Nobody gives a flying fuck about Tarkin besides nerds though. Also, Tarkin wasn't advertised.

 

Well this is a BO forum.  We are all nerds here.  So what's your point?

It would be fun for the rest of the year to guess which movies will out-gross Solo WW.

Mamma Mia 2?  Aquaman? Bumblebee? Venom? Alita? WIR 2? Mary Poppins?  Unknown Chinese breakout film? the possibilities are endless :lol:

It is a holiday in the US which is why that drop is even more abysmal. Without a holiday it would be dropping closer to 75% :sadno:

No way. I thought people enjoyed it. Why the huge drops? Any guesses?

So if 33m holds, Solo's Friday proper is only 1m higher than Apocalypse's. Following that gets it 73m for the 3 day and about 87.5 for the 4 day. Apocalypse's multi gets it 172m. 

 

I think Solo will get a boost on June 15-17 thanks to Incredibles 2 and Father's Day. That's the only positive outlook though

Deadpool is fine. They made back their money already.

If it goes higher from 33 to say 36, 90+ 3-day is possible with a big Sat bump from true Friday

 

14

22 [36 od]

28.5 (+30%)

26 (-9%)

= 90.5

Openers don't get big Sat bumps like that this weekend. Look at the history of this weekend if you don't believe me. It's lots of sub 10% increases from Friday proper, even some decreases. Hey, Solo could be a huge anomaly I suppose, but just pointing out that's what it would have to be to get a big Sat bump.

"with a $80M-$90M three-day"

is somebody getting fired from Lucasfilm for the "brilliant" idea for Solo film? or Bob Iger will wait if they can self-correct?

I have no idea to be honest. But I thought if it got $12.5M for Friday it would be a decent drop but I guess not.

kind of reminds me in 2009 where sites were joking about which movies would end up having a higher gross than Terminator Salvation

Hey everyone Solo is one of the biggest franchise collapses in cinematic history and DP2 is holding abysmally BUT....IW is set to have a strong hold! And really what else matters? 

 

Image result for party gif

To be fair, after the mind-blowing masterpiece that is AIW, everything else is condemned to pale badly by comparison. 

 

BTW, I loved DP2, but I also understand why the GA doesn't love it as much as the first one. The first one was 50% SH movie and 50% parody, whereas the sequel is basically 90% parody. Something that I enjoyed, but the GA was looking for something a bit more conventional. 

 

As for Solo, I am not expecting to hate it all (only gonna watch it after I have watched AIW for the 4th time) but the immense damage inflicted by the uber-clusterf*ck that was TLJ is pulling it down into oblivion...

The amount of moviegoers affected by a minor character being recast compared to the likes of Han and Lando is infinitesmall.

A drop like that is not "fine" even if they made their money back. Let's not sugar coat abysmal numbers

It's going to have made $5b in box office alone in 4 films you twit.  

 

If you think Solo is so far doing well at the box office, well, I guess denial isn't just a river.

Yeah I was just seeing how 90+ could happen over FSS. Seems nearly impossible with 35 or less Friday.

Why is Deadpool dropping that much? Is it not a holiday in the us? Deadline is not to be trusted with projections this early

 

I would not trust these projections. Deadpool and Infinity War with only 90% increases against a mid sized opener in Solo seems low

Let's wait. I still think numbers will go up. The drop is too harsh

DP2: $770M

AMATW: $750M

MIF: $670M

HT3: $600M

Skyscraper: $580M

MM2: $575M

Solo: $560M
