Whisper Numbers: The Warrior’s Way about to get Tangled



Since the weekend after Thanksgiving is traditional one of the weakest for new wide openers, studios have stayed away except for one this year, Relativity with The Warrior’s Way [WRWAY].  Korean superstar Jang Dong-gun plays an ninja assassin fighting his ex-clan in the Old West.  The last Ninja Assassin starring a Korean superstar opened to $13.3 million last Thanksgiving for Warner Bros.  Relativity’s lower budgeted R-rated actioner may fight just to get into the top five.  Opening in 1622 theaters, The Warrior’s Way could wind up with around $5 million. 

After Tangled [RAPUN] came within $0.25 million of first place last weekend, Disney’s animated film should easily finish first in its second session.  A drop nearly 50% from its holiday-fueled opening would still result in $25 million.

After two weeks at the top, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 [HPOT7] looks to drop to second with around $17 million.  Megamind should finish third with another $6 million.

Between the two sophomore films targeted at women, Burlesque [BURSL] appears to suffer a greater decline than Love and Other Drugs [LVDRG] as they both should come in around $5 million.

That’s the whisper from the trading floor.
