The Box Office Buzz and Tracking Thread: Electric Boogaloo

DBOX is easy to figure out as DBOX seats have different tags to normal seats. So you need to count only seats that show DBOX unavailble. 

 

But the example you showed about an unavailable seat(B19) that is not sold is tough one. I dont see anything in html code to separate with normal sold ticket. That said when you are looking at large amount of seats(most wide releases at least has 500K seats, few anomalies wont matter while projecting), its irrelevant. But in your situation as well I would think its irrelevant as you track 10K+ seats per movie. 1% of data being bad wont change overall projections. You issue is anamolies with one market over performing or under performing for certain reasons(Genre, Weather, other factors). That said you have been very close with your sample and so keep doing it.

For really big movies it won't make a difference but it definitely will for smaller tracks. Reason I found it was just looking through my data for Suicide Squad and a large percentage of the sales were for these kinds of seats.

Thurs. + Fri.: 66/3,267 (2.02% sold)

 

I'm still relatively new to this, so I don't have any applicable comps for this. But, uh, judging off this, not quite on a new level.

Old (Wednesday Night Outlook)

Cinemark Davenport 18 + IMAX

Thursday: 

2D showings: 11/170

7:00 P.M.:11/85

9:50 P.M.: 0/85

Total: 11/170 (6.47% sold)

 

Friday:

2D showings: 26/1,190

10:45 A.M.: 1/238

1:40 P.M.: 8/238

4:35 P.M.: 3/238

7:30 P.M.: 11/238

10:25 P.M.: 3/238

Total: 26/1,190 (2.18% sold)

 

Thurs + Fri.: 37/1,360 (2.72% sold)

 

Comps:
1.0x Escape Room 2 Thurs. previews ($1.2 mil)

 

Currently, Old has sold the same amount of tickets that Escape Room 2 did for its Thursday previews the night before its release. Interestingly though, comparing both film's Fridays, Escape Room 2 only had 4 tickets sold across all of its showings last Wednesday, whereas Old has made almost five times that amount. 

 

I imagine this'll be pretty walk-up friendly though, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

All comps are now synced up to T-x. Because of the disparity in pre-sale length, both the F9 and BW comps suffered.  Setting that aside, TSS actually stopped the bleeding tonight, as its percentage of sales against all three films was... decent.  Which is a damn site better than it had been.  Is it starting to turn the corner? Only time will tell.

 

Also, I remembered last night that I should have been adjusting the comp against Black Widow, as at the time several theaters had unreliable seat maps and thus were not being tracked.  However, this only resulted in an over-count of two whole seats (that is, I was giving The Suicide Squad two more seats in a BW comp than I should have), which is an absolutely negligible error.  Still, it'll matter for about the next week and a half, so correcting for the error starting tonight.

Sigh.

 

Still mulling over an extremely unofficial H&S comp as I really am uncertain of the utility, but it would be, after all adjusting: 6.52m

 

(H&S outsold TSS 19 seats to 11 seats on T-15 [after adjusting for new sources of tracking info], which isn't exactly a great sign for TSS)

Deadline's weekend projections - this week, they say Space Jam 2 has an asterisk:)...and if you look, yes, this week they are also not getting too cocky, pretty much saying any of the 4 movies can win...

 

https://deadline.com/2021/07/snake-eyes-m-night-shyamalan-old-weekend-box-office-projections-1234797523/

 

"Paramount’s Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins and Universal’s M. Night Shyamalan thriller Old, both wide releases respecting the theatrical window, will face off this weekend at the domestic box office. Each are eyeing a mid-teens opening frame, making the winner too early to call.

 

In the meantime, Warner Bros’ Space Jam: A New Legacy, which is also available in homes on HBO Max, and Disney’s Black Widow, could wedge themselves between both titles, which are geared at males. Space Jam 2 is spotting a 48%-58% second-weekend decline between $13 million-$16 million, while Black Widow‘s third weekend is figured at a 45% decline for $14M.

 

Space Jam 2‘s weekend 2 projection comes with an asterisk as the industry is still learning how to forecast these theatrical day-and-date releases."

The main issue plaguing The Suicide Squad IMO is that it's a sequel also presenting itself as a soft reboot to a movie that most people didn't care for at all, which was already evident in a spin-off for one of its characters failing to meet even the lowest of expectations. It was probably destined to fall big time no matter what, especially with the main star not coming back (talented though he may be, Elba doesn't have 1/10th the level of starpower that Smith provides).

Sales haven't maintained the pace I thought they would. My theater could be an outlier compared to some other users' tracking, but I don't see more than 1.2-1.3M barring big walkups. I'll do another update later.

