  1. Is this the appropriate thread for posts about how poor Shazam’s numbers are, @grim22?

    Shazam! OS Thread - 163.9M OS - 258.8M WW

    That is not a good drop, and the only market where it has to open is an Asian market, where it is performing the worst.
  3. “ShAzAm Is NoT GoiNg To drOP 50% Or MorE BecAusE It Is a FamilY MoVIE”
  4. Posters are comparing Shazam to animation projects now? That is silly, but it is even more silly when you see that The Boss Baby’s, which opened at about the same time, first Wednesday is bigger than Shazam’s. Shazam is actually playing as your average fanboy superhero movie.
  5. A Dumbo drop on Monday with a slightly smaller Dumbo increase on Tuesday. Mmh. The weekend box office is going to be intriguing.
  6. Diversity demos for Captain Marvel are broad: 47% Caucasian, 21% Hispanic, 16% African-American and 12% Asian. Definite recommend is still high for the Anna Boden/Ryan Fleck-directed MCU title at 68%, with 58% of the audience saying it met their expectations and 35% saying it exceeded.
  7. That refutes what I have been stating how? “While general audiences enjoyed Billy Batson at 4 stars, 61% recommend.” The general moviegoers, who are the overwhelming majority of the audience, have way less enthusiasm about the movie.
  8. It it is one of the lowest rated games according to Deadline, so it is not a matter of the game being bigger. I have not glanced at Captain America’s breakdown, but Shazam’s is mostly male and the overwhelming majority not being kids. Isn’t that the average moviegoing makeup of your average superhero movie? What about that is supposed to be so disparate with respect to who sees Captain America? You have a great argument as to why the Tuesday increase will Ben bigger. You are the only one who has brought up the Tuesday number, though. Dude, the percentage breakdown is only 25% for parents and kids according to Deadline. The highest demographic is actually men and teenage boys, which usually is the case with superhero movies. You are able to scream about it being a kids movie all you want, but the breakdown is not that of a superhero movie.
  9. I stated that they probably like the movie, but many are not recommending it. It probably got an A Cinemascore because they were entertained by it. You can be entertained by something while believing that that thing is not really worth anyone else’s time. Captain Marvel has a 68% recommend with adults just as a recent superhero comparison.
  10. The NCAA Basketball Championship excuse is not a legitimate one because Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s first Monday also happened to be the same day as the championship, and that movie did not have as hard as a drop. That drop is giving Dumbo vibes to be honest. People might like the movie, but only 60% of adults actually recommend the movie, which is pretty low for a superhero movie.

    You are being way too honest, so you are going to be labeled a troll and whatever.
  12. It is funny how I am warned for "flame wars" while you go bringing up posts from a day ago. No, the $150,000,000 is the overseas estimate if that is what you are trying to suggest. I have already recognized that it came in below estimates and just hit $100,000,000 overseas, so why are you pressing the same issue?
  13. You are right. It came in at $102,000,000 in estimates, way below the $150,000,000 that Deadline projected a few days ago. It really is such an over performer.
  14. The hoopla over Unplanned the previous weekend really makes no sense. A $6,000 PTA in 1,000 theaters is not terrible, but it is not anything extraordinary either. The drop really is not surprising.
  15. One is overseas and the other is the global total, so try not to push any fake news.
