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.
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.
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".
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. Tagging users to argue about their opinions is also not allowed.
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 if they seem to be of dubious accuracy.
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.
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.
If a movie was released in the domestic market less than a month ago, tag all spoilers. Posting uptagged spoilers may result in a temp ban.
Don't post a link to promote your website, blog or YouTube channel/videos
These posts need to include a "Throwback Tuesday" flair. This includes films released "on this date" in a previous year (we experimented with allowing such posts any day of the week but people didn't self-regulate). To avoid questions about the time, posts can start to appear at 12:00 a.m. EST on Tuesdays, until 11:59 p.m. EST. Anything posted before or after this time period will be removed. Movies have to be released in a period of 5 years - 1/5/10/15/20/25... years ago.
We don't want to promote piracy nor illegal streaming. Any violation of this rule will result in a ban for the user.
Posts about daily box office updates will be allowed if the movie at hand is grossing at least ~$500K daily at the box office.
Posts about daily box office updates for movies grossing below ~$500K will be allowed up to ~2 weeks of the movie's release date in the domestic market.
Exceptions will be made for certain milestones (e.g. passing $100M).
Weekend posts will be allowed, even if a movie doesn't meet the ~$500K threshold for its weekend gross.
