UPDATE SATURDAY MORNING: Warner Bros.’ Baz Luhrmann directed an amazing performance for an adult-rated film that ran 2 hours and 39 minutes at the box office elvis goes for an estimate $31.5M Opening to really top the box office.
Outside of superhero tentpoles like Spider-Man: No Way Home At 2 hours and 28 minutes, long film openings have been largely limited during the pandemic, ie House Gucci at 2 hours and 38 minutes, a 3-day dollar cost $14.4 million Westside Story after 2 hours, 36 minutes the price opened to $10.5 million.
Additionally, it’s an embarrassing affair for most majors this weekend, as at least four films appear to be grossing over $20 million apiece.
elvis heavily female at 58% with a massive 30% over the age of 55. Women and older adults have been the tough demos during the pandemic, and it’s clear that older demo films, such as Top Gun: Maverick cracked over half a billion this weekend $521.2M, everyone feels much more comfortable when going to the cinema. It was always said that it was the older demo tent poles, such as the Top gun 2 and no time to die that would pave the way for adults to come back and keep coming back, especially for a movie like elvis
Note that some tracking services had this elvis At $30 million, others have refrained from projecting this stylized version of the King of Rock and Roll because they believed so Top Gun: Maverick would run the box office. This Tom Cruise movie isn’t far behind with a fifth weekend 30 million dollars, -33%. Some believe Paramount may have ultimate bragging rights for #1.
Doubts surfaced whether the legendary singer’s truly older fanbase would emerge (note, if you’re 50, you’re still young for an Elvis Presley fan; he died when you were 5); and the . There was a gap between definite interest to see elvisand its unaided and full consciousness.
Regarding the social media chatter ahead of the opening, RelishMix noted, “Skeptics and fans of The King feel that anyone who is a lover of Elvis usually tends to steer clear of films about him. The reason for this is that he is untouchable, no one can even come close to representing him. But watching clips makes you want to watch it, and hearing the reactions and approval of Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley excites fans.”
RelishMix also noted that there has been “controversy online about Austin Butler’s appearance in the title role – most being sold on his resemblance to Elvis; His hair, eyes, lips, gaze, voice and mood draw viewers into the experiences and concerts they have seen.”
Presales were floating around where Paramount’s is rocket Man were yesterday. This Elton John film shot on day one with previews of $9.1 million for a $25.7 million opening elvis released a first day, including $3.5 million worth of previews, from $12.7M.
While the critics have plummeted to 79%, freshly confirmed elvis Audience exits are large enough with an A-CinemaScore (higher than Luhrmann’s last major feature film, 2013 Great Gatsby that has a B) and great 89% positive and 72% definite recommendations in PostTrak exits. elvis attracted a crowd that was almost 80% over 25, 61% over 35 and nearly half over 45. Both those over 50 (43%) and over 35 (60%) rated CinemaScore elvis a solid A. Diversity demos were 62% Caucasian, 20% Latino and Hispanic, 7% Black, and 11% Asian/Other. Elvis triumphed in the South, where the film scored five out of ten runs. PLF screens have hit 21% of the box office so far; These screens are split between three other titles. Disney has all the Imax for light year.
The Universal/Blumhouse horror film is also exceeding expectations this weekend the black phone, with a $23.2M take after a $10.2M Friday (including $3 million in previews) in 4th place. Uni also holds 3rd place with Amblin’s third weekend Jurassic World Dominion, what posts $26.1M, -56%. Rotten Tomatoes continues to score black phone stays sane at 83% certified fresh with a B+ CinemaScore (very good for horror movies that tend to get Cs) and great exits of 88% positive and 67% recommended at PostTrak. The picture’s top ten cinemas came from the Coasts and Southwest. A handful of PLF screens have made up 5% of the business so far.
Ticket sales surpass any pre-weekend mixed chatter seen by RelishMix, made up of Blumhouse superfans, die-hard Ethan Hawke supporters, and those who thought “the whole movie is in the trailer.” “There have been mentions about the date changes and comparisons too It, plus shouts of encouragement to writer Joe Hill and busy director Scott Derrickson, who directed Doctor Strange and Creepy Part 1 and 2,” reported RelishMix.
Disney’s second weekend of light year stands in between $17M-$19M, at No. 5. If it clears $20 million, it will be the first time in six years that five films have cleared that benchmark over the weekend BO. The last time was July 22-24, 2016 and that was the timing Star Trek Beyond led with an opening of $59.2 million, Secret Life of Pets second with a third weekend of $29.6 million, Lights out Opening at $21.7M in third place, Ice Age: Collision Course Debuting at $21.3 million and second weekend of ghostbusters with $21 million. All in all, this weekend comes to an estimated $138.2 million, which is a 32% discount compared to the corresponding weekend 25 in 2019 (which happened to be a Father’s Day weekend) and -9% discount compared to the weekend after the equivalent to Father’s Day. But four or five titles, each worth over $20 million — exhibitors and studios will certainly take it.
