I've seen it 3x and it gets better with age. Pros and cons remain the same (except for the last con which was actually addressed in-movie).

 

Bit of a shit move posting all this. Jeez...

Star Wars has a big issue in that the fan base is getting older yet they aren’t attracting younger audience 

 

the nostalgia of sky walker, darth vadar etc is gone now 

 

Kids growing up obsessed with marvel 

 

this is too me is just the start of big decline for start 

I agree with this. For all the flaws the prequels had, they were good for attracting young fans and selling merchandise. These new movies have very little going for them to attract the new audiences. You can milk the OT nostalgia only so much before it loses its effect.

Marvel is doomed (to mediocrity) from now on - with or without Feige.

 

But without him - yeah, they'd be even worse, lol.

At this point I wouldn't be surprised with 20% Sunday drop. I know calendar configuration and all but still..

These new films did a very poor job at attracting new fans

 

Almost every young male teen I know back during the prequels lost his shit over revenge of the sith.

So it isn't inconceivable that it could possibly hit sub-170 million? If the decrease is tremendous on Sunday? In the 30s?

I think the prequels are still garbage. Not because I'm a big butt hurt fan of Stars Wars because I'm not but because of bad writing, directing and acting. I'd watch the sequel trilogy over the prequels any day of the week.

Yes. Which is why the prequels aged well with the audiences: those teens are adults now who remember them fondly. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point in near future Disney switches from the OT nostalgia baiting to the PT nostalgia baiting.

yikes. Have to block someone who is super annoying trolling about SW9 now in multiple threads. I thought he would stick to OS thread but this is getting worse.

But you can't argue that they were beautiful and rather lush to look at ~

 

That's one of the issues that one of the Chinese users made yesterday, more so the fact it feels like a western instead of a Galaxy far far away. I mean we've never seen anything on the scale of a Coruscant, for example.

Hopefully, after this, Disney fires Kathleen Kennedy. I have nothing against her as a Producer. She was great back in the day. She just isn't a good fit for Star Wars. She doesn't understand the franchise and allowed VII-IX to happen without a general sense of where the trilogy was going. That was a big mistake. Also, all the Director firings and Solo going way over budget to become this bland whatever. Please, Disney, get rid of her, or move her somewhere else where her Producing skills are actually good.

Interesting thing is Jumanji is having slightly better increase in tickets on fri/sat at MTC than F2. So Jumanji should have a good run and I think will finish in high 200's? Rock is definitely one of the biggest stars around at least domestically.

If the movie makes under 190, Kathleen Kennedy is fired, Iger should hire George Lucas as the President of Lucas Film

I have some genuine questions: What makes you think George Lucas would want to come back to run Lucasfilm? Was he not the person who sold it to Disney originally?

 

And why is he regarded as someone who would be the saviour of Lucasfilm? He already directed and screenwrote all of the prequel trilogy which, whatever your personal opinion, was definitely divisively received overall among fans, and overall pretty mildly or poorly received critically. (Perhaps not as relevant, but I was surprised to learn that of the original trilogy, George Lucas was director and sole screenwriter of only the first film, A New Hope. As a non-fanboy when it comes to Star Wars, I totally assumed George Lucas had directed all of those films.)

 

So, even if we accept the premise that Kathleen Kennedy should be fired, and/or that JJ & Rian were not good choices, I'm still trying to figure out why George Lucas is seen by some as the obvious solution, either as producer or director. *shrug*

 

Peace,

Mike

Exactly!

 

I can't argue with any of that at all - and it was very telling that when Dan & Dave were announced to not be a part of Star Wars anymore - after Game of Thrones - that Lord and Miller (can't remember which one) tweeted a single word in presumable-contempt of Kennedy.
