Sherlock Holmes held its own against the first Avatar so Christmas would be a fine release date for this as potential counterprogramming (assuming Avatar 2 doesn't get pushed back again), especially since this will be R.

This has a much larger potential than Sherlock Holmes did though. They'd be leaving a lot of money on that table. And a sci-fi spectacle action movie really isn't counter-programming.

Does it, though? A Bad Boys for Life type of gross (domestically, overseas will be much bigger assuming the global box office will have returned to normal by then) would be pretty good for this, especially considering the sequels rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Barring Papa Feige working his magic, I feel like it could be a strong contender for #1 for the summer next year, assuming it'll play in that season of course. There was a lot of hype for its initial announcement, plus Keanu and nostalgia are as big as ever.

I'd see the sequels affecting this as much as the prequels affected TFA or Jurassic Park sequels affected Jurassic World. I think there's enough nostalgia for the franchise now especially because of Keanu Reeves gaining popularity again from the John Wick films.

Nostalgia and Keanu should provide a huge opening but the legs on this could go every which way given that a Wachowski is still at the wheel and they've never been interested in playing it safe. A lot of people here seem to just take it as a given that the audiences are gonna love this, which I find weird.

they are not going to release it right after Avatar because WB will want IMAX theaters for Matrix and they can't get it with Avatar having them sewn up. However, Avatar will likely move again

If AVATAR moves, WB needs to put BATMAN in Christmas. Let the matrix open in October

At this point, I think if there's a lot of action and the movie secures a China release date, it should be able to become the 2nd highest grossing R-rated movie (650 mil WW-China and 150 mil China is possible even with weak legs).

Am I the only one who thinks this should simply move back a year to May 20, 2022?

I mean a 6 year delay is enough. Can't let the cost run up to 400 mil now
