  1. I think someone was mentioning when we would see the 1st 100% increase on Tuesday...I think Angry Birds 2 could be a good 1st candidate...even more 1st days of school Monday is gonna lead to a very low Monday gross...and the slight Fandango deal plus cheap Tuesday just might get it done... PS - Regal's subscription plan excluded families just like the rest...so it's more and more of an effect on one-off mental purchasing thoughts (ie - I can see all this for "free", but I gotta pay $14 to bring my 1 kid to see this...yeah, I'll pass and rent it from Amazon for $2 next month...or maybe Amazon and Netflix will post it for me:)...the only "kid" movies going high are the ones that are NOT kid movies...Toys 4 - huge adult base...Aladdin - huger adult base...Supers - hugest adult base...adults feel a little better paying to bring junior vs a babysitter for something the adult likes...but wasting the time for the kid movie - nah! Movie theaters better figure this out soon, b/c the effect this year has been gargantuan...even going back to the winter/spring movies...either they are gonna have to not skew movies to kids (thereby ruining their future fan base and bringing their own destruction), or get family subscription plans, or maybe rethink pricing for these movies...PG and G movies for $5 all day everyday could be a thing:)... PS - AMC's are now doing a concession kid deal for Angry Birds...and Atom is doing BOGO for Blinded by the Light...very last minute promotion to Blinded to try to bring anyone out...maybe it works for an extra million...
  2. Another one I'd have put in the Top 10 (maybe I like funny supers over the really deep, dark ones:)...too low, but glad to see it make the top 30... PS - I think the only dark-ish supers in my top 10 would be The Dark Knight and Avengers: Infinity War (Endgame would not make my Top 10), so maybe our forums choices are a little more somber and darker than mine (I mean, the comics I grew up on were my parents' pristine 50s and 60s DC comics...and those were anything but sad or serious...and now I read Amazing Spider Man, Squirrel Girl, and Nightwing as my top 3 pulls...so I don't read the deepest ones now, either:)...
  3. On Angry Birds Tuesday vs Wednesday...where were the early Aug 3 afternoon sneaks counted? If they dropped into Tuesday, then the Wednesday number is fine for a drop (although not fine for an overall "trying to go high" number)...
  4. Schools going back plus OW cheap Tuesday over...that's totally possible... Probably means it might also be coming for the large weekend drop...although it can hope those back-to-school areas help it on weekends...but that might be tough with Angry Birds also around...
  5. Under Monday, though...so fine, but not anymore than that...
  6. I think your complaint is they are all too low...and I agree:)...
  7. Superman II is the only Superman movie that would have made my list anywhere (probably near the bottom)...I liked it, but I didn't love it (even watching it awhile ago before MCU blew us away:)... It will be interesting if the newer Superman movies exceed it, b/c I don't think any have...all being more flawed than that one:)...
  8. Darn on the new Spideys being so low...I would have gone top 10 on FFH and at least top 20 (or maybe higher) on Homecoming...Tom Holland is just that good, that he literally is the role now...he's gonna be a Peter Parker they probably can't replace for a decade or two when he's all done (ala RDJ as Iron Man)...
  9. Part of me thinks theaters should run an experiment over Labor Day weekend this year... Since theaters will be stocked with poor performing films...and nothing is opening wide except Don't Let Go...why not make the whole weekend "cheap Tuesday"...see if the lure of $5 tickets to any seat at any show can bring a blow out to the end of summer...bring back Toys 4, Spidey, and Aladdin for expansions and give everything partial screens (if you're a small to midsize) and just see if you have a price point to lure folks in for anything... It would be like the $5 Booksmart experiment, but on a little grander scale...rather than a single movie offered only at a single time at few theaters, this could be a giant "what the market will pay" experiment for either old movies (the 3 re-expansions) or non-blockbuster ones...
  10. The Art of Racing in the Rain also is part...it's only 1% less on the jump:)...
  11. 5...and the number that want to take over changes as the decisions move one way or another (don't get me started on assisted living vs living with a sibling:)...this is how I somehow ended up with the limited power of attorney now...b/c I won't do anything unless my mom wants it...and that is now driving my siblings bonkers... But that's family drama that I'm literally gonna leave my phone off all day for...I figure another reason my mom gave me power was b/c no sibling lives near me, nor do I live near my mom (nor could she live with me b/c of my house set up and family size, so I'm impartial on all the decisions)...so if I wanna ignore them to keep her wishes, I can...and now I am:)... But let's get back on the comic movie train...I wanna see next up:)...
  12. Yes and no...she was diagnosed with acute kidney failure and stage 3 multiple myeloma...it's gonna be a long road, but the acuteness of the risk is lessened for now...dialysis helped a lot last week (and will be ongoing for months) and chemo starts today...I'll be a little more in and out and distracted this fall, so I'm gonna enjoy the escape and happiness this site provides, b/c when you also have to deal with siblings who all want to control the situation and the decision-making, and a mom not always making the best decisions (or the ones those siblings want), well, let's say, I'm happy to be home for the moment...
  13. My mom got sent to the ER, so I had to go up north and help out, and missed the deadline...sad to see Shazam so low b/c I'd have had it top 25 easily...but I'll be following to see the results just for fun...
  14. On family and average quality movies, I'd count on it...it's the largest sign that the customer base is saying they'll still see movies, but only at certain prices... Thing is, if the industry ever got rid of the Tuesdays, it might fall off a cliff, b/c I'm betting a huge percentage of these Tuesday folks would fall into the "okay, I'll wait for Redbox/Netflix" category and not the "I'll pay more" category...the industry needs to ramp subscriptions to a much higher level to ever wean off these showings...
  15. And it was such a weird decision to move Angry Birds 2 date...my kids watched America Ninja Warrior hyping it this week, and they kept saying Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday:)...as did the Kids Baking Championship on Food Network (yes, somehow I saw 2 product placement shows for this movie this week...and I haven't seen these types in awhile:)... It had to be a "what have we got to lose" decision made in an instant when the opportunity of BTS leaving after Monday (pretty much everywhere, right?) dropped in their lap...
