  1. Thanks to deecee, tossing in the actual numbers here...https://deadline.com/2020/07/ghostbusters-sony-independence-day-box-office-relic-spider-man-far-from-home-1202978592/ Roughly $2.3M for Top 10, so no real bump for July 4th, but no decrease, either... Below’s top 10 is based on industry estimates, not studio-reported: 1..Ghostbusters (Sony) 622 theaters, 3-day: $550K, 5-day: $656K/lifetime cume: $243.2M/Wk no. 1 of re-release 2…Jumanji: The Next Level (Sony) 220 (+139) theaters, 3-day: $300K (+230%), lifetime cume: $317.3M/wk. 30 3. Relic (IFC) 69 theaters, 3-day: $282,6K/Wk 1 4..Jurassic Park (Uni) 252 (+20) theaters, 3-day: $235K (+24%),lifetime cume: $404.7M /wk no. 1,413 5..Jaws (Uni) 219 theaters (+56), 3-day: $195K (+57%), lifetime cume: $264.2M/wk. no. 2,351 6..Deadpool (20th) 327 theaters, 3-day: $193K, lifetime cume: $363.1M/wk no. 230 7. Jungle Book (Dis) 392 theaters, 3-day: $171K, lifetime cume: $364.1M/wk no. 221 8…Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Dis), 3-day: $123K, lifetime cume: $936.7M/wk no. 238 9..The Hunt (Uni) 109 (+13) theaters, 3-day: $111K (-26%), cume: $10.6M (revised)/Wk 17 10..My Spy (AMZ) 104 theaters 3-day: $107K, cume: $4.3M/lifetime cume: $307K/Wk 3 [includes $200K Canadian release money from before COVID-19 shutdown].
  2. I think the headline should be "mom tried to murder her daughter 100 different ways, and eventually one worked"...I'm sure she'll be looking at "neglect and abuse resulting in death" charges...
  3. Sorta numbers - https://deadline.com/2020/07/burn-the-record-books-the-post-crisis-movies-will-need-new-ways-to-count-1202977471/ "Talk about box-office drama. As the July 4 weekend unwinds, IFC’sThe Truth might be slugging it out with Homewrecker from Dark Star and The Outpost from Screen Media for the honor of ranking somewhere in the 300s, near IFC’s own Wiener-Dog, among all-time Independence Day performers. (Who can say for sure, as release dates have become as fuzzy as the numbers, and simultaneous on-demand and digital availability clouds the picture?) Meanwhile, a handful of drive-ins are packing them in for catalog films like Zootopia and Jurassic Park. With luck, Zootopia might beat its own past performance, four months after its original release, over the July 4 holiday in 2016."
  4. I'm through Act 1...but yes, he is one of the weakest on stage... Not to the point he actively detracts from the play...but he's sure not adding to it...
  5. There are 1100 spots open as of last weekend (out of what Deadline said was 5900 or so)...split about 1/2 drive in and 1/2 not, with drive in driving about 75-90% of DOM revenue on weekends... So, it's roughly 20% open...but with decreased seating capacities and decreased numbers of showings, it is probably only 2-2.5% of normal theater ticket capacity...
  6. I'd actually go with the Washington Wild Horses...there are 2 famous groups, 1 on the Maryland side and 1 on the Virginia side...perfect for the area... Beautiful, tough, and wild - seems like football:)... https://www.nps.gov/asis/learn/nature/horses.htm
  7. My area is creating pop up drive in after pop up drive in now this summer (3 news ones this week already) - no idea how they report box office, or if they report box office, but they have decided that they will be very affordable and very active...tickets aren't on sale til July 8 (with movies that 1st weekend), so I don't know what they mean by "affordable" and "active" yet... If one of them were to get any new content...or a director's cut that is so far unseen, I think I'd be there if they are really "affordable"... Big chains have big parking lots...at some point, they are gonna need to get on board this trend or figure something out...
  8. That would probably actually be Onward... Although if either gets a Chinese release, maybe they won't take the crown...
  9. Another option - a cat:). Most people would say a dog, but cats are wildly self sufficient, almost no work, and yet always there when you feel a little lonely:)...
  10. Do you have a neighbor you can "bubble" with...so you're not alone, but not going out with tons of people, either?
  11. Not that it's comparable, but when my dad was terminal, my brother tried to push up his wedding date and just go to the justice of the peace, so that my dad could attend...and my dad said he'd do no such thing, and he and his spouse would have the wedding they always wanted. My dad was not around for my brother's wedding in person (but he was in spirit), but he really did help make sure it was everything his kid wanted... The bride's mom not being able to attend in person is bad...but I'm sure she'd understand if it meant her daughter was getting married to a great guy... PS - and since we are in the 21st century, she could probably be in virtual form, watching the whole thing from her chair, if someone was creative or tech savvy enough:)...
  12. See, that falls in the "stupidest ever" category...he probably got an enormous viral load from all of his "not a good idea...ummm...ever" actions as far as germs...I mean, sharing cups with complete strangers over and over - who does that at a bar? (Okay, I grew up in the "watch your own drink in a bar to prevent roofies", so maybe guys didn't have that kinda "keep your drink to yourself" ingrained)... And at 30...if he was in a frat and 22, I'd maybe be a little more sympathetic, but by 30, you're supposed to have moved on from a little of the frat house stupidity...maybe not all of it, but some of it...and reading that, he hasn't budged from it... Okay, mom getting off her soap box now...
  13. That should help the restaurant industry a lot in NYC...I'm glad they are embracing safety with creativity...that's gotta be the plan going forward:)... We've all talked "new normal" but a lot of places haven't really all gotten on board adopting that (it's usually either nothing or everything as normal - both not really helpful)...and if they do, it can only help in so many different ways...
  14. If you live there, suggest the city pass an emergency ordinance to allow restaurants to use parking lots or any adjacent sidewalk (or even adjacent street lanes for use if they can close the streets/alleys without too much traffic issue)...that plan has worked very well in my county, which has reopened indoor dining, but still gets most folks to use outdoor dining (keeping indoor clientele so low that spacing is ginormous)...
  15. My county reported its 1st zero death day...and has had almost no new cases 2 days in a row. Amazing how big the USA is...
