‘Villains’ Lead Quiet Box Office Weekend Before ‘Dr. Strange 2’ Dominates The World 2022-04-30 09:39:00


After all the rumors about the theatrical return at CinemaCon last week, major studios have skipped programming for any extensive new releases this weekend. All of this has resulted in a market seeing an estimated $64 million in total ticket sales, down 33% from last weekend. Ugh. As for when the majors will be sitting on the sidelines again this year, there’s June 3, and possibly August 12 (Searchlight maintains an extensive untitled entry date).


If you’re feeling like a desert in a multiplex complex, prepare for monsoon Thursday night, with Disney/Marvel’s Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madnessAnd Which is expected to rain anywhere from $150 million – $200 million. Tracking sees it as at least $150 million; It wouldn’t be shocking if the pic reached $200 million, but Disney doesn’t want to go over their sleds. Previously, Dr. Gharib 2 Witnessing this year’s best pre-sale, higher than Batman With 42 million dollars. All this is the beginning of a very rich summer, and after the profuse response to Top Gun: Maverick Outside of CinemaCon, Tom Cruise must be in store for the biggest global and domestic opening of his career, surpassing war of the worlds ($64.8 million, its highest domestic level) and mummy ($172.3 million, 3 times largest global appearance for an Oscar nominee).

As such, this weekend will see Universal/DreamWorks Animation عرض the wicked in first place again in Weekend 2, with $14.4 million-40%, for ten days in total by tomorrow $42.7 million. With nothing else left in the tent, it wouldn’t be surprising after today’s cultivators if that level rose. And all other family fare keep their first places, like Paramount Restaurant Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Looking forward to a fourth weekend of $9.7 million In second place, -38%, with a total run $159.3 million, Warner Brothers. Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets appreciated $7.5 million Weekend 3 on 3rd, down -46%, with an ongoing investment of $78.8 million by EOD Day on Sunday.

Continuing to show evidence that there is an appetite for original fare at the box office is A24’s incredible franchise Everything is everywhere all at once, who sees $5.3 million On Weekend 6, it’s down 2%, for a running total $35.2 million. This AGBO production is easily heading for $40 million+.

While I’m sure the gallery is grateful for the new product, the annoying thing here is that in an enhanced market, the feature does a similar job to what other Neeson Open Road photos were doing when NYC and LA were closed during Covid, i.e. archer ($3.1 million) and honest thief ($4.1 million).

memoryThe five largest markets yesterday, the day it took $1.1 millionwere Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Chicago, where the highest-grossing cinema of the day was the IPIC Theater in Fulton Market in Manhattan.

Well, it’s all about the home and men’s accessories for these Neeson cookie cutter business addresses. Critics had enough Neeson-with-a-gun images at 29% rotten, and those who decided to show up and sit in the dark and eat popcorn for nearly two hours gave it 66% and 49% on the Comscore/PostTrak screen engine. Jeez.

Participation was 51% of men, 84% over 25, and 46% over 45. The various demonstrations were 49% Caucasian, 20% Hispanic and Hispanic, 20% Black, and 11% Asian/other.

The unbearable weight of talent


Nick Cage from Lionsgate Unbearable weight of huge talent search in $3.6 million On Weekend 2, -49%, Day 10 of 13.1 million dollars For what looks like a final GDP of $20 million with all said and done.

A few thoughts come out of this at CinemaCon: Despite the movie’s disturbing opening after its vibrant world premiere at SXSW, competitor distributors who have handled a similar product believe this movie is overkill for home entertainment, Cage’s bread and butter.

Although Cage is arguably on the rise, professionally speaking, he has been critically acclaimed pig, It’s been a mess at the box office for quite some time; His last direct support was in 2007 National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($220 million domestic, $459 million US). Hence, the limited access to this superbly critically acclaimed comedy (87% newly certified), intriguing audiences have finally turned to. If Neeson did a satirical comedy, we would expect similar results.

Still, excellent for Lionsgate for making this movie theatrically, and not dumping it into PVOD or streaming. why is that? Odds are history unbearable weightside, that it will turn into a cult classic in the same This is Spinal tap (4.7 million local dollars by 1984 standards) and The Big Lebowski ($18.2 million in 1998 dollars). If this image were a live version, it wouldn’t have that resonance.
