    Ironically every Illumination animated film outside of Despicable Me Franchise people have said would flop and then they all end up overperforming domestically and internationally. Just want to point that out.

    As someone who loves both the Howard and Jones interpretations of The Grinch (which both Karloff and Carrey do outstanding with what they are given), I actually have concerns over the Illumination film. However, they proved me wrong in my fears and worries when Sing and Pets were released, with the latter actually being my favorite solo film as of this point.

    However..how in the seven hells, do we have to talk about the movie's stability, when this is a thread oriented on a retail shop that changes every so-often?

    Because you started defending your argument with Twitter. So it escalated.

    I mean, I was only merely trying to demonstrate that if Universal didn't care; they wouldn't be marketing the film in the parks in that fashion. Shall we go on, discussing how it pertains to Feature Presentations? :oO:

    That's not "Deadline's" number, that's industry tracking. I actually totally think they are low-balling if anything.

    Although Sing opened in the 50's and legged out to mid 200's. Lorax (from Illumination) opened to 70's. Grinch is arguably a bigger property than either.

    I'm not sure why you care so much.

    I do believe it will revert back to JW once the ride opens.

    Gotta love these intelligent arguments with actual evidence to back them up being refuted with "But like, I don't think so actually." Makes for such great conversation.
