It also assumes that TFA sold out of basically every showtime all weekend which while not impossible is unlikely.

 

I based the numbers on TFA's saturation rate. Endgame would need that kind of show count @ the same saturation rate + current movie price average.

It'll be interesting to see how it goes regardless.... speaking of here are the Endgame sales for the theater nearest to me.

 

Thursday 728/849 (85.7%)

Friday 759/942 (80.6%)

Saturday 734/1042 (70.4%)

Sunday 398/1042 (38.2%)

Total: 2619/3875 67.6% (The reason the total number of tickets is different from what i gave yesterday is that that number included broken seats we aren't selling and seats that aren't sold in case someone's seat is broken or we double sell tickets, they add up over 40+ showings.)

I'm tempted to look over every theater in my area for Thursday at least.

 

Edit: Nevermind of the 7 theaters near me only 3 do assigned seating. Kind of surprised only 1 of the 4 regals does Assigned seating tbh.

I think the Deadline article on predictions said a $300m o/w would require about 70% saturation on 12,000 screens (though how that calculate considering the disparity of screen size and ticket prices is beyond me but they have the nationwide numbers)

 

That interesting, what is the average screen size, if it is 150 ticket and the average price quite high during a movie like first weekend it could mean

 

Say a 55m previews, it would mean that the weekend capacity of 12,000 screen would be about 350m (350 * .7 = 245m).

 

That $29,166 per screen, at $10 ticket average and 150 seat by screen average, that would be 19-20 show during the weekend by screen.

 

I imagine those movie get all the biggest screen and the biggest ticket price, so it could be more $12, 180 seats for a 13 shows by screen average.

 

Sound reasonable imo.

I don't think I've ever been in a showing with over 350 people, much less over 900. Can't imagine what that's like.

Speaking just for L.A., TFA had a 4 a.m. IMAX show sell out at the Chinese within 24 hours, and that's a thousand seater.

One of, if not the most famous theaters in the world. It's the place where actors/celebrities imprint their hands and feet in cement. I know TFA had a 2am and 5am show time there, and TLJ and IW both had the 2am time also. We will see if they add a 630am show time to the docket for Endgame.

So well behind TFA, meh.

 

The name through me off a bit I've heard of The Chinese Theater. TCL Chinese Theaters had me confused though.

I know it's not a popular opinion but I still think Endgame will not beat TFA Thursday previews. 

 

I have quick checked many theatre around my area. The presales for TFA were amazing. 

 

Also TFA late night shows were almost full for Thursday at this time before release.

Perhaps it won’t. My original prediction, before the presale insanity, was $10m over IW previews.

I know it may not look like it from either the top line number, or the comps on "after five days of sales", but EG really is slowing down.  Many many many showtimes didn't sell a single ticket.

 

Which, well, makes sense when one looks at the top line number of 247 tickets sold out of 221 showings. :lol:

 

But, no, really; absolutely entering into the slowdown phase here.  Quite a few of the tickets were from showings added yesterday or Thursday.  In fact, it does kinda appear as if folks are lurking in the shadows a bit, waiting for new showings, and then grabbing the good seats then. 

 

Won't be surprised one jot to see it dip under 50 tickets sold on any given day in the coming days. Maybe even lower. Might just depend on whether or not a showing gets added or not.

 

...

 

And, heaven help me, I see even one Sad Tennant reaction when those inevitable sub-50 ticket days come... :lol:

Very funny, @JB33.  But it doesn't count when you intentionally drop a Sad Tennant on my post preemptively complaining about Sad Tennant reactions. :lol:

Okay, fine. Mostly inevitable. :P  

 

Probably will come down to whether or not any showings get added this week.  If it doesn't happen by this coming Saturday (the 13th), then sure, it won't happen.  But dunno.. Call it a gut instinct that we'll see at least one sub-50 on the "exact" comp. :)

The worst previews to OW MCU multi is 6.59 isn't it? Ant-man & the wasp? Could we get to 320mil!
