    I know you don’t care for the star or the movie (which I haven’t seen), but Captain Marvel did just fine at the box office. Or do you consider $1 billion worldwide to be a disappointment for a C-grade hero flick? Pretty good ROI for Disney on this one.

    How do you respond to the fact the Disney was buying blocks of tickets to pump up the numbers? Been documented a number of theaters having sold blocks of tickets and no one showed up to take the seats.

    It would be far more logical to have a joint Avengers Infinity War & End Game showing than a Captain Marvel & End Game. CM virtually has nothing to do with End Game.

    Edit- If you noted in the article it clearly stated that domestically, which is where the studios make their biggest cut, CM is $50 million below Disney's $450 million projection. Black Panther did a cool $700 million domestic. The overseas box office percentage that goes back to Disney is just garnish compared to the cut they get from domestic ticket sales.

    CM is at $408M as of Friday not counting Sat/Sun which should net another $5M+ CM will not be far off $450M domestic (maybe $430M). I can't say if that includes the studio buying tickets to pump the numbers (I don't agree with that). I plan to see CM before Avengers (have not seen it yet) and will see both in the next week so there is still money to be made in the theatre for CM.

    CM actually was doing better sales this week (leading up to Avengers than it did last week was doing $1M+ per day so there is possibly another $20M to be had.)

    I also do not agree with Disney mandating that theatre still show CM especially on a giant opening weekend. When I see these movies (like when I saw BP when it was out a few months already) then the theatre are nearly empty. I have been in a theatre with just 5-6 other people. Often times most theatre will drop the movie will still be one or two showing here and there for month yet to come. CM is just at 50 days and IM3 was out 70 days while BP was out 170 days (likely was just a small few theatre that kept it running that long).

    It's hard to respond to rumors that are basically a few Twitter accounts, and "unnamed" movie theater managers. Until there is some actual evidence, I'd tend to go for what is most likely (Occam's razor usually wins out), and that's the fact that Disney wouldn't perform illegal, fraudulent activity (this would fall under investment fraud, inflating numbers to appear more successful to investors) that would mean potentially millions, if not billions, in fines and jail for top execs. It would also be very easily traceable to see who purchased tickets online if pursued, so no easy way at all to cover yourself.

    good point, like it or not CM is a huge hit (not BP level) but heck it'll pass IM3 and all non-Avenger movies (not including BP) and likely was far cheaper to make than 3 hour Avengers with a dozen legitimate stars. CM is nearly double the gross box-office of Ant-man or Dr. Strange (worldwide).

    I was watching the extended edition of Hateful Eight (on Netflix), highly recommended if you like the movie. But came away not liking it near as much as the studio cut. But still worth watching and think there could have been a middle ground where there was not so much stuff added back in.

    I have to wonder if (with new streaming service) if Disney would ever make extended version of these MCU movies. I am sure that 3 hrs is a long movie but likely they filmed a lot more (like the LotR films).

    Oh please, they are already on record as having social media accounts shut down that were critical of of Disney and blacklisting a newspaper (LA Times) not to mention movie review sites having hugely skewed numbers. RT flushed 10's of thousands poll results so not to impact Captain Marvel's opening day.

    The Last Jedi ring a bell?

    Companies buying their own product to plump the numbers is as old as the hills, Scientologists have been doing it for decades.

    Another example and it happens more often than you think.

    Again, just saying that there is no direct evidence of this at all, and all that you have is a few Twitter accounts and a few "unnamed" theater managers. Hardly anything that you could say is a smoking gun. I tend to take everything with a grain of salt and prefer to believe things where there is at least some decent evidence. Blacklisting the LA Times for a few days is not an illegal activity that would result in fines and jail - it was an action done because they disagreed with their article and took it a bit too personal. I can't find any info of Disney shutting down critical social media accounts, so I can't comment on that.

    I don’t follow how blocking social media accounts equates to Disney buying tickets to their own movie. I’m sure someone has a theory of how that would make economic sense for Disney but it’s not intuitive. And as noted above if they're doing it in secret it’s probably illegal. Not impossible but you’d want to see some real evidence. And for this alleged scheme to turn CM from a flop into the level hit it has been, you’d need hundreds of millions spent by Disney on tickets. Shouldn’t be hard to track down at a public company if there’s any truth to it.

    And yes, CM made way less than BP. As did the other single-hero Marvel pictures. It’s also by almost anyone’s review not as good a movie as BP. But CM was still a huge money maker for Disney.

    Doesn’t mean CM was a good movie, lots of turds do well at the box office. Just means a lot of people paid to see it.

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    I didn't say it did, they are separate but related points.

