Theaters will do well with "Downton Abbey: A New Era" in next week.

Most of the overseas market have DA2 drop half from first one. If this play as hint, the next week opening may only be around 15-20m, slightly better with DOTN which was hit hard super bowl Sunday

This should bode well to DS2 second weekend right? But as I can recall, almost every marvel films have their 2nd weekend this empty and shallow. 

If it wasn't for the relatively divisive reception it would probably be one of the best second weekend drops in the genre. Now I'm expecting at least a 60% drop.

DS2 with $7.7 mil thursday

Ouch. Presuming that estimate holds (and doesn't come up $300K like it did yesterday), $70M+ 2nd weekend is probably a stretch now

 

All other holdovers should bounce back fairly well with DS2 dropping hard and Firestarter going up in smoke

Firestarter will probably hit about $5M for the weekend due to Friday the 13th but still an unsurprisingly dismal start overall between the nonexistent marketing and awful reviews. They should've just sent it straight to Peacock instead of doing a hybrid release.

That's BvS level bad...no way to spin that as a good number going into the weekend.  Now, the only hope is a big Friday jump, followed by a big Saturday one...

Although, since I mentioned BvS, I guess that would make Dr Strange's weekend floor BvS's $51.335M...it's nice to set the range, with I guess Deadline's $80M as the top of the range...

I can’t see Firestarter hitting $5m with those previews. In 3,400 locations, wow. 
 

Scream is the only horror film of the year to open over $6m… 

 

January - May have been unusually empty. The only main studios that opened a horror were Paramount, A24 and Universal. 
 

The Black Phone, Nope, Salem’s Lot and Halloween Ends will hopefully perform.

Could Universal/ Blumhouse release The Black Phone on Peacock considering how bad Firestarter is looking to do?

No. They actually have faith in Black Phone.
