>"I-it's the highest grossing Saturday-Sunday opening of all time in China! TFA is breaking records everywhere!"
>No other movie has ever opened on Saturday in China
DISNEY SHILLS IN FULL DAMAGE CONTROL MODE
It's spin/clever wording to make it seem like TFA is breaking records in China (it isn't). No other movie has ever had a Saturday-Sunday opening in China, so to say TFA is the highest is the same as "TFA was the only competitor".
>only 53 million in two days
>already dropping like a rock and has bad word of mouth in chinkland
it isn't about making money though, they wanted the boxing heavy weight title. saying you've made a lot of money is like saying Barkley made a lot of money. sure he did make a tonne of money in the nba, where's his rings at though. even some one who made far less and has a ring has bigger balls than sir No ring Charles Barkley.
Holy shit it couldn't even beat Mission Impossible's opening
>my fucking face
>Yes..i hear you all...i hear you down there,talking shit. i listen and chuckle, to your anger and bitterness echoing from below. such intense rage yet so minute and insignificant...so distant. the hum of grandiose declarations, supported only by delusions of mere mortals. one after another they have crawled before the golden gates of the 2 billion mark. barely standing up,bloody and tearful, trying to grasp it with thier gaze, realizing they will never pass through. they gave thier absolute best, but never reached thier destination. cursing my name as they are being cemented for eternity to thier pitiful position. but i forgave the blasphemy, disregarded thier envy, while i sit on the throne, ever so confident in my divine right as the Emperor Director. yet i still wish for a worthy contender, for a noble spirit to clash swords with. it is indeed, lonely at the top...
WE FUCKING TOLD YOU THAT ASIANS ARE RACIST AND SEXIST!!
JURASIC WORLD MADE 99 MILLION ITS FIRST WEEKEND AND ONLY ENDED WITH 228 MILLION
GOODBYE WORLDWIDE BOX OFFICE RECORD AHAHAHAHA
TFA IS DONE.....the house of rat is finished. hahaha. the next movie won't even make a half bill domestically, and that much less internationally. rogue one's done, episode 8 is done.
Even though Avatar told a bland story at best, it was a technical marvel that is still well loved by many and still watched by a shit tonne of people. it's joined my things to watch every year with your family. Dune DVD will be watched by me and the senpai later and Avatar IN BEAUTIFUL BLUE RAY BABY, will be the next flick we're gonna watch.
even the kind of atrocious and poorly written and acted episode 3 is on our watch list. poor as that was i had more fun with episode 3 than tfa. what a crock of garbage that movie was. want my money back disney.
Jim never said it either, but its hard for him to hear the cry of 'uncle' with his balls in Disney's mouth and all.
More than Avatar, so they could bill it the highest grossing movie of all time. It's likely going to end up around 2.1 billion worldwide, around Titanic. Avatar made 2.7 billion.
Add to that the fact that they have grossed nearly 3 billion in Toy sales just since "force friday" in September.
They grossed over 2 billion a year in toy and videogame sales per year over the previous 2 years (2014 and 2013)
Yeah, Disney has MORE than made back their investment in Lucasfilm already.
No source, just speculation based on how much money they poured into marketing in Asia (they got the Chinese Justin Bieber to personally market it for like a month) and how hard they are trying to make the 800m+ domestic gross sound like a worldwide record.
Well it's beaten it domestically and nearly matched it internationally so I'm sure they're happy.
Also I heard that they've already made their 4 billion investment back taking in to account all of the money they've made from the franchise in total. Anyone else know if this is true?
>Even though Avatar told a bland story at best, it was a technical marvel that is still well loved by many and still watched by a shit tonne of people
you disney shills are hilarious. when you were up there.....
>it was made for the kids i tell ya
cry baby sour lime, wash your face with dirty brine....AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH
I KNOW IT PROBABLY HURTS WITH BASED JIM'S COCK ALL IN YOUR ASS, BUT TRY TO EASE BACK ON IT, IT WON'T HURT FOR LONG, I PROMISE
disney shill BTFO!

Most likely, see >>64705467
Avatar takes you to another world and that story it tells beautifully. But you know what Avatar has that TFA doesn't have, a believable story and sensible plot. TFA plot had holes and it was shit, and nothing about it was believable, I MEAN YOU MARY SUE REY!
the token black guy's presence literally was the best thing about the movie. why he suddenly turned on the only family he had and started murdering t hem without batting an eye felt forced and contrived though.
