    The Great Wall will bomb in the U.S…. The only way it will succeed is if Trump gets started building his Big Beautiful Wall and people get confused and go to a movie they think Trump produced in Trump Towers.

    Mads is representing Denmark, and the Danish should be proud. He's definetely not representing all European nations. Please don't pile all European countries in one basket and using the EU flag is understandable, but not very diplomatic…

    Grace, could you react to the new beauty and the beast news please? (posters, the up close images of the costumes, emma not wearing a corset, etc)

    business question Grace. Why do certain movies open in a few theatres then go wide? What's the strategy there? I love your channels. I consider myself a cinephile but have learned so much about the business side from you thanks so much!

    Rogue One opening , is smaller, but really is stronger than BvS and Civil, just because its december so it will for sure defeat those movies easily, the question is by how much it could even beat dory but it will depend

    The rotten icons on Batman were a nice touch ๐Ÿ™‚ I love that three weren't enough and Grace splashed a final fourth one for good measure

    I'm mexican and I love star wars, when I told one of my friends that i had just watched Rogue one, the first thing she asked was, "how was Diego Luna?" and she's just gonna go watch it because of him, it will be the first star wars movie she'll watch, just for Diego Luna

    Grace I respect your opinion but I think you should probably add a little more context in your assessment of Will Smith's box office struggles. I don't think it's as much about him not being a box office draw in general as it is about him picking movies that don't fit his skill set/marketability. Out of those movies you showed it's not a coincidence that the only two box-office successes were action movie(MIB3&SS). The average movie fans simply aren't interested in seeing Smith in non action movies but they'll still watch the hell out of him in an action franchise, SS is proof of that. Now before you say "ppl just wanted to see Harley&Joker" audience tracking suggests they really wanted to see Smith too. According to the audience tracking research done by ComScoreโ€™s PostTrak in terms of individual draws out of the entire Suicide Squad cast Smith drew more audience members on his name alone than any other individual cast member. 23% of the audience say they went to see the film because of Smith, the next closest cast member was Robbie with 21%.

    Not saying Deadshot ended up being the most popular character, Harley clearly was. But he was definitely popular enough to warrant his own spinoff film. Again Will can still be a big draw in an ACTION movie or even a comedy similar to Hitch. He made his name as a movie star with action movies when ppl think of Will Smith movies they think of action with a sprinkle of humor. He simply needs to get back to his action movie roots and stop trying to chase Oscars. Worry less about doing a movie that will win him a statue or prove his, "acting range" and worry more about doing what does best, ACTION movies. Preferably ones that don't star his annoying son while being written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Will should just accept the sort of film actor he is, there's no shame in being a action movie star. Can't wait for bad boys 3 and would totally watch a deadshot movie. Btw, Focus didn't do that bad it still opened number 1 and made 150 mill on a 50 mill budget.

    "Imagine if [The DCEU] had good reviews".
    Imagine if Warner Brothers could actually finish their DCEU movies before releasing them. That would be groundbreaking.

    About international, European countries are NEVER represented despite being the a biggest market… I guess they should start complaining as well.

    Does Grace still hold the view that diversity doesn't sell? Disney have embraced diversity more than any other American studio in their films and now they have made more money in a year than any studio in American history. That should be a sign to hollywood.

  15. Delboy0

    Lin Miranda is an America star, not a global star so Disney are making a mistake with him. Most people outside of America don't care about a New York show about a US politician they have never heard of or care about. It is part of the reason why Hollywood favours British actors over American actors now. British actors have greater global appeal because the BBC have greater global influence than the American media in this fragmented media age. There are no American actors under 30 that have global fame any more. No disrespect Hamilton isn't a globally famous show because people outside the USA don't care about American political history like Americans do.

    Moana is on pace for over 200 million if you look at the daily box office patterns. Frozen was at about 190 at the same point in its run, and then did 210 more.

  17. andrew giordano

    Marvel should be happy with Doctor Strange's high $600 million final gross (or low 700s). The only reason GotG and TWS made the money they did was because there were no major movies opening after them, so they had all the time to make money. That is not the case for doctor strange

  18. Elephant In The Room Sahib

    I refuse to see Rogue One, I won't go into detail. BUT refuse to see it. Also it didn't help that last years star wars sucked!!! it was just a redo of A New Hope.

  19. Black Engineering Student

    Rotten tomatoes has nothing to do. Will Smith was in Suicide Squad which critics didn't really love but it made tons of money.

  20. Door Donut

    I've seen India close to number 1 on most of the lists of top movie going countries, why would hollywood not represent them in these blockbuster movies then???

