I was thinking Baywatch was gonna lead to The Rock kind of dwindling as a box office draw, but I underestimated how well Jumanji would do. I mean Kevin Hart is a pretty good draw as well and Jack Black too and Karen Gillan in a skimpy outfit. I should've known better.

That's a sharp drop for Star Wars, no?

It lost 1,142 screens so the number was going to drop quite a bit.  But the per screen dropped $1,800 too. Pretty big drop.
Oh Dandy...you came and you gave without taking!

It's hard to call something that is gonna make over 600 million domestically a disappointment, but I'm guessing they were expecting a little more for Last Jedi. Probably not what Force Awakens made, but somewhere in the 750 million domestic range. It's gonna end up finishing below Jurassic World domestically. Maybe, we are already entering Star Wars fatigue or something. I wonder how the Han Solo movie will do.

They still make a crazy amount of money but the way Disney releases it almost everywhere at once kinda fucks up the whole rewatching it multiple times value that Star Wars of old had. Now the draw and marketing seems to be "Watch it before it gets spoiled." and "Freak out about it or enjoy it and forget about it within a couple of weeks."

Also something like the way they forced theaters to carry it on the biggest and best screens much longer than damn near all new movies get might fuck things up for them in the future.

It does feel like the nerd rage was especially strong with this movie; even Red Letter Media, who do a good job skewering that culture, is falling into that trap.

That might be part of it. Force Awakens was the first movie in a decade but we also had another one last year and are getting one this year and next. I get that they'll make money regardless but The Last Jedi was the first film (not counting Rogue One) that I didn't actively try to see in theaters (saw the Disaster Artist the weekend it was released instead).

Is Jumanji really that good? My parents took my son and he loved it but they hated it.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

I watched it with the family this weekend and everyone really enjoyed it. Fun family movie that hits all the right notes and there's nothing really stupid or grossout so that alone made me happy.

I saw a lot of teaser TV ads for it but not a lot from critics or anything review wise.

We could get at least one week with "#1 movie in America" added on. There is also a second book series as seen through the eyes of the dude, so we might get 3 more movies....

I am more amused by the fact Jumanji in worldwide total gross is gonna surpass every comic book movie from last year... and it still hasn't opened in Japan. So it's gonna break 900 million somehow.

I guess no one should doubt how beloved a movie Jumanji was. Having some big draws and an attractive red haired lady helped too.

A little surprised Game Night beat out Annihilation but I also see the former being a better movie to see as far as varied demographics go.

Annihilation seems like it'll face an uphill battle going up against: A Marvel flick, a kids movie about a classic character, a comedy cast with well known actors, Jumanji's staying power, and a "final" movie wrapping up a popular book/movie trilogy in Fifty Shades Freed.

I saw complaints Annihilation was whitewashing too even though the first book apparently doesn't specify anything about the characters deliberately and that was what the director was working off of.

That was the same deal with Ghost in the Shell and Scarlett Johansson's casting. Yeah, it's an anime but nowhere in the original does it state that the protagonist is Japanese.

"Annihilation" is the kind of movie that tends to attract critics and a certain crowd (people like me) but for casual movie goers, it's something of a turn off so no surprise if it bombs. There were rumors that test screenings for it were bad and the common concern is that it was "too intellectual" for the average audience member.

I will say I gotta give it to Paramount and A24 for being studios that give art house genre movies (stuff like "mother!", "Green Room", "The VVitch" and this) wide releases

To whatever extent the above may be true, it can be argued that it's no less problematic that there are entirely too many directors/producers/etc in Hollywood for which, in the absence of explicit and unambiguous racial indicators, their 'default' is still white.

Well I'd say the fact she's named Motoko Kusanagi and set in a Japanese city in the source material does indicate it though.

Game Night was on way more screens than Annihilation too.  I didn't even realize it was out because it wasn't at the theatre closest to me.  I also feel I saw way more ads for Game Night than Annihilation leading in.

