I still think it will drop 50% or more; TS re-release only lost 15% of its theaters when extending on its 3rd weekend but still lost 60%

Posted by: xiayun on Sep 26, 20:23 in response to TheWeekendWarrior's post I was going with Dolphin Tale until I saw that Lion King...

I'll admit The Lion King doesn't have to face anything like Where the Wild Things Are, but normally these last minute changes would lead to small Friday increases.

Thanks for the numbers, btw. {nm}   Paul2k on Sep 26, 11:38

I find it hard to believe that Number in 3,000 theaters will make less than Courageous in 1100... been seeing non-stop commercials for #. {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Sep 26, 11:45

i find your hard-to-believ-idness hard to believe. number as well as house look terrible. 50 looks like wait for cable. {nm}   islander on Sep 26, 11:56

If 50 looks like wait for cable, what would it take for a dramedy to be worth seeing in theaters? {nm}   tribefan695 on Sep 26, 12:16

i was thinking more along the lines of people not really wanting to pay to see films about cancer. i would think one could look   islander on Sep 26, 12:54

94% on RT, for what it's worth {nm}   tribefan695 on Sep 26, 12:57

I have seen countless ads, too. But I saw the same number of ads for I Don't Know How She Does It. {nm}   dsbman on Sep 26, 11:57

Yeah, same here; the trailer has been received well from what I saw, especially the last joke {nm}   xiayun on Sep 26, 12:51

Ah, September, the least exciting month of the year box office wise. {nm}   BionicMoron on Sep 26, 12:25

Really? I think I'd go with February. Either way, they're both pretty bad. {nm}   Chest Rockwell on Sep 26, 14:30

February has VD and President's Day weekend, which gets bigger releases. {nm}   BionicMoron on Sep 26, 18:33

After a record-setting weekend for September, this weekend bounds to come back down some especially with great WOM for current top holdovers {nm}   xiayun on Sep 26, 12:50

So then will Lion King be #1 again? {nm}   JDolphin on Sep 26, 14:33

Dolphin Tale will be more likely {nm}   xiayun on Sep 26, 14:53

I was going with Dolphin Tale until I saw that Lion King wasn't losing that many theaters but I haven't looked at actuals yet {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Sep 26, 19:55

I really don't think that many people paid attention to the "limited engagement" thing... I never noticed it mentioned in commercials   TheWeekendWarrior on Sep 27, 03:46

was referring Toy Story 1+2 re-release {nm}   xiayun on Sep 27, 09:22
