☀️M3GAN blows away tracking, Box Office +67% vs. 2022 opening
AMAZON TNF misses 2022 projections badly / PEACOCK OP pulled in some Euro markets? / AMC Networks cut more series
Mornin! This is Sean McNulty (connect with me on LinkedIn here if ya like), and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on MONDAY January 9, 2023.
Where the Golden Globes certainly got a fair share of promo time in the NBC NFL Ad breaks last night, for what was likely a highly-viewed Sunday Night Football game (granted, the venn diagram there of audience interests is probably not too large).
But - a tight game down to the wire is always good for the Ad breaks, even if my mom is probably a little bummed the PACKERS totally (and literally) dropped the ball and are done-fer this season.
ALSO: The NATIONAL SOCIETY OF FILM CRITICS gave Best Pic nod to “TAR” (and actress nod to Cate Blanchett, adding to her NY & LA Film Critics nods). Colin Farrell got the Actor award.
PLUS: Congrats to The Wakeup Friday Box Office Poll crew 🥳 as 52% of you called a “M3GAN” opening over $22 Million.
