Distribution sources always say that people don’t begin to go to the movies until after Christmas, however, Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the exception to that rule (and possible even Jumanji: The Next Level with a $30M+ start, maybe more). Skywalker is still looking at a $200M+ debut, though some firms are playing it safe and calling it lower at $175M when it opens on Dec. 20.

 

a $175MM open and TLJ-like 2.8x multiple, gets you to $500MMish US.

A producer for Tron Legacy (among a host of other films and shows) is giving a class at Columbia about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The class is specifically about how to avoid writing a terrible screenplay like TLJ. It apparently explains all of its failings as a screenplay like being emotional dead and completely disjointed.
 

Found that sort of funny considering how many people swear this piece of poo is some great addition to the series.

What does this mean?

If you wanna be a good filmmaker - go to Columbia!

Why am I getting spammed with stories about Daisy Ridley not “acknowledging her privilege”? I’ve see like 5 different sources talking about this like it’s some sort of huge deal.

It cannot be discussed without receiving a warning for discussing politics.

This.

I just don't understand how people can defend TLJ! It was horrible!
