personally, i feel like it's not worth it to have those accents, because he needs to get back on his feet and this is something the haters can hang on to and discredit the film.

but, he believe in his stories and characters completely, and he going to go for it. he'll make the attempt to have his vision fully realized. a lotta directors don't do it and they play down to the audiences.

In response to Reply # 60


          

Will most people get over it? Of course. But in a VO heavy trailer, the accents come to the forefront, are going to be noticed, and can be a little distracting. It's just something else to pull attention away.

I don't think anyone has said that the accents will affect the quality of the movie (unlike the original voice of Bane in the Dark Knight Rises teaser footage) but they definitely are jumping to people's attention so there's no reason not to discuss them.

All you doing us settin precedents and being emotional. So now the preview threads are the OFFICIAL RELEASE threads? We no longer following the established format of TITLE (director, year)?

I'm perfectly fine with this change first mention thread being the official release thread.

Just be consistent and stop being a bitch, Doorman.

What usually happens is that the preview threads BECOME the official release threads. Genius.

EDIT: And before you go frantically hunting for thread examples in order to "prove me wrong," you should go back and read that sentence again, which has a key word in it. You should probably look at that word before you resume your frantic thread search in the quest to "prove me wrong."


>I'm perfectly fine with this change first mention thread being
>the official release thread.

lol, you so goddamn mad you can't even write a fuckin' coherent sentence. You should have quit while you were ahead. Or, better yet, used the fuckin' search.


>Just be consistent and stop being a bitch, Doorman.

You first, you mushmouf, illegible-assed clown.

They usually become the official release thread...except that's not true. And I'd bet my login that if we go back and look at the last 50 official release threads on this board, MOST of them did not begin as the first mention/preview thread.

YOU go search for proof of your bitchassedness, dogg. I don't need it, because it's become obvious over the years. Go track down your anger-induced hypocrisy, if you can stand confronting it. I don't think you can, even if it meant kicking me off this board. So, just laugh this whole thing off, pretend you don't like being a bitch with a scintilla of power and end this exchange.

And putting on the grammar badge truly is the refuge of lame ass people. That tactic never fails when some asshole on the internet is mad and going down in flames.

right here

Instead, you'd rather call names and convince yourself that you're somehow being persecuted, all to promote some dumb-ass "agenda" that no one other than mouth-breathing, pussy-deprived losers, and bored niggas "who like to start shit" (same difference) gives two fucks about.

And *who's* being "emotional" again?

now niggas gotta be "pussy-deprived" if they agree wit me on some shit? You just be bangin out all the pussy, huh man? Who still uses "you dont get no pussy" in a goddamn argument between MEN...in 2013? You are a ridiculous ass dude.

Niggas agree with me because I state a fuckin premise and I back it and vice versa. I don't disagree with people I don't fuck wit off GP like you do, doggy. And if they fuck wit my "agendas"...so what? What does it matter to you, dogg? Why you mad tho?

Like, dogg, you are a fuckin relic of a bygone era. I've squashed whatever little tiffs I had my first few years here wit B9, Bomb, Nick, Kwez, etc. and you one of last holdouts COMMITTED to being a bitch ass dude. For what? Why so serious? Why are you STILL actin like I'm threatening the very existence of PTP with my rule-breaking, but it's all good when other people do the same shit?

And don't try to characterize me pointing out your inconsistency as persecution. Just call it what it is: A mad nigga wit some admin access being a bitch. You can't expect me to not point out that it's mighty suspect for you to consistently flex your admin login on me and then throw around words like USUALLY when I point out that you don't do that shit consistently with other posters. So I sit here and see that shit and I party because it reinforces my opinion of you.

You could be the coolest nigga in the world for all I know, but on this board your behavior is bitchmade. Really.

The floor is yours. I have no response after this.

In response to Reply # 0


          

Looks like it can go either way. Kinda surprised Will went with M. Night for a family film after the Last Airbender fiasco. I'm guessing it'll be pretty decent as Will has a good eye for genre fare.

This is clearly way more Jaden's flick than Will's. I wouldn't be surprised if Will eats it in the first act.

75. "New ad finally gets it right"
In response to Reply # 0


          

If this movie tanks, I'm going to put it on the marketing department. The trailers for the film were too serious and honestly, pretty bland. In just 30 seconds, the new TV spot does a better job of playing up Will and Jaden's relationship and injects a little humor into the proceedings (and actually lets Jaden say something, which I'm not sure happened in the initial trailers.)

