  1. This club is simple. Will Disney have 5 films over $500m domestic this year? Avengers: Endgame is already one, so we need 4 more. Will TS4 / TLK / FRZ2 and TROS each reach $500m domestic? Historical precedent (nostalgia, the Disney "machine", release schedule, the previous films in the franchise) suggest all of these CAN reach $500m, the question is will they all do it?
  2. So my first topic here after joining. As we all know they Disney is currently ruling the world cinema, and completion is becoming one sided quickly, things have come to a point tgat 1 billion is considered underperformance for some of Disney movies whereas 190 million OW too, such are the expectations from Disney nowdays. It is competing with itself. It's like Disney saying "I Am Inevitable" and Disney itself replying "I Am Disney". . . . . But on other spectrum is the Marvel brand, especially MCU, built after selling rights to their more popular superheroes and starting with not so popular ones in comparison had now become a Box Office juggernaut, recently overhauling Avatar as one m the biggest WorldWide grosser, it is simply the biggest Brand currently. . . So what happens if we put these two box office giants against each other? I know that MCU is under Disney but in terms of a hypothetical scenario where MCU detaches from Disney, starts doing their own things, and (another hypothetical scenario) have added boost of X Men, F4, Deadpool and others. . . In this certain scenario who will hold uppar hand, Disney with their properties or Marvel with their every character rights with themselves? Well Marvel be able to stop Disney dominance or will the Disney juggernaut roll over Marvel and then again will get MCU under their wings? Shout out your opinions, and please don't say they this is impossible scenario, because it is clearly made as a "WHAT IF" series, you can call it being inspired by another What If series. So buys & girls, ladies & gentlemen, let's discuss the future of Cinema & Box Office if these two Behemoths were ever to clash with each other.

  4. As we all know now.....Disney has an interesting thing when it comes to their live action remakes of their animated films. The first one that they ever made, was 1996's "101 Dalmatians" with Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil. At the time...that film became one of the highest grossing films of that year with $320M WW and spawned a sequel that came out 4 years later. Then 14 years later....the next film that they made: 2010's Alice in Wonderland...which was a large box office hit, earning over $1.025B WW. Then they did it again with films like Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book and most recently....Beauty and the Beast. They all were box office successes, biggest one being "Beauty and the Beast" with $1.263B WW. And now with films like Dumbo, Mulan, Aladdin & The Lion King being scheduled for release slots.....i was thinking to myself: What more live action reimaginings of animated films would we want/dream to see being made? Also....they don't necessarily have to be....just from Disney. They could also be American Non-Disney animated ones from other studios. Let's see which live action remakes of animated films....we want to see being made. They can also be great movies if they stay faithful and give respect to their animated counterparts, while doing things different and offering some new stuff. Here is my list: Disney: The Black Cauldron The Hunchback of Notre Dame Hercules Non-Disney (I would love seeing other studios do their takes of the animated films they've distributed) The Swan Princess (Sony) Anastasia (Fox) Quest for Camelot (Warner Bros) The Road to El Dorado (Dreamworks) These are my own choices. Comment below which live action remake of an animated films, you wish to see.
  5. 1. Zero: a stunningly and beautifully crafted animation with quintessential execution and delivery paired with an emotional, perilous, and lost lorn plot structure that will leave audiences appalled and teary eyed. 2. Paperman: Disney's return to critical acclaim stature, Paper-man offers gorgeous animation topped off with a heartwarming tale about love. 3.

La Luna: One of Pixar's best offerings animated shorts wise, La Luna delivers and then some. 5. Partly Cloudy: Creative, hilarious, and heartwarming. 6. The Maker: Depressing yet oddly heartwarming. 7. Students: Unconventional to a degree yet enticing and adventurous in its political message. 8. Descendants: Thought provoking world with a powerful ending. 9.

Coda: Dark, brooding, and thoughtful, Coda offers something animation is keen to avoid. 11. Yearbook: A must-see this animated short is simply amazing. 12. Sweet Cocoon: Entertaining yet offers a thought provoking ending about life. What are your "Best Animated Shorts?"

