Hm, the news keeps talking about The Interview selling out every theater it's showing in, but its per/screen average doesn't seem to be that high.

 

The Interview isn't playing at the big chains, independent theaters generally have fewer screens (maybe just 1-2 as opposed to 18 or 24) while at the multiplex, theaters 13-15 might be playing nothing but the latest Hobbit movie 4-5 times a day. The movie was yanked around the schedule and maybe the theaters made plans to show other films, further limiting the number of showtimes per day it might have.

I keep reading about the movie being shown ten times a day at certain theaters, but it's still a matter of eyes on the screen per showing, and those numbers above aren't that high compared to other eyes per showing.

I thought it might get a higher per screen average as well. But it's available on streaming media, people are apparently pirating the hell out of it and the word of mouth has been pretty brutal.

The Interview made over 5 times as much online as it did in theaters

 

 

The Interview was budgeted at $44 million. Whether or not it can make back its production budget will depend on how well it holds up in online sales (something that's still relatively untested), but it has a much better shot at that number than you would think from its relatively paltry theatrical ticket sales. It would have to perform absurdly well to make back marketing costs (which are unknown to us) as well, but for it to even break even with its production budget would be an accomplishment and set a solid precedent for future online releases.

When I first saw the promos for The Interview a few weeks ago, I thought it was just a stupid idea to make a movie mocking a deranged leader who had nuclear weapons.  Not that I care about the little North Korean's hurt feelings, but I just thought it was...dumb to make a movie about him.  This was before all the hoopla, but I wasn't surprised at all when the shit hit the fan.  I honestly never understood why Sony gave the go ahead for such a dumb movie in the first place.  Plus, I can't stand Seth Rogen or James Franco.

 

So they'll make some money and maybe they'll cover expenses or perhaps do even better.  I'll just be glad when all the hoopla is over and the dumb movie goes away.  Needless to say, I won't be watching.

From a NYT article on the media business in general.

 

 

Never mind hacking, who stole all those moviegoers? Ticket sales at the box office fell 4 percent this year versus last year, and in the first nine months, profits at Regal Entertainment, the No. 1 theater chain, were down 50 percent compared with the previous year. More worrisome still, the Nielsen Company said last week that movie attendance for Americans ages 12 to 24 dropped 15 percent in the first nine months of 2014, compared with the same period a year earlier.

Because no one feels like dropping 12 dollars for a regular movie ticket, and then about another 18 dollars for pop corn and a soda? Seriously, wouldn't a movie date that included snacks come out to like 50 dollars or something? You can take someone to Olive Garden for less than it would cost to take them to a movie and get them snacks.

IDK, the cost of moviegoing hasn't dramatically increased in the past 2-3 years, but this weekend increased from the same weekend last year at the box office (6 percent), and maybe the plummeting gas prices helped. As far as going out for entertainment, I still think a movie is cheaper than concerts, major sporting events or clubs, especially a matinee (I never go the movies at night and don't live in a Top 10/20 market, so maybe this is why it doesn't seem so expensive to me?)

 

I think VOD/streaming and the slate of films not compelling people to attend are bigger issues. Dealing with a generation who've always had tablets and Youtube might be a growing challenge for movie theaters in a few years. It used to be a huge deal for a teen to be able to go to the mall with friends, but now you have helicopter parents, they can all text each other constantly, and they can probably pirate whatever movie they want fairly easily.

 

With further numbers, Into the Woods came in second for the weekend, ahead of Unbroken ($31M vs. $30.6M). Both are still outperforming expectations so far.

The Grand Budapest Hotel  $59,100,318
The Imitation Game  $42,024,194
Birdman  $26,601,455
The Theory of Everything  $26,202,405

Clint Eastwood's American Sniper is smashing records at the North American box office, where it is doing huge business Friday for a projected four-day debut in the $55 million-$60 million range over the long Martin Luther King weekend, if not higher.

American Sniper will be over $100M for the four-day weekend. It will have to collapse not to make $300M and could challenge for the number one movie of 2014! I knew the ads were good, but this is one of the all-time box office shockers. An R-rated Iraq War drama having a $90M weekend in January might even get studios to consider releasing blockbuster action movies in the month (some are speculating Mission: Impossible 5 might move to this weekend in 2016 to get some breathing room from Star Wars).

