Theater Averages: Never Really Here Arrives on the Top

April 11th, 2018

You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here was the clear winner on the theater average chart earning over $130,000 in just three theaters for an average of $44,276. This isn’t the best theater average for a film released in 2018, but it is in the top five. The overall number one film, A Quiet Place, was next with an average of $14,311. The final film in the $10,000 club is Lean on Pete, which earned an average of $11,744 in four theaters. More...

Weekend Estimates: A Quiet Place Opens in the Black with $50 million

April 8th, 2018

A Quiet Place

If it weren’t for Black Panther, A Quiet Place would be the biggest surprise hit of the year so far. The film earned $50 million during its opening weekend, on a budget of just $17 million. Its initial ad buy was probably less than $25 million, meaning this film earned more in its opening weekend that its combined budget. However, I assume Paramount Pictures put in at least another $10 million ad buy on Saturday after Friday’s estimates showed up. As for the film’s future, its reviews are close to Award-worthy and it earned a B plus from CinemaScore, which is impressive for a horror film. Additionally, the film saw its score rise on Saturday when compared to Friday, which is not common for a new release. Previews plus the opening day rush usually result in small declines for films aimed at this target audience. It is still a horror film and next week there is big competition and direct competition, so its legs likely won’t be great, but its nearly guaranteed a profit by this time next week. More...

April 6th, 2018

You Were Never Really Here

There are only seven limited releases on this week’s list, but all of them are earning reviews that are at least good. Several of them are earning reviews that are amazing. This includes You Were Never Really Here, which is also the biggest film with the loudest buzz. Perhaps this will give it an edge over the competition. More...
