    WW will be quite a bit more profitable than Suicide Squad on the strength of costing an estimated $25 million less to produce/market and having already made $66 million more domestically.

    Since film production companies keep a good bit more of the domestic gross than international (we're talking anywhere from 55-90% depending on the film, studio, theater chain, week of release, etc vs 15%), domestic gross is much more important dollar for dollar.

    Merchandising and licensing-wise, I can also picture Wonder Woman coming out ahead. Sure, Hot Topic was loaded with Suicide Squad tchotchkes, but WW is a more established character with more mainstream appeal.

    Yup, I haven't looked into it but since Hot Topic and friends carry all sorts of WW gear, that's probably a given. #girlpower

    Juuuust to put this run into perspective, apparently media corporations like money

    Week 7 of BvS: $1,474,110

    Week 7 of Suicide Squad: $5,951,011

    Week 7 of Wonder Woman: $10,602,201


    It should come as absolutely no surprise that WW has utterly crushed anything Mad Max: Fury Road accomplished financially -- time will tell if the accolades will follow.

    You've seen my wardrobe, Hot Topic would be a step-up.

    I finished watching season 6 of Homeland and not sure how I feel about it. The paradigm has shifted, and it's a little sickening actually.

    Last night I tried to watch Mockingjay - Part 2, as it'd been on my list for a long ass time. Fell asleep 20 minutes into it.

    Double-funny since it's basically just a heist movie. Between Thief and Heat, Michael Mann elevated the genre into an art form, FFS!
    Back in the late 90's Mann was attached to direct a Neuromancer adaptation with, at various times Leo, Keanu, and for a minute, Will Smith attached to star. I looked forward to it for a long time, and then it descended into development hell never to return. More recently, Vincenzo Natali(?) had a script and got deep into preproduction with Gibson's approval, but it fell apart just before filming.

    Ozark on Netflix. Jason Bateman launders money for a cartel.
