And GETAW, I have to admit, I'm a sucker for these badass car chase flicks. I predict $12M. Somebody needs to market the hell out of this,

There's no reason why GETAW can't be another $20M+ opener for Ethan Hawke. That's just tragic that nobody's stepping up P&A for this--I mean, awareness is in the dumps for this movie. Wannasee stats are in the basement, man. The story is $hit but back in the late 90s, movies like this regularly drew a crowd. Movies then didn't have the level of marketing your average studio release has now. GETAW, bad as it is, doesn't deserve the low opening it's likely to get. The movies has some decent action sequences, people.

Me neither... Hardly breaking even... {nm}   Filmstardust on Aug 25, 13:11

Antibody, have a good vacation. You deserve it. Blew it big on BLUJM. Quite a bit off on URNEX too, but people got to see the movie. Good. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 25, 18:18

CTOFB I thought would do $15M by today, and so far off by a $M on that. WSEND got owned by BUTLR but then again,   eallensbp on Aug 25, 18:24

MOVING ON to this week's batch of releases. CLOSD, what the hell, I shouldn't even bother, 3-day looks like $hit. < $5M with some luck. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 25, 18:33

5-day CLOSD still singles unless Focus amps up marketing. I like ODCM as a juggernaut, it's gonna go to $18M. Maybe $20M by Labor Day. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 25, 18:37

Ummm... I'm not sure BUTLR's good hold & WSEND's lower though solid opening for anormative material have anything to do with each other. {nm}   second gary on Aug 25, 20:47

Thanks Dmac. Have a great vacation!! Can you not have someone cover for you? {nm}   grammar on Aug 25, 19:45

And with that, I think it's safe to say I'm a billionaire now.   salsashark1 on Aug 25, 21:57
