These ex-China number for Bohemian Rhapsody are bonkers.
Well when you put it like that...Morbius will at the very least make money after production budget, marketing etc. It's a vampire/horror/superhero releasing in October. Like, helloooooooooo, that will make money. Not saying it will be venom but it will not bomb by any metric except for maybe critically
Past years have shown that one musical breaks out and does really successful (La La Land, The Greatest Showman)
That supposed deal with Tencent essentially had half the movie's budget already paid for, and it's still making money so good news!Bumblebee is already profitable according to Viacom CEO - The Last Knight had lost the studio (Paramount) over $100M. We are definitely getting Prime.
That also shows the importance and growth of the Chinese BO. It has/is becoming a huge monster and something that changes the narrative. Aquaman and Venom would have done okayish-good if China wasn't in the picture. If only studios can negotiate for higher percentage...
My guess is that they will be outliers. Both movies had very good ad campaigns in China; Aquaman with the power Tencent and Venom with the power of good boyfriend Venom.That also shows the importance and growth of the Chinese BO.

I'll be very interested to see how the 4-5 CBM (CM, Shazam, Endgames, FFH, Joker if it gets released) will perform in China and if Aquaman/Venom are the new norm or outliers for CBM BO in China.
I mean the entire trailer makes the movie seem like its a dog having a long "fun" adventure/journey home
Venom was also Tencent. So is Bumblebee and that seems to be doing good too, though not exactly setting the world in fire.
If IW made $360m and with the recent success of Aquaman and Venom what would be realistic for Endgame? $400m?
The film being a shitty remake of a not great film that was originally going to be distributed by Weinstein put the film at risk.
yeah I was reading ow this film has been in production in some form since 2011, then when it was made it was shelved due to the weinstein mess.
Friendly reminder Charles Martin Smith is also famous for being "guy wearing glasses" from American Graffiti and The Untouchables. Also directed Air Bud.Sony/Bona Film has the family canine film A Dog’s Way Home based on the W. Bruce Cameron novel, who also penned A Dog’s Purpose, which became an Amblin/Universal movie. Way Home is not sequel. The pic earned $535K at 2,657 locations that started at 5PM. The studio is expecting a $9M-$10M opening. The pic, directed by Charles Martin Smith, cost a reported $18M net and will play at 3,090 locations.
Sony's A Dog's Way Home took in $535,000 from previews beginning at 5PM in 2,657 locations. While Sony is still saying they expect a $9-10 million debut, this performance is actually ahead of the $455k in previews A Dog's Purpose brought in from previews before debuting with $18.2 million back in January 2017.
Congrats James Wan! In Aquaman with the rich environments and different kingdoms he introduced us to, he effectively setup a potentially new cinematic universe...within a universe! The Aquaman Universe. Hail to the Fish GAwd.
