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

I really doubt itd be any closer. Your whole argument falls apart when we consider Disney, a multi multi multi billion dollar a year company, has had the release date scheduled for months before releasing it. This said company, being films is one of the greatest revenues for them, would be fully aware that the calendar would negatively impact sales. This company would also be aware that any other company would want to avoid facing the juggernaut of SW in the box office directly. Disney would be able to announce what date they would want and keep it and force the other companies with much smaller movies to release that week later.

Finally just edged out RO.



Really, no one is gonna acknowledge that a user seriously just said "ok boomer" on this site? Man I get heat for far, far less. xD



ROS made $3.19M at the DBO in its 7th weekend. This is 39.5% lower than RO's $5.27M for the same weekend. Currently, ROS has a DBO total of $507.1M. This is 2.5% lower than RO's $520.2M for the same time period. If this holds, ROS will finish with $518.9M compared to RO's $532.2M.

Currently, the FBO makes up 52% of the WW BO. If this holds, ROS will finish with a FBO total of $561.1M, 7.1% higher than RO's $523.9M. A WW total of $1.08B, 1.9% higher than RO's $1.06B.

Definitely a massive under performance.  Disney did not spend $400M-$500M making and marketing this film to finish less than 5% above the spin-off that is RO, actually below it at the DBO.  If only those idiots knew if they released just a mere 7 days earlier, they would have made $300M+ more, audience reception be damned.  I guess they were afraid of the mighty Jumanji sequel.

Edit: Interesting read.  Especially seeing all of those films whose last film installment outperformed the previous one.  The funniest bit, though?  LOTR:ROTK only saw 3 extra days in Dec compared to ROS, yet is outperfoming its legs with UNADJUSTED numbers.  Adjust them for inflation and its not pretty.

ROS made $2.31M at the DBO in its 8th weekend. This is 20.9% lower than RO's $2.92M for the same weekend. Currently, ROS has a DBO total of $510.6M. This is 2.7% lower than RO's $524.6M for the same time period. If this holds, ROS will finish with $517.8M compared to RO's $532.2M.

An interesting note about the FBO total. It seems that it was overestimated. Last weekend, the FBO was above $551M. Yesterday, they adjusted it down to $550.7M. Today, it was adjusted down further to $549.7M. Not really sure if that includes this past week or not. Until further updates, I will just assume it does. Currently, the FBO makes up 51.9% of the WW BO. If this holds, ROS will finish with a FBO total of $562.2M, 7.3% higher than RO's $523.9M. A WW total of $1.08B, 1.9% higher than RO's $1.06B.

I honestly think some media outlets are still salty that all the hate that they threw at Joker didn't kill it.  Probably burns even more now that it won an Oscar.



It's alright thismentiel. You've won. Time to go, maybe watch some movies you like for a change.

Nah.  I already stated I'm tracking this film til 10 weeks, with a final update (which may not even be necessary with how the film is going), so that's what I'm going to do.  Nice try, though, acting like I'm in this thread every day.  Sorry if the underperformance of these films hurts you.