  7. Neo's Reasons For Club: -Lack of competition. The last big movie to have open is BvS which will likely be at 6-7M. The Huntsman opening 2 weeks before will likely be ay 10M or less. -The Winter Soldier saw an increase of 47% over The First Avenger a similar increase would yield an OW of 140M at the minimum* Civil War’s opening weekend is the first weekend of May (The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Age of Ultron) have all made 175M+ openings on this date. Iron Man is joining the movie as is Falcon, Spider-Man and Black Panther among others. Has an A-list cast that includes Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Daniel Brühl, Scarltt Johansson, Sebastian Stan and Frank Grillo. Has the Disney marketing machine. -Marvel has been on a hot streak post-Avengers. -Will be seen as Avengers 2.5. iJack's Reasons For Club: Okay, since the rule for the "The 2016 Comic Book Movie-Mageddon thread. Rank the 2016 CBMs against each other in this thread. Read first post for more details." seems to focus on superhero films to be released this year, and the single active club on the main regarding Captain America: Civil War seems to be this one, I think it's fair to open a club that represents those that actually think this film will go breakout when it's released coming May 6th, 2016. EDIT: I was informed that Neo started a opening weekend thread last year with Captain America: Civil War over Iron Man 3's Opening Weekend, Tele and the mods decided to merge both threads and now I'll keep updating the club on Neo's absence. May the force be with you, Neo. While my personal opinion is that this will get very very close to gross what The Avengers: Age of Ultron did on its first weekend ($191m), the club for that scenario is already taken, so I thought it'd be cool to have a club that it'd put the third movies from both Captain America and Iron Man, since that would be a dispute between two films of Marvel Studios. Some have claimed that my excitement over this film's success at the box office is just my optimistic side, but people also got surprised when Deadpool went gangbusters, when me and some very few were predicting that for quite some time. I don't think I'm being optimistic by saying that Captain America: Civil War will gross more than Iron Man 3, both on its opening weekend AND its domestic totals. Why? Because while The Avengers: Age of Ultron felt like an Avengers adventure and it was marketed as such, I think Marvel Studios has been very clever on marketing this and focusing on the Captain America's and Iron Man's schism that they have been hinting since the first The Avengers film. Unlike Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War feels like an event film to me, and one that the general audience seem to be very much on board with, judging by the latest numbers from Listen Media after the Super Bowl: Captain America: Civil War, just like The Avengers, seems to me like the culmination of everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been leading to, and I feel that two superheroes that are friends and allies - a friendship and alliance that we've witnessed happen in the big screen for four years now - fighting over a disagreement on how to deal with their powers and responsabilities (yes pun intended, here's your no-prize) is something that the general audiences are responding very well and Marvel hasn't even started their marketing blitz yet, which is bound to get kickstarted with their first trailer to be released quite probably in the next two weeks. Even before that, my reasoning is that this isn't being marketed as a solo Captain America film neither should be: even though he is the focus, this is a film focused on his ideological and physical conflict with Iron Man, the fact that the film is reportedly being raved as Marvel Studios best film like Devin Faraci reported, it's the icing in the cake. This is a film that has being literally marketed as Avengers 2.5, and while the focus is Captain America and Iron Man, Spider-Man is bound to show up for the first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I feel that Marvel Studios has been doing an astonishing work on making these films resonating with both adults, young adults and children. The intereactions on social media with the hastags #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan seems to me that clicked with the audiences, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans are constantly interacting with the fans and reminding them of the film and even got into a twitter fight with Deadpool which was hillarious. I'm going out of my gut here, but I do think that Iron Man 3's $174m OW and $409m Dom are achieavable thresholds for Captain America: Civil War, especially with the fire power that they have for this film that Iron Man 3 didn't have for that release.

