Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Wow, more than I thought it would do, but looking for tickets has been a nightmare, so I shouldn't be shocked.

I'm still not sure how good or bad this is to see lol. On one hand, people are going to the theaters, and that's good. On the other, they're only seeing the big movies. Everything else is doing terribly. I didn't expect Nightmare Alley, or Last Night in Soho to do gangbusters, but Nightmare coming in 5th?! It's fair to be both excited and disappointed at the same time, right? lol

Weekend #s:



Ouch for Nightmare Alley and West Side Story, but there was simply no audience left after that Spider-man opening.

I wonder how the first weekend gross would have been if we never had or were in a pandemic. Would it have done more because there was no pandemic or would it have done less because there would be a lot more competition out there?

More is my guess, the hype is strong with this one.

Id say around the same. I think everyone who wanted to see it in theaters will make it a point to do so. It's the mid budget movies that are gonna have a hard time getting people back

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” has generated even more money in its box office debut than initially reported.

Sony’s epic finale in the Tom Holland-led comic book trilogy collected a mind-blowing $260 million in North American theaters over the weekend, above Sunday’s estimates of $253 million. It means “No Way Home” has now surpassed “Avengers: Infinity War” ($257 million) to land the second-biggest debut in Hollywood history behind only “Avengers: Endgame” ($357 million). Not bad for pandemic times.

Internationally, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” captured $340.8 million from 60 overseas markets, pushing its global tally to $600.8 million. It stands as the third-biggest worldwide launch ever after “Avengers: Endgame” ($1.2 billion) and “Avengers: Infinity War” ($640 million).

It has a good chance, it should be above $600m by next weekend granted there are no theater shutdowns.

Scream is looking like $36m for the 4 day.

Spider-man is expected to cross $705m by the end of the 4 day. Surpassing Black Panther.

We can all blame Spider-Man: No Way Home for the rapid spread of Omicron.

It looks like it has enough steam left in it to surpass the $760 million mark and pull ahead of Avatar to become the third highest grossing movie of all time. It may be a longshot, but it could get close to the $800 million domestic mark as well.

It looks like Spider-Man will easily pass Avatar's box office gross, possibly as early as next weekend. Now the question is, will it having enough staying power to crawl past the $800 million mark.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Early estimates were predicting about $30M, which would have been disappointing. So $44M to start is pretty decent.

and it looks like it's made about $139M week 1 worldwide

I enjoyed it like I said in the reviews thread, but I know the reaction to this has been mixed.

While I very much enjoyed the film, I was surprised at how empty my IMAX late afternoon show was. Definitely coming in under 125m I think.

I saw it today at a 3pm Dolby show and it was near full. I guess it just depends on the region and who has time to see a 3 hour movie on a Thursday.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Robert Pattinson’s pitch-black superhero adventure “The Batman” collected a mighty $128.5 million in its box office debut, marking the best opening weekend of 2022 by a landslide. But what is more impressive: it’s only the second pandemic-era movie to cross the $100 million mark in a single weekend, a feat first achieved by “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which launched last December to a historic $260 million.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Spider-Man is at $792 domestic. It looks like it made $4 million this past weekend. I wonder if they'll keep it in theaters long enough for it to break the $800 million mark for domestic sales.