Basically, the trailers seemed like an M. Night film, this ad feels more like a Will/Jaden Smith movie.

if the reviews are terrible and word of mouth is bad i'm skipping this. I got a couple of free movie passes so it ain't about the money. If it ends up streaming on Netflix i may give it a look.

http://variety.com/2013/film/news/m-night-shyamalan-blackout-falls-on-after-earth-1200485989/

"For Shyamalan, the pic represents the first time he has been strictly a director for hire and has helmed a film based on a screenplay he didn’t originate. The script, based on an idea by Smith, was written by Gary Whitta (“The Book of Eli”). Once Shyamalan came aboard in 2010, he reworked several drafts to better acquaint himself with the project."


Shyamalan is no where in the official promos.

91. "So yea this shit is a rental"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

The first 20 minutes before the crash had me and the audience rolling as to how bad it was. Then it got slightly better for the run time. But yea, I was bored through most of it. Jaden gets hurt/in trouble passes out, wakes up and keeps going. It repeats this scenario four times in the film. Also, you'll get used to the accents when it's just Will and Jaden for the movie, but the shit was horrid. Especially during the voice over in the beginning done by Jaden, that shit got the biggest laughs. Gotta say though I would perfer to see M. Night with a better script cause his directing here wasn't bad (wasn't great either). Only two parts to me stood out. That's when Big Willie flips out at dinner and when Jaden makes his pissed off monologue to Will on the mountain before he jumps off. Also, the only things I found cool was the body suit Jaden was in and the hologram communicator on his wrist.

But yea, it's not the train wreck I thought it was gonna be. Still wasn't that great.

Again MASSIVE SPOILERS





STILL HERE?










YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

So Jaden makes it to the tale end of the ship retrieves the beacon, and re-ups on supplies/weapons. The alien that they were transporting sets up a trap, setting off Jaden's fear (the alien can't see and huts and kills off of our fear pheromone. *snickers*). Jaden after getting a thorough ass whooping finally overcomes his fear and manages to "ghost" so the alien can't see him *snickers again*. He kills the alien hard body and Big Willie sees it. He sets off the beacon niggas come and scoop them up. Niggas are in awe that he took out that alien and he finally earns his father's love and respect.

FIN. Fade to black.

when it ain't about the WORK...it's racism. that's just my rule. once his persona became bigger than the work and the name-callin started...yeah, that's 'cism.

the artist MATTERS in art. the work doesn't stand on its own.

all i'm reading on different boards and stuff are haters commenting on how they can't wait to shit on this movie. why is that?

why is so much hate invested in night dogg? when did this happen? why do certain people try to out-hate each other when that dude drops a new flick? i've offered my theories about all this.

it ain't about the work. his visuals still can't be fucked wit. it's about HIM. for whatever reason, SOME people don't like him and they holding a grudge.

That's a huge leap that makes a concious choice to skip all parts in between.

No, the problem is the name became a draw with great movies, and then people began getting hoodwinked with shitty movies that pushed the name as a selling point. So shitty movies turned the name shitty, so hey, fuck this guy for making The Village and Lady In The Water. LITW was a huge, crusty jerk off sock and that pretty much murdered all the good will earned from his amazing initial three outings.

all i know is jackie brown, kill bill and grindhouse were consecutive shit bricks.

but, "cool" goes a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG way.

it baffles me that people still make "twist" jokes about m. knight, but when you bring up taratino's "n-word" problem, everybody throw their hands up like it's off limits...and he fetishizes sistas. but someone these elements of his "style" are off-limits for LAUGHING AT.

and don't get me started on nolan's cliche's.

OH. I forgot you've got this Q vs M agenda.

Actually... it does. Cool that falls short still goes miles further than pretentiousness that falls short.

I mean.. these elements couldn't be more different, but you're not willing or able to view them in their individual context. You've decided on an a vs b agenda and that's that.

>and don't get me started on nolan's cliche's.

Cool story. Nolan makes significantly better movies.

110. "Context means criticizing their individual work on their own merits. "
In response to Reply # 109


  

          

If Q dog is trash, he's trash. If Nolan is trash, he's trash.

Same goes for Night Dog.

Playing the "You shit on Night Dog, BUT WHAT ABOUT Q AND NOLAN?" turns the conversation on it's head and destroys any sense of objectivity. It's the worst kind of agenda, because you're playing a defensive game instead of a balanced one.

