  1. Okay, it's quiet now, so I will reopen things. But before we get back to things, I'm going to lay out to people here what I want to see in this thread and talk to a few people here who are exacerbating things. While I understand the importance of talking about buzz and why a film went wrong, things are going way too far here. It's getting to the point where it's clogging up the actual numbers and diverting into a real Monday Morning Quarterback...before the weekend has even started. No matter what the evidence is right now, we can only do educated guesses on what The Su

Anyway I have never seen Friday this bad this close to release. Saturday also looks fairly low and probably will have a small drop from Friday. I'll bring back the comps starting tomorrow.

  6. Much better. I am very happy. This seems to play well almost everywhere. Anyway I am back after a long day and just checked. Its definitely increasing today. Since it did 10.5m friday, a 10% increase would mean 11.55m. Let us see where it ends up. MTC1 148869/820252 1837689.84 4623 shows MTC2 - 136.5K(DBOX adjusted). 4319 shows (about 1.43m).

  9. I'm working at a theater this Summer, and a guy came in on a Monday night to buy seven tickets for him and his friends to see a late night showing of Snake Eyes in IMAX. Google said they had the 10:00 PM... But by the time he came for the tickets (and he did come early), the theater had already taken it off the schedule. The group settled for watching Black Widow instead. I thought the whole thing was tragic.

  16. I sincerely doubt Shang-Chi is the make or break movie for reasons I outlined in last weekend's thread. No Time to Die would be a much more appropriate fit for that criteria, but even then, studios won't keep delaying their films when we have vaccines widely available.

  17. LMAO! I understand that post-pandemic boxoffice isn't back to normal yet but 6.7M isn't "beheaded the boxoffice" even by pandemic standards, it's "got beheaded at the boxoffice" by any standard ever.

  18. The buzz is very very good. The hype looks to be next to non-existent. Usually buzz and hype go and in hand, but in this case there seems to be a remarkable divergence. And the film is running out of time for it to turn around.

  22. I am in the 20-30 range for now, mostly because Friday numbers are quite bad so I expect it to be very frontloaded, and with preview sales this low as well, it doesn't bode well.

The messaging for vaccinated people on Delta has been inconsistent to the point where not many are concerned by updated guidelines, and cases will likely start declining in

  24. If JC really goes to 35M here I would not consider that an easy bar for TSS whatsoever. Or an unassailable bar, by any means.

  25. Man this was so much fun, big smile on my face throughout. Wonderfully violent, funny, occasionally gross and disturbing. Full James Gunn and zany to the max. Doesn't miss out on the heart as well, great character work/dynamics and all the little sub-plots come together nicely. It's pretty straightforward plot wise but it keeps you on your toes with a couple of things. Looks pretty nice as well (seems like they added a thin layer of grain to some scenes like 'Nobody' to give it some texture), CGI was strong, solid action sequences. The film delivered where it should unlike some of

  26. I'm happy with anything over 40M, i think this is a good number all things considered. My dream numbers is +40 for TSS and +30 for Free Guy. And of course, JC, TSS and FG all having good legs and surpassing 100M domestic. I was going to say before the thread closed that i truly believe most of people here aren't rooting for a failure. Right now we're not in position of wishing bad things to any movie, we need many as possible successful movies. I think the discussion is more because having signs that maybe an mid 20 OW is possible make everyone shocked, not because we'r

  27. It would be extremely frustrating to see TSS open under $30 mil. I'm still optimistic about a $50+ mil OW, but I have no clue how to predict in the covid age. No clue how much HBOMax siphons from the theaters, etc etc. But it's extremely frustrating to also read people just trolling the film for no reason. Such is the way of online forums.

  28. I think same. Though despite that if we didn't had tracking thread I would be going in weekend expecting $50-60M, so I would have been shocked if not for tracking thread next week. Though I have a theory, that has Superhero movies evolved to exist in shared universes with little interest by audience in something which doesn't have any large picture in universe it is set in. Like DCEU is pretty much done and dusted so the movie suffering from bad position of universe. There is nothing really new supposed to happen in TSS. Trailers basically suggested same reh

  29. If TSS would indeed lose over 100M compared to a predecessor with bad reviews and at best mixed fan reactions I would just be highly disappointed. And no so far bad presales number could prepare me (maybe on Thursday I would try to be prepared). But especially after a mostly disappointing summer (and I didn't expect wonders) and after TSS got even better than expected reviews this would just be a big letdown. But the last week is the important one. It could also be that people start to notice it's getting good reviews from critics and viewers with early access but don't fully believe it y

  30. Run rate at MTC2 is around half of MK as well (for combined Thu/Fri) but MK didn't have much Regal iirc. Obviously it still looks quite poor.
    3 points
  31. Actually, MK could be a solid comp. Went back and checked. At Sun before release, MK had twice the tickets for Fri at MTC2 that TSS does for Th+Fri. That was for non summer too. Could be worth digging around for run rates, but when Menor says Fri looks bad I really want to emphasize that it looks baaaaaaaaaaaaad.

  32. Meltdown threads partially, or maybe even mostly, come from unmet expectations. If the Tracking thread has been warning for weeks that something is likely to happen, is it really that unexpected? (yes I know, for some odd reason, the entire board doesn't revolve around this thread — still think word is getting out about the anemic pre-sales)

And now we see the first film on this list to have made the top 25 list way back in 2013. This has been quite the steady and sustained fall with each subsequent list and it really does raise a lot of questions over which over famous animations of old may be showing up sooner rather than later. This is also the first film to break 20

  41. Just did three theatres in Ontario. Two bigger ones in Toronto and a smaller one from my hometown. Had to estimate the total seats for some of the theatres because we do physical distancing here so if I buy a single seat for myself, nobody is sitting on my left or right. Cineplex just blocks those seats off. Is any US state doing that? I don’t know how much Ontario will help. Maybe it’s doing better in other provinces. T-4 to Thursday night: Scotiabank - IMAX 7:00pm - 97 sold / 400 10:15pm - 58 sold / 400 Regular 7:30pm - 28 sold / 312 8:00pm - 15 sold / 300 10:45pm - 4 sol

  42. Dune is not 2001 A Space Odyssey type of a movie. It's a family story. I will repeat again - Herbert writing style is cold but the story is not. For example, he highlights parts of relationships that aren't warm, such as Jessica and Paul as mentor and Chosen One, or Leto and Paul as Duke and his heir. But that doesn't change the fact that they are loving parents and son and if the movie wants to emphasize that, it can, and going by the trailer, it does. So you will get emotion. There's also romance (Paul/Chani, Leto/Jessica), friendship (Atreides household, Stilgar, Kynes), sacrifices, so ever

  43. Dude, all the board is trying to tell you is that the data for a big opening is not there yet. Can that change between now and Thursday - sure. I personally am expecting/hoping for an opening between 35-40m but its going to need to really power up in presales to get there. You are missing many many things in your analysis since your fan heart is the pair of glasses you are looking through. Not mocking just encouraging you to give the US members and trackers the space they have earned. There are lots of reasons for the film to do ok under normal circumstances, but this is not a normal pe

  45. Delta variant certainly could scare things out of theaters but Gopher is right on the money in so many ways. The fact is, the last year of delays occurred with an end goal in mind - buy us time until the vaccine is widely available throughout the country. But we don't have another end goal. The vaccine is available and it works about as well as a vaccine could realistically work. People are either going to take it or not, but there's really no other solution left except for everyone to either get vaccinated or get sick. The next set of delays and restrictions (both film and otherwise) would co
