I think they did it because contractually, they would have lost a lot of screens/theaters if it was entering its third week of release with all of the Christmas movies. This way they contractually got to keep Sisters around longer during the most lucrative time of the year. But they definitely paid for it OW.

I think Sisters has been completed for like a year? Most of the filming was done in July of 2014 lol.

They could've released it at any point this year, but stuck with that date for whatever reason.

It doesn't matter what weekend it opened, people will just coalesce during Christmas. It's a quite good debut in the face of Star Wars.

It did have previews, but SW7 looks like to be a clear winner in highest admissions for an opening weekend so far.

If Alvin 4 follows #3, its headed for $14.3 m OW/$81.9 m total.

It had to deal with War Horse, Tintin and We Bought A Zoo last time and not open against a $700 m + movie. So I'm thinking as the only family film in town it will outpace its predecessor.

Right now I'll give it $95 m off of that opening day.

The absolute lowest I can see it $224 m if it follows HP7 Pt. 2's rushout. It's demos are expanding so it will hold better than that. I'm seeing $243-246 m for now.

the low-end of projections but fucking incredible nevertheless. $63,500,000 for the Friday (non-previews). In December.

Weekend projections:

Low end: Saturday = 10% decline of non-preview Friday (57m). Sunday = 30% decline (40m). 217.5m

High-end: Saturday = 15% increase of non-preview Friday (73m). Sunday = 22% decline (57m). 250.5m

So median puts it at 234m for the weekend.


I would say high end should be a Sunday drop of 10%.

I think it will end up with 235-240M for the weekend.

Fuck early numbers again but yes, incredible. I'm not sure how this OD will ever go down unless episode 8 does it lol

Glad we won't have the it's December excuse. A movie that people want to see will open big no matter when you release it.

The weekday dailies on this are going to be enormous between Christmas and New Years. It's probably going to gross more each day than the new openers do in their 3 day weekends. :P

It will take a while for this opening day to be topped for sure.

The only movie outside of SW Ep. 8 that I think could top this OW tally in the next three years is Jurassic World's sequel. It held very well for a summer tent pole opening to $200 m +. I could see a $225 m + OW for it in the right conditions (ex. competition, marketing, reviews).

Also how funny is it that SW will outgross The Good Dinosaur's total in just its opening day!

I could see Finding Dory do $450 m so Disney very well could see three $450 m + movies in 13 months.

Amazing number indeed, but it does look like it was pretty pre-sales heavy and that could contribute to some frontloading over the weekend. Still $225M-$240M+ is nothing to be disappointed with as it's going to be humongous over the holidays. Also, it was a very dumb decision by Universal to not open Sisters last week. It could have atleast done high-teens.

Jurassic World sequel doesn't have the rabid fanbase necessary to get to a 120.5m OD. You need to have 50m+ in previews at the minimum. Even if the sequel TRIPLES the previews of JW, that would still be less than the 57m SW7 did. I doubt JW has more than 45m in previews, which means it would have to do 75.5m from non-preview Friday to break the record. think that just isnt possible for that kind of film.

though it could maybe top its OW depending on where SW7 OW lands.


JW2 has absolutely no chance to top this opening day, BUT if anything, it could top the opening weekend because it would certainly be less frontloaded.

That being said, it won't top its opening weekend either.

I think Episode IX will be the film with the new OD/OW record.

Mind-blowing for Star Wars. I'll admit that I held out on thinking it would beat Harry Potter's daily record until this week, but it all makes sense considering the HUGE amount of hype surrounding it, December opening theories be damned.

That being said, while the opening record is obviously going to be a slam dunk, I'm skeptical of whether it can reach Jurassic's Saturday record of nearly $70 million. Whereas the fan base (and plenty of general audiences) showed up in full force on opening day, this point may be where we start to see business spread out further over the coming holiday weekdays. That being said, though, it's still in for a mind-bogglingly huge weekend number regardless of how it holds up today and tomorrow.

It would be nice if there was a standard of what a day is. I had always thought it was 24 hours, now we see it has become 29 hours. The next movie that wants to break a record will move previews to 5Pm. Then suddenly Wednesday midnight will be previews.

I realize the industry needs to pump itself up to keep the hype going but it is getting to be too much. This record like Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire's etc needs the asterisk next to it.

From mojo "* The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 record included midnight only screenings while Force Awakens screenings began at 7 PM on Thursday and included Star Wars marathon ticket sales, tickets that were sold for as much as $59.99 each. "

The movie was entertaining, however, a 10 line synopsis of Episode 4 and Episode 7 could be interchangeable. Peoples desire to forget the abominations that were Episodes 1-3 have given huge leeway for favorable reviews. Had the prequels not happened I think most reviewers would be wondering why we have waited 32 years for a remake of A New Hope.
