No one is claiming Venom is the reason Maverick has done well. If you read the article, Sony is saying that they're responsible for getting theaters back up and running with their commitment to theatrical releases, starting with Venom. It's impossible to know how Maverick would have done had Sony held back some of their films, but I think most would agree that at the very least Spider-Man's success was the first real sign that the theatrical business was back to something resembling pre-pandemic times. It's the kind of thing that gives the studios confidence to do big theatrical releases. It also gets the general public used to the idea that they need to go out to a theater in order to see the guy new thing everyone's talking about.

I'd been going to my local theatre throughout 2020 and 2021, very often the only person in the theatre for whatever movie happened to be playing. I happened to go see House Of Gucci the same day Spider-Man opened and for the first time in two years the place was crawling with people, a huge line all the way out the door for Spider-Man. In fact, half-way through HOG the movie mysteriously stopped, and they gave me and the other three people in the theatre passes to come back another time. Given the staff's evasive responses to my question if there would still be the 9 o'clock showing of HOG, I'm pretty sure they kicked us out so they could get an extra screen for Spider-Man to accommodate the huge crowds waiting in line. I think there's no question Spider-Man got the theatre back on-track. I tried going tonight to see Where The Crawdads Sing, and not only could I not get into that, but my two back-up choices of Elvis and Top Gun were also sold-out except for a couple shitty seats at the far end of the front row. And no, they aren't doing distanced seating.

No, that was the last night it was playing, which is why I was willing to come back for the second show.

AMC Theatres is apparently honoring the poster promotion. I don't have time to see it on Friday, but maybe Saturday. It would be my 4th time seeing it if I go.

For the few KC people here the Extreme Screen at Union Station is bringing back Top Gun Maverick for two weeks starting August 12th. I have some time off planned for next week so I’m thinking about going as I didn’t get to see it in a large format theater.

It's on day 73 and still made over $7M this past weekend. Most blockbusters, which are heavily front loaded, run out of gas by this time. I don't think this is hitting streaming or physical media until late September at the earliest.

My Blu-ray buying habits have dried up to only about one or two a year. This will be one of those purchases.

I would say it's a good chance. Would increase the subs.

I might see it in theaters again this week. The first time was a great presentation and who can beat $5.

Turns out I found a 5pm Dolby screening at AMC after work, so I will be driving there after work to see it 1 more and get the poster. I forgot that I reserved a ticket to see Fall on Saturday, so I got my days mixed up.

Got the free poster today. But, the AMC employee tried to scan my phone, it said my showing was cancelled. Turns out the Dolby projector malfunctioned and they thought it was going to be down all day. But, they got it up and running early around 4pm. My showing was 5pm. They moved up the showing to 415pm. So the movie was already in progress when I arrived. The employee called the manager to help me out.

The manager came to me, apologized, gave me the Top Gun poster, gave me another ticket to another showing. So I saw Bodies, Bodies, Bodies. And also gave me 2 vouchers for Popcorn and Soda. So when all was said and done, I came out ahead.

Looks like that old August 23 date will surprisingly stick for the digital release.

So just a little over a week to go.
