Yeah, that's another factor too. I didn't have time off to see it in IMAX and it's now broken my streak of seeing every MonsterVerse film in IMAX (including Pacific Rim because I want to). I'm pretty upset about that. It looked like a film that would benefit greatly from seeing it in that format. Definitely moreso than something like Men In Black.

Apparently at my theater the same had happened with Rocketman and Ma.

Not sure if this also happened at others theaters as well with those two. As with had Missing Link and Brightburn as well which released before those two and Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Is your cinema like a big named one such as AMC and Regal or is it a smaller one/local?

Good. Dark Phoenix didn't deserve to exist to begin with.

Unless they deserve (Such as especially Fant4stic) it which this film did. Logan concluded the franchise perfectly so this didn't need to exist.

Even films I think are dumb like Twilight I don't wish them to fail, I mean someone out there is a fan and enjoys it. It's the same reason I don't get the haters who went to the MLP thread on here or look up types of porn they hate and leave negative comments or draw hate art of a character they hate being killed. Even if you think it's funny to annoy the people who like something you don't, you're still dedicating your time to something you dislike instead of seeking out something you do enjoy.

I guess let sleeping lions lay? I dunno.

Here's my reaction to the Emoji Movie:

"Well that looks dumb" didn't watch it and moved on.

"Yeah it looks dumb" *shrugs, moves on*

True, I don't like to wish failure upon others for pretty much the same reason. But it does eventually make you bitter and slightly resentful if something like KOTM tragically fails while popular stuff always invariably succeeds despite you not liking it and people like Mr Goji and Watch rub that in your face.

A lot of AMC's in NJ are dropping KOTM this weekend to make room for Toy Story and Child's Play. Actually, a lot of May movies are going away this weekend. I'm not seeing John Wick or Pikachu anymore. Avengers is finally being dropped as well. However, Rocketman and Aladdin are still playing, go figure.

Both did more business than King of the Monsters last weekend, which is looking fairly front loaded:

So not too surprising they are hanging around.

Meanwhile Ma is out of my local theater. Shows Godzilla did better then that had same with Brightburn, Missing Link (Which didn't deserve to bomb) and Hellboy which only lasted for two weeks.

It looks like all my local theaters will stop playing KotM by the 31st. So only about a month of play in my local area (only played for 2 weeks at my local theater).

I'm going to see it today for the 8th and final time in theaters. I gotta take the bus to a nearby city to get there where it's playing at the multiplex. If anyone wants to see KotM before it leaves theaters, do so now or soon! There isn't a lot of time left for it.

Gonna try and see it again in theaters this weekend. I am looking forward to seeing it show up in dollar theaters as there's one right behind my house and I haven't been able to see it in 3D in any of the regular theaters.