You realize there are people on the Earth who think SW and JC are both shit, right? Are you the same anon who posts this shit in several threads? I refuse to believe there's more than one person being weirdly prideful and war-like about defending a hack Hollywood children's director who makes soulless, dim CGI garbage.
if you rub your ass with a nice ASSHOLE BTFO salve, I'm sure it'll help with the bleeding and pain. Now take two aspirin and call BASED JIM IN THE MORNIN' TO MAKE THAT BTFO ASS OF YOURS SORE ALL OVER AGAIN!
How am I BTFO if I literally don't care which shitty blockbuster made more money? They're shitty films for children and uncultured adults, their revenue doesn't make them good movies, money has no factor on what makes something good or essential. Does it give you some sort of wish fulfillment ego-boner to live through the success of your idol? You can work toward your own accomplishments, you know, you don't have to ride Cameron's dick like a greedy slut to feel like a champ.
i got my dvds, and my games and my books, and the internet, and my action figures, and my friends and my buds, and enough money in my pocket to afford a blow job when i'm in the mood. so you're right, no woman here. i live with my family in a big old house and we're all here working and making coin and stuff. we're a family and i get to choose what we watch now and again.
it's the perfect life.
Sure I'll probably look back and feel ashamed, for all the shit you guys got backed up from JIM'S BIG COCK ALL UP IN YOUR ASSES!
WELL LET ME INFORM YOU that i am not alone, and there's others on this here board that's as awesome as I am. gets my dick hard knowing how BLOWN THE FUCK OUT YOU DISNEY SHILLS ARE. fucking first day this shit hit, 'IT'S THE END FOR AVATAR!'
and now it's "you're to celebratory, you must be one guy, no one's this much of a fan!"
i gonna go watch a bit of dune on my computer to calm me down a bit. putting the dvd in now. gotta cook dinner soon so i gotta calm down. jerked off too much last night and my dick's still sore from that so i can't jerk off right now. gotta be tonight after Dune ends.
you got btfo out disney shill.
Well, Disney definitely cost themselves money going with black and female leads. Possibly hundreds of millions of dollars.
Disney tied to cover this up by taking Dinn out of the trailer and poster in Asia. But that was a band aid. Asians are against race-mixing. And they admire whites for their acheivements, and don't respect blacks much at all.
TFA did fine. But certainly left money on the table.
How much you care about this is depressing. It's clear that the Hollywood system has worked to trap you in its web. They want you to go on Reddit, like you clearly do, to form your warlike factions, and feel the blind passion and warmongering you do over products, and get your insular opinions from other redditors. This is how they make money. You're doing a disservice to the world by letting your personality be dictated by businessmen and hack directors. There's life beyond Reddit, you know. You can experience beauty outside of your Blurays and your autistic CGI worlds.
>celebrating Avatar because of it's foreign gross
>ignoring that foreign markets have even worse taste in movies than American Markets.
For Fuck's sake. The only American made movies to make a larger percentage of their money from foreign markets than Avatar (72.7%) are:
Bridget Jones 2
Resident Evil 5
Ice Age 4
The Golden Compass
The Expendables 3
Resident Evil 4
The Smurfs 2
The Need for Speed
Die Hard 5
Ice Age 3
Penguins of Madagascar
The Last Samurai
Hanzel and Gretel: Witchhunters
Hobbit Battle of Five Armies
Bridget Jones Diary 1
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
The Prince of Persia
That list far worse than the list of movies on the other end of the spectrum.
TL;DR Foreigners are bigger plebs than 'murricans
No one cares about your blog you tremendous faggot. I just came here to laugh at you and your tantrums.
Holy fuck, it hasn't even been out for a month yet, settle down.

Holy shit. Someone please screencap this guy or make him copypasta or something.
Another victim of nerd culture. Please use the money you spend on prostitutes to seek therapy.
