Review - 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Is Rock 'N Roll Sci-Fi Brilliance - Forbes

Marvel Source countries, including Indonesia, must create jobs and other opportunities for people who now work in the black market. Low-level poachers are trying to buy milk for their kids, not get rich. And with better economic opportunities, they would leave the trade. Related: 7 ways to save the pangolin An action plan from the IUCN -- cleverly named "Scaling Up Pangolin Conservation" -- outlines other helpful steps that should be taken, including more pangolin science. "Our global strategy to halt the decline of the world's pangolins needs to be urgently implemented," Dan Challender, co-chair of the IUCN's pangolin group, said in a statement. "A vital first step is for the Chinese and Vietnamese governments to conduct an inventory of their pangolin scale stocks and make this publicly available to prove that wild-caught pangolins are no longer supplying the commercial trade." I'm saddened by this week's news about the size of the pangolin trade and that it now involves all eight species. But this is also an opportunity. I'm confident the more people know about the pangolin, the more they'll insist on its protection. They'll do things like start petitions asking Disney to cast a pangolin in an animated film.

Guardians is also opening in a few hundred more theaters. As for competition, Thor had two weekends to itself, but then faced a barrage of huge blockbusters starting on the third weekend, so it enjoyed one extra weekend to itself, which is important but wont make a major difference in the long run for this comparison. Both comparisons suggest final numbers for Guardians of the Galaxy in the $540+ million range. And its worth noting that, as Variety reports, Guardians of the Galaxy is on track to become t he top August pre-seller of all time at Fandango , where the film is topping the advance ticket sales for both Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, not to mention the previous August record-holder The Bourne Ultimatum . That, plus the extremely http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-disney-10-hour-20140725,0,3873407.story positive reviews , are good early signs. Now, will it enjoy added attendance because its so different from everything else in the marketplace, and because it really is so unique among Marvels film slate thus far? Or will that uniqueness work against it by turning off audiences who generally prefer the familiar world of the other Marvel films, resulting in performing below the above initial predicted box office range? Taking the latter first, an underperformance would probably require a major drop on the second weekend, combined with mixed audience reactions. If that happens, then it would need to suppress attendance by 10-percent or more to keep the film below the $500 million mark.
