Avengers: Endgame gets a 1.2 billion opening weekend.

Excelsior.

Avengers: Endgame shattered the bounds of realistic opening weekend predictions this weekend, with a towering $350 million domestic and $1.2 billion in its global debut. Of note, 45% of that came from 3-D showings around the world while $91.5 million came from IMAX (double their previous opening weekend record) and even 4DX earned $15 million globally on the title.

Domestically, the film earned a 2.23x multiplier (not bad considering the numbers) and snagged the biggest Thursday preview ($60 million), the biggest “pure Friday” ($96.7 million), the biggest single-day gross ($156.7 million on Friday counting the previews), the biggest Saturday ($109 million, down just 31% from Friday) and biggest Sunday grosses ($84.3 million) even when adjusted for inflation.

My opening weekend prediction for Avengers: Endgame.

Ready? Here you go: a metric sh*tload. Which is what everybody else is saying, only they’re trying to gussy it up more: “Fandango reported this month that it sold out thousands of Endgame showtimes on its website and that theater owners were scrambling to post new showtimes and screens to meet fan demand (some as early as 4 AM and 6:30 AM for its opening day Friday). In its first seven days of presales on Fandango, Endgame sold five times as many tickets as last year’s Avengers: Infinity War.”

I’ve seen everything from three hundred million domestic to nine hundred million worldwide, and I absolutely decline to come up with a harder number than ‘metric sh*tload.’ This movie is gonna be a monster. I didn’t have trouble getting a ticket only because I’m going next Monday at 11 AM.

Feige: Phase 3 of the MCU ends with Spider-Man Far From Home movie. …?

I am skeptical. “During a recent interview with Bilibili, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Phase 3 actually ends with Far From Home, saying, “It’s the end of the third phase. You’re the first person I’ve told that to.””

The Clone Wars Season 7 trailer.

I don’t actually watch Clone Wars, although I readily concede that I should. But a lot of people are apparently really eager for this… and you’ll get it! …On Disney+.

Disney+ to drop November 12.

According to ComingSoon, $70/year, or $7/month. All the Disney stuff we were expecting, the Marvel stuff including the three new television series (guess those folks were doing those while the other half was making Avengers: Endgame*), Star Wars (including two new series, including one based off of Rogue One). Bunch of television shows, classic movies that the Mouse owns, and… a new Phineas and Ferb movie.

So, they’re gonna do a Hawkeye series on Disney+.

This works for me.

It’s from the comics and everything, and Marvel has gotten pretty good at panning for gold there, so I am cautiously optimistic. I’m also subscribing to Disney+ anyway, so there’s that. I know I’m going to end up watching this whether I was optimistic or not.

Looks like the Dumbo movie ain’t doing so hot.

I understand that these live-action flicks generally have been bringing in the cash for the Mouse, but I’m wondering whether Disney went all the way back to Dumbo this time because they wanted to muddle the copyright waters. This dude is saying no, and he raises some fair points, but: I still dunno. I could see a remake of Cinderella, because it was a proof of concept; but why Dumbo? It’s not really a popular movie today, is it? Classic, sure — but popular?
