Venom Harkins T-22 Days

Normal 70 19,027 40 0.21% $455 $11.38
Cine 1 24 7,227 93 1.29% $1,393 $14.98

Total 97 27,589 150 0.54% $2,103 $14.02

 

First off, this isn't full chain but data of just 15 those theaters which did majority of bizz and were doing well in pre-sales for Shang Chi. There are some 10 other theaters, which hardly sell anything till final day and our P.I.T.A. to track and watch 0 seat sold. Of the total $6,716 first day sales for Shang Chi, $6,204 was in these 15 theaters.

 

Comps

33.8% of Shang Chi first day - $2.98M

35% of The Suicide Squad T-7 Days - $1.44M

 

Comps don't really matter at this point especially the joke TSS one. Weak start to sales, let's see if it pick up.

 

Venom 2 Harkins T-17 Days

Total 111 31,107 408 1.31% $5,644 $13.83

 

Comps

90.9% of Shang Chi T-17 Days (First day of sales) - $8M

23.8% of Black Widow T-18 Days - $3.32M

40% of Shang Chi first 5 days of sales - $3.52M

 

Slight improvement in Shang Chi X days of sales comp, but still not enough. Need a good bump. I will probably do next check in 7 days as its selling very slow.

So… anybody know the record for one movie’s share of a monthly gross? 

Gotta be Tenet last year, right?

Isn't that close to 47-48% of September 2020 grosses?

 

EDIT TO ADD: How did I forget TFA when I was talking about it last night?:)  And TA even better - dang!

    Raleigh 8 27 3,521 24 24 0.68%
  Cry Macho Total   16 52 6,712 31 31 0.46%

 

 

A few things to unpack here.  First, I don't know what Copshop is, but it seems like everyone else might be in the same boat.  For a few T-3 comps in that range we have Queenpins (6), Joe Bell (6) and House Next Door (5).  Cry Macho is faring a little better, at least in Raleigh.  T-4 comps could be Reminiscence (24), Protege (29), and Stillwater (21).

 

Venom 2 sales look alright, I suppose.  New sales are new since T-21 (four days of sales).  

 

Venom comps

TSS - 1.626x (6.67m)

F9 - .8x (5.68m)

 

Average - 6.18m

Day Movie Area Theaters Shows Total Seats Total Sold New Sales % Sold
T-16 Venom 2 Jacksonville 5 49 8,348 109 3 1.31%
    Phoenix 6 46 8,738 165 22 1.89%
    Raleigh 7 32 4,286 107 3 2.50%
  Venom 2 Total   18 127 21,372 381 28 1.78%
T-2 Copshop Jacksonville 5 9 862 5 3 0.58%
    Phoenix 4 15 1,333 3 2 0.23%
    Raleigh 7 14 1,462 3 2 0.21%
  Copshop Total   16 38 3,657 11 7 0.30%
T-3 Cry Macho Jacksonville 5 17 2,121 4 1 0.19%
    Phoenix 3 8 1,070 8 4 0.75%
    Raleigh 8 32 3,843 32 8 0.83%
  Cry Macho Total   16 57 7,034 44 13 0.63%

 

Copshop had easily its best day so far.  It's now ahead of Joe Bell (9) and House Next Door (7) but still terrible.  Cry Macho is at least a little interesting now.  Protege (33), Reminiscence (37) seem to be the best comps, but the Raleigh performance makes me wonder if it's overperforming there or underperforming in the other two cities.  Snake Eyes, Respect and Paw Patrol are others that skewed heavy in Raleigh for whatever that's worth.

My theater is getting Cry Macho, Copshop, and Blue Bayou this weekend.

 

Yup, we are in the doldrums of September alright.

 

Mine have more doldrums...one is passing on Blue Bayou and booking Cry Macho, Copshop, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and a foreign film (Gully Rowdy), while the other hasn't yet decided (but does have Cry Macho in presales)...

Copshop counted today at 11am EST for Thursday:

NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 9 (3 showtimes)
Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24):
3 (2 showtimes)
Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 1 (2 showtimes)
Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 0 (1 showtime)
Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11):
2 (2 showtimes)
San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 4 (2 showtimes)
LA (AMC Universal): 10 (3 showtimes)

Total tickets sold in 7 theaters: 29.

Comps: Angel has Fallen had on Tuesday for Thursday 276 sold tickets in 7 theaters.
21 Bridges had on Tuesday for Thursday 183 sold tickets.

 

Copshop counted today at 11am EST for Friday:

NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 9 (4 showtimes)
Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24):
1 (3 showtimes)
Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 0 (3 showtimes)
Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 2 (2 showtimes)
Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11): 0 (2 showtimes)
San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 2 (2 showtimes)
LA (AMC Universal): 6 (3 showtimes)

Total tickets sold in 7 theaters: 20.

