Just now, lorddemaxus said:

Wouldn't that previews mean 50 mil 3-day? Don't see the movie being so frontloaded.

Yeah, probably. It's likely gonna skew older than usual for an action movie considering how much time has passed since the previous movie (plus the original now being a quarter-century old movie).

2020 is off to a fantastic start so far. 

I think 2020 is going to be a much more interesting year to watch than last year because of unpredictable breakouts like 1917 and this one. We only started to get smaller breakouts like these ones last year around the second half of the year (with films like Hustlers, Knives Out, and FvF)

Dolittle previews began at 4PM yesterday. Universal will have them soon. The $175M production is expected to bomb this weekend with a $24M-$28M take. Exits for the Robert Downey Jr. were better among families who turned out at 43% on PostTrak with 4 1/2 stars from parents (17%) and 4 1/2 stars from kids under 12 (26%). General audiences at 57% stuck their tongues out at the taking animal movie giving it 2 1/2 stars.
