Hahahahaha! Still hasn't passed Avatar yet and its BO takings are dropping like a stone!
Entertainment Weekly predicted 3 Billion dollars for The Force Awakens.
It's going to beat Jurassic World, but it all hinges on China right now.
>taking 17 days for what it took Avatar two and a half months to achieve
wow what a flop
Not really a fair comparison. Back in that day movies used to play for years, there was less competition with other media, and home video didn't exist. We're not going to get a Gone with the Wind for a very long time, even taking population growth into consideration.
It'll be at least 2 billion, probably 2.1 or 2.2 billion by the end of its run. It won't beat Avatar. If Episode VIII is amazing and everyone goes out to see Episode IX, that could maybe beat it.
>tickets now cost almost twice as much as they did back in 08'
That's retarded. No they didn't. I literally have stubs still around for Inglorious Basterds and it's like $9, compared to today's $11.
It's the only criticism that contrarians can still cling to, considering everyone adores TFA. Bitter shut-ins need an insignificant and meaningless figure like box office success to justify their irrational hatred for this movie.
This is the tipping point of the most crucial trend--Avatar's revenue stayed steady for weeks beyond the three-week mark, and this is the first day Star Pleb didn't beat Avatar for single-day gross. Meaning it's hitting the profit wall, and will drop off just like they all do, Jurassic World, FF7, etc.
Someone lurking may have the graph that shows this clearly.
Stay deluded. There's plenty not to like about the movie.
Not everyone is a mindless child who enjoys the cinematic equivalent of Katy Perry.
Lets be honest here.
It probably wont break Avatar number either domestically or internationally, but it's a better movie than Avatar.
I don't own any Disney stock so I don't really care about the numbers TFA puts up, Disney will make money hand over fist anyway...but Avatar will likely stay on top.
If Cameron didn't take a vacation to ride around in fucking submarines, Avatar could have been a gigantic franchise. No one wants to see the sequel.
Go to Monday week 3 here:
Avatar's total is $8,094,554 and TFA is $8,021,882 for Monday. The legend says "daily gross," so seems like it refers to total worldwide for that day. It may gave beaten it Monday for domestic gross though.
Yeah OP, you're such a winner.
how much profit has Avatar given you?
That's one problem and its effects throughout the film. Again, there's no mention of the actual qualities that make a film good: the acting, the mise-en-scene, the characters. All that stuff.