Q's N word usage is almost always reasonable in the context of his films. It always makes sense in that world. That's not even up for debate. His movies are usually pretty good to boot.

The problem is his constant fetishizing- some say bastardizing- of the word and black culture, and that's valid. It's troubling that he finds a way to fit it into everything he does. That's the issue IMO- not that he uses it, but that's he's excessive and damn near obsessed with it. He relies on "authenticity" as a catch-all crutch to justify his usage. Scorcese does this too, but nowhere near to the degree that Q does. He gets away with it because his films tend to be well made and exist in worlds that play up their schlocky sensibilities.

That's got nothing to do with Shyamalan's work. He takes intriguing ideas and characters and settings and often turns them into cheap, generic end products that fall far short of the hype, and make no mistake- he was HEAVILY hyped until The Village. The twist is his N word, that's his black culture fetish. The issue is never the twist as a device, but the execution and/or build that people tend to take issue with and he hasn't executed well between Signs and Devil. Night's movies are always earnest, yet the schlock creeps in where it's unwanted and unwarranted. The Happening is nothing but unintentional comedy from start to finish. Ditto The Last Airbender.

Playing the race card as the only reason people shit on Night and slobber Q is short sighted and misses all the context of what makes their films good or bad on their own merits.

"Objectivity"

Are you out of your fucking mind?


All criticisms are based on *standards*

WHEN you apply ONE set of standards to one set of
filmmakers and a DIFFERENT set to another, YOU ruin the
contract between art and opinion that fair criticism is
based on.

It becomes a game of people making shit up as they go
along, RATHER THAN evaluating and critiquing "based on
their own merits."

The "based on their own merits" is specifically what the
debate is -- what "merit" is based on changes from filmmaker
to filmmaker, critic to critic.

That's why the criticisms of M. Night are almost always
chuckle worthy as is praise of QT

They are inconsistently and disproportionately
(and inappropriately) applied

Is this the end of Jaden Smith?

No. He’s going to grow into a good looking, physically adept actor with huge power and nepotism behind him. He’s not going anywhere. He’s not a horrible actor but those two facial expressions aren’t going to do much for him.

unlike you, i'm not so pressed to hate that i'd believe that the hundreds of peoples intimately involved with the execution of the premise of this film are completely ignorant of fuckin evolution.

however, everyone involved in dark knight rises missed how SECONDS work and basic nuclear physics. so...ya never know.

Trailer says it's earth 1000 years in the future and there are some sort of massive spore things and hybrid jungle cat/baboons that really can't just "happen" in 1000 years time. OG Planet of the Apes gave Earth 2000+ years to breath into that reality, which was a bit more plausible if you accept the active intelligence of Cornelius. Or a movie like Wall-E which shows a decimated planet that didn't evolve, at all, on it's own in ~700 years time.

This though? I'm all for suspension of reason and science in an action or comedy movie (did I mention I saw FF6 last night, which is both and horribly implausible from a space/time perspective), but sloppy scifi is hard to excuse any more.

1. We're talking science fiction. Not HARD science fiction, which takes great care to keep things as realistically plausable as possible, but summer blockbuster sci-fi.

2. In a sci-fi world, it's a perfectly plausable idea that the evolutionary process could accelerate for whatever reason. No, this doesn't need to be explained in the movie.

No, because literally no genre gives more creative license than sci-fi except fantasy. You do realize the SS Enterprise is pretty much impossible to build based on the sheer cost, right?

Engineering is one thing with greater license that out and out natural sciences; the Enterprise is impossible to build based on our current mechanical abilities and capacity. But the future?

compare that to a leopard or whatever: it's not going to just quickly decide to grow antlers because it makes it more badass; that's not remotely how evolution works.

Ahem: I talked about financial ramifications. Before we even get to tech, that shit wouldn't even be financially feasable.

Cool. You may want to try and grasp the concept that this isn't a science movie, it's a scienve *fiction* movie.

I don't care to explain it, nor defend the film.

But people study evolutionary rates; whether propensity to/rate
of evolution can increase or decrease is an active area of
study.

I could also just tell you that SciFi worlds have been
based on dumber, more far fetched ideas.

But this is Will Smith we're talking about, so I have to
provide you links to things that you'll never read.

And it basically backs up my gripe by pointing to rapid evolveability mainly occurring at the smallest molecular levels that manifest over greater periods of time in large-scale physical changes.

