  2. Awful for both Encanto and Gucci. Cases are going up and COVID will never end. We are going to see theater and businesses shut down again. Republicans will sweep the 2022 midterms and then steal the election in 2024. Society has fundamentally shifted on its axis and we will never get back to normal. Between the neverending pandemic, the political coup and upheaval, and the changing norms caused by technology and post-pandemic life, we are heading towards a period of societal unrest and breakdown. Or maybe they will have good weekend IMs, I don't know.

  3. SPENCER OPENING WEEKEND THREAD After months of anticipation and speculation the most anticipated film of the season arrives: SPENCER. Kristen Stewart sheds her non-acting awkward persona to completely transform into Diana Spencer, aka Princess Diana, the Dutches off Wales and most-beloved women of her time. Will Stewart finally shed her teenage persona of "that chick from Twilight"? Will her harrowing performances earn her an Oscar nomination and win? The Academy Awards are suckers for these totally immersive, ripped from the history books roles (Renee Z

While Previews are still well behind SC growth for the day, Friday/Saturday growth are super strong. Definitely think double digit previews is back on the menu. Comps.

  6. Really good Saturday number for G:A, and like I kept screaming from the rooftops way back in August when I saw it, the WOM is going to be great on it. It will only pick up steam during the week and into next weekend. It won't shock me if it is near or above $100m by next Sunday. It is going to have a ton of space to run up to and possibly even through the holiday. Good for Sony. I am usually down on them, but they without a doubt have been top notch in their marketing and support of theatrical exclusive films during the pandemic. It is great to see the public re

  7. After really liking Eternals, Shang-Chi, and Loki I was worried I was becoming an MCU fan. Thankfully, this trailer was released stopping that process dead in its track. I can now hate the MCU again in peace.

  9. Real numbers not very pretty. MHA was insanely frontloaded may not be even the biggest opener this weekend. I am think low 2's. it sold just over 53K tickets(725K gross) and looking at @Menor post, MTC2 was also frontloaded. Thinking MTC will over index and gross in low 2's today :-( Dune finished at 72411/435669 1149473.94 2346 shows. It lost tons of shows and only Imax shined today. Thinking 5m friday. Hopefully halloween will ensure it has a good multi but @Avatar Legion was on the point on this.

  10. One last point that people also need to adjust in their minds is that studios really aren't nearly as concerned with budgets at this point. Content is king, and they need to produce it no matter what. They need a never ending stream of it. Movies don't need to make money or even break even in theatrical release going forward. If anything, theatrical is being seen as a way to recover a nice chunk of the budget while on the back end the streaming revenue more than makes up for everything. It is also why Disney isn't pushing nearly as hard to get into China, which i

  11. Just pathetic and sad for King Richard. The ultimate crowdpleaser starring one of the few draws left, and they just buried it. Buried the campaign, buried it on HBO Max. It's just so discouraging to follow it makes me want to not even post. I actually think that number is quite good for Ghosbusters. A non-comedy, mediocrely reviewed Ghostbusters reboot in a pandemic (after Halloween) coming off a 46m OW reboot? Never thought it was doing 60m like some people. 42 or so would be a spectacular number.

  14. Well... COVID sucks. Long COVID sucks. And Colorado sucks because we've reached Florida level of stupidness. I actually think I caught Delta in August. Nothing major but my digestive system which has been rock solid all my life all of a sudden betrayed me. For 2 months it was a toss up when I ate/drank anything whether I'd be in the can 15 minutes later. Add to that some occasional sever fatigue, lack of motivation, and a general sense of fatality and you have some long COVID symptoms. I used to hit on my golf simulator 5 days a week but didn't touch it for a month

  15. Look, I don't think it's nitpicky to say that the trailer does very little to set up some of its villains, providing very brief glimpses that you could almost barely tell they were from the previous films and I'm not happy about Dafoe being reduced to a voice in this trailer. Beyond that, the Scooby Doo joke sucked. The movie could be fine and will do super well, but trailer is ass in my book

  16. Moderation Yeah, we're done with this right here. We've all seen this song and dance routine with reshoots before and we know that it doesn't mean anything. It could mean the movie's good, it could mean the movie's bad. And a bad production does not equal a bad movie, nor does it mean the director's original work was tarnished and destroyed and that the evil producers are destroying some beautiful classic. You all know better than this. I'm sure you all have your reasons as to why you know this film is doomed forever and that Sam Raimi's beautiful art is getting destroy

  25. Eternals MTC2 Thursday: Showtimes: 2138 (+112) Seats Sold: 51194/46236 (+4958) $ Sales: 702525 (+63581) SC added around 4900 in 23 hours in my check, so Eternals is slightly behind pace but not too bad. It built up enough in early sales (currently has a 12k lead over SC at the same point) that if it can keep sort of matching SC, it'll do 9.5-10 previews. Friday: Showtimes: 3871 (+75) Seats Sold: 48492/638293 (+12172) $ Sales: 623720 (+150402) This is a 2-day pace. Still, I actually am pleased with this. Per @keysers

  32. God, these presales are cratering. Giving it an average Saturday hold by MCU standards would be something like this for the weekend: 9M Previews 18M Friday (2x previews) 17M Saturday (-5%) 12M Sunday (-30%) 56M Weekend And that's assuming preview presales don't lose more momentum. Edit: Realizing now the saturday drop is probably too harsh. Still not seeing over 70M
