Kenric
[0:00] Spoiler country is Johnny Horsley and today on her show top 25 grossing movie franchises of all time.

John
[0:14] Right this is a fun topic because people always are so curious what movies make the most money right now with black panther making a billion dollars and if anyone over a billion dollars already talked about the franchises are they serious.

Kenric
[0:26] Infinity War billion dollars in 11 days it’s crazy all the money.

John
[0:29] Yeah it means pretty quick to make all the money but there’s no fun list cuz it’s the top 25 franchises and then we also have you know the top movie in that franchise in the weather average what the average film is measurement is able to Springsteen.

Kenric
[0:44] That is nuts so we can go stop with start stop. We going to start with the 25 and just work our way down that list.

John
[0:52] Yeah I think we will that was not the bottom and just kind of go up you know how to find that way.
And what school is the very latest What’s called the very bottom one is some of these are franchises within franchises that make sense you know.

Kenric
[1:07] A franchise within a franchise.

John
[1:09] Rice franchise option.

Kenric
[1:11] Okay so could you say like are you saying like all the Marvel MCU movies would be a franchise but then within that would be Guardians of the Galaxy.

John
[1:20] Exactly yeah cuz it’s all right cuz it DMC was one big franchise than all sounds like no Iron Man catching like a little franchise inside okay so first class tour 2014 laces Captain America.

Kenric
[1:32] Best 24th and lizard 25th and.

John
[1:33] 4324 25th.

Kenric
[1:36] Okay okay so the counter America’s 25th franchise but it’s part of a bigger franchise as well which made show up later.

John
[1:45] Yeah what’s it in my is it in your project anyone heard of it.

Kenric
[1:49] Right okay that’s interesting.

John
[1:50] Nearest 2.2 billion dollars of the first three movies.

Kenric
[1:55] That’s quite a bit how much did Winter Soldier make and how much did I mean I would assume civil war with is the big winner of those.

John
[2:02] Yeah Civil War made 1.1 billion.

Kenric
[2:04] Oh my God so that means 1.1 billion was split between Winter Soldier and First Avenger.

John
[2:12] Yeah yeah yeah so and the average the average film in the franchise made 746 million dollars out of the three so I have a huge hit from Civil War cuz the Civil War was giant you know.

Kenric
[2:25] What Civil War was Avengers 2.5 yeah.

John
[2:27] It really was it really was number 24 on the list is Madagascar.

Kenric
[2:33] Oh that’s interesting I wouldn’t expect that one I didn’t even think of that as a franchise even though I guess it is a tad what dictates a franchise.

John
[2:39] 4 Malta Malta movies in NC.

Kenric
[2:43] To what would signify a franchise.

John
[2:45] Yeah Tunica franchise will sequel.

Kenric
[2:48] I think you should have at least three.

John
[2:49] What mean nothing on this list has less than 3 so I mean we can stay 34 movies out it’s it’s made 2.25 billion dollars.
The average Madagascar film makes as made 564 million dollars.

Kenric
[3:06] What do you think of Madagascar films.

John
[3:08] I like them I think they’re fun.

Kenric
[3:10] Fun the other friend right not bad.

John
[3:12] Yeah that’s the highest grossing one was Europe’s Most Wanted which was pretty funny what’s made 746 million dollars.

Kenric
[3:19] Got the last one.

John
[3:20] Yes I think so I don’t know probably I think it is I mean I don’t fucking.

Kenric
[3:27] I would even thought about it.

John
[3:28] Yeah it’s it’s a good franchise franchise in the background you don’t think of a guy say George is a great franchise that’s like oh there’s one in every Ice Age movie it’s funny I think they’re there their solid but I know there’s more Ice Age movies out.

Kenric
[3:42] Yeah yeah that’s another one too.

John
[3:44] What you might hear from Ice Age a litter on the road.

Kenric
[3:47] Don’t assume if Madagascar me I’d be shocked if I saved it.

John
[3:50] Oh I mean it does it at their house number 23 and this one is kind of shocking if it’s too slow to me and that Star Trek.

Kenric
[4:01] What is shocking is that little bit because the amount of movies wait is that the newer Star Trek or do they count all the Star Trek’s as the franchise.

John
[4:12] That’s it’s all 13 films yes.

Kenric
[4:14] That’s including the reboot it’s shocking cuz the amount of movies that there are.

John
[4:20] Yeah 13 movies and it’s number is on it snow 26 on the western 23rd in the list.

Kenric
[4:24] Yeah yeah you would think they would be in the top 10 just by the amount of movies that they have.

John
[4:29] Right I mean it that’s what it’s made 2.26 billion dollars the average doctor who makes 174 million dollars with the highest one being in the Darkness at 4 noon 467 million.

Kenric
[4:40] Star Wars is better yet what I said it that’s right.
I’m kidding you know what.

John
[4:48] The TV show all right.

Kenric
[4:48] Yeah yeah well I don’t really care it’s like whatever but it’s interesting that they only made that much because do they count are we counting video rentals.

John
[4:56] No this is just box office so I like Star Trek or Star Wars but I like them both another full fun they’re both different because you’re so different you know.

Kenric
[5:10] The only thing that they have the same is that they’re both in space.

John
[5:13] Bright and even that Star Wars isn’t a sci-fi movie franchise Star Wars is like a fantasy in space me just get sci-fi ask what’s really a fantasy movie.

Kenric
[5:21] Well Star Trek is much more I mean I hate to use the term but it’s true realistic.

John
[5:25] Right it really is earliest I mean I kind of why I like next generation is up so much is because I mean I kind of like the diplomacy aspect of it.

Kenric
[5:33] Crash on Wesley Crusher.

John
[5:35] Guamanian pretty sexy butt.

Kenric
[5:37] The Big Bang Theory Sheldon has a they do the Wesley crusher’s cuz I get you something you got a crush on Wesley Crusher.
No regrets Wesley.

John
[5:49] That’s not what it sounds like.
22 on the list isn’t another MCU movies franchise which is Iron Man.

Kenric
[5:58] Okay yeah that makes sense.

John
[6:00] Now before I tell you the amount all three of them has made Iron Man 3 by itself made 1.2 billion dollars right.

Kenric
[6:07] Wow okay that’s a lot I don’t know if that’s acceptable.

John
[6:10] That was it was it was a big movie cuz they were in Phase 2 and that’s when everything was getting huge for them to you right so the average Iron Man film makes it made $817. The franchise made 2.42 billion dollars.

Kenric
[6:25] Wow.

John
[6:26] So half of that is Iron Man 3.

Kenric
[6:28] Wow interesting.

John
[6:31] Yeah I know I am in three to me and I liked it I enjoyed it I think it was probably the weakest of the three movies.

Kenric
[6:36] I fall asleep to it every time I don’t think I’ve actually ever was able to cuz I didn’t see that in the theater and I saw a video and or on streaming or.

John
[6:47] Whatever somewhere somewhere.

Kenric
[6:48] Yeah and every time I’ve sat to watch it I just fell asleep.

John
[6:52] Is the weakest of the three my opinion but it made 1.2 billion Because by the time I came out it was like everybody’s going to see free movies now.
It does as a man that has had it has Pepper Potts becoming a superhero for a minute and it has I was the first glimpse of the Hulkbuster prototype armor came in.

Kenric
[7:09] You said it was like they do they do the whole devil in the bottle storyline in there.

John
[7:14] That I can honestly I think I don’t know that I’m three or two or three I don’t know.

Kenric
[7:19] It was supposed to be in any of those movies they did a terrible job of doing it I’m sorry.

