Q&A: Theater Allocations and Clearances

Hold on to your hats folks, this question is a doozy.

This question comes in from Bryan Wolfie (great name by the way), and Bryan writes in via email:

With Fox, and recently Universal, getting rid of Movie Allocations which studio do you think is next to give it up and how do you see it changing the movie viewing industry?

First off I have to say, great question!  Also, full disclosure, I had to do a bit of research in order to catch up on all of the details pertaining to this event as it is still ongoing.  So at the end of the answer I will provide links to where I got my information should you, or any of  you readers, care to look into the matter more.

Also, unless I am mistaken, what you mean by “Movie Allocations” is called a clearance agreement; which I will get to in a bit.  And Allocated Zones, are areas in which there is direct competition between theater chains.

To the readers; if you know what clearances are you may want to skip ahead to the bottom a bit, because I’m about  to get long and winded and explain a lot before getting to the meat and potatoes of the question. Continue reading “Q&A: Theater Allocations and Clearances”

Q&A: Blockbuster I’m most excited for/Favorite Marvel Character

Once again, I get to talk about myself with another opinion question! Awesome.  Sarah from Zwolle, La writes:

Hey!  I have a question.  What summer blockbuster are you most excited about this year? Also, what is your favorite Marvel character to date?

 Thanks for the question Sarah!

This is actually an interesting question because the blockbuster movie that I was most looking forward to was Captain America: Civil War – and that movie already came out, I saw it, I loved it.

So now I have to decide what my favorite blockbuster is now that I am most looking forward to.  And I’m going to admit – I’m going to cheat and say that I have two now that are tied for first place! Continue reading “Q&A: Blockbuster I’m most excited for/Favorite Marvel Character”

Q&A: Ticket Inflation and More!

Hey guys! I got two questions to answer here, but both are going to nice, short, and sweet.

Remember, if you would like your question answered you can send it in on my Facebook Page, or email me at moviereelnews@gmail.com Once a week I will take a few questions and answer them.  If you do not see your question one week I will eventually get to it.

Both questions are written in by Michelle Blackwell.  Her first question is:

Which film earned the 2nd highest domestic box office earnings in history after adjusting for inflation?

A quick note about this before getting to the meat and potatoes of the question. Adjusting for ticket price inflation is not an exact science and can only be used to give us a general idea of what a movie might have made if released in a different year.  And that’s assuming it sold the same number of tickets.  A movie that sold 1,000 tickets in 1950 may not sell 1,000 tickets today.  But I can’t account for that.

Ok, so in Wolverine Origin, how could he survive a special bullet to the head? I feel like if he was shot and he was actually presumed dead he should BE dead. I know he’s next to immortal, but he freaking died!
