The Box Office Buzz and Tracking Thread: Electric Boogaloo

Recommended Posts

Soho’s doing better than Bad Times at the El Royale here for what it’s worth. Based on business in my area, 10M wouldn’t surprise me. But I live in a university town that’s also full of old people too so, probably overindexing here a bit.

Unlikely. This will have big sunday drop and Marvel is an established franchise. But if you want optimistic outlook don't ask me 🙂 @Avatar Legion or @charlie Jatinder can provider better response for sure 🙂

 

Big question is what is the next catalyst for big bump. I dont think reviews will have any effect anymore plus marketing is already at high gear. So major action will be seen only final few days. Let us see how sunday is. That is when Venom 2 went CRAY. But it was trending up every day that day and pace was accelerating at a really fast clip. Here it has been flat this week from monday onwards. 

 

Also @charlie Jatinder. Not sure what to extrapolate to. This will be PS heavy. 

 

MHA MTC1(T-1)

Friday - 36718/240259 286134.69 1541 shows. 

 

 

I simply think the not good reviews is preventing a certain amount of people from booking ticket online and those people may come out on the weekend if the audience reception is good.

The ATP seems like may have some error. MTC 2 had 13.5+ ATP and in Harkins they are doing $12.5 flat rate for every show. 

Weird. You are right. Ignore $ value. 14062 tickets(472 shows) sold have no ticket price. I looked at Eternals and I am getting data for all of them. So something specific about this movie output. I have to debug. For now go with at least $15 ATP or even higher. 

 

Edit: I think I figured it out. Ticket price is coming as 15 instead of 15.00 and my regex failed. Let me see I can get updated number. This is specific to MHA.

Awful last 3 days for Eternals relative to the other 2 MCU films reviews drop. Things can improve, but if they don't we may be missing $9M previews & $70M OW here.

THU - $3.35M

FRI - $2.7M

SAT - $2M

SUN & Rest - $1.4M

Just as a one time dessert. I was able to run MTC2 previews in super slow mode with 5 secs break between each check. Took over 4 hours. @Menor can do way better for sure.

Soho's sales were miserable around here and tomorrow's looking to be not much better. I guess it was just destined to do poorly no matter what if Anya becoming a star overnight during the course of its one year delay did nothing to boost ticket sales.

It's very much a movie that needed strong reviews and buzz to break out of its niche, (which it doesn't have) and opening right between Dune/Dispatch and Eternals isn't going to do it any favors.

I reaaly doubt even with strong reviews. The Last Duel had high 80's in RT from critics with starpower in Damon, Affleck, Driver and the breakout actress and Emmy winner in Jodie, directed by Ridley Scott and yet the movie only managed to open under 4m.

 

If the movie is not Marvel/remake/sequel, the BO result speaks for itself. That's the reality.

Last 7 days pace is +15% of Black Widow, so that's encouraging, but matching next 3 days pace seems hard. Will do another check on T-3 day. Should go over 5300 by then.

Just awful. Added 532 seats in last 3 days, compared to 893 of Black Widow & 696 of Shang Chi. The major locations pace was good like Cerritos 16, Estrella Falls but the smaller markets barely added anything, so much so its disaster there. When I started the run, felt encouraging, end was just blech.

 

Need bumps in final days.

True, it's actually Wright's lowest-rated movie on RT. Having a premise that just seemed too convoluted to convey in 30-second TV spots also assured it would struggle to find much appeal beyond its limited demographic.

Outside of Baby driver, none of Edgar's movies had good run in the BO even though they were higher rated in RT. So, I don't know why some are overanalyzing this. Lol.

Eternals is looking to be the closest the MCU has had to a "for die-hard fans only, everyone else need not apply" entry so far since becoming a full-blown brand name. Which will make legs more interesting than the opening since their audience that will show up no matter what at this point is too huge for bomb status.

I think I am not getting all of the shows. I get only 1968 shows and 39442 for previews. Maybe I need to double check something in my show counter.

I thought I was pessimistic when I predicted Eternals but Charlie took it to another level. But the key thing is there is no catalyst at the moment. Current pace will put it well behind BW and SC will start to catch up. 

 

This is behaving closer to Dune/Bond than a Marvel movie at this point. We need @john2000 sacrificed to make a difference.

It's pace did not increase at all from last week. That trend is beyond disastrous so I can definitely see it plunging in the final week (relative to others). But more likely in line with your prediction.
