Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The last two Star Wars films have set the December weekend opening box office number bar high. Both The Force Awakens and Rogue One had record-breaking numbers and exceeded all expectations.

Still, it should come as no surprise that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has high expectations. And when I say high, I mean high. According to the latest projections, the sequel is on track to earn $200 million in its opening weekend. More on the story below.

WB Projected To Lose Up To $100 Million On ‘Justice League’

Justice League

Justice League‘s disappointing turn out at the box office last weekend could give way to a huge financial blow to Warner Bros. Normally, a film that grossed $94 million would be a cause for celebration. But when you factor in the cost of production and promotional material, a low $94 million is not even enough to cover a fraction of the overall film. In fact, Justice League is already lined up to becoming the lowest grossing DCEU film since the universe was launched back in 2013.

These low numbers could have a negative impact on the future of the DCEU has a whole. More on the story below.

Beauty And The Beast

After succeeding with Cinderella and hitting the jackpot with The Jungle Book, Disney’s live action lineup went with one it’s true classics. Back in 1991, Beauty and the Beast became the first animated film nominated for Best Picture, combining unbelievable new animation technology with maybe the greatest assortment of music and songs put to screen. The film won two Oscars, both for its music; Best Score and Best Original Song (Beauty and the Beast). It had 3 (!) song nominations. Disney’s new live action Beauty and the Beast is exactly what fans of the 1991 animated classic could hope for. The film directed by Bill Condon maintains all the magic and charm, while following very closely to the narrative of its Oscar winning forerunner.

‘Batman v Superman’: Disappointing Box Office May Lead WB To Release Fewer Films

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s disappointing second week drop and negative reviews, along with the mixed general audience, is having a ripple effect over at Warner Bros. Studios. The sequel grossed a meager $51 million, a 69% drop from its opening weekend of $166 million. With those kind of numbers, and a slew of other tentpoles that are getting more positive word of mouth, it is highly unlikely that BvS will even reach the $1 billion mark.

The poor performance will now have WB mulling over a decision to release fewer films in a given year. More on the story below.

Everyone knew Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be a monster, and it has not disappointed. In fact, it might just be even bigger than anticipated…if you can believe that. After an explosive arrival saw it shatter a bunch of records, the movie has officially slipped past James Cameron’s Avatar to become the new all-time domestic box office champ.

It took just 20 freakin’ days.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Poster wide version

Everyone knew that when Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally arrived in theaters it was going to be a monster. This past weekend that arrival happened, and a monster it surely is.

The box office numbers are in, and The Force Awakens went ahead and claimed some records to kick things off. Back in June, Jurassic World surprised all by taking off like a rocket on its way to breaking The Avengers‘ $207.4 million domestic opening record with a $208.8 million debut, leading Marvel to send along congratulations. Now, Marvel and Universal can both prepare a congratulatory card, maybe a nice fruit basket, for the new Star Wars, which threw down an unbelievable $248 million domestic opening. This should be easy for Marvel, as they reside in the same house owned by a certain mouse with the new record holder.

Disney In Depth Banner

Following a strong 2015 slate, The Walt Disney Studios continues its eclectic lineup of original productions, branding via Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and Disney, and a few remakes. 2016 should once again demonstrate Disney’s prominence in the film business, though Universal is experiencing a creative and critical resurgence to some degree. What Disney holds in its favor is consistency (in quality, generally) and accessibility (familiarity with properties). Consumers know (almost) precisely what they receive in buying a ticket to a Disney movie – even if Disney now has its hands in Lucasfilm and Marvel films.

Here is a preview of 2016 films from The Walt Disney Studios.

Disney In Depth: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Box Office Potential

Disney In Depth Banner

The impending release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens triggers one major question on the minds of movie aficionados and box office analysts: what determines the film’s success? How do we measure if the movie proves to be a phenomenal victory for the Disney studio, or simply another blockbuster? Comparing this film to other major titles can enlighten us on what differentiates a profitable major release from a financial sensation.

Avatar stands as the highest-grossing film of all time domestically in the United States. Adjusting for inflation, only 13 films stand above it, including the original Star Wars from 1977. Why mention Avatar? As different as these two properties may appear in style and tone, their similarities make the 2009 hit worth mentioning.

Marvel's Ant-Man

Marvel Studios has just announced a huge change in their Phase Three movie schedule, with the addition of one sequel to the roster and release date changes for two promising franchise starters.

The July 2018 release slot that originally belonged to Black Panther – which just snagged Joe Robert Cole to write the script – has been given to Ant-Man and the Wasp, a follow-up to Marvel’s surprisingly successful (over $400 million in worldwide box office) blockbuster Ant-Man.

Jurassic World

When the Jurassic Park franchise was officially revived with the release of Jurassic World last month, it immediately made a huge impact by scoring $208.8 million to start things off, beating The Avengers‘ opening weekend record of $207.4. Something Marvel was cool enough to tip their hat to with a congratulatory message.

Now it appears another congratulations from Marvel is in order. It’s being reported that Jurassic World has now leapfrogged The Avengers once again, this time to take the number three all-time highest grossing movie worldwide spot. The movie has made $1.522 billion, passing the former number three’s $1.520 billion. The only two movies ahead of it now are James Cameron’s Titanic, which made almost $2.2 billion worldwide, and Cameron’s Avatar, which made almost $2.8 billion. Two other movies from this year have also made it into the top ten all-time worldwide: Furious 7 with $1.5 billion, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with $1.4 billion.
