It appears that's not what people want. This one looks to finish behind both Sandler's movie and the second week of Despicable Me 2.
It seems to me that you didn't like people calling it for Star Trek after one weekend yet you do the same thing to Pacific Rim after 2-3 days? There seems to be a lot of "Its the end of the first quarter . . . so who won the game?" mentality on this board. Personally, I think the fact that this movie will appeal to teenagers means this could have enough legs to exceed $120-130 million domestically and 2 1/2 to 3 times that internationally.
I personally think Grown Ups two has burned through its goodwill and that movie will virtually dissapear in the next two weeks while PR will get repeat and word of mouth viewers. Seriously . . . who would sit through Grown Ups two twice?
