What happened to the Pre-Thanksgiving Tentpole?

This year, the two movies scheduled to open on November 18th are THE MENU and SHE SAID. This also happens to be the weekend before Thanksgiving.

While both are high on our list of must-sees, it’s a bit surprising that these are the two titles that have landed on this date. That’s because the weekend before Thanksgiving has historically been one of the most coveted frames of the year.

Looking at the highest grossing November releases, exactly ten titles have opened above $100M. Nine were released the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Lionsgate owned the weekend for many years with THE HUNGER GAME and the TWILIGHT films, but it can be traced back to Warner Bros. and its HARRY POTTER series in the early 2000s. With shifting pandemic-era distribution trends, has this weekend lost its luster?

Unless DON’T WORRY DARLING or SMILE over-perform, this will be the first September since 2001 without a film opening above $20M.  THE WOMAN KING got close with a $19M debut. But the celebration of KING as a box office win only speaks to the entrenchment of […]