It's too bad Annihilation isnt going to stick around very long it seems. I thought it was a subversively fascinating film that really hit a nerve with me to dig further into the aspects of the film, meaning I plan on seeing this again, maybe even own it. Compared to Mother (which I pretty much hated and thought it was being too vague on the concepts, etc)  I found this to be much easier to sit through and understand.

True.  I think the only one I remember feeling positive about was Hostage but not sure if that holds up now because there are other movies from that period I liked that I go back to and see as complete shit now.  Don't remember much about it.

Hostage I also remember being one of the better efforts from him during that mid-late 2000s period from him along with Sin City, 16 Blocks, and Lucky Number Slevin. His misses were rough though.

Totally overlooked Sin City and Slevin.  I really liked Slevin back then.  16 Blocks was one of those movies I was really interested in and then just never saw for some reason.

I thought Bruce showed he can still act when he cares in Moonrise Kingdom and Looper, but he barely tries anymore. Sin City is fun. I didn't like any of the other movies mentioned, but that might be me being a snob. Then there's all the straight to streaming/on demand movies he does and junk like Surrogates/Cop Out/The Whole Nine and Ten Yards/Alpha Dog/A Good Day To Die Hard/Lay The Favorite and I could go on and on. I'd rather watch Steven Seagal be lazy in a movie than Bruce Willis at this point. It's so much funnier.

Agreed on someone like Segal being funnier. And now wondering if this needs to be split off into a Bruce Willis in the 2000s thread.

Whole Nine Yards is one I still loop into being alright, as that was one of the first R-rated comedies I remember seeing and really appreciating Amanda Peet's tits as a teenager.  Sequel was one of the first entirely unnecessary sequels I remember coming out.  I probably should just go and look and the filmography because I am remembering so much more of those referenced - but again seeing about half of them.  A Good Day to Die Hard was painful to watch and leading into some of his weird/straight to video stuff, I have been unsure why he is starting to straddle that desperate Nic Cage territory, which is where Death Wish feels like to me.  Though Moonrise and Looper as mentioned by Brock were two I wanted to see but again, never got around to.

"16 Blocks" is a decent movie that mostly gets by on the performances.

I didn't like any of the other movies mentioned, but that might be me being a snob. Then there's all the straight to streaming/on demand movies he does and junk like Surrogates/Cop Out/The Whole Nine and Ten Yards/Alpha Dog/A Good Day To Die Hard/Lay The Favorite and I could go on and on. I'd rather watch Steven Seagal be lazy in a movie than Bruce Willis at this point. It's so much funnier.

You know, I watched that movie "Mom and Dad" a month ago on VOD, and it was really fun and had a great performance from Nicolas Cage that has both crazy Cage and the more subdued one. I find it interesting that even when his career is in a down point and he does a lot of shitty VOD movies, the man still does stuff like that, "Mud" and a movie he did from the guy who directed "Beyond the Black Rainbow" that sounds enjoyable. Even something like "Drive Angry" might not be "good" but it's still a lot of fun. The man still puts forth good performances and can be in good to enjoyable movies, while Bruce just phones it in all the time. I wish he'd just retire at this point.

Death Wish didn't do as bad as I was expecting, but still not great. It looked so stupid.

I actually expected it to do better, and to beat "Red Sparrow." Speaking of which, I really wanna see that movie even though word of mouth and reviews have been mixed. Also, it's the second Jennifer Lawrence movie in a row that has seen people walk out because it made them uncomfortable.

Jennifer Lawrence seems like one of those ones that is going to crazy her way out of having a career.

Don't know much on Red Sparrow, only saw the trailer once or twice but I saw something where people think this coming out may impede Marvel from making a Black Widow movie.

I also expected it to do better, but only because of "flyover country." Everything about the trailers for that movie make it look like an NRA-dues-paying, MAGA-hat-wearing, Toupee-Fiasco-voting masturbatory aid. I didn't want any parts of watching that movie, but I figured that a bunch of hWhite people would.

Nic Cage has quietly put up a run of decent to good movies the last few years with Joe, Mom And Dad, and that corrupt cop movie he did with Willem Dafoe. Mandie sounds good too. It's just he's in so many movies, they get lost in the shuffle.
