Forums - Movies Discussion - Tracking The Rise (Or Fall?) of Skywalker

Didn't you anti-SJWs look at Rottentomatoes as a victory of "the people" on how SJW stuff doesn't sell? But now that the critic/audience score is reversed compared to the last movie you don't even acknowledge it?

But the user scores have been right for both movies. The Last Jedi is terrible and Rise of Skywalker is pretty good.

Here's the quote I was looking for:

"Atom Tickets went so far as to state Rise of Skywalker ticket sales is outselling Avengers: Endgame, with Endgame currently being the number one movie at the box office of all time. Atom further says Rise Of Skywalker tickets sales is their best selling movie in 24 hours ever."

They really need to stop trying to manufacture hype with garbage like that.  And Atom tickets is partially owned by Disney, so not really an impartial source.  No theater around me even accepts them.

When including international territories, Rise of Skywalker's opening weekend was about $373m worldwide. Meaning that it didn't quite outgross the entire theatrical run of Solo ($392m worldwide) in its opening weekend, but it wasn't far off - and its rest-of-world gross ($198m) is already above Solo's ($179m).



So, opening weekend is closer to Rogue One than it is to Solo. Now to see if the strong user reviews translate into strong legs. Hopefully the legs are strong, Disney needs to see that it was the after effects of Episode 8 that hurt first weekend for Rise of Skywalker, and not Rise of Skywalker itself. It's time that they finally wake up and realize how much destruction Rian caused, and cancel his planned trilogy.

To land below Rogue One in the box office in the end could potentially - although we'll never have more than rough estimates for this, considering studios don't divulge the number of tickets sold - make ROS match or go under AOTC as the least watched of all the nine Star Wars movies.

Now let the blame shifting between Rian Johnson fans and J. J. Abrahams fans begin.

Adjusted for inflation, AOTC's gross works out to about $925m. I think ROS should finish ahead of that, given the lack of any particularly strong competition in the weeks ahead - unless Jumanji: The Next Level and/or Frozen 2 rebounds over the Christmas period.

This is true, but I remember reading twitter discussions with one of these box office insiders where he convincingly argued to adjust for inflation (which takes into account average ticket price) is actually flattering to certain movies nowadays, since things like weekend premieres, premium screenings, 3D etc. are more common than the average for blockbusters like Star Wars.

So that's what I'm basing myself to assume $1B, which still seems doable, might actually not be enough.



 

 

 

 

 

Honestly, after the train wreck of TLJ it deserves to be the lowest opening.

If someone asked me if they should see it in theaters I'd have to say no. They shat all over Anakin and Lucas' story in it.



Star Wars has been riding the original trilogy's coat tails for like 30+ years and I think the brand is just starting to fizzle.

The prequel trilogy was ass, this trilogy has better quality in certain areas but isn't coherent due to switching directors very individual sensibilities.

So it's basically one terrible trilogy and one very messy one. Even Mandalorian, it's really just riding the novelty of a Baby Yoda.
