Fast 6 was the 3rd highest grossing film this year ww. There's no reason it should lose it's audience just cause it's not a Sci Fi/fantasy film and being released a year later. It made more money then a majority of those and has just as big of a built in audience. If the quality of Fast 7 is lower then Fast 6, that should make a difference in its full run but I can't see it losing a majority of its audience regardless. Gotta give them a reason not to show. Safe to say the next one will be hugely successful.

Fast and Furious isn't losing it's audience. Honestly, the addition of Jason Statham has probably brought on more people.

Well there ya go.

Do you guys think Maleficent and Edge of Tomorrow will put a dent in DOFP's BO run?

Well, do you think it'll be #1 on Maleficent's opening weekend?

It's a Disney family film in the summer, so I'm sure Malificent will be #1 when it opens and take away some of the heat from DOFP. But I dont think enough to do strong damage to DOFP's overall box office. Need to see the trailer for that though before I make a call, I think it has the potential to do very well.

Of those two - Maleficent will be the biggest competition. It's a Disney produced movie about one of it's biggest and most popular Disney villains played by Angelina Jolie. It's going to make gang-busters at the theatre.

It could, and probably will, give DOFP a run for it's money the following weekend.

Maleficent is going to be huge. It has too many things going for it.

And that's why DoFP can't put a foot wrong. It has to get good word of mouth and deliver on all fronts.

I think that happens with all films. There could be good WOM for DOFP too.

I would be worried about Godzilla. If this were 1997.

Angelina Jolie only gets people into theatres when she Is In action film kicking butt.

Disney live action films apart from marvel films and soon Star Wars don't always rake In the
money.

Yeah they are terrible at marketing. That's why I'm sceptical it will be that great of a hit even with all it has going for it.

Honestly, I was one of those people that thought John Carter looked stupid.

^Good point. So execution of their properties can also be said to be a hindrance.

Sleeping Beauty and Disney hold strong with families and all ages. This is not a John Carter situation, people already know what it is and Disney will not make that mistake with marketing again. Unless the trailer looks like ****, alot of people will go to this.

I think we are dealing with at the least OZ numbers.

Alice and OZ made bank. Malificent is in the same category.

Disney has terrible marketing? That's a new one. Disney is a marketing juggernaut. They may have missteps at times, but they are still one of the biggest marketers out there with the range of connections that they have. Any project that they're behind, especially if it's something having to do with one of their longest standing and most popular franchises, is something any film premiering around it should take note of.
