    And it's horrible. The longfeared IMDb future has arrived, and it's ugly, inaccessible, and very bad.

    AMC - 187398/722656(4275 shows) ok 1st successful run for AMC I got data for 4275 out of 4313 shows. That is a good sample set. Let me check for OD as well. it has good sales into the weekend at this point. I will also refresh to see any new shows added. Also I see Empire 25 has non reserved 2d shows. That is the 1st I have seen for the theater. My data is just for reserved screens. As I said earlier, I hope to get more data by end of weekend around region split and PLF share. Edit: So how big is this number. Its 40% ahead of Joker previews on Thursday night. I will update end of day to see where its gonna end. But I am optimistic about 1M+ sales at just AMC for just previews. Early guess is at least 50m in previews. I would like the show time to double before have greater perspective on the number.

    In Greece, Joker has surpassed Endgame to become the biggest comic-book adaptation of all time. In a 'mature' market like Greece, this is truly rermarkable. Before Endgame, the record had been held for 15 years by Spider-Man 2.

I speak French so I've read them. All in all definitely not the disaster some expected. The most negative ones all say it's still better than Genisys and they did like some of performances. The mixed ones are basically saying it's a fun action movie but not much else. The most positive ones say it's the first worthy success to T2 (although none will say it's better than T1 or T2 but who expected that?). Biggest complaint is probably that it's still sticking too close to the formula. Worst reviews are 2/5 stars. There's actually a 5/5 review. All in all pretty much what I expected from Miller and critic response. Excited to see it.

    Japan - Friday Joker win this day over Maleficent with around 18% more admission. only drop 14.3% from last weekend. Big chance to increase in this weekend for Joker.
  12. 10 points
    Well, I haven't updated this on a while. At first it was because I was very busy, but now is because there's literally no Box Office in the country. Since October 18th Chile has been in the middle of massive protests and social unrest, the spark was a subway fare hike but the underlining problem is the economic system and sistematic inequality. Showings started being canceled on Friday 18th and by Saturday evening all Cinema chains had canceled all the functions in all the country and they haven't reopened so far. There's currently a State of Emergency and Curfrew (the first since Pinochet) in the capital Santiago and in cities of 13 regions. I was in Santiago when everything started and honestly the whole experience felt like being an extra in a post-credit scene of the Joker.

    Thank you for confirming that $900M on a $55M budget isn't so bad, even if it is obviously a huge disappointment for DC.

    Now for a ton of different reasons, the comps are all out of whack. EG had 24 days of pre-sales and TROS... has a few more. Even so, not too shabby. A direct comp-for-comp look against Captain Marvel, even spotting it a day, is asanine. At the same time, it's the only one I have with the same amount of days of pre-sales. Infinity War is interesting, not so much for the comp, though at 42 days of pre-sales, it's within spitting distance at least. No, it's more for the 5+ hour comparison with the 14+ hour comparison. IW sold 541 more tickets on its second day of sales (ie everything tomorrow), so TROS still handily beats it. And while I don't know what to expect locally tomorrow, it's still gonna grow some. Then there's poor Solo. I'm throwing that in for one reason and one reason only. SW comped to SW, even if one of them had 21 days of pre-sales and the other had 59+. More to the point... Final Number of tickets sold for Solo locally at stop of tracking: 5789. Total Number of tickets sold for TROS (adj) after five+ hours: 7158. If we do something of a comp, that would be 17.43m in Thursday sales ALREADY. Now, that's something of a blunt instrument. But I think it shows a decent idea of how it's already done. We'll see what the trades say after 24 hours of sales.

