Re: Baz Luhrmann`s Elvis film

Post by Josee »

Last Thursday I went to see the Elvis film again and the girl at the desk recognized me, because the previous time she had overheard me telling someone that I had seen Elvis perform live. It was a midday screening and out of about 40 people, 30 of them were youngsters. Everybody left when the credits started to roll, except one girl and me. At a certain point she was also leaving, but when she heard Eminem starting to sing, she came back and sat down again. By the way, if not a revival for Elvis, it sure put Memphis on the map. When I told that girl at the desk, that I was going to Memphis next week, another employee standing there, immediately said: Memphis, Tennessee. I'm quite sure that if I had said that some weeks ago, she would have looked at me and thought that I was going to Timboektoe. They both had seen the film for free and when I asked them if they thought I was crazy coming to see it for the fourth time, they said that they perfectly understood, because the film is great.

It will be interesting to see how well Brad Pitt's Bullet Train debut's this weekend. Can he still draw crowds with out it being a Tarantino movie with Leo Dicaprio. That opened with 41 million in North America. I checked pre sales at a local popular cinema and there were only 31 tickets sold. That's surprising.

So, you're not interested in the truth at all. And you call yourself an adult?
Now that is downright rude.

Baz was right. Streaming and home PPV streaming or totally 2 different things.
I agree. What he said was that it would not arrive on HBO Max before the Fall. So, in my opinion, he didn’t lie.
You are right. Baz told the truth. The people in the balcony have it in for him for some reason.

Now these are the projections from Variety


https://variety.com/2022/film/box-office/box-office-thor-love-and-thunder-second-weekend-where-crawdads-sing-paws-fury-1235318153/

“Elvis” should round out the box office’s top five. The Warner Bros. release added $2.3 million on Friday, only 32% down from one week ago. The Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic surpassed a $100 million domestic gross this week — an impressive result for a drama aimed squarely at older audiences.
Tiktok has been all over Elvis. The younger audience is in love with this movie! Some said they watched it 20 times insane

Brad Pitt is a sure magnet but when the movie, by WOM, or reviewer's mediocre tallies falls a tad short of expectations, his star power may suffer.

Look at Bullet Trein .......................54% reviewers ............... vs 80% public

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/bullet_train_2022

Look at Once upon a time............... 85% reviewers vs ..............70% public

The movie will remain in theatres a tad longer than 45 days. In fact, today, it starts its 45th day.

Maybe you’ll get off your arse and go to see it then? The person with the most to say about box office receipts, and he hasn’t even bought a ticket himself.

The Baz said it would not be seen at home until the autumn. That is the fact. He didn't say it won't be free to stream, or that you'd have to pay to see it.

You can't rewrite what he said. He was very clear.

My wife and I went to see it on opening night and we both thought it was brilliant. I enjoyed it far more than I did the Elvis film, although obviously nobody will believe me when I say that.

That's okay. I will be watching it on Monday on my home TV on Amazon Prime video. Already have it pre-ordered. Can't wait!!

On Spotify and in the last 4 weeks, there has been an increase in streaming across the whole catalogue in equivalent album sales of around 123k with the majority of streams on the 30 #1's album. Streaming for the soundtrack on the Elvis songs is around 11.8k which suggests that there is more streaming for the non Elvis songs.
Follewers have gone up in the last couple of months by half a million, but have more or less levelled out now
But increased streaming numbers alone are worthless as far as spurring BMG or Warners into action to release new product. When this film came out that was the wish, that people would go and see it and then the record and film companies would think “We must capitalise on this and bring out lots of stuff”. They’ll only do that if physical sales are increasing, they won’t do it if all that is happening is that people are listening to music on the same streaming accounts they were already paying for.

“It’s not rocket science”, as the saying goes.

Sometimes audiences are swayed by movie reviews and sometimes not. Some movies are not affected by bad reviews at all. Bad Super hero movies still make a boat load of money. guess it depends how badly you want to see a movie.

I wasn’t disagreeing with what you were saying…I was just giving you some numbers on the streaming side of things. When you look at the number of people who have gone to see the movie and of course that is exaggerated because many have seen it so many times, the overall sales including streaming is not that great. So yes, I don’t see Sony getting too excited - with all the hoopla going on, I was expecting more than just the 30 #1s charting.

The soundtrack got a bit of a boost this week with the physical release, but no doubt was created by the fans who must own a copy regardless of whether much of the non Elvis music on it would not have been given house room a few months ago. :wink:

So, you're not interested in the truth at all. And you call yourself an adult?
Baz was right. Streaming and home PPV streaming or totally 2 different things.
I agree. What he said was that it would not arrive on HBO Max before the Fall. So, in my opinion, he didn’t lie.
You are right. Baz told the truth. The people in the balcony have it in for him for some reason.
It seems that this is what he said - "Wanna make it clear, just to everybody out there, it's misinformation, that ELVIS is going to be on streaming services this Summer. That's not gonna happen. I can tell you right now, that it won't certainly be until the Fall. And I'll also tell you, that every week that ELVIS stays in the theater, I'm going to be releasing special unseen materials, because ELVIS deserves to be seen in the theater."

He doesn’t mention HBO Max at all….just “streaming”, and does state that the movie deserves to be seen in the theater". Yet now we have various digital platforms offering the movie to stream, albeit having to pay for it. But is pay to stream different to just streaming under a monthly subscription? Doesn’t streaming refer to the delivery method of content - transmitting or receiving video and audio material over a computer network as a steady, continuous flow, allowing playback to start while the rest of the data is still being received, regardless of whether you pay for it separately at the time or the material is included within a monthly subscription.

And the movie is in it’s 7th week in the theaters, but haven’t seen the special unseen materials. So is he lying , or is it an embellishment of the truth.

I can tell you right now, that it won't certainly be until the Fall. And I'll also tell you, that every week that ELVIS stays in the theater, I'm going to be releasing special unseen materials, because ELVIS deserves to be seen in the theater."

He doesn’t mention HBO Max at all….just “streaming”, and does state that the movie deserves to be seen in the theater". Yet now we have various digital platforms offering the movie to stream, albeit having to pay for it. But is pay to stream different to just streaming under a monthly subscription? Doesn’t streaming refer to the delivery method of content - transmitting or receiving video and audio material over a computer network as a steady, continuous flow, allowing playback to start while the rest of the data is still being received, regardless of whether you pay for it separately at the time or the material is included within a monthly subscription.

And the movie is in it’s 7th week in the theaters, but haven’t seen the special unseen materials. So is he lying , or is it an embellishment of the truth.
I think it's pretty clear that streaming is the method of delivery, whether "free" from something like the BBC iPlayer, through a subscription such as Netflix, or pay per view as with Elvis on Amazon video. I have never heard anyone dispute that all three are streaming - and I doubt I ever will outside of certain people on this increasingly-bizarre forum.


Accused of being "a nerd in his 20s." I wish.
