In a typical summer, no doubt, but this year it’s going to depend on how the coronavirus situation progresses.

Yep. Star Wars box office numbers have been disappointing since the second week of The Last Jedi’s run.

The Lion King was the second highest grossing film in the world last year, trailing only Endgame, with receipts of more than $1.6 billion. It bested sequels to Frozen and Toy Story, two other MCU films and the Star Wars finale. It’s awfully hard to imagine Mulan doing better than that.

Oof, had forgotten about that. Back to therapy I go.

I think Quiznos is in worse shape than Subway is. They went from more than 5,000 franchise locations at their peak to fewer than 800 today.

Yeah, this doesn’t look like any part of a handgun. I’m going with spare batarangs, maybe the folding kind, held in place by the clips.

Yeah, I’ve been on the “email me when it’s in stock” list for months. The drought with the Index is starting to look like terribly poor planning with respect to the HL:Alyx launch.. How is the game going to sell units of their VR system if their aren’t any units to sell?

Yeah, the heavy armor on the chest and shoulders reminds me a lot of the Arkham Knight suit.

Heaven forfend that fans of Leia get even a little service in their direction. Why show something as satisfying as her training to be a Jedi, even besting Luke for a moment, when we can just assume it happened?

With that gray hair, he ought to audition for Mr. Fantastic.

I’m going to continue to suspect shades equals mirror universe until sadly proven otherwise.

Good point, even Kirk didn’t recognize some swear words from 1984.

It’s just ticket sales data, I don’t understand why you’re reading this much into it.

I did realize after I posted that I should have specified non-sequel/reboot, as The Lion King remake did surpass Captain Marvel by a massive amount.

Captain Marvel made 1.13 billion dollars in global ticket sales in 2019, making it the fifth highest grossing film and the number one highest grossing non-sequel film of the year.

That is such a good analogy, I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s exactly what the Wachowskis were looking to reference.

Neo might be, but it’s hard to explain what Trinity’s situation is, given the end of Revolutions.

Okay, sure, Commodore Oh’s a Zhat Vash in disguise. But those shades? Those shades. I need more Starfleet security chiefs walking around with “deal with it” shades. Read more

The show may have been made for a streaming service, but it’s unfortunately not being delivered like one. If this was a Netflix release, I’d have probably watched the first 4 or 5 episodes at once, and at a minimum gotten to the part where they finally begin trekking around the stars.
