I still think Leo, Denzel, Cruise, The Rock, and others have a certain pull. They can drop a dud but they can also help boost a film.

Ok, then we're in agreement. To me you have Brand name actors and Brand name actors that are also box office draws. You can put together an ensemble of Brand name actors together in a film that wouldn't be box office draws individually but combined they do, if that makes sense.

They'll do more. Bigger roles for Knightley and Bloom so they can woo OG Pirates fans back into the theater.

I think Pirates and Transformers need some serious introspection before they write Pg1 of their next scripts. There is obviously audience apathy going on with both, so whatever formulas they were selling needs to change.

If The Mummy settled on a tone and didn't spend so much of its runtime on THE DARK UNIVERSE, it would alright.

King Arthur had a 2 min montage of Arthur growing up that I liked. The rest is dreck. And you can tell the whole thing was his vision, his writing style is all over it. I'm legit worried about Aladdin.

Also Ezra and Ray seem to really enjoy each other's company. Some of that could translate well on film.

I saw a gif of what appears to be Arthur activating his Ultimate and it looked straight out of Dynasty Warriors

It was then when I knew I had to watch it

Really though, I'm surprised Disney hasn't fired Ritchie yet. But then again, they let the guy who directed Cowboys & Aliens and Iron Man 2 direct Jungle Book, and that seemed to go well for them.

Yeah, I understood the logic behind doing a Flash/Cyborg buddy movie. They both need characterization and they're around the same age.

I feel bad for Ray Fisher. He's not gonna get much of a boost from this huge ass movie he's in.

Guy Ritchie has two films over $50M domestic and both of them are Sherlock Holmes. So the only reason that Ritchie has any films over $50M domestic is because Favreau made RDJ a superstar.

Did it though? It took two weeks for it, a kids animated movie, to hit its $50m budget (and technically hasn't hit it yet). And it will surely be falling off fairly quickly after this weekend.

There was also an enormous amount of marketing put into the movie as well.

I would think there's not going to be too much profit made off of it, if any, in the end. Which hurts even more given The Dark Tower tanking.

It's Flashpoint, it's almost a certainty that both will show up in some capacity.

Pirates 5 did very well so I think we'll see one more to perhaps end the series. Bringing back the original cast in a full role would definitely peak interest, as well as seeing (spoiler for end of Pirates 5) Davy Jones again.

My grand hope is that Gore Verbinski comes back to direct one final Pirates. As much as I enjoyed the newest one, his impact on the original trilogy has yet to be matched in the following sequels.

What Disney wants more than anything is for Verbinski to come back and push the budget of Pirates 6 back over $400M. Pirates 5 failed to do its job of being a big flop to offset some of Disney's wins this year. Now Disney will be stuck with a completely successful slate, without a Through the Looking Glass or Tomorrowland in sight. $230M was too cheap.

Disappointing to see Detroit do so poorly, but I guess that was to be expected with the movie getting heat from multiple directions. Hopefully Katheryn Bigelow lands on her feet, because she's way too talented.

Their 2018 offerings do look a little weaker than usual. I have faith in Ron Howard, but who knows what's going on with Han Solo. Feels like fans and critics have their knives out and ready. And I could totally see Nutcracker being ignored.

A new Pirates movie needs a likable Jack Sparrow again. Pirates 5 was a decent movie, but Jack nearly ruined it with his completely over the top scenes. Jack has always been over the top, but Pirates 5 took it to an annoying level. He literally had zero serious scenes in the whole movie, except for a briiiief moment when the goat character of the franchise dies.

I don't need, or want, Jack to be some serious character, but the first 3 movies balanced it out way better than these newest 2 have.
