  1. As we all know that in overseas box office grosses, exchange rates are a major variable that can affect the overall gross of a film considerably. In an attempt to remove this variable and see closer to the actual image, I am compiling the local currency grosses of four 2 Billion dollar films, Avatar, Titanic (including 3D), Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and converting them to dollars at current exchange rates of the respective countries. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EeD1sXigLMJpYL4lCufDkuGM_zcI5jDH77io-GykQrE/ The sheet is still work in progress, and I would like help from you all. You can contribute, by sending the local currency gross or correct dollar gross (Since these figures are from Mojo they will be bit incorrect) of your country or countries you track. You can send your entries by commenting here or mail me. Thanks and let's hope we get the objective done soon.
  2. Maybe it is too early for this topic.After watching EP7,I think China might be the only market,STB beat EP7.STB teaser is more likely be Chinese tastes.
  3. I'll start TPM: Podrace ATOC: Anakin ROTS: bad guys win ANH: Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon ESB: Hoth ROTJ: Action TFA: Desert (Jakku in this case)
  4. Alright boys and gals, the time has come to speculate on the TITLE for Star Wars: Episode VIII (Spoilers for Episode VII below, you have been warned!) As a reminder, here are the titles of the previous 7 entries (is there even 1 person here who needs reminding?) Episode I - The Phantom Menace Episode II - Attack of the Clones Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Episode IV - A New Hope Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Episode VI - Return of the Jedi Episode VII - The Force Awakens Episode VIII - ??!! All we know is that it's a sequel to Ep 7 and features mostly the same characters, along with a few addition. What would be a worthy title? I'll start! I think the title could be Star Wars: Episode VIII - Shadow of the Empire Why? Because they're all still living under the shadow of the Empire's former domination. Kylo Ren still wants to pursue his goal of honoring his Grand Father, the First Order is still behaving mostly like the Empire it was before, or tries to, and the good guys still feel like they're fighting more of the same. The former Empire is still relevant 30 years later, and its legacy lives on as a remnant of its shadow lingers upon the galaxy and the New Republic. What do you think would be a worthy title? Disney will announce the title within the next months so... don't miss the opportunity to speculate!
  5. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/boxoffice/comments/444omb/gone_with_the_winds_reported_adjusted_domestic/ All credits go to /u/capdeporc2005, I'm merely linking to his post and encouraging discussion "I thought I'd verify GWTW's claim to being the domestic box office champ. As it's well known, its cume has been accumulated with several re-releases over many decades. Given how often this film is hailed as the all time great in terms of money making, it's surprising how little data there is documenting its performance. BOM for instance doesn't break down the domestic gross by each release, instead lumping most of the presumed receipts with the original 1939 release. And Guinness World Records reports that GWTW has adjusted lifetime global receipts of around $3.4B, but likewise doesn't bother to break it down. The only source offering a breakdown of the domestic receipts by release is IMDb, so I started from there. Year Reported domestic gross* Adjusted domestic gross (tickets sold)** Adjusted domestic gross (inflation)** 1939 (Initial release) $14,150,000 $518,628,261‡ $241,279,895 1941 (Re-release) $5,560,000 $187,483,200 $89,647,246 1942 (Re-release) $1,520,000 $47,457,778 $22,102,198 1947 (Re-release) $3,514,000 $74,057,550 $37,348,777 1954 (Re-release) $5,271,000 $98,743,400 $46,442,996 1961 (Re-release) $6,700,000 $81,856,522 $53,110,832 1967 (Re-release) $29,221,000 $205,277,525 $207,361,489 1974 (Re-release) $7,279,000 $32,813,888 $34,994,862 1989 (Re-release) $2,403,316 $5,103,263 $4,593,764 1998 (Re-release) $6,750,112 $12,132,931 $9,815,284 TOTAL $82,368,428 $1,263,554,317 $746,697,343 *The receipts figures for the years 1939, 1941, 1942, 1947, 1954, 1961, 1967 and 1974 are as reported on IMDb. The receipts figuresfor the years 1989 and 1998 are as reported on BOM. **The large discrepancy between gross adjusted for tickets sold and gross adjusted for inflation is due to the fact that increases in ticketprices over decades has outstripped inflation. For example, the average ticket price in 2015 was $8.43 while, adjusted for inflation, theaverage ticket price in 1939 was $3.92. ‡ This is an overestimation because the initial release of GWTW included much more expensive road show advance-tickets. IMDb also has alternative figures for GWTW's receipts in the years of 1939, 1941 and 1942 of $20M, $11M and $4M, respectively, but this is almost certainly wrong according to Wikipedia: Currently, BOM lists GWTW's adjusted lifetime domestic gross as ~$1.7B, based on unadjusted receipts of $189,523,031 supposedly earned before its 1989 re-release, but offers absolutely no breakdown of when these figures where earned, and even more troubling, possibly adjusts the entire total based on the value of the $US in 1939. I am almost certain that the adjusted lifetime domestic gross for GWTW is wrong given that no breakdown is given for the unadjusted total, and is probably based on unverified newspaper reports reprinted ad nauseam. It's likely that there's been much confusion regarding this film's domestic and global receipts and no one has ever bothered to set things straight. Star Wars' adjusted lifetime domestic total stands at about ~$1.5B and given its release date (38 years later thanGWTW), its figures are likely much more reliable. SW is likely the actual domestic champ." ---------- What do you think? I know that some of you guys broke down GWTW's gross, is it consistent with your numbers?
  6. If there is one Blockbuster series critics have a soft spot for it's Star Wars, the original was even nominated in the Best Picture category , and even the prequels were maybe even given more slack from critics then the GA. overall the star wars franchise has been nominated for 19 Oscars, in 11 categories including 9 wins (granted most were for the OT). I feel like the nostalgia factor and the fact that (from the looks of it) great care that was taken in making this film it will muster several nominations, visual effects and other technical awards are pretty much a given, original score seems incredibly likely, and high profile awards just may be a possibility. but what do you think? Previous nominations for Star Wars movies: Best Art Direction 3x Best Costume Design Best Sound 4x Best Film Editing 3x Best Effects, Visual Effects 5x Best Music, Original Score 3x Best Picture Best Actor in a Supporting Role Best Director Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen Best Make-up
  7. This is the least active of all the sub forums for franchises. I say WHY...it is the greatest series of all people!!So who would you like to direct a potential new trilogy of movies?
