For the 9/23 weekend, Pearl dropped 39%. It lost 68.9% of its shows (via Katniss numbers) for the 9/30 weekend and dropped 63%.

 

Barbarian dropped 37% last weekend and is losing 72.3% of its shows this weekend. I’d be willing to bet pretty much anything that the drop is > 60% this weekend and likely in the 63-66% range.

It’s the 9/30 to 10/7 weekend for Pearl which is the comparison I was making, when it pulled like 2/3 of its theatres. Or even Scream on the 3/4 weekend (vs Batman). Like their antagonists, it’s just really difficult to kill a good WOM horror flick 

 

It was not my intent to make this a thing, but if you want to put some stakes on it, I’m listening …

Yea I felt the 9/23 to 9/30 weekend drops were more apt given the previous weekend hold was comparable to Barbarian last weekend. As for Scream 3/4, it had a higher BO % drop than it did theater % drop (57 vs 45.5%). A similar drop for Barbarian would be a nearly 70% BO drop.

 

Over 60% drop for Barbarian this weekend, you change your name to something of my choosing and if it’s under 60% I’ll change it to something of yours? This would be for 1 week.

Now is showing my actual predictions again, BUT in the chart my prediction for Ticket to Paradise is outside the prediction range, so I dont know what's happening
I've taken screenshots just in case

Very strange! Either @AndyLL fixed it, or it was a brief glitch. From everything on my end, it looks fine and back to normal.

 

But yeah unfortunately I don't have access to adjusting anyones predictions, etc. I am literally just in charge of deciding which movies to predict each week, and updating the scores for the week!

Yeah, I’m down, thought I’m not sure lowly free accounts can actually change their name? If not, I can sign every post for that week with something of your choosing

Barbarian with a $176K (-56%) Friday 🙃

 

With such limited showtimes, the week/week changes are more likely vary by day, so still in the grey zone here. (for reference, Pearl was -58/62/54 on 10/7 weekend)

Horror movies gonna fuck up my Derby.

 

Spoiler

Relatively, at least. Should still be a podium finish unless something weird happens.

Not gonna lie, Barbarian at $589K doesn’t feel like much of a victory …

And the record, despite how this turned out, I still stand by the general argument about horror being able to hold OK in the face of larger volume cuts ... but for this week overall I underestimated just how much the 1-2 punch of Black Adam and TTP was going to smack down everything else in the market (except Smile)

Here's the change in Per Show Average (using Katniss's numbers on Friday), with other titles that lost >60% of shows highlighted, and only Minions (family being the other genre that can withstand large cuts) in the same ballpark

 

Movie PSA Chng
Terrifier 2 54.60%
Minions 2 52.00%
Barbarian 47.00%
Don't Worry Darling 20.50%
Bros 13.40%
Super-Pets -11.30%
Smile -17.50%
Amsterdam -20.70%
The Woman King -24.70%
Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile -25.80%
Top Gun: Maverick -41.80%
Halloween Ends -53.10%

 

I'm still mulling over some name ideas, but I'll PM you tonight
