Can any movie do better that The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot? I mean, yes. Almost certainly.

But in a moral sense, should any movie do better than The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot?

No. Absolutely not.

I don’t know. If it’s still number 1 by the time we get to Glass, that will probably do it. But there’s a part of me that doesn’t think it will retain the top spot for three more weeks.

The most interesting thing to me is that Mary Poppins Returns actually went up 20% on its 2nd weekend. That's quite unusual, though the time of year is an unusual one.

Also, Bumblebee only dropped 3%. A week ago Forbes was casting doubt on its ability to cross $100m domestic, but it has a much better shot of that now.

Remember when everyone was gasping in awe that CRAZY RICH ASIANS had only dropped, what, 25% in it's second weekend? And here MARY POPPINS RETURNS and BUMBLEBEE exceed that mark...

I'm starting to think of them as last years this years you know what I mean here's GREATEST SHOWMAN and JUMANJI.

Also holiday releases, its worth noting. Latter weekend increases are rare, but if they are gonna happen they seem to happen far more often in January than in the summer (when CRA was released)

I'm sold on the title alone.

This year could be Disney's biggest ever. And I don't just mean break their current record, I mean set a record that even they will have trouble matching for a long, long time. I mean, they have:

Avengers Endgame (direct, post-cliffhanger sequel to a $2 billion dollar film, and culmination of a 20 movie hype-building effort)
The Lion King (far and away the most popular/anticipated of the various classic animated movies they're remaking with actors and/or realistic cgi, featuring a crazy stacked cast--there's a reason its trailer broke all those records before Endgame came along and broke them all over again, and this could easily end up outgrossing Beauty and the Beast)
Star Wars Episode 9 (despite the TLJ controversy, this is still a sequel to two of the highest grossing films in years and the end of an iconic story years in the making...plus JJ's last outing with Star Wars cleared $2 billion)
Frozen 2 (sequel to the highest grossing animated film ever made, and one that basically captured an entire generation of little girls)
Toy Story 4 (the latest installment in what is perhaps the most beloved animated film franchise ever, the crown jewel of goddamn Pixar)

That is insane. Collectively that covers literally nearly every aspect of film that Disney is meaningfully invested in right now--the MCU, "live action" remakes of classic animated movies, Star Wars, cg animation kids movies, and Pixar. Every one of those divisions within Disney has a chance to come close to or surpass their previous high-water marks, all over the course of a single year.

Put another way, if collectively those 5 films "only" grossed $5 billion, Disney would consider it a significant disappointment. Collectively totalling more than $7 billion just between the 5 of them is not necessarily off the table.

One wonders if they're going to spread the audience too thin with all that. There's a fair amount of overlap with all those. Or will they just eat the other studios lunch?
