  1. That reporter must have mixed something up. This is impossible. Looking at the Arclights, in this case the best attended, Sherman Oakes, MP is selling well, but this sold 60 tickets for the main show on wednesday and barely anything going into the weekend. TLJ had sold out multiple shows and hundreds of tickets at that point.
  2. Japan alone should be good to get it close to the $600m-Mark. Also, more than $5m are expected from Germany alone. $10-15m from the US should also be doable. This should be able to get to around $625m. At least it didn't pull a complete Prince Kaspian...
  3. Distributors immediately need to stop living in those self-fulfilling prohecies. No, the weekends after TG are not neccessarily bad to open a movie. They are bad, because you open third-rate movies most of the time. Instead,, we are wasting 2 weeks of capacities in movie theaters and open 11! movies in not even 2 weeks from here on. I will repeat it again and again: There are no bad release dates, only movies, people don't want to see. Sony should have known they have a big winner on their hands with Spider Man and opened it earlier.
  4. This brings back the good old tradition of teaser Trailers. One of the greatest Trailers in recent memories. Makes me want to see this so much more. Well done, Marvel!
  5. A musical that has very little actual storytelling? What a surprise. Seriously, has he ever seen a Musical? They never have a big story to tell.
  6. Isn't that 65/100m for Aquaman quite unrealistic? National Treasure 2 did 31% of its 5D-result on monday and tuesday in 2007. Now they expect Aquaman to be more backloaded, even though its friday will be inflated because of previews being more popular?
  7. Very happy for Sony. After years of suffering, things finally seem to work out for them again more often. I orininally thought, the style might not connect with the Mainstream Audiences, but with those reviews on top, I can see this one break out big time now.
  8. Remember Jurassic World and Inside Out? If both movies have high first choice interest, people will go to the theater two weeks in a row, as simple as that. It's only a problem, if it's an either or decicsion, and I don't think that's the case here. Having said that, I don't think they are a perfect match in terms of target audiences. Pikachu should skew quite a bit younger than Avengers f.E. JW and IO, the more I think about it, are a pretty good comparison, though IO might skew more female than Pika.
  9. While I have to say it looks gorgeous, it didn't touch my heart like I expected it to and like the first BatB Teaser did.
  10. They said, there was no way, a movie would open to over $100m in December...well... There are no bad release dates. There are only bad movies. And the distributors finally woke up. They always said, September was dead after school is back in business. Well...along came Sony Animation and later "IT".

    Thursday Numbers: ASIB stays over $1M

    I actually had the movie at $50m/$220m in my monthly preview. Might (and did on OW) come in a bit lower in the end, but who cares?

    Weekend Thread ~ The Grinch 67m+ per DHD

    I'm with you there, feels like a heartwarming and typical November release that might be the family alternative set in the real world, just like "Wonder" or "The Blind Side".

    Weekend Thread ~ The Grinch 67m+ per DHD

    Coco did $2,3m last year... HT3 did $2,6m in July. I'm not sure what to think of that number.

    Thursday Numbers: ASIB stays over $1M

    So ASIB might reach $200m even before the Oscars play a part. Quite impressive.
  15. Every site? What about Variety, Hollywood Reporter, Deadline? It's mostly on gossip sites it seems and even some of those kept the title spoiler-free. It's not up to you to decide. You spoilered me, that's one spoiler too much and it wouldn't hurt you, to be a little more careful posting potentially spoilerish material.
