The Hidden Meaning Behind Popular Video Transitions

Posted on by

first_img4. WipeHidden Symbolism: Continued ActionWipe example from Star WarsWhile all of the transitions on this list stand for a passage of time, a wipe implies continued action that is unresolved. A wipe works well in a film that is full of action and movement, which is why you’ll see it throughout films like Star Wars. A great example from modern film is Edgar Wright, who uses physical objects to wipe between scenes to control the pacing.You will typically find wipes in films with multiple storylines that are playing out in separate locations. A wipe implies tension between one shot and another. A wipe can also serve to juxtapose good and evil or light and dark. Typically the actions in Scene A of a wipe will affect the actions in Scene B and vice versa. While it does depend on the situation, a wipe can serve as a cliffhanger, implying to the audience that they will be returning to the scene once the parallel story has moved forward.This amazing roundup from realityoccasionally shows us a few of the wipes from the Star Wars film franchise.Do you need transitions for your project? We’ve got you covered with this pack of 200+ transitions and assets!What is your favorite type of editing transition? Share in the comments below. 3. Cross DissolveHidden Symbolism: Linked NarrativesDissolves have admittedly been on the decline over recent years. While you will find lots of instances of cross dissolves in classic cinema, modern filmmakers don’t tend to use them as often. A cross dissolve symbolizes a passage from one scene to the next. This could be a passage of time or simply a passage from exterior to interior. Cross dissolves symbolize overlapping ideas between scenes.The duration of a dissolve is directly related the the implied duration between clips. A quick dissolve might symbolize only a few minutes, but a long dissolve could symbolize years. It’s very rare for a film to use a quick one-second dissolve to symbolize a long passage of time.In the example above, we can see two scenes connected by a cross dissolve. From the dissolve, the audience can infer that the building seen in the second clip is the same building being designed in the first clip. A simple cut might have not drawn the same conclusion.This example from Citizen Kane highlights the symbolic change between these two scenes. There’s more to video transitions than simply moving between scenes. Let’s look at the reasons behind the cuts.In video editing, each cut and every transition holds a deeper meaning. Let’s take a look at the hidden narratives behind four of the most common video editing transitions.1. Fade to BlackHidden Symbolism: CompletionThis example of fade to black symbolizes implied action between happiness and sadness. A fade to black is the most dramatic transition found on this list. A fade to black is essentially a dissolve in or to black. In film, a fade to black is used symbolize completion, meaning a narrative thought is finished. On a practical level, this typically means fading to black at the end of a dramatic scene.A fade to black eases the audience’s emotions into the next scene or the end credits. A fade symbolizes a passage of time. It would be confusing to an audience if you were to fade to black and then fade up a scene that is chronologically no different than the scene before it.Fade to blacks imply action, depending on the clips before and after the transition. If you were to fade to black in a scene, it would imply that the narrative tension or emotions have transitioned to the next, even if they aren’t easily apparent in the next scene. In the example above, we first see a happy couple. Next, a girl looking over the balcony of her room. Despite not knowing anything else about this story, we can imply that she is reflecting on the happiness she experienced in the previous scene.2. Fade to WhiteHidden Symbolism: Ambiguity/AscensionGif from Jacob T. Swinney’s ‘Fade to White’ (seen below)Where a fade to black symbolizes completion, a fade to white does the exact opposite. A fade to white tells the audience that the hero’s journey isn’t quite over. Despite all of the visual information on screen telling you the action is completed, there is still something left. This is why you will often see a fade to white at the end of a dramatic film with an ambiguous ending.A fade to white gives the audience a perception of hope. Perhaps the hero did change in the end? Maybe the girl didn’t really die? A fade to white tells us that, despite a bleak or undesirable ending, a positive outcome was still accomplished.The example above from Black Swan is a symbol of hope or happiness. Nina, after becoming the dark swan she feared, has now transitioned into the heavenly realm which she fantasized about. The character, despite the forces surrounding her, has achieved the beautiful result she imagined. In a way, the fade to white is dissonant to her surroundings.In this fantastic video roundup from Jacob T. Swinney, we see quite a few popular examples of fade to white in popular film. In the description Jacob writes “fades to white are often used to express disorientation and euphoria, among many other similar sensations.”last_img read more

