of course it was.

Will GOP-dominated House investigate this?
Prolly not.

As of now, there was, and is, no House investigation into the Steele dossier or FISA abuses.

Worst ...not sure if correct but

Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Finland...maybe. The USA has issues but it is not the worst 'Problem Gambling Country'. I don't know why Australia is so bad.

2024 will be another bad year for box office movies

There will be people watching 'News' instead of cinema, maybe following all the political Democrat vs Republican or Nu-Conservative vs Neo-Liberal or watching Biden vs Trump crap on tv, there will probably be a surge of islamo bombings jihad shootings somewhere, maybe Europe or Middle East or maybe USA or India and done to also try influence US elections

The paragraph before that was important...

Quote:

The Wokecercist seems to be doing pretty well overseas with over $40 Million of its $85 Million current total. It's made 283% of its production budget back so far, which already means that it's a winner. It's sitting at 21st place now if my previous statements on the top 20 are correct.


I was saying that I didn't think Killers of the Flower Moon was going to eat into the Wokecersist's profits. And it doesn't appear that it did. It only lost 48% last weekend, which is 10% less than the 58% it lost the weekend before.

I also was saying that Five Nights at Freddies was going to basically put an end to the Wokecersist, so I suspect that it will lose a lot more than 48% this coming weekend.

Precilla shouldn't really hurt anything other than possibly stealing some thunder from Killers, but that movie did so bad on opening weekend how could you even tell if that happens?

I think if I were going to put my recent predictions on movies in the movie thread, I would have put where I guessed Killers opening weekend take within $130k and how much I said it was going to ultimately lose for Paramount/Apple, especially because of disinterest by international audiences. (If I recall, I called $132 Million worldwide gross is all it's getting).

Not only has Trump allowed the Democrats and the Media to hang themselves with their own nooses left and right, but he's also working on getting access that was illegally stripped from him on Facebook and YouTube before he gets back on Twitter and his campaign actually begins.

We're two years minus 3 days from the day he'd be inaugurated after winning the 2024 election, and everyone in the media has already counted him out. That's exceedingly easy to do 22 months before an election is set to take place when the person they're talking about doesn't get to say anything that anybody besides the people who are already going to vote for him get to hear.

But what the Media doesn't want anybody to know is that they NEED Trump. FOX and MSNBC are doing really bad compared to 2 years ago, but CNN is basically a dying entity at this point without Trump.


So no... I won't predict he wins 2024 just yet. But what I will predict is that out of the blue you're going to be hearing non-stop from Trump.

I don't know when. There are too many variables at play to make a prediction on the date right now. It could be this summer. It might be in the winter.

But it will happen. And it's going to make things a lot more exciting than they are right now.

And also expect almost ALL news coverage of Ukraine to disappear when it happens too.

On the contrary, I usually get everything right.

If Chauvin doesn't win his appeal it's because the FBI asset that stabbed him 22 times on Joe Biden*'s order won't fail the 2nd time.


And if you think Joe Biden*'s polling is bad now, just wait until Trump gets back on Twitter.

He's got zero reason to bother doing it right now until the Primary is over.

'Sony' has made money, Mario, Spider-Man No Way Home, Godzilla they also have the other property like Goosebumps, Angry Birds, Bond, Karate Kid, Jumanji, Playstation Gamer and 'Music' properties...a future possibility for profits on 'Bad Boys' was probably killed by the Will Smith slap

I never said Barbie was going to fail. I just more or less said that I personally thought it looked terrible and I didn't understand why it was going to be a success, and such a massive one at that. There was never a "Failure" thread created for it. They had a hell of a marketing crew on that one. It is the single reason why Warner Bros. isn't joining Disney on the top of the 2023 losers list.

If I'm going to take an "L" on that thread, I'm going to take it for my extreme underestimation of Oppenheimer in the same thread. I did say on more than one occasion that there was no way in hell that Oppenheimer was going to gross close to a Billion and it ended up very close at $953,390,290 worldwide. That movie made more than double what I thought it ever would.

Somebody could probably write a book about the whole Barbieheimer phenomena.

Quote:

'Sony' has made money



I haven't updated the charts since October 31st, but for the top 100 grossing Worldwide Movies in 2023*, here's where Sony stood...

Total Combined Production Budgets: $361,000,000
Total Worldwide Gross: $1,429,753,682
Total Profit (Using 2.5 times the Production Budgets): $527,253,682

On October 31st, it was in 3rd place of all the studios behind Universal ($1,452,995,847 Profit), and Warner Bros ($812,438,849 Profit).


*When I say "Top 100", it was any movie that happened to be in the worldwide Top 100 as of the time I updated the lists. More than a handful of those movies have aged off the Worldwide Top 100 list as the year dragged on.

There was also a small handful of movies that I didn't add to the list because there was no production budget or opening weekend data for them. If memory serves, these were only Anime flicks and they may have aged off of the Top 100 by now anyhow.

Because it's only the Top 100 grossing flicks at any point in time when the lists were updated, it likely doesn't paint the full picture for many of these studios. They likely had low budget and/or indie flicks they released that hardly did any business at all. I know this is the case for sure because Disney has had quite a few of them released under their FOX Searchlight banner. They were all financial failures in 2023, at least according to the 2.5xRoT.

They will lose more territory than they gain, but Ukrainian victories won't be as stunning as last year as Russia has more manpower and a shorter front line to defend. Bakhmut will hold. More mobilisations and replacements of top Russian generals wouldn't surprise me - this year, or next.