I'm not pissing on your cheerios about this being a Will Smith movie, just that the basis of why these animals or whatever they have quickly became to be are after Fresh Prince and the Prince of Fresh Prince is silly.

Nah, Will has made movies I don't like,

Oh, it was fantastic, brilliant. Victim of a racist double

Do you want links to defend the idea that black men can

Because most of the sci-fi I've seen come from the majors lately doesn't make a lick of sense.

I think most are futuristic fantasy or something. I mean, speeding up evolution isn't as bad as cold fusion freezing stuff (Star Trek).

and don't try to offer up airbender as some huge opportunity because i ain't know shit about it until i heard he was directing it.

airbender is not an american icon with a built-in audience.

& getting a big franchise like batman is one thing, doing something with it is another

bryan singer got the previous superman reboot but hasn't exactly become a household name since then

>and don't try to offer up airbender as some huge opportunity
>because i ain't know shit about it until i heard he was
>directing it.

neither did i so i wouldn't dare go there

>airbender is not an american icon with a built-in audience.

agreed...but back to my original question

everything they make in hollywood done been done b4. EVERYTHANG.
Of course they gonna copy it. They either copy or steal,lol. What's new?

I know i am a crazy mutherfucker but you an idiot.

Shit, let me tell you something man. Even the profits on most of these films fake. Ain't no secret dude.

It's the wall street game.
Oliver Stone told you 'bout that shit.

Speculation on worthless products. Most movies today are worthless piles of dooo doooo.

Shyamalan started off with some promise but he failed. If it wasn't for the chip world he would have been out of the game. Internet buzz. Does not matter if After Earth flops or not cause the buzz is the dollars. Shyamalam ain't nowhere close to being Hitchcock, man. He is not a gret director period.

Will Smith is a hollywood money man. A charismatic actor with limited range. Imo his career is kinda like what Harrison Ford's was. Big hits in the scifi and action genre and hit or miss elsewhere.

It's just a game dude.

...and already this place is a shit show.


I don't got into M. Night's movies hoping they're gonna be bad. We need more minorities in Hollywood making movies for the masses that'll attract the masses.

Unfortunately, M. Night just like Spike Lee, Antoine Fuqua, Will Smith, and even at times Denzel all get in their own way.

But yo I really hope this dude can make a dope movie people can get behind again one day. This isn't it.

*EDIT* Longo was right. This post was bound to be doomed.

The Last Stand, Olympus Has Fallen, and Fast and Furious 6--

-- all non-white directors. So hopefully the disproportionate ratio will stop being the norm.

I'll probably delete most of the non-movie-related back-and-forth. I love that "what is science fiction" talk though. Unexpectedly interesting pre-release debate.

Engaging you in any serious discussion where you disagree with the other party is usually a fruitless endeavor, since you always make a beeline for the "u mad?" schtick.

So rather than waste time having a serious discussion with you, I cut to the chase and got straight to the inevitable shenanigans.

When Basa responds, I'll continue an actual adult conversation with him.

of M. Night but people seem to just be focusing on him. Most of the criticism seems to be about the somewhat lame/soft story (which M. Night didn't write), the misuse of Will Smiths talent by rendering him useless as he is confined to a chair, and Jaydens ability to carry the movie.

i ain't say they sucked. i said, they make wack stuff too. i've said lady in the water was wack. and airbender.

however, he better than them. taratino's scope is limited and the jig gonna be up soon. he was already STUCK for a decade before he thought up this "revenge" crap. people don't recall that his obit was being written in the early days of the net. he came back tho. good for him.

and before batman saved him, nolan was destined to be small-time niche director.

Yeah, but you're the one bringing them into play. That's the thing- nobody is saying Night Dog Sucks!! Nolan rules all!

>the jig gonna be up soon.

Was... and as you said, he made his comeback. Night has floundered for awhile, and he's had chances.

>and before batman saved him, nolan was destined to be
>small-time niche director.

Night had his chance with Airbender. He had a hot property that could be setting up production on a third entry as we speak and made a grand return of his own.... but he failed miserably. That was a huge fuckup on his part because that shit was awful in every way possible. He was handed a tentpole and folded. Nolan was handed a tentpole and camped the fuck out en route to superstardom. He's a legit sacred cow now.

