Panic: Hollywood Frantic For Support

The domestic box office saw a 24 percent decrease from the previous year and a 42 percent decrease from the previous pre-pandemic year, 2019.

Yes, Hollywood is freaking out, but the industry and the gullible Hollywood media continue to tell themselves (and the rest of us) falsehoods about why.

One studio insider said to the far-left Hollywood Reporter, “We are worried.” “People don’t regularly go to the movies.”

Indeed, they don’t regularly attend the movies due to their poor quality.

Movies are bad, and that’s what’s killing moviegoers. Since Hollywood’s “awakening” five years ago, a growing number of people have rationally abandoned their “moviegoing habit.”

Of course, Hollywood and its media acolytes will not acknowledge this. Rather than examining the reasons for this year’s failures, they attribute them to last year’s strike:

“Near the end of the strike negotiations, studio executives faced accusations of dishonesty when they asserted that their 2024 release schedules were at risk every day the four-month strike persisted. The impact of such warnings is now becoming apparent. After a difficult winter and spring, the early summer box office is in ruins without the customary parade of tentpoles, including a superhero picture to kick things off in May. According to Comscore, domestic movie office revenue for the first half of the year is $2.68 billion, which is 42% behind 2019—the last regular year before the pandemic—and a staggering 24% less than the same period last year. Actually, this year has seen a weekly decrease from 2023; the smallest difference was 11% at the release of Godzilla v. Kong: The New Empire and Dune: Part Two.”

The current question is whether theater can survive in this post-pandemic world and the increase in streaming.

“Box office analysts acknowledge that the ecosystem is extremely delicate, but they cling to the hope that when all-audience tentpoles Despicable Me 4, Inside Out 2, and Deadpool & Wolverine open in the coming weeks, followed by Beetlejuice 2 in early September, moviegoing will pick up.” However, a consistent amount of products won’t be available until 2025. It also doesn’t help that a lot of films are launching later than anticipated (this weekend, everyone will be watching Bad Boys: Ride or Die to see whether it can make its launch budget of $48 million to $50 million). One studio insider admits, “We are concerned.” It would be foolish not to consider that. People’s deep-rooted streaming habits and lack of movie-going habits pose a significant issue. Nevertheless, no true igniter has materialized.

  1. Find blame where one wishes, yet the fact remains the ‘movie goer’ refuses to tolerate the likes of DeNiro or others that chooses to impale a family with their warped ideas. Its up to a family to make that decision, not Hollywood or any of its cronies, including the movie makers. They merely got what they shoveled to the public, like Bud did with its warped advertising embowing homosexuals then denying it was their choice. BS, some one approved the project, yet they (The Bud Board) failed to remove them. Guess who – the board. They remain the real issue, just like Hollywood self designed leaders that choose to dismantle the family.

  2. SO THEY ARE PEOPLE; THAT THINGS AFFECT. JUST WAIGHT , THE WORST IS COMING BECAUSE DUMB JOE DID SO MUCH DAMAGE TO OUR ECONOMY, OUR SAFTY, FROM WHO KNOWS WHO HE LET IN, TO INFLATION SO HIGH PEOPLE CAN’T PAY THEIR BILLS MUCH LESS EAT GOOD

  3. MAYBE NOW, YOU CAN SEE WOKE FOR WHAT IT IS. AND IT STARTS WITH OUR CHILDREN. TRAIN THEM YOUNG LIKE HITLER DID

  4. I will never go to the theatre again.These woke institutions have made it to damn expensive to see movies any longe. Movies are too woke and the remakes are more woke, especially with all this DEI bullshit hiring policies. Hollweird has gone to shit. That’s one reason to have cable. You have the choice of what to watch and in my house it isn’e wokeness. You can try to blame the pandemic all you want, but hollyweird was headed in that direction of wokeness a long time ago, starting with Muslem O. FBO,FJB,FKH, and fck all dummycraps because they have destroyed America. TRUMP 2024

  5. Joe Biden is one of America’s biggest problems, but he isn’t the only one. If American citizens don’t wake up, “Made In China” is going to destroy America without firing a shot. MAGA!

  6. There are too many idiots in America. They like being controlled because they are lazy. The Hollywood actors egos are so big they really think we like them, No! Only a hand full of good actors are left but woke people in Hollywood make it hard for great actors to be in movies. The remakes are disgusting. They change the race of a character to fit the woke but the woke don’t go to movies because they have no money unless mommie and daddy give it to them. Mommie and daddy are going broke because their children are ungreatful and stupid. But they raised them to be idiots and unamerican. Haven’t been to movies in over twenty years. They don’t entertain anyone so why go. No new faces just the same old crappy actors who shouldn’t be in a role that belongs to great actors not woke babies! They all need to go back to acting school. Pitting race against race is disgusting. Disney is the worst. Please women in Hollywood keep your clothes on. Your bodies are not that good and most are too fat or skinny. If you have a good body let them quess more entertaining than being slap in face with some nake person thinking they look good nude.

  7. Hollywood you get no support most of the actors have gone WOKE and the American do not like it . Actors like DeNiro have driven people away. DeNiro is the Scum of Hollywood and the ones like him. Many of the GOOD actors have moved out of Hollywood and even Calif. The WOKE people cant see how BAD BIDEN has destroyed this Nation, They have Money and they do not care about you, just like Joe Biden . Biden only cares about the illegals.

  8. Yes the problem is biden, he should never goten into the white house, if you listen to him you’ll see that he is a dottering old man that not only cannot find his way to most places he wants to go . Also it’s hard to understand how a person is in the posititon of the presidency, especially since Biden has made a habit of craping in his pants because either he cannot find a tolit or he dosent realize he is doing it ! I also have learned that one of Bidens grandaughters if in a panic trying to find her diary because she wrote a lot about how Joe Biden took her into the shower with him where he touched her in areas he should not have . Ther poor grand daughter realized the contents of her diary and she is going crazy thying to find it before someone that may release the contents to the public ! But after seeing Biden placeing his hands in young ladys on occansions and perhaps no one should get away with molesting young ladys especially if the offender is the President of the United States !!!

  9. Let’s make it a permanent Boycott of Hollywierd and watch it slowly die…

  10. DeNiro is a loud mouth know account after who is all woke . So many of the actors have gone woke and the movies are now also all woke. So it’s hard to find a good movie out of all the wokeness going on. And Biden are any democrat gets back in office in November then movies will be the last of your worries. Food , gas, rent, electric, just every day living will be very hard. Pray and pray hard that the democrats want get back in we the people and our country want be able to take it.

  11. Reading all the comments have given me a bit of hope for this country. It’s good to know that people see what is really going on in this country. WOKE Hollyweird is only part of the problem. They are sick minded and trying to normalize what is definitely NOT normal. My husband and I have not gone to a movie theater in years, and we used to go quite often. We now enjoy watching great quality movies at home on streaming apps and totally support the good guys that have left Hollywood, like Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, Chris Hemsworth, Dennis Quaid, Chris Platt, Jeff Daniels, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. I think DeNiro has written his own death notice on his career. He sides with Biden and the money hungry criminal politicians that have become the evil in our country. I pray the good shall conquer the evil.

  12. Hollywood needs a good kick in the ass for going woke . So this is what they get going broke going woke . A lesson learned the hard way.

  13. My own flash poll. How many people have gone to a theatre paid for the high prices of admission, $8 Cokes and $12 Popcorn only to go in and watch the movie. Then at the end of the movie realized that they had already seen all the good parts in the commercials – the rest was garbage?
