  1. So with Regal and AMC shutting their doors I have to imagine this is on VOD in the near future.
  2. Yeah, that was meaningless for TLJ. From all accounts I’ve seen (people I know, RT, various message boards) the consensus I’ve seen is that people are enjoying it and are satisfied with the conclusion.
  3. And the all audience on this one is at 76% and has actually been rising. Audiences by and large are really liking this it seems like.
  4. That really isn't true at all. It may be frontloaded over its opening weekends but the movies tend to have good legs overall for big blockbusters.
  5. I mean with the way society moves on from things these days even 3 years with no Star Wars movies might be fine but they need a new and compelling story not tied at all to the main saga or its characters in my opinion.
  6. And while I won’t see the movie until tonight it’s also obvious Carrie Fisher’s death impacted the plan they did have for this film as it really did seem like each movie was going to focus on one of the main OT characters. They almost certainly would have been better off editing Last Jedi after she passed away to keep Luke alive. They wouldn’t have had to kill her off in that one but could have done whatever they do in this one and you’d still have an original saga main character to get a lot of focus.
  7. Following the tracking thread, the presale numbers were very good and seemed to be ramping up normally until reviews hit. I think TLJ being divisive hurt any chance of a major breakout and increase for the Rise of Skywalker but the movie getting a tepid response is going to be a major factor in any drop.
  8. It doesn't though. Solo was directly connected to a character in the OT and a character no one wanted to see played by another actor. I thought it was a fun movie but there was no imagination there and it wasn't a new idea bringing us new characters we hadn't seen before within the Star Wars universe.
  9. That actually should have happened already and the fact the first two spin offs were so closely tied to main saga and their characters showed a lack of vision at Lucasfilm. I've enjoyed all 4 movies thus far (and I'm still excited about Episode IX but that has been my biggest complaint thus far. I just don't think Kennedy has a good vision of what Star Wars can be.
  10. Yep, if this drops domestically and in Europe you can point to Rian Johnson. In China the Last Jedi really has nothing to do with this drop. The drop from TFA to TLJ was massive in the first place.
  11. I've enjoyed the new films but whatever happens with this one, Disney should 100% move on from Kennedy. She clearly doesn't have a vision for Star Wars at all, whether it be this trilogy or future films.
  12. They might have wanted the higher than all other Star Wars headline which wouldn’t have been true for TFA but based on our numbers most think it did beat TLJ in presales in the first 24 hours although it may have been close either way.
  13. It is incredibly unlikely. There is a lot of hype for this movie but it isn't Endgame hype. $700-750M should be the target if the movie is really well liked and received.
  14. The 63% is to Endgame's total Day 1 total right? If so that seems pretty good with about 8 hours left (from noon est) for TROS's opening day sales.
  15. Almost all films do reshoots. Solo was problematic because they basically remade the movie. People are morons.
  16. Deadline’s holdover numbers are generally pretty worthless unless they give a Friday number. They are awful with early extrapolations.
  17. Nope, despite mediocre reviews from critics it’s clear the audience loved Aladdin since it has had fantastic legs. Remains to be seen on Lion King but it’s opening incredibly well just about everywhere so far.
  18. Germany is doing fine. Second biggest opening day of the year behind Endgame. The German market just sucks these days for movies.
  19. If the social media reactions and reviews this week are glowing it really feels like this is going to explode (and I doubt Disney would be dropping the embargo this week if they weren't incredibly confident).
  20. The other obvious factor is that it is pretty clear that the re-release is going to at worst get AEG within $10 million of the record and there is just no way any studio is going to let a movie fall that short of a record like this.
