Whisper Numbers: The Empty Man to live up to its name

New York is finally allowing theaters to reopen in the state, except for New York City. However, studios are still not putting their best films forward to bring back moviegoers. With little competition, Honest Thief [HNSTF] could hold 60% in its second weekend and take in another $2.2 million, which may be enough to retain the top of the box office.

The Empty Man [EMPTY] is one of the Fox acqusition titles Disney is contractually obligated to release in theaters. Apparently, marketing and advertising are not required as nothing was revealed about the R-rated horror until the trailer was released 6 days ago. The Empty Man may pick up $2 million from 2027 mostly empty theaters.

The War with Grandpa [WARGP] looks to repeat its 69% sophomore hold for a third weekend around $1.7 million.

That’s the whisper from the virtual trading floor.
