Sorry to ruin the party but this makes it even more frustrating about censorship. They could have 2 local blockbuster and 1 good box office performance. I am hoping for 4b.

I agree. This summer had weakest Local mix. I hope all the movies in August breakout huge to somewhat make up for weak July.

Gavin, it was totally unecessary to quit. Potus was just being Potus. He likes to prove his prediction right.

 

Everyone makes terrible predictions. Making a right prediction is like lighting strikes a bottle. I too used to be kinda sensitive about my predictions pointed wrong. But as I grew older, I found it all meaningless. Now if someone tells me my prediction is wrong, I give no sh*t.

 

Predicting box office is not even gambling. It's just a message board. One has no obligation to make sure the call is accurate. He/she can abosultely make whatever predictions he/she wants. It is all right.

Summer could indeed have been breaking records if the original big three were not pulled out.

130M at 7p.m

That is about a 6% drop relative to yesterday. If it follows the same trend, it would finish the day close to 180m.

and i was right...

again...

this time:popcorn:

NZ lost 17% of its shows but will drop less than 10% to the mid 170s.  $108m Midweek

PS looking to bump 20% for tomorrow as it loses another 10% of shows. 

the weekend could be F200m S300m S280m, 

780m/$113m  2240m/$325m total

add in 500m for next midweek and we have 2740m/$397m. 

Damn it fell short of $400m.  Perhaps it can crawl over with rest of the run

 

The Bravest 115mOD.  9.6 rating, shall be interesting to see how they run together

Wonder how the producers of The Eight Hundred might feel looking at Ne Zha's BO? I remembered TEH was predicted to be one of the highest grossing local movies of the year.

200m is likely tomorrow. I was being conservative with a 50% bump to 300m on my projection.

75%+ to 350m+ is possible

And the trade war with China escalated again today with 300 Billion more in tariffs being levied against China.

Hollywood execs are very worried that eventually CHina will include US films in their retaliation by cutting the number of US Films allowed to be distributed in China.

The next film that will get my attention in China thread is 3.5 months away. Perfect time for trade war. Be done with it.

trade war won't be done till at least nov 2020, even then no guarantee. He'll add another 15% to the 10% on the 300B and then start increasing other goods. He wants interest rates at 0% despite full employment and 2.5% year over year GDP growth.
