It should be already at or around there from Keyser's data. I'm expecting $4-5 million more based on the pace compared to Lion King. 37-38 million.

I'm actually most curious how low the walk up percent is...I mean, there has to still be some non-reserved seating theaters, but I'd expect at reserved ones, there will be practically zero walk ups tonight...

It'll still get some. Currently late pace is looking like about 70% of TLK from MTC2. TLK added about 7 million from this point, this may do 3-4 as it's fading fast relatively. So perhaps 36-37 but overall in that range.

A-grade trackers we are fortunate to have on this epic thread have given nice ranges of 36-38 to 38-40 last couple of pages.

 

Enough intel for Deadline to break the story soon :ph34r:

 

At least something like "34-35+ and still growing with some saying we cannot rule out high-30s to even 40-41 according to one source who would not be named. If you see these numbers elsewhere remember we broke them first and they are quoting us."

Quick update on SW9 previews. This is about 3 hours after last one.

 

MTC1 Prev - overall 6802 shows 494426/1023251 7215149.27
MTC2 Prev - overall 4199 shows 324066/554210 3969825.00

 

Trickle of shows are being added as well. Let us see how things go with walk ups. I will update at least MTC1 once in the evening and will update both late in the night. Dont forget unlike normal movies this has preview shows as late as 530AM !!!!

What's a good preview number for TROS to have at least, lets say an 80%+ chance of making 200M OW?

$39m 

No way. With 39 it’s gotta be less than 50% to hit 200M. I’d say like 44M or so, since 43M needs a 4.65 IM and it’s not too hard to imagine missing that on a poorly reviewed finale.

I agree with the above. It is not hitting 200m with a 39m preview. That is a preview to OW multi of 5.13. That is significantly above TFA (4.35x) and above TLJ as well (4.88x). For comparison it is just below Rogue One (5.34). Based on tracking reports from media, TROS's presales have been around that of TLJ and with this being a finale I think it will have a preview to OW multi below that of TLJ.

 

Let's say a multi of 4.7 will require previews of 42.5 whereas same multi as TLJ will require previews of 41m. So I think previews below 40 would rule out 200m. it needs a minimum 41m to have a chance.

Very disappointing day. The reviews might be hurting sales. Also the lack of more showtimes being added from 6-9PM isn't helping. But more should be added later this afternoon and evening. So, we'll see if there are enough openings in those hours for a big boost tomorrow. To get the average of my comps to 40M, there needs to be 1655 tickets sold between now and previews. Which is a big number to reach, perhaps too big of a number.

I'm quite surprised it accomplished the goal of 1655 tickets that needed to be sold. Unfortunately a sold out showing was removed, so it seems like it was a false sell out. Nonetheless, it still made a net increase of 1591 tickets. It's possibly overperforming here, so I'll play it safe and go with 39M

F2 has the biggest deviation. Removing both, the highest (TLK) and lowest (F2) the avg is 40.4m. It might turn out that F2 plays closer to SW9 somehow but as such seems like an outlier.

TO me only good comparison is Joker. Other movies are not comparable. But it could be over-performing in phily and that is not surprising.

 

FYI I should have an update soon.

Just got back from the movie. I can see why critics were indifferent towards it as the plot is all over the place. However at the same time it is a very fun movie and full of action and has some nice nostalgia moments. Think this indeed might be one that goes over better with audiences than critics.
