    Alright, I've just seen it. That's a lot to process. Here are my first thoughts and this is from the perspective of a person who has never seen the mini-series and read the book (Was going to but realized I simply didn't have time before the showing).

    Some time ago, I thought I'd celebrate victory by digging up a lot of the truly negative predictions about WW's run (taken from this and the main thread). Purely in fun and tongue in cheek, of course -- I'm sure posts of mine would be there too. But given my free time lately, I think it would take me so long that this club would be lost in the mists of time before I finished. (maybe I'll do it anyway) But let it be said.... Everyone at BOT, after OW: O that we now had here But one ten thousand of those men in England That do no work to-day! Me: What's he that wishes so? My cousin, @Cochofles? No, my fair cousin; If we are mark'd to die, we are enow To do our club loss; and if to live, The fewer men, the greater share of honour. God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more. By Jove, I am not covetous for gold, Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost; It yearns me not if men my garments wear; Such outward things dwell not in my desires. But if it be a sin to covet honour, I am the most offending soul alive. No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from BOT. God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour As one man more methinks would share from me For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more! Rather proclaim it, @Chewy, through my host, That he which hath no stomach to this fight, Let him depart; his passport shall be made, And crowns for convoy put into his purse; We would not die in that man's company That fears his fellowship to die with us. This day is call'd the first weekend of June. He that outlives this day, and wins this Club, Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd, And rouse him at the name of Opening Weekend. He that shall see this day, and live old age, Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours, And say "To-morrow is June 5." Then will he open his browser and show his posts, And say "These words I wrote on the Fifth of June." Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot, But he'll remember, with advantages, What feats he did that day. Then shall our names, Familiar in his mouth as household words— Tele the Admin, @Stutterng baumer Denbrough and @GiantCALBears, @ChipMunky and @WrathOfHan, @iJackSparrow and @DamienRoc— Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red. This story shall the good man teach his son; And June after June shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered— We few, we happy few, we band of "sisters"; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my "sister"; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition; And gentlemen in BOT now OUT of the Club, Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not IN, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Opening Weekend.

    The bigger critics like the movie as well. It should end up in the 75% range or higher. Sales are massive already over 2 weeks out. This one is heading towards $180m with a possibility at $200m+ domestic. If the scores are high enough, the insane thought of a $100m weekend is at least no longer laughable. I am on the $70m+ opening weekend for sure right now to be safe, but think $80m is growing more likely by the day.

    In this 20 years I've been following box office, IT has to make the short list of most stunning performances I've witnessed. Good riddance, box office slump.

    I'm not saying this will hold up, but at the same time in the sales cycle It is outselling a couple movies that opened $100m+ There is no doubt that It is a monster. Pun intended.

    Me and @Spaghetti of 1000 Planets went to TIFF tonight and saw Five Fingers of Marseilles. I really hope it gets a distribution deal. It was outstanding. It had a little bit of spaghetti westerm, some Tarantino and some Unforgiven. All three of us loved it and we got to stick around for some Q&A and to meet the actors. Great night all around.

    If [any of] you are annoyed about some people hoping that mother! flops/happy about mother! flopping, but you acted gleeful and happy about The Mummy, Valerian, or the latest Trnsfrms, Pirates, or Cars underperforming...well, then you are a hypocrite. Whether the film is seen as a masterpiece or as a "piece of crap," there is nothing gained from the floppage of a movie that you are not interested in to begin with. Just don't watch the film; problem solved.

    Friend of mine whom I trust (he was the one who told me months beforehand that Wonder Woman was a straightforward origin story, Alien was more of Prometheus and Apes was very dark all of which I mentioned here early as well) got a chance to watch this today. He enjoyed it, said that there are some issues they can still fix but he came out of the movie happy. Said he would give it a 7.5/10 or so. I didn't ask him for plot spoilers and won't either. But he feels it will play well with audiences and be an entertaining time at the movies even if it isn't considered groundbreaking or anything.

    It's really not great to take all of this so personally. Like what you like; people who don't like the franchise aren't personally insulting you.

    Firstly, sorry for what I said. Sometimes I couldn't catch the language environment, and I didn't know what really happened. I have a bad temper, and I always do some rash things. I make an apology for the unpleasant and unreasonable memories. Secondly, I don't really know about marveldcfox or how your impressions about this person. But I do not like those words about wrong predictions, because it's not fair. I don't mean to blame someone, I just want to make this clear. I was struggling with myself when someone asked me how much this or that will earn, because that is a difficult question. The best CBO experts and trackers like Olive, firedeep and many of you are here, BOT. And none of us can accurately answer those kind of questions, let alone other persons. So we should show gentleness to all reasonable predictions, instead of dredging it up.

