I think the concern is that the three films that came before it all earned over 1 billion dollars and this one may struggle to break even according so some analysts. It was the most expensive film in the series when you factor in that 70% of the film was reshot.

True. This week it did break even though. I just got back on here after a week, and boy are the trolls hard at work.

Anyway, thanks for the reply Gareth, always a pleasure.

Terrible release schedule. We said the moment it changed Directors that opening just after Deadpool 2 and Infinity War was a mistake especially with Incredibles 2 and Jurassic World 2 soon after. Dec. was much better. It was also just 5 months after TLJ which despite making a ton of money had fan backlash.

They also were very late with the first trailer so you did not have a long buildup. TFA had a teaser 1 year before it was released as an example.
