Talk about undeserved lol

I don't like Harry potter, but I can't deny it's genius and ingenuity. And aquaman, while not passed the line to sucking, it's on the verge.

And yes, I watched it. It's... Meh lol. Fun at times though I'll admit .
It's the fun December star wars film that we didn't get. People wanted to see a film like this at Christmas and it was the only one.

Also China loves it, which helps.

Bad times at the el royale was great. I'm surprised it didn't do better critically or commercially.

2018 WORLDWIDE PERFORMANCE

  • Disney - $7,325.48m
  • Warner Bros. - $5,560.69m
  • Universal - $4,884.66m
  • Sony - $3,617.72m
  • Fox - $3,472.34m
  • Paramount - $1,735.25m


Disney are the kings of the big 6, with Fox under their wing they'll be about double WB in terms of yearly gross as well. 2019 is going to be massive for Disney, but WB should also have another great year. It'll be interesting to see how Universal's Hobbs and Shaw film does, can it reach the $1B+ heights of the other films in the Fast franchise?

Here's the 2018 list by film. Interesting year with 5 $1B+ grossers. I expect 2019 will beat this with probably 6-7 films cracking a billy. Bohemian Rhapsody and Solo are probably the big standouts, you'd probably have them switched around if you were asked at the start of the year.

What an awful trailer. This alone is making me want to scratch this film off the potential 2019 billy list. If this is a good reflection of the quality of the film then this could be a bomba

They barely showed much, and it was weird. 

This era comment is on point.

Jafar needs to sound more menacing.  Or menacing at all for a start... 



He looks better here.

I think it looks ok! But i never was into alladin so i don't have any attachment to the cartoon or anything.

Okay is quite generous imo. Let's not forget that this is a fairly big budget Disney film. It should be a lot better than this.

Too bad. Saw the Broadway play the other day and it was very good!

Yeah that does look off, but I thought the same thing about so many recent Disney movies that ended up being mega hits.

I don't think the other ones were so poorly recieved though.  
Era hates it.

Like what? Disney hasn't really had any mega hits outside of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and their main animation studio and those films always look great.

I assumed he was talking about Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, etc.

Yes those two are the only two I thought he could be referring to. There isn't an etcetera. Unless he's a blasphemer who would speak ill of Disney animation.

Anyway, BatB was good and had decent trailers. I can't say much about Jungle Book though.

Disney films that look bad usually bomb. And they do have quite a lot of those. AWiT, Nutcracker both bombed last year for example. Poppins and Christopher Robin were also well under expectations.

Unless he were including Alice, Christopher Robin wasn't super successful.

Pretty sure he didn't love recent Pixar.

You'd never describe Pixar films as looking off though. I suppose Alice would count, but I remember thinking the Alice trailers were quite good.
