Whisper Numbers: A trio of newcomers sights up Iron Man 2.



While the Marvel superhero sequel did not set any box office records, Iron Man 2 [IRNM2] still soared with a $128 million debut.  Although the sequel scored well with moviegoers, most didn’t think it was better than the first Iron Man.  Even if Iron Man 2 decline around 50%, the Paramount release should easily lock up first place with approximately $62 million. 

Russell Crowe [RCROW] teamed up with director Ridley Scott [RSCOT] for the fifth time on yet another retelling of Robin Hood [RBNHD].  The period actioner cost a reportedly $230 million, not to mention the jobs of the studio heads at Universal.  Today’s young moviegoers have shown little interest in the PG-13 rated historical epic, appealing only to the older male demographic.  Taking aim in 3505 theaters, Robin Hood may hit a target around $37 million.

Amanda Seyfried [ASEYF] looks to carry a film on her own for the first time with Summit’s Letters to Juliet [LJULT].  The PG-rated breezy romance set mostly in Italy should bring out plenty of tween girls, as well as their mothers and grandmothers who may connect with the storyline involving Vanessa Redgrave [VREDG]. Opening in 2968 theaters, Letters to Juliet could deliver $18 million. 

Ex-rappers Queen Latifah [QLATI] and Common [COMMN] paired up for the basketball-themed romance Just Wright [JUSTW].  Fox Searchlight has smartly released the PG-rated film in the heart of the NBA playoffs with its cross-promotional opportunities. Appealing primarily to the urban audience, Just Wright may score $9 million from 1803 locations.

That’s the whisper from the trading floor.