>TFA made $53 million opening
>Mission impossible made $86 million opening
now it's, "you don't have a stake in either so even if Jim's second time out with AVATAR 2 makes a gazillion dollars, not a penny of it will be yours."
asshole's that sore uh? it's always tough the first time your ass gets torn up. well or so i've read, don't have any experience in that department but i hear it'll heal up nicely. put some ice in there bruh.
i am quite accomplished. i go to work, i come home, i play with my buds online, i watch porn, i fap, i wake up, eat a hearty breakfast with the family, and i do the same thing. now and again i go to church with Mother and I do what I can for those in the faith. I volunteer when able, I give to the poor, I help feed people in need. if they have a cute daughter i score her phone number and i talk to her and then when i'm bored i stop talking to her.
you know it!
No it doesn't. if this was the 1820's I'd be talking about how the oppression of the Republic has kept the simple folk down and that the President will save us all from their stiff upper lippity.
we're talking about 2.7 billion dollars that Based Jim made, which in today's dollars would have been 3.4 billion, do try to keep up.
you're the one talking about fags man. what, you're in love with my bear bod? you want to lick the hair on my lower back and massage my hairy asshole with your cub tongue?
i get to have sex. you pay on the front end or the back end. have friends who are still paying and a few who paid it all. it's easier to spend a few bucks, get off and you go your way and she goes hers. less pain for you. it's immoral though and i get so depressed after.
i love living here sir. don't hear me complaining now do you?
Idk, that may have been a factor, and I'm not a "pro-diversity" person at all. But if all the leads were white, TFA still would have been just as safe, bland and forgettable. It's really just a generic, "competent" cash in on a really loved iconic series from 40 years ago. That's why it ultimately won't do any historic financial numbers.
keep it up shill, soon we'll all forget your boast but three weeks ago. remember that i hope,
>Avatar fags on suicide watch!
>Jimfags praying for a miracle!
damn if only i had the screen caps of the whole thing.
this movie spells doom for the series. once the glare of the initial explosion wears off, and people finally get their eye sight back, the next one coming people will wear shades. the next movie won't even make 400 million domestically and if it does, it wont' be much more than t hat.
You spend a lot of time defending your life, and it comes across like you're trying to defend it to yourself. If you feel remorse over your actions, it's clear that it's not perfect. I started off annoyed by you, but now I'm feeling really empathetic. I think you should really try to evaluate what you put value into. I don't think it's doing you any good. Why does it matter so much to you how much money James Cameron makes? Can you show me what impact his films have had on your life, and show how it's led to anything good? It seems like something arbitrary, but our entertainment choices illustrate a lot about us, and I can't help but think your idolatry of Cameron points to a really huge central flaw in your character. It simply shouldn't matter so much to a person how much money Hollywood films make. No one in Hollywood cares about your well-being. They don't make blockbusters to try and develop your empathy, or show you the healthy ways to live or function. The fact that you compare actual, important politics of the past to the present state of Hollywood is troubling.
i'm not wrong for seeing the truth. the biggest lie you can tell a child is that they could accomplish wonders. sure they could accomplish wonders. if they're of the less than 1%. the reality is most if not almost all of us are destined to be the very dirt better men build on to reach the future.
Martin Luther King said something that I learned in School and it has stuck with me all these years later, 'if you're a street sweeper, be the best street sweeper there is.'
Martin never said being a street sweeper is going to make you happy or if you'll feel satisfied. but if the day comes you find yourself being a street sweeper then be the best street sweeper you can be. i'm stuck where i am and things can be better but chances are, this is where it's at. i'm working towards my inevitable retirement and we're pooling our resources for our eventual deaths.
YOU think I love Avatar? I enjoyed AVATAR. I loved the matrix series though because each film was rich and purposeful. people were only disappointed because it didn't go the way they wanted. But Neo, instead of being the President or the god of their realm, settled for being a street sweeper and i kind of understood that. most people only hated the subsequent movies because the worshipped and clung to every meme Morpheus spoke, and ignored the more purposeful things he said, among which was, Most people would never leave the Matrix and would die to defend it. Right there, that's a group of people, the majority of humanity, more than 6.5 billion who would die to defend the lie of the matrix. those were a people who preferred to be, street sweepers than zionist taoist.
Of all the characters of the series I love however, Rama Kandra is my most favorite, for his words reverberates in me even now, "I don't hate my Karma, I am thankful for it. Karma is but a word, but its the feeling behind it that is important, it means simply; we're all here to do what we're all here to do."
as am i..
