'Argylle' Explodes to $16.5M Opening – Deadline

'Argylle' Explodes to $16.5M Opening – Deadline

Saturday morning: While the movie market is hungry for big movies after the strike, Apple Original Films is getting $200 million from Matthew Vaughn's film. Argyle Doesn't cut it, though $16.5 million Opening, C+ CinemaScore, and 3 stars on PostTrak from Comscore/Screen Engine.

Ultimately, this group of actors and actresses is not provoking people to drive their cars to the cinemas.

Yes, yes, this is where he saw the trace. But we have to finally come out and say it. ready? Even though Apple is worth $2.87 trillion, and able to spend these $200 million (or in some cases, $150 million budgeted) movies like… Napoleon And Moonflower Killers -Make no mistake, dollar for dollar on the motion picture P&L sheet, these are losses and, in some cases, don't have the adjuncts that other films do, including foreign television.

In cases Napoleon And moonflower killers, There is a small window for transactional home entertainment. What's more, if Apple doesn't take a hit from this critically acclaimed film with a 35% Rotten Tomatoes score, Universal is in on its own distribution deal. Read on.

“How does Apple get away with not being hurt?” That's what many industry sources often ask me when it comes to a tech company playing in the box office space.

On the one hand, something to be thankful for on behalf of the show is that the streamer is embracing broad theatrical exposure. Then again, the total market is $59 million this weekend for all titles, -27% compared to last year. We certainly don't want Apple to give up the stage. However, how long can the era of low-grossing films in the $150 million to $200 million range last? this is the question. Will Apple finally tighten its belt after this series of expensive films? Who makes a $200 million R-rated movie? Because at the end of the day, every company wants profit.

The defense was that these films, ie argyle moonflower killers, And Napoleon They are branding plays for the service, a ploy to attract global subscriptions to Apple TV+. One film finance source told me that while these films are book bombs, they represent advertising costs for Apple. See the 10 Academy Award nominations and 200 awards (according to Apple CEO Tim Cook) for Martin Scorsese's film moonflower killers, And the anecdotal claim that the film is “the most popular film across streaming platforms” even though it has not appeared in the Nielsen streaming rankings yet.

Do these movies motivate Apple consumers to buy Apple products? Because I think the products were selling themselves well before this content spending came along. Cook recently boasted that Apple Services, the division that includes Apple TV+, rose 11% to $23 billion last quarter, with Apple TV+ subscriptions surpassing $1 billion.

Streamers like Apple and Amazon who are playing in the theatrical space realize that they need it to give their films an event feel, and are said to be looking, more than profit, to other diagnostics as benchmarks for achievement, for example, a decline in subscribers on the streaming site, and how well a film translates. To sales on the website (which is exclusive to Amazon).

But to say that big tech conglomerates like Apple and Amazon ($1.78 trillion) are Teflon losers is far from the truth. Amazon just laid off hundreds of workers in its Prime Video and MGM divisions. Remember Jason Rubel and Ted Hope running Amazon Films? Their mission was to make delicious, award-worthy food, just like Apple (albeit on much smaller budgets), and they did it with 2x Amazon Award winners like Manchester by sea.

Then there was the $80 million movie aviation pioneers, Starring Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne, it was produced specifically for Imax, but was cut into a short-window theatrical release and transferred to Prime Video. Ultimately, it was decided that management's production was not profitable or consistent enough for the brand. The point is: Don't tell me tech companies don't look at the bottom line.

For Universal, I hear it's a distribution deal, meaning they get a royalty of about 8% of the box office. Uni probably won't collect that. I hear Universal is on the hook for 50% of this $80 million marketing campaign (which has Vaughn's heavy fingerprints on it), and that the studio is recouping what it's owed in marketing from the box office before it collects distribution fees. All of these Apple distribution deals work differently. In some cases, some studios receive a guaranteed distribution fee, even if the film fails the BO

For Vaughn, this is arguably the lowest cinematic score of his career to date. It'll Be Fine: Funded by Marv argyle, Then it sold it to Apple for $200 million. The director self-finances his films and then sells them, which is what he is used to doing The Kingsman films, the first two films being acquired by 20th Century Fox for over $100 million each respectively.

Here men tend to be mostly male, 52% compared to 48% for females. This means that more than 25 to 40% were the majority who bought tickets and applied Argyle Score 73%. Women over 25 watched the PG-13 action movie 38% and rated it 78%. Diversity offerings were 53% Caucasian, 20% Latino and Hispanic, 12% Black, and 10% Asian.

Imax and PLFs account for 42% of Argyleweekend so far, with the film showing in the West, Mountain, South and South-Central regions. AMC Lincoln Square in New York City is the highest-grossing cinema in the country as of Friday at nearly $50,000.

Thursday night previews for the PG-13 action film directed by Matthew Vaughn brought in $1.7 million, lower than the $2.4 million previews recorded by Amazon MGM beekeeper A few weeks ago.
