Kimetsu no Yaiba/Demon Slayer. It's a really popular anime, probably bolstered by the fact that it's not streaming simultaneously.

If I had full efficacy with my vaccine already I probably would've taken my daughter.

It's also the highest grossing theatrical release of all time in Japan, passing Spirited Away.

I took my daughters. They liked it. I thought it was ok, but I didn't watch the anime. There really is no effort to draw in non-fans of the anime. It picks up right were the show left off and not much effort is made to explain who the characters are or what the situation is. Animation was very good though. Anime is only one season at this point and is on Netflix

A quiet place part 2 is on track to make $57M this holiday weekend.

Cruella is on track to make between $27 to 30M

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Updated Estimates for AQP2 have increased to $58m+ for the 4-day, $80.5m global (12 markets). Early estimates were $17m for Cruella and $30m for AQP2.

that's $48.8m for the 3 day for AQP2, pre-pandemic estimates were at $60m for the 3 day when it was coming out in March 2020 and capacity was 100%.

A pretty generous take, an 11m 2nd wknd is doing well? And a 60% drop for Quiet Place 2, with all of the good reviews/audience scores. This underscores what I mentioned in the other box office thread last wk, there is no going back to box office before the pandemic.

54% drop for AQP2, the Friday drop is due to it including Thursday evening grosses last week. That's a pretty standard drop but definitely worse than #1s 34% drop (which is normally what happens with sequels)

The theater is in a reboot mode right now, it's too soon to call anything about its long term recovery, they're still waiting for a current film to cross $100m domestic again (which AQP2 will do next weekend). Cruella and Conjuring are interesting since they're both streaming.

The holiday wknd threw me off as well, so yeah a pretty standard drop...and it's doing great for a mid tier film. We've got the big tests coming up with F9 and Black Widow...

Eh nevermind you were right, the current estimates are updated to a 59% drop. Though Conjuring did slightly better than estimated.
