originally posted by: apydomis There will probably not be another situation like this happen again, where a single movie is shown to be the only listing on a weekend across the world.

it might happen one day - but that has certainly not happened yet.

(You do realise that 98% of the world is not in the USA? )

Do you know how many ideas are expressed that are totally wrong, but turn into something big because the internet is always right? I’ve tried to buy tickets to movies that didn’t show them scheduled two days later, and the next day there was a full schedule showing for the next week. Absolutely nothing to do with Trump, or any other political crap, simply when the schedule gets posted. But by all means, let’s go with Trump instead because that apparently makes more sense.

It’s always funny how anyone that doesn’t go with the group think is dumping over every idea expressed.

Speaking of "scheduled" movies, my funniest story about something like that was the one (and only) time I went to a movie alone (by myself). It was a 'boring' movie about Henry Ford. None of my GF's or other buddies wanted to see it, but I did. So, while bored one night, I went in and bought a ticket.

When I was buying my tickets, I noticed that there were all these people in the lobby with all these crazy costumes on. Never saw that before at a movie. I figured it must be for some movie that was other than the one I was going to watch. BUT...then all these same people started filtering into the theater where the Henry Ford movie was showing. I even got up to go peek in all the other theaters to see if maybe these folks were in the wrong theater! I mean, why would you ever put on a crazy costume to see a movie about Henry Ford???

Well, it turned out that the 'late movie' was not the one on the marquee (but I didn't know this). And, the movie that WAS showing was, The Rocky Horror Picture Show...a movie I had zero knowledge of. So, as the movie started, and people started getting up and singing, squirting water out of squirt guns, and throwin' stuff (like chunks of hot dogs, etc.), I was pretty shocked to say the least! I kept waiting for the Henry Ford movie to start, but after about 20 minutes of the madness I began to realize the movie I was watching was different. I sat with my jaw agape for the entire show! Don't get me wrong, it was pretty entertaining, but I had no idea of the cult status of this film, so it was all a complete surprise to me! I felt pretty dumb not knowing about this movie, and I told all my friends about it. None of them had ever heard of it either (this was in Wyoming during the early 80's, so go figure).

And that was how I learned about the Rocky Horror Picture Show. LOL!

Confirmation bias is a thing. It happens.

The way these things are written is with lots of information, but vague enough on the specifics and connections, so that it seems like a grand scheme.

Trust me when I say I really wish the world were that interesting.

The majority of global box-office, however, is created by films from USA production companies, studios, and distributors. These companies set the release schedule, whether staggered by counties and dates or a wide goal release.

So while 98% of of the globe is not the USA, a vast majority of the global box-office, maybe not 98%, is controlled by companies based in the USA.

Oh boy! And what a way to find out!? 🤣

If you ever find yourself in the Detroit area, the theater in Royal Oak does a top notch showing of Rocky Horror. They used to do it fairly often, monthly even. That was years ago though, so no idea if they still do. Good times I haven't thought of in nearly twenty years.

And, for what it's worth, you can probably get caught up with what you missed on Henry Ford movie at the the same time.


Welp, scratch that about seeing it in Royal Oak.

R.I.P. Royal Oak's Main Art Theatre, which abruptly closed.

That's a big bummer.

Go look now. Depending on the theater chain, full schedules for the next week aren't released until Tuesday or Wednesday after they have their weekly meetings. The Harkins theater up the road from me showed one movie yesterday, today it has a full schedule.

People say it changed after Trump said he was not having his press conference.

LOL , The best way to never be proven wrong and reinforce your wants and believes is to keep a moving target. Not saying that is you but clearly many do.

I admitted it was odd when my theater only showed that one movie, but I also said I never really pay attention to movie theaters or release dates so I didn't know if that was normal or not.

However I also mentioned it made no sense from the start to utilize a movie theater to disclose information , use 5g, huddle people together, etc as there are far better means to accomplish such things. However most rational folks first figured a more rational explanation dealing with scheduling and or money as the likely reason versus a whimsical explanation.

However, I do enjoy a good doom porn especially those with early activation so I hope they keep them coming. Plus eventually a broken clock will be correct to the second.

I look forward to the next 1 moving showing on Jan15 or 16th . I wonder if it will be a new jackass?

There's not much that weekend, just Scream. Jackass is February 4 (if it actually comes out), the same day as Moonfall.

Just wait for people to get a load of Moonfall. I'm really hoping for that one to spur some theories.

(It's a Roland Emmerich masterpiece, to give you an idea.)

Didnt even know that was coming out as I given up on hollywood. Although it has a "Don't Look Up" feel to it.

Just saw the trailer but liked the part when Donald Sutherland said its to late to stop when asked why are they lying.

Seeing the change as in my own town and seeing the big deal they made of Jan 6th alone is enough to wonder, adding the fact that it was 666 days since the official declaration of a pandemic should make people at least suspicious of something planned. If not I find those of you who completely dismiss weird.

I called it here

I'll be shocked if 355 winds up on more than 3500 screens release weekend.

The movie was released on 3145 screens, making US$4.6M in its opening weekend. BoxOfficeMojo

This placed it third for the weekend, behind both Sing 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home, each coming in with US$11.6M and US$32.6M, respectively.

If this were a viral marketing campaign (it wasn't) it failed horrendously.
