  1. I don’t really see the correlation between Joker and police brutality against POC, especially the black community.
  2. 1. Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2020) 2. Solo: A Star Wars Story 3. Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith 4. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 5. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017) 6. Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi 7. Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back 8. Star Wars: The Mandalorian (2019-) 9. Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope 10. Star Wars Battlefront (2015) 11. Jedi Fallen Order 12. Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018) 13. Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker 14. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones 15. Star Wars The Clone Wars 16. Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens 17. Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi 18. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  3. One thing that I have noticed: Aren't Frozen and Frozen II now technically the highest grossing movies with no male lead characters / only female leads? Because all movies that have grossed more than Frozen/Frozen II have either both male and female leads or only male leads. I guess Kristoff could be counted as a lead character in Frozen, but he definitely played second fiddle to Elsa and Anna in the sequel, so it would still apply to Frozen II
  4. In fact, I´d even argue that Saoirse Ronan is a bigger box office draw than Margot Robbie. Little Women is gonna do $150M+, Lady Bird did $79M, both Hannah and Brooklyn did $60M+ and they had all Saoirse as the central actress. That is an impressive resume, considering 3 of those 4 movies are original.
  5. You basically have described Robbie´s career tho? All of Robbie´s biggest movies are also based on IPs (Suicide Squad, Birds Of Prey, Tarzan) or are enemble movies/led by much bigger stars than her (Bombshell, The Wolf Of Wall Street, Focus, Once Upon A Time). Really, the only “successful” movie Robbie has sold on her own is I Tonya, which only grossed something in the mid-$60Ms I believe. One mildly successful movie doesn't suddenly make you the bigger star. Robbie still has to prove that she is a box office draw on her own.
  6. Also interesting thing to note: Frozen II is now the highest grossing movie with female-only leads (if I'm not mistaken)
  7. A pity that it's gonna get so close to $1.5bn worldwide and $500M domestically, but will likely not reach it 😕
  8. A pity that he wasn’t able to star in 1917. It would’ve enriched his filmography significantly.
  9. So I guess this settles Frozen’s crown as the biggest animated franchise internationally. Although an argument for Despicable Me /Minions could also be made.
  10. Gavin Feng also said something like this a few days ago: The whole futuristic aesthetic of the Prequel Trilogy was much more appealing to the Chinese market than the Sequel Trilogy, which has pretty much only focused on barren and empty planets. But ofc Disney/Lucasfilm for some reason tries to avoid acknowledging the prequels as much as possible, so they doubled down on the original trilogy nostalgia, which evidently didn’t really work outside of TFA in not only China, but in many other emerging markets. Which is also why I don’t think The Mandalorian is really building back goodwill for the Star Wars brand on a global scale. TM is pretty much a sci-fi Western, so it’s very appealing to Star Wars’ core fans in North America, where also most of the buzz and hype is coming from. But I personally doubt that it would be as appealing to international audiences as it is to Star Wars’ core market, so I hope Lucasfilm doesn’t just think that the next right thing to do is to make movies like The Mandalorian, because that’s getting lots of hype right now, cause I really can’t see movies like that exciting audiences worldwide.
  11. Agreed, It’s gonna be very tricky. Continuing to please older fans will most likely lead to further decline and diminishing box office returns, but would be the “safer” option, at least initially, while trying something new and fresh could capture the attention of new audiences, especially in emerging market, but it could also completely backfire in that everyone, new and old, rejects that approach. LF/Disney has some crucial decisions to make.
