    TLJ nets $17m domestic on Wednesday, tracking 23% behind TFA.

    By comparison TFA made $38,022,183 on its first Wednesday for an increase of +1.8% from its first Tuesday.

    So TFA went up and TLJ continues to track downward from all appearances -- as always, Ross if you have some other data please let me know.


    EDIT: $16.9 mil domestic, for accuracy.

    Jesus-fucking-Christ, the actual reported amount for Wednesday is $16,889,863, a 16.6% drop from Tuesday. Are they sure this time??

    If the movie turns out to be well-received and a commercial success then I'm vindicated by my opinion of the movie. In the meantime, the fanboys be frothing.

    If the movie tracks downward and doesn't do as well as all of the other vastly overrated movies before it, then I don't really care as I still enjoyed it, AND fanboys still be frothing. Maybe even more as it "destroyed the franchise commercially" too.

    Either way, people take it way too seriously, and I win.

    It's making money, it's just not making "Star Wars franchise" money.

    But I hear you -- promise you'll come back to tell us that over and over again, YW?

    Nah, I'm busy, I need to scoot over to the Destiny 2 thread (another franchise featuring magical space wizards) to post about massive outrage over 3 of Coins, Loot Boxes, XP plateauing, etc. etc.

    MR2 -
    Nice breakdown.

    Carlo -
    I was fascinated by your interest in Wonder Woman's box office details, and I'm fascinated yet again by your interest here. No positive or negative opinion, just fascination. How many movies do you typically follow this closely?
    Get that weak shit off my track

    Not many -- only ones that really pique my interests and then only the ones that deviate from expectations, either bad or good. So I initially was following Thor Ragnarok a little bit in the other thread but it's been steadily overperforming industry predictions so... it got kinda safe and boring.

    So I will follow the Avengers: Infinity War movie, Black Panther and Star Wars: Solo off the top of my head. Probably add some other ones to that list as 2018 rolls on.

    *looks over at shelving crammed with Zelda, SW, Lego and SW Lego crap*

    So it feels like thereís an argument going on in the far reaches of the internet that I feel totally disconnected from. Itís probably not helped by the fact that I choose to put very little effort to seek out fanboy opinions on anything these days, so itís fair to say that Iím largely disengaged from what the prevailing opinion on things should be.

    Yeah Snoke was a wasted opportunity, and Finnís side quest was a bit pointless, but outside of that, this film kicked arse.

    I fully agree about Rose, too. She kicked arse (ďOMG youíre Finn!Ē Next minute, ZAP! Hahahahaha!) and Tran is an awesome and adorable human being.

    This didn't give you pause, Mick? It should have.

    EDIT: D'oh! Excellent point -- my bad, sorry!
