Avengers: Endgame the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, is projected to open somewhere in the ballpark of $265 million. It goes without saying that that’s a monster opening and would best that of Infinity War (though not by a lot). There’s talk that that Endgame will have a 3-hour running time, which will mean that less theaters will be […]
Sorry, I don’t buy it Wonder Woman as the ‘highest-grossing superhero origin movie of all time. Reason being, it neglect a little movie called Spider-Man: Homecoming. Spider-Man isn’t an origin movie, you say? That’s where we’ll have to differ (because it is). This iteration of Spider-Man is first introduced in Captain America: Civil War so […]
And while spiders are arachnids, not bugs, bear with me and all come clear. Spider-Man: Homecoming makes its North American debut today, and some pundits believe that it will ensnare an opening somewhere in the ballpark of $100 million. If this bears out it would make the movie the fourth of 2017–joining Beauty and the Beast, Guardians […]
Marvel Studios’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2 has–so far–earned over $425 million worldwide! The likelihood is high that the it will surpass half a billion by this week, and will more than likely finish its theatrical run over a billion dollars. It’s worth mentioning that the first movie at the end of its run […]
Off the top of my head, I think that I may have seen two Harry Potter movies, though the only one I remember is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (mainly because it was directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who did the remarkable Children of Men–one of those rare movies significantly better than the books that inspired them–more so than […]
If you ask ten people at what point a movie becomes profitable, you’ll probably get ten answers, each slightly different than the one that proceeded it.
How much of what analysts do is about ego?
Sense8 “When the going gets the tough, the tough make television.” As far as I am aware, that’s not a real quote, though it accurately describes what’s going on with the Warchowskis, Lena and Larry. Coming off the box-office failure of Jupiter Ascending (the first time I heard of it I associated it with Alfred […]
Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) may have “a particular set of skills,” that have been parodied on various shows, such as Family Guy, but it seems to me that some very important questions aren’t being asked, such as: If Mills and his particular set of skills were so effective, why is it that there will be […]
I caught Ouija last weekend, and it was okay; by which I mean that it wasn’t the worst movie I’ve seen (which barely qualifies as praise). It had moments of interest, though thematically as well as visually it played out eerily similar to movies like The Conjuring, Annabelle and Insidious (which were also produced by Blumhouse Pictures, which I hope […]
