    ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Arouses $5.6M On Thursday Night

    I hate their headlines.

    My favorite part of this game/thread is watching @Hog's Big Ben get repeatedly fucked.

    First time I can remember not going all-in on a kids animated film.

    So it’s probably going to blow up.

    So Black Panther is split for 4 days, I suck at figuring out how they split % for these days.

    What is the right way to calculate the percentage

    Total the FML Bux and then calculate the percentage each day represents:
    Friday: $501 (32.9%)
    Saturday: $451 (29.8%)
    Sunday: $348 (22.8%)
    Monday: $220 (14.5%)
    Total: $1,520


    Next thing to do is to find a comp. Deadpool is as good as any:

    Friday $47,335,592 (31.1%)
    Saturday $42,508,025 (27.9%)
    Sunday $42,591,022 (27.9%)
    Monday $19,759,214 (13.1%)
    Total $152,193,853

    The only word of extreme caution is that Deadpool's first Sunday was Valentine's Day, one of the biggest moviegoing days of the entire year. Also, it was rated R, meaning it likely got less of a President's Day boost than Black Panther will. The only other comic book movie to open on President's Day weekend was Ghost Rider.

    Friday 29.6%
    Saturday 33.3%
    Sunday 24.2%
    Monday 12.7%

    In this instance I would flip Friday and Saturday, as Ghost Rider came out in 2007 before Thursday previews were a thing. If you do that, Sunday still emerges as the best value. Don't know if it gets the bonus or not. If it doesn't, a 3x Monday play with whatever gets the bonus could be a better play.

    Deadline did the estimated previews thing last night and came up with $25M. So that probably means even more when the dust settles today. Goddamnit.

    FRIDAY AM UPDATE: Disney and Marvel's Black Panther brought in $25.2 million from Thursday night previews, just shy of doubling the $12.7 million brought in by Deadpool. When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it outperformed the $25 million brought in by Captain America: Civil War and is behind only Avengers: Age of Ultron's $27.6 million, making it the second highest preview gross within the franchise.

    I seriously considered some blanks just to have as much as possible of that Panther money in my lineup.

    I went back and looked. Thought I had two sundays but at some point I must have changed to Friday/Sunday. Eh, either way I’m still fine with it.

    I have two Sundays with some filler I'm still not happy with, but there's no catching up to Chip anyway.

    Am I the only one who wishes FML would go back to allowing you to see users' lineups without clicking on them?? It's infuriating.

    Friday vagueness from Deadline

    Black Panther
    is headed toward a historic weekend with $200M-$205M
    Fifty Shades Freed
    is estimated to take $5.5M today, -70% with a 4-day between $15M-$20M
    Early Man is eyeing $1.1M today, $6.1M over four-days
    Samson is looking at $750K for Friday, $2.6M over the four-day holiday

    1x Friday, 1x Jumanji, 6x Train Movie. I never even considered a 1x Friday play that didn't have another Panther screen. Oh well.

    I thought the kids movies were outside the Black Panther audience. Oh, well.

    Jumanji has made an S-ton of money so clearly its appeal is wider. And I probably saw more kids at BP than at any other superhero movie.
