  1. There has been zero marketing for The Forever Purge while movies such as The New Mutants and A Quiet Place have seen tons of marketing.
  2. There are low-budget but high-profile releases out there. Some examples: A Quiet Place 2, Antebellum, The Conjuring 3, Candyman, The New Mutants (which has been shelved for so long). Studios should consider putting these movies out first.
  3. This was expected. In my opinion, studios should use low-budget horror/thriller movies to test the water before they release any blockbusters. And all kid/family movies should wait a little longer because box office would be most depressed for these movies.
  4. #ThrowBackFriday Saturday, May 11, 2019 Admissions: 104,000 (#1 movie in gross - Avengers: Endgame) 1. (NEW) Pokemon: Detective Pikachu - 40,000 2. Avengers: Endgame - 37,000 3. (NEW) The Hustle - 13,000 4. Still Human (HK) - 4,800 5. Hotel Mumbai - 3,500 6. (NEW) The Prodigy - 2,200 (NEW) Never Look Away (Germany) - 400 (NEW) The Crossing (China/HK) - 350 (NEW) The Man Who Feels No Pain (India) - 200 (NEW) Dogman (Italy) - 200 Pikachu was #1 (in tickets sold)! It felt like a long time ago. Movie admissions this year were down 79% compared to a year ago, when Hotel Mumbai was a surprise hit.
  5. Most movie theaters re-opened on May 8 after 40 days of mandatory closure. People remain cautious when it comes to moviegoing. Saturday numbers do not appear to show much improvement over the month of March: Sat, May 9 - 22,000 tickets sold (#1 The Bridge Curse) Sat, March 28 (6pm closing) - 10,000 (#1 Bloodshot) Sat, March 21 - 19,000 (#1 The Hunt) Sat, March 14 - 30,000 (#1 The Battle of Jangsari) Sat, March 7 - 33,000 (#1 The Call of the Wild) Sat, February 29 - 28,000 (#1 The Invisible Man) Admissions for Saturday, May 9: 1. (NEW) The Bridge Curse (Taiwan) - 4,700 2. Bloodshot - 4,600 3. (NEW) A Good Doctor (France) - 2,200 4. (NEW) Trolls World Tour - 2,100 5. (NEW) Heilstätten (Germany) - 1,200 6. Happy Old Year (Thailand) - 1,100 7. (Re-issue) Better Days (HK/China) - 900 8. (NEW) Kamen Rider Reiwa: The First Generation (Japan) - 900 9. Mr. Zoo : The Missing VIP (South Korea) - 700 10. (NEW) Tora-san, Wish You Were Here (Japan) - 600 Trolls World Tour was unable to deliver a happy tune. It seems families largely avoided cinemas. Horror movies continued to outpace other genres at the box office during the pandemic following the successes of The Invisible Man, The Platform, and The Hunt. The Bridge Curse continued the trend.
  6. That's his brand of nationalism. Nation over individuals. But more people getting sick eventually hurts the country. Also, spending time on virus containment effort will bring focus to the loss of human lives and his numerous failed responses. Reelection comes first for Trump. So now he is trying hard to shift the focus to something else.
  7. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1109281/covid-19-daily-deaths-compared-to-all-causes/ Average daily death toll in 2019 is ~8,000. Average daily Covid19-related death toll over the last 7 days is ~2,000.
  8. Death rates increase in many countries during the pandemic. I would like to see someone do a similar analysis on the US.
  9. https://covidtracking.com/data Clink on the "historical data" link for that data in each state.
  10. That's not enough to explain his 7 weeks (from mid-Jan to early March) of inaction and purposely ignoring the risks though. He or his people on the cabinet should have seen Italy's situation. He should have known it was a big deal China locked down the Wuhan area and other big cities, which had prompted other Asian countries to take significant containment measures. China values their economy more than human life. It would take something really damaging for them to shut down the economy on Jan 22. My theory is Trump, always self-centered and skeptical of science, did not think the virus would be more deadly than the flu. Any collective action to contain it that would disrupt the economy (and the stock market too) would be unwarranted. Even it would kill thousands of lives, he thought it would cause only a small ripple and closing down the economy for it would be unwise, It was the same thinking as that of the Chinese government in the initial phase. "It's just the flu", business as usual. He only acted when the thing was spreading uncontrollably. The world should demand answers from China for its coverup from December to mid-January. The US should demand accountability from the Trump admin for its inaction and purposely ignoring the risks.
  11. @Barnack They increased the top range of the estimate from 200,000 to 240,000.
  12. 141,950 Positive + 714,596 Negative = 856,546 https://covidtracking.com/data/
  13. It was after 7 weeks of inaction. Lack of testing and contact tracing (which would have killed many transmission chains from the onset), absence of personal hygiene and social distancing guidelines (which would have driven down the spread rate), and complete ignorance by the leaders of the federal government are what put us in this situation. The whole lockdown thing could have been avoided or delayed to much much later and for a shorter period of time if we started preparing earlier like they did in South Korea and other places.
