Whisper Numbers: Wrath of Man leads off the summer movie season

The first weekend of May is normally the start of the summer blockbuster movie season. However, previously scheduled Black Widow bolted for July, leaving a void for MGM/UA to fill with Wrath of Man [VGLNC]. The R-rated actioner reunites Jason Statham with Guy Ritchie, the director who started his acting career in 1999’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. A remake of a French film, Wrath of Man should appeal to their older male fanbase. Ritchie’s last film The Gentlemen debuted just before the pandemic in January 2020 to $10.65 million from 2165 theaters. With newly reopened theaters starved for new content, Wrath of Man is booked in 2876 locations and could rake in $11 million.

Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train [DSMMT] and Mortal Kombat [MK3] will continue to duel for a third weekend with both likely to score around $3.2 million.

Last week’s lone wide opener Separation [SEPRT] is poised to tumble a horrific 55% to about $800K.

Sony drops dumps another one of its small movie, Here Today [HTODA], in theaters at the last moment. Billy Crystal directed the PG-13 rated comedy and stars with Tiffany Haddish. Playing in approximately 1000 theaters, Here Today may be gone tomorrow with $750K.

That’s the whisper from the virtual trading floor.
