Even if “people who pay for a max account of their own watch it on that instead” isn’t the only causal mechanism, it seems pretty clear between Macho Malignant Reminiscence TSS that Max releases are putting a real drag on movies. Some of that may also be account sharing, direct piracy, movies not “feeling like” events, or WB marketing less because the financial equations around marketing are different.

FTR I used it for TSS/malignant/Reminiscence and will for Cry Macho next week. That’s 5-10 dollar tickets x4 not spent at the theater.

This would be kind of a dumb trivia, but I wonder what the most recent movie is to be #1 for each weekend in its month of release.

The Wretched just this last year (yes I know last year doesn't technically count)

Yeah yeah, should have excluded Post March 2020 explicitly.

Well before that, the most recent one was Furious 7. Paul Blart 2 came close, but no cigar

Noice.   
 

Another case where they get dethroned on the 1st of the next month.

Yeah it’s dumb because you have to open on the 1st weekend of a month to qualify. Eric found one more recently than I was expecting.   
 

Amusingly TA missed despite pulling 52% of the month because of MIB3 on the final weekend.

May is almost impossible since you will have least 2 big films opening, summer too but early August release may do it.

$220M lifetime for SC?

Yeah unless late legs are better than normal, $225M closing.

 

INT current markets will hit $200M. INDO & MAL probably $10M+. If AUS opens in time can try $450M WW.

Unless it really gets smashed by V2+NTTD I don’t see how it misses 230. And they shouldn’t hurt screens much since we have so much other chaff for them to take screens from instead. Mostly the PLFs could hurt a little.

Lol this week’s openers. My theater is literally “old white people” central (Kings Speech is the highest grossing movie of all time at this theater) and Cry Macho is bombing HARD.

Wow, now that’s some golden trivia!

 

Do you have something normal like Endgame/TFA as #2 at least or is it old white Oscar bait for a while?

@Legion of the Ten Crores

 

These are all the movies that were #1 each weekend its month of release

 

Furious 7 (2015)

Meet the Parents (2000)

The Sixth Sense (1999)

The Fugitive (1993)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) (It also dominated the months of January and February 1985)

 

You also have Avatar #1 through January 2010, Titanic #1 through January, February, and March 1998, Home Alone #1 through December 1990, plus January and February 1991, Rain Man January 1989, Good Morning Vietnam February 1988, Crocodile Dundee October 1986, Rocky IV December 1985, Back to the Future August 1985, Tootsie Jan-Feb 1983, Porky's April 1982, and On Golden Pond Feb 1982, but I'm aware that's not the question you're asking.

 

I'm sure there's more, but Box Office Mojo's data only goes back so far. 🤷‍♂️
