causes another 3D resurgence. Though it's funny how many people on Twitter (under those news tweets about Endgame's OW) want Endgame to get to $3B. They really don't like Avatar having that crown 😂
  9. Thanks. I was thinking of Scarlett earlier but I wasn't sure. And hers was unique because one was voice and the other live-action. Too bad TJB was almost close to $1B. BP was released in February though while IW was in April. So it wasn't consecutive but they did star in those 1st two billion-dollar movies.
  10. Brie Larson stars in the 1st two billion-dollar movies of the year, billion-dollar movies in 2 consecutive months, and #1 and #2 movies this weekend. Pretty cool trivia. Has another actor done all these before? Genuinely asking the trivia folks here.
  11. Fox was the offeror in this scenario. Any other studio buying it will always come out having that kind of industry share. Hate on Fox for offering it in the first place.
