I think it will break 40 and hit 50's, this film has a big fanbase to pull from. Kicking myself for weeks not having it in my top 5 picks. {nm}

Posted by: tatoufan on Aug 14, 08:12 in response to RogerMore's post It would have to be ridiculously front-loaded - like...

SOCMP - $4.96m Previews Thursday RollingThunder Aug 14, 06:52

This is better than Mad Max Fury Road ($3.7m), Pitch Perfect 2 ($4.3m) and right up there with American Sniper ($5.3m) {nm} nilephelan Aug 14, 07:06

Not sure that I see a great comp in RogerMore's database. PTCP2 was 4.6 (69.2 OW), GSOUL was 0.37 (13.1 OW), TLAM2 1.8 (29.2 OW). second gary Aug 14, 07:06

so you are saying that you're Straight Outta Comps? {nm} islander Aug 14, 07:32

Well. . . yes. . . I mean no. . . I mean. . . I dunno. {nm} second gary Aug 14, 08:32

Ride Along was 1.1 million, not sure what "42" did for its Thursday show. {nm} notfabio Aug 14, 07:58

It's Takes a Nation of Millions to Open This Flick? {nm} tawdryhepburn Aug 14, 10:51

Ant-man did 6.4 and 57 while MI5 did 4.0 and 55. Basically that means 56 is guaranteed for this right? {nm} MattW Aug 14, 07:39

Compton will be really frontloaded but can't see less than $50m for it with that number. Looks like there are already sellouts in my area. {nm} RollingThunder Aug 14, 07:41

So lobo or karspov (the one that made the bet about at least 40m OW) is safe?? :) {nm} alfjox Aug 14, 07:49

It would have to be ridiculously front-loaded - like TFIOS front-loaded - not to hit $40M. {nm} RogerMore Aug 14, 08:01

Somehow, I don't see teenage boys rushing to the movie with a copy of the album in their hands¡ Hahaha {nm} alfjox Aug 14, 08:45

The adults might ;-) {nm} tatoufan Aug 14, 10:21

if it's as engaging as I'm hearing, it might be a multiple viewing movie. {nm} miss amanda jones Aug 14, 08:04

Always with the frontloaded with you? Why would this be really frontloaded? {nm} Dorfman Aug 14, 11:11

Not if ANTMN is the comparison. {nm} RogerMore Aug 14, 07:50

Eh, I ruined the joke. Should have said exactly 56 {nm} MattW Aug 14, 08:36

Does anyone know how many screens SOCMP was on last night versus this weekend? bennyg1985 Aug 14, 08:17

From DL: 2,264 theaters for the previews, 2,751 theaters today {nm} warcraft86 Aug 14, 08:31

KA-FREAKING-BOOM! {nm} lobogotti Aug 14, 08:23

and I flat guarantee this isn't overly frontloaded. my local theater is already selling out shows this evening. {nm} lobogotti Aug 14, 08:27

I'm glad you placed your marker on SOCMP and not FANT4. :) {nm} second gary Aug 14, 08:38

I knew fantastic was going to hell, the opening weekend just didn't go low enough to net me the 15 points on EAP {nm} karspov Aug 14, 08:41

and well deserved my man {nm} lobogotti Aug 14, 10:32

;) {nm} lobogotti Aug 14, 10:31

If anything, this will have great legs with no competition the next few weeks and appeals to older demographic. {nm} nilephelan Aug 14, 09:09

agree nile. I know that you had said you were high on this early on. I didn't know that until you commented, but good call on your part {nm} lobogotti Aug 14, 10:32

wow almost 5 mil {nm} Dorfman Aug 14, 11:10
