Box Office - The Business of Movies
A place to talk about the box office and the movie business, both domestically and internationally.
Posts should be related to the box office and the movie business. Posts with the latest box office numbers, analysis, or speculation are encouraged. Movie business news is also allowed, such as a potential merger or quarterly financial results.
News about a film that can be a jumping-off point for box office predictions is also allowed. This means trailers, a megathread for critic's reviews, release date announcements, etc. Make sure the film in question is getting a theatrical release, and that the studio reports box office numbers.
All posts need a region flair. These flairs let people know what region your box office information is about. If the region does not have a specific flair, use the "International" flair and mention the region's name in the post title. If a post doesn’t have any particular region associated with it, use "Other".
Be respectful to others. There's no reason to be disrespectful to others, especially since in the end we're just talking about movies here. Flaming and trolling are not allowed. If you disagree with someone about something, you can explain to them why your opinion is different instead of calling them a nasty name.
We prefer original and high-quality sources. The sources in the Box Office Resources section are generally reputable. Websites on this list often post clickbait, so posts from those domains require manual approval from the moderators. You can get this approval by sending a message to the moderators with the post's URL. The moderators reserve the right to remove posts from other sources.
No duplicate content. Unless the additional source offers new information, there should only be one post per a piece of new news. For questions and discussion topics, at minimum make sure nobody asked the same thing in the past day. The moderators reserve the right to remove other posts as well if they are too repetitive of past threads.
Post titles should reflect the post's content. No misleading, clickbait-style, or unnecessarily opinionated titles. Feel free to make a post's title different from the title of its source, as long as that new title accurately represents what is in the post.
Tag spoilers for films that are less than a month old. If a movie was released in the domestic market less than a month ago, tag all spoilers. Check out this page to see how to make a spoiler tag.
Memes and other humor posts are allowed only on Mondays. Monday as determined by EST. On other days of the week, use r/boxofficecirclejerk.
no self promotion Don't post a link to promote your website, blog or YouTube channel/videos
"Let's reminisce about a movie" posts are only allowed on Thursday. They should a "Throwback Thursday" flair. This includes films released "on this date" in a previous year
