    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? :-)

“It’s the job of the artist, to exploit connections. You see, I speak on behalf of the world of the artist without hesitation! People don’t realize that the part of the playwright is finding something for people to talk about. If you are writing about a historical episode, or two characters in ‘Hamlet,’ you have a structure for free.”
~ Tom Stoppard

“This is momentous. I think it is the true beginning of the crumble of the patriarchy. We’ve been living under it for centuries, and I don’t think this would’ve been possible in any earlier period in history. I think all of the baby steps that we’ve taken toward getting more women in positions of power — cinematographers that are women, and actresses who develop their own projects, and studio heads that are women — I mean, it was always one at a time, but it’s been slowly building. I think what’s happened now, it’s like, “Okay, the jig’s up, folks. You’re not going to get away with it. I’m not going to protect you if you treat me badly or disrespectfully.” We now have a woman cinematographer nominated for an Oscar, finally, in 2018. Finally. We’ve had a woman director win an Oscar. So it’s baby steps, but now I think it’s going to change drastically. Plus, I mean, look at Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman was a great movie. It was beautiful and it made a lot of money, which is what talks, of course, in this industry. So I think we’ll be seeing more women in positions of power.”
