The Box Office Buzz and Tracking Thread: Electric Boogaloo

Recommended Posts

More details from that article for Joker: 

Quote

Warner Bros.' dark supervillain origin story, starring Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role, is pacing for a domestic debut of $82 million over the Oct. 4-6 weekend, according to those with access to estimates from industry leader NRG. Another service has the R-rated pic coming in at $77 million, while some have it even higher at $87 million.

And Gemini Man 

Quote

New titles on tracking include Ang Lee's sci-fi epic Gemini Man, starring Will Smith. Early NRG estimates show the the sci-fi epic debuting domestically to $29 million, ahead of Lee's Life of Pi ($22.5 million). The pic opens Oct. 11. The range being given by the combined services is $28 million to $30 million.

Pretty close to BOP’s 27.

Close to 30 would honestly be great for Gemini Man. If it's as good as people are saying, it could leg it to 100M. OS should also be pretty big too (200-300).

Whats the big deal with that? First Man was tracking at the same level and Universal put in 3640 theaters. I think its awesome that Disney is willing to push an adult oriented artsy sci-fi movie that they know is far from a surefire win. Besides, Disney isnt really used to batting at this lower level.... Im happy theyre respecting the legacy Fox assets

Well I can assure you they weren’t booking that many locations with hopes of a $15m opening.

They would have had the theatres booked before this most recent tracking came in.

Thursday Salt Lake report for Downton, Rambo, and Astra. Sugarhouse Cinemark, 3:00 PM. Five showtimes for D.A., three for Rambo, and 2 for Astra.

 

D.A. 103/266 38.7%

Hasn't maintained its earlier momentum, but still looking to easily take the weekend crown. Evening shows are solid, literally no tix sold for the post 10:00 PM screenings. Weekend looks very strong. 250 tix already sold for Friday.

Comps:

51% of OUATIH = $20.55 OW

102% of Godzilla = $48.7 OW

191% of Rocketman = $49 OW

 

Ad Astra

29/208 13.9%

Really hate to see this. When did intelligent sci fi die? Arrival limped over $100M and BR:2049 couldn't even manage that ($92M). Astra would love to see those numbers, but $50 seems the longest of shots at this point. 49 tix sold for Friday.

 

Rambo

21/174 12%

All I can say is, this looks like the movie Dirk Diggler would have dreamt of making had he gone legit. It will probably get 8 million walkups and wind up winning the weekend. 17 tix sold for Friday.

Some people here literally root against dramas and artier movies. Why I don't come around nearly as often anymore.

👍 on the excellent chart usage, BTW, @FlashMaster659.  Been meaning to comment on it and I thought I would take the opportunity to do it now.

Ad Astra Greater Philadelphia Area Seat Report Final Count

  Sellouts Showings Seats Sold Total Seats Perct Sold
TOTALS 0 31 474 5,533 8.57%

 

Total Seats Sold Today: 219

 

Comp

0.249x of Once Upon's final count (1.44M)

0.137x of It Chapter Two's final count (1.44M)

0.437x of Hustlers' final count (1.09M)

 

Adjusted Comp

0.203x of Hobbs & Shaw's final count (1.18M)

 

I'm sure some people will be excited by these numbers, and the big increase in some of these comps. However, with Once Upon and It 2, they opened three and two hours earlier respectively to Ad Astra. That really impacts things. Hustlers and Hobbs & Shaw meanwhile had 7PM previews, much like Ad Astra, and they're pointing to the piss-poor, First Man like numbers from before. I would love to see this have previews that high, and maybe it could, but I'm erring on the side of caution.
