China Box Office: General Discussion Thread (2019 the worst year for HLW)

Recommended Posts

Shazam starts with a 7.3 on douban. It is still early so ratings can go up or down but it wont change too much.

 

Douban ratings of some other movies:-

 

Infinity War - 8.1

Aquaman - 7.7

Thor Ragnarok - 7.4

Ant Man 2 - 7.3

Shazam - 7.3

Venom - 7.2

Bumblebee - 7.1

Wonder Woman - 7.1

Captain Marvel - 7.0

Batman v Superman - 6.7

Justice League - 6.5

 

Looking at this it seems not too good but not too bad either. But as I said above its an early rating that will change. And Maoyan ratings, which will come tomorrow, are far more indicative of reception and legs.

Maoyan score starts at 7.8 for SHAZAM

 

One of the top negative reviews said that the movie should be released on Children’s Day. Not before Avengers: End Game. 

 

We know which brand’s fan this is... lol

Not really surprising considering most of the overseas reactions we’ve seen so far. Disappointing though for sure. Thanks for the update.

jesus that Mayoan score is dreadful. I don't think I've ever seen a CBM get less than 8.. 

 

is 70M total still plausible?

7.8 on Maoyan indicates terrible WOM among GA. Will mean a very quick collapse for Shazam and probably not much higher than 1.5x multiplier.

Quite sad news, it looks like a lot of fun so I'm hoping for its success

This is the worst. I didn’t expect this. This is China straight up rejecting everything about this movie

I think marvel fans and many fans of other films opening are gunning for its downfall to be honest.

 

8.6% of audiences giving it below 2 (out of 10points), something is wrong. It is not that divisive. 

 

other films have at most around 3% of such scores, other than those really divisive films or artistic films.

 

PS: you don’t actually need to buy tickets to give reviews.

It is great Box Office be damned. It’s budget is so low that it’s probably getting a sequel anyways

I was under the impression you had to have proof that you watched the film to vote on Maoyan. Anyways China likes what China likes they certainly didn't care that Aquaman was a DC Film.

7.8 on maoyan is the same score as FB2 which was tracking for 45M+ debut then crashed over the weekend to 36M and ended its run with only $57M. I hope Shazam doesn't suffer the same fate :raining:

LOL this is the first time I've seen a review use a movie's release date as a negative.

So why was Aquaman spared from this petty squabble between fanbases?

What can any of us do? Lol, I loved the movie, can’t make others love what I loved. You always have to respect others opinions. It’s not like China didn’t just go crazy for Aquaman, so it’s not a DC thing.

In Korea, they call the movie childish. Maybe this comment has the same sentiment. Doesn't really matter when it is being released.

I think this movie simply doesn't have enough spectacle for China.
