9-10 Million for an unpromoted screening? Well that sounds good!
Still, I guess some people will be able to read it as "the film is failing miserably at the box office"
Heh. Love that it's already made more in a few hours than the animated movie ever made.
For only a few showings and being unpromoted on a work/school night, that's a good amount. When said idiots come to try and say that's proof of the movie failing, remind them that in the international market as of July 1st it's already made over $36 million, and that's only in 10 countries so far over a 3 day period, not including the other big markets like Japan and the UK.
I really really want this movie to make assloads of money so that whenever they finance the next movie they can double budget...lord knows that it needs a bigger budget.
I was at the monday night show in Providence, everyone there loved it, a few said they'd go and watch it again too.
I think we've got a big hit on our hands folks!
I saw it again last night at 8. Theatre was packed by 7, the audience actually clapped at the end of the movie. They definitely didn't go crazy like at Botcon, but everyone seemed to really like it.
I wasn't at botcon so I don't know how that crowd was, but the crowd last night was frickin' rowdy, there were at least 4 guys with Optimus Prime masks and tons of cheering thought the movie.
When the credits came up there was more clapping and cheering than I have EVER heard in a movie theater before.
I disagree about needing a doubled budget. This movie delivered a LOT for a $150 million dollar budget. Bay was bragging about how good the movie was while costing less than Spider-Man 3 or Pirates 3, and I have to agree with him (although part of me thinks that, if you included the costs of all the marketing done, Transformers probably didn't cost -that- much less than those other guys). Plus, the more they spend on a movie, the harder it'll be for it to make its money back.
The theater I was in was PACKED! I'm not suprised by these numbers.
There was more clapping than I remember in even Return of the Jedi.
I'm going to see it again tomorrow.
Can't wait! It's my second screening and I can't wait!
Remember folks. This was a preopening day screening.
Most shows in the Bay Area started AFTER 8PM until 11PM so only a few shows were available.
mor elikely 8-9M
So how many screens actually had it last night, compared to today?
