Some have said that Dial of Destiny could be the next Maverick, as a sequel to an '80s franchise, but the reviews have been mixed, and the stench of Crystal Skull still hangs over it. It might turn out to be critic-proof, we'll see.

I’d like Harrison ford to have a good send off, before Disney reinvents Indiana Jones , for the sounds of it and how many rewrites and reshoots
I’m not too optimistic it’ll be any good.



I just realized fast x is a fast and furious sequel , man that’s a low opening in the us .

It's had some criticism for crap CGI de-aging of Harrison, and for featuring time-travel in the plot, because the previous films were so realistic Image

The Fast & Furious films have always done better internationally than domestically, particularly in Asia.

Weirdly the Spider-Man movie is bigger in the USA than the rest of the world , I was wondering if it had territories still to release , but the original was about the same kind of performance.

Most of the people I know who have seen it say that it's better than Crystal Skull, though not as good as Raiders or Last Crusade. But I think the memory of Crystal Skull probably killed this one at the box office.

I think it’s a new trend in movie goers where the last film in the series they didn’t like hurts the franchise and sequels more than used to happen. Old Hollywood model was turn out finished product even if it’s trash collect every dollar possible, if poorly received retool and collect profits next time around. It seems audiences are less forgiving of a bad movie experience and hold the series’s accountable for the next installment.


Which I’m concerned Babs may have done the same thing to bond and we don’t find out until the new bond , if there ever is such a person before the rights revert to public domain, decades down the road.

Another similarity to bond and Indy is Phoebe what’s her face involvement and the attempt of female producers to replace their aging male character with a younger female lead, not giving them their own series, rather trying usurp the current series to suit their ideology over tell a good story.

I’m sure Babs had a plan in the back of her mind for 007 series staring her new 007, seems the have been their since they tried and failed to launch a jinx series 20 years ago. However I wish they had gotten jinx off the ground back the , 1 because the easiest way to do this would be keep brosnan on for one more, delaying or avoiding the lost years of the Craig series and 2 get this out of their system and on the screen in a productive way that might have worked creatively. Instead of the half measures she took in the Craig era.

On an alternate time line we could be recasting for the bond bond and jinx series in time for bond 32 next year.

I think there is rarely a single cause for a film failing at the box office. Different people stay away for different reasons. Ballooning budgets certainly don't help. It seems that practically every major movie now has a price tag that means it needs to make a billion dollars just to break even. I also find the trend of overextended running times a turn-off. Why does everything have to be three hours long?

We they copy what they think is the formula for success, avengers endgame long running time made money so people like long runtime

I think Oppenheimer was probably the bigger beneficiary of the whole Barbenheimer thing, though. A Barbie movie was obviously going to make more money than a three-hour, R-rated biopic of a nuclear physicist, but $80 million is pretty d**n impressive. My sister went to see Barbie with her 13-year-old daughter, and they both enjoyed it, but said that she wasn't sure that my niece would have liked it when she was younger. It's more for teenagers than children.

I just got back from seeing Indy 5. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it provided a much-needed course correction after the last one. I thought PWB was all right in it; didn't love her, didn't hate her.

I'll wait until the actuals come in tomorrow evening, but weekend estimates have both Barbie and Oppenheimer dropping less than 50% in their second weekends.

Honestly I’m impressed Oppenheimer is at $400 million world wide, kind of standard Christopher Nolan performance
Guess Mendes will make a fat an and little boy movie next, since he seems to ape Nolan
