  1. I don't think you understand that politics are directly affecting the box office right now. The majority of theaters have had to close on any given day due to riots and unrest. This isn't Donald Trump doing something controversial for the millionth time in 3 days. This is hitting every spectrum of life. 24 hour supermarkets have had to close the whole day. Transportation has been shut down. Theaters have had to shut down over safety concerns for staff and the general public. Many citizens are living in fear and rushing home early to avoid interacting with these hooligans. It pains me to see ho

  5. Joker opening day actual - $433,511 Opening day comparisons -34.9% from The Dark Knight Rises OD -42.5% from Deadpool's OD (holiday) -47.1% from Captain Marvel's OD Friday admissions (October 4) 1. Joker - 26,603 (-32.7% from Thursday) Normally films do not drop on Friday, however, 30 theaters closed today during the 6 PM hour or later due to the ongoing riots/unrest which means more than 15,000 potential ticket sales were affected. All IMAX showtimes were cancelled as well. Now, I'm not sure how studios/theaters calculate grosses after theaters close but if they also count revenue
  6. Thursday admissions (October 3) 1. Joker - 39,547 adm. 2/3 of business comprised of walk-ins. With its impeccable 4.7/5 in opening day reviews so far, this seems poised to blow up this weekend. Depending on ticket prices and multipliers, it is aiming for an opening weekend of 2.2-2.7m, better than 2.1m OW achieved by The Dark Knight. If it performs on the high end of that range, it will gross 3/4 of The Dark Knight Rises OW.
  7. 7 PM update: The sun has set and more theaters have closed. Broadway/AMC - 11/14 theaters closed UA - 7/7 theaters closed MCL - 6/10 theaters closed + 2 more to be closed Golden Harvest - 5/7 theaters closed Cinema City - 4/5 theaters closed Emperor - 2/3 theaters closed Newport Circuit - 1/4 theaters closed If you include the 2 theaters that will close after 8 PM, 38 theaters will have been affected by the riots today. That is 2/3 of the city's entire theater count. Not surprisingly, movies have been greatly affected. Within a 2 and a half hour
  8. 2 PM update: More theaters have shutdown. Breakdown is below. Broadway/AMC - 8/14 theaters closed UA - 7/7 theaters closed MCL - 5/10 theaters closed + 1 more to close after 5 PM. Cinema City - 3/5 theaters closed Golden Harvest - 2/7 theaters closed These 5 theater chains represent more than 75% of HK's box office. 25 theaters have closed and 1 more will be added after 5 PM. I am shocked they haven't closed some theaters in the hot spots yet. They should shut down every theater. There's no need to jeopardize public safety like this especially when nearly a
  9. 19 theaters across the city will be closed the entire day today amidst expected clashes between rioters/police. The breakdown is as follows: Broadway/AMC - 7/14 theaters closed MCL - 4/10 theaters closed UA - 4/7 theaters closed Cinema City - 2/5 theaters closed + 1 partial = 3/5 theaters affected Golden Harvest - 2/7 theaters closed No other theater chains are reporting any closures. I expect by the time the sun sets tomorrow, at least half of theaters will have shut down in some capacity. R.I.P. HK box office. This is a major calamity for everyone in HK. For m
