Interesting factoid: They Shall Not Grow Old is the fifth 2018 documentary to cross $10M. Is that a record?

 

And none of these movies were nature, concert, or political docs (well, RBG is arguably an exception, but it's not really a Moore/D'Souza kind of movie). Pretty cool stuff

Pretty sure, yeah.

 

Speaking of records, I'm pretty sure if The Upside crosses $100M, it'll be the first movie rescued by another studio from its dead original studio to do so.

Not a bad start to the year for Sony. Miss Bala underperformed but Escape Room and A Dogs Way Home met expectations. Not to mention Spiderverse is still making money. This is probably going to be one of their better years on record.

Their slate for the rest of the year looks pretty great. Men in Black, Spider-Man, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Zombieland 2, Charlie's Angels, the Mr. Rogers movie, Jumanji, and Little Women all have different levels of potential.

People assumed Aquaman would crawl to a billion. Good to see the film get another extra 100 million. Hoping for a breakout in Japan.

Japan is probably the only Market where super hero movies aren’t that big (apart from Spider-Man ) I wonder why 🤔

Because they got their own superheroes

Apparenty They Shall Not Grow Old missed the deadline for Best Doc, hence why it wasn’t nominated. Could have been an easy front-runner

4.6 os weekend, 783.4 cume (os weekends more often than not seem to revise upwards with actuals) 

4.8 dom weekend, 323.5 cume

= 9.4 ww weekend, 1107 cume

 

current markets should take it to 1130 with a fair shot at 1150 including japan

The DreamWorks Animation threequel doesn’t open until Feb. 22, and already there’s a want-to-see for How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden WorldThe Dean DeBlois-directed feature racked up $2.5M in Universal-Fandango early access screenings yesterday, a figure that’s more than the Amazon Prime previews for Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($1.86M) and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation ($1.28M).

 

Hidden World also made more than Warner Bros. sneaks for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part last Saturday, but that pic had a smaller footprint at 550 locations which played one show at 2pm, grossing an estimated $400K-plus (that’s an industry estimate, not studio-reported). Hidden World played at just over 1,000 at 3PM yesterday. Most of Lego Movie 2‘s locations were sold out with older teens and younger adults showing up. Hotel Transylvania 3 played at roughly 1,000 theaters from one 3PM showtime on a Friday, while Jumanji 2 previewed at 1,200 theaters on a Friday at 7PM.

It looks like The Upside will reach $100M dom. It is only the third day of February and we already have a contender for most surprising box office run of 2019.

Escape Room has become a low-key early year sleeper hit. Gonna finish with $55M+ against a $9M budget. 

And it’ll pass $100m worldwide next weekend!
