Oh sweet, naive child.

The movie is just a vehicle to move licensed product from shelf to home.

My business alone rakes it in from Star Wars merch, and the Disney Reps only care about the volume of product moved.

Star Wars could have made half what it's already amassed and it'd still be one of the more successful movies of all time in that it's achieving its objective: generating huge profits through brand synergy.

China has some unusual taste. They don't seem to like Star Wars as much as the rest of the world, and are more or less single-handedly responsible for Furious 7's place among the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time (Source: http://www.ew.com/article/2015/04/28/furious-7-china-highest-grossing-film-all-time )

What's retarded is comparing lifetime gross numbers to a movie that's been out for less than 3 weeks. How about instead making a comparison of opening weekend numbers. But you won't because you a Cameron fag.

Star Wars won't break Avatar record because it's doing piss poor in Asia.

Also Avatar hit at the height of the 3D fad. Avatar only made so much money because tickets were double what they usually are.

This is a straight up lie being pushed in multiple threads by the same Avatard shit poster.

TFA will open in more Chinese theaters than any other movie in the history of the nation. It will also have more planned show times than any other movie in Chinese history.

Cry harder you butt hurt faggot.

Avatar went up its second week in nearly every Asian market. How'd The Marketing Awakens do?
>>
>>64501161
"Presale" is very uncommon in Asian countries you faggot. Most Asian economies are so piss poor that the concept of "presales" is a foreign concept to them. They sure as hell aren't about to let someone have their money on the concept of a promise for a product in the future. Literaly the only Asian country that TFA is not smashing Avatar in is South Korea

Yes, but they aren't just low, they're dismal.

Japan and Korea are at least familiar with Star Wars, Chincs have no nostalgia for it one bit

No one cares about foreign markets. They just liked Avatar cause most of the movie is non-verbal pretty lights.

Considering China from 1977-1983 was an isolated backwater which did not show capitalist pig movies in theaters, that's a tricky assertion to make. The only good data would be from ethnic Chinese at Hong Kong or Taiwan theaters, but no way in the mainland.

That's actually pretty funny. Bringing 21st century expectations to a viewing of 20th century films is a stupid move on the part of those audiences. They would probably criticize the century old "Trip to the Moon" for it's use of a ballistic launch vehicle to get to the moon.

Avatar is a once in a life time phenomenon that transcended cinema as we know it.

>>
>>64501850

notice how avatar/titanic went on to make 400 mil after day 16 whereas jurrasic park made 120 mil after day 16

star wars can maybe make another 200 mil domestically

even with 300 mil from china it would still need another 200 mil overseas to beat titanic or 800 mil to beat avatar and that aint happening
>>
Measuring box office records is fucking retarded anyways.

There's like twice as many people alive today than there were when Gone With The Wind was out, and there are more fucking movie theaters period. Records aren't fucking impressive anymore.

3.Weeks get record breaking results, so they start saying foreign aren't making money.

So in a fraction of the time that Avatar was in theaters, TFA has made more money than Avatar had at the equivalent amount of time, and you're acting like that means something?

Why bother even shitposting? Do you just keep moving the goalpost every time or how exactly are you justifying this? And also, why the fuck are you so gay for Fern Gullies With Pohahantas? Do you actually like that movie or are you the type of person that likes going to the beach and punching waves?

You're right: Korea isn't China.

Unlike China, Korea is a country where the Star Wars actually had theatrical releases when the films originally released. Korea is a country where Star Wars plays on television, unlike China. Korea is also a country where bootleggers weren't given weeks to distribute the film illegally before it played in the theaters, unlike China.

The Force Awakens hasn't done well in any Asian country. Yo-Kai Watch outperformed it in Japan (a country, like Korea, has a history with the series and showed the film on time).

Honestly, I don't see it doing much better in China.

They still limit how many foreign movies can be released in China, but the number increased a few years ago (it's up from 20 to 34 now) and it'll supposedly increase again in 2017.

They probably didn't/couldn't waste a slot on a film that would release so close to the New Year. Also, I don't think they have high expectations of it doing well in China (then again, they've dropped a lot of money on advertisement).
>>
>>64503639
is this nigga serious? yo-kai is currently peaking in popularity in japan. it would be weird if it didn't beat out TFA.

if yo-kai and frozen both launched together in japan, yo-kai would still win. and frozen was huge in nipland(and probably still is)

>>64504135
>if yo-kai and frozen both launched together in japan, yo-kai would still win
Honestly doubt this given that Frozen has outperformed Yo-Kai Watch in Japan.
