Purple Minion

Mexico Box Office | Inside Out 2 still on track for $100M; great holds for Despicable Me 4 and Twisters.

Recommended Posts

The Marvels shows are up and tickets go on sale on Thursday. 

 

No Wednesday previews but rather midnight shows which is the first time since The Rise of Skywalker.

 

It's tracking... meh. Thinking The Flash/Quantumania scenario but will be a hard track with discrepancies over comps.

Killers ended up opening at #4, $800K. May have opened below Wolf in lc.

1. Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour - $43.6M/$138.5M (-53.52%)

2. Radical - $43.2M

3. The Exorcist: Believer - $15.5M/$151,7M (-57.65%)

4. Killers of the Flower Moon - $14.2M

5. The Equilizer 3 - $11.7M/54.7M (-62.5%)

6. Mira - $9.4M

7. Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie - $8.4M/$113M (-46.15%)

8. Saw X - $4M/$91.2M (-61.9%)

9. The Nun II - $2M/$384.3M (-60%)

10. Guimoon: The Lightless Door - $1.7M

 

Spectacular drop for The Eras Tour considering its nature. It is now the highest grossing concert event ever. It'll keep playing on IMAX until next weekend but maybe exhibitors give it another one on regular screens.

Radical above my expectectations and Killers of the Flower Moon on line with them. We'll see how much WOM benefits each one of them but overall a bit of a letdown for both. Equilizer took a big hit as well after the audience clash with Scorsese's film.

 

All horror titles also taking big drops but Nun II keeps pulling through to show up on the Top 10. Is all set and done to welcome Five Nights at Freddy's.

Occupancy over 85% happened before I anticipated. Wondering if 90% be possible, if so that would be insane. Of course growth will now be minimal due to lack of screens and seats.

 

Comps at this point are useless; once they all align will point to o/u $25M previews but its own limitations will bring it down by o/u $10M. Although overperformance on other chains might lift it up a few millions. This is the kind of fan-rush where demand spreads to wherever it can.

 

Out of eight locations: two are over 80% full, one over 85%, three over 90% and one over 95% which is basically only handicap and single seats spread across auditoriums.

Pace has managed to improve and even though it lags behind Spiderverse is still great considering that one had slowed down at this point. Even if we remove Wed numbers, Thu growth isn't much bigger than combined average because matinees and sub shows still hurting growth so once again... is up to final allocation to see how much accelerates on its final hours.

 

Overall I'm within the same range but higher end on OD leaning more into $40M and lower end on opening weekend at $170M. Biggest opening for a horror title since 2019's It: Chapter II.

Final allocation for Freddy coming in and is huge! Pure Thursday count is 30k seats which is close to Spiderverse's 33k seats and combining it with Wednesday it expands to 37k.

 

Main concern now is hurricane Otis which is hitting on the Pacific coast and shutting down one state. Center of the country including major markets such as Mexico City and Puebla will likely face rainy weather all rest of the week.

Overall better pace than what it had showed on previous week despite limitations and with a couple extra shows. Occupancy is nuts! Not even on par with most Marvel titles but Endgame/Infinity War levels right away.

 

I'm not including comps but as suspected Guardians and Fast X point towards $25M and Flash to $23M. Cinemex and indie chains unlike Cinepolis did add extra shows thoughout the night so likely that'll help it to push previews number o/u $18M.

Bad news coming from this side. Absolutely meh final hours despite getting final allocation before comps and pace took it now under Spiderverse.

Hopefully walk-ins get stronger but because school is hard to tell. Rainy days will factor in as well if instead we get storms but I'd rather go conservative to $160M-$170M.

30 hours update

 

125 sold / 13,979 available

 

Across the Spiderverse (36 hours) - 4,876/19,284

Barbie (30 hours) - 2,627/22,440

The Little Mermaid (30 hours) - 449/11,662

 

If sub-$100M happens that would be a first for MCU since 2016's Dr Strange. Of course this excludes Shang-Chi which was released amidst pandemic but still below Eternals.

its astonishing that entire world have suddenly decided to give up on MCU or may be specifically this movie. Thes are absolutely shocking numbers. Brazil is also showing something similar.

It is too early to say that the world has given up on the MCU entirely. The quality for recent MCU movies has been more inconsistent. That was always going to hurt in the long run. Spider-Man No Way Home, Wakanda Forever and GOTG 3 can't hold the entire universe on its back. It doesn't help that Captain Marvel over performed because Marvel lied about how important it was in marketing. People liked the film at the time but it was always due for a big drop, even in the best of times. This is the worst of times so The Marvels is going to do even worse.