John
[7:23] Right I mean I was only what they really was only like the first 10 minutes of the movie or commit to me that that dealt with that portion of it.

Kenric
[7:28] Iron Man 2 is probably my favorite out of the three because it introduces Black Widow.

John
[7:35] Right I didn’t see Iron Man 2 in theaters that’s all Iron Man 2 way later on DVD cuz I saw him in one of those my dad in the blood because it was was a great movie and then I went to go see that I just didn’t go see it and I saw it.
Probably two or three months later.

Kenric
[7:50] Robert Downey Junior’s portrayal of Tony Stark in that first left first Iron Man because he plays the same guy in in two and three.

John
[7:58] Right right.

Kenric
[7:59] It was I’m not going to use this term lightly all the time but it was she was Transcendent in that role.

John
[8:05] I was great it out that Rory to find his life and we to find superhero movies.

Kenric
[8:09] Yeah and I mean it just set the tone for the rest of the Marvel movies and it just I don’t know man I mean.
I know what like spoiler alert he does not die in The Avengers Infinity War even though Johnny through the whole time you thought you was going to die.
And when we were sitting there watching it I delete over too and I said I don’t want him to go away.
Baby Iron Man until he’s 99 years old and he dies from old age.
Yeah I don’t want Robert Downey jr. I mean I would be happy if that’s all that’s all he does for the rest of his life is Iron Man and you know fuck you if you wanted to other with me.

John
[8:49] Know your Iron Man motherfucker you do Iron Man.

Kenric
[8:51] It’s just hard to see him do be anything else it’s like oh my God so good.

John
[8:55] Whatever you does UCI maybe even when I saw Tropic Thunder it’s black Iron Man.

Kenric
[8:59] Oh my God he was so funny in that.

John
[9:02] Like seriously.

Kenric
[9:03] So inappropriately funny was awesome.

John
[9:07] I don’t think anybody else could have pulled off that role that well.

Kenric
[9:10] Oh God Maddie was perfect.

John
[9:12] I am sure I’m sure the agent was like don’t take this world don’t do this.

Kenric
[9:16] Never go full retard.

John
[9:18] Next Malaysian I’m actually very sad this one is the slow but it’s number 21 is Superman.

Kenric
[9:27] Yeah well I mean that kind of makes sense.

John
[9:30] I get it but it’s like the Supermans made 2.5 billion dollars of Iron Man to get there right.
I mean granted it took you know I ran to catch a murder 3 movies to make that much money in the Texas Med 8 movies to make that much money but still is still above it all right all that matters is that in number okay.

Kenric
[9:49] I think if Superman if I think of Richard Donner Superman came out today it would outperform a lot of other movies.

John
[9:57] Maybe I don’t I don’t think the tone of that movie though fits with the tone of modern movies very well I’m on I love that movie but it’s iffy it made with water special effects probably would do it hold.

Kenric
[10:09] Culture does really well.

John
[10:11] That elect a lot to bvs in Justice League.

Kenric
[10:14] Ha ha ha ha.

[10:17] Body blow body blow.

John
[10:19] Write the average Superman movie makes $399 and the highest one is bvs dawn of Justice at 873 million worldwide.

Kenric
[10:28] Okay so they adding BBS and all that internet.

John
[10:31] Add an alternative is so up next is a film series I know it’s probably good but I really don’t care about that’s mission impossible to know you like right you like that one.

Kenric
[10:44] I like them I don’t go actively out there to watch them I don’t think I’ve seen it I think the only one I saw in the theater I think was Ghost Protocol and that was because it was a work function where they rented out the whole theater we all went and I felt I think.

John
[10:54] Yeah yeah I saw that I thought 303 in theater that’s it and I was like it’s fun but I just I don’t care.

Kenric
[11:04] The reason I like them though is you Tom Cruise does like 99% of his all his own stunts.

John
[11:09] Oh yeah he’s crazy like that.

Kenric
[11:11] You know him hanging out the that the plane hold on to it to the the side of the plane that’s actually him doing it when they show him holding himself up between the two rocks he’s really doing that.

John
[11:22] I know what’s the score what’s the score.

Kenric
[11:23] It’s pretty cool I mean is much shit is Tom Cruise gets that guy he’s a fucking man dude and he.
The shit that means he’s better I think he’s better than people give me credit for.

John
[11:34] I don’t know if he has any again he was amazing in Tropic Thunder.

Kenric
[11:37] Yeah he was so good at Tropic Thunder everything goes back to.

John
[11:40] So those movies made 2.77 billion dollars or five of them the average with you made 540 million and the top one was Ghost Protocol at 69049 so.

Kenric
[11:53] Nice nice all the John Woo won in the theater which one was that who got second or third one.

John
[11:57] I don’t know yeah. Probably added number 19 on the list is a movie that is it movie franchise I watch the first one I was bored to tears and that’s the Hunger Games.

Kenric
[12:10] The Hunger Games I only watched the first I never watch the last one I just had no interest.

John
[12:17] I watch the first one I was like okay this movie is really boring and I watch this I started watching the second one. And they were in the forest and she was like I just don’t care,
and they can’t make it they can make it I mean like who I mean now if you’re listening and you love The Hunger Games more power to you if that’s cool I just I just couldn’t get into it.

Kenric
[12:35] Okay here’s a deal for me is that it’s not that they’re bad.
You know it it’s not like it’s not like some of those I love The Hunger Games that you’re going oh my God I can’t believe you love The Hunger Games like you wouldn’t they said I loved I love Twilight then you’re like oh my God okay so you’re a 14 year old girl in those came out.

John
[12:51] Funny say Twilight.

Kenric
[12:52] Yeah well that’s probably next but that’s okay.
You know that’s because my mind I said just they’re not it’s not a bad franchise it’s a cool story it’s all dystopian when those came out that was like the thing,
right we had a bunch of movies bunch of stories that are all kind of basically the same thing and it was cool and I love Jennifer Lawrence I think.

John
[13:13] Yeah this is great just great actress.

Kenric
[13:14] She’s great she cracks me up and she’s fun to watch and anytime she trips on stage hilarious.

John
[13:20] I know right.

Kenric
[13:21] You know is it that makes sense.

John
[13:23] It just it just wasn’t for me you know.

Kenric
[13:25] I’m actually surprised that I.

John
[13:26] Well they made four of them the total gross was 2.9 billion dollars the average one made 742 and then catching fire that was the biggest one at $865 box that’s great it just it wasn’t a franchise for me you know,
that’s fine that’s fine not I understand and I accept the not everything is made for me.

Kenric
[13:46] Rights but it should be right.

John
[13:48] I should paint it should be but I am okay with it not being right.

Kenric
[13:51] Yeah I don’t know where Sandman slim is on this list.

John
[13:54] NC Member One.

Kenric
[13:55] It should be God damn it.

John
[13:57] But it’s not it’s not easy is not out yet to go to waste on out yet.

Kenric
[14:00] I want to give Richard kadrey All the Monies.

John
[14:03] Right right so number 918 the list is Ice Age which I think is ice age to me is a solid franchise.

Kenric
[14:12] I mean.

John
[14:13] Now I’ll tell you a funny story right so it’s made 3.2 billion dollars there’s five films averages out at 653 Main.

Kenric
[14:24] Who is V films on that.

John
[14:25] Matt 643 billion dollars and a top grossing one is dawn of Dinosaurs 886 million dollars now,
I love the first Ice Age I love the second Ice Age and then dawn of the Dinosaurs came out and I was without knowing was wearing the movie,
I was so upset cuz I was like dinosaurs did not live in the Ice Age they did not live the same time as the mammoth and that’s what the fuck are they doing this is not this is this is so.

