little primary research of checking some theaters, it has sold a lot more tickets so far than Men in Black or Battleship at this juncture.  Clearly not a break out mega hit but doesn't look like a bust either from this vantage point.  I was thinking $65MM when I saw the presales yesterday...now I'm thinking more like $50MM as I do give a lot of credence to the twitter #'s as a data point.

so.... mtc 43 and RS mid 60s... What does that mean?? {nm}   gardavou on May 29, 13:17

Yeah, sticking with my $40-50m feeling {nm}   xiayun on May 29, 13:19

Had a feeling. Getting the impression this might barely top Battleship numbers at this point, but we'll see. {nm}   ShawnMR on May 29, 13:21

The Twitter index is the most concerning part IMO, only 3378 tweets on Monday for a film that should have big ratio   xiayun on May 29, 13:24

Agreed. I'm not impressed with its Twitter performance at all either, especially considering it has Twitter/Twilight darling Stewart.   ShawnMR on May 29, 13:32

I'd expect more robust advance sales given the demo; the key would be how much walk-up business it gets and how frontloaded to Fri it may be {nm}   xiayun on May 29, 14:03

b/C of Kristin Stewart? {nm}   GMov on May 29, 14:17

b/c the young female-oriented demo it's targeting; at least that's the demo I feel it's mainly targeting   xiayun on May 29, 14:58

I'll also add that I still believe women are holding out for Rock of Ages. Surprised its trading so low. {nm}   ShawnMR on May 29, 13:39

Demographic for Rock of Ages would seem to be a bit older than that of Show White. {nm}   Abraxas on May 29, 13:52

I haven't figured out who this movie is aimed at. {nm}   forlorne on May 29, 14:03

If the movie is anything like the musical (which I saw and loved), then the marketing has been way off.   HurricaneKid on May 29, 16:42

Both are striving to appeal to 20-something women. Competition for the male audience between the two might even be closer than meets the eye   ShawnMR on May 29, 14:06

Get the feeling that what???? No one. AND I MEAN NO ONE is holding out for that trash. {nm}   lhayes37 on May 29, 13:57

Agreed. Will give Adam sandler good competition in the Razzies {nm}   thatpj on May 29, 20:22

Tagging MTC: [SWHTM] 43; [CRIST] 1 {nm}   Paul2k on May 29, 13:37

That's disappointing {nm}   thatpj on May 29, 19:35