Champions League: Cristiano Ronaldo scores as Real Madrid beat AS Roma 2-0

Posted on by

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo scored his 12th Champions League goal of the season with a superb strike into the top corner as Real Madrid took a firm grip on their last-16 tie against AS Roma with a 2-0 first leg win on Wednesday.The record 10 times European champions took the game to Roma, but were frustrated in the first half as the hosts kept men behind the ball, while looking to catch Real out on the break.Ronaldo, however, ended their resistance just before the hour mark.He audaciously controlled a fine pass from Marcelo on the left edge of the box, before unleashing a powerful, curling shot that deflected off Alessandro Florenzi and looped over keeper Wojciech Szczesny into the net.The emphatic finish sparked a joyous celebration from the Portuguese who raced across to embrace coach Zinedine Zidane.”It was a great match by him and the rest (of the team),” Zidane said.”I’m happy (about the celebration) but above all because he scored,” added the Frenchman, who was a Champions League winner with Real as a player in 2002 but was making his competition debut as coach.”It’s been a very special day, we played well but it was a difficult match because they (Roma) played well.”Substitute Jese added the Spanish team’s second four minutes from fulltime with a solo run into the box and shot across the face of goal that flew inside the far post.Two minutes earlier, Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas came out sharply to save at the feet of Stephan El Shaarawy after one of Roma’s fast and dangerous counter-attacks.advertisementRonaldo might have had a second goal a quarter of an hour from the end but his header at the far post was just wide from James Rodriguez’s superb cross.Karim Benzema then saw his goalbound shot from another James cross hit Lucas Digne in the head.At the other end, Roma substitute Edin Dzeko hit the side-netting with a header and Real were relieved when the home side were not awarded a penalty after a tackle by Dani Carvajal on Florenzi.”It was our best performance of the season this evening against a top team,” Florenzi told Mediaset.”We’re bitter because we played really well and to see this score is not pleasing.”Real did not have a single shot on target in the first half, but twice had Raphael Varane to thank for coming to their rescue, as the centre back superbly intercepted a ball from Mohamed Salah to Diego Perotti, before blocking a shot by El Shaarawy.Zidane remains unbeaten since he took over from the sacked Rafa Benitez early last month and the coach was given enthusiastic backing from Real defender Sergio Ramos.”We’re all on the same wavelength as Zinedine Zidane, we’re very happy with him,” Ramos said.last_img read more

I’ll be back for my 20th Wimbledon, says Venus Williams

Posted on by

first_imgVenus Williams is planning to return to Wimbledon next year to make her 20th appearance confident in the belief that there is no such thing in life as impossible.The oldest woman in the draw at 36, Williams lost 6-4, 6-4 to Germany’s Angelique Kerber on Thursday but has enjoyed something of a renaissance in reaching her first grand slam semi-final since 2010.She returned to the world’s top 10 last year following a frustrating run of results since she revealed in 2011 that she had been diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, an auto-immune disease that leaves her short of energy.Asked whether she would return to Wimbledon next year, Williams told reporters: “I would love to, it’s all in the plans. If it’s different, I’ll be sure to let you know.”The American – who is still in the Wimbledon doubles competition with her sister Serena – said she felt she could continue to play for a long time.”In life there is no such thing as impossible, it’s always possible,” she added.”That’s what you feel as an athlete. Pretty much our job is to make the impossible happen every day. It’s like magic, you know. I like that.”The eighth seed felt she had given the semi-final against Kerber her best shot.”I ran into a better player, so next time,” she said.Fourth seed Kerber will face Serena in Saturday’s final and Venus plans to give her sister “a few pointers” about the German left-hander.”For the most part, she’s got to go out there and play the match she wants to play, not that I want her to play.”advertisementThere was some consolation for Venus when she and Serena beat Russian pair Elena Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova 7-6(1) 4-6 6-2 to book their place in the women’s doubles semi-finals.Venus said the tournament had been hugely important for the partnership with the Rio Olympics looming next month.”We’ve played so sporadically the last few years,” she said.”It’s not easy to come out and play one match, then not play for a year.”We’ve had a chance to build a little bit, starting in Rome, then the French, coming along here. As a team, our goal is to represent the States the best we can in Rio. It’s a big job, but we’re going to try to do it.”last_img read more

From another corner, PAOK found the second goal they were looking for in the 71st minute. Rodrigues’ corner was flicked on by Tzavellas, finding Crespo at the back post, with the Spaniard making no mistake to double PAOK’s lead. PAOK did not stop there and with 7 minutes remaining capped off a fantastic night with a third goal.