  21. Max Bingham

    Hey grace had a question the YA (young adult) book to film adaption was once the biggest thing in the Hollywood industry with most of those films making huge money at the box office but now that trend seems to have died with mostly all of these films out now not doing well or just failing miserably at the box office what do you think the creators behind Hollywood's newest biggest trends ex comic book/superhero movies/live action fairytales movies can do from meeting the same fate or do you think this is inevitable cause audience taste will always change absolutely love your shows and watch you every single day and would be amazing to see my question in morning movie news thanks and keep up the good work โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

    You know what's funny? Manchester by the Sea still not released in theaters in my country. Not going to for next two months.(Release is 02/09/17. Two weeks before planned DVD release. Lol.) Another funny thing – in my country Rogue One wasn't in fact the #1 the last weekend. But the most funny thing is there was absolutely no marketing for Moana in my country. Judging from the numbers in our country – Moana made less money so far than Sing, which is going to be released tomorrow here. That is some professional marketing there, isn't it. ^_^ I'm quite sad about Moana, tbh, not just US-wide.

    I had the worst movie-going experience ever with Rogue One IMAX Capegate. ๐Ÿ™

    The movie itself was great (I reckon it's my favorite StarWars movie), but Ster Kinekor Capegate will not receive another cent of business from me in the foreseeable future. Movie started an hour late. Coffee order was not delivered, Dead pixels on projector. Absolutely disgraceful service! I will rather watch future movies at a normal cinema where my time is respected and my business is actually appreciated.

    Does anybody really care about 3-D anymore!? I was really hoping that fad would be dead by now. They should really stop the 3-D crap and open up a.m. showings๐Ÿ˜Š. It would really help out the people that work third shift.

  25. Returning Shadow

    I think passengers is losing steam because people know what a liberal cunt Jennifer Lawrence actually is with her support of HITLERy ROTTEN CUNTon. Nobody wants to see a movie with the star being a massive idiot supporting an douchebag political candidate. George Clooney can confirm that. He hasn't been relevant in box office draw since he publicly supported the muslim monkey currently occupying the oval office. Lawrence can no longer carry a movie on her shoulders alone. That's why Joy tanked and even with Bradley Cooper she couldn't make Sienna (ever heard of it) a draw AT ALL. X-Men franchise wasn't on her shoulders with the ensemble casts and now Passengers is relying on Chris Pratt but Lawrence's political mouth killed it.

    Will Smith has also become worthless at the box office. It's not a coincidence that his movies are tanking after his public support of the muslim monkey wanting to raise everyone's taxes to 30% 5 years ago. What these liberals seem to forget is that they love to spend money, usually other peoples' money while the conservatives hold onto theirs and they are the ones hitting the theaters more because they can afford it. Why else do you think the producers didn't want him in Independence Day 2, not that it would have made a difference in hind sight.

    The ONLY ones in America who give a shit about movies in China box offices are the studios that made them. The general public could not give a duck fart one China box office numbers.

    If they make Poe and Finn a thing in the next movie or at least have them legitimately flirt.,,, Star Wars will own my ass forever. I've already gotten more and more into the movies as I get older. Such an underdog in the beginning and a stylistic franchise.

  27. Hey Hey

    Realistically, I don't really think people from most parts of Europe care much about Mads Mikkelsen representing them. However, I am from Denmark like Mads Mikkelsen, and even though he wasn't the only reason I saw the movie, he definitely made me not wanna miss it. That doesn't count for much, since Denmark and Scandinavia as a whole (I am also very excited to see other Scandinavian actors in big movies) has so few citizens, but it is probably all it does to draw people in. Hopefully Mads Mikkelsen brought some people in on account of his acting skills and the fans he has made through his work, though!

  28. M-W-X

    Hey Grace, do you think Disney should have released one of moana's songs as a single on the radio. I believe they did that with frozen's let it go. Was that a missed opportunity? Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜บ๐Ÿ˜Š

  29. Efrain Ortiz

    Suicide Squad was a bad movie I'm shocked it did so well WB is very lucky. I haven't seen BvS so I can't comment on that. I am really hopeful for WW it actually looks really good and might be the DCEU's first critical win. I have a feeling rogue one will do very very well once word of mouth gets around.

  30. BoomStick Critique

    The reason that will smith movie diddnt do well isnt because of smith its because no body cares about that film will needs to be in films people want to see like comic book films an animated flicks

  31. gotta create channels to comment!? WAH

    What the hell is going on with Disney not letting anyone see Rogue One with promo and/or employee passes at theater until January?

  32. SwaggerLikeUz

    The fact that Rogue One came in a very close 3rd when the film is carried by original characters versus renown characters in Batman, Superman, The Joker, Iron Man, Capt America, etc, proves what franchise has the biggest fandom. Rogue One didn't even have the hype, anticipation, nor aggressive marketing campaign those DC and Marvel blockbusters had either. To be the first SW spin off and to perform like this I know Lucasfilm and Kathy are pleased.

  33. Michael Jacobs

    How do they know what percentage of the audience is male/female? I question whether the place they get their data from is accurate or representative of accual numbers. Theaters sure aren't collecting this information
