We spoke with a movie theater manager who asked for anonymity. He told us they had “exactly 25 no shows for every showing of Captain Marvel on Thursday through Saturday.”

The manager told us this was definitely abnormal, “It’s definitely not normal. People usually show up when they pay for tickets…I’m not sure what it is, we’ve seen big groups not show up before, but they get refunds.”

I asked whether or not these tickets were purchased in bulk, but that information isn’t available, “I’m not sure if they were bought all at once because Fandango doesn’t give us that information, but exactly 25 no shows for every show is probably statistically impossible.”

The manager would add, “I would say it’s someone trying to make the ticket sales look better than they really were.”

He would also indicate he saw significant drop offs in ticket sales from Sunday at his theater, “Sunday for Captain Marvel wasn’t good and Monday and Tuesday were terrible. They were like a 75% drop off from Sunday.”

Box Office Mojo reports Captain Marvel’s Sunday take was only $38.8 million at the domestic box office. A drop of over 26% from Saturday. On Monday, the decline was even worse. The film dropped nearly 72% bringing in less than $11 million putting its total gross at over $164 million so far.

Captain Marvel has been mired in controversy. One America News Network’s Jack Posobiec called for fans to avoid seeing Captain Marvel and instead see Alita: Battle Angel following Brie Larson’s comments insinuating she wanted less white men covering her on the press tour and reviewing the movie.

What do you make of these reports of empty theaters? Do you think people were trying to prop up Captain Marvel during its opening weekend?

It's desperate as hell. Most people don't obsess like this over stuff they dislike, not these haters though. They just keep finding more crap to fling and they keep on growing more obsessed.

Captain Marvel has a great Tuesday. Comparisons to the other top opening weekends in March.

Beauty and the Beast
opening: $174,750,616
Tuesday: $17,878,785

Batman v Superman
$166,007,347
$12,180,163

Captain Marvel
$153,433,423
$14,641,119

Hunger Games
$152,535,747
$10,348,198


The trolls are still claiming CM is doing bad. Also there's this too....

Among all MCU pics on a Tuesday, Captain Marvel is the fourth best after Avengers: Infinity War ($23.4M), Black Panther ($20.8M), and The Avengers ($17.6M).


Fourth best Tuesday for the entire MCU. And #2 when looking at just solo hero films.

I think you need to stop and take a look at what you're doing, TC. And I mean actually stop and have a bit of a think.

I think once you have to resort to posting conspiracy theories you lost.
