The number seems reasonable unless Tangled behaves like Enchanted (which is definitely possible)

Frankly, I'm amazed there was enough audience left to see Burlesque and I'm not so sure that will fare well over the weekend cause unlike Tangled, that movie sucks :)

Nikki #s (same link as below) [HPOT7] 14, [RAPUN] 10.5, [BURLS] 3, [FASTR] 1.7, [LVDRG] 2.5   secretstalker on Nov 25, 05:13

By the way, "Burlesque" was cost about $55 million to make (looked like the total US gross will be close to that number?) {nm}   Peterlee on Nov 25, 05:18

I wonder if "Rent" is a very rough comp for BURLS, suggesting a 5-day IM under 5? "Rent" had an IM under 4 (4.7 Wed / 17.5 OW). {nm}   second gary on Nov 25, 08:01

"Rent" has more adult appeal than BURLS {nm}   Peterlee on Nov 25, 08:14

RENT was, of course, a long-running play with many devoted fans, so I think that explains the frontloading. BURLESQUE not so, unless you   dsbman on Nov 25, 08:39

Aguilera also has many diehard fans {nm}   Peterlee on Nov 25, 09:08

Doubt it... as mentioned, Rent had frontloading from the fanbase going to see it Weds and realizing how bad it sucks.   secretstalker on Nov 25, 09:09

The movie Rent didn't have any stars. The succes/failure of this one will be Aguilera related {nm}   JMT on Nov 25, 10:21

and it seems to be a ( small ) long............. 4/4 for me yeeeeh ;-) {nm}   JMT on Nov 25, 13:07

Well, Burlesque looks just as bad as Rent did. {nm}   HarryWarden on Nov 25, 21:04

Megamind should be up from last weekend and my calcs come up with a same total as Nikki, roughly $136-7 million by Sunday.   secretstalker on Nov 25, 05:18

68m 5-day!?!?!?!?! OUCH! It burns!!!! IT BURNS! Why did I short a kids movie????   eyescovered on Nov 25, 05:37

Maybe families catch it first before they celebrate and catch up over the weekend?i need to see Fridays figure to believe the 68m estimate {nm}   karspov on Nov 25, 05:44

Yea, I know. It's still way to early to tell. Just having a little fun! {nm}   eyescovered on Nov 25, 05:45

I'll tell 10 people that Tangled sucks, and then those people tell 10 people, and then... problem solved ;) {nm}   eyescovered on Nov 25, 05:54

Stil, it may not be enough to make" Burlesque" profitable :p {nm}   Peterlee on Nov 25, 06:07

see that is when the new system will be helpful :) {nm}   b4bad on Nov 25, 06:09

Just on this, do we know how the system will work before long weekends like this one? {nm}   RogerMore on Nov 25, 10:08

I shorted it too! I feel like Rapunzel's hair: totally let down! {nm}   petz on Nov 25, 06:43

lol {nm}   tealfan on Nov 25, 09:42

I can generally handle getting openers wrong, but I hate getting long weekend openers wrong. Just adjust and rip off the bandaid already! {nm}   RogerMore on Nov 25, 10:07

I feel your pain! -3M sucks 2B me. {nm}   HollywoodTycoon61 on Nov 25, 11:44

So glad I followed my gut! {nm}   photochick814 on Nov 25, 17:27

i know i learned my lesson on kids movies with Alvin and the Chipmunks. {nm}   wojeck on Nov 25, 22:05

I suspect that BURLS number is too low. Should be closer to $4m with revised figures. {nm}   Rolling_Thunder on Nov 25, 06:10
