  2. If you want a goofy movie with tons of violence epic made by James Gunn you'll love this one. He knocked it out the park. Very straight forward movie. Probably the best movie of DC's lineup this far. This film knows it's for a fun time and let's you know in your face. Need more R-rating Gunn movies. Also if you've never seen the other Suicide Squad, you don't really need to watch it for this one to make sense.

  3. All-righty Ladies, Gentlemen, and Lokis, It has finally arrived. The cultural event that is going to heal this soul of this planet and SAVE CINEMA: LMFAO, I wish. Though if I don't get the trailer tonight, I will riot. Nah, it's time for: BLACK WIDOW Arriving eight years too late to really matter, and one and a half years behind schedule, Natasha Romanoff and her Russian Cohorts FINALLY get their big screen solo mission. That is actually an origin story for Yelena Belova. And is sandwiched between th

  4. A nice little BOT tidbit inbetween all the debates over Premier Access: we're now past 42 pages, which beats out the Sonic weekend thread back in February 2020 and is now the largest weekend thread we've had since New Year's Weekend 2019 at 58 pages. I don't think we'll get much further momentum to go above that, but it's good to know Papa Feige has brought us back to some of that old former glory.

  5. The prodigal daughter has returned. I am still not fully recovered from the closing of my theater chain. But I do think it's time to get back to tracking. Couple of notes: 1. We lost Cinemagic, which was the regional chain that owned 2 IMAX theaters + 7 Premium/Stadium theaters in Maine, NH, and Mass. Due to that, I'm going to track Falmouth Flagship in Maine and Regal Fox Run & RPX in Newington, NH. Since everyone's been forced migrate to those, I suspect I'm going to overindex until basically Eternals, probably until Spider-Man. 2. I found that pr

OD PS ahead of previews. I am thinking 16m prev/25m OD(400K MTC1)/24m Sat/19m Sunday is the lowest it can go at this point. It could go higher but let us wait and watch.

  7. I don't have 24-hour data yet (that will be later tonight or tomorrow morning) but it has already sold 7362 more tickets for Thursday in less than a day after only selling 5604 in a day and a half and it's running at 800 tickets/hr at this point. It will be double yesterday's 24-hr pace which is crazy big for a Monday bump. July 4 certainly had an effect yesterday but now it's back on track.

  8. Just back from seeing this and it is a blast. Hysterical. Busiest audience and cinema in general since god knows when. Great to have a sold out crowd laughing out loud. 5/5. (I’d give the 2016 film a 1/5, despite Margot being great in it). Won’t say which characters stole the show because that would be spoilers.

  9. This weekend will also show studios yet again that the only model that truly makes sense going forward is an exclusive theatrical window followed by a PVOD window and then finally release on their native streaming platform. There is not a single customer that will cancel their Disney+ subscription if they get Black Widow in 90 days instead of day and date. Give theaters at least 45 days, then go to PVOD 45 days and then to Disney+. Everyone wins.

  14. I think it is beyond decent. No other MCU movie has had to face a large amount of theaters still closed or operating at reduced capacity, day and date availability on a streaming platform, long delays and various other factors working against it. This opens at $125m+ if all the conditions are normal. Getting $90m this weekend is incredible.

  15. Looooots of the next nine months of so of programming will be about taking the L and moving on. Jungle Cruise did perfectly well given the circumstances. Older adults are going to be the last to go back to theaters-- I know many who are so used to streaming and/or so afraid of covid they don't see the point-- which means stuff like Green Knight and Stillwater will only be able to muster 2/3s of what they could've opened to normally. This forum is all about the big openers and numbers but that trend is going to hurt theaters as much as the tentpoles going day-and-date. Counterprogr

  16. Early afternoon update, JC is at 17504 tickets sold at MTC2. F9 was at 70452 at the same point. It has sold 5459 tickets since last night as opposed to F9 having sold 13335 in the same period (so pace is 0.408x F9). If it continues this pace, it will finish with around 39k tickets at MTC2, which gives 2.27 million in previews when compared with F9. Now F9 overperformed at MTC2, but my suspicion is that Jungle Cruise will overperform as well, which is why I'm using this comp.

  29. Everything in entertainment, especially in movies and film, centers around power when it comes to who calls the shots. The theatrical side of the studios had zero power once things shut down in March 2020 for COVID. It so happened to coincide right when Disney+ was hitting their stride after only a few months and HBOMax was starting (badly) and AT&T execs were desperate to make a splash. They are the ones who made the call to put everything on HBOMax day and date, not Warner Bros. theatrical or studio or producers or directors or actors side. They all hated th

  33. Again you're only associating Eternals with Shang Chi because you know they're both MCU films. If they weren't you'd have zero reason to associate them. Let's be honest. Yes they have action movie tropes. So what? Expecting a successful franchise to reinvent itself for the sake of of people who don't like the movies doesn't make much sense, does it? Based on your broad and patronizing description Hobbs and Shaw, Shazam, Aquaman, Hitman's Bodyguard, and Jumanji are all MCU films.

  41. I get in countries that haven't had the chance to vaccinate, this makes sense, but in the United States every single person 12+ has had the chance to be vaccinated. Delta variant might have breakthrough infections on the vaccinated, but the effects are either asymptomatic or very mild that resemble a common cold. People need to realize you can't protect the people unwilling to get vaccinated and shouldn't change anything for them at this point, and if the Delta variant runs wild in populations in the United States that are anti-vax, then so be it.