Kenric
[14:49] Buy a very long march.

John
[14:51] Yeah.
This is so historically inaccurate this is why I don’t want to watch this movie it’s so you know I mean I understand it’s cartoons for fun but it’s so inaccurate it’s like I don’t want kids to think that dinosaurs and mammals live together too that’s so wrong but then,
we saw it and,
they think they handled it very well cuz they end up being like like during some of the Earth with a dinosaur like in the middle of the Earth knows I got it I lost world type of thing and it was done really well and Simon Pegg play the character of Puck buck.
I am just so fucking funny.

Kenric
[15:22] What’s a puck the character in Land Before Time.

John
[15:26] Chucky.

Kenric
[15:28] Plucky that’s so funny why do we both either one of us know that.

John
[15:35] Because I’m friends amazing.
So next analyst is Kendrys all-time favorite franchise he just talked all the time off the air and the next Twilight just just love.

Kenric
[15:44] Duh sparkly vampires love them yeah cuz that’s all vampire should be nice vegetarian.

John
[15:46] Right she’s favorite thing right now I’ll tell you a funny story about Twilight to let me get the number to fix that the Twilight Saga made 3.3 billion fucking dollars for some reason.

Kenric
[15:58] I’m on Team Edward.

John
[15:59] Team Jacob man has texting Jacob five movies the average one made $669 and the biggest one was the last one Breaking Dawn Part 2 at 8:29 now.

Kenric
[16:11] Did teenage girls man loves that shit.

John
[16:13] Write a Twilight is interesting serious because if you read the books they’re all so terrible but.
The book psyche how did you watch the movies.

Kenric
[16:25] Yeah actually did I don’t know if I saw all of them.
You Know Tiffany was a big fan of those I mean she like them she did she read all the books you like that I think she’d like the books on what you love the book but she immature animal.
And when she like something she she could soon as it rather quickly and so she read all those books like within a month and then.
And as the movies came out I’m pretty sure that I know I watched at least three of them.

John
[16:52] See I watched the first two and I was done but it’s over right.

Kenric
[16:55] But I didn’t like intently watching them you don’t I mean they’re just on the TV and then that was it.

John
[17:00] Yeah I didn’t listen to Peter if you watch them on the TV and they came out but.

Kenric
[17:03] I took her to one of them in the theaters the opening night because she wanted to go and so I took her like at 11 at night.

John
[17:09] I’m sorry.
So when the books came out Kaylee was recommended to where we had a friend and she recommended oil of Tyler’s is great series and Kaylee is a big deal.
My wife if you ever meet her she’s a very smart girl she’s a very smart woman and she reads a lot of really good stuff but every now and then she likes to read or watch things that are just garbage and I say it like that because.

Kenric
[17:30] Yeah guilty pleasure.

John
[17:33] Right she’ll watch you should watch The Real Housewives show what she knows just garbage TV but it’s something she can just zone out with him not not think about right so,
when Twilight came out he’s like I know this isn’t great high-quality reading but I can just read it and zone out and just like and she doesn’t eat ice cream. She literally just sat on the couch and just read all day long.
Until she was done it was like Kaylee’s time to Eaton on reading what you just sold out of those books to finish them all make a week,
and then you know because she wear tomorrow I was like all right you know I want to go to talk to about this so I read them a lot I didn’t read them I listen to I got the audio books and all the audio books like I’m going to read these books.

Kenric
[18:12] Did I think that would be worse listening to under me would be worse or like if I could read them that I could just skim through it really quick I’ll read the first and last sentence of every paragraph.

John
[18:21] Audio books weren’t too bad cuz I love audio books into audio books I like this and I said sweet at one point fives it reads it faster to me.

Kenric
[18:28] Now you know we talked about this before and I listened like I think it was in the investing episode or it’s either one or two and we talked about it in your you know.
And we had the whole conversation that when you tell people you read Twilight you should say you’re ready when it came out your press Kaylee enough for her to actually want to marry you.

John
[18:44] It wouldn’t matter.

Kenric
[18:48] I know but the books came out in 2005.

John
[18:51] Right right but she bought him after last one came out we were married living in Poulsbo time.

Kenric
[18:54] Oh my Lord you didn’t get it then until the end of the conversation you still don’t get it you got to admit ready Twilight at least a minute to like you did it to impress somebody.

John
[19:04] Don’t give up don’t give a shower bed bugs don’t want to read this I want to talk to you about anyway.

[19:10] It just like the point I’m trying to get to you is in the movies they make the other day don’t touch on the biggest annoyance the books and that is when you read the books the books literally spend hundreds of pages of Bella Edward so pretty.
She’s so pretty.
Oh my God he’s so pretty like it’s like YouTube a serious reason a teenage girl’s diary about how pretty is vampires and how gorgeous he is for 3 more pages that’s what that’s those books and this Series has the.
I don’t know how to move the inside of a watch the last name to give a shit.
The books and I actually made a bunch of webcomics for my inanimate series about pot and Kettle talking about Twilight,
and I think I may I think I made like a total of eight different eight comic strips and then later on I did a couple more just talking about the end of Twilight cuz I was going to guess I was so like this is fucking dumb cuz,
it’ll last book in Breaking Dawn they build up his big fight between the vampires and speak War right.
And they get to the ending fight and it’s like and I can one guy jumps up and it knocked him down he dies and then we’re going to fight now I just kidding we’re good I just just just take your baby and then don’t kill nobody in and we’re all good man peace out dude.
You cannot spend 200 Pages building up a giant fight to go.

Kenric
[20:29] Yeah we’re good I remember the movies when they talked about the fact that newer vampires are stronger than older vampire seems like what that makes no sense.

John
[20:37] Do you want the youngbloods stronger than you.

Kenric
[20:41] Through a hundred years of written history out the window.

John
[20:44] Well I need the only vampires in the factors blood and teeth involved I mean they sparkle in the daylight they come on.

Kenric
[20:51] Yeah too much time on Twilight.

John
[20:54] Let’s move on next is an even better franchise Shrek.

Kenric
[20:58] I like Shrek that crap.

John
[21:00] I do too,
so Shrek made 3.5 billion V films average of 702 million and the highest grossing was Shrek 2 which is a phenomenal movie at 919 million.

Kenric
[21:13] Are they really making another one.

John
[21:14] Yeah make another one just I like this. They’re funny as hell there’s so much adult humor in Shrek it’s gray.

Kenric
[21:20] Long time since the 5th one right.

John
[21:23] Yeah yeah I mean I even know what this one is to be honest I don’t member.

Kenric
[21:26] Yeah that’s crazy it’s been a long time since the last one but I know the first one cracked me up today do the whole you don’t remember they should they show Lord Farquaad Tower.
It’s just this big tower phallic look at things like a look like he’s overcompensating for something.

John
[21:44] That’s all the fifth one was supposed to Boots the other kind of Puss in Boots in the end of Shrek franchise.

Kenric
[21:48] Yeah I saw that the theater and I totally the seats of your thing with me I fell asleep.

John
[21:55] You can’t stay awake for movies anymore.
But got to Shrek Shrek 2 Shrek the Third Shrek Forever After then put some boots and they making a 5th movie in the Shrek series and then they’re kind of Puss in Boots cuz it’s been up the Nets series or whatever you know but I mean I like all the Shrek movies.

Kenric
[22:13] Funny I like Mike Myers and I don’t know they’re funny.

John
[22:16] Rite Aid ever 15 we got Jurassic Park.

Kenric
[22:20] Wow now that you say that I would expect it to be in the top 10.

