  1. No real need to wait for actuals this weekend:

    PETS: Juan +4, James +2 (and we’re both at least ten million too low).

    WEDDING DATES: Marco +4, Rob +2

  2. I probably should lose points for how off I was on the Pets film. BFG continues to have a big drop-off in its second week despite the good reviews; must be one of the biggest flops of the year.

  3. 103m for Pets, Juan is the closest and he’s still 19m off.

    It continues to amaze me how Illumination can produce films for so much less than Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks, etc.

    Pets cost 75m. In no universe does Dory look 125m better in terms of animation.

  4. Pixar in particular seems to thrive by endlessly tweaking/rewriting and they’re usually not afraid to kill a project entirely if something isn’t working (The Good Dinosaur being an exception).

    It certainly works for them, but it’s obviously expensive as hell. I certainly don’t think that things like Good Dinosaur, the Cars films, Monsters University, etc. really needed 200m budgets.
