    4/23 Friday BO Mortal Kombat(T-3) MTC1 - 55390/620452 764534.00 3252 shows(429 Theatres) +9959 // 135 sellouts MTC2 - 50029/452759 610898.53 2965 shows(294 Theatres) +8283 Demon Slayer Friday MTC1 - 63495/535221 818630.00 3609 shows(407 Theatres) +7476// 326 sellouts MTC2 - 50679/324794 686766.07 2717 shows(276 theatres) +6853 As I posted above, dramatic increase in show counts for DS. I expect the BO to increase at faster pace in next few days. For MK the PS is chugging along very well and it has caught up at MTC2 at least in ticket sales. But I expect DS PS to also increase at better rate soon with increased showcount. Overall BO should see a big boost. MK seem to have few shows on thursday at MTC2(none at MTC1). Its at 647/17075 6158.22 103 shows(19 theatres). Almost no impact to overall OD BO.

    people dragging Feige for being impressed by how Chloe Zhao made the film look on real locations just sounds like they're trying to undermine her work, as if anyone could make a film look great on practical locations.

    Since I ran my data on a desktop, I was able to get more data that usual. 4/24 Saturday BO Mortal Kombat MTC1 - 29139/675254 373666.00 3544 shows(420 Theatres) MTC2 - 29418/527567 347920.26 3488 shows(294 Theatres) Demon Slayer MTC1 - 60301/591297 779539.00 3914 shows(398 Theatres) MTC2 - 51464/394560 699913.28 3145 shows(275 Theatres) No competition at all. DS > 2x MK on saturday. Also DS saturday PS is not that far off from Friday numbers while MK is way below. Let us see how things go. Edit: Looking at all 3 Days PS I am thinking 4x thursday BO can happen. Saturday will be lot higher than thursday for sure looking at show counts and PS.

    CM was 80% of FFH in trailer views, but ended up being ahead of it in domestic OW and gross. You can't make such a precise prediction based on trailer views.

    Demon Slayer (T-3) MTC1 - 58883/338825 869260.00 1997 shows (322 theatres) +12445 // 201 sellouts MTC2 - 61991/304361 861013.10 2327 shows(275 theatres) +10829 // 240 sellouts I did not update yesterday but its definitely slowing down relative to GVK. Especially at MTC1. Good thing is its still slightly ahead in $ value due to higher ticket prices but GVK will overtake there as well as final push wont be that strong. GVK did 395K between the 2 MTC. I think somewhere between 250-300K would be a good range. I think that will translate to 6.5-7m OD. But this movie would be hard to project as it has a niche. I could still be overestimating it big time.

    It's very unlikely that any of the non-medical ingredients in the AZ or J&J vaccines could be causing the blood clots. They're basically all fairly generic small molecules that are used in plenty of other vaccines/medicines as stabilizers/emulsifiers etc. It does indeed seem that in a very small proportion of individuals (1 in 250,000 to 1 in 100,000) the AZ vaccine and now presumably the J&J vaccine cause anti-PF4 (platelet factor 4) antibodies to be generated, causing what is being referred to as "vaccine-induced (pro)thrombotic (immune) thrombocytopenia" - VITT or VIPIT for short. In some portion of those individuals, blood clots form in places they otherwise very, very rarely occur. (For example, the brain clots known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis - which was what was first identified as having an unusually high frequency after AZ vaccination.) In the aforementioned link that was posted, three possibilities are proposed for why the anti-PF4 antibodies are being generated in the affected individuals: 1) Some number of the adenovirus particles are breaking up and releasing free DNA. Free DNA is negatively charged, helping it to bind to the positively charged platelet factor. Free DNA is also immunogenic (our own DNA is always bound to proteins inside the nucleus), so the complexing with PF4 ends up (rarely) causing anti-PF4 antibodies to be generated. 2) Anti-PF4 antibodies are pre-existing and the immune response to vaccination is causing them to be boosted. (The article doesn't mention this, but this fails to explain why we see this for the AZ vaccine and not other vaccines. Not impossible, if it were a dosing issue, but with J&J also now having an issue I think this is less likely as a primary cause.) 3) Some antibodies generated against the RBD of the coronavirus are cross-reactive with PF4. This would mean any COVID vaccine would cause the clotting disorder, and so far no cases have been seen with the tens of millions of Pfizer/Moderna vaccinations. (The article doesn't say this explicitly but I think this possibility can essentially be excluded now.) There is another possibility (which I'll number "4") not explicitly mentioned in the article (somewhat implied, I've seen it explicitly stated in other sources): 4) Some antibodies generated against the ad5/ad26 adenoviral vector are cross-reactive with PF4. Like 1) above, this explanation would be consistent with the AZ and J&J vaccines causing VITT but not Pfizer/Moderna. Unlike 1) it would suggest the problem could be specific to the adenoviral vectors rather than any DNA-based viral vector vaccine. No other viral vector vaccine has been administered to hundreds of thousands of people before, so it's difficult to resolve between 1) and 4) at this time. Late edit: As pointed out below, Sputnik uses both the ad5 and ad26 viral vectors being used by AZ and J&J, respectively. Amended post above to include ad26 (originally only mentioned ad5).

