Would someone please explaing the $312.50 joke to this newbie? {nm}

Posted by: DTravel on Mar 19, 15:31 in response to accountant_4_Jesus' post So it's going all 312.50 on us now?

DL: Crazy speculation that [HGAME] could gross $125 million its opening 3-day weekend... is more and more looking like reality.   Antibody on Mar 19, 15:02

Who said it was crazy? My daughter read the books. Just like she read all the Potter books. Shes my guru for this type of movie. {nm}   tradermark on Mar 19, 15:11

TWW for one. After all his anti-HGAME, I expect his prediction to be less than $100M. {nm}   Antibody on Mar 19, 15:13

I think I saw him say that he now thinks it will do opening night what he thought before it would do OW {nm}   Dales on Mar 19, 15:18

So, the studio is estimating $95 ... not $125, not $115, not $105 ...   Jane_Citizen on Mar 19, 15:11

Print me money! {nm}   thatpj on Mar 19, 15:13

Yes. They tend to be very conservative in their estimates especially when leaking them to press. {nm}   GMov on Mar 19, 15:18

There is nothing better than blowing out your predictions. If they really think its $125, they are not going to say it, imo {nm}   dioneta on Mar 19, 15:26

So what they're really saying is they're confident there's NO WAY it will make less than $95. {nm}   Jane_Citizen on Mar 19, 16:31

Those presales still only add up to a max of $18M. I'm taking the "wait-and-see" approach. {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Mar 19, 15:16

One can extrapolate those presales against similar genre films in the past. {nm}   Antibody on Mar 19, 15:19

What were the presales for HPOT8 and TWLI4 one week out from their release, if you have that data? {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Mar 19, 15:22

Think about it. I bet most presales are midnights. They only need about 6 times that for 125mm. {nm}   tradermark on Mar 19, 15:24

I found a Variety article about HPOT8 pre-sales.   flatlynr on Mar 19, 15:28

Thanks for that. I appreciate it. I'll get back to people with a message about grosses for midnights to opening weekend for similar movies. {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Mar 19, 15:30

One can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a butcher’s a**… No, wait. It’s gotta be your bull... {nm}   PRodQuanta on Mar 19, 15:25

So it's going all 312.50 on us now? {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Mar 19, 15:26
