Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Yeah, I don't think AE is going to do particularly well. The trailer didn't look very good, and I think last I read the tracking was at about 30m?!

Will Smith should do Sci Fi, not nepotism...

Speaking of After Earth in the ads Will Smith's voice sounds really weird. It barely sounds like him at all.

Seen it twice so far, once in 3D, once in 2D. I'll probably go again before it is out of theatres. a) because I enjoy it, and b) because I want this movie and franchise to do as well as possible

Star Trek has IMAX until Man of Steel so that will soften the drops for a while, ST09 only had IMAX for 2 weeks.
After Earth opens May 31 and is in IMAX.
It will be in select IMAX theatres - go to the IMAX website and put in your zip code to find out if it is.
http://www.imax.com/

So in some areas it will push STiD out. Also, Fast & Furious 6 will be in select IMAX as well.
(not mine...for both movies )

BTC currently has it tracking at $40 million, and Now You See Me, which opens on the same weekend, at $18 million.

Boxoffice Guru:

Pre-opening Hangover3 does $3.1M from WED late shows starting at 10p. Far cry from Hangover2's $10.4M WED midnights on same night. Down 70% vs H2 from 2 yrs ago

I believe that we have no need to fear Hangover3 and After Earth.
STID breaks $100M today 1 wk after IMAX bow.

From a guy on hsx.com forum.

Early Sales Report and Trends for Memorial Day Weekend at my theater chain - FAST6, HNOV3, EPIC, TREK2


Posted by: nilephelan on May 23, 07:27

Here is what our early ticket sales look like for Thurs-Mon across our markets.....

FAST6 - Very, very strong with multiple weekend showings already sold out

HNOV3 - Sales are weak. Didn't come close to selling out the 10pm's last night in a smaller house. Not looking good.

EPIC - Fairly normal, usually don't see a huge bump until the day of the show.

TREK2 - Selling nearly as well as FAST6. Looks like it could have a big weekend. Legs have been strong all week for this one.



Gatsby is also holding very well while Iron Man 3 is non-existent for early sales, but that isn't surprising given Gatsby is a date movie and Iron Man 3 has been out 4 weekends now and sales for those movies aren't strong until day of.

Overall, it is looking like this could be a record setting weekend for us. So much better than last year.
Again, pinch of salt required but perhaps some cautious optimism ?

Fantastic for a Wed. With TH2 looking bad, looks like STID will have some legs.

The movie will make back its stated production cost by Friday. Pretty good.

Not that it actually cost that much, of course.
