Seriously.  WHY do I do this to myself? :lol:

It is a little muted.  But it might just be running at a percentage of JW2 as well.  The idea that it might be headed for a 70m OW sounds logical.  

 

I will say it ain't exploding.  But that's also why I roped in the Venom and AM2 comp to show what they did 2 days from release.  Thinking the target number for Pika tomo is around 375 to 400 adj tickets sold tomorrow.   If it doesn't hit that, I might have to reassess or look at the pattern a bit more closely to see what is going on. 

Sounds good to me. 70 is about what I'm expecting as well right now. What would you say are your thoughts on KoTM's pre-pre sales?

The Hustle 485 1,012    
Pokemon Detective Pikachu 5,061 7,653    
Poms 198 474    
Tolkien 165 394    

 

Hustle comps:

91% of Blockers (18.8M)

63% of I Feel Pretty (10.1M)

77% of Life of the Party (13.8M)

187% of Spy Who Dumped Me (22.6M)

48% of A Simple Favor (7.6M)

112% of Nobody's Fool (15.4M)

166% of Second Act (10.7M)

92% of Little (14.2M)

 

Low teens still looks good. Not amazing, but could have been worse.

 

Pikachu comps:

33% of Incredibles 2 (59.7M)

128% of Ant-Man 2 (96.8M)

286% of Hotel Transylvania 3 (126.1M)

313% of Christopher Robin (77M)

157% of The Grinch (106.4M)

147% of Spider-Verse (52M)

421% of Bumblebee (91.2M)

185% of Lego Movie 2 (63.2M)

115% of Dragon 3 (63.1M)

165% of Dumbo (76.1M)

 

Some slight alterations, but the range seems about 60-75M (minus some outliers). Whether or not that's good or bad is up to you. There's also arguably a 90-105M range, so...pick the one you like, I dunno.

 

Poms comps:

29% of I Feel Pretty (4.7M)

36% of Life of the Party (6.5M)

30% of Book Club (4M)

27% of The Mule (4.7M)

77% of Second Act (5M)

118% of Marwen (2.8M)

33% of The Upside (6.7M)

 

This feels destined to hit single digits at this point.

 

Tolkien comps:

57% of BlacKkKlansman (6.2M)

69% of White Boy Rick (6.1M)

43% of First Man (6.9M)

45% of Widows (5.5M)

 

So initially comps had it at 4M, but now it's closer to 6M. A sign of good things to come? Well, with those mediocre reviews, probably not.

I'll let you know tomorrow night when I can do a full like-for-like local comp with FB2. :)

 

(also might dig into the thread and see if there were any pre pre-sale Fandango numbers that I didn't catch on a quick scan)

CoolEric's DP numbers make me feel more confident in my 70+ prediction for DP's OW.

Got it sounds good, thanks! I'm trying to not get too excited since it could just be a fluke but...it's hard not to. 😄

btw I'm not gonna do any upcoming movies until at least Thursday (even then that's a maybe). With four movies already on my plate for this week, I've already got a lot to talk about.

 

So @Mulder don't pester me for those Gojira numbers

IMO, Dumbo and Christopher Robin feel like the best comps out of the bunch. They're both live-action PG movies of known properties with CGI characters, which fits Pikachu. Both of those peg it around the 75-80 range. Lowering the floor due to possible fandom rush (Pokemon fans) would be around 70-80M. I can vibe with that.

Pika (JW) is the number of tickets sold at the same theaters I had tracking info for Fallen Kingdom and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Pika (FB) is the number of tickets sold at the same theaters I had tracking info for Crimes of Grindelwald and Venom

Looking at all those 0's, how many of those 4 actually sold out showings on opening night? Right now none of my showings are coming close to doing that, with the two closest at 82%.

 

And on that subject, how do you count seats on Thursday? Do you check the seats right before the first showing?

Out of those comps, JW2 had 1 'adjusted' sellout (one showing was at five seats).  Nothing else had any sellouts.

 

As for when I check, usually I start my check so I finish my check about a half an hour or so before first MAIN showings of the night (if there is anything like Fan Events or Double Features, I check those just before they start and then continue with the rest of the check).  Thus I work backward from there to figure out when to start my checks (since I check so many showings, it takes me a while to do).

 

In this case though, I'll probably try to run up as close to 4pm as possible, because of the early showtimes.  It's another reason I don't like these 4pm starts, it messes with my comps for movies that started later in the night.

 

I make a note in my final report of the time period I checked, like so:

 

====

Avengers: Endgame Greater Sacramento Area Premiere Night Seat Report:

PREMIERE NIGHT (FINAL REPORT) [4:30pm - 5:30pm]

(sellouts for THIS REPORT ONLY includes ALL theaters with six or fewer seats left)

 

 

Sellouts

Showings

Seats left

Total Seats

Perct Sold

TOTALS

158

347

3718

30373

87.76%

====

 

So in this case, since it was taking me an hour to do the count, I did it from 4:30 to 5:30.  I imagine the Pikachu count will take me about thirty minutes or so, so it will probably say [3:30pm to 4:00pm]

 

As for the adjusted sellout thing, that's just my personal standard.  Many folks on this board use the "Tele Standard" which is 'front row of fewer seats left'

 

I suspect it probably won't matter for PIkachu though, as you note. :)

I'm not sensing the same deflation of hype, and I feel like a combination of thinking it'd do 100+ and Endgame is coloring ya'lls perceptions just a bit. The DP videos Ryan Reynolds has put on his youtube channels have been doing phenomenally well so there's certainly plenty of online hype for it, and Fandango sales have seem a big uptick today that will make it look better with the comps used. I noticed the trades are looking to go with $50M, which I'm not surprised by; the tracking services they use often rely on precedent, and keep in mind the biggest videogame opener is still the first Tomb Raider at $47M.

 

We'll see how things look tomorrow, but I'm firmly thinking $75M OW and would probably bet on $80M. :sweat:

Seriously people are low-balling this movie so hard it's crazy, the hype is ridiculous. All of the videos put out have had insane positive reactions. They each have been top trending on YT, sometimes the #1 trend. The social media presence has not gone away. Sonic revived it big time. Todays "leak" video skyrocketed social media presence. The adorable "leak" has become the source of multiple meme's and so many people are gushing at how adorable it is and praising the marketing department.

 

Also I know Endgame vs Pika comparison is bad and I'm not going to do anything but point out the facts. Both put out videos today, Endgames amazing TV spot features an incredible iconic moment from the film that has massive spoilers and Pikachu's "leak" from a fake account mind you destroyed it to put it lightly.

 

I'm with you man, I'm firmly on the 75M OW. I would like more but anything in the 70/80M range is an impressive start. Could I be wrong? Absolutely but the sales we're seeing now and massive social media presence suggest something much bigger then 50/60M.
