The Box Office Buzz and Tracking Thread: Electric Boogaloo

Recommended Posts

So 4255 in Megaplex. I will see how walkins in Harkins are, the PSm won't be same as Harkins but slightly lower may be. Say 1.3x gives 5.5k final admits aka $82K. In normal days that would mean $8.2-9M, so slight under indexing, not much.

 

But let's see how walkins are at Harkins or if we can get numbers for MTC 1 & 2 right now, can compare with those.

So yeah, the big issue, as somebody who dealt with the Noreaster, is that three different theaters were closed for the day, or at least seemed to. If you try and buy a ticket for them, you are unable to, which signals to me they weren't open at all. And while you can argue a lot of the sellouts and sales were just given to other theaters...losing three theaters is not a good thing, though I'm sure this is just an underindex. Either way, I do think the storm and floods will be an issue, at least for the first couple days of the weekend.

Thanks. At least comps are good, especially considering the situation.

Again not much acceleration. Was hoping for more. Only 55% of BW's pace today. Has to go 1.74x from today until final tomorrow for the adjusted comp to reach 9M. But even if that comp doesn't reach 9M, there should still be a chance with overindexing from Canada and other regions.

Once again ignoring that Fast 9 comp because I counted that early. Solid day, went about 1.7x from yesterday. 72% of Black Widow's pace. Don't know if it has the juice for 9M, especially with the aftermath of Ida. I'll go with 8.6M

Unfortunately I've been unable to get a full run of MTC2 since my last one but partial data is looking really good. It's probably doing better than my projection from earlier. Will be more specific when I can get full data.

All these regionals look like 9+ to me after atp. Maybe everything just looks like 9-10 to my fandom addled brain, but then we have the MTCs.

Agreed, everything point to +9M.

 

With Ida i can see around 8.3-8.6M tho because of some negative impact on numbers, but anyway, everything seems pretty good so far, happily.

And back to 70% of BW, more or less.  At T-0 Mid-Day (samples taken at the same time), Shang-Chi did 71% of the same business that Black Widow did at the same time.  I strongly suspect it'll do in the same range the rest of the day.  Not too much more at any rate.

 

As expected, The Suicide Squad comps is finally starting to drop through the floor.  It did underperform here (or at least the Sacto region might have normalized with the rest of the country), so expect that comp to come in high even at final bell.

 

Finally, put in a F9 comp for shits and giggles.  It too should drop considering the comparative sales patterns at play so, keep that in mind.

 

If SC does 70% of BW the rest of today (before stop of tracking), that'd be about 950 tickets sold which would bring the comp to 8.7m, which all things considered would be a fantastic result IMO.

 

To hit 9m, need about 1100 tickets sold between now and end of tracking, or about 80% of BW's sales over the same time period.  It's done that on occasion, but I wouldn't call it either a sure thing or a none-chance.  Just have to see what actually happens between now and then.

Right off the bat, I want to say I'm a little concerned about those two sellouts that got added to the count since last report.  It's from a large dine-in theater in town that usually does great buisness, but I'm also a little concerned they might be capping, as they were... less than transparent about their exact capping rules during the period of time when California was under seating restrictions.  But since I can't find anything on their website that actually says they're capping right now, and because it probably only is a matter of about 40 to 60 seats if they're capping at something like 80 or 90 percent, just gonna have to roll with it and count them as true sellouts.

 

With that out of the way, strong day in Sacto, but not enough to push the main comp over 9m. Came close to the marker though as Shang-Chi did around 79% of Black Widow's ticket sales over roughly the same amount of time.

 

The TSS comps is sticking out there as something of a sore thumb, but as I've noted it either under-performed pretty badly here or Sacto finally came in line with the rest of the nation.

 

Haven't seen much else of late reporting, but I think I'll stick with 8.9m +/- .4m,  Large-ish range, but enough uncertainty with fallout from weather plus places over and under indexing that I'll stick with that for now.

 

Either way, it's gonna be a great preview total, IMO.  Unless Sacramento is waaaaaaaaaaay out of sync and over-performing heavily.

I personally don't think we should as it should be a sign of Shang-Chi is over-performing in some areas relative to a Marvel movie.  

 

(I'm also concerned about overly relying on MTC data, as we've been burned on that before given how metro heavy it can be at times)

 

Do I think SC is coming in at 7m?

