Pretty solid! American Sniper did 5.3 Thursday in 2015 (MLK weekend though). Seems like it could be good for 40m+

Couldn’t find Lone Survivor’s number though.

The Revenant was 2.3m the same weekend in 2016. That did 39.8m. Same multiplier would put 1917 at 56.2m.

Dunkirk was July though right? Lone Survivor multiplier would put it at 81.9m. Obviously not going to happen, but R-rated war movies/dramas that expand in mid January tend to have large multipliers.

Hopefully Underwater jumps big time here and overseas, K-Stew needs the gold!

Uh 3.25m is incredible. The Revenant seems like the best comparison to me and that would put it’s Friday at 20m+. Even if it’s slightly more frontloaded than that it would get to 55m OW, essentially matching Dunkirk without summer or Nolan and a R rating.

This may just have titled the Oscars. This will be a massive crowd favorite going into the awards.

This also validates my long held belief that WB should have never released Dunkirk in the summer. They should have done a extremely limited release on Christmas and then gone wide on MLK. It would have broken 200m+ and increased its Oscar chances.

No surprise but this site under predicted just Mercy. Should do 10 to 12 million this weekend. With an A+ cinemascore strong word-of-mouth we could lick it out to 50 million total

In our weekend predictions thread a fair amount of people predicted bigger opening for JM.

I was thinking $40m but yeah based on The Revenant $50m is now possible.

This is probably the biggest GG winner impact we have seen.

Go 1917. Could this be the definitive World War I film? Paths of Glory found forgotten.

A breakout for 1917 doesn’t surprise me after the screens I covered yesterday. The matinee shows were made up of the same crowd who went out and saw Midway, but unlike that film, this actually remained busy at night and the night audience skewed much younger and more female.

I think this was always going to do well based on Midway, but the GG’s definitely gave it a breakout boost.

Witg its WOM it should play very well for a while. I am just happy it opened closer to 4 million. I was worried those mid single digits might come true.

I was wrong about Just Mercy. It was closer to Selma than to On the Basis of Sex. A $10m+ weekend and a total of over $40m will be great for it.