Mike Yurcich Is a Pretty Good Coordinator, But It Doesn’t Always Seem That Way

Posted on by

first_imgMonken: 7.0Dana: 6.9Yurcich: 5.9But it goes deeper than that I think. Yurcich has six games in which his teams have gained more than eight yards per play (including last Saturday). That’s pretty good, even 42 games into his career as the coordinator. Even when you make it a percentage. Monken had five in two years. Dana had two in one year. Yurcich is about on track with that.So his highs are as high. But his lows, well they are really, really low. I plotted every game of each coordinator’s tenure on this chart. This is yards per play for a given game.screen-shot-2016-09-20-at-9-08-36-amMonken and Dana always existed between five and nine yards per play with one game for each above nine. That’s a good slot to live in. You’re going to score a lot of points and win a lot of games when your offense averages between five and nine yards per game. The national average this season through three weeks, by the way, is 5.9. That will drop slightly over the final 10 weeks as fewer FCS games are sprinkled in. The national average last year at season’s end was 5.7.So you can see Yurcich hanging with those other two guys in terms of best games. He’s right there. And his middle games are pretty good too. But his bad games. Whooo boy. The CMU game this year was below five. So was the Ole Miss bowl game as well as the WVU and Texas games from last year. He had four (!) games in 2014 in which his teams averaged 4.1 yards per play or worse.Yurcich’s ceiling is just as high as Monk and Dana, but his floor is much lower, and I think that’s where a lot of the frustration comes in. You have to remember four other things when looking at these numbers though:Dana and Monken had Weeden for a year each. Yurcich had Daxx and J.W.Dana and Monken had NFL running backs — maybe they are better recruiters?OSU’s offensive philosophy has changed since those other two guys left … I would expect there to be a bit of dropoff no matter who Gundy brought in to run the showOSU’s offensive line was pretty clearly superior in 2011-2013 than now — maybe that’s coaching, maybe notIs Yurcich as good of a playcaller as Monk or Dana? Nobody thinks that. Both coaches parlayed the position into head coaching jobs at FBS schools. Their trajectories were towards spots like that. I’m not sure that’s something we can always expect that to happen [stares at Doug Meacham’s bio for 15 minutes, weeps].The criticism there of Yurcich is maybe a little heavy and definitely misinformed. Is he an elite playcaller? Probably not. But are you going to go get somebody who is that much better than him? I’m not so sure. Gundy clearly values continuity within his program, and Yurcich has provided that. And who knows how the rest of this season will play out.“Momentum is a big part of offensive play and football in general,” Yurcich said after his QB broke the school record for passing yards on Saturday. “Whenever you can put together some rhythm as an offense, it’s going to go better for you obviously. The sooner you can start that, the better. Momentum and confidence, all those things start.“One of the important keys is to focus on one play at a time because when you don’t have that momentum and when you’re not having that explosive start to be able to restart yourself is a key. You can’t always reflect on the past and you have to play one play at a time and focus on that play and make that play the only play that matters. So playing in the now and in the moment is a really important ingredient to that.”In the now and in the moment. It sure looked great for Yurcich last week. What about the next nine?If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! Oklahoma State averaged over eight yards a play on Saturday against a defense that coming into the game was top 30 in the country in yards per play allowed. Eight yards a play would rank No. 4 in the country overall behind Louisville, Miami and Texas Tech. And still I heard complaints.They’re one-dimensional!What about when they face great corners!Fire the OC!I’m convinced that last one is just a trope that is trotted out on any random poor play by any college football team’s offense. It doesn’t even really mean anything anymore. It’s like saying “we’re taking it one game at a time” or “he loves his family.” It just exists in the ether as a meaningless statement.Anyway, I have been thinking about Mike Yurcich a lot recently. Thinking about his offenses and what OSU is trying to accomplish. Wondering why he takes such a beating while his two predecessors — Dana Holgorsen and Todd Monken — are so beloved. I think I came up with a couple of answers.First, I looked at yards per play for all three coordinators. The results are pretty predictable.last_img read more