John
[22:24] Yeah it’s not it’s December 15th it’s a 3.6 billionaires for movies at the average movies made 922 million dollars with the highest one obviously be in Jurassic world at 1.6 billion dollar which I still haven’t I still haven’t seen that movie.

Kenric
[22:36] Wow Jurassic world in 1.6 billion I thought you were making fun of it like it was a flop I didn’t know it made that much money.

John
[22:45] I know it made a ton of money there was a thing that came out the same year as Guardians of the Galaxy and the Lego movies are Chris Pratt with Chris Pratt was in three the three highest grossing movies that year.

Kenric
[22:56] Oh my God what a douche.

John
[22:58] Well I mean I like this.

Kenric
[22:59] Now kidding that’s awesome. I love Christopher I was just kidding.

John
[23:02] I don’t want you to go I tried to watch it one time then I.

Kenric
[23:06] I like all the Jurassic movies I mean it’s your people running away from dinosaurs it’s fun.

John
[23:11] I love the first one and made I seen you right at the first second and third want your kind of not nearly as good I still enjoy them.

Kenric
[23:19] Yeah they’re fun I mean it’s there popcorn eating movies.

John
[23:22] There is one number 1414 is the Despicable Me franchise really it’s got four films it’s gross.

Kenric
[23:31] Four films already.

John
[23:32] 7 yep free public accounting there counting minions in that.

Kenric
[23:35] Still.

John
[23:37] At 3.7 billion average one bat 927 million with minions coming in a 1.1 billion dollars.

Kenric
[23:43] Richmond 1.1 billion.

John
[23:45] It did it fucking Deadman.

Kenric
[23:45] Wow I didn’t like I didn’t like it minions are funny and short spurts a whole movie with them it’s annoying.

John
[23:53] It was that movie was stupid and it was annoying and sick of me 3 was I don’t like that movie it’s it’s dumb.
It has Trey Parker playing Balthazar Bratt which is his stupid ass character in it mean.

Kenric
[24:08] The first one is amazing.

John
[24:10] Fantastic you know it’s great to it’s pretty good too and then three it just goes off the real sounds like this isn’t really funny anymore.

Kenric
[24:18] 3 is the one where he finds his brother right.

John
[24:20] Yeah yeah and Balthazar Bratt duck that I’ve been a bad boy guy comes in play.

Kenric
[24:25] Oh yeah yeah stupid me I don’t know I mean I didn’t do it put that way.

John
[24:31] Play my kids love it my kids love me tonight my kids love what they mean jacquin’s rock on iPad bad boy all the time so I mean my guy happy.

Kenric
[24:39] That’s kind of funny.

John
[24:42] All right number 13 the DC extended universe is at 13.

Kenric
[24:47] Wow okay.

John
[24:49] With 3.76 billion dollars so 60 million more than just there for me it’s at but it had five films at the average dceu movie has made 750 $3000000 about that’s a good.

Kenric
[25:02] Respectable man that is respectable.

John
[25:04] And the highest grossing one is is BBS with 870 Rebellion.

Kenric
[25:08] This is 2005 man that be people yeah people. Oh my God amazing how much.

John
[25:13] I mean still it’s that still good money but it’s just it’s not.

Kenric
[25:16] Definition of that that’s why you ain’t we have so many of them.

John
[25:19] Right that’s why he does not it’s not a Benders money but still good money but I mean I have a love-hate relationship with the dceu we all know there’s a cop it all the time and I I want to love them but I don’t love them.

Kenric
[25:29] You want them to blow it up but the part of me is like they blow it up there good there goes Margot Robbie as is and she a she’s awesome Margot Robbie and.

John
[25:40] They they can restart and keep it under they can keep the actors in 3 stuck on Startup.

Kenric
[25:43] That’s hard to do that though man.

John
[25:46] Yeah I know but then they can’t do it but I mean I just.

Kenric
[25:50] Lick it lick it still Salvage this if they just have somebody like they H I know they try to get the russos to come on and right now we’re sticking with marble but if they just get some people and give them you know they need a cabin Froggies what they need.

John
[26:04] Right did have somebody if they tried that with Zack Snyder but you can’t have the directory was also doing that then they never brought in Geoff Johns and different salsa to me so much other stuff it’s like we get somebody in there who was just going to oversee of the universe.

Kenric
[26:17] Where you going to get somebody that understands the date they need it they needed cherry pick somebody off of Marvel’s what they need to do that love.
Books that understands the characters and wants to bring what the characters represent to the screen cuz that’s what Marvel does really really well even when they change,
the backstory of the character the feeling in the spirit of the character is captured just fantastically.

John
[26:45] Writing it in the dceu you’ve got things like completely missing the ball and Superman.

Kenric
[26:50] Yeah well I mean it’s just they just have some weird stuff it’s everything just feels rushed because they’re they’re playing catch-up and that’s the that’s the problem you’re playing catch-up I mean Zack Snyder dude shoot a beautiful film that I mean.

John
[27:04] He shoots a beautiful film he said he should be the cinematographer.

Kenric
[27:06] Amazing.
You know and in the style ization and the way everything looks in the the costumes and everything look fantastic it’s just the storytelling is is subpar compared to what Marvel does.

John
[27:20] Very lacking yeah it’s very lacking speaking of Marvel Marvel Avengers which is a franchise than a franchise and it’s giving him up a little bit with the current movie that’s in play already at 1.2.

Kenric
[27:33] Right you think what you think and 11 days or 12 days or whatever.

John
[27:38] Right right so it’s currently as of today it’s made 400 billion dollars I have three films so this franchise actually has the highest per film average cuz there’s three of them at 400 it’s made.

Kenric
[27:51] 400 billion.

John
[27:51] Alien perfume for a billion it’s late.

Kenric
[27:57] You’re not it’s all good.

John
[27:58] It’s average Rose by 1.3 billion and as of right now the highest grossing film is The Avengers the first one at 1.5 billion but I have a sneaky suspicion that really soon it’s going to be in Infinity War I like all the building.

Kenric
[28:09] Yeah yeah yeah it’s just the heads All the Monies yeah yeah yeah.

John
[28:12] Yeah that’s that’s a great franchise I mean I love the first one second one’s all right if there was amazing.

Kenric
[28:19] Yeah that’s fun.

John
[28:20] Your other franchise is that really a franchise who’s could you just watch Avengers 1 if interested in registering a vehicle in the Uglies of story cuz I don’t think it makes sense if you just watch those three.

Kenric
[28:30] Without watching the other one the other movies that surrounded introduced those characters.

John
[28:34] Yeah can you can watch.

Kenric
[28:35] I don’t know man it’s hard to say that.
It’s hard because like everybody knows who Iron Man is even before the movies you know everybody knows who the Avengers are even before the movie take my mom to Who The Avengers are.
And you know it if she had to think about it she probably tell you it like right off the bat I don’t know anybody who’s in it you know but I bet if she sat next to thought about it should be able to say Captain America.
Get out of bed she would she would probably give you a correct character or whatever so I think you’d be all right I don’t know it’s what you’re saying though.

John
[29:07] Maybe maybe right right I mean it’s less of a franchise in Iron Man is because it really it’s there that’s like the ending movies to a bunch of other stuff I mean I guess it works.

Kenric
[29:18] Yeah it’s not a cohesive like tight story within itself.

John
[29:21] Yeah yeah they’re great movies though so alright number 11 on the.

Kenric
[29:26] Puny God.

John
[29:28] Right number 11 on the list is Transformers what we were talking about before we start recording.

