    2019 Box Office tracking

    While over all the weekend will over-preform last year (and years prior too), collectively the younger movies are softer than other similar slates at this time of year and age of run. 2018 was a particularly soft year in comparison to it's prior year. With the bad run of Solo and no new family...

    2019 Box Office tracking

    All things considered, it's a shame that it's ending like this. I'm not even an X-Men person, but I know how vital the success the franchise was to the creation of Marvel Studios and just as the proving ground for what an ensemble superhero movie could be. Not being particularly up on the last...

    With the Friday estimates in ... it looks fairly grim for Dark Phoenix. To be honest I think even Pets 2 is under preforming, bringing in less than half of the first's opening day. With as much marketing and general awareness of Pets 2 it's low end take is a bit surprising. Both are now...

    MCU Phase 4 and beyond

    Even though we already knew it ... I did get a 100% conformation that the May 1st 2020 movie will be Black Widow. I tried to get a conformation on the Nov 6th 2020 movie as The Eternals - but no dice. There's doesn't seem to be anything else that would be ready by then, but I always hesitate...

    Big weekend coming up with last of the Fox produced X-Men movies. The reviews for Dark Phoenix don't seem very promising unfortunately. Up against Secret Life of Pets sequel, that claimed over 100m on the first's opening weekend, I fear it's unlikely to hit #1 with even a better track record...

    A few domestic marks were passed with the Friday estimates. Disney, sans Fox, passed 1.6b Warner Bros. passes 700m Universal passed 600m

    All the signs for Toy Story 4 are looking good. (Of course I have to caveat that with presales haven't been a sure fire indicator but still positive leaning.) The Pixar movies have been trending up by quite a bit lately. With the previous Toy Story starting off with a 110m opening weekend, and...

    Not many unexpected things so far this week. Aladdin ended up with 116m, coming in at #5 all time for the Memorial Day 4-day weekend. Breaking a long streak of bad openings for Disney on that weekend (Solo, Pirates 5, Alice 2, and Tomorrowland). The world wide record watch for Endgame...

    Galaxys Edge "camping out"

    The official word will ALWAYS be that there will be no camping. No public facing Disney source will indicate that camping was ever on the table. Now that being said ... what the official info is and what happens on the ground can turn out very differently. (And the kind of Star Wars fans camping...

    Ah, a 4-day holiday weekend approaches! All 3 new releases this weekend are fairly different markets, not much direct cross over. The estimations of Aladdin's opening weekend are a bit all over the place. I feel it will land in the top half of the "Reimaginings" but I'm not expecting Jungle...

    First reports on China's final box office for Endgame is 628.64m. That was a 74.8% increase from the performance of Infinity War. For the international this will be the first weekend with less markets, this will drop the general holds.

    Maybe? This is kind of a grey area of who gets credit/blame on an inherited project. If it was successful people would be likely to count it as a Disney "win". Personally I'm keeping all the former Fox properties that were already made separate from the main Disney produced stuff until the first...

    Anyone that uses the term "Mary Sue" like they mean it is likely an 8-year-old sneaking on the internet while their parent/guardian is not looking.

    Correct. It would be up to the 2.62 with the Monday $ on it. As for the international market, there are a few lagers on final numbers and that's typical. But the estimates for Endgame have been quite close so far. It could make up some ground but, I'd expect a boost of more than 1-1.5%...

    Some movement in our top ranks after the weekend. Lionsgate was the big jump, up to #4, with the release of John Wick 3 bringing in 56.8m and dethroning Endgame for the weekend. Endgame itself is at 771.3m domestic and 1.84b international, for a total of 2.61b world wide. It's just 171.1m...

    If it gets within that kind of distance, they will push as best they can. It's more likely that Endgame will be in the 65-90m short of the record near the deep end (16 weeks+) of it's run. At that point little short of some kind of exclusive content bonus will make that up that kind of box...
