You've gone on an extended rant blaming audiences who didn't want to see the movie for it underpreforming. Perhaps you should blame the studio for putting out a lackluster product, and the distributor for marketing it so poorly. And you're blaming people on an online box office forum, none of whom had a hand in the making of the awful film.

You know...i’m not gonna waste my time arguing with you about this. 🙎🏻‍♀️

legendary just can't catch a break can they. their last successful film was mamma mia 2. 😕

Universal has dated an "Untitled Musical Event" movie for March 11, 2022. What are the chances it's Mamma Mia 3? :thinking:

Regardless of all the issues that the Monster-verse movies have had I think we can all agree that the biggest mistake the universe made was killing off Bryan Cranston

Zilla will go down with actuals. No way its just dropping 20%. If you adjust the 2014 movie to 2019 $ and add all PLF boost, it lost more than 60% of the audience. WB also messed it up with marketing and release strategy. This needs a open month. Would February have been better since March was taken over by Cap Marvel. Or they could have opened this in November. This year we dont have big action blockbusters in November. 

 

But this year has been meh for WB with Lego 2, Shazam, Pikachu and Zilla. It should get better with IT2 and Joker and dominate Sept/Oct.

 

Among the rest Great for Aladdin. its WOM is definitely building up and it can make a run to 300m domestic with a good hold next weekend and strong summer weekdays. OS hold is even more sensational. But there are so many movies opening over next few weeks that will limit its potential. if Aladdin had opened last december instead of Poppins, it could have had 400m domestic and 1B WW run.

 

Endgame is now slowing down way faster than IW. last week it was close and this week its like 27% below IW. Next weekend wont be pretty as well as it will shed screens even faster. Anyway it can stop its run today and still its sensational run. It will not beat Avatar without a director cut re-release.

Ever since legendary pictures was bought by Wanda. The quality in movies have dropped for sure 

 

90% movies are tailored made for China audience

 

the 2 successes were spike lee movie and mamma Mia 

 

jurassic world 2. If you count that. With all production companies that go through that movie

Gareth Edwards' Godzilla OW - 93M

 

Michael Dougherty's Godzilla OW - 49M

 

The solution is clear: bring back Gareth Edwards.

seems the people that hated Godzilla 2014 love KOTM, while the people that liked Godzilla 2014 hate it

May be one of my favorite blockbusters of all time in that case.

This would 100% kill the MonsterVerse if GvK wasn't already filmed. Edwards is the true murderer though, no recovery from that.

The only movie I would be ok beating Avatar would be Rise of Skywalker with an awesome fight scene of Luke fighting everyone else.

Look to the left, look to the right. Are there Disney films opening a week before or after GvK next year? Just so we know which movie to blame if GvK underperforms next year.

Ironically, another Disney live-action remake.. Mulan is opening on the heels of (2 weeks after) GvK next year. =/

If Zilla 2 goes down with actuals on an embarrasing degree....then....(sighs).....I dread to think what GvK will do next year.

Certainly makes the slate of franchise films even weaker than it already was next year. I feel like Fast and Furious 9 has more of a chance of being sub 200 then increasing from 8. So that basically leaves Wonder Woman, Bond, Black Widow, and Eternals as the only franchise heavy hitters. And none stand much of any chance to hit 500.