Kenric
[29:32] Yeah yeah Transformers has that nostalgic feel for me and we had that whole conversation that I feel the first one probably made a ton of what was what was the most grossing.

John
[29:42] Highest person was Dark of the Moon at one point 1 billion.

Kenric
[29:45] That’s kind of weird I thought I’d be the first one because the first one for me was like oh my God is Transformers in it it’s a live-action Transformers I can’t believe I’m watching this I can’t believe I’m seeing this.

John
[29:55] It was the same thing to happen with Iron Man I think Simon through his eyes were swollen clit not the best movie because Dark of the Moon came out nose.

Kenric
[30:03] Is the build-up for it.

John
[30:04] The build-up to it and it wasn’t a time for everyone was going to the movies.

Kenric
[30:08] Yeah yeah that’s so weird.

John
[30:10] So I mean just more of the franchise made 4.3 billion dollars are six films the average one makes about 730 million dollars and dark blue with 1.12 billion mean 730 million dollar I mean no wonder they made 5 of them.

Kenric
[30:24] Yeah yeah yeah yeah it when you have Dark Side of the Moon make 1.12 billion dollars how do you not make another one.

John
[30:30] Right you’re going to keep making. Giving you money for him I mean I get it.

Kenric
[30:35] Oh you don’t wait you’re not saying is to is.
The more movies they make the CGI becomes cheaper because they already have all those renderings for all for all the models for those robots like the first one cost me an arm and a leg in the third one got some you know compared to lead not as much.

John
[30:53] Yeah and then end as technology gets better tosco down.

Kenric
[30:56] Yeah so not top 10 let’s do this.

John
[30:58] Top 10 right where the top 10 so number 10 is should be no surprise to anybody is Pirates of the Caribbean right it’s made 4.5 billion dollars out of five movies that’s an average of 904 million hours per movie that’s insane.

Kenric
[31:11] And those movies were a shock people were not expecting how popular they were.

John
[31:16] No Ivan I’m around until the 1st but I was blown away when I saw the crystal Black Pearl.

Kenric
[31:20] Epic that’s a hundred percent Johnny Depp.

John
[31:22] It was a hundred trying to Antoinette you know Orlando Bloom was getting there too and here. It was good but it was all I’ve been turned up.

Kenric
[31:26] Yeah but now yeah anybody could have been Orlando Bloom anybody could have been your nightly you know yeah nobody could have been.

John
[31:34] Right nobody to drink tap right he’s probably one of the most androgynous cosplays you see it a show cuz you never know if it’s a good woman or a man.

Kenric
[31:42] Oh man he was so good and it was just wasn’t there talk of him being nominated for an Oscar on that one.

John
[31:49] I’m not sure but that may I wouldn’t doubt it.

Kenric
[31:51] I think there was I think there was talk that he could eat could be up for an Academy Award for that one or maybe it was the second one.

John
[31:57] I think honestly I saw I’ve watched all I want to watch all of them now but like.

Kenric
[32:03] Obviously you didn’t but I’m just saying obviously he didn’t but.

John
[32:07] That right right I’ve watched all of them but honestly the last two,
I couldn’t say what they’re about or anything about him cuz they were just ate it felt very very generic to me and I don’t I don’t know if they fell off it towards the end there but I’m either going to keep making them because at night and why wouldn’t you.

Kenric
[32:23] Yeah yeah yeah totally.

John
[32:25] And the highest one is Dead Man’s Chest which is just over a billion.

Kenric
[32:29] Man crazy how much money does movies make.

John
[32:32] I know right I mean $900 average for Pirates of the Caribbean God damn make him to make him forever about at that point number 9 is little old Spider-Man.

Kenric
[32:44] Spoiler Spider-Man at that just holds just just makes my heart warm.

John
[32:48] Yeah it’s Spider-Man he had said he’s at six movies grossing a total of 4.8 billion dollars with the average of 807 million per movie with the highest one again the highest one being the best one of Spider-Man 3.
At 899.

Kenric
[33:03] That Sam Raimi Spider-Man 3.

John
[33:05] Yeah yeah well there was no Spider-Man 3 for for that.

Kenric
[33:09] Oh yeah that’s right well I’m just thinking you know you had wall cuz you can say is homecoming could be the third one of the reboots I’m I’m just in my head.

John
[33:18] It’s it’s right I mean it’s the 3rd reboot but still I mean six movies 3 reboot or three different Spider-Man but still it’s Spider-Man me all the Spider-Man.

Kenric
[33:27] New Spider-Man is that look everybody talks about that third one but you know what it follows closer to the Eddie Brock Venom storyline that we’re going to get with Ben.

John
[33:38] But I would much rather have that Venom than the Venom work.

Kenric
[33:41] Yeah yeah yeah I mean I don’t know yeah and I love Sam Raimi so yeah it’s hard not to laugh.

John
[33:47] Me too me too I mean Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man 2 is one of the most one of the ultimate comic book movies ever made in my opinion.

Kenric
[33:54] Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah that is like one of the best all-around superhero movies I mean it’s up there with Superman to me.

John
[34:01] Well I mean Alfred Molina is Doc Ock was amazing.

Kenric
[34:04] Yo yeah dude he was.

John
[34:06] Was was so great yeah and then I remember when they saw the first trailer for Spider-Man and he always with the with the one that’s really took down the Twin Towers in the back in 2000.
Doesn’t want him to and it was not first trailer seen him to swing in and then catch the helicopters and take twin towers and just the it just looking so cool of him swinging around and told McGuire little clips of my man this is going to be cool.

Kenric
[34:28] Yeah yeah that’s awesome.

John
[34:30] Yeah all right now just above Spider-Man where he told it where he deserves to be as Batman.

Kenric
[34:35] Oh my God you did not just say that that’s kind of a dick thing to say but okay.

John
[34:37] Yes I did let me let me let me tell you the numbers and then it is quickly becoming not a dick thing to say cuz I realize I said Spider-Man still should it still a tire because.

Kenric
[34:49] Now you said where he deserves to be.

John
[34:52] Right right just listen just listen to the numbers is it and you’re a dick.

Kenric
[34:55] Samantha Polly give me the numbers.

John
[35:01] Batman’s Batman’s made 4.9 billion dollars total worldwide but it took him 15 film to do it.

Kenric
[35:09] Wow 1515 they’re counting BBS are they counting Suicide Squad.

John
[35:18] I I know I don’t know I just fine.

Kenric
[35:19] Cuz I don’t think you can count Suicide Squad in that cuz he’s only in like 30 seconds of the movie Total.

John
[35:25] Pets in the park outside again here.

Kenric
[35:27] Maybe a little more babies in less than 5 minutes.

John
[35:30] Amazing it’s like nothing.

Kenric
[35:32] Yeah he’s less than 5 minutes.

John
[35:34] Let’s see where am I at Batman.
It’s the wrong one.

Kenric
[35:42] What would you say it’s the Burton films and then Schumacher’s Folly and then you have Christopher nights trilogy.
Right which The Dark Knight with you know is it the Dark Knight is it is it the Dark Knight with with Heath Ledger.

John
[36:00] Christian is the one it’s a dark night.

Kenric
[36:03] They said Chris Nolan who died say somebody else.

John
[36:05] Chris Owens director heat Heath Ledger is that at.

Kenric
[36:09] I know that but I did I thought I said somebody else not Chris Nolan what I was saying the director was going.

John
[36:14] Oh no no it’s yet.

Kenric
[36:16] Yeah but you have the so you have you have to from Burton is it to from Schumacher 3 from Schumacher.

John
[36:23] Soon so there’s 4 there’s Batman Batman Returns Batman Forever Batman Robin Batman Begins The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Rises that’s only 8 right there or 7 are there.

