^All good points. In five, ten, or 15 years I'll for sure be enjoying LP's movies more than the single Sony film from 1998. Still i'm not sure about ticket prices. The theater nearest me has fully converted to upscale reserved seating, at $12 a pop for GA. This would mean at least $50 for my family to go to the theater every time, and I have a close friend who does just that, probably closer to $80 after concessions with his 3 boys.

I myself though, found a theater that is about 10 miles away. its a bit more well-worn, but you can see brand new movies there for $5.00 matinee, and $7.50 GA. We just make sure we plan to eat before or after the film, so no concessions. Its pretty much the only way we see a movie now, unless we want to wait 2-3 months and see it at the mall which are $4.00 for tickets, which now with streaming, and home media releases getting shorter and shorter makes less sense.

case in point- captain marvel was made available for digital download just 81 days after its theatrical premiere (or 11 weeks 3 days). It hasn't even hit the mall yet, but probably will next week, at the same time as the DVD release :lol: .
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Audiences love the movie and are giving it high reviews, let’s hope that gives it legs.

secret life of pets and dark phoenix should cannibalize enough box office this weekend to sink KOTM...

Honestly, I wonder how any movie makes money. They cost so much to make it's crazy. When a filmmaker I like makes one of these big movies it almost just makes me nervous!

Guys, I have bad news.

Mothra vs. Godzilla only made a third of what the previous film took in. The Showa series is cancelled.

Shin Godzilla supposedly cost somewhere between $10 million and $15 million, right? And a little over a decade ago The Host had a similar budget. Neither had Hollywood quality CGI, but the digital effects look respectable enough, and I've seen both play like gangbusters with audiences beyond the dyed-in-the-wool monster fan.

That's something I've been thinking of for a while: you get filmmakers clever enough to turn out slick, engaging films on a budget. Basically, what the John Wick movies manage to do. I think the Godzilla series could thrive in that niche for a long time, not having to compete with, say, Marvel movies in their own game.

^ Exactly! John Wick 3 cost $75m, about 5x to 7x the budgets of Shin Godzilla or The Host. The right filmmakers could make a very ambitious Godzilla movie with that kind of budget.

WB and Legendary made a noble attempt to turn Godzilla into a franchise that could do enough business to justify Hollywood tentpole budgets with each outing. G:KotM's performance suggests that's not a viable strategy beyond the hiatus-breaking reboot, so maybe that just means that new Godzilla movies need to rely less on pricey CGI from multiple effects companies and more on the ingenuity of practical effects that previously sustained the franchise for 50 years.

^ Work smarter, not harder! Exercise the Roger Corman part of your brain a little!

I don't think this strategy is that unrealistic. In fact, it's probably basically Toho's strategy already in the event they press to button to green-light another donestic film. If they want to keep the American Series going... I hate to say this, because we all love physical media, but you know who would totally go for this strategy? Instead of Toho / Legendary / Warner Brothers imagine Toho / Legendary / Netflix.

Ok, so the film should be close to if not over $200 million worldwide as of now, the foreign numbers haven't been updated in 4 days.

Dark Phoenix is getting killed at the reviews...Pets should be expected to win the weekend... it will eat Godzillas young viewership..

Talks about a combined Godzilla project sounds great in theory... can I finally get my Kaneko-verse Godzilla and Gamera crossover film?

I think a co-production between legendary and toho wood be a great idea it could be just like the old days between them and AIP.

The problem is the bar has been raised to high. Hollywood thinks Godzilla should make Marvel type movie money. It isn't realistic. Godzilla may be a household name but not a billion dollar franchise like the Avengers or something.
