Barbershop suffered a drop of only 21.9% at the Box Office this last weekend and now has a total of just over 52 Million. With good reviews and great word of mouth its legs should stay strong for a little while yet. Its biggest competition will come from Brown Sugar which opens October 11th and also has a PG-13 rating.

I've been wondering for a little while now if it will be able to make it to 100 Million. And I think Barbershop does have a chance of reaching 100 Million but 80-90 Million seems more likely. 80-90 Million is still a great accomplishment though, especially for a movie titled Barbershop. And with a budget of only 12 Million, Barbershop is one of this falls sleeper hits.

Do you think it will make it to 100 Million?

It most likely won't. It will make it to the $80million plus mark maybe $90 million. But it will face some stiff competetion during the very busy month of October.

I agree, I think it'll get to $80-90 million, but $100 million is really pushing it, unless it keeps dropping only 20% each week.

Probably not. I also predict a finish of about 80-90 million. That is still very good for a comedy with a lower budget and will be good news for sagging MGM.

Not likely. So-called "black" movies usually open big but then drop quickly. The movie is holding up, but I think it's most likely do to the little controversy surrounding it.

Most likely no. But I do think it will finish close to that figure, let's say 80 to 90 million.

I don't think the really "little" controversy has anything to do with it, I think it's doing well because of the good reviews and word of mouth. I don't think that stupid little controversy going on has much to do with it at all. I know I wouldn't see a movie because of something that's not even a very big deal.

Okay, I worded it wrong. But, I'm sure some of it's business has to do with that, though.

I agree, though, I know I would never see a movie because of what was in the news about it.
