    Great opening for Hustlers. Didn’t see that coming when I first saw the trailer.

    Seems like a really good opening for "Hustlers".

    I'm just surprised they got a sequel to the Anne Hathaway/Rebel Wilson movie in theaters so soon!

    I'm going to try to see The Goldfinch this week, since it seems like it is not long for this (theatrical) world. Anything with Roger Deakins as DP is worth seeing on the big screen as far as I'm concerned.

    TLK (2019) passed the $1.6B WW mark this weekend. For any movie, every $100m increment is impressive of course but those beyond $1B even moreso.

    Considering its own performance and properties it has spun off, the 1994 Lion King movie might be the most profitable single movie of all time.

    I know what Steve means.

    The Lion King story across two films.

    Yes, and it's kind of just one film, since this year's is just a remake of the original.

    Star Wars is a franchise. Obviously, the 1977 film started it, but it has made huge gobs of money from many movies since.

    Almost every dollar that has been made off the Lion King in all areas has really come from that one single 1994 story.

    The Lion King II: Simba's Pride and The Lion King 1 1/2 would dispute that claim. ;)

    But in terms of theatrical box office returns, then, yes.

    I thought of those, but IMO even though they were successful videos, they probably represent 1% of the overall TLK revenues. Maybe I'm wrong ...

    You mentioned "properties spun off" which I figured meant the sequels. Maybe you meant stuff like the Broadway version...

    The Broadway version, by itself, is the highest-grossing single entertainment thing of all time. Of course, its tickets are substantially higher than a movie ticket so it's not a 1-to-1 comparison, but it's still true. I'll try to find an article on this a bit later, but I remember that being announced a few years back.

    Yeah, but once they finally bring that long awaited Sy Snootles musical to Broadway, that'll change! :D

    Yes, I meant things like the play, the video sales, music sales, and merchandise that came directly from the original movie. Just my POV. :)

    The stage production of The Lion King, by itself, became the highest-grossing entertainment thing of all time back in 2014 with a reported gross of $6.2 billion at that time -- and it continues to run in various production all around the world, adding to that total daily. I said earlier that I would find a link for this and here it is.

    Of course, live theatre tickets cost a lot more than movie theater tickets so it's not a 1-to-1 comparison. But still, the record is theirs.

    Great opening for Downton Abbey.

    Not so much for Ad Astra.

    Looks like IT Chapter 2 will top out at about
    $215 million domestic.

    Those estimates on Ad Astra and Rambo are close enough to each other that the final order could switch tomorrow when Sunday actuals come in.

    I saw Ad Astra and loved it but it was almost empty. Probably less than 20 people there this afternoon.

    Ad Astra’s trailers were in no way representative of the experience of watching the movie. Usually, that can be good enough to get an opening night (my Thursday showing was all but sold out) but once word of mouth spread, that’s it.

    No surprise on Downton Abbey. Established franchise plus the need to see it before others spoil the experience. That’s pretty much the formula for box office success these days.

    Awful numbers for The Goldfinch. Can't even clear $100 per screen most days (daily per-screen gross in RED, below). Numbers are for this past Friday-Monday. Monday's $36 is what, 4-5 tickets per screen?