 

Blackhat, OTOH...I guess Chris Hemsworth can take comfort in it having a better first weekend than Paranoia and be glad that at least one more Huntsman and several more Marvel movies are in the works.

Really surprised about Blackhat. I assume the biggest factor is that American Sniper took its (target) audience.

The early talk was that Blackhat might getting a qualifying Oscar run...that seems to have quietly dried up. I think without American Sniper, maybe it could've doubled or tripled its opening weekend, which still wouldn't be very good, given the budget ($70 million). If the studio cared at all about making money, they should've moved it the minute it was revealed Sniper would go wide the same weekend. I think they decided it would tank no matter what, so why bother? As of yet, Chris Hemsworth simply hasn't proven himself a draw outside Thor.

Maybe domestically...I don't know if I see something this unsubtly patriotic (and about a very divisive war at that) doing that well overseas. But the domestic alone should make this very profitable indeed.

Right, American Sniper has no chance of overtaking Transformers but it might not fare horribly outside of the US. It's already off to a good start compared to other Eastwood movies overseas:

 

American Sniper added seven markets this frame for a total of eight, with an estimated $9.3M from roughly 1.2M admissions on 1,467 screens and a $25.36M cume.
This week, it added career-best openings for Eastwood in the UK, Taiwan, New Zealand and Peru — and it still has debuts to come in several major markets.

I wonder if American Sniper is attacting some people who aren't frequent moviegoers, similar to God's Not Dead last year.  There's a significant segment of the US that lean more to the right socially and politically that feel that Hollywood doesn't make movies that mesh with their values anymore.  That neglected audience may be part of the reason for American Sniper's high B.O. numbers.

I wonder if American Sniper is attacting some people who aren't frequent moviegoers, similar to God's Not Dead last year.  There's a significant segment of the US that lean more to the right socially and politically that feel that Hollywood doesn't make movies that mesh with their values anymore.  That neglected audience may be part of the reason for American Sniper's high B.O. numbers.

 

Possibly, though it did extremely well in limited release, with three of the four theaters being in New York City and LA, and just one in Dallas (not that everyone on "the coasts" is super duper liberal). More info about the top markets this weekend:

 

Sniper's top-grossing theaters were in San Antonio (Kyle was from Texas), Oklahoma City, Houston, New York, Albuquerque, Nashville, Knoxville, Kansas City and Irvine, Calif. Regionally, Calif. ranked No. 1, followed by Texas, Ga. and Fla.

 

"It shows the depth of the movie. It is playing in both red states and blue states," said Warners domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman. "It’s the biggest opening of all time for a war film, but people don’t view it as a war film. It is about a true hero, and family and patriotism. It doesn’t matter that the movie is R-rated, which is sometimes a problem in smaller towns. This is the first ‘real’ superhero movie."

 

Execs at rival studios agree, stating (off the record) that "It felt like we opened against a Marvel movie" and complaining it shaved millions off the initial projections for their films.

Mortdecai flopped, hard. I bet Johnny Depp can't wait until they start filming the next Pirates of the Caribbean.

Been a pretty interesting January at the box office; Taken 3's a hit, American Sniper is a massive hit, a low budget Jennifer Lopez thriller opened more than three times higher than the latest Johnny Depp movie and Blackhat tanked. Paddington and The Wedding Ringer are both performing respectably, too.

So, will 50 Shades of Grey knock American Sniper out of the top spot when it opens on Valentine's weekend?

God, I hope not!  Not that I'm a fan of American Sniper; in fact, I'd love for something to knock it out of the top spot.  But not that crappy ass Twilight fan fic.

Probably Kingsman, depending on how strong Jupiter Ascending is in its second weekend.

Yes, most definitely. Pre-sales are through the roof.

Kingsman and Fifty Shades of Grey come out on the same weekend. It's really just a matter of how big 50S0G's opening weekend will be and how much its second weekend will collapse. I think the reports predicting a $60 million OW are too low; Valentine's Day did have half of Hollywood in it, but wasn't half as anticipated and managed $56M. The books have sold 100 million copies, putting the series in Harry Potter/Twilight/James Bond territory.
