THANK YOU: Refresh the chart and further analysis It’s forever theatrical for Disney/Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which is ahead of yesterday afternoon estimates with 10 million dollarsbut not so much for the studio’s animated film A strange world which he did 4.2 million dollars yesterday. This converts estimates by industry to 3 days and 5 days 43 million dollars and 55 to 60 million dollars for wakanda forever and the disastrous 3 and 5 day 15.8 million dollars and 20 to 23 million dollars for A strange world which reportedly cost $135 million. That’s not the worst for Disney animated films, especially over Thanksgiving, but it’s damn close: Their $140 million original animated film Treasure planet was in freefall in 2003 with a 3-day 12 and $16.5 million. A former Disney executive once told me, “They’re very good at making best-worst-case decisions” and scripting strange world that’s sending it to Disney+ for the holidays. Even if the picture is packed in theaters, this type of big screen release will at least give it a bit of a rush of accompaniment. Everyone remembers how theater struggles to find its footing, especially among these adult titles that can’t find an audience – either that or it’s a case of cannibalization itself.
Speaking of adult titles, while Sony and Black Label Media Devotion the public box office report shows $1.8M as of yesterday in 3,405 theaters and 10.2 million dollars for 5 days and 3 days 6.1 million dollarshowever, industry sources tell us this AM that Netflix is a sneak preview of the release The Glass Onion: The Mystery of the Knives it’s killing all adult competition and it’s only in 638 theaters. We heard that Wednesday was very close 2 million dollarswith predicted 3-day and 5-day days 8.5 million dollars and $10 to $12.3 million, which is awesome for adult counterprogramming right now. We’ll let you know if Netflix reports the numbers. If Rian Johnson directed, Ram Bergman produced a silly sequel that will arrive at the top, that’s a huge $19.2k theater average and proof that adults still want to go to the movies. As we told you earlier, especially since many of these movies are posting single digits, they are too narrow and therefore their ticket sales are lower. Any development execs wondering what’s working on the big screen right now among older adults, go splash your face with cold water and think back to last year’s all-star package of criminal pickpockets. by Ridley Scott, House of Gucci with Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto and Al Pacino. This film, when there were more concerns about Covid, posted $14.4 million in 3 days and $22 million in 5 days. Just a reminder of the type of movies that get adults out.
Knives Out 2 buries such adult fare as (1.1 million dollars Wednesday, 5 million dollars second weekend a 7 million dollars Five days), Bones and all (921 thousand dollars wed 2.4 million dollars 3-day a 3.9 million dollars 5-day) and Universal’s Amblin’s expansion The Fabelmans which he did 400 thousand dollars in 638 theaters per forecast 2.2 million dollars 3-day a 3 million dollars 5 days. On the high end, the Steven Spielberg-directed film will end up with an average of $4.7K in theaters.
And getting this iSpot shows that Netflix spent less to open than the big companies Glass onion with $4.3 million in TV spots to Disney’s $16 million strange world Sony costs $14.8 million Devotion, Searchlight is on for $10.8 million Offer and Uni’s at $8.5 million Fabelman,
This is reported by RelishMix Knives Out 2 had a massive social media hit of 307.7 million, a nearly three-fold increase from its first 2018 opener to $26.7 million and $41.1 million. Among those socially active in the cast are Kate Hudson at 17.7 million, Dave Bautista at 15.4 million, Edward Norton at 4.1m, Janelle Monáe at 7.4m, while Daniel Craig is still out starting grid
RelishMix says of the buzz: “Convo on Glass onion runs positively with mixed curiosity as to how it will match the success of the first version. Fans are speculating from the cast members chattering about “the smoothest transition for 007 ever” – as well as supporting Dave Bautista’s tattoos and adoring Ed Norton, Kate Hudson and Janelle Monáe. Fans are asking about sliding streaming windows and openly debating whether to wait or go — all while wondering how the surprising revelations will play into the story.”

