Holy crap, this weekend is dire. I hope The Mag7 won't crash and burn next weekend either.

At least my theatre ate up the movie. While it was a much scarier movie than it was a good movie, I honestly thought the film had some awesome terrifying moments. And there was more of a crowd than I was expecting; horror movies have typically Ben under performing at my theatre as of late and I thought this would tank even harder but the crowd was probably about the same as Lights Out and Don't Breathe.

Holy yikes. Wingard and Barrett can't catch a break at the box-office. You're Next tragically clunked for reasons completely lost on me, The Guest didn't even receive a wide release, and now this, seemingly their mainstream breakout, is a huge disappointment at the box-office and this time there aren't even rave reviews to ease the burn.

 

If Death Note bombs (and let's face it, it's a live-action anime adaptation, the odds are high) Wingard might start having a hard time getting work. This sucks.

Death Note is Netflix. It is safe.

Really weird case here for sure. Were the early critics more inclined to give it good reviews because of the surprise factor from the movie being a Blair Witch sequel? Can't understand how it can get reviews praising it to high heaven when the reveal happened and then plummeting now.

It was a combination of the surprise factor + horror publications. They probably lost their shit with the reveal. Lionsgate probably thought they had a winner on their hands.

How are those numbers possible with the earlier projections?  Did everyone just stop going to see BW and Bridget around 2pm EST?

M7 and Storks will both do good numbers.

Might be, but being Netflix means it won't get a wide release (or any release to be honest). Won't help Wingard's career as much as a Blair Witch breakout could have even if it gets 100% on RT.

Bridget Jones's numbers are not good, I imagine Universal had low expectations but considering the promotional push, it's not paid off. Luckily the OS numbers will save it especially the UK

 

Heres hoping Mag 7 and Storks can cook up a storm next week

The Blair Witch brand has also been tainted since shortly after inception, too. It's like everyone forgets that that movie faced tremendous backlash after it finally reached wide release because of audiences who 1) got motion sickness while watching the movie or 2) were pissed when it was discovered that it wasn't real (truly the only time in history you could owe a film's success entirely to the Internet). Book of Shadows being a miserable flop the following year pretty much killed the brand once for all (until someone decided to try reviving it here).

Ugh those Bridget numbers. Now some trash outlets will never shut up about Renee destroying her career by changing her "trademark face" or some similar shit.

I know, it sucks. Hopefully she can still get a Golden Globe nomination, at least, although I'm not counting on it given how stacked that category looks to be this year (Beckinsale in Love & Friendship and Field in Hello My Name is Doris are probably locks already).

Just saw Sully; it was alright

 

Was anyone else bothered by prominent placement of Despicable Me headphones in a gift shop when the movie takes place a year and a half before that film came out?

Holy shit, really? Illuminati Entertainment is going to edit history textbooks if we let them.

Honestly, that's not too awful for Snowden. I thought it was easily heading for something wretched like a sub-$5M opening last weekend.

Blair witch sub 10M weekend. Bridget Jones under 9M. This sucks. This really sucks.

horrible for the openers, although Snowden held up about as well as it could.

Don't Breathe and SUicide Squad both with good holds.
