I believe Summer school holidays til mid-August will help mid-week gross

I was pretty sure that they started a week or two ago already, but something strange does seem to be going on today. TLK looks like it may increase by like 10% from last Mon, and Aladdin...

 

For now things look headed toward a 40-50% increase from last Mon, so there’s gotta be something strange going on after all. I’m excited, so I’ll update hourly.  

 

13:20 ~105k  

14:20 ~102k

15:20 ~98k (+30%) returning to normalcy a bit, but still seems like there must be something notable affecting today   

 

16:20 Okay, can now say pretty confidently that 23:20 will basically be 50k, which means probably 96-99k admits.

Looks like a 1-3% drop, final CGV should be 49k as opposed to 50k yesterday.    

 

Predicting final numbers is easy with this one basic trick: on Mon-Thurs &Sat, 16:20 is halfway between 12:20 and 23:20   

 

Friday nights are stronger, add a bit more. Sunday mornings/afternoons are stronger, add a bit less. Part of OW and nights are stronger as well. Will only work for weekdays until school resumes, I assume.   

 

Expecting to pass 12M tomorrow, but only just barely.

Aladdin was able to keep flat at final CGV after all, with this number being up 31 people vs yesterday first numbers. Should settle around high 96s, same as yesterday, +30% weekly. Will edit Wed PS data in 20 mins

 

Wed PS (culture day):  

EXIT 85k (97% Egg) (OD)

The Divine Fury 68k (91% Egg) (OD)

SLOP2 43k (OD)

TLK 31k

Aladdin 25k   

 

Aladdin is 145k away from 12M, probably looking at a day in 140s or so. Maybe lower if I’m underestimating the openers.

Never ever did I imagine Aladdin could double Lion King is any country. Might do it in Japan and SK.

CGV Egg is the CGV audience rating metric. Somewhat like Maoyan, RT audience, etc.     

 

For just a brief amount of context from recent movies:   

Aladdin 98

TS4 98

Endgame 97

FFH 96

Parasite 94

TLK 92   

 

So EXIT’s score is pretty good, but the movies opening today are all based on a pretty small sample still and could move around a bit.

Big time underestimated their impact, 😅. The 3 big openers may well crack 1M admits combined today. Culture day is insulating the hit a bit, but it seems like tomorrow and the weekend could be brutal for the holdovers. Current CGV egg:  

EXIT 96

The Divine Fury 88

SLOP2 97   

 

12:20 - 16:20 - projected final CGV 

EXIT 119 ; 172 ; 225-238
The Divine Fury 89 ; 119 ; 149-156
SLOP2 60 ; 75 ; 90-94
TLK 43 ; 53 ; 63-67  
Aladdin 33 ; 40 ; 47-49

 

I’d guess upper end of those ranges for openers (especially SLOP) and lower end for holdovers (so roughly -6% from yesterday for Aladdin and -13% TLK), but it’s also possible that Culture Day changes the afternoon vs night balance entirely 🤷‍♂️

The openers did hit over 1M between them, Aladdin and TLK down by some -15%, and other holdovers got absolutely hammered. Discount tickets just can’t compensate for this degree of new competition.   

 

Thu PS Aladdin and TLK both 15k. Normally that would portend something like 95k admits, but if same-day business is as low a % of PS as today would be more like 55k. Not sure what to expect there, but the next 5 days or so are critical in its quest for #2 or #1 HW rank.

12:20 - 16:20 - projected final CGV 

 

EXIT 68 ; 119 ; ~170-185

TDF  25 ; 43 ; ~61-66

SLoP2 37 ; 49 ; ~55-62

TLK 26 ; 35 ; ~42-45

Aladdin 23 ; 30 ; ~ 35-38    

 

So vs the culture day OD yesterday, looking roughly:  

EXIT -23%  

TDF -58%  

SLoP2 -30%

TLK -25%

Aladdin -18%    

 

TDF is now down to 86% Egg, seems rather bad to me.    

 

Aladdin will be slightly down from last Thursday, but probably up a bit from 2 Thursdays ago when TLK was opening. And it should end *today* with very close to 12M. Early guess weekend will be about 450, but it’s uncertain exactly how much it can rebound from the triple whammy of openers.

EXIT indeed seems to be having a really nice debut. Guessing Aladdin above TLK for the weekend, and above Slop+TDF not that long after.

12M by the skin of its teeth!   

 

I’m noticed Aladdin’s CGV ratio went from like 50% before to 55% yesterday and today. Maybe some smaller non-CGV theaters lost it entirely with the new openers?

Aladdin still needs roughly 2M admissions to beat AEG. With the performance by new openers, it needs to survive this wk. If it can chances go up dramatically. Right now it's  50/50 of getting the record. Regardless, absolutely phenomenal performance in SK, some of the best legs ever in SK!!!!