You really can't make this shit up, can you?
The Chinese would love these Star Wars planets
>Alderaan in the prequel era
They don't care about Tunisia though.
You're just finding excuses to remain complacent. You're very clearly over-writing in an attempt to justify to yourself your lack of motivation. I think I recognize you from a Matrix thread the other day, about the sequels being bad. I'm pretty sure you were defending them in that thread, right? The Matrix sequels have nothing to say about life or death. They're minutes and minutes and minutes of action, and then a few lines that try to seem deep but really have nothing to say. Nothing in any of the Hollywood movies you idolize have anything remotely vital to say about the human condition as the books that inspired them do... I think the Wachowski's had good intentions, but even they described the Matrix movies as Kung Fu vs. Robots when pressed. The thing is that they just took inspiration from the books they read and dressed up a blockbuster with it. I think it would really benefit you to explore literature and art films, to see actual artistic work that doesn't waste its time on entertainment - you can't communicate something real and life-changing without actually using the entirety of your film or book to get meaning across. The fact you pull an example from a Matrix movie to defend how low you set your bars for yourself just tells me that you go through life desperately trying to find things to affirm yourself and keep yourself in your stagnant place. I think you're better than that - if you're aware enough to know that the world requires many parts, you're already better than a street sweeper. If you let yourself be a street sweeper, this little tinge of regret will always spring up. It's not too late, anon. You can still become a better version of yourself and find not what you want, greedily, but what you have to do, in your heart of hearts.
are there still pitch men and women out there. i suck at writing but i write great summaries. are there still places where you can pitch your stuff. i would need some one to help me write. i have stuff. what about competent dictation to text software. i can spend all day talking but when it comes to writing, it uses another part of my mind that is intertwined with boredom and monotony. i can write fan fiction will enough but when it comes to my stuff, i stubble, i get bored, uninterested and that's usually. when i get really into writing i can spend all day rewriting.
what i need is a software where i can talk for about eight hours and then work on bringing the text in line with my imagination.
There isn't just one way to write, anon. When you look at successful people, the thing that keeps jumping out is that they all use different methods. Not every director writes their stuff out in immaculate screenplays, there are a bunch that use fragmentary notes and direct off the cuff. Some writers use a series of flash-cards to outline their work, some write as they go, some edit as they go ... it's all a matter of trying out different things and seeing how well it goes for you, and just doing whatever leads to results. There aren't any rules if you don't want there to be. Often the people who make it just do what they want until they're good at it. I'm not sure what the state is for pitch men, but there are countless examples of people making it outside of the usual channels. Follow your intuition and at least there will never be doubt.
>Asian's will save star wars!
>constantly tell /tv/ that Asian's are sexist and racist
>point out how poorly it's doing in other Asian markets
>retards of /tv/ keep thinking that a franchise that only just premiered in china in 2015 will do well
once again reddit /tv/ is wrong and true oldfag /tv/ is right
thank you. didn't know that. thought they all had to write emaculate scripts. thought that's how everyone did it. the flash card thing i can do. it's short and to the point and its not scary like a full page but straight to the point, it describes a moment of time then it ends. like a smaller function. like how programs are essentially just hundreds, thousands or millions of functions brought together.
>story that is told beautifully
The delusion is real.
It's just your generic "evil white men" fighting for control over land that's inhabited by "savage natives" except it's in space with some tree hugging save the earth bullshit mixed in.
And you fell for it.
Is this a goof? This is a goof right? You're goofing us surely.
I mean for one thing, you bitch about MARY SUE REY but take zero issue with MARY SUE CRIPPLED BROTHER OF GUY THAT TRAINED FOR YEARS WHO WE DON'T EVEN REMEMBER HIS NAME BECAUSE THE MOVIE IS A PEICE OF SHIT, THE CHARACTERS DON'T MATTER, AND NOBODY HAS WATCHED IT SINCE 2010.
Pretty sure you fauxldfags are the only one that give a shit about foreign box office, or think that a movie that's made a billion dollars and is critically celebrated is a failure because it failed to beat that generic event movie that was popular because things looked really neat when you wore funny glasses. Transformers does really well in China too, because they only care about things being big and explodey with as little problematic story as possible.
