Early tracking out for the Fishboy

https://deadline.com/2018/11/aquama...-christmas-box-office-projections-1202510967/

Aquaman in its five day run from Friday to Christmas Tuesday is expected to bring in between $60M-$70M. Before anyone can scream that’s lower than Justice League ($111.9M first five-days), many rival distribs expect this $160M production to leg the holiday out. We’re hearing that in regards to the paid tickets for the Dec. 15 Amazon Prime preview of the James Wan-directed movie at major cinema circuits, 65%-70% have already been sold. Also working in this film’s favor compared to other DC movies is the fact that Wan brings his Conjuring fanbase. Before the arrival of Disney’s Star Wars movies over the last three Christmas, Warner Bros. held the top December opening record with 2012’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at $84.6M. Aquaman is solid across the board for men and women in unaided awareness, though the latter category with a number around 30 is close to where Captain America: Winter Soldier was ($95M three-day opening).

$160M budget for Aquaman is surprising. I don't think it'll blow up like Wonder Woman, Black Panther, or even Deadpool did. I can see it being comparable to something like Doctor Strange's numbers and sufficiently successful.

I don't believe that $160M number at all. Most of the film looks to be done in front a green screen or VFX entirely. Also, that kind of money across five days seems really week.

Jaime Reyes ‘Blue Beetle’ Latino Superhero Movie in Development at DC and Warner Bros (Exclusive)
DC and Warner Bros. are developing their first Latino superhero movie about Jaime Reyes, aka the “Blue Beetle,” individuals with knowledge of the project exclusively tells TheWrap.

Mexican-born writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, who wrote Universal’s “Scarface,” has been tapped to write the screenplay. Dunnet-Alocer also wrote the upcoming “Miss Bala” remake for Sony.

Zev Foreman is executive producing for Warner Bros.

I mean anything is possible

If wanted could have the movie out next Fall!
I just want it to be good. My ideal story for a movie would be a not so subtle analogy for the current state of xenophobia in the world, having Lex as President against literal aliens and having his agenda promoted by xenophobic internet talking heads (ala Shapiro, Alex Jones) represented by a G. Gordon Godfrey character. Now I doubt we'll get anything that ballsy ... but I hope they touch on something deep or at least come close to what Black Panther did, as opposed to something generic. Also, who the heck will direct this? I legitimately can't think of any candidates that pop up as right for the job.

I can see Beetle getting another up and comer like Shazam and BoP. That seems to be the direction WB is going with these movies. So I would expect whoever gets Beetle, it won't be someone most of us know.

It's entirely possible. Then again I could see WB try and lure a Latino filmmaker onto this and Robert Rodriguez could be a good fit for the project. Yes, I know that's a lazy choice but if they want someone with lots of VFX experience coming off Alita who is also a minority himself I could see it.

Warners and Rodriguez have a good relationship too, if memory serves, as he was attached to Jonny Quest among other projects at the studio over the last couple of years.

Beyond that there's Miguel Arteta who has been working in the studio system for years and some Latino talent behind animated films but I'm not sure any of them are ready to make the job to a live action studio feature. Needless to say I don't see Del Toro or Cuaron taking on a gig like this.

I like the little snippet we get.

I hope all the movies get origina/coverl songs. "To Be Human" and the cover of "Everybody Knows" were dope.

tbh cutting Babs and Onyx makes sense for BoP to keep from juggling too many characters, especially when Babs' role wouldn't have been a significant member of the BoP.

Kristen Stewart-ish actor, though? What's that even mean?