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: Preliminary numbers and take the 3- and 5-day with a grain of salt, as projections are always off at this point in the Thanksgiving stretch. Disney/Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda forever leads today with $9.5m, even with yesterday’s aa 50 million dollars Outlook from Wednesday to Sunday. However, strange world as we thought, it fell below its $30 million projection 23 to 27 million dollars. Including previews, it looks like around today 4.5 million dollars on 5 million dollars for that animated movie. Magic last year it had a $7.6 million opening day. Apparently, A strange world filled the gap at early matinees with Magic, and I hope that momentum continues.
Sony and Black Label Media Devotion can be seen in 3,405 cinemas 1.7 million dollars today with 9 to 10 million dollars in 5 days, third place. Headlights Offer I have an estimate 1 million dollars on Wednesday for 6 to 8 million dollars over 5 days.
At this moment I am hearing unfathomable reports about The Glass Onion: The Mystery of the Knives. Some have it ahead of all the frosh adults counterprogramming in presales, while others don’t.
WEDNESDAY: It’s not like people weren’t going to the movies yesterday as we head into Thanksgiving: Disney/Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda Forever made 9.5 million dollars on Tuesday in 4,258 theaters, pushing the Ryan Coogler-directed sequel past the three-century mark with $303.7 millionmaking it the seventh film to break the mark this year Top Gun: Maverick, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Jurassic World: Dominion, Minions: The Rise of Gru, The Batman and Thor: Love and Thunder.
However, there really wasn’t any excitement last night when I saw the Disney Animation previews A strange world, which, as we told you, doesn’t look so good for the holidays. Outside of the previews that started at 6 p.m., A strange world he only did 800 thousand dollars, possibly the lowest for a Disney Thanksgiving theatrical release in the era of first-run theaters. That’s about half of it Magic did in its Tuesday preview a year ago with $1.5 million, and then there were more pandemic concerns among viewers. $30 million five-day launch A strange world at 4,174 theaters is what we thought, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if it was lower as it’s the third weekend wakanda forever which is now on pace to earn more than $50 million from Wednesday through Sunday. Audience Score on A strange world is currently low on Rotten Tomatoes at 62%, but only from 50 reviews.
Wakanda foreverTuesday, +36% over Monday, marks its third-highest opening day (outside of Friday) behind first Monday and Tuesday, which earned $11.1 million and $12.6 million, respectively.
Headlight Offer yesterday was the second s 1.3 million dollars at 3,228 locations, +26% from Monday for a five-day running total of $11.3M at 3,211. While A24 Midsummer – good genre compilation here Menu- took a different trajectory, starting on Wednesday in July, Mark Mylod directed Anya Taylor Joy film here is 4% of Ari Aster film in the first five days.
Fathom events and Angel Studios The Chosen: Season 3 posted $1.02 million-19% from Monday for running total 11 million dollars.
New series/DC Black Adam was on tuesday the fourth s 690 thousand dollars at 3,372 locations, +17% for the running total $158.3 million. The Dwayne Johnson movie is available to own on digital for $24.99 or to rent for 48 hours via PVOD for $19.99. The film hits DVD, Blu-Ray and 4K on January 3rd.

Sony distributed the war film Black Label Media Devotion made 615 thousand dollars in 2,982 theaters, which began showing at 6 p.m. This number is above the Thursday preview number for Focus’ features BlackKKKlansman which grossed $600,000 before seeing a $3.6 million Friday and a $10.8 million opening, but it was a very different time of year than the late summer before the 2018 pandemic. The Jonathan Majors-Glen Powell film is expected to $7 million-$8 million in five days.
United Artists Releasing wide release previews Bones and all did 345 thousand dollars as it heads to 2,700 theaters today. In five days, in addition to the demos, Luca Guadagnino shot a genre film 146.7 thousand dollars from five theaters in NYC and LA. A single-digit five-day period is expected.
