Yeah, a friend of mine has seen it 3 times and it's the most she's gone to a theater for a movie. I need to go with my wife again before it leaves theaters, we've also been listening to the soundtrack non stop.

They were doing sing a long showings all week in theaters too.

It was soooo much better than I expected. I assumed I would like it but walked out feeling like I had a great cinematic experience. And that music!

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I'm missing something from Box Office Guru's top 20 boxoffice chart for this weekend:

4 The Post 12,150,000 19,361,968 -37.2 2,851 5 4,262 45,191,000 Fox
5 The Greatest Showman 11,000,000 12,467,471 -11.8 2,823 5 3,897 113,481,000 Fox
THE POST and THE GREATEST SHOWMAN have both been on the chart for 5 weeks and are playing at a similar number of theaters, yet THE POST's cumulative gross is less than half that of SHOWMAN. I realize that THE POST started as a limited release, but for a film with this much hype, those two stars and that director, isn't this a rather poor showing?

This is only the second weekend of The Post in wide release. And maybe it's just me, but I didn't really get the feeling like there was a lot of hype for The Post as far as mainstream appeal goes. I think it's doing well for what it is.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Ash, Fumanstan, I actually think The Post is putting up great numbers (its weekend gross the first week going wide was a pleasant surprise to the studio behind The Post). This film, Darkest Hour, All The Money In The World, and Lady Bird all had limited releases but of the group All The Money In The World is the one getting left behind in the dust as ATMITW while not a critical disappointment is certainly a financial one.

All The Money In The World can only hope that a renewed push to get people to see the film helps its numbers after (if) it gets nominated for the big prize when the Oscar nominations are announced tomorrow.

ETA: Obligatory holy crap at how well Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle is doing a month into its release comment. I am sure plenty of folks felt it had the potential before its release to become a mid size hit (perhaps 400-600 million worldwide max when it was all said and done) but who knew it would break into the mega blockbuster film tier as it fast approaches an 800 million and counting world wide gross off a budget that is around half that of typical tent poles (90 million vs usual 160-200 million budget).

Yeah, while Jake Kasdan is mostly miss as a comedy director, I have a feeling him and his production company will be getting a lot of requests moving forward, cranking out what they did at $90m apparently impressed a lot of suits.

Chris McKenna has gone from writing American Dad! and Community episodes to writing The LEGO Batman Movie, Spider-man Homecoming and a good chunk of Jumanji last year. That's a pretty impressive year. He has Ant-man and the Wasp and Spider-man:H2 coming up.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Jumanji really is like the Energizer Bunny that keeps going and going...if the estimated numbers hold it is looking at a small 15% drop from last weekends gross. This marks probably the 3rd or 4th time Deadline has used the word wow over the course of the past several weeks when reporting the numbers for Jumanji.

It also looks like Maze Runner Death Cure while not doing gangbusters business may still come in on the high end of its expected weekend gross (at least 23m).

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I went to see The Greatest Showman (for the sixth time--is that weird, BTW?) and the auditorium had a decent size turnout (1/4th to 1/3rd full) for an 11:30am showing in its sixth week in. Is this a mini-phenomenon?


P.S.--I've never gone to a movie in theaters that many times--not even for a Star Trek movie.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Jumanji is now $35 million from Spider Man 2 and $65 million from the original Spider Man. It's going to be crazy if it goes on to be Sony's biggest hit ever.

It also seemed like Star Wars dropped out of the top 10 faster than I thought it would have.

4 weeks at number one, and only 3 consecutively. The first two weeks it was beaten by Star Wars (and Ferdinand the first week). It was also beaten by The Maze Runner last week.

The record for most consecutive weeks at number 1 is Titanic with 15 weeks.

I really had zero desire to see jumanji, but after the word of mouth and box office, I will probably check it out on Blu Ray.

And, as I read on another forum, Beverly Hills Cop and Tootsie both were #1 for 13 consecutive weeks.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

You all misread Oldboy's post. I believe he meant Jumanji hit #1 fell for many weeks and then returned to #1.

I would imagine movies that got a re-release would fall into that category. Not years later, but hit movies that are re-released the same year, i.e. "see it again on the BIG screen one last time!"

Re-reading his post, I imagine that yes, that is what he meant. Still, it was only out of the top spot for one week, and the competition wasn't exactly stellar this week.

Scrolling back and looking at the charts Rich posted, it's been #1 for three straight weeks. Is there a graphic missing where it fell back to #2?

Week 1: #2
Week 2: #2
Week 3: #2
Week 4: #1
Week 5: #1
Week 6: #1

It was #2 last weekend after Maze Runner Death Cure, it'll be #1 again this weekend. We've been slacking on the charts.

So, do you think another $22mil or so over the next two weeks is possible to pass Spidey 2? Fifty Shades, Peter Rabbit, and Black Panther will obviously take some wind out of the sails.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I guess I was one of maybe 2 or 3 who saw Proud Mary.

But, checking the box office, it looks like it's a rare Screen Gems disappointment. These low budget African-American centered movies usually have done pretty well.

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=proudmary.htm

It's barely made it's reported production budget back.

Guess that's what happens when Sony doesn't spend any significant money promoting it.