    Guys, IT has opened at $3m in Mexico. Let me repeat, IT had an OD of $3m. - It had the second biggest OD of year there. - It almost DOUBLED Annabelle: Creation's numbers. - IT is tracking to an OW around $14m (only behind F8). - IT may gross $30m in Mexico alone. HOLY FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://deadline.com/2017/09/stephen-king-it-home-again-box-office-1202163667/ Updated Saturday PM: With a strong hold from Friday to Saturday, Stephen King’s It is looking to pass $120M by the end of its three-day weekend, just as our tracking experts predicted earlier todday. Current estimates have the Andy Muschietti-directed horror film floating around $123.5M right now, down only 8% from last night. Today pulled in around $46.5M after Friday night’s $51M (which included that $13.5M preview).

    Me and @Spaghetti of 1000 Planets just chatted with @Rth TIFF in a bar in downtown Toronto and he said that as of around 6 p.m. Eastern it was tracking at around the same as the Friday number but without the previews so around 37 or 38 million. He also said that he's not sure if the hurricane is going to affect it that much and he also said that the late-night business could increase substantially. But as of right now 38 million is where it was headed before the evening shows.

    There was a guy who stared at me at Coffee Bean today for a long time. I thought he was high on drugs and was a little scared of him-I made sure he left way before I did. But now reading this post I realized maybe he was just into me.

    You aren't getting this. Justice League is going to get its theater count in November, but it won't get nearly the screen count it would have in a time like March or August. Think of theaters like a hotel. They have a set number of rooms In the slow times people can book 10 or even 20 rooms if they want. In the busy times everyone can still book the hotel, but they might only be able to get 2 rooms. Same thing with movie theaters. It doesn't matter if a 10 screen theater thinks Justice League is the best movie ever and they want to book it on 8 screens. The reality is they have many business clients that book and need rooms that time of year and 7 of the 10 screens are spoken for so they can only give up 3 screens no matter how much they like the movie. After a week, they have other valued clients needing screens so they can only give 1 screen to Justice League. If it was March, maybe only 5 of the 10 screens are spoken for and they don't give a shit about the clients in April so they can give Justice League 4 or 5 rooms as long as they want. This is how theaters work. This is how studios work. You might want to keep a movie on 4 screens in your theater, but Disney walks in the door and says that you are going to give one of those to Thor and another one to Coco and you agree, because if you don't then a month later you might only get 2 screens instead of 4 screens of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and they will walk down the block and give your competitor 5 screens instead of 3 screens because fuck you. Welcome to the movie business.

    We definitely hit a lull almost two years ago after a big shakeup in the company, but statistically speaking, you're wrong -- or you just haven't paid attention this year. Our new release accuracy has either remained flat or improved in 2017 compared to previous years. Not sure where you're getting your information from. Check your facts...er, sorry, "statistics". If you're talking about mother!, I've actually been told by people I trust that we may very well be on the high-ish end. We'll see. Either way, check your comments in the future, bud. You don't have to agree, but "fucking morons" is excessive given you clearly know my association with the site (not to imply that I "run" it, which I certainly don't). Our track record isn't as perfect as I'd like it to be because I set very high standards, but frankly, it's at least as good as any other outlet's.

    LOL! Just watch as Aquaman becomes the latest DC property to become a huge fan favorite for the GA. Goes to show that for the longest time WB was truly idiotic in not seeing the potential that their characters not named Superman or Batman had. Cannot wait to see what Wan does with Aquaman.

    Actually, I wish studios would do more re-releases, and not just this puny 600-800 theater shit. This is the perfect time to roll out some famous classics from the last 30 years.

    You know what a desperately bad weekend needs? LEGS. And with Summer pretty much over now........ SUMMER 2017 RECAP TIME Wonder Woman's legs: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2's legs: Spider-Man: Homecoming's legs: Dunkirk's WINGS: Despicable Me 3's legs: Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planet's legs: Alien: Covenant's legs: The reaction Tupac gave when he heard about All Eyez On Me's "legs":
  46. 13 points
    Guardians was a full month before. Aliens was 2 weeks earlier and had burned out by June 2nd. Pirates was down to 1 screen after the first week and Baywatch was a bomb. Mummy tanked. Megan Leavey tanked. It Comes At Night tanked. All Eyez was a 3 day movie. Rough Night tanked. Wonder Woman had a great run because it was well reviewed and the public loved it, but it took a whole lot of films tanking around it to run like it did. Nearly everything 3 weeks before and 3 weeks after performed like shit or was terribly reviewed. It didn't get real competition until Baby Driver and Spider-Man. Justice League won't have the same luxury.

    Given the opening compared to the budget, everything it makes going forward is icing on the cake. No such thing as a bad number for this movie now.
