Grindhouse Release Pattern


#1

Okay, so it’s first week was wide with 2624 screens, theaters, or prints (I’m not exactly sure.) Surprisingly, for it’s next week, it added another 5 playdates to end up at 2629 prints, screens or theaters. And tomorrow for it’s 3rd week, it’s declining by 1154, so it’ll be 1475. This, according to box office mojo.



Hopefully the decline will increase the per screen average but considering how it did it’s second week, with a 63% drop, it probably won’t.



Week 3: Grindhouse (Weinstein / Dimension) / 1,475 (-1154) / 3



Also, and I don’t have any proof of this, but doesn’t it seem that despite how good the movie is, how well it’s reviewed and other similar factors, that some people are seeing the film based on how well it peforms? That some people are actually thinking, “oh, it’s not doing too good. I think I’ll pass.” If that’s the case, that might be an important reason why studios are so anxious to release their successful figures.



Anyone have any predictions when this this version of Grindhouse will be completely out of theaters? I’m glad it’s survived at least 3 weeks out.

Well, according the Box Office Mojo, Grindhouse is being taken out of 85 theaters this week. It was in 180 venues as of yesterday and is being yanked out of 85 of them, leaving it in only 95 theaters going into it’s 6th week.

Since it’s in fewer theaters, anyone think it’s per screen average will go up?

Looks like this Cannes business is getting the flick some more press. It’s expanding by 122 theaters from 53 to 175, for it’s 8th week. From boxofficemojo…

Nope, it’s still Grindhouse.



Death Proof hasn’t come out yet but I’m guessing the free press it’s been garnering over at Cannes justified the 122 theater increase.


#19

ohh, yes, got it. Interesting
