Do the time a movie gets released effect the sales. For example the movie it. Wondering if they would have waited 1 more month to Oct. 10th or there abouts would do better compared to the Sept 8th. Being closer to Halloween and scary haunted houses and hay rides ECT. Wondering if u all thought if that makes a difference or the movie is going to do what it does no matter when it gets released

halloween season will be in full swing starting october, so 4 weeks seems reasonable as a lead in. movies have been in theaters for weeks longer than that based on word of mouth and performance.

The dumping ground for movies is February through April. If the studio doesn't believe in a film this is when it will be released. That's why I had high hopes for The Dark Tower movie- it was originally slated for an early release and then was postponed until its later date and that made me think that the studio thought they had a summer blockbuster on their hands. But, it was not to be.....:sad:

Nope. Nothing more about DT, right? All mention of him should be kept on Hot Topics. Yes, even when Uncle Stevie himself mentions him. I even made you a new thread there. ;)
...okey doke, but was operating under the concept that it was apolitical-just Steve having some fun....

Do u guys and gals think the people who never read a sk book, never saw the first it and really no clue about this movie will watch it bc of the clown thing we had a year ago or so . In case u didn't know people were dressing up as clowns and just standing still in a field, or side of road ECT ECT. Then just start chasing people. Kind of swept the nation. U think people will go to see the movie bc of that. And also some probably think the movie was made bc of that

i saw at least one confused soul in a comments section telling her friends it was based on john wayne gacy. she seemed excited, albeit clueless as could be.
