  3. Bearing in mind the details haven’t been announced for each of these things (and that, since they approved it, the IATSE bargaining committee will recommend ratification), here is what was achieved: • Living wage achieved • Improved wages and working conditions for streaming • Retroactive scale wage Increases of 3% annually • Employer Funded Benefits for the term • Increased meal period penalties including prevailing rate • Daily Rest Periods of 10 hours without exclusions • Weekend Rest Periods of 54 and 32 hours • Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday Holiday • Div

  4. A word to the wise - the trackers on this thread are some of the best, committed, and most experienced folks on this site. Picking a fight with them in your 1st two posts is the way to become persona non grata on the boards. Instead, I, like Charlie, suggest you read this entire thread and many of the other movie threads (including past weekend threads) to get a feel for how folks arrive at their early movie box office predictions, how they use early presales to adjust those expectations, and how they use late presales to see if movies are still on proper tracks for t

  5. I just have one question.... Where has this site been all my life???? I talk to my friends about how much a movie makes and they look at me like "why are you talking about that??" I am at peace.

  6. Whats your point? Charlie has been far more accurate than the tracking websites (BO report BoPro). Its impossible to predict within a few million every single time because nobody knows what walkups will be. The preview number have been very accurate for the most part. James Bond for example was selling like it would do 70M plus up to 3 days before opening. Now a person could say 'lets see how it goes" up until Thursday and then make a prediction or just simple state previews are showing... ticket sales for the weekend are showing and this indicates 70 to 75M opening. If there is no s

  10. Moderation @lorddemaxus serious question here: why are you in this thread? We know you aren't interested in this movie. We know you don't like Marvel. We know you don't like Marvel fans. What exactly are you trying to gain from all this? Why go into a thread to something you know you're gonna hate when you can do something so much more productive? Why do you care so much about some dude's Letterboxd review? Because right now, you're just being an obnoxious, immature buzzkill, and it seems you're just looking for a fight and derailing a thread rather than giving out anything insight

It exceeded numbers projected by @charlie Jatinder for previews. I agree with him on 10m+ previews now. Excellent MTC ratios for friday/saturday as well, compared to what we saw

  14. Dune at MTC2 is at 56030/261888, $745765. Will probably final at 58k. Definitely slowed down in the late hours (runtime also might contribute to that). Will finish around 90% of Bond, though with MTC1 doing better, I will stick with ~5m. Friday final PS is looking like ~52k though I won't have full numbers tonight. Running about 70% of Bond pretty consistently, so I think 11-12m seems likely for true Friday. Hopefully MTC1 is better.

  15. Please guys, I know no one means anything bad by any of this, but it’s incredibly condescending and minimizing of people’s struggles when you assume you know more about their work situation than they do.

  16. Eternals Previews MTC1 - 14049/335196 257077.31 1686 shows. Excellent start. its definitely ahead of Shang Chi start. I dont have BW except for morning next day when it sold over 30K tickets(and about 20K at MTC2). Let us how things go. Show count wise nothing crazy so far.

  17. Friday numbers from last night: Eternals MTC2 Friday: Showtimes: 3713 Seats Sold: 16165/620794 (+1285) Total $ Sales: 216912 (+17238) Strong reactions bump, though not quite as amazing as the bump for Thursday was. Dune MTC2 Friday: Showtimes: 3410 (+1207!) Seats Sold: 29546/517814 (+5815) Total $ Sales: 385641 (+73328) Decent jump, well below Bond's jump though, but with this being non-discount-boosted, can catch up tomorrow. Still thinking 14 million Friday is possible. 5-14-17-

  18. "Insiders say advance sales for the movie from Oscar winning filmmaker Chloé Zhao, is estimated to have racked up $2.6M in its first 24 hours; an amount that’s +86% ahead of Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings ($1.4M) and +30% ahead of Black Widow ($2M) over the same period of time. For No. 1 exhibitor AMC, Eternals reps their largest day one sales so far this year".