They may not be perfect, they may do wack shit, but their movies as a whole hold up far better financially and otherwise. I think you forget how highly regrding Night was even after The Village. Lady In The Water was his death knell. Airbender was his chance and he fucked that off.

Still, you're the one turning this into an agenda post. combatting negative press and reviews with LOOK AT NOLAN! is just a diversion that avoids taking a hard look at Night.

You're so pissy over any criticism this guy gets you throw out the names of other directors to divert attention away from him.

He makes a shitty movie that bombs critically AND financially, you play a race card.

It's impossible for you to have an emotionless conversation on the man or his movies.

Oh yes, you are absolutely a crybaby on this subject.

You're till cool people in my book but this whole topic is a massive L for you.

i'm just another dude making an argument on a film message board. i have my opinions. i feel night dogg's persona colors critic's view of his work in a decidedly negative way and i believe the exact opposite happens with those two particular directors i referenced.

you talk about me coppin pleas for night dogg? well, paid professionals cop pleas for those two. over and over again, it happens.

why you so mad about this baffles me.

In response to Reply # 200


  

          

I believe you started the crybaby shit. YOU started the name calling, nancy. Not me.

Even now, you're being a pissy little girl about the whole thing.

You've got a roll of paper towels in your cunt as we speak trying to control that flow.

Your mans is LOSING. The two dudes you hate have been winning like a mother fucker during that streak. You spend 90% of your words in a post about the guy you LIKE bitching and moaning about the guys you HATE.

Nope, the bitch in here is YOO.

In response to Reply # 171


  

          

Or are you just going to sit here and have a pissy pity party over bad reviews?

Notice how you can't just talk about the movie without trying to divert people's attention to other directors? You can't even talk about the movie on it's own merits.

OH YOU SAY THE CGI IS BAD? WHAT ABOUT BATMAN?

Hey, Basa, stay on topic. This is about this film. Why can't you just discuss this film on it's own merits? Why can't/won't you offer a rebuttal to criticism instead of throwing out diversions for your anti Nolan/Q agenda?

But you're coming across a little.... well... female on the subject. Going a little too hard IMO. Not that you care, I'm just saying.

I could care less what you think of those movies or that bike. I enjoyed them and it's no big deal to me when someone doesn't. I just don't see the sense in the Night/Nolan/Q agenda.

In response to Reply # 191


  

          


science fiction that covers how human ruined earth are now cliche. CHECK! (so, it stands to reason that ANY film subsequent to AE that cover this territory is CLICHE).


jaden's acting is a "work in progress"...the kid lauded for karate kid and pursuit of happyness now can' act. CHECK! (convenient).

M Night backhanded compliment. CHECK!

he don't wanna see SFX monsters no more. he literally said he can go the rest of this life without seeing it. CHECK! (stands to reason he won't like any film that has these kinds of monsters)

When i saw that first trailer lol i was thinking, i know they ain't doing that shit(Avatarzan) again. It was an instant turnoff and i guess i never recovered.
The second blow was Shyamalan. You know it is kinda odd that he has never written anything as good as The sixth Sense again.

DID HE STEAL THE SIXTHSENSE? I PUT NOTHING PAST THEM FOLKS IN HOLLYWOOD. They steal other people shit even if it is copyrighted.


Oh yeah and by the way Longo you LLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTT!

Lol, How much money did you say AE was gonna make? bwood i think got this one right. I think he said 80 to 90million.

195. "13% on rotten tomatoes-- L. night shyamaLan LoL"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

it's been nine years since L. night directed a film that cracked 25% on the tomatometer. that film was the village. he's about to release a big budget summer sci-fi flick starring WILL SMITH that will finish a distant SECOND at the box office to a movie that came out LAST WEEK. they took L. night's name off all the trailers, off all the posters, off all the commercials, did everything they could to hide the fact that he directed this, and it's STILL GON' TANK! LOLOLOL!! there is no more entertaining saga in hollywood-- maybe hollywood history-- than the amount of rope "night dogg" has been given and will continue to get to hang himself.

and speaking of night dogg, get... cha... pop... corn... READY!

'cause the only question now is how far backwards basagLia and orbit estabLished will bend over to try and spin their latest absolutely positively unspinnable failed PTP agenda. will they:

1) blame 'cism?
2) make this about rotten tomatoes and film criticism?
3) write a dissertation-length essay on hipsters?
4) repeat the phrase "virulent macguffins" over and over till everyone forgets what movie we're discussing?
5) lock themselves in their rooms and masturbate furiously to the django unchained soundtrack?

phone lines are open. dial 1-866-LLL-LLOL and lock in your votes.... now.

