For a change of convo: My most anticipated summer wide releases

 

1. The Farewell

2. Detective Pikachu

3. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

4. Godzilla: King of the Monsters

5. Yesterday

6. Where’d You Go Bernadette?

7. Midsommar

8. The Last Black Man in San Francisco

9. John Wick 3: Parabellum

10. Late Night

Good list. Personally for my own, I'd take out The Farewell and Midsommar, and add Toy Story 4, and Ma, and flip the order of the films you listed, around.

 

I'm really looking forward to Yesterday in particular. That trailer made it look like an absolute delight, and I'm a big fan of The Beatles.

Yeah, a Jurassic Park situation pretty much (Getting all time WW crown while not getting domestic crown)

There are plenty of markets where AEG won't be topping the all time list, China for example, will still have Wolf Warrior 2 and The Wandering Earth as top 2. 

So in the end, TFA keeps its domestic crown, AEG snags WW crown, pretty good chance Avatar keeps OS crown, and many markets keep their own crowns. Hard to recreate a Cameron duo situation of across the board domination.

Yes, although JP secured the #1 all-time overseas title by a good margin as well. 

 

Not sure if it hit #1 all-time in some of the European markets like UK/Germany?

 

I think it hit #1 all-time in Japan in USD but not local currency (E.T. retained that).

I think that's the case to a certain extent.

 

But I also think that Seth Rogen is at the same point of Michael Cera around the time of Scott Pilgrim: not sure it matters how good the film is, how good his performance is, how good the reviews are or even how much he deserves it - audiences have just decided they're kind of done with him.

 

(Of course far more can be said about Scott Pilgrim but this isn't the place) 

 

But audiences are, at the moment, pretty much done with every comedy they get. To be fair, there is a considerable lack at the moment. They are either aiming for the african-american audience or women this year and we're already in May.

Ah Avengers has a 'dissapointing' weekend, and its straight to attacking Cameron, Titanic, and AVATAR.

Been away from the forum since The Last Jedi rleased, and its like i never left.

Yeh I seen that, just to describe it as  “fallen on its face” sounds a bit over the top, when it’s still the biggest film ever in America (unadjusted) for now 

There is no “biggest film in America” in the concept of my post, it failed to pass titanic with 35 years of nostalgia, the end. Some people are acting like passing titanic WW is no big deal because this and that and in the next 100 years blah blah blah.

 

Also all these “biggest overseas”, “biggest in the U.S”, “biggest in Luxembourg” e.t.c rankings are meaningless, biggest in the WORLD is where it is at.

Wanna do a count about how many posts in this thread are from Cameron fans and how many are actually attacking the movies you mention ?

Honestly, wake me up when November hits: Frozen 2 and Knives Out are my Most Anticipated.  Rest of the Summer should be fun though!  MIB looks like a cute Thor and Val AU, and Hobbs & Shaw looks like a mind-numbing blast (seriously, can't wait).

Definitely not disappointing weekend at all. It is just some people let their irrational exuberance cloud their projections.

 

When actuals come out it will be just about tied, or just missing the 2nd weekend record, people seem to forget that TFA also had CMAS as its Friday which helped inflate the 2nd weekend a good bit.

 

I have been saying 150m is the target all along (50% drop from true weekend last week) but people insisted on apply multipliers from movies that operated on a completely different inferior level to Endgame to come up with 165m PLUS predictions so when the estimate comes in a 145m they are let down. 

 

I will never understand why people think it is a good idea to apply multipliers from a movie that was making only 2/3rd or 1/2 of what Endgame was on weekdays, then use those movies multipliers for the weekend. 

 

I  like you come here from time to time and it always drives me crazy when people makes apples to oranges comparisons and then somehow feel it is a letdown because it could not hold up to it.

Dana Steven's from Slate would disagree :lol:

Waiting for Thanos

Avengers: Endgame is like Samuel Beckett with superheroes.

[Just the title, not the link since the review has spoilers]

Name a more iconic duo than Disney and under-predicting their Sunday grosses of literally almost every movie they put out.

 

Somebody on reddit is trying to convince me that it's 100% impossible for a movie to have more than 1-2 M higher in actuals than the studio estimates.

 

Saying he's a box office expert.

 

I'm... speechless.

 

It literally just happened last week-end.
