I know it seems weird that this jumped so high in ticket sales but went solow in the comps department, but 13 out of the 23 tickets sold were from a theater I didn't track before I started this dang thing. But it doesn't matter, because it still seems good.

 

I started tracking Lion King on Day 17, so now we'll have two comps to look at. Whether or not that will make things clearer for me is up in the air though. :lol:

Not really sure what to use as a comp for this film, since as I understand it horror isn't that pre-sale heavy.  Maybe.  For now, gonna throw in a few recent ones along with JW2 and, by request, DP2 and hope for the best.

My feeling before seeing any of the posts here was around $12m for previews for IT2, with a slightly lower IM compared to IT (9.14), maybe 8.5-9.0 for a weekend at or just over 100m.

I want it to open with over 100M so this is encouraging. Is it going to start at 6 pm on Thursday due to long running time?

BOP:        115-155 OW (138 currently)

Variety:     95-110 OW

Deadline:  95-120+OW

 

Box Office Pro is the really optimistic one right now, but that's not unusual, as they're doing something slightly different from the other tracking services out there.

 

EDIT:::  

 

Didn't refresh the page (went away to do some other things), and didn't see @MattW already answered this. 👍

 

But since I'm here, I'll answer this bit:

Why does it get 5pm Previews in the US but previews in Germany can't start before 10:30?

Local traditions.

 

Probably "should" be 6pm at the earliest, but WB is obviously trying to squeeze in as many showtimes as it can so it went to 5pm instead.  Aiming at the college crowd also might have something to do with it.

 

(not to start up the debate on ever longer preview windows again)

Wonder how much money Disney left of the table for Endgame previews by not starting until 6 :thinking:

In Germany previews tend to always start between 7:45 and 8:15pm unless they are midnights (00:01). But WB specifically said cinemas couldn't start a showing before 10:30pm.

Since Ready Or Not is already released tomorrow (with first showtimes at 6pm from what I saw) I had a glimse at it and it didn't do that bad:
RON had at my normal counting time 215 tickets sold for tomorrow and 95 for Friday. For comps, that's a bit more than what Crawl had on Tuesday for its Thursday previews (194) and a bit less than what Crawl had on Monday for Friday (114).
If it's indeed as good as the critics say and if WOM spreads till the weekend it will not sink (completely).
Too bad that the horror movies have to cannibalize each other so much this summer...

I know it's a month out but does anyone have any thoughts on what will be the biggest new release for September 20th?

 

Downton Abbey tickets start tomorrow (Abominable was actually last week) and I see that it's actually being blocked until then so maybe they are expecting big things for the movie. Some locations have an early 7:00pm showing for September 12th.

Pretty sure it'll be Ad Astra by default. Speaking of, do you know when tickets start for that film?

*checks Sacto*

 

Huh.  Double Previews (12th AND 19th).  The one on the 12th does appear to be hard-locked at one showing like you said.

 

Interesting.

 

Anyway, here's the latest from boxofficepro:
