Historical comps for this particular Friday very rarely show family films with more than 110% 

 

Fridays from now to Easter will be uneven due to the spread of mid-term / spring breaks. 

 

25m will historically speaking be a very hard to hit number based on the Wednesday drop. 

I mean, Lego Batman did increase 137% on the same Friday though, Kung Fu Panda 3 did 132% increase, and Peter Rabbit did 116% increase. I think The Lego Movie 2 would be a bad comp because it faced HTTYD 3 that weekend. I think over 110% increase is possible. Since it's facing Call of the Wild which is some competition, I'd say 115%-120% increase would be a reasonable expectation.

You can't compare a movie from 6 years ago lol. A lot has changed since then and the more recent comps show that. I doubt it going sub-110% but it's not getting that kind of bump either.

In 2003 and 2014 there was valentine day on friday, so i can compare only this years😉 

 

And i'm not saying it will do +169% i'm saying based on historical comps it will do better than 110%.

Any post-President's day weekend works fine though. Valentine's day isn't going to affect the day-to-day holds for a movie the weekend after Valentine's.

Did you check year after year or it's just your guess?

So why you are saying ,,lol'' if we agree with each other?

Sorry, I thought you were expecting a Lego Movie type bump.

@1Robert1 the conversation about sonic is not new and if I was looking at animated films as my only source then I (and several other trackers) would be wrong. 

I admit that I didnt look at 2014 since the focus of the conversation the last couple days hadnt been back 6 years. However, your asinine inclusion of 2003 does you no favors since any decent box office follower understands that the data is not compatible. 

I also acknowledge that the data is skewed due to last year with Dragon 3 sinking a better rise for Lego 2 on this weekend. Should I have said 120 instead of 110, yes, its an error that I made 🤷‍♂️ as is not usuing a qualifier such as the words "much more." 

However, if you look at your 2014 example and see the weekend after this, you will notice the whole point of the conversation (that this weekend is skewed down due to the past holiday) is accurate as Lego movie went back to having massive jumps as is normal for family animated films. 

Sonic is missing the element of being an animated film, among other issues that helped buoy its box office last weekend which depending on how it plays out could considerably depress the performance ala something like Alita last year (doubtful, but anything is possible.)

I included 2003 cause you said for this particular Friday you didn't say post presidential day friday, but ,,for this particular Friday'' because of that i assume that you was talking about 21st february friday, exactly week after valentine day. So you said 110% instead of 120%, and didn't check year 2014, but your post isn't asinine, and what i wrote is asinine because YOU didn't wrote what exactly for this particular Friday means for you.

I blocked your posts for some time, today unblocked and it was clearly mistake. Bye.
