This Week on the Boxoffice Podcast: What Went Wrong with In the Heights?

This week on the Boxoffice Podcast, a full house of hosts—Daniel Loria, Shawn Robbins, Rebecca Pahle, Russ Fischer—break down the disappointing debut of In the Heights: Is it a strike against Warner Bros.’ day-and-date release strategy, or was sub-par marketing at play? Further, as we approach the halfway point of 2021, the co-hosts share their lessons from the first half of the year and the upcoming 2021 releases they’re most looking forward to. Boxoffice Pro Chief Analyst Shawn Robbins also shares his thoughts on whether a $5 billion domestic box office in 2021—called out by AMC CEO Adam Aron as a key benchmark by which to establish theatrical recovery—is likely or even realistic.

In the Heights‘ Marketing Not Penetrating Spanish-Language Media

In a title where we have a very diverse cast, we didn’t see too many stars or the director show up and put in the time to do Spanish language U.S. media on [Univision and Telemundo]…. And I’m specifically talking about folks like director Jon Chu, like star Anthony Ramos, that went on every English language outlet I can imagine and said how this is a great opportunity for Latin American representation, but somehow couldn’t find the time to show up to these two Spanish-language networks to promote the title. Lin Manuel Miranda carried all media appearances in Spanish on his back. We just didn’t see the same commitment from other folks when it came to marketing it in the community.

Whether a $5B Domestic Gross Is Achievable in 2021

We’re currently around $800 million. By the end of this month, that should be peeking over $900 million, give or take a little bit. … This could be a protracted process. It’s really tough to say. I think $5 billion is achievable. I wouldn’t say that we should really commit to that being an expectation yet with our own internal forecast… Maybe it’s being too conservative, but I think something like $4 billion is is more realistic, even once we get into that busier timeframe, because there’s just no telling how some of these movies might perform.

Lessons Learned in the First Half of 2021

The recovery of the cinema is directly tied to the progress of the vaccination effort, not only here in the United States, but around the world. These big studio tentpoles rely incredibly on the performance of overseas markets. And if Europe is lagging behind, well, those movies aren’t going to be as willing to jump the gun and fight to get in a little bit earlier, even if the U.S. is progressing on a positive level. Same thing with Latin America; Disney performs very, very well in Latin America. It’s a region where vaccine progress is really lagging behind. So for me, the conversation about box office really has a big asterisk until the conversation around the vaccine can get a little bit better defined. And unfortunately, even though things in the U.S. are improving, we’re still far behind around the world.

AMC Theatres Announces First-Ever Juneteenth Series, Featuring Do the Right Thing, Love & Basketball, Moonlight, and More

AMC Theatres has announced their first-ever Juneteenth series, titled “AMC Black Picture Showcase Celebrating Juneteenth,” to be held at select theaters from Friday, June 18 through Thursday, June 24.

The series features seven films separated into three categories—”Black Changemakers,” “Black Cinema,” and “Black Joy”—with tickets set at $5 apiece (plus tax). The films, listed in full below along with participating theaters, will also be available as part of AMC’s Private Theatre Rental program, starting at $99 for an auditorium of up to 20 guests. The series marks AMC’s first series organized around Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the emancipation of enslaved peoples in the United States.

 “This is a proud and historic moment for AMC, that could not have happened without the influence of our African American associates who used their voices to underscore the importance of honoring Juneteenth as a bedrock of American history,” said Adam Aron, CEO and president of AMC Theatres, “This opportunity is a celebration of the impact and accomplishments of African Americans in cinema. It is nothing less than a privilege for AMC to showcase their extraordinary talent.”

Malco Theatres’ Cinema Week Initiatives Include Perks for Loyalty Club Members, F9 Advance Screenings & More

Malco Theatres is the latest exhibitor to announce it will celebrate the inaugural Cinema Week by offering a host of special screenings, member discounts, giveaways and more.

Designed to encourage moviegoers to return to their local theaters, Cinema Week is slated to take place from June 22-27. Over 300 exhibitors representing over 30,000 screens in the U.S. and Canada will participate in the event, which is supported by the Independent Cinema Alliance, the National Association of Theatre Owners and sponsors including Fandango, Atom Tickets, Coca-Cola, Screenvision Media and more. 

Malco’s Cinema Week initiatives include offering Double Loyalty Points on ticket and concession purchases to its Marquee Rewards loyalty program members from June 21-27, as well as a complimentary Shirley’s Gourmet Popcorn to those who purchase a large popcorn (at participating locations, while supplies last). Various other in-theater giveaways and social media prizing will also be offered.

Additionally, select Malco locations will host special double-feature screenings of A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II on June 23, and advance shows of F9 (including on IMAX & MXT screens) on June 24. A sneak preview of Werewolves Within will also be offered on June 23 at Malco’s Collierville Cinema Grill, Ridgeway Cinema Grill, Grandview Cinema & IMAX and Razorback Cinema Grill & IMAX locations.

Nationally, Malco has also announced an interactive #DitchYourCouch contest that will award Fandango gift cards as well as exclusive movie memorabilia and prize packs supplied by several film studios.

“Movie theaters connect us. They are where stories are shared and discussed in a communal experience,” said Brandon Jones, Executive Chairman of the Founding Committee of Exhibitor and Studio Partners for Cinema Week. “Following such a challenging year, I’m humbled by the enthusiasm and support from our sponsors and partners who want to help us remind audiences that the magic happens when you go to the movies. There’s nostalgia there. It’s where we go for entertainment, and by launching Cinema Week, we want to preserve the culture of going to the movies.”

“With flat screen TVs in most every home, you can now stay home and ‘watch’ movies,” added Jimmy Tashie, Co-Chairman, Malco Theatres. “Seeing a major action movie at home is not the same as viewing one in a true ‘state of the art’ theatre. Modern cinemas offer viewers a ‘cinematic experience’, the kind that immerses the viewer in a high-tech sight and sound journey that can only be experienced in a modern cinema with large screens and multi-track surround sound channels. Filmmakers know the difference and most prefer their art to be enjoyed by audiences in communal settings where the ‘experience’ is shared by all in attendance. No one else delivers emotions quite like the movies. So, you can watch it or experience it. The choice is yours.”

Tickets for June 18-June 24 and F9 are available via www.malco.com and through the Malco app.  Tickets for June 25-July 1 can be purchased starting Tuesday, June 22.