No one cares, nigga.

If it does numbers, it's a W. if not, it's an L.

We all knew critics would shit on it. Will Smith been taking Scientology brickbats for 18 months. It was predictable that the issue would show up in 75% of the negative reviews of the film.

cause a lotta the motherfuckers in here killing this film
were talking about shit like DKR was damn near a masterpiece
and that movie was definately a piece of dog shit

shit like this is why Ba and OE be going hard as they do
its blatant at this point

too many double standards

ill wait till i see it and be back with my assessment
based on bwood, Ba, and Frank's reviews my expectations are low
but im not buying that 13% thats something else

197. "3.5/5...pacing problems...visuals amazing as usual...will sucked. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          


SPOILERS


Negatives...

the ursa - the antagonist - didn't have enough build-up. instead of V.O., i wish they had explained it through action, showing how deadly it can be through training exercises or footage of training excercises, where it kills some muhfuckas. would loved to see more of how it hunt so efficiently. woulda made a much more menacing villain. and the look of the creature wasn't ground-breaking. looked like an alien derivative.

SLOW...this had some great action sequences and i wish they were more condensed and less spaced out...woulda added to the urgency of jaden's mission.

will sucked. he just did. i know what he was going for. it didn't work.


Positives...


the look and feel of "the future" is amazing. orginal and fully realized vision by night dogg. like i said i expect people to steal from this film's look. from the architecture to the wardrobe, the designs look like some shit human beings developed organically, by way of necessity and increasing efficiency. smart suits are hot fiya. combat weapon is hot fiya.

i though jaden was pretty good. the pivotal scene where he confronts his pops about their differences...he pulled that off very well.

night dogg's handling of the crash was incredible. the psychics were realistic, if not perfect.


in summary: anyone saying this shit is cringe-worthy and night dogg shouldn't be allowed to direct anymore is a flat out hater. i can't say it any plainer.

Jaden was alright, but yea that was the only scene I felt anything for his character besides the scene with the poison leech.

Your straw man attempts would be an even bigger embarrassment if it weren't so typical. I couldn't care less about Depp.

Don't care since I said nothin bout budget

>You said Daniel Day Lewis LOL LOL LOL LOL

I said that w/ no reference to your question above since I don't care & to make you less mad so you'd feel better bout your Big wiLLy attachment. Sorry you can't understand sarcasm & sorry it didn't work.

>I'm saying Depp cuz he got a BIG BUDGET MOVIE coming
>out...he look like a DAMN FOOL in that shit...and its
>gonna flop

Hey that's great! I don't think he or it looks that good either. Don't care if it flops cause I don't care about Depp either. Obviously you do since it'll make you feel better bout takin your L's here. Guess you gotta find those small victories somewhere.

>Its a RELEVANT example

To your own question I don't care about. Congrats!

>You don't have any

Exactly! Cause I don't care & I aint takin the bait from no straw man!

....you just making shit UP

I stated my opinion that Will has been an inconsistent actor his whole career. He's great in the Bad Boys flicks. He's great in MIB. He's awful in Ali, I-Robot & Bags said he sucked in this latest as well. He's inconsistent in other flicks like Enemy of the State by overacting a lot. Much like you're doing here.

Now if you wanna argue this above? Cool. It's still a matter of opinion & personal preference so I aint gonna go back & forth w/ you on it as it's pointless. Neither one of us are gonna change the other's opinion.

If you'd rather keep havin that awesome argument w/ yourself over budgets & Depp that's cool too. Not my concern.

Box Office: Uh-Oh! ‘Now You See Me’ Tops ‘After Earth’ Thursday Night

In a surprising development, Summit’s “Now You See Me” earned $1.5 million Thursday night at the U.S. box office, beating director M. Night Shyamalan and Sony’s $1 million launch for “After Earth.”

“Now You See Me,” which cost nearly $75 million compared to “After Earth’s” estimated $130 million budget, opened at 7 p.m. Thursday night, while the Will Smith-Jaden Smith actioner bowed at 9 p.m.

Still, the numbers are a troubling sign for Sony and Shyamalan, who has been all but M.I.A. in the studio’s marketing campaign. (editor's note: LOLOLOLLL!!!)

Starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith, “After Earth” is still expected to pull ahead of “Now You See Me” with a $35 million-plus opening.

