Saturday morning: Before the big support column enters the market, there is usually a lull at the box office. But the quiet is greatest when the major studios don’t have any new, expansive inputs. Everyone is waiting for Warner Bros. Batman Next weekend, and several sources tell me it’s easily tied for a $100M+ opening, in fact $115M+, advance ticket sales are there to prove it.
That’s despite a 3 hour runtime, and what I’ve heard (haven’t seen yet) is more of a detective story by director Matt Reeves than an earlier Christopher Nolan story. The Dark Knight Action packed movies. iSpot shows that Warner Bros. It has already spent $28 million in US TV advertising (that’s even a huge POV figure for that data agency) across programs like the Winter Olympics, the NFL, good morning america, NBA and . games Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.
Note, Warners is unaffected by these industry expectations at the time of writing. But also note, that they will flop safely. However, no one sees it under $100 million.
Until then, Sony’s Tom Holland-Mark Wahlberg movie, UnknownAnd the Keeps a big comment for the second weekend with 23 million dollars, -48%, after second Friday with $6 million, -61% from last Friday and previews. By Sunday, the movie directed by Robin Fleischer appears to be in Sony’s PlayStation video game $83.1 million.
United Artists Releasing / MGM’s second weekend at Channing Tatum’s dog He also has a good hold rate, at -43%, with a second weekend of $8.5 millionand ten days by Sunday from $29.2 million.
So if everything is going well, why is the weekend box office still bad, with a weekend expected? $58.8 million For all the movies? This weekend alone is -38% of last weekend.
Eighth Weekend of the Year in Pre-Pandemic 2020, Post-Presidents Day Weekend Reached $102.6M per Box Office Mojo (led by the second weekend of sonic the hedgehog at $26.1 million), while the weekend at the same time in 2019 attracted $128 million, led by How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World with $55 million for the first time).
Once again, we need more major studio-backed products, and more meat to bridge the gap between action films and the niche box office. The broad release of Dave Grohl’s horror comedy this weekend studio 666 From Open Road Films in 2,306 theaters you won’t cut it, with appreciation $1.8 million after 725,000 dollars Friday.

At this time two years ago, Disney had a high-end family movie produced by 20th Century Studios the call of the wild Further boosting the box office opened with $24.7 million, although this title was a hollow victory, given its $135 million production cost.
studio 666 56% of critics were not spoiled, the audience had a positive 70% and a recommendation of 49%.
