I'm actually more curious to find out who were the 9 people who voted for the panda.




I voted for Kung Fu Panda 2. :P And even on a Pixar forum, it's annoying how everyone assumes KPF 2 will be terrible. :(

GUYS, IS IT BAD THAT I'M LIKE, NOT EXCITED FOR EITHER OF THESE. AT ALL.

asdfghjkl; i don't even know. honestly, when i heard about cars 2 i was like fdsakjala;NO and when i hurt about kung fu panda 2 i was like, "uhm, well...that's nice." i /do/ like the original kfp more than the original cars, but really, i'm really & truly not looking forward to either and i have no. idea. why.

maybe once summer gets here and i don't have to worry about a million projects & junk i'll be excited. but for now, just. no.

i guess if i /had/ to vote now i'd vote for kung fu panda 2, just because the trailer for that one looks more promising and i wasn't a huge fan of the original cars. BUT SINCE I DON'T, i think i'm going to have to wait to vote.

i /am/ loving those retro posters, though.

^That's understandable. I mean, it is arguable that neither movie needs a sequel.

Just because Cars is getting more votes, doesn't mean everyone will think it's terrible. It seems most people on this forum are open to KFP 2, as well as Cars 2.

I don't think KFP2 will look terrible, I am sure it will have the typical humor of a dreamworks film,,, audiences around the world will love it because jokes will be, one more time, the hidden successful card for this flick,,,,
I am gonna be watching this one on opening weekend and at least I expect to see a descent story, however I've read that some movie websites have stated that Puss looks much better than KFP2,,,

looking at the latest numbers, it seems that Kung Fu Panda 2 is struggling at the Box Office, such a surprise, gotta see how it performs over Sunday and Monday, if the trend continues, at least Cars 2 would be able to knock out Panda in final grosses

SO I FINALLY VOTED. AFTER LIKE A MONTH.

voted for KFP2 because i'm legit excited to see it (i know it's already out, but i just don't have time atm.) & tbh at this point i'm more cautious-curious about cars 2 than excited.

as for which will be /bigger/, it's tough to call. panda seems to picking picking up at the box office and the original /seems/ to be more loved by critics/moviegoers (CARS FANS DON'T SHOOT ME PLZ), so the sequel was pretty much okay with people, but then again, pixar is pixar. people will go.

We have the numbers for opening weekend for KFP, and will see how it progresses for the next month. I can't wait to compare these numbers with Cars.

I'm so glad that you voted for the 'Away' team, IV. I'm inclined to agree with you, I think I still haven't voted because I can choose an option.

EJE: As I've said many times before, I'm very excited to see the ultimate showdown of the two studios in Australia. A Pixar film and a Dreamworks film released on the same day? I think this is unprecedented. And both in 3D formats (though Cars will also be available in IMAX). Who will win? :)

^ that is crazy,,, what are Disney and Dreamworks thinking about???

when is the exact release date TDIT??,, June 24??, if so I see dreamworks being mean, because as much as I love Cars, I have to realize that KFP2 will be bigger in overseas markets

that /is/ crazy.

i agree with bryanbmp. KFP2 will most likely do better overseas. as for /domestic/ grosses, it's hard to call. KFP2 is picking up (which makes me actually really happy tbh), but my prediction is cars 2, but hey, we've still got almost a month!

I'm totally going to see Panda 2 in the cinema though... while I will probably see Cars 2 on DVD later. Sorry, Cars fans!

It's just that a movie about animals (and they even included some of my favourite species!) interests me more than a movie about cars. D:

bryan: In China and Asian territories, maybe KFP will be the victor. But this is in Australia, a cosmopolitan country, which is harder to tell. Besides, I don't think Dreamworks is being mean on purpose, for all we know, maybe the Disney distributors did it on purpose, or Paramount (which distributes Dreamworks) did it, who knows? Or maybe it's all just a big pile of coincidence! :)

No worries, mate... I don't think Pixar or Dreamworks fans need to feel threatened. Why should we be? I'm sure there's more than enough of the winter vacation crowd to go around... personally, I'm very excited to see who will be the winner. It'll be the movie match of the century! :D
