For much of the past week, one of the most talked about numbers in the film industry has been the $ 20 million opening at the domestic box office of Christopher Nolan’s “Denet” on Labor Day holiday weekend.
The current situation of the audience regarding the epidemic, the low number of viewers due to social distance activities and the fact that even though major box office markets such as Los Angeles and New York are closed, this figure seems to be softer.
Now though, Variety & Deadline Report that we do not know the numbers – Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly refusing to share box office details other than the film’s opening opening weekend amount. In fact, the number we got was given as “respectable”.
It also means that the reported total includes all previews kicked in several days before opening the night – which is higher than the first weekend total for the first week. The actual four-day opening holiday weekend for “Denet” is estimated at a domestic gross of about 12 million.
Reporting this weekend is complicated because many will still use the old 20 million, so if the figures are released, the second weekend fall will look even worse. That is, if the figures are published. For now, studios may stop reporting their gross revenue.
