Welp, I was wrong there. Bad Boys gonna coast past that 3x multiplier. So better legs than Wick confirmed. A well deserved success.
Even if this weekend was inflated by holiday, an amazing hold for BB3 with only -6%, 200m locked
Jumanji even jumped +3%, 320m+ locked with an amazing 5.40x multi minimum by the end of its run

How much does Sonic need to turn a profit?
According to Charlie on BOT, $160M to recover
He said, with $150m domestic (= $82.5m for Paramount) and 200m overseas (= $80m for Paramount), it will break even

Jumanji multiplier is skewed by holiday opening. Still a success either way. Sony is on a roll lately. Please ignore Charlie's Angels.
What do you mean by "skewed by holiday opening" ? Its opening was inflated or deflated then ?
Yeah Sony Pictures will post their biggest fiscal year, although Charlie's Angels impacted their Q3 profits

Holiday openings are usually not massive, then films enjoy a run of 10 days or something where every single day plays like a weekend day, so they usually have really good multipliers because of that. For instance, Aquaman had a 4.94x. Bumblebee had a 5.87x
It is just with Star Wars posting monster OW during the holidays it has kind of warped some things.

with a 95m production budget (assuming they spent roughly equal on advertising) there's no way we're not getting a sequel. It should be decently profitable off of the theatrical run alone, before the after market revenues kick in.

They better replace the voice actor for tails in the sequel

Oh yes I see !
For a sequel coming from an overperformer previous movie, 5.40x is quite an achievement, still a success like you said

Oh, yes. Huge success. It is down about $190m worldwide compared to the last one. About $90m down domestic.
But Welcome to the Jungle was a monster hit that was unexpected. Lightning in a bottle. The fact that they came close again shows they are doing a very good job with these, and keeping the budgets fairly modest is good too.

Charlie’s angels, men in Black and most likely bloodshot will be the bombs in their lineup. Grudge to a smaller extent considering the low budget

I think Bloodshot is having the same problem as Birds of Prey. The marketing department is just not doing a good job selling this movie.

Not just because most people aren't aware this exists and is coming out next month. Not just because the actual trailer isn't doing a good job of getting people excited (which was the issue with BoP Trailer 1 without question vs Trailer 2. This especially apparent after seeing the movie).

But on a basic level... trailer 2 only received an international release online. They never released a clear US/Main version online. Some people are going to ignore international trailers thinking it's not a major new trailer release. It's a minor thing, but it still adds up.
