    Classic Conversation, now with added Teen Angst

    So, watched my 1st 2019-released movie in theaters today - The Kid Who Would Be King. Wouldn't have been my 1st choice, but my youngest was the only kid in the world dying to see this...and it was pretty good. As I mentioned to my oldest girls, it was a C movie that became a B movie every time either Merlin showed up on the screen...and in good news, Merlin is in a LOT of the movie. The rest of the cast kinda exists on the screen, but it's a different retelling with a sweet story and the requisite kid movie happy ending, so what's not to like. And that's also what I explained to my girls...they said "how is this 89% on rotten tomatoes?" (Yes, they track this...maybe I rubbed off on them). I said b/c there's nothing not to like in the movie, so everyone liked it, but no one loved it. And that's where I'm at with it. I liked it...my girls and I gave it a B-...and my boys, the target audience, both gave it wild A+s (which the youngest has been cautious about handing out lately:) and loved it - and that was the best part for me - seeing them love a non-superhero live action movie. It was a good $2 Tuesday movie...and I'm glad I saw it before it totally left the screen. It's better than its box office, but that can be said for a lot of movies. It also seems to be a movie that really never "hits" in box office anymore, which is a shame...
  2. That's kinda unfair... Lego 2 will be 55+% of its BO DOM... Alita will be lucky to do 25% of its BO DOM... It's quite the difference in return...
  3. I still haven't either...but it's next on my list since I made it through all the 2018 supers last week...guess I should make it a priority to get done soon so I can tease y'all, or wonder why one of my favorite series had to wait this long to hit #1:)...(my spouse is not a fan of the series, so I tend to watch them all on digital services now...he only went to the 1st with me in theaters:)...
  4. Here's the thing on comparing Alita Fandango presales to future movies... Alita had 2 major Atom ticket presale deals...and none on Fandango...so, presales were probably being driven more to the "untracked" presale database than the tracked ones (Fandango and MT.com)... So, Alita's presales will be most valuable to compare when similar Atom-only deals come out for other movies...but maybe not so much to a "no deal" or a "Fandango deal" movie...or to a method like Porthos uses, where an entire city's sales are tracked (so you mitigate the effects of any one deal by offsetting it with sites that don't have them)...
  5. So, in a comparison to total box office, skipping the last few president's day weekends b/c the movies were much bigger (better is subjective:), looking at the same weekend setup in 2013 with similar movies, this 2019 weekend's 3 day gross for all movies is a little under $120M...2013 was a little over $141M... The DOM BO is gonna start needing a miracle soon to catch up to any of the years of this decade in just nominal terms (forget inflation adjusting)...now, good news is we have the ending piece of 2 enormous series this year, so there's some time and room to catch up...but it's not good right now...
  6. You know, you made me check Valerian's final WW BO...and wouldn't you know...it moved out of total bomb territory into flop territory by somehow getting to $225M WW on its $175M+ budget. I'm actually kinda shocked it broke $200M WW:)...
  7. $22.9M for the 3 day isn't quite double $15M:)...unless you thought that for the 4 day...and then, yeah, you were pretty pessimistic (even more than me, which I thought was tough to do:)...

    Being around the temptation is usually a sure fire way to give into it. You may be better served finding an in-patient rehab that literally cuts you off from the world and the substances you struggle to avoid, so you're not trying to both wean yourself from physical dependence symptoms at the same time you're trying to avoid giving in to psychological impulses. And rehab is hard...and lots of people struggle and give in and have to start over...it doesn't mean they won't get there...it just means they aren't perfect and it's gonna take more time... I wish you a lot of luck on your journey, and I will send thoughts and prayers to you to help you on your struggle.
  9. So, wanted to update, now that we have a Top 10 gross from yesterday... Compared to 2013's $32M+ for Thurs Feb 14, yesterday's 2018 Feb 14 gross was $26,259,254...that's a sign of our current market if I ever saw one...
  10. So, rethought Lego's Monday by a good margin...and decreased Alita's Friday by $100K and 4 day by $700K...wonder if Deadline used one of the 2013 movies as a base, and matinees didn't quite live up to their "match"...
  11. So, right now, it's a dead heat for the 4 day weekend...but about a $2.7M difference on the 3 day... And Alita is predicted to have a $36.4M 5 day weekend... PS - Lego 2 is looking at a 39% 3 day drop with those numbers...
  12. But not all...and some were equally "not emergency"... I mean, we've had national emergencies for a US postal service strike and for not importing diamonds...a border one seems to fit as well as they do...which means, it doesn't...which is par for the course for pretty much all national emergencies that could have been handled by the legislature ever actually passing a bill for a president to sign... But that's crazy talk...and politics talk...and this is a movie's board...so bring on Friday numbers:)...
  13. If this is a serious question...no. There are 31 currently declared national emergencies, still in existence from the last 3 decades...one more won't do a blessed thing to box office:)...
  14. Die Hard 2013 had $840K in Wed previews...the rest was all Thursday gross (so true Thursday of a little under $7.4M)...https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/box-office-report-die-hard-421721
  15. Most interesting thing about this day vs 2013 set up...Top 10 in 2013 grossed $32M+ on the Thursday...I'm not sure we're gonna get close with the numbers we've seen so far...and those 2013 movies were no more "great" than these ones...
