The shazam trailer might as well be the fabled Nintendo direct at this point

You gotta stop hyping shit up weeks before it lands
I'm still hurt over prime 4 and the VGAs.

Haven't really gone into Nintendo hype threads since.

Few people have mentioned the trailer being complete for a while. Guess they want Aquaman to have its time in the sun before dropping.

It'll come when it comes and I'm excited for it.

Hopefully we get the costumes soon!

Word on road is that Cathy Yan didn't want the costumes to be overly flashy. Excited to see what we get!
I’m not really expecting superhero uniforms in so far as huntress having a mask and cape. Canary’s getup wouldn’t be out of the ordinary on the street and Harley’s got a bunch of looks.

If they're locked away on the Warner Bros lot, don't expect anything soon. Hell, wasn't Shazam photos being taken all over Toronto and Warner Bros didn't release an official picture for awhile? I seem to remember that, but I could be wrong.

This is very cool.

Also has people talking about Snyder's original 5 movie plan for Superman. Sounds cool. A shame it was scrapped in favour of chasing the MCU.

It’s be nuts if aquaman can pass civil war. It’s like the reverse dr strange making more than JL lol.
It's possible actually.

Again, context is everything. The next movie to take the blockbuster film slot would be Glass. That's currently sitting with a 39% on RT, so it's opening weekend is likely depressed. After that, the next competition is Alita. The Upside could push it out of #1, but there's not much in terms of 4Q films.

Much like Venom, which had a relatively open October, having no competition is basically an open road of walk up business.

Something about having a pop song like this is so perfect for Aquaman

BvS is so dim and gloomy that I had to question if my TV is broken. It's like HDR doesn't even exist

Glass is reviewing badly? I had a feeling it would for some reason. I still don’t get how Split reviewed so well. While I liked it, it still felt like schlocky ass Shyamalan to me.

Split was a solid movie with great acting and directing. Nothing too crazy with the story. From what I read the third act in Glass is crazy stupid

Split was dumb and offensive. The whole psychology/mental illness angle was just utterly stupid.
Yeah, I can definitely see someone coming away with that take watching Split. I don’t watch his movies for the stories tho if that makes any sense. His aesthetic draws me in more than anything else. It’s weird and it doesn’t make any sense most of the time but I get hooked anyway.

Still happy how my thread title played out!

Anyhow officially crossed #WanBillion at the box office, usurping the Dark Knight in the process. Will probably end up WB's 2nd highest grossing film of all-time.

So hard to judge the performance of Aquaman against something like TDK or any CBM older than a few years because of the explosion of the foreign market. But regardless it's a job well done by all. Funny that it didn't even need to review well all that well...just average was good enough

So Batman, Aquaman, Black Panther and Iron Man are the only solos with billion dollars.... Civil War is technically an Avengers movie so I dont count it. Nice. Really happy for Wan and Momoa.

I need Aqualad to be in Aquaman 2.

We all said the same thing about Aquaman.
The difference is that we know what the foreign markets reception to Wonder Woman is. Her box office was pretty much split down the middle between foreign (409) and domestic (412). Now, sequels tend to do bigger numbers, especially if they're reviewed well, so it does have a chance for sure. I think the foreign bump would have to be another 150 mil or so and they have to hope the US hold is there.

Wonder Woman did $821 million, so a billion for WW 1984 is definitely possible. Not necessarily guaranteed though, as foreign markets didn't take to it the first like the US did and I doubt WW 1984 is going to have the same kind of visual spectacle as Aquaman.

The good thing is, WW84 opening weekend could see a massive spike now that we know what to expect. Her 104 mil opening weekend should go up to like 130 which gives the movie a quick 25 mil bump to get that billy.

I know. But I was really surprised at WW’s international gross. They didn’t take to it as much as the US did. Aquaman is doing this on the back of International audiences.

I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to think it won’t reach a billion.
 
Just saw Aquaman.

Most probably the best DCEU movie (along with WW, yet this is more... fun).

And, at the same time, a mediocre movie.

Oh, well...

What pisses me is... you know you have a decent movie and you do not use it to strengthen the relationship between DC heroes?

I mean... even a very little interaction with Wonder Woman would have not damaged the movie.

It's great. Let's hope his sequel does as well as this.
