hmm maybe 500k opening weekend

it will be probably make 5 million in its entire run judging by Scott Pilgrim and Piranha 3D, good films sometimes just don't make money.
:/
plus I don't think Danny Trejo can carry a movie, sorry to say.

oh and Predators was awesome! It was a hit btw.

I gave it a little high, but I am hoping it does well. However, I do think that The American will beat it out, which comes out wednesday. Despite the many Rodriguez fans, Clooney just has too much power.

Piranha 3D showed what limited audience an exploitation throwback has. It'll be lucky to match the opening weekend of that film, around 10M.

No option for dollars rather than millions of dollars?

Machete - 9M$

I don't see how it can make more than 9M$ on opening weekend. I knew of the movie being made but I had no idea it's about to open this week and I have seen zero marketing for it. That's on top of the fact that it's a very particular kind of movie with a limited audience. I personally think it looks okay at best, but even then, I haven't seen much from the movie in terms of trailers, etc.

Predators was really good despite some people say. R-rated movies doesn't have too much luck at the box office since the matrix reloaded. That's it. Like DaForce said Rodriguez didn't direct the movie only produced it, so, puting predators in this discussion has no point. I read the first review of Machete in rotten tomatoes and said that it was a mess, but, let's be honest. What Rodriguez movie isn't a holly mess? that's the all point here. Only spy kids were his commercial movies. With

Only spy kids were his commercial movies. With machete, planet terror or sin city he wanted to make movies that people remember. Movies no one can copy in style even if they are overly exagerated. You love it or you hate it. This movie won't be a box office hit but im sure it will sell a lot of DVD's. You can bet it.

Rodriguez didn't direct Predators, he only produced it. Nimrod Antal was the director of Predators.

As long as Machete isn't as goofy as Planet Terror was, it should do okay.

I'm guessing around the same as Grindhouse, it'd be nice to see this make money but I can't see this appealing to the general audience.

Exploitation = no sale with pop culture

I hope for the best for this movie, and I want to see it succeed very much, but I'd have to agree with most people's comments here. The movie probably won't do that great financially in the theaters, but it will have it's niche amongst fans. I have a feeling this may be something along the lines of Fight Club or even The Big Lebowski. Poor financial turnout in the theaters, followed by cult classic money maker with DVD/BlueRay sales.

Grindhouse Money

What did Grindhouse make opening weekend? 11 mil? Probably about that. There's just not as much of a market for these exploitation throwbacks as there should be.

I say that because after what happened with grindhouse and predators this wont be very good for rodriguez plus the trailers look terrible and the film just looks like a crap studfent film with a bit of backing from some reject hollywood producer...I think i'll PASS!

It'll be barely in the top 10. Barely. It looks good, but only a certain audience will be interested in it.

Yeah, definitely a niche market. Ala Scott Pilgrim and Piranha 3D...it'll be received well, but won't be attended well.

I dont think it'll break 10 mil for 3 reasons:

1. Football

2. Fanboys seem to be the only people who have a desire to see it (see results of scott pilgrim)

Um Football...

Well as much as I would like to see this film do good, it won't.

College football season starts up Saturday, they will lose almost all of Saturday to it. but maybe they will make enough Friday and Sunday to pull about 15 mill.

Unfortunately, I think everyone here is right on the money about this one. It won't be a bomb or anything, but it'll do okay...maybe get some of that Sin City/Grindhouse crowd. What do you guys think...$50 million range when it's all said and done?

I really dont see this film doing well at all. i dont know anyone that really knows about it outside of people that surf movie websites. The outside world doesnt know much at all. I havent really seen that many tv spots to be honest. Its a shame the marketing for this was so poor it coudlve been a hit.

laboni sir, you have stated the fact of pop culture. Of course no one is quite familiar with this film, because it's not set up to be that way. It is not pop culture, but that doesn't mean it can't succeed. Unfortunately, the success won't come until the aftermath [link]

I'm going to go see the movie with my dad and am really anticipating it, but I don't see this film doing good at all. I think its going to tank as well

I bet it's going to tank just like Grindhouse did.
