Actually the unofficial formula for UK to US box office was pretty spot on this time.

Posted by: RufusS on May 20, 06:43 in response to Oleg Max's post UK and Australian comps proved useless in this case?

US opening BO in $ = 10x UK opening BO in £ (which was £8.4m).

It is still a rough guide though but works okay for Hollywood movies, as opposed to British films. 

F&F6 made £8.6 millions this weekend so we'll see if it opens to $86m in the US.

TREK1 IM was useless too. TREK2 had a 3.2IM. ;) {nm}   Antibody on May 19, 11:35

yeah, you were correct on Star Wars comps for the IM... but once Fri # came out, it was a done deal... {nm}   Oleg Max on May 19, 11:41

fwiw, I made that particular post on Friday after Thu #s ands before Fri #s. {nm}   Antibody on May 19, 11:48

i remember. good call. {nm}   Oleg Max on May 19, 11:52

Yep, STAR2 especially was a good find indicating 3+ might be possible. We'll see the exact IM after the finals tomorrow. {nm}   KalElFan on May 19, 14:26
