  1. Uh, dang, this seems like it's gonna need a complicated formula:)... Although, how's about No 55 + 52 pages + 48 jokers for 155 total which would be $15.5M:)...or 8% off Sunday... See, this is how you use optimism to solve the puzzle:)... PS - I'm not really thinking it's my number...but it's good to dream...and to solve the puzzle in a straightforward way:)...
  2. At least their whole division is awful...somehow, Dallas is also forgetting they had a game today:)...
  3. So are $4 tickets...every non-Disney kid movie that went the discount route overperformed this year...and the ones that didn't, well, didn't... See Abominable vs Addams Family for the latest example...having seen Addams Family, I'm sure Abonimable is better, but not better enough for me to spend full price for that vs sale price for AF... PS - The great spring example was Wonder Park vs Missing Link...
  4. Huh...I think I liked Hotel Transylvania a little more than you (although I agree with varying goodness across the movies)... It's less over-the-top wacky and less frenetic than that trilogy...and less laugh out loud moments for kids...if that helps:)...
  5. So, I saw the highest grossing opening film of the weekend today...and it's okay. Addams Family isn't gonna be all that memorable by next year, nor is it all that great, but it does hit the spots it needs to hit - very spookly done, nice hits of comedy that you only catch if you're paying attention (ala, adults), and enough wackiness and halloweeness for kids without an off-putting or jack-hammered delivered message (it gets close on this 2nd point, but manages to have enough different things it wants to say that it moves off before it becomes annoying:)... Lurch stole the show for me...I loved his imagining... So, now the family grades - we have 5 recommend and 1 NOT recommend (yes, the spouse continues his "being tough on the family movies":)... Me - B- - Just good enough to make me happy I paid the Atom deal...just funny and spooky enough to make me happy to be there Spouse - C - It didn't sell him Oldest Teen Girl - B - She liked it, and found it pretty darn funny (she was old enough to catch the grown up stuff) Younger Teen Girl - B - Also liked it Oldest Boy - A+ - Nothing offended this kid, so back to his normal grade - he loved it Youngest Boy (my burgeoning director who now watches old classic DVDs EVERY DAY) - B- - Secretly, I think he loved it more than this, but he's trying to be a critic now, so his grade:). And for bonus, we watched the previews - outside of Jumanji (for all) and Playing with Fire (the youngest, who has loved John Cena forever, and is in the age range for stupid boy fun), NOTHING else spoke to anyone in my family. My kids were actively making fun of Arctic Dogs, Playmobil, and Maleficent...although they just said Spies in Disguise is a pass, but not horrible (which is funny, b/c I don't hate that...but I'm not paying for it, if they aren't interested:).
  6. Ways you know this is an awesome box office weekend...you come to this thread before you even finish your morning coffee...and then get so excited giving out likes, you hit the wrong buttons, instead! Coffee, I need to finish you before getting back to my like button for the day:)...
  7. Since the California power shutdowns were brought up, how many theaters are affected there? I mean, I'd think the open ones near shutdown areas would actually get mobbed...but I wasn't sure if it also closes a bunch that normally perform decently... (This is me flailing for a reason not to trust our board, b/c well, I trust our board...and go $60M+ weekend, Joker!:)
  8. I have my tickets for tomorrow morning, so hopefully I find the movie a little more redeeming (or my kids do:)...I am a sucker for seasonal comedies, so if it delivers something spooky or funny for my $4 ticket, I'll be happy enough:)...
  9. Even before release, folks were questioning the 2x full leg thoughts...I mean, that was thought to be stupid low...not impossible, but not likely, unless Joker was totally divisive...
  10. Not so hasty there:)...Monday day threads had some folks saying legs were definitely looking likely (glancing at myself right now:)...we're 3 days later, and it seems likelier and likelier... Although, maybe it's not fair, b/c I based my thoughts on my non-movie-going spouse dying to see it, and bugging me almost every day this week...if he's on board, legs are on board (at least as good as a non-summer/Xmas super:)...
  11. Those are the 2 biggest chains offered on Atom, right? So, the 2 that would benefit the most from the possibly 80 million floating codes (if all TMobile people did their Tuesday stuff) for the $4 tickets...enormous, enormous amounts of those won't be redeemed (probably less than 1%), but enough to make those 2 chains look good:)... But, I'm still actually hoping it does really well...and I'm seeing it sometime this weekend...but these numbers don't excite me yet, until I see if it's another "if I have the cheap ticket, I'll be there, but if not, I'll pass" movie...
  12. It seems like a subscriber-based movie. If you see it cheap, you'll be there (thus, high Imax/PLF, since that's included at AMC). And if you can't, you'll see it on Netflix.
  13. We are looking to see this Sunday morning...I think:)... We have a birthday to celebrate this weekend, so we're trying to schedule around birthday festivities and movies (and I'm still waiting to see if I'll get a combo offer on top of the TMobile deal, since presales aren't spectacular at my locals:)... But I don't feel like cheap Tuesday, so it will be this weekend:)...
  14. I can confirm - it's REALLY annoying! It's gonna make me split my purchases on Tuesdays when I get an Atom deal, since it's not like I can't have two pages open at once:)...
  15. See, I'm gonna disagree (before I read everyone else's posts that already make these points)... It's a gut feeling, but I feel the really strong Sunday/Monday really show that movie goers were avoiding opening Friday/Saturday madness, and were willing to wait to see the movie when they felt the "craziness" died down a little...2nd weekend will be even better for those fans, and it's a holiday weekend, so we could see an abnormally strong drop for a supers movie. PS - Now Thursday night was the die hards...and they were going hell or high water. But Friday and Saturday nights tend to have a more GA flavor, and those are the folks I'm talking about:)... PPS - I won't see this til 3rd weekend, so I can't comment if the movie quality will also help spread a WOM to bring folks in...although these boards tend to be displaying a "positive" direction for that...
