    CANTINFLAS limited release WORKS WELL

    Targeted strategy by Pantelion (Teleivisa + Lionsgate) is working well. When I saw the film yesterday it was interesting they didn't preview any upcoming big LGF movies, they did preview a Pantelion horror movie. The movie was well attended at 4:30 on Labor Day. In fact it was better attended than X3.

    • I know its complicated with deals and reasons and such but if Life of Crime was released wide this past weekend rather then like 10 theaters it would have been #1 at the box office easy and could have rolled the same way We are the Millers did last year at this time. Im pretty sure it even had much better reviews. Something tells me that The Skeleton Twins which is getting great buzz along with festival awards and 100% on RT along with two of the hottest stars in hollywood is also somewhat limited release Sept 12th. I hope this same day VOD is paying off on some of these films that appear to me to be better set for BO 2500 and up theater count release.

      • If you look at Cantinflas, it was the highest dollar per theatre count over the weekend. The strategy works well . The Houdini minseriies on the History Channel was great and as LGF continues to add to its content the VOD and streaming media revenue will continue to grow with the popularity of each of the channels. John - the targeted releases work much better than a wide release. VOD and streaming media revenue going forward will be where it's at.
