I'd like to take a quick moment to thank this community for making this type of box office discussion possible.  Minimal vitreol, delight in the yin/yang of predictibility/surprise, and enjoyment at the wonder of it all. 

 

I stumbled onto this group in 2008 at BOM, the same year a certain audacious franchise got underway.  Blockbusters give us the joy of shared experience and this community gives us another tangential shared experience. 

 

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

Age of Ultron must feel like that poor kid from ... i dont know ... probably Florida ... who wants to be part of the cool kids club but just came short of joining and now sits on the sofa, boiling in jealousy and sorrow.

Anyway, not to leave the thread on a negative note, I know I personally had the best weekend.  It was a 100% whirlwind down in NYC with the fandom BFF.  I think we watched End Game more than we slept (add in Captain Marvel, AIW, and the two Broadway shows, and that's definitely true).  We actually tried to fit in one more showing, but my body was physically like: No.  You need a real meal.  So we went to dinner and just fangirled over Markus & McFeely for two hours.

 

The pes de resistance was I had a Family showing for already scheduled for Sunday -- where I got to take the couple that owners the Local Comic Book Store.  These two are basically the glue that holds the local Geek Fandom together up here.  They run the Comic Book Expo and the Independent Comic Festival.  They've been running their two stores for thirty years -- and they've been making sure that the place was kid and female-friendly WAAAAAY before it was clic or folks "got woke".  Such good, good folk.  When we walked into the IMAX, he told me they've never actually been to an IMAX movie before.  So their reaction to the screen was wild.  And it was just amazing to sit next to them, feel their energy, see laughing and crying and gasping.  It was such a moment.

 

That's my biggest take away from the movie, and why I really hope it runs the table through May and June.  It didn't feel like a movie.  It felt like a Cinematic Experience.  

 

It was that collective energy of the 5PM Fan Event Showing where 200 people were all screaming the exact same phrase at the screen during one of The Big Moments.  We didn't get together and plan that.  That was pure cathartic release after years of anticipation.  It felt so special.  The movie feels special.

 

I doubt I will ever experience something that eutrophic in a movie theater again.  The only thing I keep thinking about is Star Wars in the 1980s, or even LOTR: ROTK in 2000s, or hell, even watching that damn ship break in half and sink in Titanic.  It's these wild, big moments that movies, and movie theaters, are made for.  And I love it.  I just loved it.

The most fascinating fact about the history of the OW record holders is that an R rated movie actually took the record.... and held it for two years!

 

That will never happen again.

Wow...

 

 

this Weekend is crazy.

 

Also, that number 357m is so satisfying (but the fact that it didn't increase 100m from IW but rather $99.5m is ugh)

Sorry, still absolutely bloody impressive.

Close enough to round up to $100m gap on Infinity War opening, lol

Important bit is that it'll look like $207/257/357m in any summary. Precision math can look the other way on this one....

Art Is Dead: A Play in Two Acts

I remember Kermode talking in a podcast with Jack Howard about how incels complaining about Captain Marvel should be locked in a basement and handed a steelbook copy of Under the Silver Lake. Not really sure what the general consensus about the film is outside of that.

If it drops 55% or less it could break Monday record, (I think that's highly unlikely lol)
