DMETH is looking at $38K+ PTA in 4 theaters, and if we look at the history of all films who have done this in at least 4 theaters on OW

Posted by: xiayun on Nov 26, 21:18 in response to TheWeekendWarrior's post Yes... a movie that has more hype and is marketed better...

the lowest total gross after 12 weeks has been The Aristocrats' $6.2m, followed by Cyrus' $7.4m, so it would have needed some pretty bad legs for the film to not reach the $5m price it was at earlier in the day when the comment was first made.

The reference chart: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/weekends/theateravg.htm?page=THTRAVOPN&p=.htm

or sorted by total gross, from the lowest to highest: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/weekends/theateravg.htm?page=THTRAVOPN&sort=gross&order=ASC&p=.htm

Of course, one could use The Skin I Live In and Martha Marcy May Marlene, which didn't get to $38K on their OWs but were pretty close and without holiday help, as counter-examples since they're struggling to make over $3m, but I think the upside potential, especially at where it was priced earlier, outweights the downside one.

MCN: [MYWWM] fri avg $2,500 / $610k fri total, [ARTST] $18,850 / $75.4k, [DMETH] $15,150 / $60.6k    Oleg Max on Nov 26, 10:36

That's pretty strong for DMETH {nm}   xiayun on Nov 26, 12:24

Tangentially related: I just looked at the box office on Cronenberg's last two and WOW... had no recollection of HoV doing $30m & EP $17m   dsbman on Nov 26, 13:18

The influence of casting VMORT, I think, at that time. {nm}   second gary on Nov 26, 13:22

I was surprised at how good VMORT was in DMETH. He upends every cliche about Freud while delivering a fully complex character. {nm}   helmetz on Nov 26, 13:31

Not for one of the busiest moviegoing days of the year... it averaged less than ARTST with a bigger name cast and director. {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Nov 26, 18:49

The Artist has had a lot more hype. I didn't even know that Dangerous Method had opened and I'm a Cronenberg fanboy. {nm}   tawdryhepburn on Nov 26, 18:59

as what tawdryhepburn said, and DMETH was priced as half of what The Artist had {nm}   xiayun on Nov 26, 20:12

Yes... a movie that has more hype and is marketed better will do better business. Not sure I understand your argument   TheWeekendWarrior on Nov 26, 20:33

I think competition wil have a huge impact against DMETH in the coming weeks: Carnage, Tinker Tailor, Shame, Kevin, etc {nm}   numbersix_99 on Nov 27, 06:37
