Not to worry! The trailer was also commonly placed in front John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.

Goood!

 

So this is getting 3000 theaters. Maybe confidence on studio's part?

Thry have the right to be confident for sure. Films like The Shallows and 47 Meters Down prove that the audience is there to make this a sleeper hit even without an overabundance of marketing. I'm counting on this film to laugh in the face of the Netflix conundrum while a mid-budget film still theoretically could.

Hopefully it finds audience. I'm mostly worried about horror oversaturation as there are 3 horror movies still in cinemas.

Paramount should have pushed this one way harder.

 

They completely dropped the ball and now they are sitting on a 100% RT Horrormovie nobody knows is coming out. 

This could have been a chance for them.

I almost feel like they should have just moved this to Netflix since Paramount and Netflix have a deal. I feel it would have been more successful that wa.y

Paramount is dumb as fuck for hiding reviews and not giving this a bigger push. At least marketing on par with The Shallows.

That's why I say almost.

 

This looks like it would be a batshit bonkers experience in theaters.

 

Either way, this movie was left to die.

Was the budget that big?

Not really. $17 Million if Google is correct.

 

But the film needs an opening above $10M to allow positive WOM and strong legs to have the chance to help.

I think this film is being underestimated. It won't do The Meg numbers of course, but it will surprise the analysts.

Reviews coming in fast now and still positive. Makes you wonder why Paramount dumped it and gave it no advance screenings

Paramount also thought that Annihilation was bad and that Suburbicon would be an Oscar player, so their judgement isn't the best.

This honestly should've stayed in its original late August date and been given a bigger marketing campaign. Could've at least pulled 47 Meters Down numbers.

Yep, or another Don't Breathe. That movie was released the weekend before Labor Day weekend, as dead a release date as there is, yet pulled in a $26.4M opening weekend and legged its way to $89.2M domestic.

Did they think it was bad? I thought they just seen it as a tough sell?

I was originally planning on seeing Spider-Man tomorrow, but I may just have to see this instead. Spider-Man will always be there. This looks to be a potential cult classic and might not be in theaters for very long.
