Weekend Thread: Candyman 22.37M OW | Free Guy 13.5M, PAW Patrol 6.6M, Jungle Cruise 5M

Recommended Posts

This is a very good result but lower than the mid-2s a lot of us were expecting in the tracking thread. It's undoubtedly overperforming in metro areas.

Remember the 20M OW hype? It is dead and buried.

Weren’t you predicting sub 10M OW? Aren’t you surprised? Lol

Should be around $16-17M for the weekend based on this. Not the breakout it appeared to be pre-COVID when the first trailer landed, but for a somewhat obscure IP, this seems fine.

2750 theatres for previews, exact same as Old.
 

Candyman expands to 3569 today, Old expanded to 3355. 
 

Old did 11.23x its preview, but I know Candyman will be more frontloaded because it’s a brand. Hoping it can get to high teens.

17-18 seems like a safe bet. Although it's over indexing in MTC so let's see

Really disappointing number :( Hopefully Shang Chi does well enough next weekend to keep most of the fall slate frozen.

I said this earlier also but it was dismissed. I still think lot is riding on Shang-Chi for future prospect of not only MCU releases but movies in general. 

I think 70m+ 4-day will help in keeping the momentum alive.

It cannot be understated how do or die Shang-Chi making 50m 3-day is for us having fun and going to the movies this fall.

I think Shang Chi is only gonna dictate supers and super-blockbusters' fall strategy...it's gonna have little to no effect on midsize budget/draws and smaller movies b/c they are riding and dying on the 3 main theaters (and some of the lesser ones) subscriber bases, not general audiences...

Last year, the smaller and mid-sized movies were never able to settle and stay because they didn't have tentpoles to build around because Tenet and WW84 kept moving. That's why these movies are called tentpoles - they are the foundations from which the rest of the schedule and business blooms. If they move out, the smaller movies move out too. If Bond and Eternals and Spider-Man all stay put, then they'll stay put too.

No, they moved out b/c there were no subscriber bases last year.  Regal was shut, many AMCs were, too, and those 2 bases are the "most often goers" b/c they are 3 movies/week vs Cinemark's 1/month.  

 

Now, all 3 (plus the lessers) have their subscription plans active and rolling...it's a different environment for those movies than last fall, although it's not very different for the blockbusters if they still can't pull in the non-subscribing general audiences in any real numbers...blockbusters live and die on GA...

Why would $25m budgeted Candyman opening high teens and getting the second best horror preview number of the year make other smaller budgeted films move?

I'm expecting it to have a terrible preview to weekend IM as a known IP with likely tough WOM, but I do think high teens would be more than fine if it does end up there.

Just to add on.  AMC paused the A-List in March 2020 and did not automatically re-enroll members back until July 2021.
