Analyst’s Commentary

Yes, another week where we should experience an increase over last year. And yes probably another week after that, but then the weekend of 10/31 the numbers should drop, but only briefly.
The future depends in no small part on the success of Interstellar and Big Hero 6.

Interstellar got pretty mixed buyer reactions, but is getting terrific advance interest. Whether or not one needs some knowledge of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity to fully comprehend the themes of the movie, there will be much box office generated by it. Another on the same week will be the expected success of Big Hero 6. Is it this year’s Wreck-It Ralph or this year’s Frozen. Frozen would be better but Ralph was pretty damned good.

John Wick is showing up strong on the internet, but that happens a lot with male dominated R rated films. In other measures, it is not as rosy. However reviews are very good so far and it could push a little beyond its expectations.

Ouija, the film inspired by the game is another of the horror conundrums. Relative to other horror films it isn’t getting the internet buzz that has propelled others to unexpected heights (ie: Annabelle) but there is a fair amount of interest in it demonstrated by other measures. Halloween is around the corner and it is a PG13 rated film which might help increase the breadth of audience.
