  1. Not sure the legs matter too much. It’s an amazing worldwide total already, especially given COVID problems. Plenty of momentum left to continue building the numbers in a big way.
  2. It’s already there due to all the COVID problems in 2020 and 2021. Gigantic opening and headed for solid legs over the holidays. It’s all icing on the cake in this COVID environment.
  3. That is pretty normal for these mega-openers on their first Discount Tuesday. Jurassic World dropped 5%. Force Awakens dropped 7%. Avengers Endgame dropped 10%. If the drop today is 20%, not sure what to make of it. But it's all icing on the cake after the gigantic opening.
  4. It's having an awesome run even for normal times, but it's even more impressive given the COVID problems still floating around. Legendary run!
  5. You had to figure there was going to be a pretty tough limit on maximum box office right now due to COVID. Lot of people simply will not go at the moment. The fact this movie piled up almost $300M in 4 days is pretty stunning, given what we've seen in the domestic market the last 2 years.
  6. That and the fact you are bound to have a limit at the box office these days. Many people ain’t going back to theaters right now, no matter what the media is saying on COVID. Given the challenges of the market over the last 2 years, I think any movie opening to $260M is pretty stunning. Everything it does the rest of the way is just icing on the cake for Sony.
  7. Spidey needs a 23% drop on Sunday for a $250M weekend. Seems very doable. Force Awakens dropped 11% on Sunday.
  8. I'm curious to see what happens with the legs. There is still a segment of population that will be hesitant to visit theaters with COVID still floating around. But you also have way more people at home these days than the last time we had a mega opener. You have a much larger potential audience available during weekdays to attend movies.
  9. 2002 Spidey benefited from 40 years of hype, mixed with being a hopeful movie right after the 9/11 attacks. The new Spidey benefits from the nostalgia angle bringing back characters/actors from the earlier Spidey films, mixed with people saying "enough is enough" with the COVID lockdowns.
  10. I see this thing is heading for a huge weekend. That's extremely impressive after COVID killed the box office the last couple years.
  11. Disney is evil IMHO. Ton of monopolistic behavior with the movie business over the last 10-20 years. This monopolistic tendency can also be seen with ESPN, which has thrown its weight around too damn much in college football. I would not mind if the Mouse House completely implodes.