    A TEASER Cap enters The Cave, still only lit by the blazing fire. Now two faces stare into the deeps of the embers. CAP: @Spaghetti -- Cap's mobile rings. CAP: Um, hold on. Cap takes the call. She 'Uh huh's 'Yeah, that's right, yeah, Uh huh, uh huh, yeah, great, great' for about five minutes. CAP: Sorry. Spaghetti -- Cap's mobile goes off again. Ping. Ping. Ping. Ping. Frantically, she taps at her phone. CAP: I just have to handle this -- Ping. Ping. Ping. Spaghetti and @Porthos glares at each other, and then at Cap. This wasn't in the script. PORTHOS: I feel a great disturbance in The Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. CAP: Only twelve. And now we're done! Ping. Ping. Ping. CAP: [to Porthos] You still have your lightsaber? [He nods] Okay, right now, both of you. CUT TO: Porthos with his lightsaber, Spaghetti with Cap's shield, and Cap with Mjolnir in an open field. SPAGHETTI: Should you be using that? CAP: We'll find out! She brings down the lightning on THE COPY MACHINE a la: PORTHOS: Feeling better? Cap just shrugs. SPAGHETTI [aside to Porthos]: Should we tell her that's a printer and not THE copy machine? Porthos shakes his head. CUT TO, FIFTEEN MINUTES LATER, TAKE 2: Cap enters The Cave, still only lit by the blazing fire. Now two faces stare into the deeps of the embers. CAP: Spaghetti, it's time. Spaghetti, in his Jedi Robe, raises from his place to approach his friend and foe. He pulls down his robe to reveal mud war paint. SPAGHETTI: During this week of self-reflection, I have sought wisdom in an old mentor, looked into the deeps of my soul, and walked through the mists of this cave. I know what I need to do. CAP: SLAM! waits for you outside. May the Force be with you. Spaghetti walks out. Cap turns to Porthos. CAP: It's also time for you. PORTHOS: No. Numbers, must I count. CAP: Soon. PORTHOS: Soon. A SHOWDOWN AT THE PALACE The Gene Kellys ( @Thanos Legion, @ZeeSoh, @Keanu, @elcaballero, @JJ-8, @DAJK)enter and sit in the front row stage right. The Fred Astaires ( @chasmmi, @Claire of Themyscira, @PanaMovie, @Rorschach, @Sheikh, @Wrath )enter and sit in the front row stage left. SLAM!, Cap, and Spaghetti walk down the center aisle up to center stage. SLAM!: Spaghetti, your envelope please. Spaghetti hands SLAM! a sealed envelope with the name of his showdown opponent. CAP: Before we open it, do you have any finale words. SPAGHETTI [to the Contestants]: Let me make one thing perfectly clear. SPAGHETTI: I like all of you. I trust most of you. This was not an easy choice. That said, it'll be remarkably easy to tell if any of you had sabotaged me. Let it be known that I do not forgive and forget easily. In this season or another, you're going to regret your betrayal. SPAGHETTI: I recommend thinking twice before making a cruel, vicious move. However, I do believe in karma. Perhaps that is sufficient. Claire, Zeesoh, and Sheikh nod. Wrath squirms. PanaMovie and Rorschach do not look at Spaghetti's eyes. SLAM! opens the envelope. SLAM!: Spaghetti chose: They stand. They walk up to face Spaghetti on the stage. CAP: Are you ready? OPPONENT: I am. CAP: I have both of your scores in my hand. I am going to reveal them one by one. Before I do, do either of you want to turn in any tuck shop items? OPPONENT: I do not. I believe my scores will see my through. SPAGHETTI: I do. Spaghetti turns in THREE CANDY APPLES. SLAM!: These ARE candy apples purchased from the tuck shop. Spaghetti will add +6% to his scores. CAP: I will reveal the scores. First we start with Maleficent: Mistress of Evil: Next, Zombieland: Double Tap: And, Parasite: And Gemini Man: And JoJo Rabbit: And Jexi: CAP: And, the winner is, with the score from my beloved Judy:

    Counted today at ca. 11am EST: Maleficent 2: NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 211 (total tickets sold for Thursday) / 323 (total tickets sold for Friday, 11 showtimes) Boston (AMC Assembly Row 12): 80 / 124 (13 showtimes) Boston (Boston Common 19): 75 / 104 (9 showtimes) Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 221 / 224 (10 showtimes) Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 24 / 32 (11 showtimes) Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 31 / 33 (8 showtimes) Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Center Point 11): 29 / 43 (11 showtimes) Total tickets sold in 7 theaters till Thursday for Thursday: 671 (yesterday 572) and for Friday: 883 (yesterday 681). OUATIH had 1.603 and 1.375 sold tickets in these 7 theaters. Unfortunately a massive error occured (as often) when I wanted to count in San Francisco so I can only see the jump compared to yesterday in 7 theaters: It went up 17% (Thursday) and 30% (Friday). Overall it's still the same: With nice walk ups it could l have a decent weekend but its presales alone don't convince me, not at all. The only good news is that indeed it doesn't look frontloaded. Zombieland 2: Counted today at ca. 7am (so 4 hours earlier than usually and its numbers would normally be slightly higher): NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 126 (total tickets sold for Thursday) / 179 (total tickets sold for Friday, 7 showtimes) Boston (AMC Assembly Row 12): 79 / 80 (10 showtimes) Boston (Boston Common 19): 57 / 118 (10 showtimes) Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 91 / 100 (10 showtimes) Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 69 / 107 (9 showtimes) Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 49 / 36 (6 showtimes) Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Center Point 11): 73 / 42 (4 showtimes) San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 272 / 302 (9 showtimes) LA (AMC Bay Street): 55 / 106 (13 showtimes) LA (AMC Universal): 247 / 139 (11 showtimes) Total tickets sold in 10 theaters till Thursday for Thursday: 1.118 and for Friday: 1.209. Comps: Angel has Fallen had on Thursday – but later in the day – 654/580, Good Boys had 1.065/965 and Scary Stories 1.096/754 sold tickets. A mediocre jump compared to yesterday but it still looks good. Also less frontloaded than e.g. Scary Stories. I would go with 20M+ at the moment but if this film really has good walk ups (no idea) then it could even reach 25M I think.

