Netflix’s ‘Roma’ Makes Estimated $200K In 5-day Thanksgiving Opening

 
57th New York locations, and Manhattan's IFC Center, and all in, Deadline industry sources say that the 5-day gross is an estimated $200K which works out to be $66,6K a screen. Netflix isn't reporting weekend grosses for Alfonso Cuarón's Roma, but we've been hearing since Wednesday about sell-out shows at the Landmark's Pico Blvd Los Angeles and W.
Prior to this awards season, Netflix would typically play its big streaming movies exclusively at the luxury iPic Theater chain. with a $91K over two weeks. Netflix boss Ted Sarandos told Deadline that in the pic's first 10-days of streaming, 3M people watched Beasts of No Nation. Back in October 2015, with the help of Bleecker Street, Netflix opened Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation at 31 theaters on the same day the pic was available on the streaming service. Beasts tanked at the B.O.
 ” />
 
That's very good for a foreign film, and though apples-to-oranges in comparisons, that take is higher than the 3-day opening screen averages of such subtitled fare as Ang Lee's Lust, Caution ($63,9K) and South Korea's Battleship Island from CJ ($59,3K) (which both opened on one screen) and Walter Salles' The Motorcycle Diaries ($53,2K average at three sites ) and Pedro Almodovar's Talk to Her ($52,1K average at two), all of which are some of the best foreign film launches.
Fox Searchlight's The Favourite scored the best opening screen average of the year at $105K off four New York and Los Angeles theaters this weekend or $420K, but we are hearing that was padded by early shows on Wednesday and Thursday.
Given how great the weekend result was for Roma, the mind boggles why Netflix just doesn't report an official number: The National Association of Theater Owners recently flogged the streaming giant in the press for their decision to go with what they called "token releases", and urged them to do more in regards to pushing more product on the big screen. Note, Netflix has been publicly bullish about the power of streaming over exhibition in the past, however, it's proper to acknowledge that they're trying to give some justice to an auteur's theatrical release (even if it's for Oscar-qualifying purposes) and providing an opportunity for the film to be seen on the big screen. Cuaron was seeking a theatrical release for Roma and Netflix gave him one in advance of the pic's streaming date, in addition to other titles this awards season including  Joel & Ethan Coen's The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and the Sandra Bullock film Bird Box.
Alfonso Cuarón recently lamented on Twitter about the small number of Mexican cinemas showing Roma, and that's due to the country’s leading exhibitor Cinépolis having a beef with Netflix over the movie's collapsed theatrical window. Roma is Mexico's submission to the Oscar's this year in the foreign film category.
The movie will be released globally on Netflix on Dec. 5. 14 with an expanded theatrical release in the U.S. cities, Toronto and London with a further roll out on Dec. On Thursday, Roma will further expand to additional U.S. In total, the film will be theatrically released in over 30 countries globally with 70mm presentations also being planned during the film’s theatrical release. and international markets.

Peter Bart: Novels New And Old Booking Hollywood Gigs Thanks To Streamers And ‘Crazy Rich Asians’

All of this is good news for novice novelists – even several stars and filmmakers have tried their hands at fiction this year (Tom Hanks, James Franco and Guillermo del Toro included). It’s also relevant to those select companies like Random House Studio that develop scripted television by connecting published fiction to the fast-changing Hollywood universe.
Hollywood’s appetite in genre and style has broadened in recent times, according to Peter Gethers, an accomplished book editor who is also EVP and general manager of Random House Studio, which is backed by Fremantle and Bertelsmann. The company has sold scripted projects to HBO, TNT and Showtime among others, along with three studio feature films.
From the point of view of Gethers, who also is the author of 12 novels, this moment in the media business holds out great opportunity for writers who may have struggled in a previous era. “Genre books ranging from The Thin Man to Maltese Falcon have always been ideal grist for films,” he points out. There’s room to fully develop characters and themes; the TV translation of the book doesn’t have to be crammed into two hours.” “The big difference today is that genre categories have shifted to TV, which eats up so much material that there’s opportunity for non-bestselling books.
The surprise hit also points up Hollywood’s growing dependency on what some considered an arcane genre — the novel. Warner Bros was quick to announce that Kevin Kwan’s Rich novels will provide the basis for a new franchise (this was the studio obsessed with DC comics). Meanwhile, television producers and development executives are intensely competing for the rights to other once-obscure novels, having realized they lend themselves ideally to longer formats and to other streamer product.
Many of today’s "hot" filmmakers, of course, still rely on original material as the basis for their projects. The story of Roma was the creation of Alfonso Cuarón, while A Star Is Born, now in its fourth iteration, is credited to an original 1937 story by director William Wellman and three writers, one of whom was the legendary critic Dorothy Parker.
The classic example was Love Story by Erich Segal; Paramount bought the script, then paid the author to novelize it. The studio also spent heavily on marketing the novel, with the promotional materials avoiding mention that the project originated as a script — a revelation that would have blemished its legitimacy. In a few famously reverse cases, however, the writing of the novels themselves was actually funded by studios for the purpose of translating them into films. In the eyes of the literary establishment, it’s acceptable to film a novel, but not to manufacture one.” />
Neither were runaway bestsellers but still found ready buyers. In concert with Original Productions, Random House Studio has also moved aggressively into the documentary business. Currently in development there as feature material are such novels as Social Creature by Tara Burton, a thriller about an ambitious career woman who winds up committing murder (it’s at Lionsgate); and Longbourn by Jo Baker, a Jane Austen-mode period piece set up at StudioCanal. A Brazilian writer, Coelho’s books have sold more than 260 million copies, but The Alchemist, his best-known title, has proven difficult to translate because of its ethereal story line. Random House Studio under Gethers also has optioned several books by Paulo Coelho as potential one-hour TV series.
With Crazy Rich Asians closing on $200 million at the worldwide box office, its success continues to puncture several myths: that spandex heroes own the summer, that rom-coms can’t be cross-cultural, and that comics must provide the sole source material for franchises.
Hollywood has always had its eye on revered literary titles, of course – witness The Great Gatsby, which was made (badly) four times. Movies based on Lord of the Rings and Gone with the Wind were giant hits, but some of Hollywood’s best movies stemmed from non bestsellers, such as Midnight Cowboy and In the Heat of the Night.
