  1. I don’t really see the correlation between Joker and police brutality against POC, especially the black community.
  2. 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
  3. Also interesting thing to note: Frozen II is now the highest grossing movie with female-only leads (if I'm not mistaken)
  4. A pity that it's gonna get so close to $1.5bn worldwide and $500M domestically, but will likely not reach it 😕
  5. A pity that he wasn’t able to star in 1917. It would’ve enriched his filmography significantly.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 buildin
  8. 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.
  9. I would argue that we didn’t even get spectacles as epic as the Battle of Bastards with the Sequel Trilogy. Honestly, even the final battle in TROS with all those thousands of ships and Star Destroyers felt very underwhelming. So I don’t really trust Lucasfilm to deliver something like what you describe with the new Star Wars movies, especially not with the first movie, where they would first need to establish the timeline and the new characters & setting. General audiences have no clue what The Old Republic is about. Also based on how Lucasfilm is develop
  10. So does Frozen II have a chance at topping Finding Dory’s domestic gross or will it end up somewhere lower?
  11. So TROS is not even gonna make into the top 10 overseas grossers of this year... Disney/Lucasfilm really needs to work on Star Wars´ international appeal with their future projects. Because this is really not promising for future Star Wars movies.
  12. Yep, this also concerns me. I hope Disney & Lucasfilm don’t expect the new movies to reach $1bn right out of the gate just because 4 out of 5 Disney SW will have done so (assuming TROS reaches that mark too), cause otherwise they’ll probably go into panic mode and hectic short-term decisions is not what Star Wars needs right now.
