Star Wars Episode VIII release date moved to Dec. 15, 2017.

Avatar 2 will premier the same month. Now that will be a fun box office battle to watch. :)

The move makes sense given the success SW 7 had in December. SW will also have Rogue One released this December, so they seem to be making December the new home for SW movies at least for the next two movies.

There is the issue of Avatar 2 coming out in Dec 2017... if it actually makes it by Dec 2017.

Stupid Kylo Ren Has the Wrong Darth Vader Helmet

That's pretty funny. :)

Still in about 1,600 theaters in the United States, per Mojo. It's not going to get much higher than it is now ($922M domestic, $2B worldwide).

It pulled in $4M over the weekend, and is pulling in over $300K on Mon-Wed. It's going to get to $930M in the US.

Worldwide it will get to $2.1B range.

It's also best to remember that Titanic made $1.843B on it's initial release. It was the 2012 re-release that pushed it up to $2.187B, another $300M worldwide.

We know SW7 will get a re-release at some point, possibly leading into SW9. That's going to push it past $1B in the US, and past Titanic worldwide.

SW9 is scheduled for 2019. So maybe a re-release on Labor Day weekend, with SW9 getting a brief re-release in early October. Those are times when nothing much is in the theaters, and it's easy to get a lot of screens for a movie that made so much money for folks.

Having read the spoiler report of folks who saw the filming of Luke & Rey vs Kylo & The Knights of Ren...

Of course it's early filming, dozens of things will change, who knows if it's some dream sequence or what not, and... well...

Holy shit it reads like wicked awesome. :)

Reshoots / new scenes for Rouge One. I tend to take the vibe of this piece more than some of the gloom and doom pieces:

They're pretty common, even for movies that are good. As the piece points out, SW7 had them as well.

Here's io9's review of Rogue One.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.