first_imgOxford destroy West Ham with four-goal thrashingby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham United have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup after suffering a shock 4-0 defeat to League One side Oxford United.The Hammers were dire as Oxford run riot at Kassam Stadium.Manuel Pellegrini made eight changes to the team that beat Manchester United last Sunday and was punished accordingly.Second-half goals from Elliott Moore, Matty Taylor, Tariqe Fosu and Shandon Baptiste gave the U’s a deserved victory.Speaking after the game, Pellegrini said: “We played against a team who played very well.”It’s easy to say that we played very badly, but I think Oxford did everything they needed to win this game here at home for them.”They played with a lot of motivation, with desire and we didn’t play well.”If you give them time and space all of them are good players. They scored four goals, they had other chances and I think we only created one in the first ten minutes of the game and one in the last minute.”In the second half we lost all the moments [which decided the match].”If you want to continue playing in all competitions you have to use your whole squad, and we played with [experienced] players. I repeat, Oxford made it tough and after that [we perhaps showed a] lack of belief that these games are always very difficult for the teams who are in the better league.”Of course for the fans who came to Wimbledon, and to Oxford today, it’s not the best way to answer them. Football is like this, unfortunately it was a very bad night for some players and we’ll try to recover in our next game in the Premier League.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Un investissement pour appuyer la tenue des Jeux de lAcadie en NouvelleÉcosse

Posted on by

first_imgLes athlètes qui participeront aux Jeux de l’Acadie de 2012 en Nouvelle-Écosse et les résidents de la Municipalité d’Argyle profiteront d’un investissement du gouvernement pour la construction d’un stade d’athlétisme à Tusket. Le ministère de la Santé et du Mieux-être alloue une somme de 120 000 $ provenant de son programme de développement d’installations récréatives pour contribuer à la construction d’un stade d’athlétisme de 450 000 $ à l’École secondaire de Par-en-Bas. Le stade sera le lieu central des Jeux. « Avoir obtenu les Jeux de l’Acadie en Nouvelle-Écosse est une réalisation importante pour la communauté acadienne, a déclaré le ministre des Affaires acadiennes, Graham Steele. Le gouvernement provincial est fier d’appuyer la construction d’un stade qui fera partie d’une célébration importante de la culture acadienne et qui constituera par la suite un souvenir durable pour les familles de la région. » Du 29 juin au 3 juillet 2012, les 33e Jeux de l’Acadie réuniront dans la Municipalité d’Argyle 1200 athlètes acadiens et francophones du Canada atlantique, qui s’affronteront dans huit sports.

Le nouveau stade accueillera les épreuves d’athlétisme des Jeux et favoriseront l’athlétisme dans la collectivité par la suite. Les Jeux de l’Acadie ont été mis sur pied en 1979 pour promouvoir l’accomplissement par le sport et la sensibilisation culturelle chez les jeunes Acadiens et francophones du Canada atlantique. En 2012, l’équipe de la Nouvelle-Écosse comptera 177 athlètes et 33 entraîneurs qui font de l’athlétisme dans le cadre des activités du Conseil scolaire acadien provincial.

Nova Scotias cap and trade needs targets to be effective committee told

Posted on by

first_imgHALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s proposed cap and trade regime must have declining emissions caps in order to be effective, the legislature’s law amendments committee was told Monday.Proposed amendments to the province’s Environment Act don’t set caps yet, for a system that is expected to begin in late 2018.“The caps must be declining and must represent a reduction in greenhouse gases when compared with the business as usual case here in Nova Scotia,” said Stephen Thomas of the Ecology Action Centre.The province has already met Canada’s target of a 30-per-cent reduction in emissions from 2005 levels by 2030.When it introduced the legislation last month, government officials said the goal would be to set declining greenhouse gas caps each year until 2022 that would correspond to projected emissions levels resulting from the federal government setting a carbon price that will rise to $50 a tonne by 2022.That price will be set at $10 a tonne beginning next year.“If we have caps that are set too high or that are not declining the system won’t be effective,” Thomas later told reporters.Halifax renewable energy consultant Daniel Roscoe of Roswall Inc. agreed — and said caps should be set over and above 2030 targets.“I think it is wise for us to continue to make improvements even if they are minor over time, and use a system like this so that our economy gets used to growth that is unhinged from emissions,” said Roscoe, who was the only industry representative at the hearing.The committee sent the bill back to the legislature, where it will now go through committee of the whole and third reading before becoming law.It rejected proposed amendments from the Affordable Energy Coalition on the money raised through the Green Fund to be established through the legislation. The fund would support climate change initiatives and innovations.The coalition asked that 20 per cent of the fund be used to support greenhouse gas reductions that directly benefit low- and moderate-income Nova Scotians, and that half the fund be used to assist low- and moderate-income households in offsetting the costs of the cap and trade program.Brian Gifford, the coalition’s chairman, told the committee that in order to do that, emission credits that are currently to be offered at no cost to industry through so-called allowances be auctioned off instead.“Our belief is the only thing that will actually be effective in terms of generating funds for the Green Fund and also for creating incentives for lowering greenhouse gas emissions is to actually auction off the allowances,” Gifford said.last_img read more