Kenric
[36:33] Right naughty that’s yet.

John
[36:37] No 44137.

Kenric
[36:40] Okay KO.

John
[36:41] And there is the Batman movie from the 60s that’s eight.

Kenric
[36:46] That was never in the theater was it that was a TV movie.

John
[36:48] Yeah it was and there is BBs how to get into 15 films I got to find this and for what the hell.

Kenric
[36:55] Well you got cartoons to you have you have the The Dark Knight Returns part deal 1 and 2.
You have Suicide Squad you have the cartoon one because that it you can’t count that as Batman because he’s in over half the movie.
You have you know Batman year One you have just quite a few cartoon movies to that you have the killing joke.

John
[37:18] Over here is the No 1 Series 3 the Burton Schumacher series is 5 of Catwoman Catwoman Catwoman Catwoman movie with Halle Berry is in that series the DC City versus 1gbps there’s Lego Batman.

Kenric
[37:28] Okay that’s how to make a Catwoman he’s not in it.

John
[37:33] Is a Batman is it in the Batman Universe accounting.

Kenric
[37:36] Oh okay that’s kind of cheesy but okay.

John
[37:38] So 3 and Nolan 5 and Batman Schumacher dceu one with Batman versus Batman v Superman.

Kenric
[37:44] The captain of the Country discount Suicide Squad.

John
[37:46] No they’re not they’re just counting BBs.

Kenric
[37:51] How do you count how do you count cat woman in not Suicide Squad.

John
[37:55] The breaker questions at work at 3:05 so at 6 at 9 at Lego Batman movie of 10 match of the Phantasm is 11.
DC animated movies which has the killing joke and Batman Harley Quinn which both had the actual releases is there’s two of them there and then there’s the TV shows that.
TV series has to which is the Batman the movie and then return of the Caped Crusaders 2016 which is the car to attach release so they’re County I mean that’s a lot to get the 15 or County to the 63 cartoon.

Kenric
[38:27] I like the dark out in the cartoons.

John
[38:29] Yeah but no one the Schumacher the DCU Lego Batman mask of the Phantasm Killing Joke Batman Harley Quinn Batman the movie Return.
All 15 that we still 15 Batman movies and they only average at 333 million a piece I know what they make and tucking Batman I mean.

Kenric
[38:49] Yeah but the ones that are taken seriously and you know like to Nolan’s in the in the Burton’s those are amazing.

John
[38:57] Yeah Abby Crystal called the Nolan series by themselves makes up 2.4 billion of.

Kenric
[39:03] Yeah well The Dark Knight was just ridiculously good.

John
[39:06] Yeah it kind of annoys me The Dark Knight Rises made more money cuz the highest grossing when it’s dark knight rises at 1.084 billion and the dark.

Kenric
[39:13] It was it was the whole lead up to it though.

John
[39:16] Yeah cuz the Dark Knight made 1.004 billion The Dark Knight to me it is a way better film.

Kenric
[39:21] Dude that’s I mean I hate to say because I love Marvel movies and I love Spider-Man but that that might be the there’s an argument to be made that that’s the greatest superhero movie ever put on film.

John
[39:33] Oh yeah it’s fantastic it’s one of my favorites to be honest.

Kenric
[39:35] Yeah I mean it’s I don’t know man it’s it’s yeah it’s amazing he’s let his performance you know you watch Tim Burton’s Batman now it feels really dated.

John
[39:46] It feels really corn.

Kenric
[39:47] Yeah and I don’t know that that will ever happen with Christopher Nolan with that second film.

John
[39:52] Yeah I mean Deport the first Batman movie Batman Returns like the first one when they feel the joke that’s the whole dance scene in the art thing with The Apprentice like this is it me is it was fun at I meant it’s not it’s not a bad scene what’s like this is really kind of kind of can.

Kenric
[40:07] Right I mean Jack Nicholson’s performance is still good but it.

John
[40:10] Rights of Raymond is awesome.

Kenric
[40:12] Scary is Heath Ledger.

John
[40:14] No he thought it was Captain that rule number 7 on the list ready X-Men.

Kenric
[40:21] X-Men I was wondering where they going to be at they had to be somewhere.

John
[40:25] Right right was Ben 10 movie so they’re going to be summer yeah 10 12 films yeah.

Kenric
[40:28] Verizon has it been 10 movies holy crap man I I mean I thought the third one was going to be the last one and then they would reboot the whole thing you know and so.

John
[40:37] Nope I’m going to be kinda kind of day but I kind of did I mean there’s three at their 6 in the main series there’s three Wolverine movies and there’s one Deadpool movie so far there’s 10 right now.

Kenric
[40:48] Elder County Deadpool.

John
[40:49] But it was in there.
Yeah so it’s made 404.998 billion dollars I went that far out because Batman is at 4.995 billion total so it’s really closely.

Kenric
[40:59] Yeah well yeah but now Deadpool 2 is coming out it’s going to just push that over the over.

John
[41:06] Right I mean the average feeling Braxton makes 499 million dollars Deadpool be in the Hyatt at 783 million dollars at the highest man.

Kenric
[41:12] Deadpool’s higher than wow that’s kind of cool it’s kind of just because of the rating and everything is kind of surprising.

John
[41:22] Yeah I mean it was it was fantastic film it’s actually that you know it’s that it’s the lowest the won’t that’s the movie with the lowest budget in the X-Men franchise and it made the most money.
Did anybody had you know an Indica 54 million or butter or some like that and it just made 783 million dollars right behind that one.
What is my favorite.

Kenric
[41:46] Oh man and they reset everything and they kind of and I love the guy that is the the young Xavier I thought he did such a great job.

John
[41:53] Oh James McAvoy he’s great yeah and then Logan is third with 6 in a 19 million and Logan it to me is just a fan on a movie 2.

Kenric
[42:01] I love Deadpool don’t get me ride you I love that movie it made me laugh but I told you when I came back from Logan you like how was it I’m like I think that’s the one dude then I don’t think you can get much better than that.

John
[42:12] Yeah it not Logan was a fan I saw it at a work event at the Cinerama and it was the iPic and it was amazing and I saw it again and I have the black and white Noir version of Watch.

Kenric
[42:26] Is it good.

John
[42:28] Dude it’s so good it’s amazing say movie just in black and white but it was it feels it literally feels different you know it does.

Kenric
[42:33] It’s just so funny because when that movie came out everybody said oh my God this thing would be amazing in black and white.

John
[42:38] So they did and they did it and it will write it is amazing about.

Kenric
[42:42] SSS tonic that movie was so fucking good man I mean.
It just trips me out and it pisses me off how good in X-Men movie can be is right there in Deadpool and in Logan in Logan just so Logan captures how the way I read X-Men comic book.
And what.

John
[43:01] What’s the weather in Wolverine.

Kenric
[43:03] Well yeah but I mean just yeah yeah it’s just it’s ridiculous and it’s just like why won’t you guys doing this and I know that’s like well you know date they set out and said we’re making it rated R.
Just the way they wrote it just made it’s like you always say you know just just make the movie and if it happens to get a radar then it happens to get a rated R and it kind of feels like even though they knew they could have rated R like that’s kind of what they did they just made the movie.
The best that it could be and fuck my time if you want to watch that this weekend I think I will.

John
[43:35] It’s so good yeah I’ve watched several times I love that movie cuz I love x-23 in that movie I love the lake.

Kenric
[43:40] How did you do how did you get the black and white ones you out digitally.

John
[43:43] Yeah I bought on VUDU and if you do an option came with the bottom.

