So Arrival is expanding to 1,100 this weekend.. .and we don't get a chance to play it.
Manchester will hit about 1,500, which should make it a great play.
Things will be shaken up regardless:

    I am beginning to understand the price structure a little better. As it relates to this week I am still having trouble seeing all the love for LLL. Every week since it debuted it has been a favorite for many, but doesn't seem to really hit the correct number. Kind of like that uber prospect that can't make it in the show. This week looks like more of this same. Big expansion but still under performing projections. Guess that is ok if the majority play it and it doesn't succeed again.

    I somewhat agree with that last point Minion except that 2 weeks ago it did perform to expectations it just got blindsided by a out of nowhere bp winner. I'm fairly sure it played close to projections last week too which put it out of contention. Keep in mind those early projections for 10 m were probably made without knowing the theater count

    It really only under performed one week, to be fair. It's been hitting exactly where people have projected it but then other movies hit larger than projected. Making it always the bridesmaid.

    Here's where the La La Love is coming from:


    1. 14(!) Oscar nominations
    2. Expected to double its theater count.
    3. Fantastic run so far, constantly exceeding expectations.

    LLL has rolled out a new advertising campaign. And my teenager has seen it twice and wants to see it again. Full disclosure: see also wants to see ADP

    I've seen a lot of LLL ads on YouTube.
