Managers of the study provides a total of $ 100 million in four days. Never mind that this number has not been achieved before. As I have written elsewhere, 2001 was the year the first weekend has gone mad, that 50 million became the new $ 35 million and 60 million became the new $ 40 million dollars. During the past nine years (since May 2002 of course), which had 25 films with $ 100 million plus the total of four days and 18 movies of 100 million + total of three days. I raise this because once again we face a blockbuster Disney is pushing the case of a failure because its opening weekend is not close to record levels. For the story, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opened with 90 million dollars this weekend.
This may not be as big as the last two suites, but it’s a nice gesture for a franchise that virtually everyone agrees is screwed. Whether it be a lesson to Disney’s Chuck Viane (who actually planned U.S. $ 100 million + weekend): That’s your job to reduce expectations, inflate!
The film has done a decent weekend 2.57x multiplier, with a morning of intense activity aimed at children on the track. He scored a B + for Cinemascore, implying that movigoers have little or no standard. The film earned 5.1% of their weekend making the midnight screenings, which is essentially the current standard in general. Obviously, the film is much smaller than the last two films, two of which opened to record numbers. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest opened with $ 135 million in July 2006, breaking the record of three days at the time. In May 2007, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End reported $ 153 million in 4.25 days (was $ 13 million comes through the night on Thursday), $ 114,000,000 and its distance from Friday to Sunday is still more high for a movie does not open on weekends Fri-Sun Independent. When you figure in inflation and hit IMAX/3D fare, On Stranger Tides of attendance much lower than in the past two suites, or a little over half of tickets sold in the first result.
Speaking purely domestic rates which may be the same as last year’s Shrek: The Final Chapter, which will be open to a much smaller than its predecessor, but it was a surprisingly strong grip. A similar 3.3-weekend and the final factor would give the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides $ 304 million by the end of the home, or what the film first and third, I’m done.
In the worst case? Well, the film is terrible, and there are no moments that deserve repeat business, and Shrek had a fairly weak Memorial Day slate to compete with (Prince of Persia and Sex and the City 2) and a weekend almost empty third. Pirates of the Caribbean 4 has-two punch of dynamite Kung Fu Panda 2 and unprecedented cons mouth of II, and the opening of the X-Men: First Class, June 3 Weekend followed by 2.7-to-final multiplier Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End seems more likely to give the film an interior of 244 million. Been the case in recent years, the number of overseas win. The fourth film Pirates of the Caribbean has already won the 256 million seconds of dollars worth of overseas (which is a record for openings abroad), which gives the film a value near-record U.S. $ 345 million weekend -end worldwide total opening (Spider-Man 3 had a 375 million U.S. dollars worldwide opening four years ago).
Bridesmaids was an incredible weekend in possession of the second decreased by only 20% of the $ 21,000,000 the second weekend and 59 million U.S. dollars ten days in total. This is a minor decrease of Hangover (-27% in two weeks) and Wedding Crashers (-24%). Unless I’m forgetting something, you go to almost thirteen and a similar situation, where R-rated There’s Something About Mary has fallen to only 8% in two weekends. It ‘s too early to predict that Kristen Wiig vehicle is approaching a total of $ 175000000, and Cameron Diaz know, but more or less guarantees that the most entertaining film in 2011 will make its $ 100 million. big test, of course, is how the charges against Hangover II, which opens on Thursday.
It is also anticipated Thor more during the week, which again reached this weekend. Still no tears for God of Thunder, Thor as increased $ 15.5 million for its second weekend and finished its third weekend with a strong U.S. dollar 145 million. It is well north of $ 400 million worldwide. Fast five now stands at 186 million dollars in the country, and has crossed the 500 million U.S. dollars mark in the world. Beaver expanded to 168 theaters, but was DOA, with a $ 190,000 make one total $ 582,000 home. The other big story this weekend was scorching debut limited in the midnight of Woody Allen in Paris. The film was released on six screens, plus a jaw-dropping $ 96,000 per screen. It’s actually best first Allen never limited. It is also the average of the fifteenth ever more per screen, the fifth of something more than two screens, and the fifth highest per screen average action movie. Wow …
That’s it for this weekend. Join us on Memorial Day, when Paramount / Dreamworks unleashes Kung Fu Panda 2 (next review) and Warner Bros. launches Hangover 2 (Wed revision night / morning, Thursday). Until then, take care, keep reading and commenting.
So really, we’ll just go to a movie whose box office that counts …
