Bumblebee
Animated Spider-Man
Aquaman
Mary Poppins Returns
Creed 2

Something is still telling me that Han Solo is going to get bumped too.

That's pretty packed, and it's funny to think that all those movies combined will probably still make less than the next 2 Decembers.

Its sadly how a lot of people go to the cinema.

People deciding to see a film at the last minute or getting to the cinema and picking whatever film has the most interesting poster or is starting in the next 5 mins or which one theyve been bombarded with non stop TV adverts.

A lot of theaters seem to be charging an inflated $25 a ticket for Star Wars IMAX showings on the Thursday preview night I have noticed.


I assume that price hike gets counted into its BO returns.

Oh it's way too early to call, but it was the comparison offered by Sony and I just examined it a bit further.

I don't think there's any way it will be under. Right now I'd say 220m. Globally should be interesting. I have my doubts it'll crack 500m that weekend (China day and date would have done it) but it should be close.

To be fair China cares as much about Star Wars as the US about Transformers.

Same.

It will out-gross Avatar and be the #2 film of all time domestically (I mean, is there even anyone doubting this does 700 mil+ domestically?). But fall short of the 936 mil domestic that The Force Awakens brought in.

I see the range on this one being 770 mil to 830 mil domestic.

Really? You think it will gross more like Rogue One? That seems improbable. A spin-off film last year did over 530 mil. A full out sequel to the film that did over 930 mil grossing more like the spin-off doesn't add up to me.

It's like predicting that Avengers 3 will gross more similar to Ant Man than Avengers 2.

Im probably a little too biased as to how I personally feel about Star Wars as a film...(so yeah Im like 100% wrong lol)

Maybe it will if the film is bad. It will be interesting to see how they balance this film, but I think Avengers 3 Part 1 will not be received well. It will be about getting all these people back together as Thanos comes to power. Avengers 3 Part 2 should be decent though and will probably do better than the original Avengers.

Last Jedi could drop 30% from Force Awakens and still be the third highest grossing film ever. Shit, it could drop 50% and be #11 domestic, overtaking the original Star Wars. It will be fine.

That's how much it cost for me. They're calling it a fan event. And I noticed some theaters are doing the same thing for Thor so I guess this is something Disney will do going forward.

They have more levers to pull to guarantee that too, like turning the screws on theater owners to bully other films out of imax screens and shaving down their cut of the ticket sales or else no disney movies for you!

males over 25 represented 50% of the audience and females over 25 were 27%, while males under 25 represented 15% of moviegoers and females under 25 were 8%.

So how do they collect this data, anyways? Are the ticket clerks selecting these when they sell tickets without asking your gender/age?

I was a little taken aback by it when I saw it. But I gave in... essentially $80 for 3 tickets.

Is Wonder Woman still playing anywhere other than the US? It has 496k to overtake Spiderman globally, be shame to get so close but not surpass it!

Also 593k domestically off a true X4 multiplier.

By the looks of it, it has 100k domestic left in it :(

They waited 4 years to announce Frozen 2. I'm sure that we will get a Zootopia sequel, but I am not expecting it soon.

It's a Star Wars film. It's going to drop, be seen as a disappointment for some people overreacting, and still make a shit-load of money, because it's Star Wars.

I've stopped checking those threads lately (the box office disappointment threads) since I know the response is just going to be constant facepalming. Might go into the Thor one since I expect some decent jokes in there.

Gotta overtake Wonder Woman domestically for that, and Spider-Man Homecoming for worldwide. Unless Thor does absolutely batshit numbers.

Between Affleck and Whedon (will Whedon even be part of the junket, I wonder. Will Snyder?), that's an unfortunate amount of people in the news for the wrong reasons on one junket.