Manitoba child welfare agencies breaking law by ignoring relatives watchdog

Posted on by

first_imgThe Canadian PressWINNIPEG – The children’s advocate for Manitoba First Nations says some child-welfare agencies are breaking the law and discriminating against Indigenous family members. Cora Morgan says the agencies are ignoring capable relatives who could care for apprehended children and instead choose to place them in a stranger’s care. Morgan says a mother in labour at a hospital last week called her because Child and Family Services was waiting to take her baby boy. The parents are struggling with addiction and are enrolled in treatment. A great-aunt _ who is already an approved foster parent _ was ready to take the baby, but he was placed somewhere else, Morgan says. “It’s devastating enough to have your children taken … (but) there was hope for that family. They could live with it a bit better knowing that a family member was caring for their child,” the advocate said Tuesday. “A lot of parents don’t even meet the foster parents where their children are placed.” The law requires agencies that apprehend children to give priority to family members, but Morgan said that isn’t happening. She said one woman was told by social workers that there was no one suitable on her reserve to foster her child. They said the reserve “was no place for children.” The NDP government recently outlined a plan to formalize the practice of customary care in which a child at risk of apprehension is placed with a family member in their community. There are no repercussions for agencies who ignore the law and the principles of customary care, Morgan said. “There is nothing that reinforces that in any way. There is no way an agency is held accountable. There should be checks and balances in place, especially in the case of newborn babies.” Manitoba has one of the highest child apprehension rates in the country and officials seize an average of one newborn baby a day. The province has more than 10,000 kids in care. The vast majority are Indigenous. The province’s child-welfare system has come under sharp criticism for years, sometimes for being too quick to apprehend kids or for repeatedly returning them to abusive parents. Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross said the government can’t second-guess decisions made by front-line workers. “An apprehension is a last resort,” she said. “We know keeping a child within their family unit, as well as keeping them with their community, will have a better outcome. That has to be our priority.” Irvin-Ross couldn’t say what, if anything, the government can do to ensure child-welfare groups comply with the law. It’s up to individual agencies to properly assess a family’s situation, she said. Opposition critic Ian Wishart said that approach is an abdication of responsibility. His office often hears about children being placed in foster homes when there are other options, he said. With so many children in care, Wishart said, it’s incumbent upon Irvin-Ross to ensure the law is being followed. “She’s in charge,” he said. “She sets the policy guidelines for these workers. It’s a lack of leadership issue.”last_img read more

