  1. Hello BOT community. Today I have some news to share with y'all. I am stepping aside as "Chief Admin" and instead taking a different role in the staff. I remember as a small-time poster from Box Office Mojo being extremely discouraged when we found out that BOM decided it wasn't worth bringing back it's forums. I remember helping Shawn set up the forum and in exchange he hired me as a moderator. My original idea was simply to moderate the TV forum but I think Shawn and I meshed together very well so I became an Admin then when he stepped back because he got too busy, the Chief Admin role. I wo

  2. I want thank @Water Bottle for everything he has done over the years, and for trusting me with this endeavor!! I am literally walking into the Ford dealership to buy my Mach E right now, so I will write up a nice post in a couple hours. But, tl;dr: 😂😂😘😘

  4. Yeah, I saw internal numbers from a major studio that have it going $68m+ for the weekend based on numbers from today and the preview, but let's wait for ACTUAL numbers and not just a Deadline half assed "update". Did we forget already that Deadline was the one predicting like a $40m range opening like 24 hours ago?

  5. I was hoping for more response but guess my earlier post is limiting imagination, for Sunday will start with puzzles. Anyhow. SAT SC - $23M Candy - $3.85M FG - $3.25M JC - $1.55M PP - $1.5M

  6. I can't express enough what an incredible victory this weekend is for movie theaters. After 18+ months where everything from the pandemic to negativity to streaming tried to kill it, the industry comes roaring back. Not only is this huge for the headlines of smashing the Labor Day records, but the fact that it might beat out Black Widow is just a shot across the bow of Chapek and his minions at Disney that actively tried to kill theatrical exclusivity. What a victory for Kevin Feige and all the actors, directors and producers that stuck to their guns.

  8. 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

  10. Holy shit quite a few of you need to get a grip. I don't check this forum for 2 hours and we have moved from celebration to "holy shit everything is moving and Eternals is going to PA!!" nonsense again.

  11. Really solid movie that I put on par with the first movie if not better. Sometimes sequels can go overboard with world ending threats or upping the action to ridiculousness but WW1984 keeps it pretty reasonable all things considering. I give props for Jenkins for trying something different. The 80s tone and the awesome soundtrack (Zimmer did an amazing job) made this fun but also hopeful with optimistic messages. Great performances by Pascal and Wiig in particular.

  12. IDK, should you? MORE LIKE: 😇 Hello! Thank you all for this opportunity. I won't front, I'm a little daunted by the whole endeavor. I don't think that's a bad thing. My moderating philosophy is I think we have a phenomenal user base, and I want a lighter touch so people feel free to engage in robust and lively discussions. This place ultimately is about movies and cinema, television and streaming, and it Should. Be. Fun. I am all for Art Gratis Artis, but it's called entertainment. As we have seen through

  13. It is almost December 25 here on the East Coast, so I think it’s time I give out this message. So...been a long 12 months, hasn’t it? I’m not going to pretend I’m a genius for saying this, but I think it’s fair to say 2020 was rough for all of us. We all know the big reasons why, but for our box office hobby, it's an obvious one. We were forced to look at VOD charts to pass the time for most of the year, and the theatrical experience is in the most dire straits it’s ever been. There’s a chance this forum could lose the very thing we used to discuss every day. Some may argue otherwi

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  20. @Borobudur Dear Sir, The tracking thread is an immense resource of this board. And the people in this thread who post numbers do it voluntarily and on their own time. Please do not insult them by implying what they do is a waste of time. Tracking lower number movies is incredibly useful in the long run. Since not everything is going to behave like a big Marvel Event Movie. You have also been banned from the thread for two weeks.

  23. A N Y W A Y I just got back from the theater, and honestly, I think I'm in the best mood I've been since 2019. We drove down to Newington, and it was A REAL THEATER. With stadium style seats, and recliners, and drinks and popcorn that was too expensive and too big for anyone to consume. I rounded the corner and saw the GIANT FLOOR TO WALL SCREEN and cried. Not tear cry, but scream for joy cry. My friend told me she'd never seen me so excited. I was in HEAVEN. We got like SEVEN TRAILERS and I wasn't even mad at it taking so long. OMGZ ETERNALS IN PREMIUM FORMAT. I

  26. Free Guy’s performance is a textbook example of what a movie would never have without theater exclusivity. Word of mouth and headlines about how well it’s doing. It creates a storm of people wanting to see it. The more exclusive it is the more of an event it is. Which ultimately means even better performance when it does come to digital etc as if you didn’t see it you’ll still associate it with success, then buy it/rent it. Day and date is so much more of a here today, gone tomorrow situation. There’s just no comparison. As soon as you hit digital you’re just another comm
