    Won't fall into bust category though. Its already at 17 million worldwide on a 10 million budget. Its marketing budget would be on the low end so its going to be closer to needing only make 1.5 times its budget to turn a profit so its already there. If it turns a profit, which this will, its not a bust.

    Underwater made 6 million(50 to 80 million budget). Kristen Stewart with back to back bombs.. 1917(90 million budget) performed well 37 million knocking Star Wars to number 2.. Like a boss(29 million budget) and Just Mercy did about 10 mil each

    Next week is Bad Boys for life and Dr Dolittle.

    I think Bad Boys might flop. I mean, it's been 17 years since the last film, will anyone, including Will Smith fans care? Doolittle could well surprise with the box office win.

    I don't think it will flop, I just don't see it being bad enough to flop the problem with Will smith movies isn't that they can't sell them to people is that they cost way more than should cost and they have a hard time returning the investment.Bad Boys for life is 90 million buddy cop movie it should be something like 40 to 60 million. But they say it is tracking for 40 to 45 million dollar opening on MLK weekend and that Ride Along and Ride Along 2 made 48.6 million and 41 million on the same weekend in recent years. Funnily enough Sony is projecting it to make 38 million.

    Plus the two weekends after is weak competition imo, then competition heats up

    Jan 24 The Gentlemen directed by Guy Ritchie starring Matthew Mcconaughey, Charlie Hunnam
    Jan 31 Hansel and Gretel ? The Rhythm Section?
    Feb 7 Birds of Prey
    Feb 14 Sonic the Hedgehog, Fantasy Island

    I think Bad Boys 3 will at least do solid but 1917(and maybe Dr Doolittle) is going to cut into it a little.

    Reaction to the film might depend on how awesome Jon Snow is as the Black Knight. And let's hope he isn't forced to kill Sersi...

    Eternals is such an unknown right now, similar to GotG, but once people saw the trailer and Gunn's vision, people were on board.(or they at least knew what it was going to be like) The same will have to apply to this - we need to be shown what the vision is for this franchise.

    In late December a few films were released the final 2-3 weeks of the year. The waiting game for a few depended on what the foreign markets would do as I waited . But well the dust is starting to settle on 2 of the films right now. One of these was one of the last animated films 21st Century Fox worked on as the sale to Disney happened and the other was a musical that many have joked has to be a drug induced nightmare.




    Total Box Office : $59.7+ million worldwide

    Total Production Budget : $95 Million

    The past couple years musicals have managed to do well at the box office. Last year "The Greatest Showman" with Hugh Jackman became a worldwide hit and before a few others did very well. So Universal planned a big screen musical of the Broadway hit "Cats". The film starred Taylor Swift , Jennifer Hudson and Judi Dench in roles. When it arrived in opening week it crashed and burned with $6+ million opening weekend. To date domestically the film has done $26+ million.

    Universal a few weeks ago is projected to lose $70+ million on this film. Comically the film was up for Oscar consideration and Universal pulled that campaign given the reaction to it. This after 2-3 weeks where like a video game they sent an patch to theaters for upgraded special effects for the film. There is only 3 markets left for it to open in and its doubtful it does anything better.




    Total Box Office : $116+ million worldwide

    Total Production Budget : $111 million

    Released by 21st Century Fox , this film would arrive on Christmas weekend. An animated film based on a story , it starred Will Smith and Tom Holland in voice roles. The film opened ok but ended a terrible year of 21st Century Fox films that performed very terrible for new owner Disney. The film has 9 markets left international to open in but those markets aren't major ones and its doubtful the film will not be a bust at this stage.

    I think what hurts Spies in Disguise is the initial trailer heavily pushed the "Spy turns into a pigeon" aspect which alot of people got irrirated at. Many comments were literally "An animated spy movie with Will Smith was my jam....then you turned him into a pidgeon, pass"

    I think Disney should have pushed Spies into the 1st or 2nd week of January here. Instead of a very competitive Christmas slot.

    I'm confident that "Cats" will become a cult classic along the lines of Rocky Horror Picture Show and "The Room".

    Supposedly some theaters are having "meow-a-longs" that are already selling out. It might take them like 20 years to return a profit for the movie, but it will turn a profit eventually.

    That's not what it's about? That's why I passed, no interest in Pgieon Will Smith.

    Cant wait till Saturday night to watch Bad Boys 3. Is this tracking to do ok? Or Bomb?I know Doolittle is in trouble. Its opening weekend at my local theater only has it playing twice a day.

    I think the Pidgeon thing isnt as heavily pushed as the trailer suggests

    Bad Boys just broke the record for January previews, it'll probably be fine.

    Dolittle's the one that's expected to bomb big time, because of dumpster fire reviews and a ridiculous reported budget that's higher than the ones for the other wide new movies this month (The Grudge, Underwater and Bad Boys) combined.

    Apparently Doolittle had a executive meddling problem. As we saw with early DCEU films nothing good can come from that.
