Rocketman will be the only film in the top 7 this weekend with fresh reviews. 

 

Everything else is rotten and people need to go and see it.

Jeez Pets 2, the first one made $368m DOM. Crazy drop.

I don't even understand how the first one made that much. It's just an okay movie, and kind of forgettable, even for kids.

Weren't they the only studio of the big 6 to not have any flops in 2018?

The 15:17 to Paris and party of life

Man, I love MiB 3. Didn't realize so many weren't fans. Looking forward to the latest installment too.

I also quite like MIB3, I just like MIBI better.

 

MIB2 sucks though.

Toy Story, Spidey and Simba are coming. I'd add Midsommar but not feeling a fresh RT score for that one. Obviously, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Hobbs will be fresh too. Potentially S sry Stories as well.

Maybe not. That's director has had all fresh RT stuff so far. Last few Fast flicks were fresh too. Just assuming...

Random nonsense... Doc Ock hospital scene in Spidey 2 still favorite scene in any superhero anything outside of Darkman's "Take the fucking elephant!" and Catwoman's birth in Batman Returns.

I guess I'm not too surprised that MIB International isn't putting up good numbers. I'm still plenty willing to give it a chance because of Thompson and Hemsworth, but it didn't feel like it ever really got much buzz going. In re-watching the earlier films this week, I can't help but feel like one of the earlier sequels should have been a passing-of-the-torch movie in which Will Smith's character shows someone else the ropes rather than the role swap in the second one or the time travel shenanigans in the third one - or even in this new one (though I haven't seen it yet). At least the studio could play off of nostalgia more directly with Smith's involvement.

 

As expected as it is, I'm bummed that Late Night didn't find much of an audience. It's a pretty funny movie.

I wouldn’t call them outright flops, both doubled their budgets and I’m sure did well on streaming. Especially Life of the Party.

"Big" 3 animations so far this year : LEGO2, HTTYD3, SLOP2

105.8 + 160.8 + 130 (dom guess) = ~397

 

Just 30 odd more than SLOP1. 

 

TS4 will outgross those 3 combined.

I feel like if TS4 really opens to $200m, it has a strong chance of ending up No. 2 for the year domestically because that would lock 600m and make 650m+ very likely. And I'm still not convinced that Lion King, Frozen 2 or Star Wars will be able to get to that mark (Lion King probably will).

With that horrible start last weekend I thought $70 million would be hard for Dark Phoenix, now it looks like I was way overestimating this train wreck, which won't even hit $60 million, let alone come anywhere close to $70 million. And this weekend, this is legendarily bad, I mean with a bit of "luck" it might even finish under Fant4stic, and that thing opened quite a bit lower, at $25.7 million. With this film it feels like they made one bad choice and then another and they just kept going and no one told them to stop because no one cared enough. What a sorry way to end one of the premier franchises of the last two decades.

 

And the bombs keep on coming, good thing we have the toys returning next week to save the summer from its current slump.

WB selling Shaft to Netflix internationally ages ago was a wise move then lol 

It was a wise move regardless of DOM performance. 2000 Shaft made only 40 mil OS.

I'm still not sold on that $200M OW. I've been visiting the presales thread often and no one there is predicting $200M based on presales. More like Dory numbers.

We’re only 5 days away from TS4 open now. Nobody would say 200 is quite impossible, but it would be a big (huge) surprise based on current data.

the prod budget is 160-200 according to schwarzenegger. will be interesting to see if they go ahead with the r-rating. miller delivered a great r-rated debut film.

DARK FATE is a guaranteed R.
