Right, but 50 First Dates had Valentine's Day on its first weekend. Check the numbers, had a HUGE bump. {nm}

RS: [JGWIT] high 30s [JBI3D] low 20s [GNOME] high single digits [EAGLN] mid single digits (just below GNOME) secretstalker Feb 06, 13:19

Weak for Hall Pass. {nm} HarryWarden Feb 06, 13:20

Been surprised at traders' apparent skepticism toward [JGWIT] for awhile given Sandler hasn't opened a PG-13 flick to less than $34.2m in dsbman Feb 06, 13:50

Sorry, didn't need to tag that... force of habit. {nm} dsbman Feb 06, 13:51

True, plus teaming him with JANIS is not too shabby... I think what hurts it is that Valentine's Day is on Monday secretstalker Feb 06, 13:51

Good point, although 50 FIRST DATES still opened to $40m 3-day... And if anything, this one seems like less of a straight-up romantic-comedy dsbman Feb 06, 14:00

last time valentines on a monday, Hitch did very well that both weekend and monday {nm} islander Feb 06, 14:06

Good comparison and it had a nice bump on Saturday night. {nm} secretstalker Feb 06, 14:16

Also....directed by the all time great Buy StarBondFund (EURO too) Feb 06, 14:02

Are you saying what I think you're saying? :) {nm} secretstalker Feb 06, 14:31

I don't buy it for JBI3D... Hannah Montana did low 30's with a third of the theaters, and Bieber's fans seem more rabid {nm} Carcharodon Feb 06, 14:13

I think it's possible JB3D does a lot of 12-15yo girls going alone, though, whereas Hannah skewed even younger with moms adding to the sales {nm} dsbmanYTD2011 Feb 06, 14:28

For what it's worth, my 10yro daughter and friends wouldn't be caught dead at that movie... nat1kos Feb 06, 18:31

wait till his friends see it and make him an outcast ... {nm} b4bad Feb 07, 22:45

I have a hard time seeing JBI3D doing less than 30. I would expect it to be around 32-33 with a ceiling of 38. {nm} rdbicking Feb 07, 10:27

My assumption has always been the key demographic is about the same... we shall see... {nm} Carcharodon Feb 06, 16:15

Has anyone ever done any research about the Creepy Adult Demographic for these movies? {nm} hexalogue Feb 08, 09:56

BoxOffice.com just dropped [JBI3D] from 30's to 17mm in it's predictions... {nm} Carcharodon Feb 09, 16:20
