Time to check the showtime counts for the Nielsen Top 40+1!


FML Nerd's Table: http://showtimes.fmlnerd.com/index.html


Movie | Theaters | Showtimes | 3D | IMAX | Shows/Theater | Theater Count Change | Showtime Count Change
Finding Dory | 1028 | 14056 | 3907 | 2 | 13.7 | -3.8% | -14.0%
Independence Day: Resurgence | 1066 | 11420 | 3696 | 837 | 10.7
Central Intelligence | 943 | 6179 | 0 | 0 | 6.6 | -4.0% | -21.8%
Free State of Jones | 910 | 4225 | 0 | 0 | 4.6
The Shallows | 896 | 5345 | 0 | 0 | 6.0
The Conjuring 2 | 849 | 3729 | 0 | 0 | 4.4 | -9.0% | -33.6%
Now You See Me 2 | 852 | 3655 | 0 | 0 | 4.3 | -12.6% | -25.6%
The Neon Demon | 347 | 1683 | 0 | 0 | 4.9
X-Men: Apocalypse | 602 | 1801 | 65 | 0 | 3.0 | -29.3% | -45.5%
Alice Through the Looking Glass | 105 | 305 | 8 | 0 | 2.9 | -81.0% | -83.6%
Warcraft | 569 | 2031 | 322 | 0 | 3.6 | -40.7% | -65.2%
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows | 533 | 1717 | 39 | 3 | 3.2 | -37.1% | -58.5%
Me Before You | 462 | 1285 | 0 | 0 | 2.8 | -41.7% | -64.3%
Captain America: Civil War | 277 | 823 | 7 | 0 | 3.0 | -49.0% | -48.9%
The Angry Birds Movie | 139 | 413 | 11 | 0 | 3.0 | -78.8% | -82.2%


  • So long Alice & Angry Birds - we hardly knew ye
  • In the wake of Dory-mania, looks like the lower-priced movies are feeling the sting of the three big new releases (not including Neon Demon). X-Men losing "only" 45% of its shows almost seems like a good week compared to the bulk of these.
  • We're definitely seeing some runtime effect with Shallows & FSoJ. Shallows able to squeeze in nearly 6 showings/theater running at 85 minutes while FSoJ can only muster around 4.5 with its 139 minute run time.
  • C2 & NYSM2 both shed quite a few shows, but still getting over 4 showings/theater, so they are still getting a full alottment.
  • X-Men now with more theaters than Warcraft! Looks like WC could be taking a tumble to the tune of 1500 theaters lost.

    Hey Phil, how does the number of ID4R showings compare to say X-Men and TMNT2 on their opening weekend?

    Good question M37. Of the major new releases since I started doing this, it's closest comp is, of all things, Alice (also 10.7 showings/theater & also getting IMAX). It is in range of X-Men (12.0) and beating out TMNT (9.3).

    That makes sense, since they were projected at $82, $61 (but trending down) and $27 (under forecast).


    So its in the $40-$65 range based on showtime allocation. That's not entirely helpful :-/

    Nailed the Warcraft drop, nicely done.


    I'm disappointed by the MBY theater drop; it's MTW holds were verrrrry intriguing. But it's just dropping too many theaters/shows to consider.

    Look at Phil and M playing nice. Like two long-time besties!


    So what's your O/U bets of the week? I'd like to see FSOJ and Shallows.....
