Piracy gives bad opening, score gives bad legs. Would have been better to open pre-piracy for sure, maybe twice as good an OW or more. But it would still drop precipitously, so the difference in terms of rev for Disney wouldn’t be that big.

Are we sure China is fully back?

 

800 had potential of 700mn IIRC last year, now 400mn range.

 

Mulan is double hit by Piracy on top of COVID. I think on 28th August, it could have opened to $15mn and $50mn weekend. In normalcy perhaps $70-80mn weekend.

imo i doubt that 800 lost 300 million bc of covid, seems too much

Piracy gives bad opening

Piracy + score gives bad legs. If a movie is not reviewed that well, and there is an option to watch it HD online and save $$$ - ppl will do that and not spend money due to its rating. Its freaking double whammy to have bad score + piracy.

Disney sucked up to Chinese government for this. 

 

This is legit funny. 

 

KARMA. 

What's funny? And what sucking?

 

It is common for any film to thank government of the region they shot the film.

 

Since you are from India, you may know what a jerk Yogi Adityanath is and Bollywood liberals like Anubhav Sinha have been vocally against BJP but in all his films you will read "Thank You CM Yogi Adityanath" because that's what is done for any film shot in UP.

This is very true.

 

A lot of hate for Chinese and China government in this thread; think people should stop.

With what's going on at the border are Indian movies opening in China anytime soon?

Indian movies aren't releasing in India right now, Chinese release is way out of the question.

Looks like TENET will have a good day afterall. May be $5mn Saturday and $4mn Sunday for $11mn weekend. That will be better than I expected on Thursday.

Very slow noon. Everything seems like a very average jump. TENET jump is good, more like $4.25mn Saturday though.
