The Box Office Buzz and Tracking Thread: Electric Boogaloo

Recommended Posts

the next few days are going to give a lot of big numbers for Fantastic Beasts 2....

it will be very informing about how close to 200 million it can get after next Sunday

 

10 previews + 20 Friday + 26 Saturday + 19 Sunday = 75 weekend.  

 

6 Monday + 8 Tuesday + 11 Wednesday + 10 Thursday + 18 Friday + 17 Sunday + 10 Sunday = 45 second weekend, 155 10-days.

The only other recent big movie that had sneaks that I can recall was last year's Jumanji, which had an Amazon promotion of some sort the week before.

Ocean's 8 and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation also had some sneak previews this past summer.

Ain't no way its dropping less than 50% on its second weekend, let alone just 40%.

Green Book is only opening in 1k theaters next week. Hm.

Not a bad choice, they're aiming for a WOM hit. Helps that there's really nothing of note opening the following two weekends either so they might as well take advantage.

Only problem is this gives less time for smaller and midsize theaters to hang onto it as it’ll be gone from those theaters when the Christmas onslaught starts

They can always re-expand once the holidays are over when awards season will be in full swing.

Fantastic Beasts at one of the theatre's I'm tracking:

 

231 tickets sold for tonight

 

(1.462x Bohemian) = $74.65M

(3.5x First Man) = $56.35M

 

 

Should definitely be good for 60 for the weekend. Not quite sure about 70 yet, considering its earlier previews seemed to help it a lot. But 75-69 is my range

pre-sales indicate that FB2 should get close to 10M on Thu previews (like Venom and AMATW) but deadline is only reporting 7M-7.5M :thinking:

This isn't how it works (correlation isn't perfect), although it looks like FB2 did $9.1M anyway.

Oh okay well I’m not sure. In Los Angeles it’s jot showing a single ticket has sold for amc. I haven’t looked at other theaters. But like I said idk when the tickets went on sale. I didn’t know they were available until I saw your message.

My local AMC has 5 showtimes for Aquaman. The three 2D shows are in the biggest auditorium while the two 3D shows are in an average one. I’m assuming the biggest auditorium will alternate between this and Poppins.

A few theaters might have a movie on sale earlier than planned. Sometimes it's a communication error, other times it may be a test. Deadpool 2 and Crimes of Grindelwald did the same thing. We'll probably get a trailer or TV spot or something very soon though that promotes tickets being on sale now.

 

Also of note, Bumblebee has showtimes posted, but are still grayed out, meaning you can't buy them yet. The earliest showtimes start at 5, like Aquaman, Beasts, and Venom before it. I guess this is the new normal now.