    Yeah...I don't have much time to write for this anymore sadly. Doesn't mean reviews aren't fair game! Except here's the thing, I'm doing my top 25 first. No reviews beforehand. Each rank on my 25 will include a mini-review. You can request films ahead of time, but like I said. They'll have to wait until after the countdown.

    It's down about 28k tickets at MTC1 and 19k at MTC2. I expect it will gain well over 10k at each just from tomorrow's PS. Walk-ins will be much stronger as well for MK. I think it will comfortably surpass DS on Saturday as well.

    Most countries in EU have individiual relief packages. Here in Denmark we have a fantastic safety net where 99% of all people get full salery under lockdown just sitting on their ass doing nothing and buisnesses get 80-90% compensation. We actually have fewer buisness closings than other years

One of the theatres is underperforming (Moraleja) but that's because that cinema is more for elder people so you don't expect that demographic to watch Kimetsu. Problem here will be capacity. Seeing the other anime films and comparing pre-sales, I think Demon Slayer could outgross Mortal Kombat and go for €550-650K with breakout possibility. I've talked to another Spanish Box Office enthusiast and he is predicting a bigger range of €700K-1M. List of Anime films' OW in Spain I tried to search for more but it was impossible to find data without ComScore (I don't have access), so a lot of Ghibli films, Doraemon, Pokemon and Detective Conan films are missing.

    If she changes her mind, I'd suggest the 2nd trimester. That's when you definitely feel your best, and the pregnancy has "settled in." And if she waits a few months, she'll see the studies from pregnant women now (I think they are occurring while the children's studies are occurring)... And if I haven't said before...Congratulations!:)

    Cool. Give it a shot. I will take a break from DS tracking tomorrow and take a look at MK at least in MTC1. Is there an expectation of big numbers for MK as well. 2 big openers seem crazy in these times. DS seem to have good sales even for Friday despite MK opening. I am expecting 25-30m over 4 day weekend looking at the trend.

    This makes Marvel and Feige look bad. Marvel should always aim for real locations when possible, they have the money for it. Practical sets and on-location shooting will always look better than a green screen. Feige actually seems surprised by that, which is pretty laughable.

    All that shows is they that they don't make films like Titanic or ROTK anymore. Those films blew the competition out of the water in most of the categories they were nominated for. These films are rare events and would have sweeped the awards with this years competition too.

    Mortal Kombat will have the walkup factor. But as I also check the weekend locally, the local Studio Movie Grill (which is one of the A-tier theaters in the region) is already selling out on Saturday when it comes to Demon Slayer. ... I mean, DS DOES have all of Thursday Night to itself comparatively speaking, as Mortal Kombat isn't doing previews.

    See, that's what I'm not too sure about. How many auditoriums on a rando weekday go with more than a handful of people? If the over/under of leaving money on the table for a $150 PWP is approximately 16 tickets (with adjustments for matinee, senior, children, and so on), then maybe for the screens that aren't seeing much traffic it makes sense to set one or two aside if the demand is there for Private Watch Parties. But then comes the opening weekend of big movies (not even thinking about mega blockbusters). Losing any screen in that scenario might be unprofitable. But what if a chain decides that it's an acceptable loss-leader to have an occasional screen "lose" seats if it builds up longer term loyalty in buying Private Watch Parties. That is, not maximizing revenue on x given day in case it leads to group Y buying more PWPs down the road. On the other hand, if folks who are buying PWPs aren't also then spending a lot of money on concessions, then it might start becoming unprofitable at a lower point. That is, even if the total ticket revenue from a PWP screening might be more than if they left that screen open to the public, the amount of concessions sold might be less if there aren't that many people in a given PWP. And as we all know, theaters make a lot of their money at the concession line. But on yet another hand, is the total revenue from a PWP more than, say, some random movie in its six or seventh week of release? Might end up that holdovers get sacrificed more for a PWP slot. Yet on even one more hand, if folks don't like having PWPs on smaller screens at a theater, maybe they stop buying them which means a theater has to set aside at least a decent sized screen, which would presumably up the ante on leaving money on the table, especially on weekends. What I'm getting at is that there are lots of moving parts here and the notion of "unprofitability" might not be as easy to suss out as it might seem at first blush. Including people getting used to the idea of PWPs and then getting cranky at a theater chain when they start to take them away/cut them back/put them on the worst screens at a theater.
