Dune OS run puts a fork in the bomb BS. 36.8M official w/o CIS and 37.5M-37.6M with CIS are terrific numbers. 

 

F9 still isn't done yet lol so movies that want to pass it OS will have to work their butts off. :lol:

You expect a lot from American media and box office community. TENET did better OS than Dune but was still reported a bomb because of low US number despite everyone knowing it didnt release in half the country.

 

In these same markets of Dune, TENET opened with $33.5M. Excluding Russia $29M, which is same as Dune.

I think media was harder on Tenet because of the backlash against Nolan.

 

If Dune opens with 33M (which is very possible), it will be seeing as a win because it would be the biggest WB opening, even if it's nothing special. Then if drops 70% on second weekend everyone will blame HBO Max and use international numbers to proof it have an audience, that's it.

I agree but I also think that they didn't adjust expectations when Tenet came out and, for reasons I forgot, it was expected to save the cinema. OTOH, Dune is opening in a different environment where HBO Max shadow is hanging over it so any underperformance dom will be blamed on Max as it should. That turns its OS success into a proof against hybrid release. Tenet just had ridiculous expectations attached to it despite dire WW market outlook due to pandemic.

I would question the actual HDR nature of a torrent download tbh. Wouldn’t it be a compressed version? 

 

It would be the exact same version as HBO Max. It can also be played 24p which would technically make the torrent better quality than the the HBO app.

Yeh I wouldn’t describe HBOMax as being in native 4K anyway. But torrents downloaded online certainly aren’t.

Very curious about Japan, Korea and China. In UK should be huge.

 

 

 

I'm extremely excited about Dune and really hope it does well. But not getting any buzz over here about it, don't know what basis the idea it would be huge here is based on - doesn't come across to me as being aligned to mainstream British audiences. Maybe I'm wrong. The late opening here really, REALLY won't help. Should have got in before Bond, not waited for after.

The book is huge at UK, pretty much because of this.

 

And yes, ideally it would be opened this weekend, but at least is not too close to Bond, it will be on the 4th weekend when Dune drops.

So any guesses on OW for DEH?

Based on presales in Canada I’m looking at, I’d guess 13-17.

Are there any markets left for The Suicide Squad to open? It will really finish at $165 million worldwide? That would be close to an 80% drop from the 2016 film, that's insane.

yeah, as others have said - it’ll be the same file that’s on HBO Max.  It’ll be available uncompressed if people want it.  Again, I’m not condoning any of it of course, but it’s futile to ignore it. 
 

I’m just happy the movie is out for weeks internationally, before it’s compromised with no going back.

Watched Promare on the big screen today and was surprised by the crowd there (although I guess not that surprising considering the number of people into anime here). About the same size as the Shang-Chi crowd.

Lot of MCU 4th weekends confounded by some holiday or another.  
 

The best 4th Sat drop is Gotg -28%, which is very mildly inflated by returning to school increasing the Sat share of moviegoing. Next are TDW, DS1, and Ragnarok all chilling around -30-31%… on Thanksgiving Sat.    
 

So if SC can score a “best in MCU” 4th Sat drop to match its best in MCU 3rd Sat drop, that looks like a hold of 69-72% for ~ 6.75-7.05M and a weekend of ~14.9M-15.5M.   
 

This is an optimistic case, but it could target TROS 4th weekend gross of 15.187M
