Aquaman has the worst OD presales for a superhero movie this year, far below AM2 and BP. $60M will be tough.

So I meant... $60M in two days will be tough. :sparta:

WOM effect can be crazy in China, that is why following Chinese BO is so fun.

Amazing for Aquaman. This and Venom easily decimating other solo superhero films. Shows films can smash any supposed ceiling for their genre as long as WOM is excellent.

Just realised the thread is only 20pages away from 2000. Aquaman, Venim,... seem to creat a lot of response, curios how long it will be till 2000 is reached 😉

Great for Aquaman! Can't wait for it to fully break out tomorrow and the upcoming week.

slapstick was big in the 30s but died off when WW2 hit

westerns ruled for 30 years.....and then died off as well as pirate movies

Realism movies in the 50s 60s and 70s were big, they thought no one wanted to see the fantasy "Star Wars" then they fell off

Disney films fell out of favor for a while in the late 70s-early 80s

sooner or later fatigue sets in or something new comes along

 I say this was the the big one. hard to top

Superhero movies are more versatile than everything listed there. Also, those genres fell out of popularity because there was a sharp drop in quality across the board. Whereas the SH genre is just beginning to branch out atm

Wait for DC to hit its stride, X-Men to take over the MCU and all the Spideys swinging in full force!

At least one of Ant-Man 2 or Aquaman won't make it (AM2 very unlikely at this point). Still an amazing year considering the top 2.

We have to be near Peak Superhero? I mean, it can't much better(/worse) than this.

Superhero genre was kind of flat in last few years. But

AntMan and The Wasp did well compared to rest of the world and Venom and now Aquaman.

So has the market lifted or it's just coincidence.