Kenric
[43:47] Like sign in and borrow it.

John
[43:50] Oh hell yeah I’ll give you I’ll give you the login I’ll share with you I mean I totally won’t share my life with you but that’s not allowed I’ll just somehow let you borrow it some other way.

Kenric
[43:56] I’ll just come over and we’ll watch it.

John
[43:58] A perfect day to go all right number six is a franchise I’ve only seen one movie out of and everybody seems to love them and I just don’t get it and that’s the Fast and the Furious.

Kenric
[44:07] Yeah yeah they’re fun guilty pleasure.

John
[44:08] It’s made five different 5.1 billion Jason stuff.

Kenric
[44:15] Beautiful women beautiful cars he had only thing I don’t like about those movies is I like Vin Diesel and left things.
Like I like the Witch Hunter movie that he did which everybody I guess it didn’t do very well but I actually enjoyed that movie was a lot of fun but I don’t like Vin Diesel in those movies in the Fast & Furious because I don’t like characters that think they’re too cool for school.

John
[44:36] Right in that Maddox definitely him hitting his wife beater on to cool.

Kenric
[44:40] Yeah yeah yeah.

John
[44:41] I love to do some pictures in Pitch Black.

Kenric
[44:44] That was that was amazing and I like Paul ya Paul Walker’s grave.

John
[44:47] Paul Walker yeah it was I just didn’t really care to watch seven more of them you know.

Kenric
[44:56] Yeah they’ve changed they’ve told him worth now they’re they’re more like Mission Impossible.

John
[44:59] Oh and other toys for dogs now there’s eight films average bill make 641 million with the top one being Furious 7 at 1.5 billion.

Kenric
[45:08] It’s really James wan to that the director that guy is pretty good man.

Kenric
[45:17] It’s good you should check it out it’s a lot of fun.

John
[45:19] I will I will all right next to list is number 5 Round Top 5.

Kenric
[45:24] Okay let’s do this.

John
[45:25] I never V is JRR tolkien’s Middle-earth series.

Kenric
[45:29] Wow you know what I love those movies when they came out me and my brother have had marathons watching those completely forgot about him going through this list.

John
[45:37] Yeah right it’s like I mean I loved the first three right I want all of them theaters I watch all the extended I bought the extended editions watch them all at home.

Kenric
[45:47] Guy was amazing did a really good job on.

John
[45:49] But I’ll tell you this I haven’t watched any of The Hobbit films.

Kenric
[45:52] Show the House of Fun.

John
[45:53] I just I mean they came out I was like I don’t really.

Kenric
[45:57] They took too long.

John
[45:57] I don’t care I would.

Kenric
[45:59] And it should have been to move.

John
[46:00] Yeah this first this four of them.

Kenric
[46:02] Nose three and it should have been and really they could have done the whole thing in one movie and that’s what they should have done is the whole thing in.
The movie but how annoying is it that they build all the way up.
To get to smog and smog is like the best part of that whole book and then you have smog cuz like the last 5 minutes or 10 minutes of the mood first movie and then he dies in the first 5 minutes of the second movie and it’s just like what are you doing.

John
[46:28] What spiders are by the way I didn’t know that.

Kenric
[46:31] It’s like I’m sorry it’s been out for so long I think by now It spoilers don’t count.

John
[46:36] It’s it’s it’s.

Kenric
[46:38] Yeah but I mean dude it’s it’s so.
It’s it’s okay if you watch it back-to-back you know goes like okay you know but even then it’s like why and then you put.
That the that aren’t they the war Five Armies as the whole third movie and there’s not enough scene in the book to represent to.
To actually say we should have a third movie for this you’re you’re you’re you’re it felt like a money-grabbing in the worst way.

John
[47:06] Plumbing The Hobbit is not afraid of long book.

Kenric
[47:09] Exactly it should have been one book one movie that’s what I mean.

John
[47:11] Price with one movie and it don’t make any of them ultimately they would have been one of the free on one of the original ones right want to go to the Rings movies because those are huge but.

Kenric
[47:18] Well The Hobbit Hobbit is the first book that was the original book and then and it came out first and then they did then he did the other one.

John
[47:26] Alright by me the world rains is what the is the big famous one right here today was actually one bit older exactly one big both of his publisher made it was just putting the three books and each book is still really cute you know in The Hobbit wasn’t it’s not. That’s what I was saying.

Kenric
[47:38] Lot of backstory.

John
[47:40] Average movie made $849 with the highest being Return of the King of 1.12 billion.

Kenric
[47:46] Nothing I don’t like about those movies if they don’t end it just keeps going and you’re like doing the battles over everything’s done I don’t need this backstory of the ending of The Hobbit of them going back in and steal all yeah.
Just like me talking right now it’s not indie skip to the next one.

John
[48:02] Never ending.
Speaking never ending though I mean how to say that you’re quick about The Hobbit or that’s how about the Rings Return of the King I legit thought that movie ended 4 times at least 4 times.

Kenric
[48:12] Let’s go.

John
[48:14] It’s over in Margate.

Kenric
[48:17] Oh yeah yeah that’s what he what he was like sick or like they showing back and Riverdale ever they all come in and do you like other all together and then can I see the end,
oh oh nope now they got to get on the fucking boat and then you got to do the whole thing and fucking old old man freaking Bilbo and he got that’s the end.
Nope now you got to see Samwise.
And it was like dude get your freaking Encore done already put that in your in your freaking extended.

John
[48:50] Right exactly.

Kenric
[48:51] Don’t make me sit through that.

John
[48:53] Next on the list is as franchise that has fought his way on this list to the mail I said it before and I say that because it had 26 film franchise.

Kenric
[49:04] Oh my God 26 films in the franchise.

John
[49:08] No I’m not going to tell you what it is yet I’ll look at this when they’re from this because it’s interesting 26 films that have grossed 7 billion dollars which means those 26 films have batteries at 270 million a piece on average.

Kenric
[49:24] James Bond that’s the only way I can think that has that many films.

John
[49:30] Yeah either there’s some other ones I have have that many films by but it’s really 26 films at 270 million a piece in the highest won’t be in Skyfall what I was bored to tears why does Lawson I wash.

Kenric
[49:41] Solace board the hell out of me Quantum solace and I haven’t even watched.

John
[49:43] Which one that I didn’t I didn’t know it was all right but Skyfall was so boring.

Kenric
[49:49] I like Daniel Craig but I think it’s time for somebody new.

John
[49:50] I mean I like dinner time but I wish they would do more James Bond type move.

Kenric
[49:55] Honestly man I think they need to do like I think they need to get some fresh blood in there and they need to make him it sounds so.
Is this is not diversity for diversity sake it’s just that 26 films the white guy it’s it’s okay to do an Asian or a black guy or.

John
[50:12] Price change it up a little.

Kenric
[50:14] Even an Indian guy I mean not even in any I just you know or some guy from India because do the Indian population in England is ginormous so.

John
[50:23] I know.

Kenric
[50:24] It makes a lot of sense to have you know Peter Russell go over there and and BJ’s Bonne I’m just kidding you don’t want to have Peter Russell be your James Bond.
How you know what I mean there’s plenty of people that could be James Bond and it’s I think having somebody of color as at the it’s just feels like it’s about time to do it.

John
[50:42] Are there was talk about this when I was like hell yeah but it was.

Kenric
[50:47] Could do it we could do it he’s done a lot of rules that though that would be I like to see him do somebody.

