  1. I'm glad that it has really fine legs in Germany :). Who would have thought that? So Germany should soon be the #2 market for this movie so far (it's still #3 here behind Bond and a new German family film this weekend). I saw that Blade Runner had a 2M true weekend in Japan, maybe Dune had just less previews? However, if even Blade Runner managed it to have good legs there (10.5M total result) which was overall not the case, then I have high hopes for Dune. Does anybody know about the audience reactions in Japan?
  2. The second trend: #1 NTTD 700k #2 Die Schule der magischen Tiere 300k #3 Dune 100k #4 BB2 90k #5 Es ist nur eine Phase, Hase 62.5k #6 The Ice Road 32.5k #7 Die Pfefferkörner 27.5k ... The Last Duel 20k Supernova 11k Fly 10k
  3. First let's see if the walk-ups are really that bad for TLD. I also think due to the trailer people could get the impression that this is a film which you better watch at home and if you don't like the story or tone you can just stop watching it. By the way, the recently mentioned Braveheart is somehow still an uplifting film. Which is strange enough because in which film is the hero (and his wife) killed and it's still no film that brings you down. They did something right back then (with several films).
  4. The Last Duel counted today at 11am EST for tomorrow: NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): today it said „no showtimes announced yet“ but yesterday it had 4 shows and 8 sold tickets, maybe cancelled? Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 14 (5 showtimes) Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 5 (7 showtimes) Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 0 (2 showtimes) Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11): 13 (4 showtimes) San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 48 (4 showtimes) LA (AMC Universal): 44 (3 showtimes) Total tickets sold in 6 theaters: 124. Up 29% since yesterday. Comps: Stillwater had on Thursday 72 sold tickets for Friday in the
  5. Ran out of likes again but I think you're absolutely right with the streaming hit and first overlooked film gem. I think historical epics that are done in a right way and just great films still have good chances, at least WW. Maybe Kingdom of Heaven had not the most attractive story (IMO it was ok but nothing that I have to watch several times). And the two other mentioned films were quite the opposite of "classic" medieval films. Robin Hood mixed several centuries and King Arthur was filmed very "modern" (the cuts etc.). But I also think that the budgets shouldn't be too high (for sure u
  6. Liked it better when I watched it a second time (now I saw that I'm not the first person with that impression). Maybe I expected too much when I saw it for the first time. IMO the film is ok (6.5/10). PS: Didn't know that a 4th film exists. I saw 2 & 3 not long ago and yes, that one with the group wasn't bad either.
  7. The Last Duel counted today at 11am EST for Friday October 15: NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 8 (4 showtimes) Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 8 (5 showtimes) Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 5 (3 showtimes) Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 0 (2 showtimes) Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11): 11 (4 showtimes) San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 26 (4 showtimes) LA (AMC Universal): 38 (3 showtimes) Total tickets sold in 7 theaters: 96. Up 110% since Monday. Comps: Stillwater had on Wednesday of its release week 41 sold tickets for Friday in 6 theaters (without NY so here vs 88) and The Green Knight had on
  8. The Last Duel counted today at 8am EST (so a bit earlier) for Thursday, October 14: NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): so far no showtimes Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 7 (1 showtimes) Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 1 (2 showtimes) Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 0 (1 showtime) Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11): 3 (2 showtimes) San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 26 (2 showtimes) LA (AMC Universal): 37 (6 showtimes) Total tickets sold in 6 theaters: 74. The Last Duel counted today at 8am EST for Friday, October 15: NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): so far no showtimes Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 5 (2 showtime
  9. Rth is of course right. The final trend: #1 NTTD 925k (and Mark_G tends to choose the conservative number) #2 Dune 120k #3 Die Pfefferkörner 37.5k #4 SC 30k 5 Paw Patrol 27.5k
  10. So much for my 75M prediction . Next week it's Halloween Kills' and The Last Duel's turn but today - due to the reports here that the presales still look good - I counted Dune at 12pm EST for Thursday, October 21: NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 70 (1 showtime) Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 189 (6 showtimes) Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): so far no showtimes Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): so far no showtimes Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11): 38 (2 showtimes) San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 443 (4 showtimes) LA (AMC Universal): 602 (6 showtimes) Total tickets sold in 5 theaters: 1.342. Up 2
  11. I mostly agree (that movies with a serious tone are at the moment not too popular) and also think this will be the main reason why The Last Duel will have a hard time at the US-box office (I think it looks very good and atmospheric and it plays in another century but with modern problems). But when it comes to Dune, I'm not so sure. A few days ago I joked with my brother that if moviegoers search for real escapism they should see a movie playing on another planet. I mean LotR also was far from a comedy but was settled in another time/world (Idk how to describe it better) and that worked v
  12. Yes, I think those reviews didn't refer to D. Craig's Bond movies which were always pretty serious. 22.5M on Friday sounds better. I should have waited till I say it underperformed. The first posts I read here were that its OW could be around 50-60M but with that Friday it should at least cross the 60M mark (I think).
  13. Almost no changes in the second trend, unfortunately a little bit in the wrong direction: #1 NTTD 900k #2 Dune 125k/1.25M total admissions including Sunday #3 Die Pfefferkörner 35k #4 SC 32.5k #5 Paw Patrol 22.5k The sunny weather on Saturday and Sunday is mostly to blame that NTTD doesn't have an (even) better hold. By contrast the weekdays were pretty grey which probably helped the movies, e.g. Dune must have had ca. 65k admissions from Monday to Wednesday (no Bond total numbers reported so far).
  14. Many theories were already mentioned in this thread why NTTD underperformed and I wouldn't disagree. But at least to me there's another factor: I don't know about the reception of Spectre in the USA (looked at RT: Only 61% Audience Score and 3.5/5) but here it was, at least for a Bond movie, not very well liked. Now the new movie is also rated around 7/10 which is, after the high expectations, just disappointing. Also not helping IMO is the mentioning that there's (again) some darkness/tristesse in it and that it lacks the Lightheartedness of earlier 007 movies.
