Thursday Previews

After two straight weeks of lackluster performances, I'm looking for some help. It seems that the Thursday preview numbers would've helped me out a lot each time but, to be honest, I'm not sure how to use them. I've heard people talk about multipliers on the MEGATHREAD but I'm not sure what that means.


Anyone out there with some advice?

    A multiplier is how much a thursday preview will transition into a weekend number.


    For instance, if a movie makes 100k in previews and has a multiplier of 12.6x, the weekend total would be 1,260,000. People use multipliers to compare movies and make estimates about overall performance, since similar movies tend to have similar multipliers. You can get an estimate of how a movie might perform based on movies we have preview number and multipler records of already.

    Thanks @chocoplex. How does one go about joining The Resistance?


    That all makes sense @mem, but how do people determine those multipliers?

    It's mostly using comps
