6*I2 opening is 1.096 billion. Thus, "With TLK opening to 250M, did Disney leave Avengers: Endgame on the table this weekend?"

I think @VenomXXR is thinking a bit small here. Using I2 as a comp, TLK is heading for the first ever BILLION DOLLAR DOMESTIC OW. Every single lost dollar, every single underperformance or flop has led up to this moment. The King will arise.

What are the first day numbers for the two Avengers movies?

IW - 29k

EG - Pulse crashed, from the general ratio of theater sales at chains it would probablyhave hit the 4k cap every hour it was on sale that day and ended up with 60k or so, but if Pulse didn't cap people on this thread estimated it would have done something in the 300-400k range

TLK — 12 Hour Update — AMC Willowbrook 24

 

TLK is starting off with 37 show times (Captain Marvel had 30 on Wednesday before opening) and has sold 218 tickets so far (Aladdin had sold 267 by 5pm on Wednesday before opening). I didn’t do a total seat count, but I will once I start my official updates on Wednesday night.

 

All in all, I’d say the theaters are prepping for a $25m+ previews night. Whether it gets into that territory or not remains to be seen, of course.

I'd say that the preview-to-OW multiplier will be bigger for TLK than for movies like Captain Marvel. The reason is that superhero films tend to bring out bigger previews. But I may be stating the obvious. 

 

A $25 million preview for TLK would yield an OW deep into the $200 millions without question.

I imagine the previews/weekend ratio will be in the 9-10x range.

I am not convinced about 25 million in previews for TLK yet, but we will see. It's not an easy number to reach, especially for a family-oriented film.

*These shows are glitched sell-outs. However because of the pattern the showtimes form, it's safe to assume how many seats are in the theater and the zero have been sold so far based on how other shows around that time are doing.

Shouldn't Annabelle be doing a bit better with presales considering it opens in less than 24 hours?

Looks like TLK is gonna just miss Fallen Kingdom's first day on Pulse.  Right now, including the Fan Event, TLK is sitting at 10,540.  It's been getting around 450-470 sets per hour last few hours, so even if it hits 11k, it'll still be a tiny bit short of JW:FK's 11.6k.

 

 

Eyeballing it, TLK has a lot more holdover competition with TS4/Aladdin in theaters and FFH rising than TLK faced on last May 30th.  So keep that in mind when thinking about things.

Still sticking with TLK either missing 150 OW or just barely hitting it.

Probably wouldn’t even make the top 5 most disappointing weekend so far this year. But I hope not, last thing we need is more big movies coming in under hopes/expectations.

Did the numbers slow down as the day went on? Last I heard this thing was having Infinity War-level pre-sales. Did it match it for the first few hours and then fall behind?

First few hours were a lot stronger than later. Totally normal for first day of sales, might have been exacerbated today by TS4 and capping. I would personally describe them as very strong but not out of this world.

Nothing to be said but a strong day in Sacramento for TLK.  It wasn't at the level of the big CBMs (or Solo for that matter), which is why I didn't put them in the comps yet.  Also tend to think the pre-sale pattern will be different with them.  But I plan on roping in at least a couple eventually.  Maybe even within a couple of days.

 

One thing that stands out, as @VenomXXR had already noted is that theaters locally are preparing for the possibility of a YUGE OW. Only other film that started with more was Endgame.  The second closest to TLK was IW which had 103 at start versus TLK's 133 (123 if I don't count the new theater in town).  However that was also much further away at 42 days of pre-sales, so that also should be noted.

 

Now doesn't mean it'll finish with the second most showings. Captain Marvel, for instance, finished north of 200 showings even though it started at 63.  TS4 hit 156 at final bell just a couple of days ago.  So who knows where it'll end up.

 

Regardless it was a strong start for TLK locally, but not on the level of the stronger CBMs/SW films.  Which is to be expected for this type of movie, especially since the national numbers really didn't reflect that sort of start, either.
