Out of sheer curiosity I looked up some typical theater numbers.
It changes from opening week and from there week to week, but when averaged out the length of the film in the theaters, the studio gets about 1/2 and the theater gets about 1/2 of the ticket prices.
I read that Avengers: IW cost $320 million to make and another estimated $150-160 million in marketing, so nearly half a billion dollars total.
So, Disney will not make a dime on this movie until it hits the $1 billion dollar mark in global ticket sales.
It obviously should hit that number easy, as Avengers 1, Avengers 2, Black Panther, Iron Man 3, and Captain America Civil War have all hit the $1 billion mark.
I think it should easily hit the $2 billion mark but will fall shy of Avatar's $2.7 billion world wide mark. Thoughts?
Not something I follow but I would imagine it will go down as one of the biggest movies of all-time. 1st week- it's hard to compare to some of the other big releases that were done in summer or on holiday breaks. With the reviews of Infinity War, whatever they end up naming the next Avengers movies, coming out a year from now...that movie has a chance to break some records.
I think if they opened Avengers 5 on Memorial Day weekend next year, it would do the biggest 5 day (Thursday-Monday) total in the history of film (not adjusted for inflation).
