    It’s kind of mind blowing that rogue one is a 500+ grosser and no one even noticed hardly any coverage of its numbers. If episode eight splits the difference between episode seven and R1 does that mean we will be inundated with stupid articles about what a box office failure it is?

    What are the possibilities E8 follows the LOTR trajectory with each installment making more money than the last?

    I thought Rogue One got plenty of coverage.

    I thought Rogue One coverage was pretty extensive. Disney/Lucasfilm are victims of their own success. Billion dollar massive hits are kind of expected. What I imagine they are trying to do now is figure out how to squeeze out even more money since there won’t be a sequel. Books, comics, cartoon and yes I would bet the characters popping up in other stand-alones will come. Plus a few collector blurays. God they are just printing money with this franchise

    Episode 8 will likely drop from Episode 7 and yes we will be inundated with stupid articles about what a went wrong when it tops out at 1.7 billion. Won’t that be fun.

    Arrival will finally crawl pass the $100m mark today. But can the Passengers arrive too? :-)

“There’s a mass belief that if you’re texting, you’re somehow not interrupting the conversation—you’re not being rude. It’s an illusion of multitasking. I started filmmaking when people didn’t expect to have a phone on set, when it would’ve been seen as unprofessional to pull out a phone. Phones have become a huge distraction, and people work much better without them. At first it causes difficulty, but it really allows them to concentrate on what they’re doing. Everybody understands. I’ve had a lot of crews thank me. With a set, we’re trying to create a bubble of alternate reality.”

“I’ve always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it’s the right approach for this experiential film. Many of the filmmakers I’ve admired over the years have used sound in bold and adventurous ways. I don’t agree with the idea that you can only achieve clarity through dialogue. Clarity of story, clarity of emotions—I try to achieve that in a very layered way using all the different things at my disposal—picture and sound.”
~ Christopher Nolan
