  1. It's not a curse as much as it is the new normal. Why are people still acting as though covid had/has no impact? There are people, whether you agree with them or not, who have not and maybe even will not return. I'm also quite surprised Dune will be WB's biggest hit this year. How did they manage to convince people to watch that in the cinemas and not everything else? In normal times you'd think it'd be outperformed by most everything else.
  2. Why the meltdown? It's clear that the theatrical market is not what it once was and yet NWH has already entered the top 20 all time. Did you all really think that it would challenge Endgame or TFA or whatever when there are demographics that still haven't returned to theatres? Shouldn't the performance of WSS/Sing 2 etc. show you this? Weird. Also, why do people keep saying this movie will drive subscribers for any movie opening early digitally? I can guarantee that most movies will not do so. You really think Encanto will push people over? So since it's gon
  3. Also, not sure why everyone is surprised at Andrew Garfield being the best Spider Man. I thought it was common knowledge, no matter what opinions may be of his movies. And really neither Holland movie has been that good either.
  4. If you put in a little thought, the whole thing unravels. Why have they all forgotten who he is? They are just meant to forget he's Spider Man. He was friends with Ned before he was bitten (I assume, can't remember). MJ only finds out in the last movie. How does Happy date Aunt May without ever seeing Peter lol. It's stupid. Then on top of that, the universes are colliding because they know Peter Parker = Spider Man, so if they now all forget, then wouldn't Garfield and Maguire Spider Man universes also no longer know Spider Man? lol
  5. Wiki said Strange was due out May 2021 and Spidey July 2021 and obviously it's now Spidey in Dec 2021 and Strange in May 2022. How can DS2 be the same if it used to be before Spidey? Is that why they're doing all the reshoots now? Otherwise, depending on if Strange learns anything in his movie, he just decides to open the multiverse again in the next movie? That wouldn't make sense. Oh wait, damn it's been a long pandemic. I was thinking of May 2020 and that both movies were already in the can then.

  7. They didn't even credit Rhys Ifans or I must have missed it. I thought it was weird how little both of them were featured, so I assume they weren't really in it? All just CGI? Also, can someone more keyed in let me know - Dr Strange 2 was meant to come out before this pre-pandemic, but in the trailer at the end, it seemed like Dr Strange 2 is based on what happened in this film...so did they have to reshoot the entire film or something? Just because of the pandemic and Sony wanting to release Spider Man first or what's the story behind it?
  8. Wow impressive for Shang Chi. Doing more than I thought it would without a pandemic. PA should hopefully be dead and so too 'day and date'. I don't even think 45 days is long enough, the old system worked fine, but I guess that's the best we can expect moving forward.
  9. Are you suggesting that December 4th was when it hit? Not sure what your point is, it's not like the tail end is much lower than the peak. Plus Missouri is the state which hit the headlines for doctors not putting covid on the death certificate to save face or some crap. Wouldn't be surprised given how political it is.
  10. Also ironic that Disney is also responsible for a movie proving theatrical exclusives do well. I mean, they don't deserve the credit considering all these are leftover Fox movies which I assume are contractually obligated to be exclusive releases. But lame that even in these times Disney is still #1. Ugh.
  11. What misinformation are you talking about? Veering wildly into fake news here. Are the full pediatric ICUs in Florida a sign that people should not be worried about their kids who aren't approved to take the vaccines? Movies whose target audiences are demographics that have been vaccinated & without dependents should do well if left as theatrical exclusives, but when no animated movie has topped $60m yet, there's obviously hesitation. Yes, most if not all of them have been available on streaming platforms, however if they weren't, you still wouldn't be seeing the bl
  12. So HT4 being sold off for only $100m. Do we think that that's a good deal for Sony? Apparently it only cost $65m which is dirt cheap for CGI films - not that the HT films have ever looked good. I never watched any of them but the trailers look awful. If so, Sony is basically taking $35m - I guess there's the marketing cost, though not sure how much they did advertise. Seems pretty damn bad to accept only $35m for one of their few franchises. But then, no CGI animated film has managed to cross $60m since the pandemic started so perhaps it is a good deal. Tha
  13. Shang Chi looks like a generic superhero movie and Eternals currently looks like a bad space opera. The atmosphere in the latter is just dead. Hope Free Guy can hold well next weekend despite Delta so that we can have more evidence on why being a theatrical exclusive is good. And obviously it has to be well received so not like Snake Eyes.
  14. Paramount should have sold Snake Eyes to Amazon instead of The Tomorrow War. Pratt is a star, Golding is not. Worldwide potential for sci-fi blockbusters is huge, for flailing has-been franchises it's not. Disney were smart to start planning for a global streaming platform early and start to expire their film rights. Paramount+, Peacock and WB/Discovery - how are any of them realistically going to expand? All of them are owned by bigger companies - well I suppose WB/Discovery is now sort of free from clashing objectives/perspectives but I thin
