    This.

    I'm not sure why they didn't learn this lesson on Alice Through the Looking Glass. Even though they both made a lot of money, neither the original Alice nor Maleficent seem to be particularly well-regarded in a long-term sense, and both of their sequels arrived after a long delay since the first one. The combination of those factors seem to have killed any appetite that might otherwise have existed for a sequel.

    I don't want to brag, but I've expected Maleficent 2 to seriously underperform for these reasons basically since it was announced, so I'm not quite sure why Disney didn't see it.

    Incidentally, both films in the Alice and Maleficent series share the same screenwriter, Linda Woolverton, who had a much more lasting impact for Disney with her scripts for the original Beauty and the Beast and Lion King back in the '90s. Maybe she should go back to writing more animation?

    Five of the Top 10 are Disney (six if you count the Marvel-produced Spider-Man film). They're likely to have two more by year's end with Frozen 2 and Star Wars 237.

    Not loving the Box Office Mojo redesign. What was a great independent site seems well on its way to being another feature locked behind IMDB Pro's pay wall.

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," anyone? The redesign is both terrible and pointless. Ugh.

    But if you click on the studio for additional bo info, it now asks you to join IMDb pro.

    Greedy corporate bullshit. :angry:

    Dan Murrell (who hosts the Charting with Dan videos every week for Fandom) has pointed out on their channel and on Twittter that it's not just an issue of Mojo taking some features behind a pay wall. Some of their previous functionality which he used to put together his show is apparently completely gone even if you subscribe, which makes no sense. Asking people to pay for content that was previously free would be greedy but would make sense. But asking people to pay for an inferior product which does not give you all the information that the free version used to give you seems counterintuitive. If you want to ask people to pay you, the best chance of getting them to do that would be to provide the highest-quality product with the most resources possible. Removing certain features altogether just seems pointless.

    Charting with Dan for this week, including a lot of information about what functionality is gone from Box Office Mojo. This is completely bonkers. If you don't normally watch this show,, but care about what Box Office Mojo has been doing, this is the one to watch.

    Looks like Maleficent 2 edged back to the #1 spot in the final numbers (from the-numbers.com):

    Yes, by only by $122,000. That's nuts.

    If Box Office Mojo were still at its full functionality, I bet you could find when the last time was that the top two were that close. Sadly, it's not, so I'm not going to bother to try to look this up

    Never mind the pay wall, because even if you were willing to pay it, the idiotic removal of functionality from Box Office Mojo creates a huge opportunity for other box office sites to step up in response to that. I'm glad to see The Numbers is attempting to do that.

    Yeah, I don't understand it either and I've been part of IMDbPro for several years.
