I'm going to assume that this movie will break into the Top 25 all time movies for money made. Ice Age has made more than $850 million, I can't see a movie coming out during Christmas time that can't top that. If you're willing to concede that it's going to be better than Narnia, then it will gross more than $750 million (add another $60million to adjust for inflation and maybe even more due to the sheer number of theaters it's going to open in)

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

Maybe you didnt notice, but Fox has sneakily tossed in the Chipmunks sequel the following week, as backup just in case their big budget movie doesnt do so well.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I'm excited for this flick since I'm a huge fan of sci fi movies (this has been a great year for scifi btw). James Cameron AND Sigourney Weaver? Thats a great combination.

Only thing I don't like is the way the aliens look; reminds me way too much of Night Elves from World of Warcraft but I suppose I'll be able to get over it as I did Ewoks, Gungans, etc.

More scifi blockbusters the better especially if its the legendary James Cameron behind it all.

Maybe you didn't notice, but HB just pointed out that Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakquel is coming out a week after Avatar, clearly proving that Avatar is nothing to be excited about & is destined to be a massive failure.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

Hyperion, you're comparing this movie to sequels whose predecessors were huge successes and who were aiming mostly at a very young demographic. While this movie is going to make some coin, the assurance of this movie's box office success isn't truly deserving. Especially considering the lukewarm reaction to everything thus far. The fact that they're now releasing uber kid-friendly TV spots isn't a great thing. It's a sign of desperation. I don't see this movie coming anywhere close to $1B. You're acting like Xmas releases produce like Summer blockbusters. Well, they don't.

That article is an interesting concept but it's wrong. The lowest common denominator are who see movies. I can't tell you howamy people recmended transformers to me.

For some reason you think people want to see something new. They don't they want the se story told with different characters with the same happy ending. Shakespeare wrote stories that everyone knew and was celebrated for it.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I saw the trailer again during the previews before 2012 and it was more spectacular on the big screen. My interest keeps wandering on this one.

Nope I am saying the studio that released both, made sure to release Alvin and the Chipmunks as a backup just in case Avatar doesnt do so well. The original chipmunk movie cost 60 mill and brought in 210, of course they will go the safer route this time. If they lose big time with Avatar, at least they can recoup with the Chipmunks.

Doesnt mean they think Avatar will tank, they are just being cautious.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I watched HBO's first look for this movie, 1.78:1. It was more impressive than the trailer on FOX or Apple. And it will have more warts than a Pixar movie or The Dark Knight (live effects), but I admire their gall. And I think I will go see it now in IMAX.

If it's, say, 10% worse than T2, that's still good.

Honestly, I don't know what to think but there's no question I'm seeing it and seeing it as soon as it comes out.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I saw the first few trailers and was left confused and not overly eager to see this film. I just checked out the latest one and thought it finally made sense, the movie looks pretty good now.

I'll also be going to an iMax 'cos we just opened up a new one and I've never experienced iMax neither.

If action movies were greek gods, T2 would be Zeus. So 10% worse would still make it worthy of being in the pantheon of greatness.
