As if there weren’t any bigger problems in the world during a pandemic…but, yes, Warner Bros. and Sony are shielding their box office hourly figures from rival studios in Comscore on their respective releases Tenet and The Broken Hearts Gallery. We’ve known about this for a while, but it’s becoming a bigger deal now as the blackout was only expected to last a week for Warner Bros, and now it’s extended into a second weekend, with Sony joining in. Comscore is the data crossways between exhibitors and distributors. As movie theaters make their money each hour on titles, distributors and exhibitors can observe how a film is doing at the box office and project what it will make for the day or the weekend. Rival studios pull from this data, create their own internal top weekend industry box office chart twice a day (or more) on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and throughout the week, and share this with their top brass and filmmakers.
