  1. Yeah, it's more likely that, but Deadline was spinning high $50s, so I went for the more optimistic number:)...
  2. With a production budget estimated at the high $50s (or possibly higher), it's a shame Alpha does seem like it will be the financial misfire a lot of us thought (without a big overseas pick up)...it's even more a shame b/c if it is actually way better than the previews sold it, it probably deserved better than to be marketed to a Teen Titans Go movie audience with a subpar trailer...the movie is probably tailor-made for an adult art-focused audience, and I don't think it ever tried to find that group, nor to find a good date to reach that group (b/c right now, there's an overabundance of new material for adults to savor, and it's just become one more premier work in an August stuffed with them)...
  3. WOW! Which poster was the one convincing them to up that estimate? Seems you were VERY convincing (and I do agree with you:)...

    Anyone else just get AMC Stubs A-List?

    It took Cinemark 12 months to get to 350K subscribers...it took AMC 6 weeks to get to 260K...I think we are seeing a wide swap from Moviepass to AMC, which Cinemark and especially Regal will have to respond to, since they won't be getting full-price ticket buyers in to their non-blockbuster showings... Another 4 weeks of growth like AMC is having, and I expect Regal to announce a plan by mid-Sept... "This figure indicates some 85,000 A-List enrollments in just the past two weeks. AMC previously publicly reported 175,000 enrollments on July 31."
  5. So far, if you look at the Thursday thread numbers, they are not... We are starting the slow college/K-12 back to school path (which takes more than just kids out of the weekday buyers:)...
  6. Might be the AMC effect:)... My Cinemark tonight - I missed the 5pm Alpha in the 60 seater, but for now, it's next two shows are at 0 sales (not a misprint - and the 7:30pm is in an hour)...Mile 22 is at 4 seats total sold for its 2 shows in a 60 seater...those are pretty dang poor for new openers:)... Gonna see if I can add the Regal sales to this post... Alpha got 2 screens for tonight (WTH?) and has sold 23 seats for 4 showings...Mile 22 has a single screen and 2 showings and has sold 56 seats... Damn, did Regal run a special b/c this is crazily different performances for 2 opening movies, and while these theaters sometimes diverge, they don't usually diverge this much...

    Okay, then my post stands...you very likely need help right now and should probably seek it immediately. Internet posters can't provide what you might need - we can only point you in the direction.

    Classic Conversation, now with added Teen Angst

    If you're serious, tell a best friend/confidant that you think you are a danger to yourself, and you're not sure what's real and what's not...and if you don't have a close enough friend, tell a family member or call a hotline...
  10. I admit, that scene has become one of the top 100 most iconic and memorable for me of all time (might that be another list to run?:)...it delivered the entire emotional punch missing from just seeing 1/2 the folks wiped out - this was personal and powerful...it's why I SO don't want Iron Man dead before he and Spidey can have a reunion in 4...
  11. Regal theaters are offering a ticket to every Marvel movie for $50 total with a pass to get a $5 medium popcorn/medium soda combo for each movie. If I had the time, that would be a really great way to spend the week (although maybe only 1 popcorn a day, not 1 per movie:)... https://www.regmovies.com/promotions/marvel-marathon?utm_source=national_target&utm_medium=email&utm_content=master&utm_campaign=08-15-18
  12. It might...and it's not just awful marketing, but it's misdirected marketing combined with a bad opening strategy (coming out now in such a tight market when so many other premier concepts are all dropping at the same time...you wish someone had done a "Baby Driver" like last year and slipped one of these premier concepts into the early sequel heavy summer, rather than back-ending them all to August)...
  13. Are both on Atom? I ask b/c Atom has a huge presale deal that gives you a bigger and bigger discount for more tickets...(Although, being the same chain, I'd assume they are). That'd be a bennie (that might affect presales) above both being on the A-list subscriber plans...
  14. What chain is the dominant one (and the not dominant one)?
