Can sub $100M OW happen?

Possible... but that would mean DW and another major source I put a lot of faith in regarding presales would have been drastically off. It would also go against what tracking was indicating (which was $125-130m three weeks ago). Hard to see those three sources being wrong, but with a holiday coming up, we'll see.

I still believe in 140M+ and perhaps tracking is off but presales...

 

:wintf:

 

Yeah no, who knows, maybe this is walkup heavy.

 

We'll see the preview number. 

 

 

10:00 pm shows have been rather blah

If anyone's looking for a plus side, an opening around $110m or less could mean a better multiplier than expected with the holiday coming up. I still can't shake the feeling kids will really drive business despite reviews in a Transformers-like way.

Total sales for tonight:

 

JL:

6:00: 85/124

6:00 3D: 24/78

6:45 3D: 29/78

7:30: 89/113

8:15: 58/78

8:45 3D: 37/78

Total: 322/549

 

Wonder: 40/78

 

The Star:

5:00: 6/69

7:15: 9/69

Total: 15/138

 

JL finished at 96% of/15 tickets behind Thor, which would translate to a 117.8M OW. Given the frontloaded nature of DC films, I feel fine sticking with my 105M prediction. Friday update coming shortly.

 

I should also note that Thor had less capacity despite the same number of showings.

um but the base number would be crazy low to start off with...

 

Like I cant see it doing 300 million especially with TLJ in the way with that opening.

That's my thinking as well. I keep thinking about the last several pre-Thanksgiving openers, and pretty much none of them matched OW expectations but ended up getting stronger than expected legs.

 

The same could happen here, so I don't think $300M is dead with a $110M opening, but any lower than that and it's going to be extremely difficult.

Of course not... unless they Superman Returns it. ;)

Great point. The Mockingjay movies were a strong basis for our low and high end range because of that very reason.

Goddamn, JL looks fucking pitiful during the day. The total day is running at 84% of Thor, but when you narrow it down to showings before 7 PM, it's only at 54% of Thor. Fucking hell.

Wonder is a fucking BEAST. This is at 133% of OE and 233% of DH2

The Star is 45% of Ninjago and 67% of MLP. I don't know if I should bump my 5M prediction up 1 or 2M.

I'm alllllll on board the 30M train this weekend and think it has a shot at beating Hidden Figures.

That would be incredible. I think group sales are a big share of the initial presale window but it's definitely that kind of movie that could surprise. Comps have been tricky with that one.
