Forums - Movies Discussion - The Force Awakens Box Office Thread: $1,73B

2015 - Star Wars: The Force Awakens
2016 - Rogue One
2017 - Star Wars Episode 8
2018 - Untitled Han Solo Movie
2019 - Star Wars Episode 9
2020 - Untitled Boba Fett Movie


I guarantee, if the Force Awakens makes over $2 billion and Rogue One makes over $1 billion, then coming 2020 or 2021 we will get 2 Star Wars movies per year.

There are a few cut sections of the movie to make the length shorter. I believe Phasma had more scenes that were cut out. And theres a maskless picture of Kylo Ren in the snow with some snow troopers which I assume was cut as well



If true I'd but that version as loved that character...and she did nothing and was in maybe five minutes.

Yeah there were a few cut scenes that would've fleshed her out more. I hope we get an extended version eventually

Interesting point: the EU/dollar exchange rate is more favorable than it has been in years, so selling as many tickets as JW or Avatar (especially the latter) will result in greater dollar profits.

Some food for thought.

 

Actually it is the other way around, during Avatar's run it was more favorable (as in the dollar being a lot weaker than the EU), now it is almost tied which will result in less dollar profits.

If memory serves me right, during Avatar's run, 1EU=~1.40$ so that meant 1 billion euros would translate into 1.4 billion dollars, while right now 1EU=~1.10$ which would mean 1 billion euros would equal around 1.1 billion dollars, a loss of $300 million.

Yeah...shit.

That doesn't translate:

A movie ticket was $0.23 in 1939, and minimum wage was $0.28.

A movie ticket is $8.34 today, and minimum wage is $7.25.

That means that a ticket was less than minimum wage, and a ticket is now more.



 

29 states and dc have a higher minimum wage than the federal minimum. that wasn't the case then. 

Ticket prices vary by state. States with a higher minimum wage usually have higher ticket prices.

Not only by state but by city also.  Theaters in smaller cities usually have lower ticket prices then theaters in big cities.

Todays numbers should be around $58-59M.
