I'm so glad I'll have this film to point to when I explain why I think Bohemian Rhapsody was very, very, incredibly overrated.

This is selling like crazy around here. Honestly think $35M+ is in play at this point.

When I went to the preview night two weekends ago, I was pretty much the only person in the theatre under the age of 50.

Isn't Florida the retirement capital of the US? :P
Might be skewing a little stronger there. 

 

That being said, I'd be thrilled with such a performance and am hoping for more. 40+ would be wonderful.

Looking forward to this more and more every day! It'll be tough to top Bohemian Rhapsody but who knows?

With these reviews this should have been moved to Oscar season. Especially with November being so dead this year. Has both a worse chance at its multi and a higher shot of being overlooked for awards season in this release spot. Dumb move.

How is doing in the non anglophone countries? Here in italy it's doing very bad, it should make around 1M-1.2M with 500 copies, really a lot of copies. Yesterday it got a screen avereae of 248 euros, this means more than half empty screens or even worse.

I watched this the other day and it was pretty solid. Has more quality than Bohemian Rhapsody but this last one feels more like a crowd pleaser. Really didn't understand the controversy with the gay scenes, like do those scenes really create that amount of controversy? People are stupid.

As an Elton John fan myself, I really, really liked this movie. I hope Egerton gets a best actor nom cause' this is suberb job.

Lol at people discovering just now Egerton was a fantastic talent.

He oozed talent and charisma in the first Kingsmen.

This movie stole my heart !

 

Can't believe how beautifully the Mother-Father-son relationship was portrayed in this movie.

 

Elton John s parents are portrayed in this movie with such

 

humanity

empathy

understanding

nuance

 

I knew Elton John had a big heart but I couldn't imagine he was so full of love and acceptance.

What a tolerant man !

You wouldn't want to be full of resentment in your 70's, that would be very sad.

 

Go Elton !

This is going into Comedy/Musical at the Globes probably given it's actually a song and dance musical so I would say an almost guaranteed GG win for Taron.
