There's been a lot of reports of sold out showings after the expansion but surely Disney is fudging the numbers with... Toy Story? Aladdin?

Hahaha, yes.

If they'd take away then those two would have bad drops/results. Funnily, they have not bad drops it seems.

 

Sometimes I do not know if to think its funny or sad how/why such illogical ideas even come up

With Aladdin looking increasingly likely to hit 4x, this is the tiny club it would join for 4x 30m+ summer openers this decade:

 

Wonder Woman - $103m OW/4x

Aladdin -$91m OW/???

Inception - $62m/4.7x

Despicable Me - $56m/4.5x

Ted - $54m/4x

Fudging usually isn't taking away, but counting the money 2x no ?

 

From what I understand, you sell a drive-in double header say 14$ and you count that 14$ toward both movies instead of taking away from the older one and attributing most of the sales to the newer release.

 

That it is way more fudged that one would initially thought.

Fudging should be legal ever since Disney fudged AWIT, a movie that exactly 1 person cared about. So if something like that gets fudged than why not movies that people actually care to see cross certain milestones? And EG is getting to #1 w/o fudge so it's a mute point.

In the leaked e-mails they seem to prefer word like push or creative efforts than fudge.

(ILM already has offices in San Franicisco,  London, Singapore and Vancouver)

 

More on this:

 

Lucasfilm's Industrial Light & Magic to Open Sydney Studio (THR)

 

Quote

Lucasfilm's visual effects division Industrial Light & Magic is expanding its footprint with a base at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney.

 

The opening is planned for later this year, hopefully in time for its artists to contribute work to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, according to Rob Bredow, executive creative director and head of ILM. Skywalkeris slated for a Dec. 20 release.

 

Plans call for Luke Hetherington, who heads ILM's Singapore studio, to additionally serve as executive in charge of the Sydney base and split his time between Singapore and Australia. Bredow says he aims to have between 50-100 employees in Sydney by year's end, and continue to grow in 2020.

 

ILM is headquartered in San Francisco, and also maintains bases in Vancouver and London.

"Sydney is an ideal location for our fifth studio," says Bredow. "There is abundant artistic and technical talent in the region, which are both keys to ILM's culture of innovation." It also gives clients access to the Australian Federal PDV Offset and new NSW PDV rebate, which combined could represent as much as a 40 percent rebate, Bredow estimates.

 

In addition to Rise of Skywalker, productions in the works at ILM include Terminator: Dark Fate, Jungle Cruise and The Irishman. The 44-year-old studio has earned 15 Academy Awards for best VFX and 31 Scientific and Technical Achievement Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In addition to feature films, it works on TV, immersive entertainment and themed attractions.

 

mentioning here instead of the TROS thread as there might be some Aussies interested in applying or know folks interested in applying.

It held way better than SMH. I understand that movies released on Tuesday or Wednesday tend to have softer second weekend drops but still. :) remember Deadline's "marginally better hold"? :lol:

TS4 weekends as a multiple of Aladdin’s gross on the same weekend:  

1st 9.13x

2nd 5.9x

3rd 4.51x

4th  3.39x  

 

if we extrapolated forward using the drops this weekend:

5th 2.56x

6th 1.92x 

7th 1.45x

8th 1.09x

9th 0.82x   

 

With Aladdin beating TS4 on Aug 16-18.  In reality I expect TS4 will hold better than that on average and Aladdin worse, so they might or might not cross before one of them receives a huge LD bump.

And that's a great train of thought. The genre is obviously profitable if they keep budget up to certain level (BR and ASIB exceptions nothwithstanding) and they don't need bigger budget for this genre. I remember that there was some big western bomb that had ridiculous budget for the genre. That's where they go wrong. You can't assign EG budget to everything. 

La La Land aswell. $446m on a $30m budget.
