It’s not gonna make $2b? A flop. 

It would have done it without the revolution in Chile, same for Star Wars / sarcasm. 

 

Well, Star Wars should be unironically doing like 20m USD in Chile if it followed market growth but the franchise is stuck doing prequel numbers in admissions. 

 

That's a big problem for the franchise going forward.

With a $373,500,000 global opening, is $1 billion even on the table?

With the Holidays season yes, unless the movie starts to develop a bad reputation.

bracing myself for people on a box office forum to claim that a 373M global opening to a film that cost $250M to make is bad. 

 

 

No it is actually an amazing result, unprecedented. Congratulations to TROS.

Actual might end up around $178M if holiday boost on Monday helps the Sunday evening shows. Needs a 14.7% Sunday drop for $178M.

That's a horrible start for TROS. Could easily end up sub-500M DOM.  90M day 1 and couldn't equal that in day & 3 combined with pure drops both days. That suggests bad WOM.

Have to wonder if this is the final straw for Kennedy and her exec team. 

 

Ironically they look to be in good shape on the streaming front with The Mandalorian and with the Caspian & K2 series and the Obi-Wan series in development.

This is what happens when you give the franchise to a plagiarist who’s incapable of creating something original and his best idea for a sequel was to make a remake, and a pompous director who couldn’t care less about the past or the future of the franchise fooling everyone that he subverted anything when in reality the only thread he left open for SW 9 was EVIL Kylo vs GOOD Ray for the third straight film.

 

Everyone from Iger and Kennedy to JJ and Johnson are at fault for the forgettable mess this trilogy ended up being. It’s only legacy, destroying the original films and the entire impact of Episode 6 by the first 5 minutes of TFA.

 

Shame on Disney, shame on Iger and Kennedy, shame on JJ and Johnson.

Hmm, I like Force Awakens but there is some truth in that.😣

And this movie is beloved?

In comparison yes. Wom was toxic for TLJ

 

The level of panic and hate in this thread is just sad.

99% RT, 85 MC, 99% audience rating TROS wouldn't sniff Avatar. It's audience base has been shrinking for awhile now, rapidly internationally.

The Rotten Tomatoes audience score is rather inaccurate as it technically only allows for North American reviews - unless you're talking about Metacritic's audience score.

The Rise of the Skylwaker has very strong support on the bros youtube channels.
