  1. But Boxtrolls did get a big US release...and they still had Big Hero 6 and How To Train Your Dragon 2...so 3 spots were for GA friendly fare...since DM3 and Cars 3 aren't good enough for nominations this year (and lets not even talk Smurfs 3 but not 3, Nut Job Never, and Emoji), some mainstream movies have to take their spots...I don't think Boss Baby or Leap are gonna get the spots over Lego or CU...so that leaves Coco, Ferdinand, the Star, My Little Pony, and Ninjago (did I forget any?) to have 3 of those movies take one or both of those 2 out...
  2. I would actually stay home Saturday night to watch that exact skit if I knew it was coming...that would be worth watching even if she flailed the rest of the night:)...
  3. Yeah, but the animated category tends to be the one with movies average GA have heard of...it gets them to watch the show. I can't imagine, if Coco's bad, that we'll get 5 foreign/independent films in that category. GA usually knows at least 3-4 of the nominees...
  4. Amazingly, Spidey still hasn't made my discount theater - that theater is getting 3 news movies this weekend - Girls Trip, Atomic Blonde, and Emoji (and punting Dark Tower after only one week and finally letting Baby Driver and Cars 3 go)...I'm not sure the theater will get Spidey til Columbus Day weekend, the way we're going...the fact it's still milking WW probably also plays into the delay...both supers movies did/will hit this theater very late in their runs...
  5. I think Lego Bats and Captain Underpants are looking at spots, just by the critical acclaim they got...after that, it will almost certainly be Coco, unless that movie's a disaster...and then 2 open spots for the taking...
  6. Probably - so far my local has sold zero and my mall has sold 6 tickets...so its previews are probably gonna be so low as to not bother being reported...it can still rebound a little on typical Fri/Sat night horror, but unless Moviepass holders get bored, this is looking bad (too bad that probably means you'll win our Casino bet, but then again, mother! still could go low, too...although that low would be hard:)...
  7. I like the image...and I can't help but notice that even on the edge, WW seems to be the one most spot-lighted and her face doesn't get the light blur like Flash's does...maybe it's just my eyes, but I don't think so and I don't think that's a coincidence:)...
  8. Tomb Raider UNDER 100M

    May change my mind later with actual previews...but reboot of a franchise no longer cared about in the gaming industry like it was...Jolie vs Vikander as the lead...seems like an easy IN.
  9. Oh please no...him not in it is probably worth a $25M BO bonus all by itself...nails on chalkboard isn't in this movie, and that is a great thing to the "BvS was awful, WW was good" crowd:)... Weren't we saying that all the BvS folks were coming anyway, so no need to have him in for them:)...
  10. Release Dates Was the Problem for Low Summer BO

    I'd like to say the summer flopped b/c it relied so heavily on tired sequels...the breadth of fresh air movies were the ones that brought most of the light to the BO... It might be a lesson for 2018 and future summers...
  11. I'm going to agree with you with a small caveat... To hit its BO potential, Justice League has to be at least as good a quality movie as the coming Thor movie. Theaters like to keep a supers movie around (just like they are keeping Spiderman around now), but with all the Christmas movies releasing, only one of these movies will probably get the fat-fat holiday late legs BO bonus. Justice League has the "comes out later" advantage to keep its screens, but as we also saw with Spidey, later arriving movies can be punted if the earlier one is performing better... But I am much more hopeful after reading grim22's post that JL will be a good enough movie to live on through New Year's in a large quantity of theaters. And if it does that, it will have both its enormous OW and Thanksgiving week and then its bonus late legs to carry it to a very high number. I could easily see $500M for a great movie...if it's great, it's a movie my mom will want to see, my spouse and I will want to see, and my kids will want to see, so it's got multi-generational all over it...and if it has an uplifting tone, vs the dark and dreary ones, it will play very family friendly the whole season...and playing family friendly is how Star Wars 7 got its ungodly high BO figures...this won't be Star Wars 7 (since Star Wars 8 will be slicing into its legs), but it doesn't have to be to still put up an awesome BO number...
  12. My 2 locals (we have schools off Friday for Lord knows what, so we are probably overselling everything here Thursday night/Friday)... 1st local Kingsman 58/620ish (2 screens, 4 total showings) Friend Request 0/120 (1 screen, 2 showings) 2nd local Kingsman - 103/330ish (1 screen, 2 showings) Stronger - 0/100 (1 screen, 2 showings) This 2nd local is getting Kingsman on 2 screens, Lego Ninjago on 2 screens, and Stronger on 1 (and passing on Friend Request)- with my locals not matching, I will up Lego movie's "max based on my area's estimates:)"...it's surprising my locals didn't match - they almost always do on new releases screen allocation of the biggies...but I guess they can't decide what end is up for Ninjago either:)...and my 1st local did book its 12th screen with ANOTHER Indian indie...guess it was a struggle to get it in, but they did get it...
  13. IN. The DOM BO trend for sequels in 2016-2017 is to be below their predecessor's DOM BO...there are a few outliers (like John Wick 2 in winter and GOTG 2 this summer), but this tends to be the safe call.
  14. Box Office Theory's Most Anticipated Films

    1. Justice League 2. Murder on the Orient Express 3. Star Wars 8 4. Avengers 3 5. Black Panther 6. Aquaman 7. Deadpool 2 8. Wrinkle in Time 9. Fantastic Beasts 2 10. Ready Player One EDIT: Yes, I know Aquaman and Beasts are technically a little more than 12 months away, but I put my most likely desired movies...if you have to replace them, Incredibles 2 and probably Mission 6 would go in place #9 and #10, but I may not even see them in theaters, so I can't say I'm waiting for them:)...
  15. Box Office Casino

    Wow, the bad and the worse:)...since I've got no more open bets, now that mother!'s bet concluded, I'll TAKE this bet. Friend Request will beat mother! for the 9/22-9/24 weekend (yes, I'm betting on the Thursday previews putting me over:)...
