Reviews and critical reception aside, you can't deny that Aquaman is a big hit for DC. That's impressive. I also like that Bohemian Rhapsody is still holding on but with the Golden Globes being this weekend, I guess people are scrambling to see all the nominees before the event.

Guess I'll post this here.  Wow, "A Star is Born" was shut out of all the major awards at the Golden Globes.  Their only win was best song.  Was this expected?  I don't really pay attention to show biz news like I used to but I kept hearing how they were going to clean up during awards season.

But then the Globes always seem to have weird results

It suffered from coming out too early in the year. It had a lot of backing, but so much has come out since it's release that it started to lose steam.

Good to see Escape Room perform well. It was a packed theater of mostly younger folks when I saw it on Saturday. Great twists and turns in that one, and I hope it does well enough to warrant a sequel as it could easily be built as a franchise. It felt a lot like Saw but without the gore.

I loved the InTouchables and was intrigued when I first read about The Keep years ago but I don't know, something didn't sit right with me in the trailer. I'll check it out eventually but I'm in really no rush.

"Replicas" was actually meant to be released in 2017, but ended up being pushed back. Also, I haven't seen anything for it outside of commercials as nobody involved has done any promotion for it. At least Keanu can look forward to "John Wick 3" and "Toy Story 4" later this year.

No shock that Replicas was held back a few years. It totally gave that vibe of probably largish budget studio flick that nobody wanted after the hot garbage that was filmed and fell into post-production hell because it was so overtly terrible. There was a ton of low-rent companies that took up distribution of it so that was the first sign of bad for me.  No shock is also bombed as a handful of others were at the Friday matinee, and 3 of them left before it was done!

The Upside was one that got delayed almost an entire year as well (not counting for it being shown at a 2017 festival).  I assumed it had to be a flawed film that was sat on for a while as it looks like something that would try to pander for award season.

Looking it up, the Development section of the Wikipedia page shows there was a lot going on

Quote
In July 2011, in addition to acquiring distribution rights in English-speaking countries, Scandinavian countries and China, The Weinstein Company acquired the rights to remake The Intouchables in English.[7] In June 2012, Paul Feig was slated to direct and write the script, with Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx and Idris Elba eyed for the role of Dell, Colin Firth in talks for Phillip, and Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams were considered for a female lead.[8]

By March 2013, Feig dropped out of directing, with Tom Shadyac in talks to replace him, and Chris Tucker was in consideration for Dell.[9] In October 2014, Kevin Hart was cast as Dell, with Firth still attached as Phillip.[10]

In March 2016, it was announced that Bryan Cranston was cast as Phillip, replacing Firth. Simon Curtis was to direct Cranston and Hart from a screenplay written by Feig.[11] By August 2016, Curtis dropped out of directing. Neil Burger was announced as his replacement.[12] A script by Jon Hartmere will be used rather than Feig's work.[13]

Also, supposedly the year delayed was tied to the Weinstein scandal.

I was expecting a little more for Glass. I think with the bad word of mouth and reviews, it probably won't have the legs that Split had either. Still, a hit with the small budget it had though.

Here's some target numbers for Glass, curious what it could hit based on the word of mouth/reviews. I ended up cancelling my ticket because it's been so divisive. All adjusted for 2019 Ticket Prices. I didn't include The Sixth Sense or Signs because both made over $340 Million adjusted and I don't think Glass even sniffs that.

The Village (2004) = $162,377,500
Unbreakable (2000) = $155,097,300
Split (2017) = $138,123,100
The Happening (2008) = $79,330,900
The Visit (2015) = $68,699,900
Lady In the Water (2006) = $57,004,300

I could see it possibly finishing closer to The Happening (say around $80-85 Million) by the end of its run depending on how much the reviews hurt it especially given its rather soft opening when not up against much competition. It's still gonna make a good profit, mostly tied to its low production budget, but it must still be a bit of a blow to Universal.

I think it won't have legs due to how boring it is. I think domestically it'll finish around 85 million.

Interesting to see The Favourite actually get a boost by 5 spots. Also cool to see Dragon Ball Super: Broly almost making $30 Million. It's already 3rd amongst Anime films in domestic gross right behind Pokemon: The First Movie and Pokemon 2000.

Sony has to be making an absolute killing on those cheap $6-$10 Mill horror movies that end up grossing like 10x its budget on the low end. Even shitty fare like Truth or Dare from Universal grossed $95.3 Million worldwide off a $3.5 Million budget.

Lego Movie 2 only opened with 8 million Friday and is expected to only do around 31 million for the weekend. The first one made 69 million opening weekend. Wow, that's way less than I was expecting considering how well reviewed it is and how big the first one was. I wonder what happened.

That's pretty surprising.  Not sure how the marketing went as I forgot it was this soon until I saw an ad the other night.  Though I did see a big display of the toys in WalMart yesterday.

Maybe it is franchise fatigue too.  I really enjoyed the first one and Batman was solid but that Ninjago was awful.  Not sure how that impacted people willing to bring their kids out for a $60 night out.

The Kid Who Would Be King looks like it'll bomb despite getting good reviews. It looked decent but most King Arthur-esque movies tend to struggle in finding the right market, even kids movie versions. Glad to see Escape Room doing well as it's made about $108 Million worldwide thus far. Also The Prodigy has already made back its budget domestically although I don't think it'll have much in the way of legs with the other movies premiering soon.

"Cold Pursuit" was already projected to make $10-15 million, so outside of the controversy surrounding Neeson I don't see the studio sweating it. "Lego Movie 2" actually made a less than the first on did in it's first weekend ($69,050,279) so unless it can pick up steam or hang in there for a while, it might be considered a bomb. It's gonna need it ("Happy Death Day 2 You" and "Aelita" (which I have a feeling will end up bombing) is next week, "How to Train Your Dragon" is the week after and 2 weeks after that is "Captain Marvel")

When I first saw the trailer for "The Prodigy", I thought it would be a Blumhouse production, but it's actually from XYZ Films (whose credits include "The Raid" movies, "The Night Comes for Us", "Mandy" and "Brawl in Cell Block 99" among others). I think this is their first movie outside of "The Raid" movies to get a wide release.
