going very conservative, 6.4 + 12 + 12 (+0%) + 8.5 (-29%) + 6.1 (-28%) = 45

so even by GP standards being cautious about 50+ makes more sense than 40+ over the 4-day weekend.

 

Glass had 16M Friday after 3.7M previews. I would say 20-22M (Thursday + Friday) is likely.

 

6.4 + 14 + 16 + 12 + 9 = 57M

Not to put a damper on how good this number is, but previews did start REALLY early for this.

 

I’d also like to thank all the trackers in the tracking thread who provided numbers last night. Honestly, we were probably the first people to (“know”) that this was going over 6M.

Ghostbusters is a bit dicier simply because there was a film only four years ago.

 

I think while it's not a sequel, Scoob! could be a surprise breakout for WB. 

It does bode well a bit for SCOOB! but WAG has failed one too many times. 
 

Though I’m much more optimistic about it than Spongebob 3 which’ll do around the same as the first ($80M DOM) and Artemis Fowl which is dying.

Bad Boys For Life has already sold a decent number of tickets for tonight's shows around here. It's not going to be frontloaded.

Not surprised to see the Dolittle movie do bad numbers. The Eddie Murphy one that came out in 1998 is quite good. The 2nd one with the two bears is good too. Recommend those over this sloppy mess.

even if it doens't make it to 20-22 od, i have used 0% bump on sat from true fri which is unlikely. so 45-50 4-day is very conservative.

And both sequels were in the Noughties as well. 

 

I think as tempting as it would be to do a fourth Bad Boys film, Sony should let it end on a high. 

 

 

Exactly, these franchises are a bit more relevant and recent with the target age group.

Jesus Christ, we are in the middle of January and we already got two huge break-outs, cinema is alive again?

 

2020 is off to a fantastic start so far. 

Well 1917 was a 2019 film really. 
 

 

 

Excellent for Bad Boys, a huge preview number. Tragic for Dolittle. 
 

 

Bad Boys doing the numbers Sony would’ve hoped for with MIB International.

hardly tragic for Dolittle, if it opens to 28M then that's an overperformance.

What could DL's preview to FSS multi be? Needs 21.6x to hit 20 3-day.

Sony have a great winter season, with successful sequel run for Jumanji3 although many were skeptical about that opening and china's number.

 

This is followed by the Oscar success of LW and now this BB.

Thats massively great for Bad Boys! I remembered thinking this was going to be another Xander Cage back in the summer of 2019. Also the delay issues had me worried and the first trailer wasn’t very good either.

 

However last minute, Sony amped up the marketing with a solid trailer and TV spots on YouTube and Football games was a big helping! 
 

Doolittle yeah it was doomed from the start. Bad Boys was delayed but is looking to do solid results this weekend! But Doolittle had unappealing trailers and spots, the marketing and posters had Robert Downey Jr looked tired and the movie just looked like something kids would be bored with. 

 

Thankfully Universal had 1917 last week. And their 2020 calendar thus far looks more solid than last year for sure.

Bad Boys trailer had an FF vibe. Even have a shout out to Family. The franchise could have longevity if they play their cards well and it does very well OS. Bad Boys in space before FF in space.

Independence Day Resurgence: not enough Will Smith.

Gemini Man: Too many Will Smiths.

Bad Boys for Life: Just right.

And both those Dolittle-films made over $110-145M+ DOM, which made them big hits.