“Now You See Me,” directed by Louis Leterrier, is on track for a $20 million debut.

Last weekend’s B.O. champ, “Fast and Furious 6,” will likely stay at No. 1 in its second weekend with an estimated $50 million over three days. Previous “Fast” movies have dropped sharply in their second weekends, but the strong opening for the sixth edition shows that the drop may be less than other editions.

In response to Reply # 221


  

          

$35 million feels really low for a Will Smith sci-fi action summer movie.

but it's hard to gauge with such lowered expectations all the way around.

i would be shocked if this didn't perform well overseas.

Not yet 3pm pacific time and we've already gone from "At absolute worst 225 domestic" or 175 million if it's not good to the studio is "clearly banking" on the overseas numbers?

It's looking at low to mid 20's right now, according to Deadline. That's a PTP flop.

HSX has had it finishing just over 100 for a while now, which I thought felt low. I thought people were not only underestimating Jaden's pull, but that this would get better reception than it did (it's certainly miles better than his last two, which is why the current reception is so strange).

Though as discussed in this post and others, the real place this flick would make its money has always been overseas. I just thought it'd outperform people's expectations here too.

Oh well.

All of the "vanity project" and "M. Night sucks" talk is weird. I didn't love it, but there's plenty to like here.

The good:

- it doesn't look like other sci-fi films. The spaceship stuff was terrific, as were a lot of the basic technology. Little details, like the breathing mask blinking on an LED screen when it was properly attached, were great. The multi-function weapon was a very nice touch.

- this is the least Will Smith role Smith has ever played, and I appreciated how measured his performance was. It's damn near impossible to make a man without any fear even remotely interesting, and only an actor like Smith could make it work as much as he did.

- Jaden, like in Karate Kid, is at his best when he's played the wide-eyed kid, unable to absorb it all, overwhelmed with emotion. For most of the movie, this is what he is.

- ROY FROM THE OFFICE SIGHTING. GLENN FROM 24 SIGHTING.

- the plot is the plot of a very basic father-son action-suspense movie that you might see in February or October. It's not unlike a Western in basic plot. Again, this will make some understandably feel the movie "doesn't do enough," but it's enjoyably different on an intellectual level.

- some of the visuals are flat-out great. The ash from the mountain. The swishing screen door after the landing.

- what I love most about Shyamalan's movies is how earnest they are. They absolutely don't wink at the audience. This makes them occasionally corny and occasionally dull, but in a world where irony reigns supreme, I appreciate it. There's some corniness here ("stand me up"), but the movie really isn't dull.

The bad:

- outside of the crash sequence, I didn't think the more kinetic scenes were shot too well. The flying suit sequence in particular should have been amazing, as similar sequences in Avatar and How To Train Your Dragon were-- here, it never delivers that sense of wonder. While the final battle is better, I too felt like Shyamalan wasn't as comfortable with the fast-moving stuff. Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs: these movies are meticulously paced, overall and within each scene. The faster stuff didn't work for me.

- there's a poison sequence that's pretty embarrassing, largely due to mediocre makeup.

- I understood the importance of the flashbacks, but I felt there were too many of them and they took me out of the present. We kind of got the point the first five or six times.

- some of the points I appreciated above, like the simplicity of the story and the difficulty of Will's character, still undoubtedly kept me from loving the film. I could've used more action, greater odds to face.

- Jaden as a badass doesn't really play yet. In one or two scenes, he has to be the "hero." Those didn't work as well for me. I also wish they hadn't dampened his charisma so much. The movie could've used some more humor-- its moments sprinkled within ("That sucked." "That is correct.") were welcome.

I still feel like Shyamalan has a great movie or more left in the tank. His world-building and his visuals are still great, and I think going for a simpler story is the right direction. I really want him to get back to the very slow Hitchcockian vibe of Sixth Sense/Unbreakable/Signs/parts of The Village and Lady in the Water. He slow builds so gracefully and creates one hell of a mood. A lot of that is present in After Earth, it's just difficult on a conceptual level to love.

I'd say it's worth matinee ticket price, especially if you're into sci-fi for the world building alone. Don't expect loads of action or the usual Smith charisma. This flick is going for something different.

EDIT: there's no way this movie deserves a 13%. Maybe not a fresh, but 13% is ridiculous.

It's as if everyone who wrote about it just arrived from a distant planet, observed this as its first movie, and came to the conclusion that Hollywood success is based on who you know and who you're related to.

