Title: The Last Airbender will break records
Post by: Rohan on March 28, 2010, 02:26:55 PM
After watching the JAPANESE trailer and Kids Choice Awards TV spot I think THE LAST AIRBENDER will break some good records. I have this feeling. There will be people standing in lines and going crazy. I think I am going to have a costume on standing in the line - just kidding. Last time I wanted to paint my face so bad like JOKER when I was in the line at Century theatres for 2 hours for THE DARK KNIGHT. I still remember that night. People had to sit down on the floor. Some had their faces painted, some had JOKER shirts. I call that a movie going experience. I love it when fans go to movies with passion and I am one of them. Just to let you guys know a secret about me - I don't eat or drink during the movie in the theatre. Water is fine, but I don't eat at all. I go to enjoy the masterpiece that's playing in the big screen in front of me. Other secret I don't go to movie with a girl. I mean a DATE MOVIE I never done it and I think I will never do it. You know how girls are. Buy them. You have to get up. No. No. No. No - I want my movie experience.  I choose my dad cause he loves movies and he doesn't eat anything either.  ;D - and a buddy who is passionate and appreciate movies.

I don't want to digress to far off of the topic of THE LAST AIRBENDER - I am pretty sure I am going to see some AANGs and KATARAs in the line. I just can't wait guys.

Totally agree with you Rohan. That IS a good movie-going experience. Something to always remember. I love to see dedicated people and just one heck of an exciting night. The anticipation you feel with everyone else before the auditorium goes black is amazing. And when it does go black, that's when the chills start coming. I hope the experience that with TLA.

I love the feeling when I go to the movies. The atmoshphere changes naturally for me. I love the smell  of the popcorn even though I don't eat anything but I still love it.

You forgot that the movie is opening the same week as Eclipse.

I wouldn't hold my breath for any record breaking, but I do hope it does very well.

People are getting bored of Eclipse.

Besides, it seems like Eclipse and TLA will attract different demographics
Title: Re: The Last Airbender will break records
Post by: moonrise on May 18, 2010, 02:53:09 PM
not necessarily, there are ppl in my school who are twilight fans but enjoy airbender as well (although they keep it quiet, most them have seen it at one time or another)

anyway, when the airbender cartoon series started, it attracted a lot of kids who are pretty much mostly teenagers (hence, the twilight craze age)

i'm not trying to be all anti-optimistic - i'm just giving my point of view because i was in the kid category when the show started

i don't think you're being pessimistic. its only fair to assume eclipse will seriously take a hit on TLA. new moon broke records; theres no reason to think eclipse won't. the only question is how big of a chunk TLA can bite off eclipse?

i just think it's a bad idea releasing the same week. compared to other summers, this summer is pretty lackluster in terms of the number of tentpole movies coming out. there are plenty of other weekends to release. sucks for shyamalan.

Post by: Rohan on May 18, 2010, 08:28:28 PM
I don't why they are releasing this in the same week. In a way it's going to be fun to see which one will win. I am going for TLA no matter what. Not because its directed by M.Night Shyamalan, but because at least the story makes sense. I dont want to angry Twilight fans here, but sorry in my opinion twilight doesn't make sense. There are far better love stories some based on the facts and some made up.

4th of july is the biggest weekend for movies it as a great idea taking this slot also eclipse will have been out for 3 days by the time TLA hits
Title: Re: The Last Airbender will break records
Post by: Cleveland Heep on May 19, 2010, 11:21:09 AM
in three days, new moon made 142.8 million dollars. it's gonna take july 4th weekend. like i said, the only question is how much can TLA bite off that.

im guessing TLA walks out with 64 and a second place spot.
Title: Re: The Last Airbender will break records

If TLA gets good reviews (unlike M. Night's previous 2 films, and to a lesser degree The Village), I expect it'll have legs to carry it. New Moon made most of its money opening weekend. If memory serves, it dropped over 64% the following weekend -- that's a pretty steep drop. Word of mouth carries most films; if TLA gets good word of mouth, I expect it to make a lot of money. Will it break records? At this time I don't see it happening for various reasons, but lets not forget there's a 3D option, which will considerably increase its total gross.

Just want to note that the first two days of Eclipse's take will not count for the weekend. Airbender has a decent shot of coming close.

I wants to be a Kyoshi Warrior for the movie, but I have no costume making skills or money to get someone else to make it. :P So I'll be wearing the shirt my mum calls "the scary Aang shirt" (it's a black tee with Aang in the Avatar state on it. I got it on sale at Hot Topic for $5).

Title: Re: The Last Airbender will break records
Post by: Imalshen on June 18, 2010, 10:37:34 PM
Twilight is the worst trash ever written in my opinion. I only read the books because my friend suggested it and I hated them (though I like the location; I used to live in Washington). I also only saw the movie because a friend of mine was in it. They recast his character in the other movies so I refused point blank to see them.

I'm seeing Eclipse and Last Airbender, but I thought New Moon sucked, so I'm not expecting too much from Eclipse. I'm really looking forward to TLA though. I'm definitely going to the first showing the day it comes out.

Post by: Imalshen on June 20, 2010, 11:19:28 AM
Yeah, so far I've only seen one picture of Momo; doesn't look much different, but I really want to know if Momo will make the same "Momo noise" in the movies. lol I like imitating that sound. It's fun.

Post by: moonrise on June 21, 2010, 12:12:14 PM

Still, it made good money. And it's top in Australia now, right?

I don't know, this movie really didn't bother me like it did other people. It wasn't like, life changing awesome or anything, but I did have fun...it really was just the script...

I think the true reason I support it is that it got my friends into the fandom. They all went home and watched the show after seeing the movie. lol
