I could be way off (wouldn't be the first time), but I think Riddick is going to have a tough time branching out and scoring a big first weekend gross. How much drawing power does Diesel have? And who, outside of Pitch Black fans, really wants to see it? Does it really have wide appeal? I'm not so sure that it does. This probably looked like a sure thing to Universal back when they gave Twohy the go ahead. I bet they're sweating it now.

1) Harry Potter - $57 million
2) The Chronicles of Riddick - $22.5 million
3) Shrek 2 - $21 million
4) Garfield - $17 million
5) The Stepford Wives - $16.5 million
6) The Day After Tomorrow - $12.5 million

Harry Potter will still be tops, follwed closely by Riddick. I think many of you are putting Stepford Wives too high. I don't see it making more than $20 mil.

I agree. I don't sense much interest in The Stepford Wives. I am extremely anxious to see what Riddick's opening is. Chud claims that the budget ended up being in the $200 million area. I really think it's facing an uphill battle.

I wouldn't have thought Stepford had much wide appeal either, however I work at a movie theater, and I rip tickets right by a big Stepford standee and about 3 out of every 4 people when they walk by comment "I really want to see that", young and old, and men and women. Very surprising to me, especially considering the shitty promos. I predict opening of 18-25

Also, im 18 and with most of my friends being big action fans, not ONE of them wants to see Riddick. I know plenty internet geeks are very excited for it, however, it doesnt have very wide appeal (the title itself is a big hurdle), and having seen it and given the lack of excitement for it, i would be absolutely shocked if its final gross is north of 50 million. Honestly, when was the last time an extremely complicated talky sci-fi picture with an unproven-on-his-own star did well? (XXX doesnt count-- he was coming right off of Fast and Furious, which did well because Americans love them fast cars-- everything since of his has bombed). I predict an opening of around 15 million.

As for Garfield, with Shrek and HP3 still doing gangbuster business distracting the kids, awful trailers, and ZERO adult appeal, I think this will be another Rocky and Bullwinkle. Opening under 10 million.

Many kids in my area want to see Saved!, however I understand in most parts of the country people arent able to laugh at such a "serious" subject as religion, so with a modest amount of theaters and some strong commercials, ill be bold and say about 5 million (by the way it's definitely worth seeing-- pretty greeat movie)

Oh yeah, on another note, did anyone else know there's a sneak preview of the Terminal tonight!??! I just found out-- I'm DEFINITELY going

i dont think the terminal will make more than 20 milion. It looks to non-mainstream to be so mainstream. Although Tom Hanks can usually draw a big crowd I don't think audiences are feeling this one, some might even look at the less than stellar opening of The Ladykillers as well.

The Ladykillers only had Hanks, but this has Hanks and Spielberg, who are definitely a potent draw put together.

Yeah, too many new movies coming out.

1) White Chicks-$15.3 million (3-Day); $24.2 million (5-Day); Week 1
2) The Notebook-$14.7 million; Week 1
3) DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story-$14.1 million; -53%; Week 2
4) Fahrenheit 9/11-$12.5 million (3-Day); $12.6 million (5-Day); Week 1
5) The Terminal-$11.5 million; -39.5%; Week 2
6) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban-$10.6 million; -41.3%; Week 4
7) Shrek 2-$9.2 million; -34.2%; Week 6
8) Garfield: The Movie-$6.5 million; -42.8%; Week 3
9) Two Brothers-$6.2 million; Week 1
10) The Day After Tomorrow-$4.9 million; -39.2%; Week 5
11) The Chronicles of Riddick-$4.6 million; 50.7%; Week 3
12) The Stepford Wives-$4.2 million; -52%; Week 3
13) Around the World in 80 Days-$3.4 million; -54.8%; Week 2

Every uber-crowded weekend with four openers is going to have at least one stinker. This time I think it will be Two Brothers, with it's bland ad campaign and like four or five other family films in wide release. But isn't it a foreign flick or one not financed by Universal? If so, it can't flop too badly.

Fahrenheit 9/11 is going to be huge for a documentary and gross over $40 million, and maybe $50 million. Bet on it.

looks like they were way off , for the Friday numbers and for the weekend as a whole .


And it looks like it's per screen average is going to come up far short of Blair Witch's 63,000 per screen average in it's second weekend of release in 1999 . Forget about that , Blair made 57,000 per ( just north of 1 mil total ) on only 27 screens in it;s first week , or somethig like that , so it couldn't even beat that number . Hah Hah .



Also , there doesn't seem to be this groundswell of interest if the weekend numbers are an indication for F 8 , it kept on dropping each day . See what happens next weekend , because it may just be that mainly the diehard Dems and Bush Haters came out to see this .

“… it’s only the opening weekend rants”. That’s funny! We’re all guilty of it at some point.

F9/11 was big, but that’s a really good point about it’s boxoffice falling on Saturday, and then again on Sunday. Historically that isn’t a good sign for having long term “legs” (TPOTC, SHREK 2 and ROTK all had significant increases from Friday to Saturday, not drop-offs).

On the other hand, next weekend is a holiday weekend so everybody should have a strong holdover. SPIDERMAN 2 will kill obviously, but the demographic is totally different from F9/11. I think older crowds will continue to filter in for the Bush-bash for several weeks.

I see it topping-out at around $80 million. Which SPIDERMAN 2 will make in a few days.

It's funny how people see only what they want to see. Yes, it dropped from Friday to Saturday. So what? The opening weekend is unbelievable, whether you like it or not. It wouldn't matter if it fell 80% next weekend and made $30 million total. For the type of movie it is on the number of screens it's playing, it's fucking amazing. And it'll be on over 1,000 screens for the holiday weekend. It's not going away anytime soon.

F 9/11 did fantastic and even though I know quite a lot of it was obfuscation and mere propaganda some of it really made me look at my president in a new light. Some things just can't be denied , even if a lot of this is pure BS the stuff that isn't makes Bush look real bad and even worse , makes him look inept at times.

It's not going to fall hard next weekend. Bet the house on it.

One reason: expansion.

With such great numbers on so few theaters, there will be a big demand for it next weekend. Same for Spidey 2.

I'm thinking SM 2 will catch most of the F 21 demo , it's something that appeals to almost everyone , so it should be interesting to see what happens . I see SM 2 hitting 200 mil for the 5 day , i haven't run into anyone yet who doesn't want to see it , but who knows .

Have to see what Far does during the week to get an idea of what might happen with it next weekend .

Observing the crowd I saw F9/11 with, I find it hard to believe that many of them will be rushing out to see Spiderman 2. I don't think it will eat much if any of F9/11's business.

Come on guys / gals , 24 mil , it's not that big of a deal , why because it's a pseudo documentary ? I told you already , it's still did not come even close to what Blair did in 1999 , when ticket prices were cheaper . Think you're making a bigger deal out of these numbers than it warrants .

dd, you can't compare it to Blair Witch. Nothing like that had ever really happened before. It's a totally unrealistic and ridiculous comparison. You simply are unable to see past your hatred for the movie. You are just wrong here. The numbers are completely phenomenol, whether you like it or not.
