Lorax also had a 54% RT vs. 95% for Lego. As great as Lego did, its box office was probably also dampened at least a bit by...

Posted by: KalElFan (a.k.a del_TOM_KalElFan) on Feb 09, 13:31 in response to thatpj's post LORAX didn't have holiday on 2nd weekend.

the Olympics, and it being early February.  So with those factors and WOM and the holiday as you mentioned, I'm not sure about 3.5, but I think it's possible.  I'll be very surprised if it isn't >> 2.7.

What case is that? Who cares if someone else posts earlier? Well, aside from you, that is. {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 09, 10:59

I'm thinking at least x3.5 delist...anyone else? {nm}   PVL Admin on Feb 09, 12:39

But it had March break. {nm}   second gary on Feb 09, 13:53

That didn't effect any of it's weekend drops.... {nm}   thatpj on Feb 09, 19:31

But the March break ought to have buoyed its delist multiplier. {nm}   second gary on Feb 10, 06:16

I know BOM is comparing it to Lorax, but I sure wouldn't. Lorax was an environmentalist/save our planet movie with political messaging.    PVL Admin on Feb 09, 13:26

i'd be interested in seeing the age breakdown, b/c if it performed like it tracked, it will have a good size audience 25+ so pixar comps   Moviesnob on Feb 09, 13:49

Huh? I thought that was a Doc Seuss book. Don't overthink this ****, mavens. {nm}   lhayes37 on Feb 09, 14:31

Have you seen the movie? I was very taken aback by the message in the movie and disliked it as a result. 1 Blu-ray for sale :) {nm}   PVL Admin on Feb 09, 16:53

Out of interest, how did it differ from the book? Because IIRC the environmental message in the book was pretty obvious. {nm}   RogerMore on Feb 09, 18:43
