November basically seems to be tentpoles and counterprogramming. Thor/Bad Moms 2, Daddys Home 2, JL/Wonder, Coco/Orient express. {nm}

V: Wonder [WONDE] gets pushed back to 11/17/17   RazorHawk on Feb 13, 13:05

More commercially viable directly against Justice League? Edge of Seventeen all over again. {nm}   notfabio on Feb 13, 13:10

Counter-programming against future DC Comics films could be economically viable, as we've learned DC doesn't scream "quality."   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:20

If they wanted to be ballsy, they'd open it up against Wonder Woman. {nm}   diamondman56 on Feb 13, 13:49

Wonder vs. Wonder Woman. How Wonderful. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:50

Nice, like Inferno / Into the Inferno {nm}   shadowking on Feb 13, 13:53

How Infernal. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:58

Oh wow. Women LOVE Thor! I "wonder" how many will forego seeing Hemsworth's biceps to see Mila Kunis be a bad mother! I'm intrigued! {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:48

Based on the box office of previous Thor movies, it seems like a lot of fandom is more tumblr oriented than anything in the Bad Moms demo. {nm}   reelreptile on Feb 13, 14:04

I'm genuinely not sure what that means. Thor has men, women, young, old, fanboys, MCU, Disney, sci-fi, fantasy, rom-com, etc. fanbases. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 14:15

and Hulk {nm}   RazorHawk on Feb 13, 16:19

and Doctor Strange. And probably a couple other surprises we haven't heard of yet. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 14, 16:19

Not sure about anyone else, everytime there's news on this, I always think of Wonder Woman... {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:18

Every single time {nm}   shadowking on Feb 13, 13:25

Is it just me: or does it seem "Wonder Woman's" buzz is beginning to slide? It'll be a hit--but can't be much bigger than SUPE2 or SUICD.   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:28

No, it's just you. {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:31

In all seriousness, if SUICD can gross $283M (by delist), I'd think Wonder Woman could too even with the summer competition {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:33

Which admittedly, SUICD did not have. {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:33

LEAVY, THBDY, and BGUIL are not competition for WONDR. TRWRC made $100M so there's an audience for MTDTR. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:36

TRWRC had Apatow. This has Goldie Hawn's plastic face. LEAVY, THBDY, and BGUIL are female-driven counter programming to the "male gaze." {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:37

They would have zero effect on WONDR's opening weekend. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:39

Who's talking about just OW...? I'm talking the full 4 wks till delist. Isn't that what we're all trading for in the post-OW adjust HSX era? {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:40

Superhero films drop off regardless of the competition. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:41

Stiffer competition can take hold if DC Comics's films have not improved their critical quality (including WONDR) by then. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:43

and little effect by WONDR's third and fourth weekend. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:40

Warner Bros. would be thrilled if it's that "disappointing" {nm}   diamondman56 on Feb 13, 13:50

Warner Bros., so far, has treated DC like a spoiled child: big box office, but they've not been happy at all with the films or fan backlash. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 14:00
