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

STID has a good chance at being #4 this weekend, nipping at the heels of After 'Erff' and "The Prestige and Ocean's Eleven in a blender".

The Hangover Part III (3,565 theaters) which on only its second weekend already is lagging Paramount’s Star Trek Into Darkness (3,585 theaters) which has been in release a week longer. The weekend numbers are looking like $12M-$13M vs $15M-$16M.
not really good hope it jumps a bit.
Very early days yet and she is often wrong. If we get to 5m on the Friday it will make it to 18m for the weekend. 5m is the magic number... Whereas 4m will only get us to 15-16m like Nikki at deadline.com says.

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

After Earth has MNS's name to the film. I think that name would be enough to force some to be hesitant to see the film, considering the reputation that his films have acquired. I think the more serious competitors are "Furious 6" and "Hangover 3".

I saw F6 today. I liked the film very much, and plan to see it again soon. It was a simple film about family and cars.

As I was parsing deadline.com, I read a mention to R.I.P.D. I saw the trailer for this film. It has one of my favorite actors, Jeff Bridges, so I am already halfway there to seeing the film.

I started watching Fast Five on TV today to see what all the fuss is about and it's definitely not for me :|

I think that's going to be one of the big flops of the summer.

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

Contributed $9.50 to a matinee 3D showing at the theater--about 10 folks at the 11.45 showing. My 3rd viewing, and I enjoyed it as much as the first two, if not more, with an appreciation of how well it held together overall. Although I did lament the lack of dialogue during the final Spock-'Harrison' fight sequence... could've been just a bit more to not have him merely be a mustache-twirling foe at the end.

Not only that, After Earth is reviewing extremely badly so far: 13% on Rotten Tomatoes at the moment

Sorry, but that movie looks like a bad Men in Black ripoff to me.

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

I was reading the news about After Earth. Related to what I said above, according to one article,

Still, Sony Pictures clearly wants this to be a hit—so much so that the studio has shrewdly hidden the film’s director, the critic-dividing M. Night Shyamalan, from almost all its marketing. The strategy, of course, is so that moviegoers who scoff at the director’s embarrassing track record from the past decade (The Last Airbender, The Lady in the Water, The Village) wouldn’t be scared away from this film. After Earth may not belong in the dungeon with those disasters, but the director’s baggage certainly hasn’t done Smith any favors here.

Why did they hire Shyamalan in the first place?

Well, at the 7:20pm showing tonight it was packed... I got there even before the previews and had to sit in the handicapped section - there were no other seats except for 3 at the very front.

Shyamalan as director is the least of its problems. The movie is a veiled love letter to Scientology, which is bound to turn away viewers. Then Will Smith felt it wise to hang the entire movie on his son's shoulders.

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

I saw STID for a third time today, and my theatre was about half full. Lots of laughter at the jokes, I think there were a few fans there. Reactions to the Khan reveal, the mention of Christine Chapel, etc, so I suspect so.

If the movie makes mega bucks in China and Korea, that's fantastic news. Maybe, just maybe, half a billion total worldwide is back on the table? I hope so
