  6. I haven't seen the movie, but a good lesson for all of us (myself included) for any movie is that people have differences in opinion. Your worst movie ever made could be someone else's enjoyable time. I personally find it more productive and enjoyable to focus on box office and numbers, and when I do talk about movies, to highlight those I love, rather than harp on movies I don't. It saves me from a lot of negative energy. Cheers. Peace, Mike
  7. That could definitely be the case. It is hard to say, as MT is a rolling update of the last 24 hours of ticket sales. I find it difficult to translate what MT means with such specificity. I'm curious to see where it ends tonight, where it is tomorrow morning, and what it translates to for Thursday previews and Friday proper for JW2. Peace, Mike

    The Buzz and Tracking thread is closed, but I feel like we need these MT numbers written down somewhere for historical records sake, in case we have two huge back-to-back films open again in the future: MT (4:20PM EDT): Incredibles 2: 45.4% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: 39.8% Ocean's 8: 2.9% Tag: 1.9% Solo: A Star Wars Story: 1.1% At the rate that Jurassic World 2 and Incredibles 2 are converging, Jurassic World 2 will take the #1 spot in 2 to 3 hours. Peace, Mike

    Black Panther has virtually achieved a 3.5 multiplier (sits at a 3.46 multiplier, will finish at 3.47 if it hits $700M). But I acknowledge that is an exceptional case, and not the norm. The Dark Knight also achieved a really strong 3.38 multiplier, even if not quit a 3.5 multiplier. Animated films tend to have stronger multipliers. Even given the more adult skewing nature of Incredibles 2, I still think it is possible for it to hit a 3.5 multiplier. It has the benefit of summer weekdays and a Labour Day weekend boost into September. Dory hit a 3.6 multiplier off of a $135M opening weekend, which may not be over $150M but is still quite substantial. And it did so with another animated film opening over $100M in its fourth weekend, which hurt it quite a bit that weekend with such direct competition. All I'm saying is it's possible. We're not even into the second weekend yet - let's see how Incredibles 2 fares moving forward. I imagine it will have some strong drops after this weekend. Peace, Mike
  12. $26.9-27M for Incredibles 2 is incredible! Bigger first Tuesday than Infinity War, Avengers, Black Panther, The Last Jedi, and Jurassic World. And as @aabattery points out, it is the 6th best Tuesday of all time. The only better grosses are Tuesday openers or Star Wars films, with two of the three better Star Wars Tuesdays being their second Tuesday in the midst of Christmas holidays. These are huge, huge numbers for any film, let alone an animated film. Peace, Mike
  13. Not only is it Tuesday, but the largest animated film of all time is open for business. Incredibles 2 will have a bigger Tuesday than Avengers, Infinity War, Black Panther, The Last Jedi, and Jurassic World. We have to remember that MovieTickets is a relative measure of tickets sold (based on the percentage of tickets sold), not actual numbers of tickets sold. Peace, Mike
  14. Huge first Monday gross for an animated film. Whether $23.9M or $24.1M, the ~54% drop seems right after a 10.8% Sunday hold. It is commensurate to Toy Story 3 dropping 51% after a 13.5% Sunday hold. Peace, Mike
  15. I so hope you’re right, but that seems unlikely to me. Finding Dory dropped 24% on the Sunday before the 43.5% Monday drop. Toy Story 3, on the other hand, dropped only 13.5% on Sunday and then 51.3% on Monday. I think Incredibles 2 is more likely to drop around Toy Story 3’s drop, given the strong Father’s Day hold (10.8% Sunday drop). I hope I’m proven wrong, though! Peace, Mike
