How were these "early estimates" so far off?

Posted by: jmbenesh on Mar 23, 14:29 in response to Kiknsupra2's post HGAME

With various news outlets reporting anywhere from $25-30M from midnight showings, how did they wind up so far off from the $19.75M that [HGAME] actually took in?

[HGAME] Variety: 'Games' on with early midnight returns at $25 mil   m051293 on Mar 23, 01:38

More bullish estimates peg midnight grosses at $30 million {nm}   m051293 on Mar 23, 01:41

That's still within my prediction so far... {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Mar 23, 07:41

Friday business and Saturday hold/drop are key here. Hunch is that this will be far less frontloaded than Potter/Twilight.    m051293 on Mar 23, 07:46