    Edit: So they spend millions on tickets? Hollywood accounting, it just gets written off as a marketing expense.

    You put forth one possibility or another without acknowledging a third which is middling numbers which is also forbidden.

    Disney needs the title to look GREAT and there is a lot hinging on those optics. Disney paid Larson $15 million for the role and the head of Marvel has made it clear Larson is going to be the face of Marvel studios post End Game. They can't afford C-list numbers like Ant Man for example which realistically Captain Marvel is C-list at best. They have been flogging CM like mad for months.

    She is the flagship character for Marvel now, taking the place of Iron Man or Captain America. I'd argue Iron Man WAS the flagship character for Marvel, RDJ nailed Stark so impressively and the first Iron Man movie was so well done it set the mark for the rest to aspire too. GOG came closest in my opinion, better than the other 2 IM movies.

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    Doesn’t mean CM was a good movie, lots of turds do well at the box office. Just means a lot of people paid to see it.

    Yup, marketing can work wonders. Also being the 800 pound gorilla in the room (Disney) doesn't hurt. Reviewers tend to be flexible when access and perks get cut off.

    Do some reading into Hollywood, its a corrupt and dirty place and has been since day one. There was a few sites I would visit that spent a lot of time going over the weekly insider dirt on various people in the industry and I had to stop as some of it is so twisted and dark as to put you in a state of despair. Disney is not immune to this just better at covering it up.

    A studio buying some movie tickets to bump the needle opening night is petty crime.

    If Disney was actually buying tickets in numbers sufficient to meaningfully affect the box office, that would have involved a lot of money and a lot of people. And conspiracies of that size are very difficult to keep hidden from view. To quote Carl Sagan, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” But if it’s true I’m sure the short sellers will find something more compelling than a single anonymous source.

    On the other hand, if you think Disney spent only a couple million buying tickets opening weekend, what does that mean? You’d need to account for hundreds of millions of dollars in phoney ticket sales if you believe CM was actually a financial dud (or even middling).

    It would be very easy to buy blocks of tickets, you think anyone is going to make a fuss? Theaters owners are not as they are going to get their percentage. Hell's Bells man, I can take my credit card, hit up Fandango and buy up blocks and no one would be the wiser.

    This isn't some grand conspiracy, it was reported on several movie news sites.

    Hollywood accountants lie like dogs, write offs are legendary. Hell man, they had cocaine for John Belushi in a movie budget and written off, they waste millions on the catering.

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    I will point out that the federal government hid from the public JFK was also shot from the front from an overpass. This is a fact revealed when the governments own records on the subject which were unsealed in 2017. The government buried that nugget since '63.

    Far as the FBI was concerned they had their man, he was dead move along nothing else to see. There is even a memo stating as such.

    You keep through a number out "hundreds of millions" which again puts forth a false argument. How much was spent? Can't say, but enough was spent were several theaters had blocks of paid for seats that went unused. All they need to do is create the perception the movie is good to get people out to the theaters.

    I have seen the movie, it really isn't that good and I'm being generous. End Game is a far better movie and Larson was clearly shoe-horned into it.

    I was pointing out the fallacy of your argument.

    If there is a half dozen credible reports on movie sites indicating "the hottest movie ever" is playing to empty seats even though tickets have been purchased occums razor points to the simplest answer, someone is padding the sales numbers.

    So it takes 6 repeated stories from anonymous twitter accounts and "unnamed" movie theater managers to convince you something is a fact?

    What is your standard of proof and why do you give Disney the benefit of doubt?

    Combined with the fact Disney blacklisted a newspaper, the director is on record in an interview stating they were successful in having accounts purged that were critical of Disney and Captain Marvel in particular and the shenanigans over at RottenTomatoes with vanishing reviews and obviously tainted scores I give it a more than probable odds.

    If there is financial incentive for someone to cheat without repercussion, then cheating will occur.

    The Last Jedi didn't get a 91% rating from "critics" because it was a great movie, there was financial interest for them to rate it so. I don't need to see a check from Disney to infer this happened.

    Quid pro quo.

    *SPOILERS* is in the thread title so I'd say it's free game.

    #3284 9 months ago

    Finally saw Captain Marvel today.

    I think it is the worst Marvel movie in the MCU by far, no humor at all.

    I fell asleep for a bit, there was way too much preaching that girls/women are better than men. I also think that CM is way too powerful, like she could destroy an entire fleet of ships without much effort. Initially thought when they were saying she is the most powerful Marvel hero that was just an exaggeration like she's not really stronger than Thor or Hulk. But it almost seems like she has infinite powers and could do anything at all.

    The pinball machine was the best part of the movie.

