I swear I saw ads in the theater for that thing like two years ago.

I'm hoping Vikander goes for an OG approach with Tomb Raider and just plays Lara as a murderous somersaulting magpie woman brutally annihilating anything that dares stand in the way of her amassing more shinies for her trophy room.
I tend to use my dad's thoughts on upcoming movies to estimate their earning potential. For example, my dad says he would like to see that movie with the Lego Batman in it and so I think the movie with the Lego Batman in it will be a big success.
EDIT: Nevermind the rest, misunderstood the statement. But the blasphemy stands.
Wait, what? Wasn't he just playing like a 40+ year old version of his character in Apocalypse?
Hidden Figures is performing quite well. It'll top $60 million this weekend and ought to clear $100 million fairly easily - especially if it sneaks into the big Oscar categories at the last minute. Meanwhile, Silence had better hope IT gets some Oscar nom buzz because otherwise it is probably not going to make back its budget, at least not in the US. Meanwhile, La La Land continues to perform strongly (it'll probably be the highest-grossing BP winner since at least Slumdog Millionaire and probably since ROTK) and Rogue One hits $500 million in the US this weekend - in fact, at this point I believe that AOTC is now officially the only SW film to not be #1 of its year in the US.
And in terms of "flops," Passengers hits $90 million this weekend - at the end of the day, not a disaster but certainly not nearly what Sony was hoping for.
Did a WWIII shootout really happen in Boston? That's some bullshit there.
Supergirl as a Jihardist. Now that was a surprise.
Paramount only distributed it, it's the half a dozen production companies who'll lose most of the money.
On SILENCE, I assume a lot (if not most) of the funding came from Europe, where they're not in it to make money but Art. See also: the EU banking crisis and Formula 1 series.
