It’s not, actually. Like, I understand what you intended, and they basically got you on a technicality, but Captain Marvel is definitely not actually a sequel.

That's not how sequels work. It was the first iteration of Captain Marvel on the big screen and even the marketing was pretty distant from EG up until the 2nd weekend.

It’s pretty ridiculous to say that the 21st film in a series is not a sequel.

I also think of the movie Breakthrough, opened last April. Granted it was inherited, but it's Disney now.

what was it a sequel for? 

being set in the same universe does NOT mean that all the movies are sequels to each other. Ant-Man and the Wasp was a sequel to Ant-Man and NOT to Avengers IW.

Look Captain Marvel is not a sequel but at the same time it doesn't really refute @VENOM's point does it?

 

Anyways next year we'll have 2 Pixar originals and most likely 1 WDAS original.

They didn't greenlight it but they bought it. It's theirs. They still allowed it to open in theaters. I didn't even see the word 'greenlight' on the question.

Captain Marvel was set up in Infinity War (credits scene but still).  It was heavily advertised as having Nick Fury in it, a character many know as being from other movies in the MCU.  Maybe it’s not a direct follow up to any particular movie, but if you make the same movie but remove any references that connect it to the MCU, I guarantee you it doesn’t make anywhere near as much money.

Next year will also have a full load of Fox and Fox Searchlight originals.

Then I’ve got a pretty simple question for ya:   

 

What movie is Captain Marvel a sequel to?

what's wrong with comic book adaptations? most movies are usually adapted from novels/books or biographies of real people.

There is nothing wrong with them. I am more into comic book adaptations myself but I don't see much difference between that and disney remakes since they are both well known property that has been sitting there for some time

you mean make a different movie? yeah different movies usually perform differently. this is like saying cutting all the Joker scenes from TDK would mean it wouldn't make anywhere near as much money no shit dude.

So TS4 also couldn’t massively breakout despite the growing reviews? Hope it does the higher end of the OW.

 

Just not fun to see animated films not breakout as much as some of the biggest live action blockbusters.

The worst part of seeing Toy Story 4 was being exposed to that Uglydolls trailer since it's apparently not out in Australia yet....

Still kind of holding my breath and waiting for RTH or Charlie to confirm the $48M. If it falls down from there I swear...

Hope TLK doesn’t end with a disappointing OW like all the rest of the underperformers this summer.

Staying flat from true-Friday would give a Saturday lower than TS3’s first Saturday.

 

I just don’t see it. This HAS has to increase like I2, right? But TS3 stayed flat when factoring in midnights. Ugh I’m not comfortable with this. Tomorrow is so huge. It could determine so much of TS4’s run with regards to not just OW but legs.