  8. With the release of Zootopia, something has made me perk up a little bit; how long can Disney sustain this box office fire streak or as others have labeled it: Disney's Resurgence Era? After Walt Disney's unfortunate death, Walt Disney Animation Studios went through an arduous era in which a lack of creativity and drive resulted in the brink of extinction only to be brought back by Oliver and Company/The Little Mermaid. Anyone familiar with Disney's history knows that after Oliver and Company/The Little Mermaid, animation classics began to be churned out by the Disney factory which not only resulted in gargantuan box office successes but also critical acclaim. This era of Disney's life would be known as the Renaissance Era and was a pinnacle point in Disney's career as an animation studio house. As with Oliver and Company/The Little Mermaid, Bolt/The Princess and the Frog (debatable) brought a reignited interest in Disney and their products. Soon enough, Disney began to haul out animation success after success and reached fever pitch with the phenomenon known as Frozen which not only became at one point, the fifth highest grossing film of all time unadjusted but obtained the crown as the highest grossing animated film of all time unadjusted. Frozen was followed by Big Hero 6 which amassed over $220 million at the U.S. box office and over $650 million worldwide! Disney released their 55th animated feature; Zootopia which opened to unanimous praise and gargantuan box office success: will become only the 10th animated feature to cross the $300 million domestic mark, became the highest grossing animated film in China and currently stands at No. 10 on the all-time charts, and could become the 4th animated feature to cross the $1 billion mark. So, my question is, how long will Disney sustain their box office success? Will their future releases become modest hits without any significant impact on Disney's brand, will they become box office successes, or will they become the calm before the storm? Will Moana, Frozen 2, or Gigantic prove to be misfires? Beginning in 2008, with the release of Bolt, Disney began their comeback into the animation world. How long will it last? Disney Resurgence Era: - Bolt, 2008, $309 million WW - The Princess and the Frog, 2009, $267 million WW - Tangled, 2010, $591 million WW - Winnie the Pooh, 2011, $44.7 million WW - Wreck-It Ralph, 2012, $471 million WW - Frozen, 2013, $1.274 billion WW - Big Hero 6, 2014, $657 million WW - Zootopia, 2016, $800 million - 1 billion WW ~ Approx. $4.4 billion WW w/ an average gross of $550 million WW per film and 89.5% (positive) average critical reception Upcoming Projects: - Moana (2016) - Frozen 2 (N/A) - Gigantic (2018) - Wreck-It Ralph 2 (N/A) Oscars: - 12 nominations (3 short nominations) - 5 wins
  9. Time for another dip into the madness pool partially inspired by that pesky force awakening. Remember how this year is the year of Universal and nothing can stop that? Their closest competition, Disney, is about 850m behind Universal domestically for the year so far, with only two movies left for the year opposed to Universal's four remaining films. So Uni has it in the bag right? Not so fast! Did I mention those two yet to be released Disney films are Pixar's The Good Dinosaur and a little film called Star Wars: The Force Awakens? And what is Uni's remaining slate? A quaint Jolie/Pitt pet project, a small Tom Hardy crime drama, Krampus the Red Nosed Reindeer, and Tina Fey the Movie: Guest Starring Amy Poehler (opening against SW). Now Universal's 2015 grosses are currently at $2.328b. They are unlikely to go much above $2.4b with the remainder of their 2015 grosses or maybe not even hit that mark (say another 25-30m left for Steve Jobs, Crimson Peak, Everest, and Jem combined and maybe 50m this year for Krampus, By the Sea, Legend, and Sisters combined). Disney has grossed $1.477b in 2015 year to date. Assuming Uni ends the year in the $2.38-2.42b range, here's essentially what Disney films need to gross DOM between now and January 1st for Disney to pose a legitimate threat to Uni's crown: SW: 575m+ (needs at least a 240m+ OW and great WOM for this) TGD: 290m+ (needs at least a 105m+ 5 day opening and great WOM for this) Bridge of Spies: 30m+ (needs its great holds to continue for this) Here are links to the year to dates for both studios for those who want to see all grosses that count: Disney: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/studio/chart/?view=company&view2=calendar&timeframe=ytd&yr=2015&studio=buenavista.htm Universal: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/studio/chart/?view=company&view2=calendar&timeframe=ytd&yr=2015&studio=universal.htm So who's in this craziness?
