No drama this week. Everything is par for the course. There is buzz about this month being record breaking, but we kind of hear crap like that all the time.
"Kingsman: The Golden Shower" did exactly what it was supposed to do by earning a solid $39M this weekend. Well done kiddo.
People are using the word 'tanked' for "The LEGO Ninjago Movie". I dunno about that. $20.4M is pretty low but maybe the movie didn't cost an arm and a leg to make. We just don't know yet.
You know your movie has zero street cred when "mother!" outperforms it. "Friend Request" got declined this weekend. The proof is the $2M it earned. Looks like we have our first stinker of the season!
|MOVIE TITLE||RELEASE DATE||OWNER||PRICE||THEATERS|
|American Made||September 29, 2017||Chris O.||$16||3,000|
|Flatliners||September 29, 2017||Crystal A.||$7||2,200|
Remember in "Lord of War" when Nic Cage tripped balls and things were kind of bat-shit crazy? I don't know why, but it crossed my mind. On the other end of the spectrum, Tom Cruise is in another movie with a way too young wife called "American Made". No one cares. Some people might care. $18M worth of people might care.
I do not have much confidence in "Flatliners". I want to see it, but I don't want to pay to see it in theatres, you know? The original did $10M in 1990 in 1,319 theatres. This remake should earn $7.5M this weekend. I mean, it can't be worse than "Friend Request", right? Right? Right.
