Default Re: Thor's box office competition - Part 2

Just to interject some anecdotal evidence:

Starting this Friday, Thor had a pretty drastic drop in number of screens in the greater Boston area. There were pretty much 5 theater choices for 3D showings, and about 3 choices for 2D, some of those only 1 showing per day. (Things are not looking good for my hope that it'll still be on a screen somewhere when Captain America comes out.)

However, I went to one of those 9pm-only 2D showings last night (viewing #4 for me ), and was interested to find that we had between 50-60 people in the theater for it. I wasn't expecting that many.

It was also a really good cross-section of demographics (sub-title: People-Watching is Fun). There was a smattering of families with under-12 kids there, but also several teens or early-20s singles; a bunch of 20s/30s/40s couples and singles; a woman in her 20s who had brought her mother (or friend in her 50s, whichever); and (notable to me because they sat right behind me), a sort of "double date" group in their 50s or 60s who didn't physically look like geeks but who were (going by their comments) very comics knowledgeable and having a grand time (they still didn't like the FX quality in the Green Lantern trailer; they are totally up for Cowboys & Aliens and Cap; I should say that all of their audible commentary was confined to pre- and post-movie, but there was a lot of audible reaction to the film). More than half the people in the audience (including the older group) stayed for the post-credits scene.

Man, I would have LOVED to know how many of the people in there were repeat viewers.

These films are usually in theaters for about 100 days/3 months. So it'll likely still be playing somewhere when Cap is released. Good luck finding one though.

Probably'll be down to only 100 screens nationwide by that time.

Hopefully Thor will reach 180 M by next Monday, now it's estimated at 173/174 Million.

hopefully it'll make more than 30 M in Japan, getting to 460 Million ww seems reachable...

Pretty much all the theaters have at least 1 screen of 2D with about 2 to 4 viewings daily here in South Florida.

I'm with a number of you guys. I'm hoping to catch a double feature when Captain America comes out. As of now Thor is still playing on 1-2 screens in the theaters that have more than 10 screens, which is about 5-6 theaters. The largest one has 27 screens and it's still on 2 screens there. I'm hoping in 4 weeks when Cap hits it'll still be one of their small 150 seater screens so I can catch both in the same complex.

Yeah we have two multiplexes here in town owned by Malco, and each has 12 screens I hope they do the same thing or at least move Thor too the older theater where it didn't open at.

i have no idea how it will perform in Japan, but i know pirates made 62 Million and Black swan made about 21 M, so if Thor is anywhere in between there, then it should do about 30-35 M, but then again this is just my guess lols. if it makes more than 30, then it should cross the 450 M mark easily.

It's gonna cross that even without Japan's number's, so I think Japan's number are gone push Thor to about 480M-490M.

For a few reasons.
1) They are going to destroy each other, out in the same week
2) Not Summer movies, hence why I also didn't include Breaking Dawn

Even with those included, there is still a good chance. Something like GL has a credible breakout opportunity but we are all nervous about that.

Thor needs Japan to hit $450M, it's practically finished in all the other OS countries and has about $10M in the tank left in the US. In fact it needs to do better than the Iron Man movies in Japan to hit $450M

Yeah let's hope Thor does well in Japan. I just hope things aren't too bad there still for them to see Thor.
