Today was Black Widow's review drop day, so all in all the BW comp didn't take as much of a hit as it could have.  Pace isn't exactly great though, as it's pretty much stagnant from yesterday. 

 

Starting tomorrow, those Cinema West locations start to be rolled back into the BW comp (two tomorrow, the last on Thur), so starting Thursday the BW comp will be unadjusted once again, and might jump around a bit due to the extra info being added to the comps.

 

Not much else to add, as everyone else has pretty much already said it.

From last night (24-hour pace, posted late):

 

Eternals MTC2

 

Thurs:

Showtimes: 1967 (+11)

Seats Sold: 34868/320362 (+2011)

Total $ Sales: 494838 (+15705)

 

BW Comp (adjusted for Ontario and ~10% higher ATP): 10.35 million

 

Bleh. The comp is in an okay spot right now but it's going to take a beating this week unless the pace improves. The pace was indeed up from yesterday but needs to keep going up, and from everyone else's numbers I'm not sure that's happening.

 

Fri:

Showtimes: 3720 (+1)

Seats Sold: 26684/622149 (+2085)

Total $ Sales: 357076 (+26479)

 

BW Comp (Ontario + ATP adjusted): 23.3 million. 

 

In a bit of a better spot than Thurs, but will still have trouble if the pace doesn't improve fast.

Demon Slayer (T-3)

MTC1 - 58883/338825 869260.00 1997 shows (322 theatres)  +12445 // 201 sellouts

MTC2 - 61991/304361 861013.10 2327 shows(275 theatres) +10829 // 240 sellouts

 

I did not update yesterday but its definitely slowing down relative to GVK. Especially at MTC1. Good thing is its still slightly ahead in $ value due to higher ticket prices but GVK will overtake there as well as final push wont be that strong. GVK did 395K between the 2 MTC.  I think somewhere between 250-300K would be a good range. I think that will translate to 6.5-7m OD. But this movie would be hard to project as it has a niche. I could still be overestimating it big time.

MTC2 - 50679/324794 686766.07 2717 shows(276 theatres) +6853

 

As I posted above, dramatic increase in show counts for DS. I expect the BO to increase at faster pace in next few days. For MK the PS is chugging along very well and  it has caught up at MTC2 at least in ticket sales. But I expect DS PS to also increase at better rate soon with increased showcount. Overall BO should see a big boost.

 

MK seem to have few shows on thursday at MTC2(none at MTC1). Its at 647/17075 6158.22 103 shows(19 theatres). Almost no impact to overall OD BO.

DS comps.   
 

MHA is at 60% of DS previews in gross, 85% of Friday. Those comp to like 2.3 and 4.8, but there is a lot to be careful with here:

DS way more anticipated property, as reflected in almost 3x higher sales for Th+Fri

In many places capacity was getting maxed, which hurt its PSm

MHA may also easily have capacity issues given much greater competition

DS was back during the ending stages of the spring pandemic, and regal was closed, screwing with MTC ratios

 

Geomean of the comps is 3.3M (also the result of a straight comp on Th+Fr), suppose final 5 days PS growth*PSm is a little better and MTC2 ratio lower, could go for 4.5+ OD?  
 

Hero’s Rising lost half its locs on Sunday, afaik that won’t be an issue here but hopefully a scraper can confirm. Without that I estimate FSS would have gone:

1.87

2.59

2

 

For a true IM of 3.5 or so. In this case Friday will be more frontloaded since it’s day 1 instead of day 3, though also Sat will be Day 2 instead of day 4 with less demand burned off. Maybe 3x? 
 

TL;dr Yesterday I said the following to Menor

The really crude lots of napkin math Hero’s Rising comp gives like 12. PS also have that as possible imo though also crude. Expecting it to be somewhat close to winning the weekend at least.

 

 

Various comps and raw data under spoiler for post length sake 😛    
 

MHA OD combined is +15% D-5 to D-3. DS previews +21%, DS OD +36%. Could conceivably have better final/D-3 despite the worse 5/3, but it’s not a great pace. Comps are now:

prev 2.2

OD 4.1 

geomean 3

combined 3  

 

Even if the straight comp drops to 2.5, should be able to do 3+ in actuality given changed MTC2 ratio. Unclear what IM will be, but I am thinking 3rd for the weekend +-1.

Soho is looking to be so Dolby Cinema heavy that the format is probably gonna take it to high single digits all on its own with how dead regular showings are looking to be. Which isn't unexpected for a movie that appeals to a rather niche demographic.

From Variety

 

Antlers, Soho 5M

Dune 17 to 19

 

This year’s Halloween weekend is looking to deliver on the scares, but the month may end with a whimper rather than a bang. New nationwide releases “Last Night in Soho” and “Antlers” aren’t expected to jolt the box office, with both films tracking single-digit debuts around $5 million.

 

Without much competition, last weekend’s champion “Dune” is expected to dominate again. The Warner Bros. and Legendary sci-fi epic is projected to decline 55% from its $41 million opening weekend, which should put ticket sales around $17 million to $19 million between Friday and Sunday.

That Dune number feels optimistic, but maybe the sequel announcement and looming loss of theatres really will help it out this weekend (a sort of "last chance" effect). 

 

That Soho number seems low at first, but I've seen really no major marketing push for it. And tracking ITT is pointing that way, too.

BW Comp (adjusted for Ontario and ~10% higher ATP): 10.35 million

Are you expecting Eternals to end up with 10% higher ATP!!!. I looked at ticket prices between Venom/Eternals and increase is nowhere close to that. May be 3/4%. Of course a movie like Dune will have higher ATP as Imax skew was lot higher. But Eternals is big enough by the time it opens there should be no skew.

BW, not Venom. BW had matinees in the summer.

Would that make that much of a difference overall. Previews BO is skewed towards evening shows. We will know for sure based on final data. 

 

I quickly looked at few big theaters like empire 25($2 increase), Lincoln ($2 increase from 25 to 27 !!!) and Metreon($1.50 increase) from BW. I am surprised chains decided to increase so much during these times.