A diminished Godzilla still bests Rocketman Ma

Posted on by

NEW YORK — The latest iteration of the Godzilla franchise took over the top spot from “Aladdin” and roared louder than Elton John at the weekend box office, but it still left a notably smaller footprint on North American theatres than its city-wrecking predecessors.“Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment’s sequel to 2014’s “Godzilla,” was brought down to size by poor reviews and middling interest from moviegoers, selling $49 million in tickets, according to studio estimates Sunday.While still good enough for No. 1, that total was $10-15 million off industry expectations and close to half of the $93 million debut of the previous “Godzilla” movie.Still, the weekend, led by one of the most classic movie monsters, brought Hollywood’s summer season into full swing. Last week’s top film, Disney’s live-action, blue-Will Smith “Aladdin” remake, slid to second with $42 million in its second weekend. And a rush of newcomers, including the Elton John biopic “Rocketman” and the Octavia Spencer-led horror film “Ma,” swelled theatres with a variety of options.Dexter Fletcher’s fantastical Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” starring Taron Egerton, didn’t launch with the same bravado as last year’s Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” But it opened solidly in third with $25 million. The weekend’s most profitable release, by percentage, was likely the Blumhouse Production thriller “Ma,” which made $18.2 million against a $5 million budget.Even with a toothless “Godzilla,” the weekend was up drastically — 62 per cent, according to Comscore — from the same weekend last year, when the swiftly forgotten “Solo” was in its second weekend.Part of the appeal of giant monster films from a studio standpoint is their popularity in Asia. This “Godzilla” fared best in China, opening there with $70 million. It made $130 million internationally overall.But in Godzilla, some see a flagging franchise of unrealized potential. In its three recent blockbuster iterations going back to Gareth Edwards’ 1998 Sony release, none have drawn much praise from fans or critics. This latest one, directed by Michael Dougherty, has a 40 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.Warner Bros. is developing a face-off movie between Godzilla and King Kong, who was last featured in “Kong: Skull Island.” That 2017 release opened with $61 million and went on to make $566 million worldwide. Jeff Goldstein, distribution chief for Warner Bros., believes the $200-million budgeted “King of the Monsters” can keep drawing moviegoers to the studio’s ongoing monster franchises.“The avid fans of Godzilla came out Thursday and Friday,” said Goldstein. “The real key for us is how broadly can we expand over the next couple weeks? Can we hold on to an interest that’s wider than the regular Godzilla fans? I think we can.”In Godzilla’s shadow, counterprogramming thrived. Coming off its acclaimed premiere at the Cannes Film Festival , “Rocketman,” which Elton John executive produced, opened well if not spectacularly for Paramount Pictures. The R-rated biopic cost about $40 million to make.Aiming to capitalize on the British singer’s worldwide appeal, the stars of “Rocketman” have circled the globe ahead of release. It added $19.2 million internationally. In Russia, the film’s local distributor cut out scenes depicting homosexual activity and drug use. John and the filmmakers criticized the move as “a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in.”Though “Rocketman” shares much with “Bohemian Rhapsody” — including Fletcher, who helmed the Mercury film after Bryan Singer departed production — its makers have sought to distance it from last year’s Oscar-winning $900-million sensation.“That movie is a unicorn,” Egerton said in Cannes. “Our movie is a different animal.”“Ma,” fashioned by Blumhouse as the production company’s contemporary answer to “Misery,” reteams Spencer with “The Help” director Tate Taylor. Spencer’s first solo lead performance drew an especially diverse audience, 57 per cent of which was female.“The best news this weekend was for the industry itself,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore. “Even if the top movie didn’t earn $100 million, we had a big up weekend and we need more of those to get out of this deficit that we’ve been in since basically the beginning of the year.”The news, though, wasn’t good for “Booksmart,” the acclaimed teen comedy starring Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever. Amid its disappointing wide-release opening last weekend, director Olivia Wilde appealed on social media for fans to support a movie “made by and about women.” On its second weekend, “Booksmart” couldn’t turn it around, earning $3.3 million on 2,518 screens.Overseas, Cannes’ Palme d’Or winner “Parasite,” a social satire from Korean director Bong Joon-ho, opened with $24.6 million. That was driven largely by stellar sales in South Korea where Bong’s raucous thriller easily outpaced “Godzilla.”Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theatres, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.1. “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” $49 million ($130 million international).2. “Aladdin,” $42.3 million ($78.3 million international).3. “Rocketman,” $25 million ($19.2 million international).4. “Ma,” $18.3 million ($2.8 million international).5. “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum,” $11.1 million ($12.7 million international).6. “Avengers: Endgame,” $7.8 million ($8.6 million international).7. “Pokemon Detective Pikachu,” $6.7 million ($14.6 million international).8. “Booksmart,” $3.3 million.9. “Brightburn,” $2.3 million.10. “The Hustle,” $1.3 million.___Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theatres (excluding the U.S. and Canada), according to Comscore:1. “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” $130 million.2. “Aladdin,” $78.3 million.3. “Parasite,” $24.6 million.4. “Rocketman,” $19.2 million.5. “Doraemon: Nobita’s Chronicle Of The Moon Exploration,” $18.4 million.6. “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” $17.2 million.7. “Pokemon Detective Pikachu,” $14.6 million.8. “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum” $12.7 million.9. “Avengers: Endgame,” $8.6 million.10. “Happy Little Submarine: Space Pals,” $3.4 million.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPJake Coyle, The Associated Press read more
