WEDNESDAY NUMBERS | Dunkirk 1.96M - WW 0.28M

Recommended Posts

Kids and teens are going back to school, and everything that goes along with that. Weekday grosses are going back to normal levels compared to weekends.


The dog days of late summer have begun

On the bright side for Dunkirk, it has already reached a total that many on this forum believed would be a good result at $140m. And it will reach $150m on Sunday.

We'll see if the other movies continue this trend...

So a buddy of mine went full Tele last night...and we all know the rule about that...never go full Tele.

 

He didn't just dislike Dunkirk, he hated it.  He was mad that he saw it.

About 28-29% drops for each. Probably in for a pretty rough Wednesday overall

I think you are a day behind.

Warner Bros. is one of the studios that reports daily grosses all the way until the end of the respective movie's run so yes.

 

Fox also have been doing that lately as well ...

My wife had a similar reaction. The lack of characterisation overrides the great technical aspects.

 

I consider Dunkirk the Tora Tora Tora of 2017. Great meaningless action that I just could not relate to or for that matter care.

I don't think I've ever been mad that I saw a movie.

 

Bored out of my mind maybe, but mad...?

I totally get that. I too wasn't nuts for it on first viewing, and I'm a big Nolan fan. 

 

Like all his other films, it greatly improved on second viewing. Lots of details gelled better and it became clearer - though still not 100% (which again... I have no doubt will be clearer on a third viewing). The man makes his films to be seen multiple times and things that didn't make sense, in fact, do because he packs so much into not only his story but the frame. The Dark Knight Rises went from being a film I strongly liked but felt the first act dragged and things didn't add up on first viewing to being my favorite installment in The Dark Knight Trilogy, and I love all three films. 

 

Not buying into the masterpiece hyperbole though - he already made one, InceptionDunkirk is a damn-good movie... just nowhere near his top films and that's perfectly fine!

It's only happened once for me. I've exprienced shock, awe, boredom, disappointment, joy, and a whole host of other emotions watching films, but only once have I ever been angry about seeing a film. For once I finally understood people ranting about wanting their money back. It was a very odd feeling.

I've been angry I wasted the money...Doogal was the last one like that for me (I think)...

 

Original Blair Witch was another, since I walked out motion sick and thinking the whole thing was the biggest waste and farce for a scare movie (yes, I'm ducking now, b/c I know some folks love that one...not so much Doogal)...

I think Han mentioned some schools in his area are starting today so the slightly bigger drops might play a part into that. Hopefully that means better Friday increases.

Can confirm that public schools went back today; my theater was a wasteland. My community college (along with most Florida universities) goes back in a week and a half.

A lot of Florida counties :lol:

I wouldn't say I was mad that I saw it - I enjoyed the movie overall - but I can only think of one instance where I felt mad at in a movie in a theatre, and that was during the Mandarin reveal in Iron Man 3. I know a lot of people thought it was great, but I was just pissed off because it felt so stupid to me.

These Wednesday numbers are not good so far. Maybe tomorrow will see no significant drops or better yet, slight increases across the board.

 

I saw Kidnap today, and for the first time in my life, I was alone in a movie theater. There was no one else there. The theater sat 128 and I was the sole ticket sold. The movie was enjoyable for what it offered. Although, it seemed like the first half of the movie was the car chase. 

 

I can definitely understand anyone who comes out of the Dunkirk feeling less than thrilled. I did not like it AT ALL.

Lol, so Tele really hated Dunkirk then? (Haven't been on this forum in a while so out of the loop.)

Maybe no movie will lose significant screens this week. Annabelle: Creation is the only release requiring over 3,000 screens. Dunkirk, Emoji and Spider-Man all have over 3,000, so maybe they would lose the most. Maybe 500 each?