 

No.

 

Do I think the Denver comp (and to a lesser degree the comp out of Philly) shows that we shouldn't bump up the comps coming out of metros where it could be over-performing?  At least not too much?

 

Pretty much.

 

Hadn't seen this nor Eric's post, but it's making me glad that I didn't bump up my 8.9 +/- .4 to something like 9.2 +/- .4.  

 

I'll put it this way.  It won't surprise me if SC's preview is 9m+.  It also won't surprise me if it is 8.5m or less.

Shang-Chi Megaplex

 

T-0 days Thursday: 4255(+1783)/21408(+262) in 15 theaters

 

Black Widow comp: 6.78M [8279(+3301)]

Adjusted Black Widow comp: 7.10M

 

Yeah I think it's underperforming here. I also think that Black Widow may have overperformed with how big the last day jump was. Probably just ignore these comps

Do you have an F9 final number? Probably won't be of much use but still I'm curious.

Shang Chi Harkins T-1 Day

 

Format Shows Capacity Sold % Sold Gross ATP
Normal 167 42,850 3,308 7.72% $38,515 $11.64
Cine 1 16 4,818 1,628 33.79% $25,010 $15.36

Total 189 50,340 5,401 10.73% $70,266 $13.01

 

First off this is around 22.5 hours worth of day from yesterday, which apparently might have added 100-150 seats more if I took it an hour later.

 

Sold 1237 seats. I had put target of 1200 which it crossed easily. Unfortunately I don't have BW comp but can probably expect 2.5x PSm for $175K plus final in Harkins. We will see. 

 

2.97x of The Suicide Squad Tracked Gross - $12.2M

 

I am thinking Harkins will suggest $9.5-10M eventually tomorrow.

 

Edit: Side note, one theater doing exceedingly well, Cerritos 16. Cerritos has 59% of its population Asian, I suppose most of them would be Chinese. I will probably ignore this one while comparing with BW tomorrow.

Shang Chi at Harkins first show had 3522 admits on 32 shows with occupancy of 31.7%. Excellent start. First shows added 1635 seats from last night i.e. 1.87x PSm for first show. I will take another check in 20 mins for final number as there are good number of walkins 30 mins after show start. Will update these numbers. 

 

If whole day were to had 30% occupancy, we will have 15K plus admits, I am hoping for 14k+ atleast.

 

Edit 1: Added 122 more seats in next half hour.

Let me guess.

 

"Something went wrong with your order, please try again" button with a blank-ish screen when it tried to pull up a seat map? Or something like that as I forget the exact wording.

 

I started getting hit by that a couple of days ago, but it only lasted for a couple of minutes at first, but last night I got hit by a two-by-four with it.  Finally resorted to tracking corp sites.  Got hit with it again this morning after about 25 or 30 showings checked in rapid order so I said "Screw you, Fandango" and hit up the corp sites.

 

Luckily I figured out keyboard shortcut terms for all of them so it only added a short amount of time to the track.  Ultra annoying though, yes.

 

This is something brand new for what it's worth.  It's obviously some sort of flood control measure, as it's almost certainly tied to an timed cookie and not an IP ban like @Menor got back in the day.

 

Hopefully this isn't gonna be an ongoing thing, but I ain't exactly hopeful. 😕 

Yep this is pretty much the exact thing.  I've got the wording down for searching most of the sites now, but it's a pain to go between multiple sites instead of only one.  There was one that was pretty nice; Cinemark I think that lets you click through showtimes without going back to the list.  I'm out of town tonight and on different internet so maybe that has something to do with it.

Shang-Chi was at 109400 at MTC2 in the latest run I took. Should be around 5-6k ahead of F9 at the same point. Pace is really good. 125k minimum, more likely heading for 130k at MTC2. 

Assuming its 125k, $13.5 ATP should give $1.69M, though wonder if there has been any cancellations in East Coast, that may drive ATP a bit low, though MTC2 has low presence in East coast, so it may not be that impacted by the rains.

 

In normal times $1.69M would mean $10.5M but we are not in normal times, so let's wait.

As of 19:00, $75,812 at Harkins on 76 shows with 27.8% occupancy. 117 shows more to go.

 

The last night sales for these 76 shows were $39,611. For the remaining show sales were $30,655, we should get $100K from those.
