The examples others have mentioned (Blair Witch, Grudge) give me pause; Ring 2 opened to $35m

Posted by: xiayun on Oct 17, 18:48 in response to secretstalker's post You don't think a sequel to a movie that grossed $107...

but that followed a film with one of the best legs ever for the horror genre, and the performance was generally considered disappointing too with expectations in the $50m opening range.  That would be the absolute best case scenario for PA2, but I don't see the original having that good of WOM for the sequel to come close to the number.

 

RS: [PNAC2] high 20s, [HAFTR] high single digits   secretstalker on Oct 17, 16:31

Feel it's a little high on PNAC2, while a little low on HAFTR, although the latter is definitely not breaking out {nm}   xiayun on Oct 17, 16:45

PNAC2 definetly has the potential to be huge again. {nm}   gogreen on Oct 17, 17:06

So far advance sales have been soft, but the trailer does get good reaction {nm}   notfabio on Oct 17, 17:47

You don't think a sequel to a movie that grossed $107 million can do at least $30 million opening weekend in a wide release?   secretstalker on Oct 17, 17:45

Blair Witch 2! {nm}   mickpix on Oct 17, 17:48

Except PNAC2 is coming out only a year later and it uses the same conventions as the original    secretstalker on Oct 17, 18:13

Ring 2 was hampered over a film terms issue with at least one major theatre chain (same as The Island) that booked far less prints/late show {nm}   notfabio on Oct 17, 19:38

I agree, the dvd sold extremely well for a high box office horror film. lots of upside in the sequel {nm}   Moviesnob on Oct 17, 19:04

Sounds about right to me... {nm}   Port Value League Admin on Oct 17, 16:46

Thanks !   joeoftexas on Oct 17, 16:57

I know saw 6 made only 14.1 on opening weekend, though we may see an upsight tick with the final installment {nm}   karspov on Oct 17, 17:08
