Show Those......Yawn....Sleepy Screens!!!!
Apologies for missing last week......clearly everyone noticed 😁. I was in a rush and did not have time.....
But....enough about last week!!!!
Based on my experience in the UK on wednesday....when only 4 people were in the cinema for a half price showing of Doctor Sleep.....I was cautious about it this week...
....nothing like a bit of anecdotal information to inform your line-up.....
But....for no previews.....it still made it's way into my line-up as anchor. Jojo rabbit meanwhile was leading the BP charge.
Christmas was also finding its way in as a second anchor....
Then....the underwhelming previews started to creep in.
Sleep I revised down to sub 20.....which meant it was out as an anchor....
Christmas looks like it is a cold mess......
So that left midway with a pretty decent anchor.......take into account Veterans weekend....and it could vie for BP.
So while I considered a Midway/Jojo line-up....
After checking checking my numbers with a few people I went for a Midway Bp anchor.
And thus I found myself on a 4/1/3 of Midway/Zombie/Brooklyn.
I still eye a number of medium/low fillers that could steal.....Jojo, Zombie, Brooklyn....
So, over to you....
without further ado...
Show Those Screens!!!
Same as OP, but I was pretty confident in a Zombieland BP for most of the week. That preview number was just enough to sway me.Nov 8, 2019, 9:09am PSTEdited
I was on last Christmas train too until that preview number. I went 4-1-3 tooNov 8, 2019, 9:10am PST
Same. I am 178 in SS right now and there are only 46 people ahead of me that don't have the consensus lineup, and I would probably move past less than half of those if this becomes the PC. Not a moving week barring some surprises...Nov 8, 2019, 9:12am PST
Same. 4-1-3, which was also my Monday night lineup, until I changed yesterday for a Zombieland heavy lineup. Then back to my original lineup after Thursday's numbers.Nov 8, 2019, 9:13am PST
4/1/3 here also.
You've got 2 shots at BP, with Midway at the top, and Motherless Brooklyn at the bottom.
I also thought about Jo-Jo Rabbit, and tried to find a way for it to beat out Zombieland straight up, but in order to do so, then it would become a BP frontrunner. And, if that happened, would be a 3/5 combo, and I didn't want to lose that 4th screen of Midway.
Tiebreaker: I never thought I'd be considering a sub $20 mil weekend for Dr Sleep, but here we are. That $1.5 mil Thursday preview should mean a weekend that doesn't reach $20 mil. And, I'm assuming that the $1.5 mil Thursday did NOT include the special October 30th screenings, because if it did, then we're talking mid teens for an opening weekend!Nov 8, 2019, 9:37am PST
4/1/3 of Midway/Zombie/Brooklyn for me. Didn't look like any other way to go plus covers 2 BP candidate's 🤞Nov 8, 2019, 9:59am PST
95% of the big dogs have the same lineup. Remember back in the old days when a hand full of players would have the same lineup... I don't know if it good or bad for the game.Nov 8, 2019, 10:15am PST
I wanted to get max JoJo Rabbit.Nov 8, 2019, 11:31am PSTEdited

They could change the deadline to 5pm thursday, at least that would take thursday previews out of the mix which would result in more variety.Nov 8, 2019, 11:44am PST
I have the same as the consensus.Nov 8, 2019, 11:47am PST
