BOM's weekend estimates

1 Paranormal Activity $22,000,000
2 Saw VI $14,800,000
3 Where the Wild Things Are $14,420,000
4 Law Abiding Citizen $12,713,000
5 Couples Retreat $11,097,000
6 Astro Boy $7,017,000
7 The Stepfather (2009) $6,500,000
8 Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant $6,348,000
9 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs $5,600,000
10 Zombieland $4,300,000
11 Amelia $4,025,000


Saw 6 falls even harder than expected, I wonder if Saw 7 will be the last one we'll see. Not a good weekend for the new releases. Most of the other films had minimal falls from last weekend, except WTWTAT.

Yes! This means Saw VII will probably only open to $10M, 3D or not. And the demise of Saw altogether, finally.

Wow. The studios need to stop thinking that its summer. The past three weekends in a row almost every movie has been way lower on the actuals than the estimates.

Saw VI's opening weekend was less than Saw III, IV, and V's opening days. I don't know why they would still make a 7th one. Also bad for Where the Wild Things Are, Astro Boy, and Cirque du Freak. Michael Jackson will probably kill a lot of the movies in the top ten. And G.I. Joe is finally over $150 million.

Well, the 7th one is already planned and probably already started. It's the 8th one that'll be in trouble now...

I think This Is It will have a huge first day then tail off, just like Miley cyrus's concert movie

This should probably be in the next tracking thread but I'll mention it anyway:

The Weinstein Company is reissuing August's flop Halloween II on Friday in time for Halloween weekend. Honestly, I don't know why.


Also despite earlier news that it would be in 3-D, Michael Jackson's This Is It will be screened in all theatres flat. This was confirmed by director Kenny Ortega, as he claimed that it was never intended to be in 3-D in the first place.

Hannah Montana's Concert movie rose 51% on Saturday and then fell only 28% on Sunday and did solid throughout its whole first week.

H2 is coming back to theaters? Oh God, please....that movie was terrible. Do they think that just because the holiday it's centered around is coming up that people will go see a movie they didn't see two months ago? The Weinsteins must be the laughing stock oh Hollywood with the retard decisions they make.

I just found out so far my theater has sold out the IMAX midnight and 2 450+ seat theatres for the midnight of This Is It. Looks like the first day will be pretty damn big.

Hannah Montana: The Movie had a big second day drop.
