  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. You know what, I'm gonna go into a little rant here, because this stuff is very personal to me and I really want you to understand why I'm so passionate about this stuff. I studied Communications in school. I've been in journalism classes. I've met people who have written about entertainment and the arts. So I'm not a film critic, but I know enough about journalistic integrity and an understanding about how all this works, so let me tell you that this idea that critics have agendas or are specifically out to get movies is a bunch of malarkey and rings to me as more just people bitter about som

  6. Recovery from an unprecedented once in a century global pandemic isn't going to be immediate. The industry had to shift and change to something completely different and now it is in the process of shifting back. People's habits were re-trained when theaters pretty much didn't exist for over a year. They are going to have to be re-trained back the other way. It's going to happen and it is working, but it's going to take time. The first thing that is going to happen is people get used to having theaters being the place to go to see new movies. That has already started and will

  10. You actually really can though, because context is everything and it is valid. We could do this same thing the other way though, when movies exceed all expectations like Venom 2, suddenly the chicken little stuff disappears. Certain movies and demographics are doing great or even better than before. Certain movies and demographics aren't yet and are going to take more time.

  11. Just like last week when GB was declared a disappointment after ONE day, Encanto is being given the same treatment. Give people a chance to see the thing and talk about it.

  23. The only thing I will take exception with here is that NTTD is losing money. It isn't. In fact, it is going to make a nice healthy profit for MGM/UA. They also don't really care because Amazon is giving them $9b sooner than later.

  24. I think I've harped on this, but the person who needs to be convinced to go back to the movies in full force is the 25+ female. Every big movie, women have been about 40% or less of the audience (now, some do skew male, but not ALL of them)...and the thing is, women that age tend to bring the kids and the groups. Very few 25+ women are attending movies alone (my mom used to always bring her other 55+ female friend, if she wasn't dragging 1 or more of her kids)... You need to convince THAT person that movies are safe, good, and worth it. Then, you'll get the families (women tend

  25. Encanto Tuesday (from earlier, around 9 PM EST) Seats Sold: 28083/174271 $ Sales: 325053 Around 80% of JC at the same point for both runs. But on a weekday the MTC2 ratio will be higher so maybe 2m or a bit under.

  26. If ViewerAnon chose to leak the plot just to spite Rowling, then that seems like a pretty shortsighted decision. She’s not the only person involved with this movie, and it seems unlikely that this will impact her bottom line in any meaningful way.

  27. I hope both Gucci and Encanto can do well this weekend as animated family films and adult skewing films have been two of the weaker products vs. pre pandemic. Will be a good sign for years end and 2022 if people are more willing to go out and watch these kinds of films.

  28. That clip sums up everything that has been wrong with this franchise since Jurassic World. Look at the movie theater scene - it is all revealed and done with in about 70 seconds, instead of taking the time to slowly build tension, have people get uncomfortable, and then commence with the action. Look at the difference between the footsteps in the puddle and where we are now. Just night and day in terms of building tension and suspense.

Also, congratulations to No Time To Die: It’ll pass Avatar here in the UK today or tomorrow to become the fourth biggest film, of all time. Insane.

  37. So, I'm sitting here wondering why, when so few (I think me and Empire City were alone in early September) thought Ghostbusters could be a $100M+ DOM total movie 2 months ago, there's now so much disappointment when it will very likely make this milestone with this open? It's got a $75M budget (I think I saw that bandied about in the movie thread)- and it will probably get to 2x budget easily WW (and who knows, maybe close to 3x) in a pandemic with a "tarnished" brand...how is this not a nice successful weekend?

  38. $16.5m confirmed. Let's see how Saturday numbers look. WOM hasn't had a chance to kick in yet and this could be the first Saturday that we get a return to the usual bump. This one isn't over yet. Stay tuned.

I would guess 11m true friday(lower than what Charlie said). Hope I am wrong :-( Anyway I will take a break from tracking until you know what PS start. it should be really interesting considering the short PS window.

  41. The theatrical business is definitely not normal. Older audience are comfortable waiting for movies to hit streaming or families are not eager to go to multiplex as well. Keep that in mind even for big movies releasing in the near future(including your friendly neighborhood hero). I am not expecting us to go back to pre COVID era of BO for a while(if we ever go there with new strategy of getting movies on streaming at the earliest). Other day there was an article if Nolan's Oppenheimer will be the last big budget drama for big screen. I certainly do hope not.
