Cowboys and Aliens midnights did pretty terrible compared to Summer blockbusters, only 10% of Captain America at usual less than 800K natl {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:00

Even less than TRUE GRIT at usual megaplex {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:01

And you tell us this right at halt. {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Jul 29, 10:05

Couldn't check earlier (sorry!) {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:07

Okay, I forgive you :) {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Jul 29, 10:20

Crazy Stupid Love at Usual Megaplex did 70% of the attendance at midnight {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:05

Still believe in 20+ OW. {nm} vccn Jul 29, 10:08

are you saing CSLOV did better than Cowboys? just clarifying... {nm} Oleg Max Jul 29, 10:08

Did 70% of the attend which speaks to how extremely low Cowboys and Aliens was {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:10

CSL did pretty respectable for a midnight romantic comedy (not Valentines Day or Bridesmaids well) {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:11

got it. thanks... {nm} Oleg Max Jul 29, 10:12

So over 800k? {nm} vccn Jul 29, 10:12

Nationally CSL was run on much less theatres, probably about 200K all theatres all chains? {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:17

Lesson is: never underestimate the box office draw of Steve Carrell.. ? {nm} Facto Jul 29, 10:49

Didn't CAPAM do $3MM? So, 10% of that would be $300K not $800K? {nm} GMov Jul 29, 10:17

10% is usual megaplex only {nm} notfabio Jul 29, 10:36

ahhh, makes sense {nm} GMov Jul 29, 10:39

Good timing lol {nm} Dorfman Jul 29, 10:18

Not worried... Much of the older crowd for the film don't rush into midnight showings. They come later. {nm} VictorY Jul 29, 10:28

Not sure the "older crowd" rushes out to see a movie about aliens and cowboys at any time. It's not exactly True Grit or Unforgiven. {nm} GMov Jul 29, 10:40

Much "doesn't." But it is an inelegant construction. Avoid it in your writing. For example, "much of the older crowd didn't rush out." {nm} grammar b. s. i. #312.50 Jul 29, 12:12

Sigh. "This goes here, that goes there." grammar b. s. i. #312.50 Jul 29, 12:14

Thanks, much appreciated! :-) grizzly Jul 29, 10:31