  19. Venom 2 Previews Final MTC1 - 206846/705013 3203659.08 3897 shows MTC2 - 192093/714267 2455306.43 5311 shows WOW. Just phenomenal finish for Venom 2. I think 12m+ is locked. In fact I am going to say it will be around 12.5m. I will update OD PS later. But based on what we saw today, real action will be seen with walk ups. It crushed F9 or any other movie in pandemic era today. Plus that MTC1 to MTC2 ratio shows it played well everywhere.

  23. Halloween Kills MTC2 Thursday: Showtimes: 1973 Seats Sold: 29499/263080 Total $ Sales: 380012 WOW. I don't have any good horror comps other than Keyser's numbers for AQP2 which was a different environment, but definitely looks like 6m+ in previews. Maybe even higher if walkups are good, which horror should have. Friday is taking a while, probably won't post it tonight. But it is looking at 48-50k which is 80% of Venom 2 at the same point. This movie is doing incredibly well. We have been sleeping on it, but unless Peacock impacts the walkups,

  24. Here's what happens to me when a tweet like this goes out: I immediately get flooded with DMs asking me for more information which I can't provide. I immediately get a bunch of people calling me an idiot because they're defensive of a movie they haven't seen yet. Let's assume I just put out that initial tweet with no clarification (seven whole minutes) after. What exactly do I gain from that? I don't have a platform that makes money. I don't have a name that needs bigger "reach". And forgive me, but a couple hundred strangers liking my tweet doesn't exactly make my d

  25. Dune MTC2 Thursday: Showtimes: 1128 Seats Sold: 17537/190081 Gross: 246639 Friday: Showtimes: 2110 Seats Sold: 20039/371967 Gross: 264491 Thursday is somewhat close to Bond at the same point. Friday is well below (around 80%). Eternals MTC2 Thursday: Showtimes: 1967 Seats Sold: 21050/320645 Added around 2300 in the past 2.5 days. Slowish pace but not a big deal this far out (it has kept around 70% of BW's pace consistently). First big test will be the reactions bump and how well it c

  27. Since people seem insistent on pouring that lemon juice (), I might as well set the record straight here for folks who weren't around at the time. What Fandango claimed is that within the first 24 hours Solo outsold the first 24 hours of Black Panther on its platform. This ignores that Black Panther was the Marvel film that pretty much broke the mold when it came to non-Avenger Marvel films doing gangbusters sales. Its $200m+ was (almost) completely unexpected and it was a case of it just selling and selling and selling tickets as pre-sales went on. You can

  31. Oh we're not doing this revisionist stuff here. All of y'all were saying this was going to be a megabomb of epic proportions. Everybody was saying that the film was doomed forever because of HBO Max. But now despite all the stuff going against it, we're suddenly about to poo-poo on an opening that most of y'all would say would be above average pre-pandemic? I know part of the reason is because the legs will be nonexistent (seriously, Jason Kilar has no excuse to make Dune and Matrix exceptions), but give me a break.

  32. Awesome User name for sure :-) Dune MTC1 Previews Final - 94843/326874 1615809.43 1822 shows Friday PS final - 107136/728057 1811176.50 4026 shows 1st off all previews did taper off after it looked like hitting 100K tickets early on. I am thinking low 5's(~5.3m ) from my perspective. its tad above 30% gross from Suicide Squad final as well. Strong Canada and few other minor chains balance weak MTC2. Its PS is more than 90% in gross compared to NTTD. Similar walkups should take it close to 15m but let us see how things go. Should be suffice

  33. Eternals MTC2 Thursday: Showtimes: 1966 Seats Sold: 23663/320507 (+1838) $ sales: 338191 (+25961) Good bump from reactions. More than doubled yesterday's pace. Hopefully the pace doesn't drop too much in the following days (a drop is surely inevitable though). Needs to sustain at least some of this boost to avoid falling too far behind BW. Dune MTC2 Thursday: Showtimes: 1709 (+478) Seats Sold: 23575/248493 (+3568) $ sales: 330144 (+48813) Ok bump I suppose. Unfortunately can't really use the Bond comp to

Definitely think this is opening > Godzilla 5 day at this point. Its trailer in Dolby was terrific as well.
