I'm not buying that, the ending feeds directly into a sequel(s), they (Landau, Cameron, RR, Rosa) talked about it a lot (trilogy).

Sure but it didn't make the bucks. That's what i meant. After that performance going stright to a sequel was never on the table. Plus Fox being aquired would have made things complicated either way.

 

Also, i think it's too soon to assess how it's doing on home release. It was never going to explode out of the gate. It'll either find audience through time or never.

Cameron is the one who warned everybody that if it doesn't make enough $ that will be it. I think RR was waiting or told to wait until the digital/physical release to see if it would catch fire and make enough to put the movie into the black. If Alita moves forward it won't be with RR as director, this new project will probably eat up 2 years of his time. Right now it's not looking good. 

RR's Netflix project was already in the table before Alita came out. So nothing changed, really. They have to keep themselves busy, same with Rosa Salazar and Amazon's Undone.

 

The sequel being a thing or not, it'd likely still take a year at the very least to get some kind of script ready. And R.R. isn't going to write it. They have idle time.

 

And if they somehow dare/manage to greenlight a trilogy it'd take even longer to prep.

 

And btw, Rosa's Undone is looking pretty good and coming out next month. After "The Boys" Amazon might just keep raising the bar.

DOM HV sales are not helping arguments for a sequel.  Hopefully, this will be compensated by higher international sales (in line with BO).

I don't see a sequel happening unless Cameron himself was spearheading it, and that's not happening anytime soon.

You know it's funny you say that since Alita is way overperforming relative to DOM BO. Easily beating titles, like Glass, US, Lego that all were stronger domestically. It's also beating out Edge of Tomorrow in units sold even though that movie released in 2014 while the market was stronger. Or crushing Tomb Raider (which apparently is getting a sequel?). So not only Alita is likely to sell in line with international BO, it'll likely make much more comparatively with the market.

 

It's currently estimated at $16,499,161. So hey might just be symbolic but the movie is now over $100mn domestically.

I'm surprised by the Tomb Raider sequel, probably low budget sequel.  I guess we can hope with a low budget sequel for Alita.  Get rid of the high profile actors first and focus on the main character a little but more next time.

Closest you can get without paying for insider info is The-Numbers.

EDIT : I don't think there is a subscribe method to get access to the raw data unlike Nielsen Soundscan for music.

Domestic numbers to date are nowhere near enough to make up the loss, hopefully the rental PPV & Foreign markets are significantly stronger. 

 

It's not looking good on the surface.

Alita was lucky to make a small profit, I don't think Disney will want to push it's luck with funding a sequel.

This doesn't make a lick of sense.

 

This is one of the best accepted movies EVER we're talking here. The real profit for the first movie is in the sequels, you just have to make them to cash it in.

You can spin it any way you want, but Alita has simply not done the kind of business it needed to do to get a sequel.

 

That's the problem living an fantasy world:reality always comes crashing in.

No kidding, though I genuinely don't mind the more reasonable fans bumping it to discuss blu-ray sales. That's harmless and they're fans at the end of the day.

The Shay drinks haters' tears for breakfast!!

 

My movies (Alita, Aladdin and now the Joker, which I adopted 10 months ago) are way better than most of your movies (many of which became miserable fiascos) - and wrote history for 2019. Live with it.
