Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I really wanted to see Spectre yesterday but I was too sick to go.

I'll have to check it out this Sunday instead...

"Jem and the Holograms" yanked after 2 weeks

Quote:
"Jem and the Holograms," the movie reboot of the popular late-1980s cartoon, opened in wide release October 23 and has done so poorly that Universal appears to be yanking it from theaters after only two weeks. Though a small number of theaters have the movie on their schedules, it has disappeared from most theaters, and Universal isn't reporting any box-office figures for it after last week.

This is an unheard of move for a movie that was in theaters nationwide.

But when you crunch the numbers, it's clear they had to stop the bleeding.

Things didn't start out well for the movie, as early reviews were awful, with the film currently at a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Many critics noted that it wasn't true to the TV show, basically alienating core fans.

Then the harsh numbers were reported.

"Jem" came in 15th place its opening week in theaters, taking in $1.37 million on 2,413 screens. That's $570 per screen.

Things didn't get any better for the movie its following week. In 2,417 screens, "Jem" took in $387,925. That's only $160 per screen. To compare, the new "Steve Jobs" film, even when it was performing poorly in wide release, was making $1,080 per screen.


But taking the movie out of theaters instead of scaling it down was a shock to box-office vets who thought they’d seen everything.

“Theater chains are contractually obligated to hold a film for two weeks after booking it, however, in all my days as an analyst I’ve never seen a studio actually stop reporting after two weeks,” Jeff Bock, senior box office analyst at Exhibitor Relations, told Business Insider on Monday. “This is unprecedented, and shows just how badly this film flopped. Not only is it the lowest-grossing debut for a studio film this year, but it’s the worst all-time (by a considerable margin) for any film released in 2,000-plus theaters.”

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Very smart move on their behalf, now they can get it onto VOD platforms while the advertising for the theatrical release is still fresh. Not as fast as Paranormal and Scout's Guide will be, but plenty fast just the same.

However, Jem was the #4 worst opening for over 2,000 screens, not #1.

Oogieloves, Delgo and Saw 10th Anniversary have it beat by a considerable amount.

MGM pushed Hot Tub Time Machine 2 onto VOD platforms seven weeks after it was released in theaters. It was only in theaters for five weeks; two weeks later was available to purchase and rent from every VOD provider... thus why Paramount is trying with their Paranormal Activity and Scout's Guide gamble. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 lost money for Paramount, yet made $40M for MGM with its digital release. Paramount fucked that one up by giving MGM digital rights.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jem and the Holograms ends up on VOD before the end of the month. In a situation like this, it wouldn't create bad blood between Universal and the theater chains due to the film pulling in a whopping PSA of $15 a day before being yanked.

Glad Peanuts made a lot. It was a damn good film and very true to the comics. Glad my childhood favorites didn't get destroyed (Paddington and Peanuts were and are my jam).

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Since Wednesday was a holiday, Tuesday and Wednesday numbers were way up.

Spectre made $7.3m on Tuesday, $7.9m on Wednesday ($4.3 on Thurs) and stands at $93.5m
Peanuts made $3.05m on Tuesday, $7.77m on Wednesday ($1.5m on Thurs) and stands at $58.3m
The Martian also crossed $200m

Some movie called Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Bollywood) opened at #5 yesterday with $387k

Spectre is looking at $33m - $35m for the weekend, The Peanuts Movie is looking at $28.7m (though I expect it to do better), The Martian is looking at $6.8m, and Love the COopers is looking at $6m - $8m.

The 33 looks to make between $3.5m and $6m

The Hunger Games franchise has now grossed $1.272B domestically, the highest opening and grossing went to Catching Fire which pulled $158m opening weekend and grossed $424.7m total / domestic.

Domestic seems a little more important this time as Lionsgate appears to have sold most offshore rights to recoup production costs.

One of the very times a $102M opening weekend can be considered somewhat disappointing.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Hard to judge because of the holiday, but that's one of the lowest opening weekends for a Pixar movie no?

Edit - reading Box Office Mojo's write up is interesting:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4126&p=.htm

Quote:
Coming in second is Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, a story that will be interesting to see play out in the media. On one hand it scored the fourth highest Thanksgiving weekend—three-day and five-day—opening of all time with an estimated $39.19 million and $55.5 million respectively.

On the other hand, those interested in the Pixar brand will be quick to note The Good Dinosaur's three-day signifies the worst opening for a Pixar film since Toy Story back in 1995. Obviously, the Wednesday opening played a role in that number being a little softer, but even if you compare the $55.5M five-day to previous Pixar three-day openings it ranks no higher than twelfth, five million behind the $60.1 million Cars tallied back in 2006. History aside, the "A" CinemaScore is a good sign for the pic, which doesn't have any new competition until Alvin and the Chipmunks The Road Chip arrives on December 18, but by that time all the talk will be about Star Wars: The Force Awakens anyway.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

So glad to see Krampus take the top spot, even if it doesn't hold it for the weekend. After the debacle that was Trick r Treat's release (or lack there of) Dougherty deserves this.

The Good Dinosaur didn't look like it held that well at all.

Creed is doing way better than I thought it would.

The tracking for Krampus put it at $10 - $13m originally, so I imagine Universal is quite happy with the turnout it had. The advertising budget is reportedly under $10m as well.

Pixar's first Box Office flop. I imagine they'll stick to June releases only from now on.

They've done well with November releases in the past, I think Good Dinosaur was destined to flop any way you dish it.

Not since 2004 though. And back then, they mostly did November releases, so it was the norm. They did the summer thing and stuck with that for a decade, so people generally associate Pixar movies with the summer. I know I do.

The lack of advertising didn't help. Perhaps Disney just didn't have any confidence in this film.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

There's just a number of factors working against them on this one, and November is usually a strong release date for animated (Frozen, for instance, was released on November 22nd and grossed $400m domestic / $1.28b ww).

Lacked advertising, lacked a hook, lacked the overwhelmingly positive reviews that usually come with Pixar (this is the lowest aggregate Pixar movie not called Cars, though admittingly, not by much). And the character design isn't up to typical Pixar "We can make a toy out of this!" standards.

I think the movie will have legs moving forward though, especially with school being out in a week, if it can stick around that long. Star Wars will dominate obviously, but it's tough to say counter programming won't work.

Looks like "In the Heart of the Sea" has bombed with an 11 Million opening weekend.

In the Heart of the Sea tanked as expected, apparently it's tough to make a good movie out of a mediocre script after all.

Box Office was low all around. Very nice $90k/screen avg for The Big Short though.
