EXCLUSIVE: Assets are announcing that the aorta of the weekend field place of work, Comscore’s Rentrak device, is down Friday. Speak about dangerous timing, coming at the opening day of Warner Bros’ The Batman. However I pay attention Comscore is feverishly operating arduous to get the device again up quickly this afternoon.
I’m instructed that there used to be an unplanned outage within the webhosting facility the place the server is living. There’s been wild rumors available in the market that there used to be a hearth within the Portland, OR, places of work — that isn’t the case.
Comscore’s Rentrak portal is the crossroads of the field place of work: It’s the place theaters’ level of gross sales are in an instant funneled, and it’s what the studios use to make projections, drill down on person markets and time table theatrical releases. Not anything diabolical right here within the outage right here, I perceive.
Comscore equipped no remark.
The Batman racked up $21.6 million in its first 3 days of previews and scored 4 1/2 stars on Comscore’s target market survey PostTrak. The Matt Reeves-directed film is poised to gross well past $100 million this weekend.
We’ll replace you when Rentrak is again on-line.
