How much does a Wednesday opening take away from the Weekend box office compared to if it was a Friday opening?

Recommended Posts

For example according to one prediction Devotion is predicted to open at around 14-15 million (5 day Wednesday-Sunday) and 9.3 million for the weekend (3 day Friday-Sunday)...

Meanwhile Strange World is predicted to open at around 34-36 million (5 day Wednesday-Sunday) and 23.2 million for the weekend (3 day Friday-Sunday)...

So how much would the opening weekend be if they had opened on Friday and therefore they wouldn't have slowed down a little bit because of Wednesday/Thursday? So instead of 9.3 million and 23.2 million where would you put them if they had opened on Friday?

Depends on the film. Is it highly anticipated with a massive fan base? Does it have excellent WOM that builds throughout the week, or are reactions more mixed? Look at Eclipse and how much more muted it’s 3-day was compared to the other Twilight Sequels. But something like Encanto is able to build on a midweek release.
