  1. I'd also like to offer my congrats on the century for this one. Very well deserved. I tracked this quite closely in excel and it's trajectory was fabulous. Interesting to see how backloaded it wound up being; people have said it should've opened between 3,000 - 4,000 theatres but in retrospect the slower roll out and ramp-up looks smart to me. Hard to argue with a 4.2 multi. With Japan coming it will get another century overseas. Definitely a hit.
  2. Boom! Arrival adding +1,000 theatres. There's life left to this run!
  3. I know on the $100 mil front everybody's looking at the failure of Passengers but how about the success of Arrival? It'll be at $95.5 mil after this weekend, inches from the 4x multi. A BP nom and a modest re-expansion will be enough to get it to the century.
  4. If The Visit was Shyamalan's first solid single in years then Split appears to be his first extra base. Never write off a legacy too soon. It will be interesting to see what kind of budgets he's entrusted with in future.
  5. I think this is behaving better than we thought it would a month ago. Based on Flight, I thought it's "natural" progression would land between 91 and 95 mil. It's going to get just shy of 96 mil "natural". A BP nom will clearly bump it to the century. This is doing fine.
  6. Lowest grossing 2016 movie you've seen

    High-Rise was the lowest grosser I believe. A so-so flick. Wasn't entirely sure what it wanted to be.
  7. This. I got my bipolar diagnosis six years. There's a handful of people in the celebrity world that have helped provide comfort, laughter, and perspective with the condition. None more so than Carrie Fisher.
  8. Wow. Bombs away. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, failures like this confirm the death of the movie star thesis for me. If Pratt and Lawrence aren't worth $100m then I think the idea of a truly bankable star is largely gone.
  9. @Alli Too soon to declare you a winner here but kudos on swimming against the tide and calling this low. Early numbers suggest this could be a real drubbing.
  10. Monday's Numbers

    Arrival drops 28%... from TWO weeks ago. Ha!
  11. Arrival at $1.6 mil Friday. If it gets the 3.5x multiplier it got last week then $5.6 mil or a 23% drop for the weekend. Yessss.
  12. Moana at $4.147 mil. On target. Almost exactly $18 mil with last weekend's multiplier.
  13. La La Land Over Chicago Adjusted Club (243M)

    Reading over my middle America comment and it sounds more bitter than I intended. I have nothing against LLL and I'll take your word for it that it's profile is growing. I did say it would do a century and that would be a fine accomplishment. But translating limited release PTAs into a $250 mil gross is an enormous leap. I just don't yet see the water cooler awareness on this one. Time will tell. (Sorry to quote you twice. I just spent 20 minutes fiddling with the quote function and have given up.)
