He said they are popular, not great films.

And for movies to reach the billion dollar platform there needs to repeat business. So people are seeing it more than once. So yeah they are popular. Not talking about Oscar contenders.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Good Boys is taking the top slot this weekend with an estimated $20m. Angry Birds 2 is opening poorly despite fairly solid reviews, with $8.7m estimated for the weekend.

Where'd you Go Bernadette looks like it'll land around $4m for the weekend, 47 Meters Down 2 is landing around $7m. Blinded By the Light is the best critical reception of the weekend, looks to hit $4.3m

Has there ever been a worse year for sequels? Two more to add to the long list.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Well most of the sequels are usually cash grab crap that makes just enough to justify their low budgets, so they’re considered “successes”. I hope we hit a period in the future where we see original content return.

But who are we kidding.

In terms of quality? 2007 maybe?

Yes, especially with expectations not being met. 2007 had a lot of movies that were disappointing because the prior films were much better (mostly). It’s not like Dark Phoenix was highly anticipated. Why release Angry Birds 2 when kids just went back to school? It wasn’t going to do great regardless, but that’s brutal.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

AMC’s weekly kids camp movies were presented by Angry Birds 2, so I saw the trailer a lot this summer. Based on the reaction of 4-8 year olds, I figured it would do a lot better.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Releasing it during the back-to-school period seemed like a mistake to me. People were still furiously trying to get supplies and haircuts last weekend.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Nobody is back to school in my area. My kids don't go back until after Labor day.

Still I always expected this to bomb. The Angry Birds fad was on it's last legs when the first movie came out. It's basically dead now.

Everyone is back to school over in my area. My wife and I figured that’s why it was going to bomb. Too close to school.
