As of this moment, 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Dark Phoenix Friday Tuesday, below the University and Lighting, has earned $ 3.87 million The Secret Pets Life 2 ($ 7.26 million) and Walt Disney's Aladdin ($ 4.7 million) for a five-day home cume $ 39.2 million. Thinking that we are talking about a franchise launched 19 years ago with a recorded recording (for non-sequential) $ 54 million, and that this film might not match the $ 299 million global quilt First time X-Men, this is a bad result for all involved. There is plenty to be seen about what went wrong, but one wrinkle is the same X-Men A film was continuously filmed in favor of other issues that were more important than Fox and / or Disney.

Simon Kinberg Dark Phoenix transferred from November 2, 2018 to February 14, 209 and Bryan Singer's the Bohemia rapezoid instead it became a film beginning de facto holiday seasons. In irony skew, the first one X-Men Freddie Mercury was much more debated by the director / discussed / dissolved, and won four Oscars and won $ 216 million at home and $ 900 million worldwide on a $ 52 million budget. But the second selected date for Dark Phoenix, the Presidential Day weekend could be viable (home Daredevil, Ghost Rider, The Swimming Pool and Black Panther) did not come to pass.

As I put it in November last and confirmed Hollywood Reporter last week, Disney and Fox moved Dark Phoenix to the start launched at the beginning of June so that James Cameron / Robert Rodriguez led Alita: Battle of Angel the hell could use a crowded Christmas season. Alita against someone Aquaman and Bumblebee, but he had an opportunity in February. This decision may have been to speed up James Cameron, who is currently working on those who are retired. Avatar sequences that Disney hopes to have Star WarsThe Christmas season is released from 2021 to 2017, but the story was not complete.

If you have to choose between keeping James Cameron happy and retaining Simon Kinberg, whose flagship property is about to get rebooted anyway, well, that's pretty easy call. Moreover, the choice between Alita and Dark Phoenix It was intended to give priority to the new franchise which could be beyond the final franchise title. We saw this, quite verbally, before back in 2017 when Lionsgate played music chairs with a dying franchise and a new prospective one.

Lionsgate moved Diverse Series: Excerpt from the late March launch (where the previous three were Diverse the films had come out in 2014, 2015 and 2016) until 9 June, 2017. Replacing it when the budget was big and promising Power Rangers Lionsgate and his friends hope that he would start a new franchise like (moderately spoken) Transformers, X-Men or Teenage Ninja Turtles. So the Built That Jigsaw House added the franchise that was dying until a release date in early June, not just purgatory but the slot is not desirable, so that the new franchise could be successful.

Fox and Disney

And, in both cases, the results were … mixed. The Diverse Series: Aliantiant it made it as bad ($ 179 million worldwide compared to $ 297 million for the final installment and $ 289 million for the first flick) that the fourth film in the Shailene Woodley series has never been created. The good surprised Power Rangers it was okay in North America ($ 40 million just finished $ 85 million) but attracted it abroad, earning only $ 143 million worldwide on a $ 100 million budget. Still, it is worthwhile to achieve the risk in that hope Power Rangers could break out.

Ditto with Fox's Alita: Battle of Angel. The film earned $ 85 million better than expected in North America and $ 405 million worldwide on a $ 170 million budget. This does not "guarantee a sequential number", but it is a much better hell than Valerian and the City of Thousand Planet ($ 217 million), Jupiter is going up ($ 185 million) and The Mortal Engines ($ 86 million). The following fantasy character has been pursued (earned by Oscar Rosa Salazar goal) which may justify the exploitation of other IP, especially if Avatar 2 Another dollar makes gazillion and Disney is trying to make mitzvah Cameron.

Dark Phoenix it became so big (it could not break $ 300 million worldwide) The New Mutants It is almost certainly now that it goes directly Hulu. As Disney bought Fox and had plans accordingly X-Men property, that was his interest Dark Phoenix not such a smash that would greatly contribute to this specific consumption and crew. That was the delay, the move from November to February and then the move from February to June, that meant Dark Phoenix opened after a little thing Captain Marvel Disney (launched by Disney in early March) was a happy / unhappy accident.

Even Disney's absence, Fox's interest was the priority given to the new sci-fi franchise produced and written by the man being delivered. Avatar movies over an unexpected sequence in a franchise on its final feet. In almost all possible cases, Alita was more important than Dark Phoenix. If I was in charge of Fox and / or Teach na Luiche, I would make the same decisions.

I would like to prioritize Aladdin in late May / early June. I want to move Alita: Battle of Angel and delay Dark Phoenix, to keep Cameron happy and because a new franchise was more valuable than a dying / dead one. As Vizier wise recently, if you are not the most important man in the room, you have nothing.
