Ok, I know Xiayun and A4J are not really trying to manipulate the price, but with two heavy hitters both announcing gross, in the '50s

Can anyone really hold long on prome?  It'd be like swimming against a water fall.

I would not put much weight on the relative strength of PROME's international start comparing to SWHTM's   xiayun on Jun 03, 20:22

I can rest easy now. Thanks for your analysis, as always. {nm}   Tanker on Jun 03, 20:32

For a sub-$50M start that would normally mean that Saturday's gross would drop from Friday's, as well as a muted Friday start, wouldn't it? {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Jun 03, 21:09

A Fri-to-Sat drop is very likely given the release date, R-rating, and the sci-fi genre; District 9 dropped 10.9% even with its great WOM   xiayun on Jun 03, 21:27

Wow, I hadn't really taken that into consideration before. It is entirely possible that it could go sub-$50M.   accountant_4_Jesus on Jun 03, 21:43

If I were trying to make a case for a 70M opening...   second gary on Jun 03, 21:31

second gary, I'm with you. Might even say 80+ {nm}   Ryan_Stewart on Jun 03, 21:52

I'm saying there is limited evidence for a 70M opening, and there are real problems in arguing for 70M. I am still...   second gary on Jun 04, 07:00

Whoever is Ryan Stewart? Also, PROME is no Star Trek. That one had likeable, youthful characters. PROME is a mess, closer to a turd, and not {nm}   Facto on Jun 03, 21:58

in the least good-spirited. That Lost writer is nothing like JJ Abrams - no, he's a joke, someone who should've never been hired. Sadly. {nm}   Facto on Jun 03, 22:03

Who should they have hired? You? Did I miss something or are there a bunch of working studio heads on this site? {nm}   Ryan_Stewart on Jun 03, 22:08

They could have hired someone with actual skills, instead of this irreverent hipster punk (who is hyper-active on twitter). Poor choice. {nm}   Facto on Jun 03, 22:30

We will see Friday night, as always. {nm}   Ryan_Stewart on Jun 03, 21:56

Heh, people consider me a "heavy hitter"? That's news to me... :P {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Jun 04, 07:43

You take the time to make evidence-based arguments, which...   second gary on Jun 04, 08:12

Thanks, I appreciate that. I wondered where all those cakes were going to... And no, I'm not sure I'd endorse the hitting part either. :P {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Jun 04, 08:17

Don't get a swelled head, it's just a figure of speech. ;-) {nm}   elchan on Jun 04, 08:18

Depending on who you talk to, my head can't get any more swollen :P {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Jun 04, 08:22
