  1. So the film many predicted would be the biggest bomb of the summer, in its 32nd day of release, is now ahead in the dailies of every single film released in June except for its studio mate released just four days ago. WTF is going on this summer?
  2. Let me tip my hat to everyone back in April or earlier who predicted Aladdin’s fifth weekend would be 20%+ higher than MIB:I’s second weekend. You are the true visionaries we should all respect. Oh wait, nobody saw that coming? What happened to all of the bold and crazy predictions around here?
  3. I don't know what is more hilarious: Aladdin dropping the most in the Top 10 on Sunday (34.1%) or Dark Phoenix dropping the least (15.7%). I think reality will be closer if you were to reverse those numbers.
  4. If someone had an ex who resembled Halle and the mere sight of her brought back bad memories, then I could understand why someone did not find her attractive. Or, if you had been blessed and you have a current gf/wife/partner who is hotter than Halle, then I could understand why you would not find her attractive. Otherwise, Halle is arguably one of the most beautiful women to have ever graced the silver screen.
  5. TS4 delivered a near knock-out punch to TSLOP2. Last Friday, it increased 55.9%. This Friday, it increased only 4.4%. It is going to finish about 60% down from the original TSLOP. Will TSLOP3 head directly to Netflix?
  6. Since people are have fond memories of old Batman films...
  7. The one good thing about almost all of the superhero movies from the past 20 or so years is that they have prevented their largely heterosexual fan base from mistaking their sexual desires with their box office analysis. I just didn’t expect Dark Phoenix to be the movie to mark that turn around. Wonder Woman seemed to have shocked them into mostly silence whereas Captain Marvel bravely reminded them of their incel status. Now Dark Phoenix has opened that Pandora’s Box and we will all suffer for it.
  8. And some people thought Chernobyl would be the only entertainment disaster they would see this month. This is the type of weekend that would produce a lot of reorganizations and firings in most other industries. At least Ma should hit $40M on Sunday and Aladdin (!) continues chugging along toward $300M.
  9. So Endgame appears likely to wind up around $840M domestically before Labor Day and about $840M after the imaginary Labor Day expansion some people believe will be happening.
  10. For those of you in Los Angeles with time on your hands tomorrow night:
