    Nice try. Basically neck and neck in the states. Compare international numbers though: $8,051,139 versus $149,806,677 in La La Land’s favor (Box Office Mojo).

    Therey’re talking about internatinal. And Hidden Figures is only out in 7 countreis where as La La La is playing in all countries.

    I haven’t looked for info saying whether or not Hidden Figures will open wider over there, but I doubt it will be after all of this time. In any case, this article is misleading because it ignores the entirety of each movie’s earnings. Specifying ‘domestic’ in the headline and the article would have rectified that. In addition, including the international takes of the movies would have completely taken this article out of the ‘fake news’ category.

    1) “I haven’t looked for info saying whether or not Hidden Figures will open wider over there, but I doubt it will be after all of this time.”

    1) You don’t know that, so you shouldn’t speculate.

    2) ” In any case, this article is misleading because it ignores the entirety of each movie’s earnings.”

    2) This article meant domestic, clearly. Domestic is still more important than foreign, despite many film being “saved” by foreign markets(and later only catered to foreign markets)

    3) “Specifying ‘domestic’ in the headline and the article would have rectified that. In addition, including the international takes of the movies would have completely taken this article out of the ‘fake news’ category.”

    3) See above. Also white lead movies are have better foreign distribution than black lead. If Hidden Figures was already in as many foreign theatres as La La Land ,who knows how much money it would have made.

    Lol, you criticize me for speculating but a heavy portion of your response is speculation. You can moderate yourself, but sorry, you don’t get the same benefit with me. If you don’t like what I say or how I say it, you can choose not to respond. If you choose to waste your time trying to regulate my speech, so be it.

    You don’t know how much it could have made, but it isn’t your job to know. The studios/distributors employ people to analyze the feasibility of releases. If you think you know better, maybe they should give you the job.

    The facts that the movie is heading into it’s 3rd month of release and that many movies are released to video services within about 4 months should tell us that it is very unlikely that much more revenue will be generated by international theaters.

    Another lol for saying that domestic is more important for La La Land in particular when its domestic revenue is hugely dwarfed by international. Please find me one executive from that studio/production company that backs your statement up.

    The statement “highest grossing” as it relates to Hidden Figures over La La Land is simply a lie. The fact that one would need to be aware of various markets and to seek out additional conflicting yet factual information about their true earnings disparity proves it.

    And speaking about ‘obvious’, how obvious was it to you from this article that La La Land more than doubled the revenue of Hidden Figures overall. This site and others that concealed that fact think that we shouldn’t know, obviously.
