Very solid, Dawn got 4.1m. I don't think it will fall off too much from Dawn's OW.

Did Dawn have previews at 8 or 10?

I'm curious how/if the trilogy screenings will be factored into the weekend. Tickets were $20+.

It looks like 10pm. So maybe this isn't quite as impressive. Still, it's a heavy adult-skew so later shows probably don't make a massive difference.

Very important question, I didn't see Dawn till the day after but back then Fox was a bit weird with their times. I know for a fact DOFP was 10pm, but not sure about this.

I'm guessing rolled in with previews. I really don't think they sold a lot. Checked a few on Wednesday around me and they were pretty empty.

Yeah, the one at my theater was only at 6 tickets half an hour before it started. Theaters that put it in one of their biggest auditoriums (like mine did) must have been PISSED

Yeah, should've just kept Spider-Man in there.

Assuming Dawn would have had 6.5M previews if it opened at 7, that would put War at 55.9M. If it was 6M, it'd be 60.3M.

Yes, but with Tomato Law, I think we can shoot higher.  How does 70M sound?

Settle for 66M so I can get 100% in the Derby, Summer Game, and Survivor :)

5 doesn't seem great in comparison to Dawn. 

Should at least land in the $60-65m range at the very worst. Which, given how so many franchises this summer have seen heavily diminished returns, would be really good.

I'm super curious to see how The Big Sick fares. It's performing pretty weak at my theater (last night only sold 4 tickets, the showing that just started sold 8, and it only has 8 other tickets throughout the rest of the day so far), so I'm starting to believe it'll be big in cities but weak in rural areas. 

 

Meanwhile, I'm think some of you underestimated Wish Upon. Everything I'm seeing leads me to believe it's opening over ICAN.

Yes I'm sure a movie about a Pakistani male and white woman hooking up in urban city Chicago sounds like a rural crowd pleaser.