John
[50:53] Yeah me too babe I would never talk to my teachers about doing that was he was fresh off of him for the first Thor.
I’ll head down a lot think I’m thinking it’s up yet so all right numbers 3 for the top 3 now now if you’re paying attention you’re probably know what the top three are and that’s fine but let’s go into it.
So number three is Harry Potter the Harry Potter franchise.

Kenric
[51:15] I knew he was going to be the top three I’m actually surprised is not I I kind of have a feeling the number one is but I thought it be number one or two.

John
[51:23] Nope he’s number his number 3 with 9 movies right and if the average movie is at 948 billion dollars.
With a total of 8.5 billion. The franchise with the highest one be in the last Harry Potter film at 1.3 billion.

Kenric
[51:40] Wow.

John
[51:41] Now this one’s going to go up because they’re making more movies and you know they’re making more fantastic Beast movies and other stuff it’s what we do.

Kenric
[51:47] I absolutely love the Harry Potter movies I read all the.

John
[51:50] I’ll meet you there.

Kenric
[51:51] I’ve watched all the movies I absolutely love them.

John
[51:57] I have the Stephen Fry read audio books the British version evolution of those gods that used to be we put on in the car we could go on drives the kids because the kids are just listen to it and we would just listen to Harry Potter all day long it was.

Kenric
[52:08] No that’s hilarious.

John
[52:09] I love Harry Potter anyways that’s number three fantastic franchise I’ve seen him almost.
I mean I love it when AMC or ABC Family freeform now does their Harry Potter weekends cuz just put on a free Farmers watch Harry Potter all weekend.

Kenric
[52:24] Yeah there you go.

John
[52:25] If you have TV I mean I don’t have TV anymore so no you do that anymore but I have I have mile I have them all on to do all right number to there’s only two big franchises laugh that people know about and number two is Star Wars.

Kenric
[52:36] Yep makes sense you know that I think I know I know when everyone is now that’s for sure.

John
[52:42] Yeah right so Star Wars is made 8.8 billion dollars.

Kenric
[52:46] Star Wars to be number one.

John
[52:48] Yeah was not trying to get rentals is not killing merchandise and shapes just this is just real light box.

Kenric
[52:53] What if it’s number one is who I think it is then would merchandising even still come into it because if you counter merchandising for this it’s got to be on the same same level.

John
[53:05] Well it depends on let’s just a minute okay I want I want to come back to that so.
Before we talk about that right so 8.84 billion Star Wars 10 movies at the 80 is $884 per movie.
With the highest one being the force awakens at just over 2 billion dollars.

Kenric
[53:27] Wow yeah that.

John
[53:28] That’s a lot of fucking money to Big North Shore one movie.
I’ll be surprised if the movie in the next franchise if it doesn’t break that I will break that so number one on the list of the worldwide gross now that I say it out loud I was with oh yeah that makes sense is the Marvel Cinematic you.

Kenric
[53:44] Yep oh my God.

John
[53:45] There’s 19 movies in this front in the franchise 19 as of right now.

Kenric
[53:49] Only those 19.

John
[53:50] And this number is just going to go up because they’re still to home or still in theaters.

Kenric
[53:53] Who owned by Disney.

John
[53:55] Yeah I talked to buy Disney take shit so the 19th films have grossed you currently a total of 16 billion dollars.

Kenric
[54:03] That’s double wet Star Wars that.

John
[54:06] Yeah that’s just about double number two and I mean you think about that that’s going to go up because Avengers Infinity War still in theaters right now black panther Throne theater.

Kenric
[54:15] Batman’s coming out.

John
[54:16] You’ve got Edmund coming out Captain Marvel coming out images for coming out so mean. Just going to keep going up to as well but I mean.

Kenric
[54:25] Never going to catch the MCU the only.

John
[54:27] No I mean it’s it’s it’s at 40th.

Kenric
[54:29] The only people that could potentially catch up to the MCU is the DC if they got there had it and they do it right but it’s going to take them to take him to leave 20 years.

John
[54:39] Matt exactly exactly.

Kenric
[54:40] Do it right now and they start now and they do it correctly now.

John
[54:44] What’s an average of 843 million dollars per pound.
And they have which is a little less than what Star Wars has Star Wars is 884 profound so it’s me it’s about 40 million last on average and the highest worth as of right now is The Avengers at 1.4 billion but that’s going to be change real soon to Infinity War at a lot higher.

Kenric
[55:02] That’s crazy.

John
[55:04] So that’s the top 25 top grossing movies of all time.

Kenric
[55:07] Top grossing franchises of all time.

John
[55:08] Great list sorry but you were thinking franchise all-time now let’s go battery? Merchandising now here.

Kenric
[55:14] Real quick break it goes out of my head.
It’s some of that list though is is kind of lame because you have Avengers or Captain America those roll into the MCU I mean it’s kind of it’s.
I get what you’re saying but at the same time it it it kind of cheats to make the MCU number one you going to mean.

John
[55:36] Yeah I get that I get it I get it but it’s also like I mean.

Kenric
[55:39] The same film you’re basically having Avengers twice and Captain America twice and you know home come.

John
[55:48] Right eye I get it we also a minute just it’s.
I could argue that shooting but honestly I don’t think it is because and only because the Captain America movies telestory write the Iron Man movies tell a story but those stories also are in a bigger story of the.

Kenric
[56:03] Yeah they’re part of the web.

John
[56:04] It’s like right the part of the big web so I mean the MCU is a is a big franchise in itself but.
Captain Mark is also a franchise by itself and so is Thor and so is Iron Man those are also a smaller franchise within a bigger franchise which is something that’s never really been done before it’s not love.

Kenric
[56:20] Right right right right right I get it I get it I get it.

John
[56:23] There’s no precedent for it yeah yeah so please just right I would love to come to you.

Kenric
[56:30] How do they do an amazing job with all their stuff so.

John
[56:32] Right back to question about merchandising real quick I think you said what account would would MC you still be in there I answer the question because what do you count for MCU merchandise you count everything that involves Capers are only things that are from.

Kenric
[56:46] Right right right.

John
[56:47] See you in the movies right.

Kenric
[56:48] The question to be had I thought the same thing is like whoa because it was if you got to count everything to do with Marvel then you got to go back all the way to,
1939 and move yourself forward and then that’s not really a fair way of looking for looking at it right.

John
[57:03] Right it’s not fair at all but if you do just babysitting the in the MCU it’s I mean.

Kenric
[57:07] And then look at toys and everything that’s come out because of those movies I think Star Wars would probably be way up there to Star Wars changed the industry.

John
[57:15] Star Wars changed a lot of things with it with that you know.

Kenric
[57:18] Yeah Kenner toys and everything.

John
[57:20] I made it get it made Kenner toys that made these it made in the streets and it made it made a whole new action figure line in it,
yeah they weren’t there so much Mommy the original truly made a lot of its money in total spent a lot of money on the morning the toys he’s in the mood.
Which is crazy I mean just just watch the Netflix show the toys that made us on Star Wars the old are in a ton of really cool information.
Yeah that’s our show today is a little some some information some numbers and bantering it was fun I just the phone this to go down.

Kenric
[57:52] Yeah it was just a fun thing to do we were like kind of racking my brain we want to talk about it and then we have that we started talking.
About movies were like why are we recording this.

John

    This list would have been much more interesting if the numbers had been adjusted for inflation. Star Wars would probably be #1, and James Bond would be much higher.

      Very valid point that may be worth coming back to on a future episode.

      We also run into the issue of re-releases adding to their “box office totals” as well, which is why Gone with the Wind is number one on the all time adjusted list, it’s been re-released for 70 years.

      When we touch on this topic again I’ll make sure to bring up the topic of adjusted amounts, because it will most certainly change things.
