Re: Battle of Gods Box Office - $49.7 million (#6 in US!)

Post by sailorspazz » Fri Aug 08, 2014 8:48 pm

At least for my local theaters, a lot of them only had screenings on Tuesday and Wednesday. That may have been the case in other cities as well, which is why the number of theaters reporting ticket sales for Thursday was a lot lower. On the other hand, I see one local theater is playing the movie every day through next Tuesday, so there should be more numbers coming in for a while, since Funimation's officially announced release dates of 5-7 + 9 are clearly not true for every theater.

It only did $263,000 thats incredibly disappointing. It was only shown in like half the theatres too I certainly wasn't expecting that, $3,000,000 is probably out of reach now. It's not even supposed to be shown today so if it does appear it won't be much.

On the plus side it has pushed the movie past $50,000,000 just about.

The only other thing I would have liked for to happen would have been for BoG to outgross DBE but it'd need to make another $8 million and I don't see that happening. It has Australia and New Zealand for a day, maybe it can hit $52 million but it'd need to release in more places.

DBE made US$8 of its US$58 millions in China though.

I absolutely loved the movie. The English voice actors have now, in their own right, owned the characters. The American fan base who saw this movie love and respect DBZ so much more now. Seriously, I'm damn glad this movie was made and cannot wait for the next one. Fucking awesome this movie was. :clap:

I'm not 100% sure on this but don't expect any numbers to be given until Monday now. They'll give out estimates but it won't be until Monday that they'll reveal actual numbers and then we'll know how much it made over Friday, Saturday and Sunday (which probably won't be much).

Although i just noticed on twitter there will be one more showing this Tuesday at another one.. I hope to make it.

France hasn't screened the movie, you know.

Yeah that's pretty odd because DBZ is pretty popular over there. Italy and Spain are the only European countries to get the movie.

We're probably going to have to wait until Monday's actuals to see how it did on Saturday. It should show up on this chart.

It might have data on any Friday and Sunday numbers as well. I wonder if it'll make more on Saturday compared to Thursday.

I'm not surprise that TMNT beat BOG, but I didn't think it will be #1. Despite the bad reviews, TMNT holds a big house hold name and the series is still popular with kids.

I'm confident it will, but only if the number of theaters showing the movie on saturday are the same amount (I doubt itll be more) as thursday. If people had time to watch it on the weekdays, they'd watch it on premiere day, or even wednesday. But on Saturday, you get the people that work through the weekday and dont have time to watch movies. Weekends are the biggest draws for theaters for that reason alone. I know my saturday night screening was full, at least.

Looks like the movie did more than well enough in theaters to be considered a success for FUNimation.

I hope they take their money and use it to bring us more Dragon Boxes....

It looks like Funimation is doing additional screening this week. I wonder how long they can keep extending this and how it will affect the final gross?

I just hope this won't hold on the official home video release like Funi is doing with Eva 3.0.