    If I never see Annette Bening in another film I’ll be fine with that. Wish that Marvel could leave the over the hill actors like Robert Redford and Annette Bening rust in piece.

    Brie Larson is not horrible but she’s not a great actress and has that angry face all the time. What could have been (Blake Lively for example would have been much better imo).

    Wait until you see Endgame then. Your head will spin. My biggest gripe about the whole movie (which was outstanding overall).

    *SPOILERS*

    I'd say Thor is the most powerful Avenger. He personally repeats it throughout the movies, it's a running joke, so it's pretty established. And Thanos goes around bashing Cap, Thor & IM into the ground, effortlessly tossing them around like ragdolls. (He did this ass beating without any of the infinity stones too, but whatever, I digress). Then when CM shows up, not only does she destroy his massive ship instantaneously, but Thanos punches her right in her resting bitch face. DIDN'T. BUDGE. AN. INCH. This got a fricking HUGE ovation from the SJW's in the mindless audience. I was just rolling my eyes. Then Thanos pulls a great move, drops the power stone to his other hand & sends her flying. It's still awful. Why?

    Marvel has a huge problem on their hands now. Now the writers have to figure out what to do with completely invincible, overpowered (and pretty unlikable) character for all future movies. A character with basically no flaws, that when she shows up, she can basically save the day. They are shooting themselves in the foot by making her so powerful. It's the same problem DC has with Superman. And that's why CM was in this 3 hour movie for like a total of 4 minutes. They didn't know what to do with her. At least Superman is vulnerable to Kryptonite!

    And how did she get so oversuperpowered by the way? Is she a god like Thor? A massive beast like the Hulk? Nope. Just blasted by an exploding jet engine. Whatever. #girlpower

    They would do well to write CM right back where she came from, right back into space for good.

    Her movie was okay, I liked the nostalgia of setting her in the past and crashing through the Blockbuster store. I liked the pinball machine scene. But...yea, an over powered character is no fun...particularly one that is always grumpy and super arrogant (in a no fun way) like CM is.

    #3287 9 months ago

    Captain Marvel is easily most unlikable marvel character. She's rude and condescending to everyone. Her movie was full of scenes of her looking down her nose at other characters. I enjoyed a lot of endgame but after a week of letting it sink it, it really has some significant flaws and introducing that character at this time was a huge mistake. They should have waited until after the Thanos story wrapped up. I don't really care any more as I'm burned out on these movies but it would have been nice to have a cleaner ending than we got.

    you forgot about the cringe-worthy female hero montage lol. was just so obvious what they were trying to do... took me out of the experience. they have created (re-created from comics etc) a lot of bad ass characters male and female (sans captain marvel) but they didnt have to shove that scene down our throats lol.

    That scene didn’t bother me. Yes, sure, it was forced together and made no sense and did take you out of the expirence a bit, but I was alright with it. Had that been how the day was saved then I would have gone bonkers but in the end it wasn’t so it was fine for the 60 seconds it was on. They had a similar (though much smaller scale) scene in Infinity War as well.

    I don't understand how marvel can seemingly have 21 movies tie in together so well, while star wars episodes 7,8, 9 weren't even written together and don't work well together. How can that happen? I "switched" from Star wars to marvel and it has been a lot of fun watching these marvel movies.

    Marvel properties were an unknown quantity. Star Wars were supposed to be a slam dunk. So they let the A Team do Marvel and the C Team handle SW.

    I just hope that one day we can move past that - would anyone blink an eye if there was a shot of 6 male avengers working together for 30 seconds? It wouldn't even get noticed.

    This x1000. The Marvel team made me care about a character that is an Fing TREE!!

    Quoted from Eryeal:

    I just hope that one day we can move past that - would anyone blink an eye if there was a shot of 6 male avengers working together for 30 seconds? It wouldn't even get noticed. You wouldn't think "Damn I wish they wouldn't ram that male testosterone down our face like that! It took me out of the movie!"

    if they did a cut scene thing like that where they focused the camera and brought in each male character without the female characters it would have equally taken me out of the movie experience and go "WTF" where are all the bad ass female heroes at? its not a middle school dance, how about they fight side by side lol

    Disney has announced the next Star Wars film, looks like it will be 2022. Doesn't say who the director will be.

    They also announced a new Indiana Jones film. So this will be one of two things. A recast/reboot, or 80 year old Harrison Ford back in the role. Either way, fuck off.

    Maybe it'll be "Indiana Jones Jr." with Shia LaBeuf.

    They didn't announce a new one, just an updated release date. It was actually announced almost 3 years ago with a planned 2020 release. It's not a reboot - Spielberg directing with Harrison starring, no Lucas involvement.
