This is a very curious performance this weekend. Not sure what it actually means. So confused.

 

Friday's actual performance isn't curious at all though.

 

+105%, similar to Logan and slightly behind Venom (+130%).

It is very curious in the context of the Sat increase being so small.

So panic mode again and relief after the final number?

It's the only way.

Apart from War Dogs, Phillips’ films for WB have made money. I imagine whatever he has in mind to do next will likely be greenlit.

BTW Parasite's numbers are looking to be the biggest PTA of any movie since La La Land almost three years ago. Impossible to say where exactly it will go from here, but that's a great start nonetheless.

No movie that opened with that kind of PTA has finished below 13m and subtitles aside Parasite is a lot more accessible in terms of pacing/tone/entertainment value than films like The Master and Inside Llewyn Davis, not to mention Oscar nods in the main categories will give it a second life. High teens at least, let's go

Ad Astra is near masterpiece. Long Days and Souvenir are also good, interesting but challenging. Not for people who see 3 movies per year and only blockbusters.

so not for the general audience?

If it continues to lag a bit behind Venom/Logan, you could expect something like +40-50%. Maybe Joker plays better on weekdays for whatever reasons (it did have a great first week), but +20% would be strangely low so let's wait and see.

Being a little optimist, I am thinking of 19.5-20 Saturday, but it could stay around 19 range only.

 

Now a lesson. This is data from around 50% of market at this time of day and we are at a level that a 1-2mn up down will be considered a big off, for a 150 opener that ain't big deal, and just about extra 5 walkups in each show in evening could change that, so its not an exact science. Learn to take data as it is intended to. When I post an early update, that is projection based on basically 20% data point. That theoretically is the best possible projected number at that time, post noon things get a lot clear, unfortunately that is midnight in India, and I need to sleep.

 

TL;DR any number before noon PST is purely projection, which should be correct theoretically everyday, practically there are lot of factors. The first number post 5 or 6 PM PST is +/- 2-3% or +/-1mn off at max, anything after 10 PM are virtually actuals.

10-15% increase would truly be abnormal. If it ends up being accurate, what would be the explanation? Jared Leto's plight hitting audiences hard, making them stay home?

19m would be like 12% increase from friday. When did we last have columbus day and Canadian Thanksgiving fall on the same day.

 

Edi:Seem to happen every year. There is no precedent for a movie to increase that low. Joker 1st saturday saw better increase. I would prefer to wait until evening to make a call.

Maybe it's almost flat on Sunday. If nothing else, it would make the Deadline updates interesting.

48 million

58 million

50 million

55 million

Impossible, basically everyone is happy that he is no longer Joker.

I imagine he wouldn’t be interested and I suspect JK has final say on who gets to direct hence why David Yates has been at the helm for 6 films. 
 

I’d personally like to see Phillips and RDJ do another film together,