I didn't like it as much as MZS, but most of his points are on the money, and he doesn't get hung up on "omg weather doesn't behave that way in a thousand years" and all the detail-oriented barbs they love tossing at Shyamalan flicks.

But who at Sony has big enough balls to tell Will Smith that they're not greenlighting anymore projects for him and Jada and their kids?

And if they do, Will will say "no problem," then skip across the way to Fox, or across town to Warner Bros./Universal/Paramount, all of whom would be more than happy to be in the Smith family business

Shit, while y'all bullshittin', *I'M* trying to be in the Smith family business

235. "The Big Willie Backlash is kicking in."
In response to Reply # 228


          

He can easily fix it but after four years off, this is looking like it'll be his second film in a row to fail to recoup its budget with its domestic box office,

The best thing Will's got going for him is that the Johnny backlash is a month away as I think a lot of people in the media are waiting for Lone Ranger to tank so they can have at him as well. (And his demanding 20 million to be in Black Mass is a nice appetizer for the wolves.)

Focus and The American Can might get his acting cred back up but I think he's going to need something beyond going back to the well (Hancock, Bad Boys, I, Robot) to restart his blockbuster status.

I'm talking about Will's future and you're bringing up Jaden's past box office hit as if its relevant.

258. "Wait...did Men in Black 3 really make SIX HUNDRED MILLY worldwide!?!?"
In response to Reply # 257


  

          


If that is true then that changes this entire discussion

LMAO @ a "trend"

Even I was hyping this as a "comeback"

If MIB 3 really made 600 million world wide, I want
return my agenda for the full amount

"Comeback" my ass

This just a random blip type of flop

Rather than indicative of a "trend"

Don't get me wrong, seems like the critics are really going
at Will Smith personally for this for reasons that are obvious
to me...seems to be a concerted effort to chip at dude's
dynasty

But Jaden did 360 mil with Karate Kid

Will did 600 mil with MIB3

I had NO IDEA those flicks were that profitable

Definitely the discussion changes

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Some of these reviews make points that I agree with but I gotta be honest and say most people had their minds made up before even walking into their local theaters. I know it's M Night and people are sick of giving him a chance but this was an enjoyable and entertaining movie. Sure, he could have expounded a little on the back story and what not but I was still into it once Jaden took off. This dude lost out the gate and it's rough that this will likely be his last big time flick.

Box Office: ‘After Earth’ Plummets to Mid-$20 Million Weekend, ‘Now You See Me’ Close Behind

UPDATE: M. Night Shyamalan and Sony’s “After Earth” is cratering at the domestic box office, with an estimated $10 million Friday and paltry $25 million-plus weekend, according to early estimates.

The $130 million film was expected to launch in the $35 million-$40 million range but those figures are long gone.

Summit/Lionsgate’s “Now You See Me” is trailing close behind with north of $20 million for the weekend, an impressive and somewhat surprising haul for the Jesse Eisenberg caper.

Universal’s “Fast & Furious 6,” meanwhile, will easily take the No. 1 position with an estimated $40 million in its second week of release.

************

In a surprising development, Summit’s “Now You See Me” earned $1.5 million Thursday night at the U.S. box office, beating director M. Night Shyamalan and Sony’s $1 million launch for “After Earth.”

“Now You See Me,” which cost nearly $75 million compared to “After Earth’s” estimated $130 million budget, opened at 7 p.m. Thursday night, while the Will Smith-Jaden Smith actioner bowed at 9 p.m.

Still, the numbers are a troubling sign for Sony and Shyamalan, who has been all but M.I.A. in the studio’s marketing campaign.

The M. Night hate was gonna kill even if it was good

And the trailers looked terrible IMO expect for the one full length trailer, which looked decent at best.


Antother problem is this ain't really a summer movie. This should've dropped in March, April, September or October. Oblivion was more a summer movie than this.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

First of all, LOLZ at releasing it during summer blockbuster time.

Yeah, Jaden did great with the Karate Kid remake, but he can't compare to the torrential downpour of summer hype and sequels...PARTICULARLY since those actionners like Iron Man are already family friendly.

If they had a few scenes with some generic hammy Will Smith jokey lines, etc, people would have believed they had a real blockbuster on their hands worth of their summer air conditioning movie dollar. But the trailers just made everything look boring with no sense of danger. It looked like a CGI National Geographic movie.
