Nice for The Benchwarmers. It'll make around $19-20 million for the weekend. Also, very good numbers for Slevin and Take the Lead, although Lead didn't do as great as expected.

Ice Age: The Meltdown had quite a drop, but it is frontloaded. It'll still have a great multiplier.

Downright horrible drop for Ice Age 2 (61% drop if those Friday #'s are true). But it should recover w/ Sat's #'s. But I do remember saying don't expect a great hold by Ice Age 2, because the first one didn't even have a spectacular one, and last week's weekend multiplier was poor, but even I didn't see it falling this much.

Great for Benchwarmers. Decent for Take The Lead
Inside Man just can't stabilize yet it seems. Another poor drop.


Benchwarmers really is the only redeeming part of these #'s...

Yeah they are. Well...even with an amazing internal multiplier, IA2 probably won't even break 35m on the weekend. Ouch.

HOWEVER. BEnchwarmers overperformed, and is looking to break 20m for the weekend.

Nice for TTL. Should break 13m for the weekend

Inside Man is looking at around a 45% drop or so. Should break 8.5m.

SLevin should break 7m I think. Not too bad.

Phat Girlz should get near 3m.

Looks like either IA2 just was really frontloaded due to the fanbase or is getting bad WOM. Either way, it still will break 200m def. but no 250m for this and it will most likely not be the highest CGI film of the year unless Cars underpreforms. Still, its opening was big enough that its a huge succuess.

Wow, pretty large drop for ATL and Ice Age 2.

Not surprised on Benchwarmers. I knew it would appeal more than what people though. Looked pretty funny, hope to see it tonight.

Slevin deserves so much more :(

Ouch for Ice Age 2.

Ok, so I was wrong about the stupid BENCHWARMERS. Too bad, it looks like shit.

TAKE THE LEAD underperformed. I wouldn't doubt it will have good legs, though Easter weekend might help kill it faster.

SLEVIN did alright. It could have been worse. They should release it on DVD in July because I bet it would be a rental hit for sure.

PHAT GIRLZ disappointed.

$200 m is more of a stretch now IMO for Ice Age 2. It has the disadvantage of not having strong weekdays. It could be at $115 by the end of the weekend from say a $33 m weekend. At this point I'm going to peg it at $190ish m.

It should have a nice boost with Easter, and then have a strong 4th weekend due to lack of kiddie films. It'll cross 200m I think but won't get too much after.

Note I predicted a big drop of Ice Age.

I tried to tell you a movie about "people" who have to leave their homes before the dams bust and flood their village might not be everyone's idea of entertainment right now.

I really doubt that's what caused the big drop. It's a frontloaded sequel in April.

Who does?


I really liked The Hot Chick (one of my guilty pleasures), but the rest is really disposable, even Deuce...


Anyways, bad drop for Ice Age 2, proving that CGI films can drop like a rock too.. it'll still make 200 million plus another 400 million or so overseas, so... no reason to be disappointed :smile:

Good opening for The Benchwarmers.

Decent openings for Take The Lead (I wish this had opened higher- hopefully, it will have a nice Saturday increase) and Slevin.

Mighty big drop for Ice Age 2 but it will recover on Saturday and Sunday, I'm sure.

Kind of a boring weekend overall. Meh.

Well, I really am not surprised at The Benchwarmers' number. I mean, it is a baseball comedy and unlike Fever Pitch it does without romantic elements. Should make around $18-19 million over the weekend which would be spot on with my prediction. The Yahoo grade is pretty good, but the legs will be destroyed by Scary Movie 4's release next weekend, so I see a total of around $49 million or so.

Take the Lead disappointed slightly, but it should have good legs and end up with about $47 million.

Bad drop for Ice Age: The Meltdown. Probably the most frontloaded CGI-animated movie I have ever seen thus far. The weekend multiplier will be good, though, so we can look forward to a weekend gross of around $34 million. Still, a 2nd weekend drop of 50% is rather unexpected. Nonetheless, it is a lock for $200 million and still has got a chance at getting close to $250 million.

I can't believe that Stay Alive is still around. It will top $24 million.

Okay drop for Inside Man, but it could have been better. As it seems, the movie will finish with a similare gross as Panic Room, around $95 million.

Great for Benchwarmers, it's good and a nice boost for Schnieder and Spade's careers which were faltering a lot.

Ice Age 2...wow. WOM on this site wasn't so great, so that plus the sequel effect is what I believe happened.

Rest did just ok, but not as bad as they could've.