Comps: Angel has Fallen had on Tuesday 159 sold tickets for Friday in 6 theaters (still without NY)

and 21 Bridges had on Tuesday for Friday 193 sold tickets.
At least I saw that it gets quite good reviews so far (70% and 5.8/10 at RT) and maybe it's just a walk-up film (if anybody knows that it's released).

 

Cry Macho counted today at 11am EST for Friday:

NY (AMC Fresh Meadows 7): 8 (4 showtimes)
Miami (AMC Sunset Place 24):
1 (2 showtimes)
Grand Rapids (AMC Grand Rapids 18): 4 (3 showtimes)
Austin (AMC Lakeline 9): 0 (2 showtimes)
Tempe/Phoenix (AMC Centerpoint 11): 2 (2 showtimes)
San Francisco (AMC Metreon 16): 8 (2 showtimes)
LA (AMC Universal): 7 (2 showtimes)

Total tickets sold in 7 theaters: 30.

Comps: Those Who Wish Me Dead (2.8M OW) had on Tuesday 72 sold tickets in 4 theaters (so vs 25 sold tickets for Cry Macho),
The Good Liar (5.6M) had on Wednesday for Friday 70 sold tickets in 6 theaters,
Stillwater (5.2M) had also on Wednesday for Friday 41 sold tickets in 6 theaters

and Richard Jewell (4.7M) had again on Wednesday for Friday 149 sold tickets in 5 theaters.
So Cry Macho will at least be on par with Stillwater tomorrow (but of course that wasn't a HBO Max day and date release).

I wish we had gotten Eyes of Tammy Faye. I think it looks interesting.

I don't think my area has thought that yet - it hasn't presold a ticket:)...but there's some time left...

You know, a thought just struck me.  It's a shame that Godzilla vs Kong was released in such a different environment (no Regal/Canada, social distancing requirements, day and date, massive amounts of PWPs, capacity caps) as it might be the best comp for Venom 2 in a neutral environment this year.

 

Instead of a oversized lizard and a giant monkey fighting each other you have two goofy-ass symbiotes hamming it up on the screen while duking it out. 

 

(the thought struck me about how some folks were fretting about having to dodge spoilers getting out about Venom 2 due to staggered release internationally and I immediately thought "It's two goofy-ass symbiotes  fighting — what's there to spoil?" which is more or less the exact same thing I thought about GvK and spoilers a few months ago)

 

Still, while the totals might not be comparable the overall sales pattern might be. It also was a sequel so the fan rush angle should still be somewhat baked in. 

 

Gonna be away from my spreadsheets/computer for a while, but I might take a glance at GvK's sales pattern to see if it was indeed especially backloaded or not.  Compared to say, Marvel or F9 (to take two pretty different sale patterns).

 

EDIT::::

 

As I think about this some more, the one bit caveat here is that, locally at least, GvK ran into a HUGE capacity issue on its last two days of sales.  At stop of tracking, literally 87%+ of seats allowed to be sold were in fact sold and 63%+ of all shows were sold out.  It, for all practical purposes, ran out of seats locally that folks were willing to buy.

 

Still, everything up to Monday Night (it was released on a Wednesday) seemed pretty solid comp-wise, if my vague recollections are correct.  Maybe even Tuesday for that matter.  Gonna have to keep that in mind if I do indeed check this out.

@Shawn any chance there will be a long range forecast coming soon?

We got one just 3 days ago that went through venom, so at best you could get a NTTD update this Friday but I’d guess they’ll wait 2 weeks for HWK.

Yep. The timing is still slightly up in the air, but I'd definitely expect slightly more regular LRFs on the site for at the least next month or so.

Damn, Eyes of Tammy Faye is getting two screens at Disney Springs this week including one of their largest auditoriums. Cry Macho only has a single screen on the lower end of standard capacity.

 

Dear Evan Hansen also isn't confirmed for Dolby yet here. Shang-Chi will probably end up keeping Dolby at some locations next week if tracking stays low for DEH

NYC Local  Regal

(9.12.21) (6pm) (Day 5)

 

V2: 25/2766

SC: 57/1402

 

Comp = $3.86m

 

NYC Regal

(9.14.21 - 4pm - Day 7) 

 

V2:  30/2766

SC:  78/1402

 

Comp = $3.38m

 

Notes: 

 

SC wildly over performed at my theater.  I found my BW numbers for the last Thur and SC sold 13 more tickets yet did only 58.6% of previews.  SC's pre-sale % was more in line with Joker which also had very heavy pre-sales.

 

TSS - at this point, 2 weeks out TSS sold 6 tickets so I'm not even bothering with comps for that yet
