That's probably the only one, as I've seen a scattering of 1 ticket sales over on Fandango.  Haven't checked today to see how many are being sold, but I presume it's minimal.

The lack of tracking numbers for The Secret Life of Pets 2 when the first movie opened over $100M seems a bit concerning.

Odd since it's the trailer that got by far the biggest reaction at all my AEG screenings -  a lot of laughter and chatter but then comedies are usually the ones with the biggest reactions.

(#1 on Fandango for, what a month?  Very very great run for EG.)

 

EDIT:::  

 

Looks to be one month exactly, as EG re-entered the top spot over at MT.com on April 15th and it probably did the same on Fandango.

 

What an utter historic run of dominance.  Bravo, EG, bravo. :bravo:

Endgame was 4th as recently as April 14, Shazam’s 2nd Sat (behind Shazam, Little, Dumbo).   

 

It was 2nd as recently as April 17, Shazam’s 2nd Tues. So just short of a month, R.I.P. this unfortunate flop, so close to success.

Remember what you said about it being alright as long as the bathrooms were clean and the projection system didn't break down😁  😁  😁  😁 

 

===

 

Sold very well on Opening Night, though I'd have to check my sheets to get an exact figure.  Problem is, either on opening night or sometime during the opening weekend, they had a projector fail, near as I can tell, and had a WHOOOOOOLE lot of pissed off Marvel fans.  At least according to Yelp/Google reviews.  Plus standard teething problems with a whole host of other minor issues

 

Since then?  Well, I guess that event didn't make a great first impression as it's solidly at the bottom tier of theaters locally.  But since then the reviews have started to trend upwards locally and it does seem to do decently on opening night.  But I haven't had a really big movie since then to get a great feel of things.

 

It's also only been open for less than a month, so I really would expect it to take a while before people consider it as a standard venue.  So kinda unfair to judge it on sales at the moment.

 

I'll guess I'll just answer by saying I suspect they probably would have liked a different opening night and leave it at that. ;)

JW3 has a huge lead. Awesome.

 

Pokemon is back down way behind End Game again. Not looking good for it

Also new post for this but this is going to be my final post for Detective Pikachu and how it's selling rn

 

4:00 3D-12/117

5:00 2D-63/117

6:45 3D-27/117

7:45 2D-71/117

9:30 3D-29/117

10:30 2D-46/117

 248/702 aka 35%

Final post for John Wick-

7:00 IMAX-73/302

7:30 2D-63/107

8:00 2D-38/70

9:00 2D-25/71

9:30 2D-9/60

10:00 IMAX-52/302

10:30 2D-30/107

290/1,019 aka 28%

 

While this is lower then Pikachu, worth noting that John Wick got 3 showings added last minute which will probably be filled up more with walk ups.

Also Pikachu didn't have any IMAX theaters which inflates the amount of possible seats.

Salt Lake City update for John Wick, Cinemark Sugarhouse 10, 3:20 EST.

 

Thursday

7:00 PM 57/104

7:40 30/47

10:05 13/104

10:45 11/47

 

Total 111/302 36.7%

 

Friday

Seven showings, 124/610, 20.3%. Two prime evening slots are a combined 45%, all the other screenings are generally between 10-20%

 

Salt Lake Trib gives it 3/4 stars. Unless this is super walkup-heavy, I see it having an opening comparable to Pokemon, maybe a little below, although the PLF screens might ultimately give it the edge.

A quick look at pikachu in london shows 14 showings at silvercity for friday but seat counts are almost ghost towns. 

 

Meanwhile looks like dogs journey might be dead before its opening weekend...those percentages dont look good.

 

Not much change in london for mr wick previews. Not sold out be good numbers at both theatres

Numbers are late because I did not believe this.  So I went back and did a near full recheck:

 

No more new theaters.  But John Wick scoffs at theater expansion:

 

Wick 3:   2075 tickets sold one day away (+457)

Pika:       2257 tickets sold one day away (+472)

Scattered more showings were added today.  Overall seat count for Wick 3 (10,462) now exceeds Pika PIka (10,268), thanks to the PLF.

 

Mid Day look:

 

Wick 3      2494 tickets sold mid-day of premiere (+419)

Pika:         2649 tickets sold mid-day of premiere (+392)

 

Wick 3 is in fact selling stronger today than Pika did more or less at the same time.  Not by much, no.  But still stronger.

 

Standard disclaimer of no 3D for Wick 3, but it does have PLF and no matinee pricing applies.  Probably means on balance each ticket sold is worth a fraction of a more than Pika, when looked at in aggregate.  But the lack of 3D and the relatively late surge of PLF can't be ignored either.  

 

Probably take a final look at Wick 3 around 5:30 pm.  Since that will be about 90 minutes after final check for Pika Pika, might rope in some other comps and see what I get.  

 

This isn't an official look, BTW.  More just curious to see how it's doing in raw ticket sales versus Detective Pikachu.  That it is very close bodes great things for it, obviously.

Final count of today, only Thursdays-

Godzilla: KoTM-100 (+5), 8 screenings (3 IMAX, 3 3D, 2 Regular)

Aladdin-92, 7 screenings (2 IMAX, 2 3D, 2 Regular+Fan Screening)

John Wick-223 (+60), 7 screenings (2 IMAX, 5 Regular) Final Day

Dark Phoenix-57 (+10), 6 screenings (1 IMAX, 2 3D, 2 Regular+Fan Screening)

 

HOLY FUCK THIS JOHN WICK INCREASE AND KING OF THE MONSTERS HIT 100 TICKETS IN ONLY 5 DAYS!!!!! :ohmygod: Absolutely insane day today. Also Dark Phoenix is selling consistently well so...hmmmmmmmmm. Might do better then we think unless my theater is overperforming. Also Aladdin had another day of no ticket sales when it's only 8 days away...that's not what you want to see especially with KoTM hitting 100 tickets before Aladdin, in only 5 days. In total today Godzilla sold 5 tickets, John Wick sold an insane 60 tickets, and Dark Phoenix sold 10 tickets.

First count of today, only Thursdays-

Godzilla: KoTM-101 (+1), 8 screenings (3 IMAX, 3 3D, 2 Regular)

Aladdin-91 (-1), 7 screenings (2 IMAX, 2 3D, 2 Regular+Fan Screening) Final week

Dark Phoenix-55 (-2), 6 screenings (1 IMAX, 2 3D, 2 Regular+Fan Screening)

 

Not a good start for Aladdin's final week honestly. It has to pass 100 tickets today imo for me to even consider revising my prediction of it's OW because this is just really bad for it.

Looking like the range is maybe 5.5m to 6m?  5.25m to 5.75m if we want to be conservative?

 

(My current raw comp against Pika Pika would be 5.37m)

 

Anyone getting a different range from their local looks?

5-6 million for previews sounds about right to me. Which is in and of itself an incredibly impressive range seeing how that would guarantee a 50+ OW from a predecessor that had a 30 million OW and had 2.2 million in previews.
