  1. This looks like The Fifth Element sans the fun parts. It will probably do The Fifth Element's unadjusted number. No Multi Pass for this one. Out.
  2. They had preview shows on Thursday only at select locations. They did not have those in Waterloo, Iowa.
  3. I watched it Waterloo, Iowa Crossroads 10 theater on June 12, 1993. What a ride it was. The audience reaction was phenomenal. I watched it 11 times in the theater during its original run. The interesting part was it was a full house all 11 times. Most of my visits were in the weekend. I will always equate Jurassic Park to a sold out show. The lines for this movie even in the 4th and 5th weekends were spectacular. This was a pre-internet movie though AOL, Compuserve and Prodigy had started offering services at about the same time. The run was phenomenal to say the least and personally most memorable for me since it was my first experience of a $300m+ grosser in the US. During 1977 Star Wars and E.T., I used to live in India. In terms of crowds i have personally witnessed, only The Phantom Menace comes close. I watched it for the 12th time in the theater during its 3D rerelease.
  4. I loved the movie. It knocked a rampaging Jurassic Park out of first place over the 4th of July weekend. It had a superb run. I used to live in Iowa when this was released. 1993 summer was quite good.
  5. Thanks, The Dark Rock. This can all be avoided if everyone allows Rentrak to track the grosses.
  6. The indian box office sites rarely update Hollywood movie box office collections. It has to come from the Hollywood studios themselves for the most part.
  7. Thanks, Gavin Feng. That makes sense.
  8. Pretty interesting. Are they moving money from other movies to these movies?
  9. It is still showing. There is no limit on the run. Gravity completed one year run in Bangalore.
  10. That 55% for midnight sounds fishy. The 3.5% seems normal.
  11. 3.5% is nothing. The way it was reported, i thought his chain accounted for a very high share of the total.
