trending up with their opening weekends.

The only weekend in 2021 that beat 2019 was Labor Day because Disney released a major movie instead of the usual Labor Day weekend when nothing big opens.

The monthly US box office is down huge compared to 2019:

September 2021 was over $300m lower than September 2019.  366m vs 687m or 53% of 2019

August 2021 was over $400m lower than August 2019.  417m vs 837m or 50% of 2019

July 2021 was over $700m lower than July 2019.  582m vs 1.288b or 45% of 2019

Venom did $37.2 million on Friday incl. $11.6 million in Thursday previews. Can't see this one NOT hitting $80 million. {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Oct 02, 08:10

Bodes well for Bond {nm} budice Oct 02, 09:12

Is it just me or is moviegoing more erratic than it was pre-COVID... I wonder why :) {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Oct 02, 09:12

I do have to say that I have watched at least one and often more than 3 or 4 movies a week since theaters reopened in March TheWeekendWarrior Oct 02, 09:14

but compare them to 2020 cake boss! Oct 02, 11:42

Exciting Helpful News - BatSh*t Crazy Alabama Governor Wants To Spend Her $400 Million COVID RELIEF On Prisons Instead Of On ... You Know. Captain Obvious Oct 02, 12:01

It was missing the Word 'SOME'. 'Some Moviegoers Are Back'. {nm} Captain Obvious Oct 02, 11:43

LIke I said before, stufio released crap in September. If they put out exclusive content, moviegoers will and are coming back. {nm} Antibody Oct 02, 12:09

No one is comparing 2021 to prior years because studios either pull their releases and put them on day-n-date. {nm} Antibody Oct 02, 12:13

Let them think stuff. It's almost like talking to ant-vaxxers (?) 3ebfan511 Oct 02, 14:20

72M LOL {nm} ad48 Oct 02, 14:30

Appears the box office deniers are the anti-vaxxers. {nm} Antibody Oct 02, 15:28

It is funny.....(as long as it 72-78, within Shang-Chi.) Let's see tomorrow's numbers.....78 is way closer to 80 than 90.... {nm} 3ebfan511 Oct 02, 16:58

I said 80 to 90 and stand by that. Your guess is 72 correct? {nm} ad48 Oct 02, 19:55

Do you know the best way to talk to an anti-vaxxer? TheWeekendWarrior Oct 02, 15:03

Well done. {nm} 3ebfan511 Oct 02, 16:01

Maybe 30M today so chance at 90 now. {nm} ad48 Oct 02, 20:07
