  1. They specify a $301M “net” budget for NTTD. I wonder if that includes marketing and distribution costs off-set by promo deals.
  2. Look man, RON’S GONE WRONG tickets aren’t easy to come by. When you find an open seat you take it, no matter what other movie you might be seeing at the time.
  3. Between Halloween falling on Sunday and Universal-adjacent LAST NIGHT IN SOHO opening next week (not that studios would ever give money from an opener to a holdover...), HALLOWEEN KILLS could in theory have a decent enough hold that it can be dragged over the $100 million mark. Seems like a long-shot though.
  4. I wish Deadline was consistent with their PostTrak reports. Sometimes they report a score out of 5, sometimes they just report the positivity rate.
  5. Maybe? Does Josh Brolin need to be hard-ass military guy? If not, that saves you a couple million dollars. Does Javier Bardem need to play “Hi I’m cameoing so you’ll remember me in the sequel” guy? If not, there’s a few more million saved.
  6. The sad thing with DUNE is that if it cost $100 million to make instead of $165 million, a $40M-ish opening and $300M+ worldwide finish wouldn't even be in question as being, at the very least, pretty good. Movies are too expensive now.
  7. This thread is emotional whiplash. Every sort of a doom and gloom "I wish it was doing better..." post is immediately followed by a "It's doing great!" post.
  8. Genuinely being disturbed because someone likes a piece of entertainment more than you do is very odd.
  9. Why is it when people point to “the best director working today” it’s always someone who exclusively makes $150M+-budgeted movies?
  10. The movie, probably without any prior attachment to the source material which I would go out on a limb and guess doesn’t apply to you if you’re defensive about it
  11. If you might indulge me a moment to pop on my tinfoil hat, part of me wonders if Universal played with the numbers a bit to bring HALLOWEEN KILLS in just a hair under $50M. Doesn’t their deal with theaters allow them to sell sub-$50M OW grossers on VOD platforms after just 17 days? Getting KILLS out there on November 1st has to look mighty tempting to them.
  12. Keep in mind that the trades are often mouth-pieces for the studios. I'm not saying this is the case (I hope it's not the case), but if IATSE truly walked away, getting something out there saying "We're really close to a deal!" makes it easier to paint the guilds as greedy, selfish, etc.
  13. That is not the worst case scenario but my landlord appreciates your optimism.
  14. Not that it’d ever be this consistent, but just for funsies: HALLOWEEN 2018 made $7.7M in previews for a $76.2M weekend. If HALLOWEEN KILLS managed the exact same ratio: $4.8M = $47.5M $5.25M = $51.9M
