  1. Will Spidey hop Girls Trip on Wednesday? I expect GT to have a huge night tonight for cheap Tuesday, but GT seems to only play at night and Spidey seems to play all day, so could we see Spidey again make up the weekend by midweek (like he did on Apes)? I think I'd expect Girls Trip to hop back over the weekend, unless it doesn't show the legs people are expecting (I haven't see it and I don't call comedies after my disasters this summer, so I'm not gonna even guess on these legs til weekend 2:)...
  2. This, I will agree with - there is a bias against genre movies, at least in recent times...true comedies are almost never nominated for anything (heck, that category is a joke at the Golden Globes b/c it's all musicals and then dramas with a single comedic element or two, usually)...horror movies are almost never nominated...animateds are never nominated no matter how deserving...sci fi and fantasy have a tough go of it...forget supers - not sure we'll ever get a nominee there anymore...
  3. Only 38% drop for Spidey from last week...finally a very good drop...let those late legs start:)... Zeesoh - great posters think alike:)...
  4. 1st local has set its schedule for this Friday and added 1 screen for Atomic Blonde and 1 split screen for Emoji and dropped NO movies (so WW and Baby Driver get to continue with a full small screen for another week). Funny enough, Saturday is not yet for sale, so I think the theater wants to see how everything presells another few days before sticking to the following calls... To make room for the 2 new movies, Spidey (which had 2 screens) gave up its smallest screen and has kept the largest theater screen, dropping from 9 to 5 showings/day. Also, Apes gave up its second screen, but the one it gave up was its larger screen, so it now is only shown 5 times on the theater's smallest screens. Valerian gave up its larger screen to also only get a smallest screen. And the 2 new movies each get one of the larger screens (but not the largest, which Spidey keeps again)...
  5. You know, I'm gonna have very mixed emotions when we see 4 $300M+ movies this summer, matching the same 4 from my pre-summer call...but, at least 3 of them are good:)... Yes, since the whispers are that Emoji is "meh" at best, unless something changes and we see quality that doesn't seem to be coming, I don't think Emoji will have enough box office power to stop the next 6 weeks of DM3...
  6. Something I noticed that has started locally here just in July...Senior Mondays...they aren't QUITE as cheap as discount day, but they are a significant discount to push seniors to attend movies on one of the least attended days (and when they can have the theaters to themselves for their own meet-ups:)... I have to imagine Dunkirk benefits largely from senior audiences, so I would also expect Dunkirk to have a slightly more muted Tuesday, not just b/c of Imax:)...
  7. Or it could be cheap day in an area which has few theaters that do it... My one local, being one of the few cheap day observing theaters here, already has sold out 2 Girls' Trip showings, 1 DM3, 1 WW, and 1 Spidey (and 1 for a limited movie) for Tuesday...and it's midnight...it's more complete sellouts than it gets on weekends...
  8. Well, got the top 5 in order on another board, but needed to work on my accuracy (although nailed Valerian - but most did:)...I expect a few more Valerian-sized openers this week just with little buzz (and the same split screen set up for Emoji) Emoji Movie $23M Atomic Blonde $17M
  9. Box Office Casino

    Not that it matters, but I've currently got 125 at stake (2 Spidey bets for 50 and 25, 1 unpaid Apes bet for 25, and 1 Dunkirk bet for 25:)...
  10. I disagree...I think Cars 3 died b/c of Cars 2's influence and it already being pegged as just for aged 3-9s... I think next time DM comes out, it will die the same way, no matter how good it is b/c this movie has now pegged itself to solely aged 3-9...and it won't get anyone older back...
  11. Amen...there is a particular subplot with the oldest girl child that literally just goes for 3 scenes and falls off the map - it was like "what the heck was the point of that?:...the minions, as mentioned, don't even seem like they are in the same film - the tone, the plot, the visualization for them is just completely different...at least the little girls subplot wrapped up but it was so random and really could have been 100% cut from the film...nothing connected except for the 2 main characters plot...and that one wasn't that great... It was phoned in, lazy, and forced...a tv movie at its finest...and Despicable Me's franchise has always been way better than that, even when they were missing the mark...
  12. It's got all month...if Emoji movie is crap (and I'm actively hoping it isn't), DM3 has another SIX weeks of clear summer to just keep chugging along with parents who've got nothing better...Nut Job 2 is sub $20M and Leap is sub $10M...so either Emoji stops the train, or we could very well even see this creep towards $300M...which would be a travesty and would encourage a quality akin to TF5 for the 5th of this series...so PLEASE Emoji, be NOT sucktacular!!
  13. I hate that I called this large legged performance after its OW before I got to see it...I hate myself for knowing how the market works, even for not good films, when it comes to summer viewing and kids...too easy to book this as the "it film" for groups b/c there's literally nothing else to see... I hate studios for not giving us something better for the kids this summer...I hate them for stuffing last year with so many epic animateds and leaving this year with crap...
  14. So, on MT, DM3 is almost poised to hop Apes today...which is a bit of a surprise since DM3 is 2 weeks older and since MT tends to skew to older buyers...yes, it is family matinee weekdays (and Sunday is a big family day), but still:)...here's the current 5... Dunkirk 28.6 Girl's Trip 14.2 Spidey 12.9 (probably also getting a little family bump) Apes 9.6 DM3 9.4
  15. If it was better, it would be doing normal numbers...its quality is the only thing holding it down in this summer of emptiness... Look, I really enjoy Illumination movies...and this is their worst one...
