BOXING PLAYED A BIG ROLE HERE! :p

But external events have always had an impact on the box office. Sports, weather, Halo 3 etc.

IT will be out in two weeks to finally save the box-office.

What's it?

 

Anyways, I blame Disney. Wasn't Star Wars Ep 8 supposed to release this summer? With that this definitely wouldn't have happened!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

IT is on track to have biggest September opening in hiding and critics have posted on Twitter (reviews to come) that it might do even better than projections, as it's a work of genius.

The movie studios should only blame themselves. They, many of their writers, and many of their stars simply could not resist making political statements. Which is really really stupid when you are selling a product that you want as many people to consume as possible.

The political shit can work if it jives with the product you sell (meaning the type of people who enjoy your product would be drawn in by you espoting your political views) an example of this would be a Michael Moore type, the people who watch something he makes would likely be increase by his political activity. Cannot say the same about products intended to go mass market.

?????? You right wingers crack me up.  Take off your tin foil hat please and take your meds.  There haven't been making any political statements in any major movies lately.  The box office is down because we had a bunch of crap movies and uninspired sequels so far this year.

While I am looking forward to IT reboot (My Avatar makes that pretty obvious), horror movies have rarely been massive as you don't get the children, families or those that simply don't like horror.

Exactly plus the movies R rating is not going to help its box office either.

...also more people exist now, so doubly bad. I fell like most modern movies look, sound and feel identical, you saw one, you saw them all.

Hollywood has run out of idea's and are rehashing the same thing over and over, and doing way to many action/super hero movies.

Also TV has gotten better and better, the movies have tougher competition than ever.

Excuse me. Ghostbusters? Women. Wonder Woman? Women. It's not Wonder - MAN is it? 

Ugh, politics have honestly gotten overboard by this point. I mean what's next? 



The movie industry would be so much better and more successful if Nickelodeon just remade Good Burger!
