Bigger progress is being made this weekend by the Patty Jenkins-directed film, especially in a Hollywood that counts only 4% female directors across 1,000 top movies (for the period of 2007-2016, per a USC study): Wonder Woman shattered the domestic box office opening record for a movie directed by a woman, beating previous champ Fifty Shades Of Grey by Sam Taylor-Johnson ($85.1M). Wonder Woman is the second benchmark for female helmers in less than a week following Sofia Coppola’s best director win at the Cannes Film Festival for her movie The Beguiled; it marked just the second time in the event’s 70-year history a woman has won that prize. The hope from these events is that the major studios embrace female directors for big-budget projects in greater numbers.

Yes, there’s too many party-hardy movies, but it’s also about positioning and Rough Night looked like a watered-down version of The Hangover versus STX’s Bad Moms, which was a more tangible … [Read more...] about ‘Cars 3’ $53M+ Is 3rd Best For Pixar Series; ‘Wonder Woman’ Wows With $40M+; ‘All Eyez On Me’ Solid – Sunday AM Postmortem
According to Deadline film finance sources, the consensus is that Pirates 5 is looking forward to an estimated profit north of $280M after all revenue streams are tabulated. This is based off an industry-projected final global box office haul of $850M. Keep in mind, Japan hasn’t opened yet, and that territory delivered the franchise’s best grosses out of any foreign country — re On Stranger Tides ($91M), At World’s End ($91M) and the first movie Curse Of The Black Pearl ($60M). Disney always knew that domestic wasn’t going to be that strong for Dead Men Tell No Tales, especially after On Stranger Tides six years ago delivered only 23% of its $1.045 billion global tally from domestic. … [Read more...] about How Much Profit Will ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men’ Tell?