Based on these numbers, I'm willing to guess Old is more likely to win the weekend. It'll arguably be better with walkups being a horror oriented film, while Snake Eyes, even with the showtime mixup, has just been a nonstarter. Wouldn't be shocked with a low teens opening.

Sorry for being so late but we had a beautiful family-evening on the terrace :).
Old, counted today at 11am EST for Friday:


NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 110 (5 showtimes)
Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24):
37 (6 showtimes)
Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 23 (7 showtimes)
Austin (AMC Lakeline 9):
14 (4 showtimes)
Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11):
28 (4 showtimes)
San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 83 (8 showtimes)
LA (AMC Universal):
205 (10 showtimes)

 

Total tickets sold in 7 theaters: 500.
Up 91% since yesterday. Very good jump (but also needed).
Comps (always from the same day = Thursday of the release week): The Conjuring 3 (24.1M OW) had in the same 7 theaters 1.435 sold tickets for Friday.
AQP II (47.5M OW) had in the same 7 theaters 1.582 sold tickets for Thursday.
Crawl (12.0M OW) had in the same 7 theaters 269 sold tickets for Friday.
The Invisible Man (28.2M OW) had in the same 7 theaters 894 sold tickets for Friday.
And The Forever Purge (12.6M OW) had in the same 7 theaters 241 sold tickets for Thursday.
So the comps could mean an OW of barely under 10M but also up to 25M. I hope since it's a new movie and no sequel that it will rather follow the better comps, high teens at least.

Snake Eyes, counted today at 11am EST, also for Friday:


NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 268 (10 showtimes)
Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24):
58 (9 showtimes)
Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 25 (10 showtimes)
Austin (AMC Lakeline 9):
11 (4 showtimes)
Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11):
38 (9 showtimes)
San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 180 (11 showtimes)
LA (AMC Universal):
207 (9 showtimes)

Total tickets sold in 7 theaters: 787.
Up 33% since yesterday. An ok jump (especially after it had a very good one yesterday).
Comps (always from the same day = Thursday of the release week): F9 had in the same 7 theaters 3.585 sold tickets for Friday.
Angel has Fallen had in the same 7 theaters 446 sold tickets for Friday (but had good walk ups).
THWB had in the same 7 theaters 203 sold tickets for Friday.
From these presale numbers I would say it will perform as good as Mortal Kombat.
Please keep in mind that I track the Friday. E.g. for F9 both countings were right: The Thursday was indeed a little bit of a letdown as several members correctly reported before the release but it was overperforming (compared to expectations) on Friday.

 

My tiny update for TSS counted today at 11am EST (14 days to go):
San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 153 (8 showtimes); up meager 14% since Saturday
Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24): 78 (4 showtimes); up ok 62% since Saturday
Means combined 231 sold tickets.

Comps:
F9 had in these two theaters on Monday of its release week combined 461 tickets for Friday so TSS sits exactly at 50% of F9 with edit: 11 and not 4 days to come closer; I mixed up the weeks but even better for TSS.
The Conjuring 3 had on Thursday (8 days before its release on Friday) combined only 51 sold tickets for Friday.
And AQP II had 9 days before its release (my earlist counting) combined only 103 sold tickets for Thursday.
Sometimes I counted the Thursday number and sometimes the Friday number so it's a bit apples to oranges. OTOH mostly these numbers are pretty similar. In the release week I'll just count both days (also because I counted both days for BoP).
TSS should - given its genre - probably really do better but compared to movies of other genres it doesn't look bad. But still no hype to detect (OTOH where should that come from with still no reviews and the marketing only starting).

Based on these numbers, I'm willing to guess Old is more likely to win the weekend. It'll arguably be better with walkups being a horror oriented film, while Snake Eyes, even with the showtime mixup, has just been a nonstarter. Wouldn't be shocked with a low teens opening.

I'm kinda torn on that - is M Night "traditional horror", really?  Or is he more a base-driven film in his own category of M Night trick suspense?  I'm also not sure what his age draw is?  If it's "the Sixth Sense teens who now got old", and he's drawing 35+, they aren't gonna walk up...but if he's maintained popularity through age levels, they will...

going by Cineplex ratings, it has a warning for "Frightening images", no "horror/gore". I think its' going be mostly a psychological type of horror, there might be some "body horror" maybe with the aging thing. I think for many who see it will just want to look for "The Twist" he's famous for. I personally see it being 35 and up, I don't know how much Night has with the younger demographics (mind you I haven't kept track either). Will probably be a WOM, but internet being what it is, any "Twist" will hit social media pretty quickly IMO.
