Pulled in another $30m for #1 this weekend and broke a billion world wide :notworthy:

I'm thinking it hits at least $600m domestic since it's at $521m now. With 4th of July weekend coming up $700m might not be out of the question. Is there a better movie for the 4th right now than it? Paramount should do a final marketing push in the US for it.

It definitely hits 600 domestic and there’s not that many more big movies this summer so who knows… maybe it just crosses 700. That would really be something.

Some of that depends tho if Paramount Sticks with its 45 day window of movies from theaters to paramount plus. If it does, it starts streaming in 3 weeks and that’ll take a chunk out of its box office.

This movie and Jurassic prove we don't need the Chinese box office. We get a fraction of that box office anyway. I have been so tired of acquiescing to them and making changes in fear of losing it. With countries like South Korea and Mexico gaining more international box office share I am happy for the movies like this dominating box office. I mean, almost all of the Marvel movies are banned overseas and yet those have been a juggernaut worldwide. It went from hoping the Chinese market could give underperforming movies a boost to outright depending on them.

I remember the worm started turning. I was working on the marketing project for the Hulk back in 2008. We put a ton of effort into wooing the Asian market to see if we widen the appeal, boost the movies revenue and create cross sell opportunities for movie themed cobranded products (example financial products) in those markets. It was self-perpetuating scenario because with that investment you depend on that revenue.

I am glad to see success at the Box office again without reediting or changing the writers and directors' original intent for scenes. Sorry, not trying to get political but enjoying the success. These movies shouldn't be impacted why whims of governments in any country. They are for the fans. These movies feel like they were for the fans and screw everything else.

Does this open the door for everyone and their mother to go to the well and pull out older properties and run sequels? (I know there are plenty already, but this is a huge call to arms for studios)

Could we finally see a Goonies sequel?

Is this actually a "GO"? I have not found a studio announcement and this has been rumored for years. IMDB sometimes adds entries even for rumors.

No, sadly.
I really wish IMDB wouldn't do this. They bill themselves as the legit source for all things and even have a subscription tier. However, they often will put up rumored stuff which makes it seem official.

You shut your mouth :)

Actually, that's the one huge downside to the success of this movie, IMO. Outweighed, of course, by what it's done for the American box office, but still.

We saw this tonight on our 32nd anniversary. Amazing movie. Pushed a whole bunch of nostalgia and emotional buttons for me.

And TC has earned role model status for my generation on still looking good after all these years.

Congratulations!

I getcha. I liked the original but never went back for a re-watch. I don't think the nostalgia would then do much for me. I'm glad a lot of people are liking it, though. The theaters could use the boost. Between this and Doctor Strange, it's looking up for the industry.
Why are you not seeing it? :shrug:
