  1. Why are you saying this over and over and over again? It's borderline trolling 🙄. If you think it's a terrible release date, then when is better? Because I don't see any other options. Also, it's already made a lot of money in SK anyway.
  2. As a mathematician I feel like I need to step in. Especially because someone mentioned correlation coefficient, and was kinda misinterpreted. Correlation in math is difined by the coefficient, a number between -1 and 1. If it's 0, that means it's completely random. The further from 0 the stronger its correlation. We know that many movies whose trailers had very high number of views, also had very high OW, and the opposite, low number of views, low OW. We also know there are exceptions and outliers, and the relation is not exactly linear. That means, the coefficient is not 1 or -1, but it's NOT 0 as well. In other words, we CANNOT say that there is no correlation. Maybe if someone has enough time to construct a statistical model we can have stronger conclution. But from I've seen, there IS some kind of correlation between trailer views and OW. Maybe not strong, but enough to warrant a discussion whether a movie will open big when it has relatively high trailer views.
  3. Much more? It will make close to MI4 in USD, which is $51m (don't know if it can make more than that, not exactly an SK box office expert). So how much more do you expect it to make? I mean it opened way bigger than I expected and then held pretty well in its 2nd weekend against the biggest opening ever. The way I see it, it's doing pretty good. I don't know, maybe my preception is wrong. In that case, feel free to correct me.
  4. Lily James was the best thing from the movie, aside from the songs. Cher did add some glamour to the movie, but it was already good withour her and didn't need any saving.
  5. Looks like it's opening well in Japan, bigger than the previous movies. Also doing really good in SK and will outgross Rogue Nation easily there. So much for the worst release dates. 😉 To be fair, it is facing tough competitions in both countries against local films that recorded either one of the biggest or the biggest opening ever. So it might not be the best, but far from the worst.
  6. Just saw Mamma Mia 2. I think it it will have long long legs. People will see it mulitple times. It was so much fun. Someone have already said it, and I agree, it's a better version of the first one, with better writing and a bit of emotional punch, something the first Mamma Mia lacked of. I wanna see it outgross the first one.

    Casually ignoring Indonesia in which JW2 already made almost $14M as of July 1.
  8. Wow South Korea! And yess Indonesia! With that OW, it will likely cross $10m in Indonesia and if it does, then it will be the 5th consecutive $10m+ movie for MCU (SM:H, Ragnarok, BP, IW). Before that, only 4 other MCU movies managed to do this: The Avengers, AoU, IM3 and CW. I'm amazed at how Ant-Man became this popular here. Maybe because the tone of the movie fits our taste. It's light but not stupid, entertaining, funny, with cool actions, and more relatable than Doctor Strange or GotG.
  9. I don't think Antman is popular enough to beat Thor Ragnarok so I expect The Nun to enter the list next. Supernatural horror films are big here. Annabelle 2 made almost $10m and Valak is as popular as The Avengers lol. I even think it could outgross The Conjuring 2.

    Isn't it normal there for a movie to lose most of the screens to new movies? Here in Indonesia it is, due to limited number of screens and theaters. In its 2nd weekend, JW2 lost many screens to I2 and FIVE local movies, that were taking advantage of the extended Eid Holiday. Thanks to this, now there are theaters with only 4 showtimes for JW2 while I2 has 12. But other theaters have the same showtimes for both. At the biggest chains in Jakarta, JW2 has 130 showtimes a day in its 3rd week of release, while I2 has 192 in its 2nd week. So considering all the competitions, JW2 actually held quite well. It's already a huge success here anyway, by outgrossing JW1, being the 3rd biggest Hollywood movie this year so far (and 4th overall), and it will end up 3 times as big as I2.

    I don't know, I feel that the anticipation for A4 is even higher than IW. Before IW was release, people were like, "Yaaay all the superheroes will be seen together in one movie! Can't wait to see it!". Now it's like, "WHEN IS THE NEXT AVENGERS MOVIE?? I NEED IT NOW!!". This is not POTC3 or Mockingjay 2. Unlike in those movies where the cliffhangers didn't work, people actually care, and are emotionally invested in the MCU characters. But still, for A4 to increase from IW, box office wise, it will depend on the movie itself. Will it be at least as good as IW? Will it deliver what people want aka an epic finale/ending? All the ingredients for A4 to be good are already there, and I believe in the studio & filmmakers, so I would say yes. It will be unprecedented though, because in the cases where the finale part 2 increased from part 1 (BD2 and DH2), the part 1 movies weren't the highest grossing ones in that series. Whereas in A4's case, IW is already the biggest one. But there's a first time for everything.

    I think I'm in the minority because I love 3D lol. If a movie has a 3D version, I always choose the 3D screening. The ticket prices are either the same or around 70 cents higher (in USD). So, not that much different from 2D. Unfortunately for me, 3D screenings are getting rare these days. Now they're mostly for IMAX and 4DX only.
  13. A lot of 50-70% movies on RT are actually entertaining. I hope this is one of them. Going to find out in less than 12 hours.
  14. No reviews or reactions whatsoever? I'm going to see this in less than 48 hours and I'm very excited, but I need to know what to expect.
  15. Avengers 4 doesn't have to move because it most definitely will be released on the last weekend of April here, just like AoU, Civil War, GotG2 and IW. Also, the competitions after 3 weeks or a month don't matter. Most movies here die after 3 or 4 weeks. John Wick 3 is not a competition for A4 anyway. Now Detective Pikachu though, if it's released on the same weekend here as in the US, will take some of A4's screens and could prevent it from breaking the record.