    So my computer is having all kinds of issues. But before everything went haywire Thursday preview sales looked to be in the 130k range at Cinemark, which translates to about 13 million nationwide and about 68% of Endgame's first day.

    Mass Effect: Ascension I do have my quibbles. There's a bit of overly-convenient plotting, and elements of the resolution are a touch saccharine for my tastes. There's also the issue of Garrus - considering the pivotal role he plays in the climax, it's a bit awkward having him not even be mentioned until the third act. A small scene or reference to him earlier on might have been helpful structurally. But it's an engaging story, well-written, with distinct characters and solid pacing (a marked improvement over the first film's). It's also almost totally free of distracting editing errors or slip-ups (which yes, I do detract points for if they interfere with readability or immersion - if I say your movie has bad editing I mean you should proofread your stuff). It was a thoroughly entertaining adventure and tells a compelling tale on its own while both tying up loose ends from the first and setting up some future events. Well done. 4.5 Officially-Licensed Garrus Dakimakura Out of 5

    As I said in another thread: Frozen 2 will also be the last movie I will comment here, it's been a pleasure to be with many of you here on these forums but I think it's the perfect moment to go, once the box office run of this movie is done. 7 years and a half of nice moments but sometimes it's just time to turn a new leaf and you mustn't overstay your welcome. Let's hope Frozen 2 will have an amazing box office and will be a quality movie Frozen 2 being in January is annoying, I won't be there to comment its box office but I'll give you some data for allowing comparisons if you intend to keep the thread alive. I'm particularly happy about it having gone beyond 1,000 pages and all these funny moments we lived together but I don't feel the need to go on forever, I've done my share and I still cna comment all this on Twitter if I want to. Thank you for all these great moments, in 2 months I'll be gone (= when Frozen 2's final tally will be possibly known given some trends will allow a guesstimate).

    112th Max - Sam and Max (51 points) The only psychotic Rabbit to make the vote i believe (although possibly not the only psychotic rabbid). Max was one half a crime solving duo so inseparable that I believe the only reason Max is 104th is because he has second billing in the game. A star of the old Lucas arts point and click extravaganza period, when you would tell a dog, rabbit, scientist or tenticle to pick up a tube of glue and he'd refuse and talk to the wall or something; Sam and Max was a game with a lot of personality and great dialogue. Also the games hold up pretty well in the sense that they were impossible nonsense puzzles that beat you into submission, with the only saving grace being the fun main characters then, and they are impossible nonsense puzzles that beat you into submission, with the only saving grace being the fun main characters now.

    So, I got back from Joker... Wow, it's my favorite non-super this year:). So atmospheric, so perfect for a murky, dark fall movie. And everything is so gritty and real...it's like living our reality, not a supers one (I'd say more, especially about how I loved Gotham City's progression, but staying spoiler-free:)... Plus, there's no more wondering - wrap up the best actor Oscar. The movie, like Venom, hung COMPLETELY on the lead character...and he totally delivered:). I'd give the movie an overall B+ (I think my spouse is an A-)...I found it seemed longer than it was (my spouse had no such issue), and I felt even in the cut, some parts could have been "sped up" a little...but there's nothing I would change on the script or the acting...so perfect. Maybe tomorrow, I'll move up to an A-...it's really, really throw back movie making...in a weekend we are talking about all the best 70s-90s movies, this was a tone perfect delivery of that this afternoon...

    yeah i dislike that kind of argument. when the departed won and people were like "but it's nowhere near scorsese's best!" so? it wasn't competing against taxi driver, goodfellas etc. it was the best film of the line-up it was in imo. if parasite is nominated it shouldn't win because no other foreign language film has won, even if it ends up being the best film in the line-up? and frankly publicity, money, marketing, campaigning, the right distribution etc is stuff that matters when it comes to winning oscars and 99% of foreign language films don't have that but parasite does. the fact that bong joon ho has built up more of a name for himself with american cinephiles through his english language films is part of it to. like cuaron and roma the hype probably wouldn't be there if he was some newbie coming in hot with his first film.
