The Rise of Skywalker box office results: predictions and expectations - NO SPOILERS — Page 16

It’s still to early to tell but I think I’ve come around to the idea that the Mandalorian might help TROS’s box office, but not in the way people suggested. No, it’s not because it’s so good I think it’ll reinvigorate fans, it’s because Baby Yoda memes are absolutely everywhere and are doing a lot to just generally raise awareness and hype for Star Wars with general audience members who aren’t usually much invested in the series. What sort of effect this will have, I don’t know. But it’s interesting to consider.

So in essence, it’s no longer the reign of Darth Jar Jar being the key to all this, but the rise of Jedi Knight Baby Yoda uniting fans and passersby.

I think memes have become in terms of movies/tv a sign of good health, it’s the culture communicating with what’s currently relevant and engaging to them. But such as the nature of memes returning Palpy might have been a corporate misread of this.

I bid $1, Bob.

EDIT: And it was in Japan after opening weekend.

Worlds serve stories, and once the story is told the world goes away. To set something else in the same world is merely to craft a similar world for a new story.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Hype and box office talk will pick up considerably when people start tweeting after the red carpet premiere tonight.

I think expectations will increase dramatically.

Domestic: 702 million.

Last minute box office predictions:

200 opening, 500 domestic, 900 worldwide.
The movie will do well at first, but negative word of mouth will result in lower box office returns, especially outside the USA.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000 edits), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian.
May the midichlorians be with you.

I’m feeling a 199 million dollar opening.

‘Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker’ Eyes $450M+ Global Debut
https://deadline.com/2019/12/star-wars-rise-of-skywalker-global-opening-box-office-1202810995/

“Disney will ring out its $10 billion-plus global 2019 with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in what is expected to be a $450M global opening.”

“The expectation is at least $200M+ in U.S./Canada (with an asterisk — read on) and $250M abroad.”

“Stateside advance ticket sales are on par with Last Jedi four days before opening and indicate a $200M opening despite the fact that tracking has the J.J. Abrams-directed ninth-quel at $175M.”

‘Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker’ Advance Ticket Sales Now Pacing With ‘Last Jedi’

https://deadline.com/2019/12/star-wars-rise-of-skywalker-advance-ticket-sales-fandango-last-jedi-1202812274/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

“Advance ticket sales for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are pacing with 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the same point in their Fandango cycle. We heard from other exhibition sources that a $200 million-plus opening is within reach. Also working greatly in favor of business this weekend: 15% of K-12 schools are out on break Friday, with another 79% colleges. Those numbers jump to 96% and 97%, respectively, by Monday.”
