Looking at the release schedule for Sept to Dec, we have these coming:


IT, Chapter Two
Downton Abbey
Rambo: Last Blood
Joker
Addams Family
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
Terminator: Dark Fate
Frozen 2
Star Wars IX


Obviously, Star Wars, Frozen, and IT will do well. Which others do you think will be big hits ?

I think The Addams Family might do well because it hasn't been done in computer animation, kids always liked it and it will seem familiar for the parents.

The only one from that list that I like is IT. For all those folks who saw the first movie, you kind of have to see the end.

Rambo and Terminator seem like old blood instead of new blood. Downton Abbey as a movie I don't see playing well over here, but much better in the UK. Jay and Silent Bob has a limited, but probably vocal audience. Frozen and Star Wars will take in big money even if they are not up to the titles.

Joker is the Joker in the deck for me. I think it will be too dark and nichy for a wide audience, but then again it might be a masterpiece.

The last RAMBO in 2008 only made 43 M domestically. Will this one, the fifth, do better as it is supposedly the last one ?

And aren't people tired of Terminator ? The last one in 2015 made a mere 89 M in the U.S. Even when they bring Arnold S. back, it does not seem to make a difference. Now this one, # 6, is supposed to be a direct sequel to # 1 and 2, and it ignores # 3 to 5.

Not that it will be a blockbuster, but in late Sept you have the SOPRANOS prequel, "The Many Saints of Newark", with Ray Liotta, and a whole host of others.

I want to see "Rambo vs. Alien" and "Terminator vs. Batman." I did like "Alien vs. Predator." Dark Horse Comics already did a "Batman vs. Alien" story as well as a Batman and Tarzan team-up but maybe those are going to be movies in the 2020's.

Yeah, we've reached the point where you can dislike a sequel because it's ignoring a sequel that you like.

Er, sorry but that is completely wrong. This latest film is entirely done using 3D computer animation. There isn't a hand drawn frame in the whole production. I take it you meant it isn't photoreal computer animation as seen in the remake of 'The Lion King' ? CG is pretty much standard for all types of animation these days...with the exception of stop-motion such as 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' but even then CG is used to produce immediate playback of frames and to add motion blur and other effects. Heck, even South Park was computer animated.

Sorry, I don't understand the difference you are pointing out. Whether 3D or not, its still computer animation. Or did the joke go over my head? Big Grin

Hehe, now I'm confused. You said: 'might do well because it hasn't been done in computer animation'. The new Addams Family film is entirely computer animated. It isn't live-action, stop-motion or hand-drawn traditional animation. It has all been created on a computer, so there wasn't a joke for you to miss Smile. How did you think it is/was being made ?

Now I get it, you thought I was saying its not in computer animation. That's my entire post above. I was saying that prior Addams were not done in computer animation and this one might do well because it is something different. I guess I should have added one word, it hasn't been done in computer animation BEFORE. Big Grin

Except for Hobbs and Shaw, which has at least broken 100M, the films released in August 2019 don't seem to be doing very much of anything.

Maybe it's me, but I can't remember a year where so few movies even interested me enough to say I'll wait for the DVD. Wink

"Hobbs & Shaw" is currently the # 13 movie of the year in terms of domestic gross. However, I am sure it will be knocked down a few notches in the months ahead, when IT Part 2, Frozen 2, and Star Wars come out.

I think it is safe to say that when 2019 ends, Disney and Marvel with have 8 of the 10 biggest films of the year. Nobody will even come close to that. Quite an accomplishment.
